Isaac Johnson, Sr
Birth: 1771
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1845
Hamilton County
Illinois, USA

Isaac Johnson is my great-great-great-grandfather

Isaac Johnson Sr. parents are unknown at this time. I've been searching for 7 years. I have a lot of leads but still not proven.

Isaac was born between 1771-1779 by the census records. Isaac's will was written 28 Aug 1843 and probated 10 Jan 1846 in Hamilton Co, Illinois. He could have died in 1845.

Isaac's son, Moses Johnson, listed his parents on his marriage certificate as; Isaac Johnson born in NC and his mother's name as Mary "Polly" Jones born in Washington Co, GA
The last 3 of Isaac's children was born in GA, Moses, Rebecca, and Benjamin J Johnson.

Isaac's wife, Mary "Polly" Jones Johnson born about 1770 in GA died between 1830-1838 in Hamilton Co, IL.

Isaac married a widow Mary Ann Reed Barker 22 March 1839 in Hamilton Co, Illinois. She was much younger than Isaac and her first marriage was to Samuel Barker 8 March 1833 in Hamilton Co, IL. No childen has been found.

Children of Isaac Johnson and Mary Jones:
1. Isaac Johnson Jr. born between 1800-1809
Isaac Johnson Jr. was on the 1830 census but not the 1840. Since Isaac Jr. isn't mentioned in Isaac Sr. will, written in 1843, he might have died before 1840.

3. Daughter Johnson 1800 married Thomas Jefferson Hanks 30 Oct 1826
Note: Isaac Johnson Jr. and Unknown Daughter Johnson Hanks are not listed in Isaac Johnson Sr. Will

The following children are listed in Isaac's Will:

2. Solomon Johnson 1798-
2nd wife Eliza Jane Nations 26 Aug 1866 in Hamilton Co, IL
4. Stephen Johnson
5. Sarah Johnson married unknown Hall before 1843
6. Moses Johnson 1811- died after 1880
7. Rebecca Johnson 1813 GA
Rebecca Johnson married William Henson 16 Aug 1831
8. Benjamin J. Johnson 1814-

If anyone has any information to share on this family please contact me.

Please note several family trees have Isaac Johnson Sr. listed as the son of Robert Johnson. This has not been proven.
