Thanks for the response Harry...

I do have the 20 children, it's been awhile since I did anything on the Colley's so I don't remember if I have the birthdates or not of all of them. My wife descends from the group that stayed on the "original farm" (a rarity) and I think that is the group that also descends back through Charles that you mention but I am not sure. My wife's father was Charles and his father also an Edward (the more recent generations of course). I don't have any other information on the 20 children - no marriages, where they went etc. I'd be interested in knowing some of that for starters. I know two sets of Johnsons who are related, the ones that lived at Wightman (Charles)and the ones living near Union Level (Dr. Samuel, if my memory is correct)... are you related to either of those groups? I assume you are familar with the Colley home place?

Regards... Charles
