Welcome To Our Place

This is a work in progress! Please check back for added information. Updated 07/19/2009

The JOHNSON line and affiliated families is a shared research project with my mother, Andrea (Dee) Hood Bucha. Together we have followed the trails and investigated family stories (one of which turned out that what was believed to be the family dog's gravesite was actually a son!) and someday will finish the family story. Until then, it is a joint work in progress and any additional information is welcome.

HELP! with THE THEORY for the next generation of Johnsons

Boughs and Branches: The following surnames represent a direct line descendency

The Hubbard Johnson family begins in Ashe/Wilkes Co., NC. and moves to Overton Co., TN. Indirect branches include surnames Cooper, Curtis, Danner and Gaw. Hubbard's wife was Elizabeth Webb. WEBB FAMILY WEAVINGS
John W. Johnson moved the family from Overton Co., TN to Grayson Co., and Mason Co., TX. Indirect lines include the surnames Anderson, Burnett, Cooper, Looney and Splittgerber. John's wife was Louisa Terry THE TERRY FAMILY TAP ROOT. We are lucky enough to have a number of letters written by John following his move to Texas. John's Letters Home
Jesse Lafayette Johnson's family lived and died in the area surrounding Mason Co., TX. His wife was Elrieda Auguste Katrine Splittgerber.
George Washington Johnson stayed in Texas. He married Edna Leafy Sessom SESSOM SETTLERS The Sessom/Sessums family settled in Hays Co., TX and Llano Co., TX with affiliated lines throughout Texas counties. The Sessom line is full of Texas History . Branches include BOREN Hudson, Jennings and Wood. In our research, we discovered quite a few Sessums that we feel may lead to our direct line.
Imogene Johnson married Lewis Andrew Hood THE HOODS The Hood family ranges from Arkansas to Texas and New Mexico, with a Simer(Picklesimer) branch. This line is difficult to track, so not much information is available. (Under construction)

The ARBURN line and affiliated families research has been a long, painstaking process done by my Mother-In-Law, Lavonne Kennedy Bradfield, affectionately (and with much appreciation for her help) dubbed by my Mother and I as "St. Lavonne, Patron Saint of Genealogy"

Surnames include:

This site contains over 7200 names! The Rutledge line is William Rutledge (1792-1867) but follows the Butler, Kennedy, Dingess, Smith and Shely families from Ireland to the US.
The Kennedy line begins with the earliest baptisms recorded in 1798, in the Parish of Errigal, County of Londonderry, Northern Ireland. There is extensive information here on the families of Bann Valley.
The Chadwick line begins in West Riding, Yorkshire, England with the earliest appearances of Chadwick's about 1631. Other surnames include Tattersfield and Breach. The Chadwicks lived in the Parishes of Batley and Dewsbury, and this site contains detailed information on these parishes.
The Henry Bradshaw (?-1689) line begins in Early England and moves through Canada. The Bradshaw name is one of the oldest recorded families in Britain, preceding the Norman Conquest in Haigh, Lancashire. (Under construction)
