Several databases (on WorldConnect and other sites) give ancestors for Isaiah Johnson going back to an immigrant John Johnson (GGGF) who settled in James City County, Virginia around 1620, with intervening generations in Southside Virginia (Isle of Wight). However none offers any sort of sources beyond citing each another. Can anyone point me toward original sources, such as wills, bible records from Virginia and North Carolina, or the like.?So far I have not found anything on GenWeb archives, etc.
Isaiah Johnson had been in Bertie County, North Carolina by 1747, when he appeared as a witness to a deed.Two decades later he and his sons Isaiah and Elijah were named by their maternal grandfather John Oxley in his will dated 24 Feb 1767.Isaiah and Mary had moved south to Dobbs County on the Neuse River by 1758, and he sold his land in Bertie to another son, John, in 1767. He died around 1799.
