Never know with these old post, but I will try. I am currently documenting all the Johnson/Johnston families in Elbert prior to 1850 to find my ancestors.
I am curious how you determined his birthplace and when his parents moved to Elbert co. I am wondering if you found something I missed.I only show four J Johnsons in Elbert co in 1850 that are even close to his age.
Any additional info or documentation notes you have would be appreciated.
These are the ones that show up on the Elbert Co census: J Johnson age 21 son of Daniel M Johnson J Johnson age 16 son of Anthony WJ Johnson age 17 Thomas
They all show up in the 1840 census in Elbert Co. The only one I question is one that list J Johnson age 26 son of JJ I believe J to be Jesse whose age in all later census put his birth as 1822 and the head of household, JJ shows up as James J Johnson in 1840 census of Elbert.
