After many years of researching this family of Johnson, I had some what of a revelation yesterday. Nowhere on this site or any of the Horry County SC historical site is there a reference to Carmi being the son of Meshac b.1795 and Rebecca Rhea b.1805 Johnson. I inherited this information from my brother, and I have always assumed that Meshac's children were the following:
A. H. Johnson b.1821
Allis Johnson b.1823
Helon Johnson b.1826
Eliza Johnson b.1826 this one is questioned by me**date??
Light Johnson b.1828
Carmi Johnson b.1829 m. Sara Ann Graham b. 1835
Joseph Johnson b.1833
Isabella Johnson b.1834
Mishac M. Johnson b.1838
S.A. Johnson b.1840
Harmon Johnson b.1842
William F. Johnson b. 1844
James Harley Johnson b.1848

All of these children appear on different census records of the time in Horry County. All but Carmi. I am thinking now that maybe he was a nephew of Meshac. Maybe Matthew Johnson's son? Also, that is a lot of children, and if we have Meshac's age correct. He was 53 and Rebecca was 43 when their last child was born. I guess that was common then.

I am also looking for any information on the Rhea family. There are some Rhea, Rae and Rays' in Horry around that time. Most of them black, so not sure if that is correct family.
