I am looking for young John Johnson, son of Saphrona (Sophie) Johnson. Both are from Mississippi.
John was born in 1855. Sophie, John and another child Emma appear in Texas in 1860. She is single (probably widowed). Emma was born in 1858. I have records for all of them from 1860 forward.
In searching through MS records, the only Sophie I can find who is marriageable age that attaches to the Johnson name is Sophie Ann Hayden, who married William Johnson in 1855 in Clarke County.
There is a William Johnson who died in 1862 in the Civil War. Sophie remarried in 1862/63 and had more children. William is buried at Enterprise in Clarke County. I would love any info on him that is available.
Sophie Ann Hayden was the daughter of William Hayden.
I am looking for any records that connect John Johnson to Sophie Hayden and William Johnson. This would be my husband's direct line, so we are very keen to find the link.
