Re: A fourth year update for The Johnson Family Cemetery
I just posted this message on the Hawbottom Cemetery guest book:
I descend from Ann JOHNSON m James FLEMING Sr (b c1744, LT wounded in RevWar). Ann's father was John JOHNSON Sr, whose 1767 Frederick Co, MD Estate lists co-heirs as John JOHNSON Jr; Thomas JOHNSON; Hannah WELCH; and James and Ann FLEMING. Circumstantially it appears this John JOHNSON Sr was a brother of Thoms JOHNSON Sr b 1712, and therefor a son of Henry JOHNSTONE and Margaret. Is anyone familiar with this branch of JOHNSONs in Frederick Co, MD?
I lived for 20 years near Hawbottom, in the village of Harmony (Myersville mail), in a house I built on Coxey Brown Road. I would appreciate feedback of any kind from any one - I am trying very hard to learn more about my JOHNSON ancestry.
Thanks for a great website. Jim Bartlett
ps - I'm not sure where my John JOHNSON Sr was buried before 1767...
