Jesse T Johnson (born abt 1836, died between 1890 and 1900)

Copyright 2006, Will Johnson,, Professional Genealogist, All Rights Reserved

He was born 3 Feb 1834 in Laurens District, South Carolina, to Edward Young Johnson and his wife Mary Eason, or perhaps a prior wife, since Edward and Mary did not marry until 1838.

He married Edna S "Edny" between 1853 and 1854, probably in Georgia, and possibly in Paulding County. She was born abt 1839 in Georgia. I do not know her maiden name.

They lived in Paulding County, Georgia in 1860, where he was a Blacksmith. Jesse T Johnson was a sergeant in Company F, 40th Regiment, Georgia Infantry, CSA and was a prisoner of war. In the 1867 Oath Book in Paulding County is where he states his exact birth date and birth location. Between 1868 and 1874, the family moved to Arkansas where by 1880 they were enumerated at Hempstead County, Arkansas, where he was a Farmer.

He was still living in 1890 when he paid a tax receipt and when he and his wife donated land to the Bethany Baptist Church.

He died between 1890 and 1900, probably in Spring Hill, Hempstead County, Arkansas. Jesse and Edna may be buried in Bethany Cemetery, Hempstead County, Arkansas but if so, they have no tombstones remaining.
