James William Johnson/ Elizabeth Cordell

James William Johnson/ Elizabeth Cordell

Posted: 1399208948000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson, Cordell ,Barnett, Cantrell
James William Johnson Sr. b. about 1849 Missouri married Elizabeth Cordell (last name spelling varies) b. 1846 Missouri . I am looking for info on James parents , I have found more than a few trees linking him to Isaac Denton Johnson b. about 1827 Tenn & Sarah Yandel ( Yannel & various spellings) b. about 1829 Tenn. This is not correct ,my husband & I have both done DNA ancestry test, he IS related to Isaac thru a Cantrell line .
James & Elizabeth are parents of Nancy Elizabeth (Johnson) Barnett , my great grandmother b.08/05/1873 Arkansas , I have done some looking & was told Isaac & Sarah had a James who died at 10yrs old (the info givin me by a person who has written 2 fairly recent books on Cantrell).
Any one have info for James William Johnson Sr. parents? ( I have him as Sr. because his sons death cert shows James William Johnson Jr. ) I haven't been at this long and still have lots of gaps but will be happy to share what little I think I know. Thank you ,Coleen

There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++

Do you have a date & place of death for James W. and Elizabeth [Cordell] Johnson [state]????

Need DOB + birthplace for James William Johnson Jr. [STATE]
WHERE & WHEN did James Jr. die???
WHO did James Jr. marry??
Need her 1st & last name + DOB + birthplace.......

NEED 1stnames + DOB's + birthplaces for all of James W. and Elizabeth [Cordell] Johnson' children.

Thanks thomasker2 for the info .
This is what I have so far some info is from 1880/ 1870 Census ,Missouri Death certificates, Family Search Document Records, and other families trees (which I don't rely on but use as a jumping off point) This family is from Phelps, Missouri ; Fulton, Arkansas; Oregon & Howell counties Missouri areas mainly. Hope this helps anyone working on this family & Any and ALL input is welcome. Coleen
