States: South Carolina: Pickens
I am in search of my ancestors. My 4th great grandfather was Andrew Pickens Johnson hence the reason I am posting here since the county was named after a man named Andrew Pickens. My grandfather was born in 1823 in South Carolina.
His father was Arnold Johnson and his mother's name was Nancy?. He had 4 brothers, Burwell, Samuel, Pleasant, and Arnold Jr. they all moved to Butts County GA around 1830. Possible with the exception of Arnold Sr. I believe he may have died and that was the reason for the relocation to GA. They won land as orphans in the Cherokee land lottery of 1832 which actually took place in 1829. If anyone has any information on an Arnold Johnson born around 1790-1795 in South Carolina, please contact me as soon as possible.
