In Reply to: Abington / Abingdon Johnson b 1850 Iowa by Judith M. White of 1676

Hi, Judith,

Abington Johnson is my gr-gr-grandfather. He had one son, Sam Warren Johnson, and 5 daughters. Four of the daughters lived to be adults.

This is like a special Christmas gift because I had long given up on this Johnson line. The ancestors moved around too much, we weren't particularly close to this line of the family, and the sheer number of Johnsons made it seem like a lost cause.

The 1850 Wapello County, Iowa census that you refer to is not on line (at least not at the USGenWeb site), so I am glad the info is in your previous query. I have read the other posts also. Is it certain that Abington's father's name is Harrington, and is Harrington connected to Uriah - possibly a brother, son or cousin? Since 42 years separate the two births, it is more likely a son or nephew (although not impossible).

Are you a direct descendant of Abington? I can give you some info on other descendants, although some of it is scanty. Hope to hear from you soon!
