Between 1827-1845: William Johnson Jr. and his family originally lived at the mouth of Laurel Creek above Swiss. Later they moved to Loop Creek at a place later known as Robson. [Source: The Penick Papers, pg. 14]
1830 U.S. Federal Census Kanawha County, (West) Virginia Johnston, William 2 males under 5 yo (Lewis b. 1828, John Brown b. 1823) 1 male 5 & under 10 yo (Alexander b. 1819) 1 male 10 & under 15 yo (Nelson b. ca. 1815) 1 male 30 & under 40 yo (William Jr. b. 1793) 1 female under 5 yo (Amy b. 1825) 1 female 5 & under 10 yo (Mary b. 1820) 1 female 10 & under 15 yo (Huldah b. ca. 1818) 1 female 30 & under 40 yo (Nancy Ann Sims Johnson b. bet. 1791-1800) 1 female 70 & under 80 yo (Amy Nelson Johnson b. 1757)
"Amie Nelson Johnson lived among her children after coming to Loup Creek but her last days were at the home of her son William, whose home was near that of Mutt Ellis. This was very close to the cemetery known then as the Kelly grave yard but now called the Nuchils cemetery. This is a beautiful location for a cemetery. In a row in this cemetery is the grave of William and Nancy Simms Johnson, two children, and the mother Amie Nelson Johnson. William and Nancy died around 1845 during a typhoid fever epidemic. Afterwards, most of his family went to Kanawha County to an area called the Grape Vine, near Charleston." [Source: from the writings of Laura Blake, a local historian, quoted in e-mail dated May 26, 2001 from Terry W. Johnson.]
Note: There is a mistake in the above statement. William's wife Nancy did not die around 1845 during a typhoid fever epidemic. She was seen living with her son William in Kanawha County in 1860.
1840 U.S. Federal Census Fayette County, (West) Virginia Johnson, William Sr. (page 145) 2 males under 5 yo (William Hunter and Morris Houston) 1 male 5 & under 10 yo (Lewis) 1 male 15 & under 20 yo (John Brown) 1 male 20 & under 30 yo (Alexander) 1 male 40 & under 50 yo (William) 1 female under 5 yo (Nancy) 1 female 15 & under 20 yo (Amy) 1 female 20 & under 30 yo (Huldah) 1 female 30 & under 40 yo (Nancy Ann; should be listed as 40 & under 50 yo) 10 persons in household 2 persons engaged in agriculture
Note: William Johnson Jr. is not to be confused with the William W. S. Johnson listed on 1840 Fayette census page 162. William W. S. Johnson married Sarah McCoy and died in Grenbrier County in 1849. This Johnson family originally came from Botetourt County. David Fridley descends from that couple.
Burial: Nichols Cemetery on Loop Creek has also been seen as Nichols Hollow Cemetery, Robson.
