    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.

  • Notes 
    • According to participate Dickson Hamblin Greer 8 families left Milam County, Texas on March 5th including the "Widow Johnson" (Nancy Reddick Greer Johnson) and 6 grown children, 3 boys and 3 girls.

      The journal of Edward Stevenson (company leader) lists Nancy Johnson (widow), Nancy Johnson Jr., Victoria Johnson, Alfrid Johnson, James Johnson, Lycurgus Johnson, Leonidas Johnson.

      It appears that Nathaniel had died before the family left Texas in 1855.

      The 1850 census also does not seem to show Nathaniel. Since the 1840 census did not list name it is difficult to know if Nathaniel was alive at that time. However, since the 1840 census displays 6 members of the family that would lead us to believe he died before the age of 10.
