Surname Saturday: JOHNSON

JOHNSON is an English and Scottish patronym from the personal name John. I have not researched this family much, due to the commonness of the surname and the time frame for this family requires searching other record collections besides vital and census records.

Stories and History:

Ahnentafel #86 - Nelson H. JOHNSON (1806 - 1857) - born in Connecticut, he married Catherine MASSEY (1812 - 1882) around 1836, probably in Michigan. They had six known children and lived in Ingham and Gratiot, Clinton and Montcalm Counties. He died in Washington Township, Gratiot County and is buried Hill/Danley Cemetery in Fulton Township of that county, along with his wife.

MacARTHUR (1827 - 1919) on 27 February 1863, probably in Montcalm County.
