Notes for JOHN JOHNSON:
Mary and John Johnson went to Texas and had 15 children. Married 22 Oct 1810, Hardeman Co., TN (other chart says Overton Co., TN- did county name change?)
John (Johnny) Johnson d. about 1852/3, Lamar Co., TX (possible brother to James Johnson who m. Nancy Chisum, dau of John Chisum-??)
On Aug 19 1837, in Hardeman Co., TN, John Johnson who was about to move to Texas, left a power of atty with his son, James to transact business, collect debts and make deed to the tract of land where he lived on the Hatchie River. It was registered 17 Jan 1838 and cancelled on 9 Apt. 1839 by both parties when John returned for a visit to Tennessee.
A letter found among the Balmer Papers relates from Polly's father James to his parents Elijah and Lucy of an illness Polly was suffering after her first child was born. 29 July 1811. (See notes of James StewartChisum for letter)
The Mallary book states: "Mary Chisum, oldest daughter of James Chisum and granddaughter of Thomas and Anne Eppes Gibbons, married John Johnson in 1810 in Hardeman Co., TN. After the death of James and Elizabeth Gibbons Chisum, around 1840, the whole family began "going west" until by the time Texas was a state, most of the Chisums were in Texas. James Johnson, their only son, married Nancy Chisum granddaughter. of Elijah Chisum.
Upon the death of John and Mary Johnson the estate was left to be divided equally among his named children. It was a large estate...The records are in the Paris Co., TX court house. Marilyn Lynch says that she has heard there were more children of John and Mary Johnson, but at the time of the settlement, only the ten named children received a share..."Each child received #3,467.64 in cash on 28 Nov 1853".
In 1860, Nacogdoches Co., TX census A .A. Johnson (male), age 15? Johnson (female), age 12; Permelia Johnson, age 10 and Kaufman Johnson, age 8, are found living in the household of James Jacobs(who m Mary Chisum, dau . of old Elijah). Other minors in their household are Samuel Chisum, age 8, Rebecca Chisum, age 6, Nancy Chisum, age 4 and John Chisum, age 4.
These Johnson children in Jacobs household are possible grandchildren of this John and Mary Johnson. (see Mary Chisum & James Jacobs in old Elijah section).
At this point I don't know the parents of the Chisum minors.
Received John Johnson line from M. Louise (Click) McPherson, Canyon Lake, TX
John told people he was orphaned early. Eva Turner Clark states he was the son of Duncan Johnson who died 1820 in Madison Co. TN There was a Duncan Johnson in that area, but he appeared on the 1823 Hardeman Co. TN. tax list. Mrs. Clark offered no proof of this son/father relationship in any of her works that Louise McPherson viewed.
