Surnames: Johnson/Edenfield
I have Samuel Duncan Johnson b. 12/1825-1832 (son of Duncan Johnson of Appling Co. GA) married Rhoda Edenfield b. abt 1845 daughter of George Washington Edenfield & Rebecca Fullwood. Rhoda and parents are living in and around Ware Co, GA 1850. She married Samuel Duncan Johnson abt 1861 after the death of his first wife Kezziah C Lee. I find S. D.Johnson and Rhoda Johnson in Baker Co. Fl in 1870 along with Andrew Johnson age 17, Thomas P Johnson age 15, Lavenia age 12 (these three are by the previous marriage to Keziah Lee). Then there are Lucinda age 7, Ellen age 2, and James W. age 2/12. Missing are Samuel Johnson b 1860 by previous marriage and Lemuel Bartow Johnson born 1862. I have searched the 1880 census for these people and only found Andrew, Lavenia, and Thomas living in Pierce Co, GA. Andrew age 25 was head of household and single. I have been unable to find Samuel Duncan or Rhoda nor have I found the children in the 1880 census.I feel that because Lemuel, Lucinda, Ellen, and James W would be young enough in 1880 to still be at home, then perhaps the surname was either misrecorded or unreadable on the 1880 census. Lemuel appeared in the 1900, 1910, 1920 census in Pierce Co. Ga.

So if anyone has information on this family I would certainly appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance,

I have discovered that Samuel Duncan Johnson was in Pierce Co GA in 1902-1904 ref Civil War Pension Records, but still have not located Samuel and his 2nd wife Rhoda Edenfield and her children between 1870 and 1900. Last record shows Baker Co FL in 1870.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
