Subject: [UPPER-CANADA] JOHNSON, George
Date: Sat, 21 Jun 2008 11:58:32 -0500
In going over the Assessment Rolls I noticed that a George Johnson was on the farm in N. Plantagenet Twp. near Pendleton that Francis Johnston bought on Oct. 20, 1832. It was Concession 9, Lot S.1/2-21. From the map that I have it appears that the NW part of the town of Pendleton is on the SE corner of what was Francis' farm land. Does anyone have any information on this George Johnson? I'm wondering if his surname was miss-spelled. Could he have been George Johnston and kin to Francis?
We've had Y-DNA tests done on male descendants of Francis "Frank" Johnston, b. 1805 in Ireland, Robert "Red Robin" Johnston, b. 1808 in Ireland, and Archibald "Archie" Johnston, b. 1815 in Ireland. All male descendants tested as exact matches for the 37-markers test. We feel that this verifies a rather vague bit of oral family history which indicated that they were brothers.
Their farms were located at:
Francis: Concession 9, Lot S.1/2-21 (same as George)
Robert: Concession 7, Lot N.1/2-23
Archibald: Concession 7, Lot S.1/2-23
Assessment Rolls in 1848, '49, & '50 have a George Johnson in S. Plantagenet Twp. on 10 acres in Concession 20, Lot 1.
Does anyone know if these 2 George Johnsons are the same person? Does anyone have any information on the second George Johnson? Any information will be much appreciated.
