I am a descendant of Moses Johnson (1794-aft 1860) of Ways Crossing (Richmond Hill area now) in Bryan County, GA. I believe he was the son of William Johnson (c.1754-c1835) They remained in that same spot from 1800 1860's then started spreading out.
CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME, FIND WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND HOW THEY GOT TO THAT AREA. William Johnson (even back then) was such a common name.
I also have an Mrs. Ann Johnson in 1820 census near there and cannot determine who her husband was before she became a widow by the 1820 Census.
They were all illiterate at that time, so no Wills or Bible records ever created.
