RE: SAMPSON HAWS
Thank you for responding to my request. I have the 10 May 1831 land patent
(Sec. 17: Twp. 5-S, Rng. 4-E) for Sampson Haws. Also, on that same date, my
ancestor, John Johnson, received a land patent (Sec. 32: Twp. 2-S: Rng. 8-E)
in Jackson Co. And, on 1 June 1831, Zachariah Nelson received a land patent
(Sec 8, Twp. 3-S, Rng. 4-E) in Jackson Co.
I am fairly confident that this John Johnson is "my" John Johnson. My reason
here is that both Sampson Haws and Zachariah Nelson had sons who married
daughters of John Johnson. Solomon Haws married Elizabeth Johnson prior to 1839.
I do not have that record: have never been able to find it. James S. Nelson
married Matilda Johnson on 22 Dec 1848 in De Kalb Co. AL. Elizabeth and
Matilda were older sisters of my G GF, Thomas Marion Johnson, who was born in
Jackson Co. AL in 1834. These persons all migrated to MO in 1840's and 1850's.
Might you be able to determine how close these three families lived to each
other? Were they all in the Paint Rock area?
Thank you again. Judy Johnson Erickson, TX
