Johnson Genealogy - Knox, Blount and Monroe County, Tennessee
Welcome to my Johnson web pages. This name is also spelled Johnston. I have two other Johnson lines, not related to this one. Click here to see more on the Johnsons of Horry and Marion Co., SC.
My most recent Johnson ancestor is Nancy Johnson (1804-1852) who married Samuel Hensley 1823 in Knox Co., TN where she was born. She is a child of Robert Johnson (1759-1849) and Rachael Burnett. Robert is a son of Rev. William Johnson of Virginia and Tennessee.
Since this is such a very common name my interest is limited to Knox, Blount and Monroe Counties, no where else (except for my other lines in eastern SC).
