Birth: Sep. 26, 1852
Tyrrell County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1916
Tyrrell County
North Carolina, USA

Parents: James Johnson and Mary Sawyer.

James Johnson m. Mary Sawyer 5 Sept. 1845 in Tyrrell Co., North Carolina.

1870 U.S. Census for Alligator Twp, Tyrrell Co., NC:
Alexander, Joshua M 55 yrs, b. 1815 NC; farmer
Wife Mary, F 45 yrs, b. 1825 NC
Johnson, James, M 14 yrs, b. 1856 NC
Johnson, William, M 9 yrs, b. 1861 NC
Johnson, Lemuel, M 5 yrs, b. 1865 NC

Think Mary remarried and the Johnson boys were from her previous marriage and are Emma's brothers. Mary Johnson m. Joshua Alexander in May 1870.

Living next door to the Alexanders is James Allcox, married in Oct. 1870 to Emorlinza. James Allcox is 20 and Emorlinza is 18. This is our "Emma". It appears that James & Emma are living next door to her mother and step-father and her brothers. James Allcox was farming.

Note: Also living near these families were Thomas Johnson, 25 yrs w/his family and James Alexander, 25 yrs w/his family. Is Thomas Emma's brother and James her future husband?

1880 U.S. Census for Alligator Twp, Tyrrell Co., NC:
James Allcox M 30 yrs, b. 1850 NC; farmer
Wife Emma Allcox F 28 yrs, b. 1852 NC
Son William Allcox M 10 yrs, b. 1870 NC
Son Samuel T. Allcox M 7 yrs, b. 1873 NC

Brother-in-law William Johnson M 17 yrs, b. 1863 NC
Brother-in-law Lemuel L. Johnson M 13 yrs, b. 1867 NC

L'l Wm and Emma's brothers, Wm & Lemuel Johnson were farm hands. Wonder where Daniel Willie Alcox is?

1900 U.S. Census for Alligator Township, Tyrrell Co., North Carolina:

Dau Alice M Alexander F 2 yrs, b. May 1898 NC
Son-in-law Daniel W Alcox M 31 yrs, b. Aug. 1869 NC, single

James m. Emma ca 1885. Emma was the mother of 15 children, 8 of whom were living.

Note: Daniel was not James "son-in-law" but rather his "step-son". On the actual census, "in-law" was scratched off and "s-son" added but the transcriber missed this. He was Emma's son from a previous marriage.

Note: The informant on her DC was W.J. Alexander.
