I am searching for information on the Johnson family and Nettles family in MO. Any and all information is greatly appreciated.
JAMES JOHNSON was born 1858 in MO. He married SARAH NETTLES Abt. 1876 in Doniphan, MO, daughter of SHADARACH NETTLES and ELIZABETH GRAHAM. Sarah was born November 05, 1842 in MO.
James is recorded on the 1880 US Census in Doniphan, Ripley Co., MO. Married to a Sarah Nettles. Sarah was previously married to a Francis M. Hinkle of MO.
Children of Francis M. Hinkle and Sarah Nettles: (According to the 1880 US Census still living with Sarah and James) Francis Hinkle b 1865 Shadrach Hinkle b 1868 Carter T. Hinkle b 1870 William M Hinkle b 1873
Francis either died or left Sarah between 1873 when their last son William H. Hinkle was born and 1876 when the State Census shows Sarah married to James Johnson. Living next door to Sarah and James was a Martha Johnson widow and her two children William and Martha A. I suspect these as being James’s Mother and siblings. It would appear that Martha was married to a Samuel Johnson on January 16, 1851 in Doniphan according to marriage records BUT all this is speculation at this time. According to his son Perry's marriage certificate, James and Sarah were living in St. Louis, MO in 1908 but I haven't yet been able to find them on the 1910 US Census.
Child of JAMES JOHNSON and SARAH NETTLES is: PERRY SAMUEL JOHNSON, b. March 1878, Doniphan, Ripley Co., MO; d. July 18, 1921, Ft. Williams, Cape Elizabeth, ME. He married Pansey Ann Tufts of Portland, ME in 1908.
