In my search for my line I have some information possibly on your Josephine Ellen. I believe that my gg-grandfather was first married to an Elizabeth Johnson. According to LDS file, they had a daughter, McAuley. She married Sion F. Ellen in 1845. From another researcher I have just learned that in the Will of Rigdon Johnson probated in July 1854,it names among others, his deceased granddaughter McAuley Ellen...and her children: Elizabeth Ellen, Sarah Ellen, and Josephine Ellen. Rigdon Johnson married Fanny Baucom in 1847 so these heirs would have to have been from a previous marriage.My gg-grandfather remarried so I believe that Elizabeth died perhaps soon after childbirth. As McAuley seems to be an unusual name. I do feel that this Rigdon Johnson is connected. I am not sure of all the dates however. I also find it interesting that Josephine Ellen is found living with Alsey Johnson. Alsey and McAuley sound a lot alike. I would like to know if you find out how all this ties together. I am actually searching for the parents of Levi Ferrell m. (1)Elizabeth Johnson(2)Maria Collins. Email me if you like I would like to know more about your line.
