I am looking for information regarding the indian massacre in Hopewell Tx, Williamson co, in 1863 of members of the Wofford Johnson family. The ones killed were Wofford Johnson b:unknown, Mary? Moore b:unk (wife),Mary b:unk.(daughter). Survivors were Elvira Johnson b:abt 1859 and Georgianna b:abt 1862. The two children went to live with their grandfather Jessee Moore in Bell county. I have looked at the Online Tx handbook and I think there may be more info in the book titled "Land of Good Water-a Williamson Co history"
I located Georgianna in the 1880 bell census living with Mary A Moore b:abt 1824 who is a widowed aunt and Elvira (i believe) married a man by the name of Rice J Barber, which i located them on the same census.
I have been unable to find any info on Wofford Johnson (census, land records etc) who is an uncle to my GGG grandmother, Katherine "katie" Carolina Johnson b:May 9, 1839 Spartanburg SC married to George Washington Proctor b:1841 MO.
Wofford Johnson might Possibly be related to Nathaniel W Johnson b:abt 1813 SC and Nancy Johnson-Smith b: 1812 married to Thomas H Smith.
Any info at all would be appreciated!
