According to the Certificate of Death of Arch W. Johnson, Wm. Johnson was his father and his mother's maiden name was Evans. Arch was born in Alabama on February 28, 1851.

The 1880 U.S. Census for Kelly Township, Ripley County, Missouri lists W.O. Johnson as the father of A. Johnson. A. Johnson was 29 years old in June 1880 and was born in Alabama. His father was born in Tennessee and his mother in Alabama. W.O. Johnson was 57 years old and was born in Tennessee.

W.O. Johnson's children were: A. Johnson (29 years old and born in Alabama); W.O. Jr. (20 years old and born in Texas); B.A. Johnson (17 years old and born in Missouri); and E.J. Johnson (15 years old and born in Missouri).

The 1870 U.S. Census for Jasper Township, Camden County, Missouri lists Wm. Johnston as the father of Archibald (19 years old and born in Alabama), Fredric (12 years old and born in Texas), William C. (10 years old and born in Texas), Rebeca A. (8 years old and born in Missouri), and Evia J. (5 years old and born in Missouri). Three houses away is Isaac Johnston, 24 years old, born in Alabama

The 1860 U.S. Census for District #1, Hopkins County, Texas, lists Archibald Johnson as 9 years old and born in Alabama. His father was born in Tennessee and his mother in Alabama. William Johnson was 35 years old (born in 1825) and was born in Tennessee. His wife, Jane Johnson was 33 and was born in Alabama. Their children were Isaac Johnson (13 years old and born in Alabama), Reubin Johnson (11 years old and born in Alabama), Archibald Johnson (9 years old and born in Alabama), Frederic Johnson (3 years old and born in Texas), and William Johnson (7/12 years old and born in Texas).

The 1850 U.S. Census for Jackson County, Alabama, Township 5, Range 5, Enumeration District 20, has William Johnson as 28 years old and born in Tennessee. His wife, Giney, was 20 years old and born in Alabama. Their children were: Isaac (3 years old and born in Alabama) and Rubin (1 year old and born in Alabama). They lived two dwellings away from Archibal and Rachel Evins. Archibal was 25 years old and was born in Alabama.

The Bureau of Land Management Accession/Serial # AL3670_.269, Document No. 14912, lists William Owen Johnson in Aliquot Parts NWNE, Section/Block 28/ , Township 5-S, Range 5-E, Meridian Huntsville, State AL, Counties, Jackson. This land grant was purchased on March 10th, 1852. This agrees with the federal census of 1850 as described above for T5R5. The copy of the land grant describes the area of land as 40.13 acres. The Agricultural Census of 1850 lists William Johnson at the same location as having 40 acres of undeveloped land.

From an Email 13 Aug 2008: The original plat book does not contain personal information about individuals. However, years ago I corresponded with a descendant of William Owen Johnson and made a note by his name in my 1850 hard copy of the Jackson County census to the effect that William Johnson married Jane (Gincy) Evans and they moved to Hopkins Co, TX by 1860. The Medlin Dunham who lived next door to William Johnson in 1850 had married Sarah Johnson, and the Medlens moved to Phillips Co, MO, circa 1855-1857. The Archibald Evans who lived next door to the Medlens had married Rachel Benson.

This is all the personal info I have on William Owen Johnson. William Johnson's land was located southeast of Alabama Highway 79 and was sitiuated between Mink Creek and Sauty Creek. Both these creeks empty into the Guntersville Reservoir of the Tennessee River.

If any one could help add additional info, I would greatly appreciate it!

Jim Johnson
