Land Records of William Johnson

From Perry County Recorder in Cannelton, Indiana:

"We have a deed in November 19, 1831 where William and Susanna Johnson sold real estate. The next deed we found is where William and Phebe Johnson sold real estate in May, 1853. There is no mention of any wife on any other deed until 1866 and it is listed as William B. and Sara A. Johnson which I assume is another William Johnson"


  1. Humm, my great great grandfather was Daniel Johnson born in Kentucky in 1812 and died in Rockport Missouri in 1867. His wife was Sara Ann HAYS Johnson.........could there be a connection, or is William B here the spouse. I've not been able to connect Daniel to any Johnson line as of yet.

  2. I know I'm missing a lot of children in My 3rd Generation Johnson Family.
    Matthew Johnson (~1777 - ?) and 1) unknown (died before 1815):
    Ann Johnson (1795 - ?) m. Lewis Jenkins
    Ignatious Johnson (1802-1840) m. Ann McGlothlin (Ignatious has a son Daniel - I notice they use the same family names over and over)
    William M. Johnson (1803-1861) m. 1) Susannah Jenkins 2) Pheobe Rhodes
    James Johnson (??) m. Mary Jenkins

    Thomas Johnson (brother of Matthew) also had other children I don't have recorded. So far I just have three daughters:
    Susannah Johnson
    Elizabeth Johnson
    Mary Johnson
