Thanks for your details, but I think there is a mix-up here. The John Johnson that married Susannah Cloninger on Oct. 6, 1841 in Union County, GA. was John D.J. Johnson, not John Wesley Johnson.

(see below his family living together in 1805 Union County, GA. census file:

These notes were submitted by Dean Everett, Blairsville, GA, to the Union County Georgia Heritage book:

By 1840, John and his family had settled in Union Co in the Choestoe area living next door to his son-in-law, Elias Berry, who married John's eldest daughter, Sarah.

Family history relates that after his first's wife death, John went back to North Carolina and married his second wife, a full-blooded Cherokee names Susan. Records show that John Johnson did marry a Susannah Cloringer on 10/6/1841 in Union Co.

When John died, he was buried on the top of the hill between the Johnson and the Berry farms.

Did you have your John Wesley Johnson living in Union County, GA during 1841 that you selected that marriage license as his? Can you please send more details as to why you think this Susan Cloninger could be the daughter of Jacob and Jane Cloninger? I wish I knew more about Susan Cloninger to be able to make that connection. According to the Georgia Census files, she was born about 1815 in NC.

The 1860 Georgia census notes her still living with John D. Johnson and children in Union County, GA.:

The 1870 Georgia census shows here after John D. Johnson died in 1870 living with daughter:

Family #148 -
Johnson, Susannah - age 65 - farmer - North carolina
- , Elizabeth - age 22 - keeping house - Georgia
The 1880 Georgia census shows her with other daughter and family:

So, I wonder which Cloninger family this Susannah would belong to from NC? Any ideas?

Linda Johnson
