I am researching Aesop (Easop) Johnson b. abt. 1781 in either NJ or PA. There is differing information concerning his marriage or marriages. The first wife's name isn't known, but she is apparently the mother of 7 children born between 1803 and 1815. He is then reputed to have married Rosanna (Surname unknown) in 1816 in Pennsylvania. Rosanna was born abt. 1786 in PA. I have located Aesop Johnson in Turkeyfoot Township, Somerset County, PA, in 1810. By 1820, he and his family are in Wayne Township, Tuscarawas County, Ohio, where they remained until his death in 1853. Rosanna Johnson died in 1855 in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. I am looking for information that would define Aesop Johnson's family, his parents and his marriage or marriages. I have occasionally found his surname as Johnston. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
