Bio and Links
Bio Photo I cannot remember not being interested in my family's history.

It is important to preserve our family history and this is a great site for doing just that. One of the ways I preserve our history is adding a new marker in front of the old illegible tombstones and marking unmarked graves.

I am a member of Colonial Dames 17th Century , Daughters of the American Revolution, Daughters of the Confederacy, Henderson County NC Genealogical and Historical Society, and SC State Archives. I am also on the Board for Save the Light to save Morris Island Lighthouse

In 2001 I completed a book on Holston Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. The project started with my cousin, Margaret Metcalf Foster and I surveying the cemetery. After seeing how many graves were unmarked in the cemetery and knowing that many of these people were related to me, I decided to find out who they were. Working five years in five funeral homes, I was able to identify and mark 100 graves at Holston Creek Baptist Cemetery. When available, I added parents, spouse, and full birth and death dates to each person buried there in the cemetery book. Later, I entered all the names on Findagrave from this cemetery. As time permits, I am linking the people and adding more information about them. Since this is my project and I am related to many of the people buried here, I am not interested in transferring them. Thanks for understanding.

At the present time, I am doing a book on James and Ann Cole Johnson and their children all the way down to the present. It is the most time consuming project I have ever done. Please get in touch with me if you are a descendant and would like to be included in this book.

PLEASE do not use my photos without my permission.

Just doing some work on the McBrayer line and noticed that Corrie Allen Johnson, wife of Hugh Francis Johnson was the daughter of Robert W Allen and Jane McBrayer, and granddaughter of Andrew McBrayer and Sarah Johnson!

Johnson reunion
Hi Betty, your long lost Johnson cousin from South Carolina here, I was wondering if the reunion is happening this year, and what date?
