The Search for Hubbard Johnson's Parents
This is my current theory and a work in progress. Any help here would be appreciated!
Important note: There is historical documentation of John Boswell Johnson who was the son of Thomas (Minor) Johnson and Jane Chapman. This John Boswell was born in 1770 and died in Sumner Co., TN in 1815. His will lists his wife Elizabeth (Thompson) and only three children: Thomas, Chapman and Mariah Barclay Johnson. This John Boswell Johnson does not appear to tie into this line.
JOHN BOSWELL JOHNSON/MARY CORNWELL
John Boswell Johnson was born in England and came to the Colonies (Hanover Co., VA) about 1765. He married Mary Cornwell who also came from England with her family about the same time. From Virginia they moved to North Carolina. I believe their children to be:
1. Daniel Johnson:1850 Jasper Co., MO Census p.374 Another researcher descends from this line and has established that Hubbard, John and Daniel were brothers.
2.Wesley Johnson: (a) The 1830 Overton Co., TN Census (p. 196) shows Wesley with three sons under the age of 5. In 1840 (Overton Co., TN p. 18), Wesley has two sons between the ages of of 10-15 and one son between the ages of 15-20. (b) The 1830 Overton Co., TN Census (p.196) also shows two females living with Wesley between the ages of 15-20. Based on the ages, I do not believe these to be Wesley's daughters, but I do not have any idea who they are. In 1840 (Overton Co., TN Census p. 18) there is only one female between 5-10 listed - this would be Amanda. (c) In 1850 Overton Co., TN (Census p. 121a), John and his young sons are living next door to Wesley. By 1860 (Overton Co., TN Census p. 159), John has disappeared and the two boys are living with Wesley and Elizabeth.
3. I have included Wesley as brother to Hubbard on the following facts:
