    Notes 
    • There were at least two Willis Johnson in Texas in the 1840s. Peter Hansborough Bell, the governor of Texas, issued a proclamation in October 1851 stating that murder had been committed on the body of Willis Johnson on or about 25 October 1848. In 1859 Sarah Allday, the oldest child of Willis and Nancy Johnson filed a suit stating that her father had died on or about 20 December 1853.

      Some of the documents in this collection pertain to one of the "Willis Johnsons" living in Texas in the 1830-1850's time period. Everything that has been found has been posted on this site in order to aid in the collective research of all interested parties. As evidence is found to determine documents that refer to the Willis Johnson that died in 1848 they will be removed from this collection.

    The card in the bottom right hand corner of this pictures states that the two children are Willis L. Johnson, age 4 and Joseph Johnson age 2. If this is true then the year would be 1880. However, per the 1880 census this would leave out Alfred (age 21), Lucy (age 17), Sarah (age 13), and Leonidas (age 11) which seems highly unlikely. Instead this picture is probably of an earlier date of 1864 with Alfred and Lucy ages 6 and 2. The card also states that Alfred was the first Justice of the Peace. However, the book by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers entitled "Builders of Uintah" stages that Wilbur "Will" Carlton Britt was the first Justice of the Peace on page 18.
