Notes
a. Note:   show that more children were born to this couple. There is a large gap between the birth of Edward abt. 1819 and Chap abt. 1827. It is not known when the Johnsons came to Kanawha County but after seeing them there in 1850 they are found in Nicholas County in 1860 to 1870. Oldest son Edward R. was seen in Fayette County in 1850. His father may have followed him after 1850 as the entire family (except Chap) were found together in 1860 in Nicholas. The area that Edward lived in Fayette County in 1850 was on the county line to Nicholas County and in the same area as Thomas lived in 1860 and 1870. This can be seen by comparing the names of the neighbors. The Sims who were living near the Johnsons in Fayette and Nicholas counties in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 census lived in Swiss, Nicholas County and just across the county line in Fayette County. They may not have moved from one census to the next; more likely is that the enumerator may have included families from the neighboring county. Note: Martin Sims married Susannah Johnson (b. abt. 1785 and daughter of William per marriage bond) in Greenbrier County in 1800. Is it possible since the Sims and the Johnsons lived in the same area that Martin Sims' wife Susannah was a sister of Thomas R. Johnson? Most likely not if the following turns out to be correct. Roger Johnson, a descendant of this line, sent for a copy of a partial list from the WV Archives of Nicholas County deaths for 1874 and found Thomas R. Johnson died Aug 31, 1874 of running ulcer age 39, parents Thomas and Elizabeth Johnson, informant Coleman Kerby son-in-law. Further research indicates that Coleman Kirby married Elizabeth H. Johnson 1 Dec 1838 in Albermarle County, Virginia. Coleman was born about 1808 making him about 66 years old at the time that he was an informant for this death. It is presently being assumed that age 39 for Thomas is incorrect and should be 89. As of 8 Nov 2007 Roger informed me that he is going to try to get a copy of the original death record to confirm the age. On 4 Feb 2008 Roger acquired certified death record given the information found in the death register: Thomas R. Johnson died at age 89 on 31 August 1874 in Nicholas County; cause of death being running ulcer. From Death Records 1853-1889 page (year) 1874.
