Thank you so much for this information.I appreciate it.
Are you by any chance tracking the Johnston/Johnson families in this area of AL?
Because the clerks and census takers were seldom consistent in writing down what they thought they heard as a last name, I am having a hard time with this Johnston/Johnson group.
Since so often groups of related families continued to marry cousins and distant cousins or family members related to a spouse, I thought I would ask in case you are also following the Johnston/Johnsons.
My line was in Pike Co. before the civil war began, but I've had little luck in sorting out which ones were the ancestors of my civil war Great Great Grandmother, Louisa Ann Johnston.Her parents were listed as Isaac (Ike) Johnson and his wife Martha.
