Early Johnsons of Robbinston

Classification: Query

I am interested in information about the early Johnsons in Robbinstown (Township/Plantation 4). From what I can tell, most of the later families were descended from four early settlers: Edmund/Edwin, Hezekiah, Job and John.

Edmund/Edwin has been said to be the son of John Johnson and Sarah Swift and was said to have had brothers by the names Hezekiah, Job and John. Are these four early settler this closely related?

It seems that they all were from Massachusetts as well.

I'd like to know:

1. Where these settlers were from
2. The ancestry of the settlers
3. The names of the children of the settlers.

My particular interest is Samuel Johnson b 1794 Robbinston. He married Dolly Wilder and later Amanda Forbes. He lived in Calais for a time. His death in 1881 was mentioned in the Bay Pilot newspaper of St Andrews. There was another Samuel Johnson who lived in Bayside, St Andrews who was said to have had a son Samuel. Are these two Samuel's related?

I'd like to hear from anyone who might be able to shed some light on these Johnsons.
