I am researching the Isaac Sr. Johnson family from Hamilton Co, IL.
Isaac Sr. Johnson was born 1771-1781 in North Carolina. Isaac first appears in Washington Co, GA in 1805 where he applied for a land grand but did not succeed. Isaac next appears in Hamilton Co, IL where he was granted a land grant on 23 May 1826.
His first wife was Mary "Peggy" Jones born in GA as stated on his son, Moses Johnsons, 2nd marriage certificate.
Isaac Johnson married next in 1839 in Hamilton Co, IL to Mary Ann Reed Barker, widow of Samuel Barker. No children from his second marriage was listed in his Will.
The following 6 children was listed in Isaac's Will, Sarah Hall, Rebecca Henson, Stephen, Solomon, Moses, and Benjamin Johnson.
He might have had 2 other children that died before his will was written, Isaac Jr. Johnson and unknown daughter.
If you have any information on this family please email me. I appreciate your input and willing to share what information I have.
