Johnson Genealogy - Horry and Marion County, South Carolina

Genealogy > Johnson/Johnston

Welcome to my Johnson genealogy pages. I am interested in the Johnson surname in Horry Co., South Carolina and in neighboring Marion Co., SC. Since this is one of the most common surnames my interest is strictly limited to these two counties (and to Marion's "child" counties to some extent, namely Florence and Dillon).

My old Johnson Pages - I created web pages for many of the Johnson families. These are old and way out of date, but they do still contain useful information, so I've left them online for now, pending transfering all the data to my new database. Keep in mind that they haven't been updated in years. Refer to my newer pages before offering any "corrections."

Johnson Family Pages - Each Johnson family has their own web page, complete with all documentation I've found so far.  The link will take you to the surname index. Find the "Johnson" surname and click on it and an index of all individuals will be displayed. Or you can use the search engine (to the left) to find a specific family or person.

11 Jul 2018 - Reformatted main Johnson page.

30 Jun 2018 - (1) Edited family of Zachariah Johnson (1849-aft 1900) and wife Nancy Virginia Burbage, prompted by email from Susan Denard. I had Nancy's MN as Singleton because her mother is Mary J. Singleton as proven by several sources. However, upon closer examination of 1850, 1860 and later censuses, it seems Mary was either a widow Singleton, or a single mother Singleton by 1850. Joseph A. Burbage (c1810 VA), schoolmaster, was living with her in 1850 at which time she had a 1 year old son (also named Joseph Burbage). She had Nancy Virginia in 1851. Joseph A. Burbage vanishes from the record after that, yet Mary remains a Singleton on all subsequent records, so it seems she and Mr. Burbage didn't marry, or else did and then divorced.

(2) Also edited family of Zachariah R. Johnson (1864) and wife Nancy M. Skipper, since I initially thought that's who Susan was asking about. Added some census record abstracts through 1940.

See this page and this one and this one and this one for the above families.
