|Death: ||May 15, 1865|
Irvin W. Johnson was the grandson of Dr. William T. Johnson who died 1823 in Marengo County Alabama. Irvin's father died before 1840 and Irvin was raised by Dr. W.T.J.'s daughter, Frances Ann (Johnson) Ivens.
Irvin W. Johnson and Martha Roberts were married 20 January 1851 in Marengo County Marriage Records, Volume 2, Page 423.
Irvin Johnson and his wife Martha named a son William. He could have been named for William Roberts, father of Martha Roberts; but just as easily could have been named for Dr. William Johnson. They also named a daughter Frances Ann, obviously to honor Frances Ann Johnson Ivens, who was most certainly at least Irvin's surrogate Mother.
Children of Irvin W. Johnson & Martha Roberts:
1. George Washington Johnson
2. Frances Ann Johnson Perry
3. William Francilla Johnson
4. Virginia 'Jennie' Johnson
5. Irvin Wayne "Bush" Johnson

On April 5, 1862 Irvin W. Johnson enlisted in the Confederate 43rd Alabama Regiment, Company E as a private. He was age 30, married, planter, residence Morvin, Alabama.
Irvin W. Johnson's youngest son, Irvin Wayne "Bush" Johnson, was born in January of 1865.
