    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.

My grandfather was Lawrence Conrad Wagner, born April 3, 1895. I believe Lorenz/Lawrence was his father. The things I have read about Lorenz/Lawrence and Conrad confirm things I remember hearing as a child: brewery, Colorado Springs. My mom has even pointed out the house where they lived here in Colorado Springs when her father was a young child. My mother, Betty Anne Wagner was adopted by Lawrence Conrad and Kathryn Wagner in the Kansas City area in 1930. I was 4-1/2 years old when my ... Read More

I worded my comment wrong. I did not mean that she married W.Levi but he was the next generation, their son.I should have reread it before posting. Sorry. Your Uncle Happy was my grandfather.

She died probably in 1878 and is buried in the Laketown cemetery. Her headstone has the wrong death year.Her ... Read More

The Info in your post is interesting, however incorrect. Eveline Miller Green is my Great Grandmother and her daughter Lodeama Amelia was married to my Grandfather Jonathan Marion. However I can\\\'t see how see married W. Levi Hammon as she died just a few months after giving birth to my father Jonathan Marion D Hammon. However I do know whom G Uncle Happy did marry. Any info you have I would like to share. PLEASE CONTACT ME. Thanks
