I have just started researching my Nutt-Johnson family connections.I am looking for descendants of Priscilla Nutt b 17 Aug. 1859 in AR, (census says Feb. 1860) died 16 Jan. 1936 in Amity, Clark Co. AR. She married on 5 Nov 1885, John Carroll Johnson b 26 Nov 1861 in AR and d 23 Feb. 1937, in Amity, Clark Co. AR. Both Priscilla and John are buried in the Friendship Cemetery, Amity, Clark Co. AR.
I have found them on the 1900, 1910, 1920 census for Clark Co AR. Their children as best as I can determine are: Nettie b March 1888, Annie B. b Oct 1891, (I think she married Silas Linson Ault, Pike Co. marriage records) Thomas Washington 17 Feb 1894, Sarah T. b Aug 1896 and Edna R. b May 1899.
I did find Washington and wife Annie living next door to his parents on the 1920 census, but have no idea who his sisters married and what happened to them. Any help in tracking these girls would be greatly appreciated.
I think Priscilla’s parents are John Nutt and Margaret Orsborn (Osburn). Priscilla’s birth date on her tombstone does not agree with her ages as given on the census data. John and Margaret Nutt, on the 1860 census, name their children as Josephus 9, Cilla J. 4 and Sally 1. Also in the household are, Hexie Johnson 21, Hilliard D. Nutt 18 and Doephus P. Nutt 16. On the 1870 census, Margaret (indexed as Morgan) is alone in the household with children; Josephus 16 Priscilla 14, Sallie 12 and John 8.So, my Priscilla may not belong to John and Margaret Nutt.
John’s parents are Robert W. Johnson and Louisa M. Walton. Robert W. had a brother, James Darling Johnson married to Martha E. Coker, and brother Thomas Washington Johnson married to Permelia Ann Bassett.Grandparents of John Carroll Johnson are John C. and Bethany Young Johnson.Any help locating this family would be deeply appreciated
