Basil Johnson 1784 sounds like the son of Thomas Johnson and Hannah Mullineaux(also seen Mollineaux) from Lancashire, England settled in about 1790 Montgomery Co.,Maryland across the Patuxent River from the now Howard Co.,Maryland. Basil's brother Greenbury Gaither Johnson married Amelia Ann Thompson in Montgomery Co. and had a farm in Howard Co.,Maryland. His son Greenbury Johnson 1829- 1886 m.1 Virginia Brown from Crackin, Montgomery Co. Thomas and Hannah Johnson are buried on Federal Property because the farm is now part of the Triadelphia Dam,which seperates Montgomery Co.nd Howard Co. on the Patuxent River. There is a 1878 Atlas of Howard Co. showing some of the farms. My cousin said all the marriages were arranged till the 1900's. I know most of the family names because I went to school with their descendants. Beverly Bounds Davis
