I am thrilled that you responded to my post. I made that about 1 1/2 years ago and am still receiving responses. It's unbelievable the amount of information I've been able to obtain - from people in Virginia, Florida, Colorado & Washington - all descendants of these Johnsons.
I'd be very interested to write to you directly. My email address is email@example.com
I know which branch you are speaking of. Rev Jacob had a son named Jehoida Pitt from which I descend. I quickly looked at some research related to what you've told me and see that Jacob Johnson b 1765, d 1807 had two daughters, Mary & Lydia. Mary married Phineas Nash Foster in 1822 who had one son - Charles Foster b Nov 25, 1836. He married Mary Hoagland of NJ and they had two children - Florence who married Dr. Frank Jenkins and Lily - died young. If this matches up (somewhat - you never know how much info you can trust), please contact me - I'm sure we can trade info - it's helped me tremendously over the past two years!!
By chance, are you within the local area? Meaning in the Wilkes-Barre area? I noticed your name mentioned PA - That would be wonderful if you were!!! Everyone I've met on line has been from out of state. I've got so many pictuers that my Grandmother left for me that have no name to them - I'd love to get that mystery figured out. Unfortunately, my Grandparents have all passed away. My Mother's maiden name was Marjorie Johnson - daughter of Priestly Revere Johnson and Dorothy Schmassman. Priestly was the son of Robert Johnson and Emma VanDuzer. Robert was the son of William Perry Johnson and Eliza Roderick. William was the son of Jehoida Pitt Johnson and Hannah Frazer Johnson. And Jehoida - the son of Rev Jacob Johnson and Mary Giddings.
I've got names, dates, birth and death information for most of the Johnsons related by the various branches of the family, but not much in the line of stories about who they were or what they did. I'd also like to share what I have with you - it always seems to help.
Please respond directly to me at the email address listed and I'll be sure to write back. Maybe we can exchange addresses at that time and send our info to each other.
Great to hear from you - Thank you very much!!!
