Willis johnson of Mills Cty, Tx, was charged with abduction of a 16 year old away from her family so she could marry an older man around 1880 or 1881 in Brown Cty, Tx. I would like to know who filed the charges and who the 16 year old was. I believe her to be Hesira F. Mosley, Daniel and Harriett Mosley daughter.I have heard about this story of the 16 year old most of my life and believe her to be my Great Grandmother. Supposedly she ran off with a cowboy (A.C. Johnson) who came to Brown County on a cattle drive from louisana. My grand mother, Dannie Mae Johnson, was born Nov 10, 1881. Family says oklahoma, Census for 1890 and later says Texas.
Have met a dead end and need some help which would be greatly appreciated.
