In Reply to: Berryman Hicks by Charles Proctor of 9689

Hello, Charles. My notes say that the Rev. Berryman Hicks was the son of William Hicks and his wife Edith (last name not known). William Hicks was the son of Richard Hicks (1736-1812) and his wife Mary (last name not known). My notes are based on material written by Myra Helen Hicks Ezell and conversations with Bruce Ezell. There is a lot of material still unscanned and I will probably be able later to add more names and dates. I'm interested in documenting all the written material I have here.

The William Logue who served in the navy from Maryland during the Revolutionary War was married to a Martha, but he was not the father of William Marrs Logue. William Logue of Maryland received a Revolutionary War pension in Maryland in 1841, and his widow, Martha Logue was a resident of Baltimore Co., Maryland, when she applied for a widow's pension in 1855. (Series: M805 Roll: 534 Image: 387 File: W1441/BLWT26057-160-55)

I believe William Marrs Logue was the son of William Logue b. abt. 1752-1754, either in Pennsylvania or in Augusta Co., Virginia, d. 1789 in Botetourt Co., Virginia. William served in the Botetourt Co., Militia during the Revolutionary War. It appears that William married abt. 1775 and had his first child Elizabeth in 1775. William's wife Martha had a second marriage to John Fleming. in 1789.

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 **

8. ISAAC JOHNSON- Emmet Starr's History of the Cherokee Indians contains this entry:
Johnson, Isaac-- Isaac, son of Milo and Adeline (Payne) Johnson, was born in 1883, educated at Tahlequah. Married at Muskogee in 1913. His children are JESSIE,27 MAXINE, and WILLARD JOHNSON. 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. Sethie had been born September 18, 1893 in the Chickasaw Nation at Wanette, Oklahoma, which is present-day Pottawatomie County. Together, Isaac and Sethie had the following children:
1. MILO DUDLEY JOHNSON, born June 17 1915 at Park Hill in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. He married BETTY LOU COURTNEY on October 28, 1938 at Muskogee. He passed away February 13, 1993 at Muskogee Regional Medical Center and was buried 2/17/93 in Greenhill Cemetery in Muskogee.

7. Youngest daughter EVELYN LAFAY JOHNSON was born July 2, 1929 at Tahlequah in Cherokee County, Oklahoma. She was christened on September 28, 1947 at Calvary Baptist Church in Muskogee, OK. On June 4, 1949 she married THOMAS JAMES WEBB in Muskogee, Oklahoma.

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.

2886. ISAAC JOHNSON Tahlequah, Oklahoma Admitted. Brother of #2884. ROLL p82 #15421 FCT COMM #5604 - Isaac Johnson - 23

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.

2. JOHN A. JOHNSON, about whom there is less information. His Dawes Roll Number was 15573, Census Card 6502, he was age 21 when Thomas E. Johnson was age 22, and was 3/4 Cherokee.

3. MARY B. JOHNSON, age 19 and living at Pryor Creek Oklahoma. Her Dawes Roll Number was 15574, Miller Roll 15509 based upon Application 30833, and 3/4 Cherokee.

4. GEORGE H. JOHNSON, who lived with his parents at Rose, Oklahoma at age 17, Dawes 15575, Census 6502, Miller 15403, Miller Application 28613, 3/4 Cherokee.

5. WILLIAM M. JOHNSON, Dawes Roll 15576, Census 6502, Miller Application 3156, Miller Roll 15577, age 14, and 3/4 Cherokee, living at Rose, Oklahoma.30

6. CICERO L. JOHNSON, 3/4 Cherokee, age 12 and living at Rose, Oklahoma, Dawes Roll 15577, Census 6502, Miller Application 15403, and Miller Application 3156.

7. VENIE JOHNSON, a ten year-old girl, 3/4 Cherokee, living with her parents at Rose, Oklahoma. Her enrollment information: Miller Application 3156, Miller Roll #15577, Dawes Roll number 15578, Census Number 6502.

8. SAMUEL M. JOHNSON, age 7. His census was taken on the same record as these other family members, Miller Application 3156 as were the remaining younger siblings, Miller Roll 15578 and Dawes 15579. 3/4 Cherokee.

9. LEWIS JOHNSON, age 3. Dawes Roll 15580, Miller Roll 15579, of Rose, Oklahoma.

10. DAVID L. JOHNSON, age 1, Miller Roll 15580 and Dawes Roll 15581.
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.

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.

The Sanders Family 1

Norma Karter Sunday, January 25, 1998 
Sanders, Francis (I25302)
622 The Woodson Family

On May 23, 1609, the London Company was granted a new charter which gave them all the land two hundred miles north and south of Point Comfort and extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans, the distance being entirely unknown to the King or any of the Company.

During the year 1609, the London Company fitted out nine ships with five hundred emigrants and a great quantity of supplies of all kinds needed by the Colonists in Jamestown, Virginia. Within the next year a great many of these people died, so that at the close of 1610 there were less than one hundred white persons alive at Jamestown.

The council at London had appointed Lord De la War, governor of South Virginia, and he arrived at Jamestown in the summer of 1610 with a considerable number of emigrants and a large cargo of supplies. He immediately assumed charge of colonial affairs. The charter was amended from time to time and new governors frequently appointed, as the terms of service were usually of short duration, owing to resignation, death or other causes of removal.

Emigrants were constantly being sent over from England to Virginia until the white population increased to about one thousand in 1617. The office of governor had changed hands often, sometimes being occupied by men of no talent for leadership; at other times by men of marked executive ability.

When Governor Dale returned to England in 1618, Sir George Yeardley was appointed to succeed him. The colony at that time numbered nearly two thousand men of high character. Many of these men, owing to the law of primogeniture, lived at home under a great disadvantage, and could accomplish something for themselves, only by going to some part of the world where that law was not operative in its strictest construction. On the 29th day of January, 1619, the ship George sailed from England and landed the following April at Jamestown, Virginia, nearly a year before the more famous ship, the Mayflower, came to Plymouth's shore. This vessel brought the new governor, Sir George Yeardley and about one hundred passengers; among whom were Dr. John Woodson, of Dorsetshire, and his wife Sarah, whom he had married in Devonshire. Tradition has it that her maiden name was Winston, but no documentation has been found to prove this. Dr. Woodson came in the capacity of surgeon to a company of soldiers who were sent over for the protection of the colonist against the Indians.

It was during the administration of Governor Yeardley that the settlements were divided into eleven burroughs, each of which was allowed two representatives. These representatives were called burgesses, and when assembled, constituted the house of burgess’s, which, with the governor and council, formed the general assembly or colonial government. This general assembly convened at Jamestown, June 19, 1619, and was the first legislative assembly to perform its functions in Virginia.

Dr. John Woodson was a man of high character and of great value to the colony. He was born about 1586, in Devonshire, England, matriculated at St. Johns' College, March 1, 1604, at the age of eighteen.

Like other gentlemen of his time, he, no doubt had a desire to see the new country in which the Virginia Company of London had planted their colony a dozen years previously, so at the age of thirty-three he, with his wife, Sarah, embarked on the ship George.

Sometime in 1620 a vessel landed at Jamestown, having on board about twenty negro captives whom the Dutch skipper had kidnapped somewhere on the coast of Africa. These were sold to the colonist as slaves and found to be quite profitable in the cultivation of tobacco which was the staple crop at that time.

Dr. John Woodson, at this time or shortly afterwards, bought six of these Africans who were registered in 1623 as part of his household, but no names were given.

It was also during this year, 1620, that the London Company sent over about one hundred maids, respectable young women possessed of no wealth but of irreproachable character, who desired to seek their fortunes in the new world. The young men of the colony eagerly sought their hands in marriage.

Dr. John Woodson located at Fleur de Hundred, or, as it was sometimes called, Piersey's Hundred, some thirty miles above Jamestown on the south side of the James River in what is now Prince George County. He and his wife, Sarah, and their six negro slaves were registered at Fleur de Hundred in February 1623 Their two sons John and Robert were probably born at Fleur De Hundred. John was born in 1632 and Robert in 1634. There was also a daughter named Deborah.

The colonist lived in constant dread of an Indian uprising against them. There had never been any real peace or confidence between the two races since the great massacre of 1622.

On 18, April 1644, the Indians made a sudden attack upon the settlements and killed about three hundred of the colonists. The following account is family tradition and has been passed down through many generations. When the Indians attacked in April of 1644, Dr. Woodson was among those killed. He was returning home from seeing a patient and he was massacred by the Indians within sight of his home. Sarah managed to hold off the Indians along with a man named Col. Thomas Ligon, b. 1586 Madresfield, England, the cousin of Sir William Berkeley, Royal Governor of Virginia. He served in the House of Burgesses 1644-1645, was a Justice for Charles City County 1657 and was Lt. Col. Militia, Henrico County during the Indian wars. Sarah gave Col. Ligon her husband's gun and set about to find a weapon for herself. Looking for a place to hide the children, she spied a tub nearby; it was the only thing large enough to conceal a boy of ten. She placed John under the tub, and then managed to securely hide Robert in the potato pit.

While Col. Ligon found a tree notch to brace the eight-foot muzzle-loading gun, Sarah was back in the house. Two Indians who were in the process of descending inside the chimney met her. She disabled the first with a pot of boiling water and felled the second with a roasting pit. (The reader must accept this account as given, no explanation has been offered as to why the Indians would risk a smoking chimney with a hot fire at the bottom. There has been no account of where little Deborah was hidden during the attack). Col. Ligon had, in the meantime, killed seven Indians as they approached the house. It was not until after the Indians had fled that Sarah and Col. Ligon found that her husband had been killed.

Mrs. Venable, of Chicago, gave the eight-foot muzzle-loading gun to the Virginia Historical Society in 1927. She was a direct descendant of the Virginia Woodson’s and felt that the prized relic should be back home in Virginia. The gun bears the name "Collicot" and is said to predate 1625. It is protected carefully from moisture and scarring by the use of a protective blanket. Whether the details of the massacre are exactly as related, the gun stands as a stark testimony of the event and the times.

There is apparently no record of whether John and Sarah Woodson were then living at Peircey's Hundred or whether they had already settled on the north side of the James at "Curles". The Indians under the Powhatan Confederation attacked the English settlements on the outlying plantations, under the leadership of Chief Opechancanough. Under the new governor, Sir William Berkeley, the colonist retaliated decisively and captured the chief. Berkeley also imposed a treaty that brought a guarded peace for a generation.

Due to the loss of a great many of the ancient records of Virginia, there is no further record of Sarah and her children. The presence of John and Robert Woodson in "Curles" in 1679 is certainly compatible with the time frame of the preceding events. Robert gave a deposition in June 1680 in which he described himself as being "aged about 46 years". He would have then been born in 1634. It is believed that his brother, John, was the eldest. The surname of Woodson is uncommon enough to believe that they were the same family.

There is additional information about the lives of John and Sarah that has been handed down for generations. The Woodson genealogy written by Charles Woodson (II), the son of Charles and Mary Plesants Woodson was given to Sarah Bates, the daughter of Thomas Fleming Bates while she was visiting her Uncle Charles. It is thought that Charles (I) the son of Tarleton wrote a part of the genealogy. It was this information that Dr. R.A. Brock used to write his booklet "Descendants of John Woodson of Dorcetshire, England", in 1888. The book originally sold for fifty cents a copy. It was this booklet that has been used as a source material frequently since. Charles Woodson (I) was born about 1711; his father, Tarleton Woodson, born in the 1680's, died in 1763; Tarleton's father died in 1715, but a short time after the death of his father, Robert. It would seem that Charles Woodson (I) would have had an excellent opportunity to learn from his ancestors. His account not only supplied details of the lives of John and Sarah, but the link between them and John and Robert, who were living at "Curles" in 1679.

Later information seems to indicate that Sarah married again, which would surely have been reasonable. There may have been other children, which also seems logical, given the fact that John and Sarah were married before 1620. There is also supposition that there were two Sarah Woodson’s, the first one that came over from England with John, and possibly died here, and then another marriage to a Sarah who was the mother of John and Robert. A volume of Henrico County miscellaneous court records, 1650-1807, has been assembled from loose papers from the county records. An inventory for the estate of Sarah Johnson was recorded. It was, in effect, both a nuncupative will and an inventory of her possessions. She was identified as Sarah Johnson, widow, deceased and the date it was recorded was 17, January 1660.

The inventory leaves little doubt that Sarah Woodson married a second time to a Mr. Dunwell, and a third time to a Mr. Johnson. Her three husbands all dying before her. It seems unlikely that both John and Robert would have been involved in her affairs, and thus the disposition of her estate, had they not been her sons. Deborah may have been still under twenty-one at the time of her mother's death since Sarah was concerned about providing for her maintenance. Even though the daughter Sarah was not mentioned as being one of the children that Sarah hid during the fight with the Indians; she could have been pregnant at the time, delivering the child after her husband's death.

Children of John Woodson and Sarah Winston Woodson:

1. John Woodson2 b. 1632 m. 2nd Sarah Browne, d. 1684.

2. Robert Woodson b. 1634 m. Elizabeth Ferris, d. ca. 1707. Last known to be living in 1707, Henrico Co., VA. when he made a deed to his grandson, William and Joseph Lewis. He married Elizabeth Ferris, daughter of Richard Ferris, of Henrico, with whom, among others, received a patent, 21, October 1687, for 1785 acres at White Oak Swamp in Varina Parish, in that county. This man was the direct ancestor of Jesse Woodson James, and his brother, Alexander Franklin "Frank" James, the famous James Boys. Robert2 Woodson married Elizabeth Ferris: son Benjamin3 Woodson, married Sarah Porter; their son Robert4 Woodson (d. 1748/50) married Rebecca Pryor. Their daughter Elizabeth married Shadrach Mims (1734-1777) and became the mother of Elizabeth Mims (b. 1769) who married Robert Poor (1763-1801), a cornet in the American Revolutionary War. Their daughter in turn, Mary Poor, (died 1825) married John James (1775-1827), son of William and Mary (Hinds) James of Goochland County, Virginia. Their son Robert Sallee James, who died in the Gold Rush area of California, married Zerelda Cole and they had sons Frank James and Jesse James. (See: Background of a Bandit, by Joan M. Beamis and William E. Pullen (1971).

Jesse Woodson James, the bandit, married his cousin Zerelda "Zee" Amanda Mims. She was also a descendant of Elizabeth Woodson Mims, who married Robert Poor.

3. Deborah (mentioned in mothers will).


John2 Woodson has been generally accepted as the son of John and Sarah Woodson of Flowerdew Hundred and Piercey's Hundred. He may have been born about 1632. John was listed among the tithables living at "Curles" in Henrico County on 2, June 1679. It is interesting to note that, while the brother, John and Robert, had not been identified as Mister in the list of tithables of 1679, they were so identified in their land patents. None of the Woodson men of that time were literate; however, they were substantial citizens and respected planters. He was further listed as one of forty men who were ordered by the court to "fitt out men horse and arms" according to the Act of the Assembly. He was credited with three tithables and John Woodson, Jr., his son, was credited with two.

John married about 1660, but the name of his wife and the mother of his children is not known. It's possible that Mary Plesants was the mother of his children. He apparently married a second time to Sarah Browne, the widow of John Browne. When she made her will, she left her personal property to the children of her first marriage.

John died in 1684. He made his will on 20, August 1684 and his son, John3, presented it in court on 1, October 1684. In his will he named his brother Robert's four youngest children.

Mrs. Sarah Browne Woodson, widow, took it upon herself to operate the ferry that her son, Jeremiah Browne, has contracted to maintain. She informed the court in 1690 that it was she, who had kept the ferry, and she was entitled to the county levy. She paid 2000 pounds of tobacco yearly until her death for keeping the ferry. Sarah Woodson, widow, was credited with 650 acres of land in the quit rents rolls of 1704 for Henrico County. She wrote her will on 24, February 1701 and her daughter, Temperance Farrar, was granted probate of the will on 1, November, 1704 in Henrico County.

Children of John Woodson2 and his 1st wife (unknown):

1. John Woodson3, born before 1663 in Virginia

2. Robert Woodson, whose later whereabouts or children, after he was named in his father's will, are unknown. Had two children: Jane and Samuel.


John3 Woodson, son of John2 Woodson and his wife (name unknown), was born before 1663, in Henrico Co., VA. and died there before 1 May 1700, aged about 37 years.

He married about 1677 to Mary Tucker, daughter of Capt. Samuel Tucker and his wife Jane Larcome. Mary Woodson died in 1710 in Henrico County. She is said to have been the orphan of a ship's captain. The name of Samuel Tucker's vessel was the Vinetree. He was trading on the Virginia coast and perhaps died at sea. His widow, Jane (Larcome) Tucker, then married John Pleasants, of Curles, Henrico County, VA.

John's will, was proved in court 1, May 1700. His widow made her will on 24, September 1709 and it was proved 1, August 1710 in the Henrico Court at Varina. Her mother, Jane Pleasants had only died the previous year. Her will is dated 2, January 1708/09 and was proved at the same court in June 1709, it shows she had Tucker and Pleasants offspring, and also names some of her Woodson grandchildren.

Children of John Woodson3 and Mary Tucker Woodson:

1. Joseph Woodson married three times, first to Mary Sanburne, second Elizabeth Scott and third Elizabeth Murry.

2. Samuel Tucker Woodson, died 1718 without issue, will 1717, proved 7, July 1718, naming brothers Joseph and Benjamin, sister Jane and cousin Tarleton.

3. Benjamin Woodson, born about 1693, Henrico County, VA. Married Frances Napier. See Napier Family.

4. Jane Woodson married her first cousin, once removed, Joseph Woodson, son of Robert2 Woodson (John1) and wife Elizabeth Ferris.


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 ¹10. 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.

William Hansard is reported to have given the land where Hansard's Chapel Methodist Church was established. The first building was a log cabin, and the second building was destroyed by fire in the 1940's. The current building was constructed soon after.

One note indicated her name might have been KLEIN. Others have given BEAVER as her name. Ed KILLIAN RIN 4634 (who has made an extensive study of George, son of Andreas KILLIAN RIN 51) believes her name in German was Maria Bieber Klein or anglicized to Mary Beaver Cline.
!Birth: was given as about 1700 to correspond with his age. This is unlikely if the children are hers.

Marriage and issue

The date and venue of Henry's first marriage, to Mary de Bohun, are uncertain, but her marriage licence, purchased by Henry's father John of Gaunt in June 1380 is preserved at the National Archives. The accepted date of the ceremony is 5 February 1381, at Mary's family home of Rochford Hall, Essex.[2] Alternately, the near-contemporary chronicler Jean Froissart reports a rumour that Mary's sister Eleanor de Bohun kidnapped Mary from Pleshey Castle and held her at Arundel Castle, where she was kept as a novice nun; Eleanor's intention was to control Mary's half of the Bohun inheritance (or to allow her husband, Thomas of Woodstock, 1st Duke of Gloucester, to control it).[24][25] There Mary was persuaded to marry Henry. They had six children:[26]

Henry V of England (1386–1422)
Thomas of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Clarence (1387–1421)
John of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Bedford (1389–1435)
Humphrey of Lancaster, 1st Duke of Gloucester (1390–1447)
Blanche of England (1392–1409) married in 1402 Louis III, Elector Palatine
Philippa of England (1394–1430) married in 1406 Eric of Pomerania, king of Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Mary died in 1394, and on 7 February 1403 Henry married Joanna of Navarre, the daughter of Charles d'âEvreux, King of Navarre, at Winchester. She was the widow of John V of Brittany, with whom she had had four daughters and four sons; however, her marriage to the King of England was to be childless. But Henry had already four sons from his first marriage, which was undoubtedly a clinching factor in his acceptability for the throne. By contrast, Richard II had no children and Richard's heir-presumptive Edmund Mortimer was only seven years old. The only two of Henry's six children who produced children to survive to adulthood were Henry V and Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester. Henry IV's male Lancaster line ended in 1471 during the War of the Roses, between the Lancastrians and the Yorkists, with the deaths of his grandson Henry VI and Henry VI's son Edward, Prince of Wales. The descendants of Henry IV's son Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, include Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, queen consort of George VI and mother of Elizabeth II,[27] and the Queen's current daughters-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.[28]

676 "...My mother's sister, Ella, who was named for Grandmother Merriman's sister, Aunt Ella Kesey, married Mr. Joe Harmon. They had four children, three daughters, and one son.The daughters were Josie,Lula and Frankie.The son was Billy. My mother was very close to her sister, Ella and family. They seemed to have a lot in common and enjoyed being together very much. However, this wonderful association was to last only a few years.

They were all saddened and grieved by the sudden death of Aunt Ella. The children were young when their mother passed away, but uncle Joe, who was a very fine man, did a marvelous job in taking care of them. He realized the difficulty he faced in trying to be both a father and mother to his children, but he was determined to meet the responsibility.

My mother said Joe Harmon was such a good and kind man that he put the welfare of his children above everything else. Uncle Joe devoted his life to his children and denied himself the possibility of happiness in another marriage. He lived on a farm in the Smyrna Community, but it seems that he was more interested in the timber business. However, this was all changed by an accident involved in hauling a load of lumber. One leg was so badly injured that it had to be amputated. As a result of this accident Uncle Joe was forced to turn to something less active. This he did by opening a country store. Since he was such a nice, friendly person, his operation of the country store proved to be very successful."

Anderson's son Thomas and wife Elizabeth mentioned in the 1820 Census of Warren County had a son Nathan., b. N. C.p 1817 and a daughter Nancy, b. Tenn.y 1819.

He was mentioned in the 1850 Census of Cannon County and owned land there in 1844.

He and Eliza beth are also mentioned in the 1860 Census of Cannon County and evidently he died there before the 1870 Census. His granddaughter, in an affidavit stated that she was born in 1873, a daughter of John Newton Womack who was the son of Thomas. She also stated that Thomas died at the home of his son, John Newton Womack in Cannon County., and she thought he died before she was born. Her name was Julia Ann Davenport, Lebanon, Tenn.
