Really hit jackpot today, my ancestors were the above, their son, Capt. John Henry Byars b.1734 m. Elizabeth Thomason (Thompson?) b.1735, they had a son called Capt. George Byars (1771-1843 )m. Sarah Watkins (1794-1869), their son William Peyton Byars (b.1792-1873) m. Nancy Sutton.

These two moved their family to southern Illinois (Marion Co.) in 1827 and the family pretty much stayed there until WW2 when my oldest brother,

William D. Byars, Jr., relocated to Oklahoma. His only son,

William Robert Byars lives near Tulsa. I've been trying to find info about James Henry's parents and how they came to America & from where.

Believe this is the Byers sept of the Clan Lindsay and they came from Scotland via Ulster in the Plantation of the 1600's.

Do please write me if you have anything to add. Sure hope you find this useful.

Hi David,

My great-grandfather was Greenberry A. Cunningham, son of Jesse R. Cunningham & Mary Jane Miller. Jesse's parents was Thomas Cunningham & Matilda Hayes. Thomas was the son of John Cunningham & Talitha Dodson. In one of the postings you read, I mentioned that Greenberry had a brother, William "Will" Hayes Cunningham and that I was trying to locate living descendants through him, as I can't seem to find any in my direct line. I have dozens of different references for different things. Some are family notes, some are county records, etc. Would love to share information with you. I don't have all of mine typed in as yet, but I'm getting there. Takes a long time, as I'm sure you well know.

A brief history of the Duttons of Dutton

By G.H.Buchan 1984

This work is dedicated to T.D.S.K.Platt Esq. And his family Through whose valued friendship I have enjoyed so many happy hours Both in and around Dutton Hall.


Anyone travelling today along the A533 and seeing the sign ‘Dutton’ could perhaps be excused for thinking that they were about to pass through a village which was hardly more than a name on the map. There is little visible evidence to support any view to the contrary. Few would be aware that within this parish of Dutton man has lived for more than 5,000 years. Few would be aware that while most of Cheshire was forest waste, Roman farmers cultivated crops on the slopes overlooking the River Weaver. Few would be aware that 400 years ago the village was of such importance that the Royal messenger frequently rode between Dutton Hall and Court of King Henry VIII.

Cheshire has been described as ‘the seedplot of gentilitie’. Nowhere in the country is that more evident than at Dutton. The family founded at the Norman Conquest has produced a succession of Knights who have played a vital role not only in the affairs of the county but have influenced the course of the history of this nation. Among the Cheshire nobility, in wealth and prosperity they were unsurpassed. The Dutton estate in the 15th century was the largest in the country. Their home, Dutton Hall, was the finest Tudor mansion in the north west of England.

Of this great house only the name now remains. Yet for those who are familiar with the affairs of that aristocratic family which lived there for more than 600 years the place has an atmosphere which the ravages of time have failed to remove. If in some small measure the account which follows enable the reader to recapture something of that atmosphere then the writer’s efforts will have been amply rewarded.


The story of Dutton stretches back into the mists of time, into man’s primeval past. There is sufficient evidence available for us to believe that primitive man had his home here at least 2,000 years before the Christian era. We know almost nothing about these people. It is only by the artefacts they left behind that we can gauge in some small measure the kind of life they led. As time passed their reliance u0pon hunting slowly gave way to an agricultural based existence which would thrive in the rich soil of the Weaver valley.

The area would be sparsely populated, for the Celtic people lived in small tribal groups right up to the time of the major Roman invasion of 43 AD. By the year 70 AD Chester had become on of the three principal Roman first in the country and played an important role in the military affairs of the forces of occupation. Important industrial sites were established at Northwich and Wilderspool. The Roman road from Chester to Wilderspool passed close to the boundary of Dutton.

However, it is not until the 4th century that we have definite evidence of Roman occupation in the parish. Coins bearing the image of the emperor Constantine the Great, together with domestic artefacts show conclusively that there was a settlement here around the year 360 AD. What kind of a settlement that was we can only speculate. It is likely that there was a small villa and farmstead, for sites with a southern aspect overlooking a river valley were popular with Roman settlers. How long they stayed here following the departure of the legions we cannot at the moment say. Future evidence from the soil may answer that question. But it is quite conceivable that people continued to live here up to the influx of the Saxon invaders in the 6th and 7th centuries.


It is when we come to consider Saxon Dutton that we can become more positive in our assertions. The origin of the name ‘Dutton’ is disputed by scholars. Some say that it was called ‘Duddatune’ or ‘Dudda’s farm’ after the Saxon who founded it. We know that by the year 1000 AD it was called ‘Duntune’ which would be translated as ‘the farm on the hill’.

Around the year 1060 Duntune was divided between two land-owners, one named Ravenna, the other Edward.

As we know from our history books, in the year 1066 William, Duke of Normandy invaded England and defeated the Saxon King Harold at the Battle of Hastings. William thereby became king of England by right of conquest. He spent the next ten years going up and down the country imposing his will upon those of his Saxon subjects who found it hard to live under a Norman lord.

By the year 1086 things had quietened down and life was returning to some semblance of normality. William decided that he would carry out a survey of all his kingdom. To accomplish this he sent his servants across the length and breadth of England. They visited almost every parish, and recorded what they found there. This mass of information was written down in a book, the Domesday Book, so named because the records it contained would stand until the end of time.

When William’s recorders came to Duntune what did they find? They found that everything belonged to the Earl of Chester who had divided it into three parts.

The first part was held by one of the most powerful men in Cheshire, William fitz Nigel, Baron of Halton. Before the Conquest it had been waste land. There were two families living there.

The second manor was owned by a Norman named Osbern, who leased it to Edward, it’s former owner. Edward was a freeman and lived in Duntune with three other families.

The third and largest manor was held by Odard. It is in the story of Odard and his descendants that our interest lies, for Odard was the first of the Duttons, of Dutton. Tradition has it that Odard was a resident of Normandy, who in the company of Nigel, who became first Baron of Halton, was part of Duke William’s invading army. He was probably given the land at Dutton in recognition of his services. The Domesday Book records that there were three families living on Odard’s manor, and that there was a large wood with a hawks eyrie.

An understanding of the story of the Duttons, of Dutton is made easier by constant reference to the family tree at the beginning of sections II, III and IV.

Odard came to England with William, the Conqueror. Probably as a reward for his services he was given the land at Dutton, held through the Earl of Chester.
Hugh, son of Odard inherited his father’s land in Dutton.

Hugh, son of Hugh had the lands which his father held confirmed to him by William, Baron of Halton. Hugh had three sons. The second, Adam, was the ancestor of the Warburtons of Arley.
Hugh de Dutton, son of Hugh married the daughter of Hamon Massy, Baron of Dunham Massy. He had four sons.
Hugh de Dutton, son of Hugh extended the Dutton holding by purchasing the township of Little Leigh, half of Barnton, and Preston nigh Dutton.
During his lifetime, in the 1216, there took place one of the most colourful events, not only in the history of the Duttons, but also in the history of Cheshire. It would appear that Randle de Blunderville, earl of Chester was besieged by the Welsh in the castle of Rhuddlan. He despatched a messenger to his Constable of Chester, one Roger de Lacy, to come with all haste to his assistance. At that time there was a large fair taking place in Chester. Roger gathered together not only his own men at arms, but also every fiddler, player, minstrel, lout and raggamuffin that he could find. He then lead this motley army out of Chester towards the Welsh border. When the Welsh saw the great multitude heading in their direction they raised the siege and fled. In gratitude, the Earl of Chester gave Roger de Lacy control of all fiddlers, shoemakers and vagrants in the county. Roger transferred control of the fiddlers to Hugh Dutton and his heirs. The custom gradually became one of licensing the musicians in the county. No minstrel could exercise his art unless granted a license by the Dutton Court, held annually on the feast day of Saint John the Baptist in Chester. The last court for this purpose was held in 1756.

Hugh de Dutton purchased land in Aston which adjoined his estate at Dutton. There in 1236 he built a chapel of ease. It was situated between the River Weaver and Dutton Park at a place called Poos-eye. Poos-eye means literally ‘a poole by the river’. The Prior of Norton promised Hugh Dutton that he would provide a chaplain to officiate and keep a lamp burning at divine worship. In 1315 Hugh de Dutton (IX) sued the Prior of Norton for failing to provide a priest.
We do not know exactly where Poosey Chapel stood. In 1660 it had fallen into decay, and all trace of the building has subsequently disappeared.

Hugh de Dutton (VI) died without issue and the estate passed to his brother Thomas.

VII. Thomas extended the Dutton estate in 1244 when he purchased the hamlet of Clatterwigge in Little Leigh. He appears to have found it a drag going all the way to Poosey Chapel, because he was responsible for building another chapel close to his manor house at Dutton.

VIII. Hugh, son of Thomas purchased the manor of Barterton. In 1281 he built a mill and weir on the River Weaver. He died in 1294.

Hugh, son of Hugh was born on the eighth day of December, 1276, and the record of his baptism the following day in the church of Great Budworth is the earliest one recorded for the Dutton family.
Thomas, son of Hugh was born in 1314. It was during his lifetime that the fortunes of the Dutton family reached a peak. He purchased the remaining lands in the parish thereby becoming Lord of all Dutton. He died in 1381.
Lawrence, son and heir of Sir Thomas Dutton married twice but had no issue by either marriage. In his will made at Dutton in the year 1392 he bequeaths his body to be buried at Norton Priory. On his death in 1392 the Dutton inheritance descended to Peter Dutton, eldest son of Lawrence’s younger brother Edmund.
Peter, son and heir of Edmund Dutton married Elizabeth daughter of William Butler, Lord of Warrington. He was pardoned by King Henry IV for taking part in the Hotspur rebellion. He died in 1433.
John, son and heir of Peter died in 1445.

It would appear that from looking at their history, the Duttons enjoyed a good fight. Where there was trouble there was invariably a Dutton.

In the year 1356 England was engaged in the 100 years war against the French. The famous chronicler, Froissart records that at the Battle of Poicters on 19th July, a Dutton was one of the four Cheshire squires who fought with distinction alongside Lord Audley. The English, under the Black Prince, won a decisive victory.

And again, in 1415, at the Battle of Agincourt, Sir Thomas Dutton with ten men at arms and thirty mounted archers made their contribution to one of the most famous victories in English history, On Saint Crispin’s Day 6,000 Englishmen defeated more than four times that number of French.

Some thirty five years later England was plunged into civil war, a series of battles which we call the Wars of the Roses. The first major battle took place just over the border in Staffordshire on 23rd September, 1459. It was one of the blackest days in the history of Cheshire. The battle was fought at Blore Heath and many Cheshire gentry and their followers took part on opposing sides. Amongst those killed were Sir Thomas Dutton (XIV), his eldest son Peter and his brother John.

After Blore Heath, Sir Thomas’s second son John became Lord of all Dutton. He died childless and the estate passed to his uncle Roger (XVI).

The 17th Lord of Dutton was Lawrence, the son and heir of Roger (XVI). Although he had three illegitimate children, he had no legitimate heir. He gave his bastard son John Dutton a lease of life on the New Manor, Preston Brook, lands in Onston and all his purchased estates in Cheshire. Lawrence died in 1527.


On the death of Lawrence in 1527 there followed seven years of litigation over the Dutton inheritance. The contestants were the Duttons, of Hatton, near Chester, and the co-heirs of a branch of the Duttons, of Dutton. The law suit was settled by the House of Lords in 1534 in favour of one of the most colourful characters in the annals of Dutton, Sir Piers Dutton, of Hatton. As heir at law he gained possession of the Lordships and lands of Dutton, Weston, Preston on the Hill, Bartington, Little Leigh, Ness in Wirral, Little Mouldsworth, Acton, Hapsford, and lands in Clifton, Dunham, Stoke, Picton, Halton, Thelwall, Onston, Middlewich, Stanthorne and Runcorn.

The co-heirs were awarded Dutton lands in Kingsley, Norley, Cuddington, Barnton, Budworth, Whitley, Helsby, Frodsham and Chester.

Piers Dutton was the eldest son of Peter Dutton, of Hatton. He was mayor of Chester in 1513 and knighted by Henry VIII in 1527. At this time Henry was involved in a long and bitter dispute with the Pope. Matters came to a head with the result that the English Church severed its links with Rome, and Henry became its supreme head. Having broken with Rome, the king began the suppression of the monasteries and the confiscation of their assets. He appointed Sir Piers Dutton commissioner for assessing and disposing of monastic properties in Cheshire. Piers was instrumental in suppressing a riot at Norton Priory and imprisoning the ring leaders. So effective was he in the discharge of his duties that he received personal commendation from the King himself.

Sir Piers married twice. His first wife was Elinour, daughter of Thomas Leigh, of Adlington. His second marriage was to Julian, daughter of William Poyns, of Essex.

For five years Sir Piers and his family lived in the old manor houses at Dutton. This house stood between the road and the modern Dutton Hall. In 1539 Sir Piers commenced building his new house. He chose a position below the old house, over-looking the broad expanse of the Weaver valley.

The new hall was half timbered in the style of most of the Cheshire Tudor houses of the day. It was built in the form of a quadrangle and was surrounded on three sides by a broad, deep moat. The house had a most imposing porchway around which was inscribed ‘Sir Piers Dutton Knight of Dutton and my lady dame Julian his wife made this hall and building in the year of our Lord God 1542 who thanketh God of all’. Inside the outer doorway was a massive, deeply carved oak door which was reputed to have been the great door of the abbey at Norton. Above and around it were large carved bosses, having sacred signs. In pride of place, either side of the door, were the combined arms of the Duttons and Hattons of Hatton.

One of the most striking features of the house was the great hall and minstrel gallery. It was constructed with lofty clustered columns, supporting a beautiful roof. Round the cornice Sir Piers had carved, in large letters, a long account commemorating the building of the house. ‘by the especial devising of Sir Piers Dutton…..and after long suit before all the nobles and judges of this realm by space of seven years the same Sir Piers was appointed heir male of all Duttons lands’.

The grand house was probably warmed at the marriages of two daughters of Sir Piers on the Feast of Saint John the Baptist 1542. On that occasion all the musicians and minstrels of Cheshire marched in procession before the happy couples.

XIX John (1538-1609)

XX John dd 1614

John dd 1608 Elinour (I) Robert – Lord Gerard

(ii) Robert Nedham – Viscount Kilmorrey.


Sir Piers did not live long enough to enjoy the grandeur of his new hall. He died in 1546 and was buried in Our Lady Mary’s Chapel, at Great Budworth. The Dutton estate passed to his grandson John who married Elinour, daughter of Sir Hugh Claveley, of Eaton.

John died in 1609 and his son Thomas inherited the estate. Thomas had two children. His on John was married at the tender age of 14. He was killed as he fell from a pony on his wedding day. He had married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Thomas Egerton, whose father was the Lord Chancellor of England.

Thomas Dutton’s second child was a girl named Elinour. At the age of 13 Elinour married Gilbert, the second Lord Gerard of Gerards Bromley. On her father’s death in 1614 she inherited the Dutton estate. She became a widow in 1622, and later married Robert Nedham, 2nd Viscount Kilmorrey.

Sir Peter Leycester, the famous Cheshire historian, himself a descendent of the Duttons, was a regular visitor to the hall. He records that Lady Kilmorrey beautified the domestic chapel at Dutton with handsome pews and kept a chaplain in the house. The chapel was used by the local inhabitants every Sunday. The Kilmorreys had a large family of five sons and seven daughters.

Lord Kilmorrey died on the 12th September, 1653 at Dutton Hall. Elinour outlived her husband by twelve years. She died on the 12th March, 1665, the day after the death of her daughter Katherine. They were interred together in the Lady Chapel in Great Budworth Church.

When the funeral cortege bearing lady Kilmorrey and her daughter left Dutton, it brought down the curtain on 600 years of family life and tradition. Never again would Dutton Hall entertain the rich and powerful of the realm.

Much of the Hall built by Sir Piers Dutton was demolished in the 18th and 19th centuries. What remained became a farmhouse, the home of a succession of tenant farmers.

In 1935 the Hall was purchased by Mr.J.A.Dewar, the whisky magnate, who had it taken down, beam by beam, brick by brick, and transported by steam wagon to Sussex, where it was rebuilt as an extension to his private residence.

Last year, I visited East Grinstead and drove out to Stoke Brunswick School which is accommodated in the Dewar home. I think it was one of the most poignant moments of my life when I walked up to that magnificent porch and read the inscription which Sir Piers Dutton had carved more than four hundred years ago. When I passed through that massive carved oak door which had once graced the Abbey of Norton. Standing in the great minstrels hall, I felt very close to the Duttons of Dutton, the family whose story these pages have briefly retold.

I believe we have a connection. Joseph C. Rhae, Jr. wrote a book in 1969 entitled "Ray-Rhea - A family book of Historical and Genealogy for Rhea and Related Families. I found it in the Alabama Archives Library in Montgomery.

According to this book John Rhea, b 1760 married ca 1785 to Mary DeLoach.

Children: Paphry (Popia) Rhea 1790 - Married in 1813 to Elias Breazeale (Brezal), Children Nancy and Mary Katherine (Mar 15 1815 - 1899).

Note: John Rhea b. 1773 according to Ed Foley's info. Another child Mary Rhea married John Buckingham, Child Mary Rhea (who married Gen John Greer)

I descend through Mary Rhea and John Greer.

I am so glad to find someone who connects to my line.

Sorry to enter this discussion so late; have been busy with my "real" job as university faculty member. There is another source published by Burke's, called _Extinct Peerages_, which in our case may be quite fitting; although as late as the John Major cabinet in England, the minister of education was one Baroness Nancy Denton.

There are a number--I'm not quite sure how many but with a concerted effort we could put our heads together and find out--of Dentons who were knights--i.e. Knights Bachelor--and were entitled to be called "Sir" So-and-So.

At least three Dentons were knighted by Queen Elizabeth I in 1603, the year she ascended the throne.

Yes, the Royal College of Arms in London is _the_ source; in the U.S. _Burke's Peerage_ is good place to start.

John Ottinger, can you add anything to this discussion? I'm at my computer without reference books handy.

-- [ From: Sue Montgomery-Cook * EMC.Ver #2.5.3 ] --

Hi Carol!

It seems that our long-ago Dentons were pretty spiffy guys! There was a baron and a couple of knights, but I don't know much beyond that.

There are several towns called Denton in England, but our Dentons came from around Yorkshire. On the Denton web site, on my links page, in the part about 'of special interest to Dentons' there are some links to sites about Yorkshire. Some of them have maps and I've located some of the Denton towns. Perhaps someone on the list knows more about me about how some Dentons came to merit their own Coat of Arms and what the process was. I suppose to be absolutely correct, we would have to research back in our own lines to find the precise Coat of Arms for our line, but apparently even then it was not a static design and changed as to position in the family of the men, etc. I'm really unsure about all this, but we are all learning it together!

A great deal of our Rev. Richard Denton family information in England came from the parrish records of Coley's Chapel in Halifax, Yorkshire, England where he was a minister before coming to America.

regards all of this. Does this mean Dentons were landed gentry, titled gentry or royalty. I have a friend who is from England and she says most people who came from an area had their family history in the local parish church so is there a "Denton" England? How would one get a coat of arms done?

==== DENTON Mailing List ====


I have a TENTATIVE connection for our Rev. Richard Denton's ?? father who was married 2 Mar 1590 (no location). He is SIR RICHARD DENTON with wife SUSAN. This was from Records of Worley, Halifax, Yorkshire, England from a former Denton researcher (now deceased).

Of course, we know that our Rev. Richard Denton was baptised 10 Apr 1603 in Worley, Halifax, Yorkshire, Eng. There is a record also for Sir Richard Denton's daughter, Susan, baptized 21 Dec 1600.

Any comments?

James Marcus Hayes is my great grandfather and great grandfather to Rita Baker (posting 7-25-04). We were given the following information from the 1910 Census in Tarrant County, Texas:

1910 census Tarrant County, Texas

JM Hayes was born on November 7, 1881 in Texas and died March 10, 1948. His first wife was Francis Rhoades. When she died in 1910 (we think) along with her son (we think), JM married her sister Dovie.

We are now trying to find his parents either in Texas or Alabama. I have searched Tarrant County cemeteries but haven't found Hayes family that comes close. Does anyone have any information? Thank you!

Sian C. Crelia 1845-1919
Sian Carter Crelia was born in May 1845 in White Co. Tenn.
At age 5, Sian Carter was living with his father James T. Creeley (age 64), his mother, Levicey; and his sister Margarett (age 1) according to the census records of 1850. Abstracts from court records inVan Buren Co. TN indicate that on 1/1/1849 William, Sion C. and Marion Creely were brought to court. William and Sion C. to be returned to their mother. Marion, age 16 last November, was bound to M. T. Gillentine. And on 5/7/1849 William Creely was bound to William C. Haston. and S.C. Creely was to be maintained by Solomon Reece.
Sian Carter is found on the 1860 census in the home of Solomon Reece in Carroll Co. Ark. In 1861, he enlisted in the Confederate army with the Cherokee Division led by Stand Watie.* He was in Co. A, Cooper's Battallion, Stand Watie Division, Cherokee Department, according to his pension application dated Jan 4, 1910.
The following account shows his whereabouts in Feb 1865.
"The springs first reached the dignity of a health resort toward the close of the Civil War. Dr. Jackson was frequently called upon by the sick and wounded of both armies, among whom was Maj. J. W. Cooper, of Cooper's battalion, Cherokee brigade, Confederate army. This officer contracted rheumatism and chronic malarial poison while campaigning in the Southwest, and having obtained leave of absence, he came to Dr. Jackson, in February, 1865. As this section was then occupied by the Federals it became necessary to take refuge in the mountain fastnesses; and a party, consisting of the Doctor, the Major, William Nichols, Sine Creeley, and two others, took refuge in the "rock house," near the present site of the Southern Hotel. Here they lived in archaic simplicity, and in a few months the soldiers had completely recovered." Sian C. Crelia surrendered on June 4, 1865 at Jasper, Newton County, Arkansas and was paroled.

Sian married about 1869 . His wife was Sarah Ann Wilmoth Lucas who was born Aug 1844 in TN, and died Jan 2, 1908 in Carter, Parker Co. TX. She had two children by Mr. Lucas. I have not located Sian Carter and his family on 1870 census, but believe they were in Arkansas because children listed on 1880 census, born through about 1879 were born in Arkansas.

SC Crelia stated on his pension application that he came to Hunt Co. TX on the 18th of Nov. 1879.
In 1880, the family is located in Hunt Co, TX with six children.

In 1900 - Sian, age 59, is on the Parker Co. TX census with Sarah (age 55) and they have been married 31 years.

In 1908 Sarah died Jan 2 in Carter, Parker, TX of pneumonia . She was buried in Dobbs Cemetery, Parker Co. TX. See photo below.

In 1910 Sian lived in Fort Worth at 2019 Ross Ave. and had been there for two years.

Then in 1919 on Feb. 24, SC Crelia died in the home of his son, LA [Lucian Alvin 'Lush'] Crelia, Rt 1, Leonard, Fannin, TX and after Feb. 25 was buried at Dobbs Cemetery (now called Clark Cemetery), near Weatherford, Parker County, TX.
Sian and Sarah had eight children:
William Marion, Vicie Ellen, Mattie Crelia, Robert Edgar, Anna Laura Lee,James Augustus "Gus", Alonzo"Lon", and Lucian Alvin.

Martha Frances Robinson

Posted By: Rosemary Cantrell
Date: Friday, 25 April 2008, at 1:24 p.m.

I am trying to find the correct parents for Martha Frances Robinson. I have found two sets named so far, but I am not sure either one is correct. I have found absolutely no documentation of her prior to her marriage. This is what I know:

Born 7 Jul 1834 in Dekalb Co, TN

Married William Field Robinson on 9 Sep 1855 in Dekalb Co, TN

Died 28 Oct 1909 - not sure where, but likely TN, although GA is a remote possibility.

She had 8 children: John Headly, Ada, Ralph Emerson, Exeriffa, Idella, Solon Lancaster, Pearl Wood, Jeromette.

There is a possibility that her maiden name was not actually Robinson, although everything I have found so far seems to indicate that it was. However, again, no clear documentation.

Does anyone have anything to offer to help me get the link to her parents?

Thanks so much! Rosemary

Moore, Jesse James (I84)
Mrs. Tennessee A. Park died at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Stovall, on Poplar Street, Sunday, Jan. 25, 1903 at 11:45 a.m. after an illness of pneumonia of only a few days duration.

The deceased was born July 26, 1838, in Walker County, Texas, near Huntsville.

She moved to McLennan County in the early fifties and was married to W. B. Park in May 1856. Moved to Ellis County in the fall of 1870 and had been a resident of this community ever since, with the exception of a few years recently spent in Norman, Oklahoma.

Her husband died a little over eighteen years ago, and she was left to assume the whole responsibility of rearing a large family of children consisting of six girls and two boys, all of whom are highly respected Christian ladies and gentlemen and are left to mourn for the dear mother whose life work ended last Sunday. She had been a consistent member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for more than thirty years and was a faithful, untiring Christian worker. Hers was a life of unselfishness and charity that offers to us useful lessons. She was not unmindful of the end, yet she dreaded it not but with a bright hope born of Christian faith cheerfully awaited the expected summons and peacefully passed to eternal happiness and rest.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Clay Collier at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church Monday afternoon at two o'clock and a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends were present to listen to the words of truth and wisdom uttered by Rev. Collier in paying the last sad tribute to the departed, after which the remains were consigned to the tomb in the cemetery here to await the resurrection morn.

Five of her daughters, Mrs. M. D. Garvin, Mrs. C S. Credille, Mrs. J. D. Stovall, Mrs. H. W. Garrett, and Mrs. G. W. McWhirter were at her bedside during the entire time of her last fatal illness. Another daughter, Mrs. Allie Spencer of Norman, Okla., would have reached here in time for the funeral, but missed connections at Fort Worth and did not reach here until Monday night. The two sons were absent. T. B. Park lives in Hale County and the nearest railroad station is sixty miles. Rev. Sterling Park is in New York City, where he is attending a theological college. The family has the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends in their sad bereavement.

Their tall marble tombstones in the Italy Cemetery are similar in appearance.

Hello Robert,
I've just returned from the archives where I tried to sort out Elisha & Elijah Chambers who lived in Mena or Ink, Polk County, Arkansas. Elisha is my ancestor and many have said he had a twin brother, Elijah. Here's what I was able to find on Elijah. He was in the 1860 DeKalb Co, TN census. He was age 32, b. TN, wife Elizabeth age 26 b. TN. They had children: Amanda age 8, Laura age 7, Martha A 5, Helen 3, Sophronia 1. Also with them is Milly Cantrell age 50 widow b. NC.

1870 census Carroll Co, TN. Elijah is age 41, Elizabeth 38. additional children are Belle age 9, and Edmond age 4. Milly's last name looks like Catsell this time and she's age 75. I didn't find him in the index for

1880 in either TN, AR, KY or MO, so if he was alive he didn't have children under age 10. Elisha was in TN in 1850(living with Jane Gay age 50), 1860 he's married and Jane Gay lives with them,(couldn't find him in 1870), and 1880 he's in Van Buren, TN. He must have moved to AR shortly after the census for I have a land record for Polk County, AR in 1881. He is buried in AR. His children used the names Elisha & Elijah many times, so you'll find younger Elijah's in AR records.

The brothers Elisha & Elijah served in the Mexican War. Both were in Co. F, 3 Tenn Inf, enlisting Oct 1847, and discharged Aug 1848. Elisha drew a pension of $8 per mo. starting when he was age 62. I can't find where Elijah drew. I still didn't determine if they were twins. The ages on the war records differ by a couple years, but all the family still insist they were twins. Hope this helps. Donna

Hello Dale,
I am interested in Elisha & Elijah Chambers. I have found Elisha's Mexican War record and pension records, but only found where Elijah enlisted and was discharged, which were the same dates as Elisha. I did not know they married twins or their cousins. Elisha mar. Mary Ann Jane Johnson Nov 21, 1850 in DeKalb Co, TN. Who was her twin? How was she related to Elisha? Elisha & Mary Chambers are my gg grandparents. Donna 
Chambers, Elisha (I15675)
Q. Give the full name of you father: born: at: ; the county of: state of: . He lived at . Give also any particulars concerning him, as official position, war
services, etc.; books written by,etc.

A. Archibald W. (Hennessee); Bur___(?) Burke? county, North Carolina; lived there till 6 yrs. old and the came to Tenn.: J.P.?

Q. Maiden name in full of your mother: . She was the daughter of (full name) and his wife (full name) who lived at:

A. Jane Neal; Wm. Neal; Hannah Neal; East Tenn

Q. Remarks on ancestry. Give here any and all facts possible in reference to your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., not included in the foregoing, as where the lived, office held, Revolutionary or other war services;what country the family came from to America; where first settled, county and state; always giving full names (if possible) and never referring to an ancestor simply as such without giving the name. It is desirable to include every fact possible and to that end the full and exact record from old Bibles should be appended on separate sheets of the size, thus preserving the facts from loss:

A. My father Archibald Hennessee was the son of James Hennessee. My great grandfather came from Ireland and settled in N.C. Wm. Neal on my mothers side lived in East Tenn. My father and mother were born in Sept. 1802.

Q. Give the names of all the members of your Company you can remember: (If you know where the Roster is to be had, please make special note of this.).

A. At the first organisasion. A list of the name of Co. D 16th Tenn. reg. Capt. P.H. Coffee, 1st Lt. Geo. Marchbanks,...

Listed were J.P.K.(?) Hennessee and H.M.Hennessee.
(Complete list available on request...DAH.)

There are several more that I cannot remember. I have a history written by T.A. Head of Co. K of the 16th Tenn. also of 8th 28 35th and 51st which he pic____ the scroll with name of each of Wright's brigade but Head was captured at Kennesaw Mt. and did not know much about what to write only what was told. I know that he failed to give the names of several that were killed and severely and mortally wounded. My brother Lt. J.P.(?)A. Hennessee was severely wounded at Murfreesboro and was so badly wounded at Atlanta which are not mentioned in the Head history. I have the History of the 16th Tenn. and 4 other reg. which gives an accurate account of their deeds which I will loan or sell you for $2.00 if you want it. I am willing to do my best to help to make history for the old South. While in the army made as good as soldier as I could. At Jonesboro Ga. my company only had 2 officer and 4 privates. I was one of the privates.

All having been killed, wounded and missing. at the battle of Jonesboro Ga. 45 mi. below Atlanta where Hood came to Tenn. I was barefoot till I had blood blisters on the bottom of my feet. I with hundred of others was bare footed and sent from Cedar town Ga. to Blue Mt. Ala. before we could get shoes with very little to eat. we some times drew 4 days rashions that would not last 2 days. when Hood crost Sand Mt. there were 2 days we did not draw rashion, but lived on parch corn. we whiped the life out of the Yankees at Chicamauga, Rasacco, Kenesaw Mt. and at Atlanta and Franklin we drove them out of their breast works at point of the bayonet.

People may talk of verterns of the Worlds war but they saw nothing like the old Confederates when it comes to fighting almost every day from Dalton Ga. to Jonesboro a distance of most 200 miles and but little to eat that not fit to eat. Some cooked while others fought and sent our rashions in the dark. I never could cook, cannot now. We were clad scanty without tents and the water would freeze in our canteen.

I stood picket at Nashville when Hood was there when the snow was 15 in. deep without fire. Need not talk about the world's war veterans. Ceasor, Napoleon or Washington never had better fighters than the Confederate soldier. I would have answered you sooner but both of the balls of my thumbs tore off when I received you questions and have been under treatment of a Dr. I write and am so nervous I am fearful you cannot read my writing.

I am truly yours,

H.M.Hennessee P.S. I do not know of but four of my old co. that are living.

49 Early possible Rich family to New World
Posted by: Albert NasonDate: February 11, 2000 at 18:07:08
of 1299

[this is info I sent to Donita, but which should interest other Riches,
since it concerns the earliest Riches possibly arriving in maryland,
virginia, and N. Carolina]
Here is the info I mentioned about the connection between the barons Rich
and the colony of Virginia. The Dictionary of National Biography, a sort
of historical who's who in England, has many entries under "Rich".

--Richard Rich, first baron Rich, was the unscrupulous lawyer of Henry
VIII, who supposedly forged evidence and gave tainted testimony that
condemned Sir thomas More to be beheaded. Maybe this is so, but we never
hear Rich's side. I have read that he was a devout Catholic himself, and
his almost photographic portrait by Hans Holbein the younger shows a
handsome sensitive face, rather sad. Holbein also did a portrait of Lady
Rich, who looks like a onetime glamourous woman who ran to fat early in
life. The first baron was father of the second baron, who was father of
the third baron, called "the rich Lord Rich"--the family had gained many
estates formerly monasteries.

--the 3rd baron Rich, the "rich Lord Rich" married the beautiful Penelope
Devereux, sister of the Earl of Essex, the aging Queen Elizabeth's
boyfriend, executed by her in 1601 (Lord Essex was beheaded, not
Penelope.). Penelope left Lord Rich, and 5 or 6 children by him and moved
in with Charles Blount, Lord Mountjoy and they had 5 or 6 children. I
think both the large North Carolina families of Blount and Rich are
related to these people, though not perhaps Penelope's descendants. Her
illegitimate and legitimate children got along well enough but there were
so many I think some might have come to the new world, since they were not
ALL rich, or Riches.

However, another source was Sir Nathaniel Rich, born 1585?- d 1636,
merchant adventurer, apparently the bastard of the first Lord Rich (says
the Dict of Nat Bio, but I think he may be a grandson, since the first
Lord Rich died on June 12, 1587.) His mother was daughter of John Machell,
sheriff of London. He was given a legal education and became a member of
Parliament and was knighted in 1617 by James I (who gave out titles
lavishly, usually expecting a monetary gift). He was connected with the
Bermudas company in 1616 and bought shares in the Virginia Co in 1619. He
gave lavishly to the colony and died before 26 May 1636, supposedly when
Massachusetts colony sent him a poisoned "antimonial cup". He left his
manor of Stondon, Essex to a nephew Nathaniel, probably Nathaniel Rich who
died 1701.

--Nathaniel Rich d 1701 was son of Robert Rich, by Elizabeth, daughter of
Sir Thomas Dutton. He obtained the manor of Stondon Essex, and so was
probably nephew to the above Nathaniel. He studied law and fought in the
English civil war on the parliamentarian side. he was in favor of the
widest religious toleration, but was opposed to extending the right to
vote, and feared extreme democracy. he was later imprisoned by king
Charles II after the Restoration, but managed to marry anyway, to Lady
Anne Kerr, daughter of Robert Kerr, first earl of Ancrum. By his first
wife, Elizabeth daughter of Sir Edmund Hampden, he had two sons Nathaniel
and Robert. Robert in 1677 succeeded to the baronetcy of his distant
relative and father-in-law, Sir Charles Rich. [In other words, Robert
married his title; did his older brother Nathaniel , without a title of
his own, go to Va. to seek his fortune?]

--the first Lord Rich had four illegitimate children, of whom Richard was
father of Sir nathaniel Rich (not the one who died 1701, but his childless

--Richard Rich, author of "Newes from Virginia" was possibly the same
Richard Rich, illegitmate son of first baron rich and father of Sir
Nathaniel Rich. he was a soldier and adventurer, who sailed in 1609 from
Plymouth england for Virginia, in the "Sea Venture", a ship soon
shipwrecked in Bermuda. Along with several future governors of Va, one of
the other shipwrecked passengers was John Rolfe, married to another wife
than Pocahontas at that time. Rich and the others eventually got to Va,
whence Rich returned to england in 1610 and wrote his "Newes of Va", which
some think inspired Shakespeare to write "The Tempest". he announced in
the book that he intended to return to Va, but his later life is obscure.
{was this the Va. ancestor of Timothy and the North Carolina Riches?]

That's all I have for now. We think of the english nobles as being
powerful and wealthy, as they later were in the 19th and early 20th
century, but in the 1500s and 1600s, most of them had very precarious
finances, especially younger sons and daughters who sometimes only got a
bare education and a commision in the army or navy, if that. It was not
unusual for even a duke to give his daughter to a wealthy merchant to
avoid a dowry. Many of these younger sons came to America. And the
situation was even worse for noble bastards. Some of the great Elizabethan
families that apparently sent out younger sons were the Blounts, the
Riches, the Culpepers, the Drakes, the Gilberts--all names found in Va and

Baker, Alpha Lee (I26703)

Benjamin Woodson, Sr., was the son of John3 and Mary (Tucker) Woodson. He was born ca 1693 in Henrico County, Virginia and died in 1778 in Fluvanna County, Virginia, aged about 85 years.

Benjamin Woodson, Sr. married, ca 1720, in Henrico County, VA. Francis Napier, daughter of Capt. Robert2 Napier and his wife Mary Perrin. Frances Napier was born 5, February 1694/95, in New Kent County, Virginia, and was last known to be living on 25 October 1777 in Fluvanna County, Virginia at the age of 82 years.

The Woodson’s and the Napiers were united for the first time in 1720 when both families dwelt in Henrico County, Virginia. It would have been impossible for Frances Napier not to know about the Woodson family, and conversely, we find it hard to imagine that Benjamin Woodson was not aware of Miss Napier. Their prominence in the affairs of the colony and the plantations indicates they may have known each other from some years and had a lengthy courtship. As facts on Capt. Robert2 Napier reveal, he had dealings at the courthouse at Varina, the old County Seat for Henrico County, as early as the 1690s before his own family was produced.

Benjamin and Frances was the first marriage between the two families, but it was not the last. Two of their own grandchildren, Elizabeth and Tabitha Woodson were married to two more of the Napier's a couple of generations later.

While Woodson was a lifelong inhabitant of Henrico, until it was subdivided and the plantation fell into Goochland County, Frances Napier was raised in several counties. It is probably correct to say she was born in New Kent, raised in King and Queen, King William and Henrico, and lived her married life in Goochland, Ablemarle and Fluvanna Counties, yet not to have moved from the place of her birth very far. Certainly, in the years from her marriage until her death in is probable that she never moved at all, living on the same land all the rest of here life.

The Woodson family first appears in the records if Goochland County, Virginia as far as our examination of records goes, in a deed of gift as follows:

To All people ... I, Adam Buttrey of Goochland County, Virginia, in consideration of the affection I beare unto my Godson Bouth Woodson, son of Benjamin & ffrances Woodson of the same County, ... for ą10. paid by his ffather Benjamin Woodson ... 120 acres ... Dated 8 June 1734. Signed Adam "A" Buttrey his mark. Witnesses: Rene Napier, Patrick Napier and ffra: Woodson. This was proved at Court January 21, 1734/5 by the oaths of the witnesses before Henry Wood, clerk of the court.

The land was in trust for Booth Woodson since he was a minor at the time this instrument was written.

The next mention of this couple is in a scandalous case set before the County Court of Goochland in February Term, 1739. Patrick3 Napier and Rene3 Napier, with Frances, wife of Benjamin Woodson, all of Goochland, were charged with the kidnapping of Martha Claiborne, an orphan minor of Thomas Claiborne. She was, at the time of the alleged abduction, living with her sister and brother-in-law, Joseph and Frances (Claiborne) Thompson. Frances Woodson was found not guilty. Of course, the two Napier's involved where her brothers. No animosity seems to have resulted. A couple of years later, Martha Claiborne married to Patrick3 Napier, one of her accused abductors.

The Woodson’s lived long and saw many grandchildren. In his will, Benjamin, Sr. gave property to sons Benjamin, Jr., John, Rene and Patrick, and daughters Mary Perrin Fitzpatrick and Frances Anderson. He also remembered several grandchildren, including Elizabeth Booth Woodson, Benjamin and Joseph Fitzpatrick, and George and Benjamin Anderson. This will is dated 25, November 1777 and proved 3, September 1778 at Fluvanna Courthouse. He appointed his wife Frances Executrix and sons Benjamin, Rene and Patrick as Executors. He must have considered her able to carry out that work, and healthy enough for her age. However, she did not participate in the execution of the will after all and may have been ill by that time. Frances Napier Woodson left no will and no administration was taken out.

Children of Benjamin and Frances (Napier) Woodson:

1. Booth Woodson, born ca 1721, Henrico County, VA. died 1757, Goochland Co.; married Tabitha Cocke sister to Rebecca, wife of Benjamin 5 Woodson, Jr. No issue. Tabitha Cocke is said to have married second to John Winston, and had at least one child, Sarah Winston, Born 14, May 1761.

2. Benjamin5 Woodson, Jr. born ca 1725-30, Henrico Co., VA. and died 1808, Fluvanna County, VA. Married (1) Rebecca Cocke; married (2) Frances "Franky" Jordan.

3. Mary Perrin Woodson, born 1720s, still living in December 1786, married ca 1735-40, Joseph Fitzpatrick, son of William Fitzpatrick who is said to have come from Ireland about 1710. See Fitzpatrick Family for continuation of my husbands line.

4. Rene Woodson, born 1730s, Goochland County, VA. died 1817/18, Fluvanna Co., VA., married (1) 1758 Mary Thompson (she died shortly in or after childbirth 1759); married (2) 2, February 1775, St. James Northam Church, Martha Johnson, of Louisa Co., VA; (She survived him.) He was Commissioner of the Provision Law, Fluvanna, 1780-82.

5. Frances Woodson, born 1730s, Goochland Co., VA. living in 1778; married about 1752, George Anderson, born 1733, alive in 1800, Fluvanna Co., VA.

6. John Woodson, born 1740s, Goochland Co., VA. or Ablemarle, living 1800, Fluvanna Co., VA., married 20 March 1760, St. James Northan Church, Goochland Co., VA., Mary Mims.

7. Patrick Woodson, born 1740s, Goochland or Ablemarle, Co., VA., dead by 30, March 1722 when his estate Inventory was filed in Fluvanna Court. Married Nancy Cloof, she living 24 November 1823. His inventory was totaled at $10,788.50, including 47 slaves. Patrick Woodson, Sr., and Jr. are mentioned, and one Rene Woodson was paid for giving out whiskey at the sale.

CATHARINE "KATIE" CATHRIN1 Raper was born January 18, 1824. In 1850, 1851 and 1860 the family is reported to have been living in North Carolina, and appears consistently on Eastern Cherokee records through 1869. Some time thereafter the Johnson family came to Oklahoma. By about 1910, Catherine Raper Johnson was a Cherokee citizen of Goingsnake District, and married to ISAAC W. JOHNSON (who was stated to be "not a Cherokee Citizen"). They had children:
1. CICERO J. JOHNSON- This was the eldest child of Katie and Isaac Johnson. Born about 1841-1845 in North Carolina. His daughter, Viana Elizabeth (b. November 8, 1867 in North Carolina) married Thomas Jefferson Carlile (b. December 6, 1863 at Fort Townsend in the Choctaw Nation of Indian Territory).2 Thomas Jefferson Carlile died in 1915, and Viana lived until February 24, 1935. There is more information about this family in the Carter Chapter. When Cicero died in 1928, Sam Christie's dad rode a horse to go tell Cicero's son, Henry. He was buried at Park Hill Cemetery. There is a nice photograph of Cicero Johnson in Pioneers of Park Hill, by Norine Allen Torkleson, photo courtesy of Lewdema Johnson (Haney). Shirley Christie relates that in his photos, he stood about 5'8" and had a mustache.

2. ROMULUS MILO JOHNSON- Born November 1845 in North Carolina. He died November 28, 1884.

3. LAURA A. JOHNSON- Born March 28, 1848, in North Carolina. Married to James B. Newton. Of her children, one was Nancy Catherine Newton, detailed in the Newton Section.

4. WILLIAM M. JOHNSON- Born about 1850. Died prior to 19073. Married to a woman named LUCY.4

5. DUDLEY L. (Alonzo) JOHNSON-5 Born 4/15/1852 in Cherokee North Carolina. Died February 13, 1885.

6. ISAAC ISADORE JOHNSON- Born January 11, 1856 at Cherokee, North Carolina. He died November 8, 1887 and is buried with the family at Park Hill Cemetery. His spouse was LUCY C.

7. JACOB JESSE JOHNSON- Born January 11, 1856. Died 11/8/1887. He was probably named for his grandfathers (Jesse Raper and Jesse Johnson), and called "Jess." He married PRISCILLA "MARY" LEDFORD 3/1/1892. He died about 1900, but his resting place is unknown. One of his children was Myrtle Johnson Eagle, who lived until 1995. Thomas and LaFay Webb add that Myrtle stated she was born in Adair County. Another child, son Oscar Johnson, married Jessie Foust on December 26, 1911, recorded in the Cherokee County Book of Marriages, Book 2, Page 246.

The Ward Families History Records states there was another child, Monroe Johnson. This was a son6 of Jacob and Ailcy Johnson, and a brother to Isaac. Ward omits William E. Johnson. The 1860 Census shows this boy's name to have been William M., and we can hazard a guess that it was probably William Monroe Johnson, named after his uncle (Isaac's brother), the David Monroe Johnson last above mentioned.
The following is a recorded history of the Isaac and Catherine Johnson family from the History of Adair County, an article by Dian Crumrine Schwanz:

ISAAC W. JOHNSON was born in 1816 or 1818, in Burke County, North Carolina. He was the eldest child of JACOB JOHNSON (b. circa 1789 or 1790 of Rockingham, Virginia and later of Cherokee County, North Carolina) and ALSA or AILCY HENCEY7 (born 1794 or 1795) of North Carolina. In approximately 1840, he married a quarter-blood Cherokee woman whose name was CATHERINE RAPER. Catherine was the daughter of JESSE RAPER and MARY MCDANIEL, a half-blood Cherokee, both of North Carolina. Isaac and Catherine had seven children:


Cherokee County, North Carolina was the home of Isaac and Catherine until April of 1872, when they left for the Cherokee Nation West (an area now known as west Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma). They arrived in May of 1872, with several of their children and grandchildren and settled in Goingsnake District.

Isaac and Catherine owned several pieces of land in North Carolina, some of which were sold before they left the state. On May 1, 1873, one year after their move west, they signed deeds in Washington County, Arkansas selling land in North Carolina. Their last land sale recorded in North Carolina was February 21, 1876, nearly three years later.

Information indicates that Isaac and Catherine expected the cost of the move to the Cherokee Nation to be reimbursed. A record of testimony given before a Union Agency on August 16, 1875, shows Isaac had been denied this reimbursement. Even Catherine's Indian ancestry had been questioned as another record shows that she and her seven children were "Readmitted Unconditionally" to citizenship on November 16, 1876.

The census of 1880, show Isaac and Catherine living in Goingsnake District8, Indian Territory. It has Isaac listed as an adopted white. Catherine and the three children still at home were listed as Indians. They were living on a farm with 175 acres enclosed. The main crop that year was corn. They had 45 hogs and 18 cows.

Isaac and Catherine made Goingsnake their home for many years until Isaac's death in 1894. Catherine died in 1898, and is buried in the Park Hill Cemetery in Cherokee County.

Dian Crumrine Schwanz has a picture of Catherine Raper Johnson's grave. She relates that Isaac Johnson is buried in the Stilwell City Cemetery. Most of this family is buried at Park Hill.
The foregoing article mentions Catherine Johnson having her citizenship challenged. The same event is described in The Intruders: The Illegal Residents of the Cherokee Nation 1866-1907 by Nancy Hope Sober. She writes:
In November 1871 and May 1872 several families, claiming to be North Carolina Cherokees, presented their evidence of Cherokee blood to the Chief Justice of the Cherokee Supreme Court in accordance with the 1869 census law. Later these persons were labeled as "Doubtful citizens" and were requiredto appear before the National Council and prove their claims. ELIZA BROWN9 and CATHERINE JOHNSON and their families were among these claimants. In December 1873 their cases still had not been heard andthey wrote to Secretary Delano stating thatthe Joint Committee appointed by the National Council, and chaired by Samuel Houston Benge, to handle citizenship applications had withheld their petitions until the National Council had adjourned. In addition, Benge had refused to return their papers. They claimed that some of their relatives hadbeen accepted as citizens. They wanted their evidence returned because "during the past year a large number of papers submitted . . . by otherapplicants for citizenship had been lost or destroyed."

Throughout 1874 and 1875 the Cherokees appealed to Ingalls to remove those persons whom they designated as intruders. The agent routinely submitted the lists to the department in Washington. In November 1874 the department had instructed Ingalls to notify the illegal residents to leave the Nation within 30 days or face civil or military action. Notices of this policy, which was to become effective 25 January 1875, were published in the National newspaper. On 4 December, 1874, theNational Council passed an act that, in later years, was referred to as the "Sweepstakes Act" by an organization of citizen claimants. The law listed, by name and district, 65 persons whose claims had been rejected by the National Council. Thirty-six of these persons had families living in the Nation.

On 14 December 1874, G.W. Lloyd, W.H. Jones, Anna Johnson, Eliza J. Nichoelmas, Frank Nichoelmas, Emiline Goodwin, ELIZA BROWN, CATHERINE JOHNSON, T.J. Ogle, Malachi Watts, Martha A. Owens and William Matoy submitted a petition to Ingalls. All of these parties claimed that theyhadnot had a properhearing before Cherokee Authorities; some allegedthat their papers had been lost, and in other cases, envelopes containing theirproofs had never been opened. Some claimed that they had been denied citizenship even though they had won approval in one house of the Cherokee legislature....Ingalls discovered that persons who had signed the petitions were amongst those receiving notices to leave the Nation. He wrote Commissioner Edward P. Smith that the North Carolina Cherokees were"among the most industrious, orderly and religious in the Nation" and that they should be permitted to remain.Among the black petitioners were freedmenwho had returned to the Nation more than six months after the Treaty of 1866 had been signed. Ingalls asked the department for specific instructions.
At the end of January, Smith advised Ingalls that if the intruders failed to leave upon receiving notice, he was to make a report showing those who had no right to remain, and the black and North Carolina Cherokees who might have legitimate claims to citizenship. Smith warned the agent not to allow any in the latter two groups to be removed until the department decided their cases. Although the Petitioners undoubtedly received the notices, no one heeded them. Ingalls issued prima facie certificates, or "protection papers," to those claimants whose cases were being considered by the department. The holdersof these certificates remained in possession of their improvements and appealed to the agent or the department to halt the threatened sale of their property and their impending removal.

In a letter marked "Private" and dated 23 August, 1875, Ingalls submitted affidavits and papers supporting some of the citizenship claims that he had investigated. He did not forward the special report requested by the department and gave as his excuse for failing to do so the burden of other duties that required so much of his time. Moreover, he wrote, to gather evidence from the other claimants would have required him to travel long distances. Ingalls reported that "hundreds of deserving North Carolina Cherokees, other Cherokees by blood, intermarried whites and freedmen" had been denied the right to vote and share in the recent "per capita- Breadstuffs payment."
He also advised that the National Council had passed an "Intruder Act" excluding claimants whose cases were still pending and that there were instances of intruder improvements being sold by Cherokee authorities. He alleged that some noncitizens received a part of the per capita funds in return for their votes in the last election. In response to Ingalls' allegations, the department sent Inspector E.C. Watkins to the Indian Territory late in 1875.

Watkins' investigation had no effect onthe intruders or the department. The tribe's requests for removal of intruders were ignored. Finally, despairing ofany success through the department, Chief Thompson, on 5 October, 1876, set anappealdirectly to President U.S. Grantrequesting that "severalhundredintruders" be removed from Cooweescoowee District. A petition signed by 37 Cherokee Citizens of that district stated that "white persons who claim to be Cherokees," and who might be entitled to citizenship if they presented their claims to the proper authorities, freedmen who returnedtoo late, and blacks who had never lived in the Nation, had penetrated several miles into the Nation where they were "erecting residences, opening farms," cutting timber and mining coal. Thompson pointed out to the president that such intruders were beyond the jurisdiction of the tribal courts and therefore the crimes and wrongs committed by these "bad men" could not be punished by the Cherokees.

When Thompson delivered his annualmessage to the National Council in November, he described another aspect of the intrusion problem. There were, he said, white families entering the Nation with their livestock, claiming that they had permits from tribal authorities. However, investigation showed that nine-tenths of them had no permits at all. Another troublesome group, Thompson stated, were those persons claiming a right by blood but who failed to substantiate their claims yet continued to reside in the Nation, making "no effort to obtain their rights according to law." He called on the council to either admit or reject the freedmen who had not returned within the time allowed. He recommended some definite action be taken so that a law could be passed that would apply to all intruders.

During this period while tribal officials contended with the federal government, the National Council was, by specialacts, regularly readmitting North Carolina Cherokees and other former citizens who proved their eligibility. Watkins' investigation confirmed most of the complaints made by ELIZA BROWN and CATHERINE JOHNSON in late 1874, and on 16 November, 1876 these families, 15 persons in all, were readmitted to all the rights and privileges of citizenship.
Catherine Johnson and Eliza Brown succeeded in transferring their tribal membership from the Eastern Cherokees to the Cherokee Nation West. The larger problem of removing and policing white intruders ultimately resulted in the establishment of a Federal Court at Fort Smith underthe judicialwatch of Judge Isaac Parker, known as "Hanging Judge Parker" for his strict sentencing.
Catharine "Katie" Johnson was enrolled in the 1851 Siler Roll (as #1284),10 and in the 1852 Albert Chapman Roll (as #1322) with her then-living children:
1. CICERO JOHNSON, Siler Roll #1285, Chapman Roll #1323.11 Swetland Roll 1599. He was age 63 at the time of the Cherokee Claims Rolls (circa 1906).
2. MILO JOHNSON, Siler Roll #1286, Chapman Roll #1324.
3. LAURA JOHNSON, Siler Roll #1287, Chapman Roll #132512, Cherokee Citizenship Roll Number 15182, age 52 at the time of the Citizenship Roll and age 58 at the time of the Cherokee Claims Rolls (circa 1906). Catherine Raper Johnson was age 23 when Laura was born. She13 received Allotment Deed #8783 from the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, consisting of fifty acres on May 29, 1906. This was the SW/4 of SE/4 and NW/4 of SE/4 of SE/4 of §28, Township 16 North, Range 22 East. (50 acres). She also received the S/2 of NW/4 of SE/4 of §28, T16N, R22E, 20 acres. Her Roll Number was stated to be 15782 on the first parcel and 15182 on the second parcel. According to the Roll, she was 1/8 Cherokee.
4. WILLIAM JOHNSON, Siler Roll #1288, Chapman Roll #132614
By 1872, in Goingsnake District the children remaining at home with Isaac and Catherine Johnson were: William, Dudley, Joseph(?), Milo, Isadore and Cicero.
Both of these parents, Catherine "Katie" Johnson (died 6/27/1898) and Isaac Johnson were deceased prior to the time Laura Newton was age 52.
By about 1906-1910, Laura Newton was going by this, her married name, and she had a brother who accompanied her to make her claim on the Cherokee Claims Roll: Cicero Johnson, Miller Applicant Number 1379 of Tahlequah, Oklahoma. His claim was admitted. Cicero Johnson (Miller Roll # 15374, Dawes Roll #13746, Cherokee Census Card 5728, born circa 1845), and his and Laura's mother, and brothers and sisters were enrolled by Chapman, Numbers 1322 to 1326 inclusive. Cicero presented himself to enroll his son, Henry Johnson of Tahlequah Oklahoma who was at that time age 18.15 (Henry Johnson had been omitted through clerical error, having been confused with another Henry Johnson.) The following entry substantiates that Cicero Johnson also enrolled his a daughter, Belle:
ROLL P81 #15374 FCT COMM #13746 - Cicero Johnson- 63
15375 13752 - Belle (dau)- 13
SUPP.ROLL #30641 FCT COMM #13751 - Henry Johnson 18
By Cicero Johnson, father & Gdn.
CICERO JOHNSON16, was the eldest child of Isaac and Catherine. Cicero and his wife, DOVIE BROWN JOHNSON, moved from Goingsnake District to Tahlequah District after the Census of 1880. Dovie was an Adopted White on the Cherokee Citizenship Roll. She is buried in Park Hill Cemetery with Cicero, and her marker states that she was born in 1841 and died in 1928. Her actual birth date may have been in the year 1851, as recited in Pioneers of Park Hill, by Norine Allen Torkleson. A photograph of "Douie" is found in that book also. A 1920 Census shows her age as 67. She was born in Tennessee and her mother was born in North Carolina. Her father was born in Georgia.17 The 1910 Census recites that Cicero's father was born in Virginia. Ten years later the 1920 Census also recites that Cicero's father was born in Virginia. This is an interesting fact, since North Carolina records show Isaac Johnson there along with Isaac's parents at least in midlife. 1. Their oldest daughter, VIANA ELIZABETH JOHNSON18, born November 8, 1867 in North Carolina, married THOMAS JEFFERSON CARLILE (born 12/6/1863 in the Choctaw Nation) in about 1884. They had the following children:
1. ELLA CARLILE, born 1885 and died in 1887.
6. LEVI CARLILE, born 9/14 1896 at Wauhillau and married to ELIZABETH VICTORIA WOOD, born 2/24/1896 at Tahlequah, grandparents of Dian Crumrine Schwanz.
Viana Elizabeth Carlile died February 24, 1935 and she was preceded in death by Thomas Jefferson Carlile in 1915. He is buried at Park Hill Cemetery.
2. BELLE L. JOHNSON Johnson was born in 1868 and died in 1897.
3. Daughter ELLEN JOHNSON was born to Cicero and Dovie on November 28, 1869 in North Carolina. She married J.W. LINSCOTT, who was about the same age. Among their children was ODELLER LINSCOTT, born 10/27/1894.
4. WILLIAM ISAAC JOHNSON was the son of Cicero and Dovie, born May 1, 1871 or 1872 in the Cherokee Nation East (North Carolina). About 1904 he married CYNTHIA SANDERS, born circa 1878. Their son ELLIS JOHNSON was born about 1893. William died November 1932 and was buried on the 20th at Park Hill Cemetery.19
5. MAGGIE FRANCIS JOHNSON was born about 1874.
6. SARAH JOHNSON was born at Park Hill, February 5, 1877. She married JAMES BLACKEY, who had been born about 1867. She died March 18, 1899 and was buried at Park Hill Cemetery.
7. CINTHIA JOHNSON was born January 1870 or 1879 in North Carolina.
8. MARTHA JOHNSON was born about 1879.
9. Cicero and Dovie had son ALLEN ISADORE "AL" JOHNSON on June 24, 1879 in Indian Territory. He married MATTIE ANN ROBERTS (b. 5/18/?) about 1882, or born in Oklahoma March or May 18, 1892. In 1920 they were enumerated in Park Hill Township of Cherokee County, Oklahoma where they resided with children Goldie, Mable and Lewdema. Much of the following information is from the memory and sources of Shirley Christie-- Al & Mattie's children were:
1. FANNIE JOHNSON, who died at birth on September the 7th, 1907. This infant is buried at Park Hill Cemetery.
2. GOLDIE JOHNSON, born December 23, 1909 at Park Hill, in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. She died May 7, 1922.
3. LEWDEMA JOHNSON, living with the family at age 8 in 1920. Her date of birth was February 12, 1912 at Park Hill. Shirley Johnson Christie relates that Lewdema didn't have a name till she was a girl, and she chose her own name. She married LUTHER THOMAS EASTHAM and had children. She also married HANEY and ROSE.20
4. JEWEL MABLE JOHNSON, born 9/15/1919 at Park Hill, Oklahoma, married LOYD FOUNTAIN and they had children.21
5. LEVI JOHNSON, born October 4, 1922 in Cherokee County. He married BERNIECE (spelling questionable) JONES. He died at Park Hill and is buried in the Cemetery there. They had children.22
6. JOHNIE B. JOHNSON, born April 28, 1925 at Park Hill, Cherokee County, Oklahoma. He married MAYJEAN BLACKMORE. They have no children.
7. HELEN JOHNSON, born December 4 or 5, 1927 at Park Hill, Oklahoma. She married PRESTON PARKS. They had children.23
Photographs of this family can be found in Norine Allen Torkleson's Pioneers of Park Hill.
10. MILLIE or MOLLIE E. JOHNSON was born 10/30/1881 at Indian Territory. She married MARTIN DEWITT WALLACE. Betty Wallis Ladd relates, "The family story goes that Uncle DeWitt was forced into a "shotgun" wedding. When he and his bride were put on a train for their honeymoon, he got off on the other side and went to California. His bride's father said if Uncle DeWitt ever came back to Oklahoma he would kill him. He married in California and did not come back to Oklahoma until shortly before ... the early 1950's." This story has a happy ending for the bride, who thereafter married STANLEY (SAMUEL?) HENSLEY born 3/10/1877.
11. Dovie & Cicero's son THOMAS M. JOHNSON was born November 17, 1883 at Park Hill and married a woman whose name was GENEVA. He died July 23, 1910.
12. Dovie & Cicero's son ROMULUS ALONSO JOHNSON was born west on May 26, 1886. EFFIE SHELTON became his bride on January 23, 1909. Their marriage is recorded in the first Cherokee County Book of Marriages at page 231. He died 8/8/1944 at Park Hill and is buried in Park Hill Cemetery.
13. VIRGIL HENRY JOHNSON was the "Henry" above who accompanied his father to enroll with the Dawes Commission. He was born November 18, 1888 or 1889. He married PEARLIE F. HINTON or PEARL E. HINTON, (b. 7/4/1893). At age 73 he died November 1, 1962.
14. ROSETTA BELLE JOHNSON was the youngest child of Dovie and Cicero, having been born on September 10, 1893. She married HOUSTON HENSLEY, who was born about 1893.
Milo Johnson (born 1845) (enrolled in 1869 on the Swetland Roll as ROMEELUS M. JOHNSON, #1594).24 It was in June of 1869 that he married NANCY ADELINE PAYNE (born July 1849 at Cherokee County, North Carolina), the daughter of NEHEMIAH PAYNE and FRANCES PAYNE. Adeline was an adopted white Cherokee citizen. They had the following children:
1. EMMA JESSIE JOHNSON- This oldest child was born in Burke County, North
Carolina (11/29/1869). Thomas and LaFay Webb share that she married WILLIAM LEONARD "TUXIE" MILLER in 1886 in Oklahoma, and she lived until August 17, 1953. As with many of the other Johnsons, her final resting place is Green Hill Cemetery in Muskogee.25

2. JULIA JOHNSON- Her married name was JULIA HOLLAND. She had at least one
child- ISAAC HOLLAND who lived in Bartlesville, Oklahoma around 1906-1910. He was age 14 at that time, and Noah S. Holland was his guardian. His Cherokee Roll Claim was admitted, but crossed out in the book for some unexplained reason. The following entry numbers followed:
** ROLL P77 #14419 FCT COMM #2346 - Isaac Holland - 14 **
** By Noah S. Holland, Gdn.**

Julia was born in Cherokee County North Carolina and she died in 1894.

3. FRANCES MAGNOLIA "MAGGIE" JOHNSON- Circa 1873-74 when she was born, the family was living at Rabbit Trap, Goingsnake District. She was married to WILLIAM A. QUALLS. She was buried in 1940 at William Timb. Cemetery in Craig County, Oklahoma.

4. DUDLEY JOHNSON- Born 1875 at Rabbit Trap in Goingsnake District, which is today Adair County.26

5. LAURA C. JOHNSON- born 1877 at Rabbit Trap in Goingsnake District. She married James Adolphus HOLLAND.

6. MARTHA "TRIXIE" JOHNSON- who married a NORRIS and a BURCATT. She was born in 1879 and died in 1905.

7. MIAH JOHNSON- born 1881 at Rabbit Trap in Goingsnake District. Miah Johnson, married ALLIE RAGSDALE on May 8, 1908, and this marriage is recorded in the Cherokee County Book of Marriages, Book 1, page 87.

8. ISAAC JOHNSON- Emmet Starr's History of the Cherokee Indians contains this entry:

Mr. Johnson is an efficient state enforcement officer. Thanks to Thomas and LaFay (Johnson) Webb for providing the following information on the Isaac Johnson Family, and for sharing Johnson family information found throughout this Chapter. ISAAC JOHNSON, the son of MILO ROMULOUS MILES JOHNSON and NANCY ADELINE PAYNE, was born March 18, 1883 at Rabbit Trap in Goingsnake District, Indian Territory, which is present-day Adair County. He married SETHIE LEE TULLY on April 1913 at Muskogee, Oklahoma. His bride was the daughter of MORRIS HOBBS TULLY and LOUISE (LEW) MOUNCE.

According to the Cherokee Claims Rolls of 1906-1910, one Isaac Johnson of Tahlequah, Oklahoma was admitted to participate in the per capita payments to Cherokee Citizens. This Isaac Johnson had brothers named Dudley Johnson and Miah (or MYER) Johnson. According to the entry:
2884. DUDLEY JOHNSON Tahlequah, Oklahoma Admitted. Claimant's father, paternal grandmother, uncles and aunt enrolled by Chapman in 1851, C. 1322 to 26 inclusive. ROLL P81 #15393 FCT COMM #16627 - Dudley Johnson - 31.

2887. MIAH JOHNSON (or MYER) Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Admitted. Brother of #2884. ROLL P82 #15510 FCT COMM #5603 - Miah (or Myer) Johnson - 25.

Dudley Johnson enrollment information: Dawes Roll Number 16627, Census 6966, Miller Roll 15393, Miller Application 2884, age 26, 1/32 Cherokee, of Tahlequah Oklahoma.
Myer Johnson enrollment information: Dawes Roll Number 5603, Census 2164, Miller Roll 15510, Miller Application 2887, age 20, 1/8 Cherokee, of Tahlequah Oklahoma.
Isaac Johnson enrollment information: Dawes Roll Number 5604, Census 2164, Miller Roll 15421, age 19, 1/8 Cherokee, of Tahlequah Oklahoma.

Isaac Johnson died on January 11, 1964 in Muskogee, Oklahoma and was buried at Greenhill Cemetery in Muskogee on January 13, 1964. Sethie lived until April 15, 1981 and was a resident of Muskogee at the time of her death. She was buried on April 17, 1981 at Greenhill Cemetery.
Romulous Milo died November 28, 1884. His resting place remained a mystery to this writer until November, 1995 when Thomas J. and LaFay Webb wrote:
"We drove over to Stilwell yesterday and went to the Old Section of the Cemetery and found Isaac W. Johnson's grave. We were hoping to maybe locate LaFay's Grandfather, [Romulous] Milo Johnson's grave. Well we did. Isaac's monument is beautiful but hard to read at first until we did some cleaning. Born August 30, 1816 Died February 19, 1894. Next to Isaac on his left is buried D.A. Johnson, or Dudley Alonzo born April 15, 1852. We don't think this is 1855 as previously stated. It says 32 years old. The death February 13, 1885 doesn't add up to 32. On Dudley's left is R. M. Johnson, born November 1845, died November 28, 1884. After cleaning this monument, LaFay said "This is him, my grandfather, Romulous Milo Johnson." Now in front of Isaac Johnson, a William M. Johnson is buried. The M. stand for Monroe, Born August 31 1850 and died June 17, 1894-- just four months after his Father Isaac died. Some other Johnsons are also here but it was so cold we thought we would come back later."

By 1896, the Indian By Blood Census for Tahlequah, Oklahoma shows that by then, Adeline Johnson was remarried to JAMES GOURD and these of the Johnson children were living with them: Dudley, Martha, Myrea or Miah, and Isaac (The father of LaFay). On July 26, 1940 Adeline died. She was buried two days later, in the Miller Cemetery in Tahlequah.

WILLIAM E. JOHNSON,29 son of Isaac and Catherine Johnson, and William's wife LUCY had the following children, and there may have been others:
1. THOMAS E. JOHNSON, who at age 22 lived at Pryor Creek, Oklahoma. His Dawes Roll Number was 15572, Miller Roll #15557, Census #6502, Miller Application 30834, 3/4 Cherokee. It is believed that this is the same person as the Thomas Johnson buried in Park Hill Cemetery, and if so, he was born in 1883 and died in 1910. According to Our People and Where They Rest, there is a Thomas L. Johnson in the same cemetery, born 1860 and died 1889.

We know that Laura Johnson was back East in 1851 because she is recorded to have received a per capita payment in that year. By 1869 after the Civil War, the Johnson family members remaining back East did not include Laura. Johnsons remaining back East by 1869: Cartherine, and children Romeelus M., William Monroe, Dudley A. Johnson, Isaac J. Johnson, Jessie J. Johnson, Cicero, and Cicero's daughter Viviean. Laura Newton and husband J.B. Newton show up in the 1870 Census in North Carolina, enumerated with the Jacob Johnson family. Jacob was age 80. Laura must have come out West after 1870 with James B. Newton.
In 1850 we find the Isaac W. Johnson and Catherine Johnson family living in dwelling 46 in Cherokee County, North Carolina. Isaac was age 34 at the time, and his wife Catherine was age 27. Little Laura was just age three at that time. The Johnsons were farming 25 acres of land. They owned 12 head of livestock, 12 sheep, and 30 hogs. They reported to the census enumerator that they grew 190 bushels of rye oats, 352 bushels of corn, 75 bushels of potatoes, and 50 pounds of butter. They also produced 8 units of wool.
In Dwelling 582, lived his parents: JACOB JOHNSON and AILSY JOHNSON. Jacob was age 60, thus we can estimate his date of birth at circa 179031 and Ailsy was age 55, making her date of birth about 1795. Also in the household, presumably the siblings of Isaac W. Johnson, were:
JOB C. JOHNSON, age 20
PATRICK L. JOHNSON, also age 14
and these probably-kin:
Ten years later at the 1860 census time, Jacob is now age 71, Alsa is still living and householders (and their ages) include: Jacob (29), Philip (24), Patrick (24), and Rapers: Alsa now age 18, Vianna (17), Josephine (13), and July Ann (11).32 In addition to a houseful of children, Jacob Johnson owned 8 slaves.
During this decade between 1850 and 1860, Elmina, Roxanna and Job C. had died or, more likely, moved to homes of their own. By now the Jacob Johnson family had acquired a substantial farm empire of 100 acres with 32 head of stock and 50 hogs. Some of the products produced there were noted in the Census: wheat, corn, wool, potatoes, butter and molasses. Isaac and Catherine Johnson had expanded their farmstead to 65 acres. They managed 16 head of stock and 40 hogs, and produced also: corn, tobacco, wool, potatoes, butter and molasses.
Thomas J. and LaFay Webb of Muskogee, Oklahoma, found the Burke County North Carolina marriage bond for Jacob Johnson and Ailcy Hencey, dated March 5, 181533. She was born in North Carolina about 1795. JACOB was born August 5, 1791 in Rockingham County Virginia. He came West at some point between ages 80 and 86.34 He died at age 86 and was buried at Park Hill Cemetery, Cherokee County, Oklahoma.
A generation later, little VIANNA RAPER has grown up and by 1907 or so her daughter ALLIE E. FERGUSON confirms that these Raper children who were raised by the Johnsons, are indeed the children of Charles B. Raper. Interestingly, the younger ALSY A. JOHNSON is by about 1906 living in Stilwell Oklahoma, as is Allie E. Ferguson (her niece?). It is reported that Allie E. Ferguson was the wife of WALLER FERGUSON, and their son, John F. FERGUSON was Adair County Sheriff.
The children of JACOB and AILCY were:
1. ISAAC W. JOHNSON- Born 1818 in Burke County, North Carolina and married to CATHERINE RAPER about 1840. He died in Goingsnake District before Catherine came over to Cherokee County, Oklahoma, in February 1894.

2. ELMIRA JOHNSON- Born about 1826 in North Carolina. Married NEWEL TRAMMEL.

3. ROXANNA JOHNSON- Born about 1828 in North Carolina. She married JOHN B. BALLEW.

4. JACOB G. JOHNSON- Born 1831 (N.C) and married to BELLE L. ROBINS, born June 24, 1868.
It is believed that the marriage took place about 1859, and that on October 14, 1860 William E. Johnson was born of this marriage in Georgia. He died August 23, 1889 at Park Hill and was buried in the Park Hill Cemetery.

5. DAVID MONROE JOHNSON- Born 1835 in North Carolina, he married MAHALA "HALLIE" BELLEW (BALLEW?) (b. 1836).35

6. PHILLIP THEODORE JOHNSON- Born February 13, 1836 at Buncombe, Murphy County, North Carolina. He married PENELOPE ADAIR March 23, 1872 at Buncombe, Murphy County, North Carolina. This was not his only wife. He secondly married MARTHA HILTON. He died October 3, 1902 at Park Hill, in the Cherokee Nation.36 Phillip's wife, Penelope Adair, is shown on the Cherokee Old Settlers' Roll of 1851. She apparently predeceased Phillip, and was deceased when "Philip T." was age 58. By then, their daughter Nancy R. Buse was age 19 and apparently married. Their younger children were under the guardianship of Deborah Adair: Daughter Ida L. Johnson, who was 17; Theodore L. Johnson who was age 14; John B. Johnson, who was age 11, Jacob E. Johnson who was age 11, Lou Ella Johnson, who was age 8 and son Oliver W. Johnson who was age 6. All family members resided at Tahlequah when the Old Settler Payroll information was taken down.
Luther Lee Kennicutt is a descendant of the Johnson-Adair Union and he reports that Nancy Ruth Buse is sometimes seen as Nancy R. Kent, and her second husband was something like "Seigel" Kent. Dale Buse can provide more information about this.
7. PATRICK RIGDON JOHNSON- Born 1836-7 at Wake, North Carolina and married (ca. 1869) to GEORGIA TAYLOR at Hot House Township, Cherokee County, North Carolina.

Dian Crumrine Schwanz relates that Myrtle Johnson Eagle passed away in 1995. Her father was the youngest of the children of Isaac W. Johnson and Catherine Raper- Jesse Jacob Johnson. She remembered Laura Newton, and told Dian this about her family, "Alvin might have been killed. Nora lived close to Laura, Nancy married a Carter and had LOTS of children. One girl was named Quiter.37 She, Quiter, married Rob Loony." Cuter was Myrtle's age. Myrtle had memories of picking onions with Quiter at Nancy Carter's place, before Myrtle's mother died. Myrtle related that Catherine Johnson smoked a clay pipe and lived with Laura Johnson Newton.
Thomas & LaFay Webb explain about William E. Johnson, pages 2 (footnote) and 21. According to the 1870 Cherokee County North Carolina Census, Jacob Johnson is listed as eighty years old, with no wife. Jacob Jr. is age 38, and Benjamin Newton and Laura Newton are shown together. Benjamin is age 23 and Laura is 20. This is the earliest record of Laura and Benjamin Newton together, and tends to corraborate that they were married before they came to Oklahoma. The 1870 Cherokee County North Carolina Census shows William E. Johnson in the household at age seven. Thomas Webb concludes (and I agree) that William E. Johnson must have been the son of Jacob, Jr. -- grandson of Jacob & Ailsy, and nephew of Isaac & Catharine Johnson. Finding these individuals in 1870 with grandfather Jacob Johnson explains why Laura does not show up in Catherine and Isaac's household that year, and it narrows-down the range of time that these family members came West to Oklahoma.
For the longest, we looked for the Hency family, hoping to find Ailsy as a household member before her marriage, and to no avail. Finally there in the Cherokee County North Carolina Census summaries, a big clue jumped out-- A David Hennese. Alsa was 66 in 1860, when David Hennese was age 53. His wife was 62, and by then their children were out of the home. I think David Hennese was a brother to Alsa. By 1860, son John was age 31 and head of a household with young wife N.J. (age 19) and a little 3 month-old baby girl, C.F. Other children of David Hennese (there are probably older ones, too): Sarah (b. ca. 1835) Hennese and James P. Hennese (b. ca. 1837). Another spelling of these same families is Hennessa. David Hennessa farmed with five slaves.
Finally in 1999, researcher Nita Shepard solved the mystery. She relates that the father of Ailsey Hennessee is JOHN HENNESSEE, and there was another sibling to Ailsey by the name of PATRICK HENNESSEE. (She also relates that there are Raper graves adjoining the Hennessee graves in Glen Alpine, N.C. Nita Shepherd's 2nd cousin, Nick, relates that he has Johnson and Hennessee information, and knows about some Johnson graves sites along a river.) (Interesting teaser!)

1 Katie is the name shown in the 1910 Census. Cathrin is the name shown on her tombstone, in Park Hill Cemetery near Tahlequah. Her monument recites, "She lived a member of the In. E. Church for 40 years."

3 According to "Probate Records 1904-1908, Northern District Cherokee Nation" by Orpha Jewell Wever, Sponsored by Northeast Oklahoma Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 484, Vinita, Oklahoma, 74301, p. 54 record#1510 shows a probate dated February 27, 1908for, Ibelieve, William M. Johnson, a resident of Rose, Indian Territory. Roseis nowan almost extinct community north of Tahlequah between what was Gideon and what was Peggs, near Highway 82 and nearthe Mayes County line. This record shows other minors: Cicero L. Johnson, Venie Johnson, Samuel L. Johnson, Louis Johnson, David L. Johnson, John A. Johnson who was, it appears, a brother of the deceased, and William E. Johnson, father. W.E. Johnson, Guardian.
4 Distinguish, in the Park Hill Cemetery, is located the grave of William E. Johnson, showing his date of birth to have been 1860 and his death in 1889. See 1870 Back East at the end of this Chapter.
5 Dawes Roll 16627, Census 6966, Miller Roll 15393, Miller Application 2882, listed as 1/32 Cherokee. This blood quantum is either incorrect and should have been 1/16 as were the other siblings or was transcribed incorrectly or means that Dudley Johnson was a grandchild "adopted" by his grandparents as their child.
6 (David) Monroe Johnson was age 25 in 1860 when he and his wife, Mahala was enrolled in the Census as living in Dwelling259. Their children atthe time were Hershal (age 2) and Thomas L., an infant six months old. He farmed 30acres and had 7 head of livestock and18 hogs. Some of the livestock must have been cattle for he claims to have produced about a 100 lbs. of butter that year. He produced a little molassesand healso grew flax. Thomas J. Webb relates that this was DAVID MONROE JOHNSON who married MAHALA "HALLIE" BELLEW (BALLEW?) and had five children.
7 This is probably a phonetic adaptation of the family Hennessey.
8 Adair County, basically.
9 Catherine Raper Johnson's sister, Eliza Raper Brown.
10 She is probably enrolled in the Mullay Roll of 1848 as 1009, spelled Catharine Johnson. She is listed as the head of household #10 at page 57 of the Siler Roll, age 29 at the time, a mixed-blood, and Isaac Johnson was shown in the margin as the head of family. Cicero was age 8. Milo was age 6, Laura was age 5, and William was 1 year old. The families listed before and after these were probably neighbors: Jack and Quaitsey Downing with their six children, and Kau-to-quor-kih (his English name was Sunday Jackson) and Jinny and their two girls.
11 Cicero Johnson had at least two children:
Henry Johnson, age 18 @ time of the Cherokee Claims Rolls
Belle Johnson, age 13 @ time of the Cherokee Claims Rolls
12 Laura Johnson is listed as "Saura Johnson" in the 1851 Siler Roll. Her birth order and contiguous listings substantiate that this was a scrivner's error in the spelling of her name.

13 Laura A. Johnson was the mother of Nancy Newton, Maternal grandmother of Houston C. Carter, and Great-grandmother of Eugene Carter. She was the author's Great-great grandmother.
14 One William Monroe Johnson was enrolled on the Swetland Roll of 1869 at Roll #1595, next to Dudley Johnson (#1596). William Johnson shows up from Cookson, Oklahoma and his wife Quatie (App. 5954), who was one year older than him. Age 28/29 at admission. Quatie's father ws enrolled by Drennen, Flint District 163 in 1851 (Refers to application 1941).
15 The following entry was scripted in a roll book:
1718 Cicero age _8, Male, Husband of No. 136(7) White Roll
1719 (Actually, Allen) 17, Male
1720 Mable (actually, Mollie E.) age 15, female
1721 Thomas age 13 male
1722 Allonzo age 10 male
1723 Henry age 8 male
1724 Bell age 3 Female

16 Statistics: Dawes 13746, Census 5728, Miller 15374, Miller App 1379, of Tahlequah Oklahoma when he was 59.
The May, 1910 Census shows that Dovie's father was born in Virginia. Born May 21, 1851 in Ducktown, Tennessee, Dovie was the daughter of MELINDA W. MOSS and WILLIAM BROWN. Her mother was born January 1, 1817 to 1819 in North Carolina, according to Thomas J. Webb and LaFay Webb, and her father was born about 1812 in South Carolina. Her parents married 9/19/1835 in Macon, North Carolina.
Dovie's mother died June 24, 1903 and she is buried at Park Hill Cemetery, just south of Tahlequah on the Park Hill Road in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. Dovie's siblings were: LUCINDA BROWN (1838 or 1851), SARAH (SALLY) BROWN (1853), possibly HENDERSON BROWN (1853 Tn.), ALEXANDER BROWN (1855), MARY JANE BROWN (1857) who married EBENEZER B. NEWTON about 1869, ALLEN BROWN (ca. 1859, in Georgia), WILLIAM Jr. BROWN (1862, N.C.),
18 Note that Viana Johnson and Venie Johnson are not the same person, but in 1869 Viana was enrolled as Viviean. Our Viana Johnson who was the daughter of Cicero Johnson, was probably named after one of the daughters of Katie Raper's brother, Charles Raper (Chapman 1417), whose name was Vianna Raper (Chapman 1419) and was born in time to appear in the 1852 Roll. It gets confusing, but I believe that would make Cicero and Vianna Raper first cousins. To describe this relationship from the perspective of Laura Johnson Newton, Vianna Raper was her first cousin, and the daughter of her uncle Charles Raper. Viana Johnson was Laura's niece, and the daughter of her brother Cicero.
19 This scripted roll entry was found:
1725 William 2? Male
1726 Cyntha age 19 female
1727 Ellis age 3 Male

20 Luther and Lewdema had children who are living: GLADYS MATTIE ANN EASTHAM whose birthdate was 8/6/1936; THOMAS ALLEN EASTHAM, born June 22, 1939; SHIRLEY ANN EASTHAM, born May 10, 1942.
21 TOMMY FOUNTAIN, who is now deceased. His birthday was June 7th. He is buried at Park Hill Cemetery. And ELDON (BUDDY) FOUNTAIN.
24 He may have been known among friends as Miller.
25 Shirley Christie has a copy of the Muskogee Newspaper of Sunday, February 9, 1936 with a picture of Adeline Johnson Gourd and her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. & Mrs. W.L. Miller. It reads:

How many mothers attend their daughters' golden wedding anniversary celebration? Above are shown Mr. and Mrs. W.L. "Tuxie" Miller, 905 South D street, who were married 50 years ago last Sunday, and Mrs. Miller's mother, Mrs. Adeline Gourd, (center), who lives with them, and was a guest of honor at the party.
Both Mr. & Mrs. Miller are of prominent Cherokeefamilies. Ms. Miller is Mrs. Gourd's only child, but she has many nieces andnephews, of whom Roy Gourd, member of the Bacone college faculty, is one. The real Cherokee name is "Rattling Gourd."
Mr. Miller will be 73 years old on April 6. He was born in the Canadian district, between Webbers Falls and Warner. Mrs. Miller, who is 66, was born on November 29, 1869, and was married when 16 years old. Mrs. Gourd will be 87 in July.
With her parents, Mrs. Miller made the trip from her native state, North Carolina, in 1872, travelling overland by wagon.
"Tuxie" Miller was a deputy United States marshal under "Red" Andrews in Indian Territory days; held a deputy sheriff's commission under R. B. Ramsey, Muskogee county's first sheriff, and has held one under every sheriff since, including the present sheriff, Tom Jordan.
Their only child is Milo Miller, of Muskogee, but they also have two foster children, Mrs. Lewis L. Stowe of Drumright, and Jesse Johnson of Tahlequah.
26 The following entries of these siblings was found scripted in a reproduction of the old roll book:
#1702 Dudly age 20 Male (Dudley)
Martin, age 17 female #1702 (Martha)
Myrea (?) age 15 male #1704 (Miah)
Isaac, age 13 male #1705
Also Lizzie Johnson, age 9 and Lulu Johnson, age 7 numbers 1700 and 1701 respectively who were the children of Jennie S(crofin?). The numerical sequence of their numbers makes them a sure-fire bet for kinfolk, and anyone who knows the father, will, I hope, write and clarify.

27 Note: Jessie was not a child. Family sources appear to be more reliable on this than Starr. Thomas J. and LaFay Webb have provided information on this family, which for this edition appears in the Endnotes.
28 The following Cherokee Claims Roll entry reflects facts as of 1906-1910:
William E. Johnson (#15570), age 51, Application 5793 as some unknown time had married Lucy Johnson (#15571), age 49:
Roll P82 #15573 FCT COMM #15560- William E. Johnson - 51 (App 5793)
15574 Lucy Johnson (wife) - 49
They had the following children:
15575 William M. JOHNSON- age 19, Roll Number 15576
15576 Cicero L. JOHNSON- age 17, Roll Number 15577
15577 Venie JOHNSON- age 14, female, Roll Number 15578
15578 Samuel M. JOHNSON- age 11, Roll Number 15579
15579 Lewis JOHNSON- age 7, Roll Number 15580
15580 David L. JOHNSON- age 4, Roll Number 15581.
According to the Cherokee Claims Roll, Lucy Johnson was found eligible to participate in IIM, lived at Rose, Oklahoma (whichis between Gideon and Peggs in northern Cherokee County), and her father and paternal grandparents were enrolled at Flint #222.
29 The following was found scripted on the roll book:
1738 William E. age 41 male
1739 Lucy age 35 feamle
1740 Th___ age 17 male (Thomas)
1741 John A. age 14 male
1742 Mary age 12 female
1743 George H. age 10 Male
174_ M__ age 8 male (William)
__________ age 6 male (Cicero)
___ (Fannie?) age 4 female (Venie)

30 Possibly, this William Johnson is listed in the Cherokee Claims Rolls:
1941. WILLIAM JOHNSON, Cookson, Oklahoma
Admitted. Brother of #1328 and claims thru the same source.
ROLL P82 #15564 FCT COMM #1961 - William Johnson - 28
#15565 #2051 - Quatie (wife) - 29 (App. 5954)
And entry #5954 for Quatie Johnson of Cookson, Oklahoma states:
Admitted. Applicant's father enrolled in 1851 by Drennan, Fl. 163. [For Roll Information See App 1941, Vol. 2]. According to the Chapman Roll of 1851, #1328 was Jinnie Jackson. #1327, which was the enrollee preceding William Johnson the brother of Laura Johnson, is Sunday Jackson-- probably her husband.

31 A gravestone marker was found in the Park Hill Cemetery among other members of this family for Jacob Johnson, born 1791 and died 1877. It is possible, and in fact probable that this is where Jacob Johnson was buried. But at this time there is no proof of his move West.
32 Judy and July Ann must be the same person as Julian.
33 Bondsman- Elijah Largent; Witness- J. Erwin (the Clerk). Proximate entry, (possibly kin to Jacob) Peter Johnson marrying S.E. Largent in October, bondsman- A.E. Berry, Witness- J.B. Kincaid, Clerk.
34 Thomas J. Webb writes, "I believe Ailcy died in Cherokee County, North Carolina. Jacob then came to Indian Territory, Goingsnake District before moving to Park Hill where he died." This is also the demographic pattern for his daughter-in-law Catherine. Does anyone know where they lived at Park Hill?
35 Thomas and LaFay Webb provide this: Their children were: Herchel (b. 1858); Thomas L. (b. 2/1/1860) (d. 2/1889-buried at Park Hill Cemetery); Theadore (b. 1863); Florence (b. 1865); Lilly (b. 1868); All births took place at Hot House Township, Cherokee County, North Carolina.
36 When his name was provided by Thomas and LaFay Webb, it became obvious that he had been enumerated back East after the Removal with the Jacob Johnson family-- Patrick too. Thomas Webb relates that grandson Aaron Hayes says that of this marriage there were eight children, the seventh of which was Aaron's mother, Luella Jayne Johnson who married Thomas E. Hayes. The eldest child was Susan A. Johnson. Might the "A." stand for Ailcy? Also, Aaron Hayes explains that Patrick and Phillip were born in the same year but were not twins.
Also, the following scripted roll page entry was found:
1728 Theadore age 16 male
1729 John B. age 13 male
1730 Jacob age 13 male
1731 L(ott) E. age 10 a female (Luella)
1732 O_____ W. age 8 male (Oliver)

37 Or Cuter.
