Archibald "Medlin" Johnson
I am trying to locate any info. possible on Neil ( Neal) Johnson born est. 1800 in Moore County North Carolina. He was married to Bessie Stokes and had one son Archibald Medlin Johnson. Family talk thru the generations mentioned Neil being raised by another family. Thoughts were he may have been raised by the Medlin family,hence the middle name of their son.
I have found Neil's name on the early Moore County census and showing more children but can make no connections.
We found the name of Neal ( Neil) on Archie's death certificate. I found the name of Bessie on Archie's first marriage record to Mary Catherine Clark in 1860 ( Columbus County N.C.)but on Archie's death certificate her name shows as Maggie Stokes.
I have been at dead end for years and need to keep digging.
