Thanks for your reply. my William Johnson was born in Va, however he moved to NC and that is where he met his wife Nancy Hill. She was born in NC, I believe it was Chatham. Anyway, I know there was a Thomas Johnson in Wilkes also, not sure if is yours or not? Your other surnames don't show up in my tree so if these two Johnson families are related i don't see the connection either. If I run accross anything I will get back to you. Have any of your Johnson family had DNA test done? Mine has and he is under Michael Warren Johnson on Ancestry and he also is on the FTDNA web site. We have matches but I havn't been able to contact his matches as of yet. Good luck with your research...Johnson's is a hard line to follow!
