Johnsons of Wayne Co/Anderson Co/KY

I am looking for ancestors (or any leads) on the following people who were in Anderson County, Ky:

1. William H. Johnson (b ca 1816 Wayne Co Ky ; d. 1888 Anderson Co., Ky, married 1844 Anderson Co., Ky., to Narcisse F. Strange (b ca 1819 Woodford Co., Ky) ; d. 1893 Anderson Co., Ky. They had a son Gerald aka Jerry Johnson
(1846-1919) who m. Pairlee (1854-1919) who both died in Anderson Co., Ky.

2. My ancestor, Melvin Johnson (b ca 1834 in Ky; d ca 1897 in Ky) married 1852 in Anderson Co., Ky., to Mary Elizabeth Duvall (b: NOV 1834 in Owen Co., Ky).

3. Francis T. Johnson and Parthenia Johnson are also associated somehow with Melvin, as they appear on his marrige bond. Melvin and Mary lived in Anderson, but ended up in Franklin Co., Ky., having 8 children.

4. Also, the 1850 Anderson Co., Ky Census places Melvin Johnson, age 16, born in Kentucky, as a farmer living with the Willis Dixon family. Also living there were Richard Thompson (b ca 1829) and his wife Katherine (b ca 1832).
They lived next door to Francis T. and Keziah (Duvall) Johnson, likely Melvin's relatives. Francis T. was b ca 1818. Note: Francis may have been a brother of Wm H. Johnson (above) who was born in 1816 in Wayne Co., Ky.

Please contact me direct at

Any assistance would be appreciated!
