THE CALLOWAYS. Among the Kentucky pioneers was Col. Richard Calloway[18]. Two of his daughters, Betsy and Fanny, were captured with Jemima, Boone's second daughter, in a boat at Boonesborough, Ky., on the 17th of July, 1776. They were recovered unharmed soon afterwards;[19] and in the following August Betsy was married to Samuel Henderson, one of the rescuing party. [20] Jemima Boone afterwards married Flanders Calloway, a son of Colonel Calloway. [21] It was this Colonel Calloway who accused Boone of having voluntarily surrendered 26 of his men at the Salt Licks; that when a prisoner at Detroit he had engaged with Gov. Hamilton to surrender Boonesborough, and that he had attempted to weaken the garrison at Boonesborough before its attack by the Indians by withdrawing men and officers, etc.;[22] but Boone was not only honorably acquitted, but promoted from a captaincy to that of major. Related to this Colonel Calloway was Elijah Calloway, son of Thomas Calloway of Virginia, who "did much for the good of society and was a soldier at Norfolk, Va., in the War of 1812."[23]

John Calloway represented Ashe county in the House in 1800, and in the Senate in 1807, 1808,1809; and Elijah Calloway was in the House from 1813 to 1817, and in the Senate in 1818 and 1818, and 1819. One of these men is said to have walked to Raleigh, supporting himself on the way by shooting game, and in this way saved enough to build a brick house with glass windows, the first in Ashe, near what is now Obid. He was turned out of the Bear creek Baptist church because he had thus proven himself to be a rich man; and the Bible said no rich man could enter the kingdom of heaven. The ehureh in which he was tried was of logs, but the accused sat defiantly during the 'trial in a splint-bottomed chair, which he gave to Mrs. Sarah Miller of that locality. This may have been Thomas Calloway, whose grave is at Obid, marked with a long, slender stone which had marked one of the camping places of Daniel Boone. http://www.newrivernotes.com/nc/wnc4.htm

Notes: The First Peter Massie has died and this is not his deed
In the mid-1740s, at about age 30, Gideon Johnson married the mother of all his children, (Nancy) Ursula Allen/Allin (Feb. 16, 1728-c. 1807), the daughter of his Hanover Co. neighbors William and Mary Ann Owen Allin and granddaughter of Thomas Owen of Williamsburg, the colonial capital. Allen became a longstanding family given name. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Ursula Allin, the wife of Gideon Johnson Sr., had a sister Mary Allin who married a possible relation named William Allen and moved to Brunswick and Greensville Co. in southern Virginia.

A professional Maury Co. genealogist said those Allens 3 were the parents of Patsy Allen Mangrum; an Allen son, Hamlin, moved to Maury Co., and his daughter Eliza married yet a fourth child of Benjamin and Mary Johnson Davis. A fourth Mangrum child married still another of the grandsons of William Allen Johnson.

notes Peter Massey grandfather of Margery and Gideon Johnson is now of age) from Mary Holland she also notes the Following: From the Record Book Belonging to the Monthly Meeting of Friends, Henrico County beginning from the year 1699 to the year 1757 inclusive:
Gideon Johnson is shown as a witness in Quaker records by 1739, adding credibility to his assigned birth in 1717 in the portion of New Kent Co. that became Hanover four years later.
.

about 1742 Some researchers speculate that he first married a Goodloe, a descendant of George Goodloe of Middlesex Co., VA, who died young.



William Allen Johnson (Dec. 27, 1749-Feb. 8, 1830) married on March 4, 1773 to Sarah McLaren, the daughter of Daniel McLaren of Dan River, Guilford, Rockingham and later Bedford Co., TN. Sarah McLaren Johnson (Jan. 25, 1756-Sept. 2, 1835) served as a principal witness for her brother-in-law Abner when he applied for his Revolutionary War pension.

William Allen Johnson and his family moved to Middle Tennessee around 1810, after his father's death, to join his brother Abner Johnson and sister Ursula Johnson Pillow. They likely settled first in Rutherford Co. before moving south to the Fountain Creek neighborhood of Maury Co. by about 1812. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm


Like his father, William Allen Johnson was a small-scale slaveholder. On the 1823 tax rolls, he listed three slaves to help him farm 272 acres on Fountain Creek. His eldest known son Alexander Johnson also listed three slaves for a smaller farm of 93.5 acres.

Alexander Johnson (April 14, 1782, Rockingham-Feb. 7, 1857, Maury) married Mary Jessaline "Polly" Ballanfant, the daughter of Frenchman Jean and Louisa "Lucy" Yeoman Ballanfant, on Aug. 6, 1805 in Rockingham Co. Alexander Johnson served several terms on the Maury Co. administrative court. With the Pillows, Alexander Johnson was among the leading Democrats in Maury County in the 1840s and often chaired political meetings in support of James Knox Polk, a neighbor, governor and finally the U.S. President.

Son John Johnson (1783-after 1850, Maury Co., TN) married first Elizabeth Arnold and fathered nine children over at least 30 years before the couple divorced. He then remarried to Mary Beaver on Jan. 18, 1843 in Maury Co.

Son William Allen Johnson Jr. (1789-1852, McNairy Co., TN), a Maury Co. constable and military officer, married Mary Griffin. His campaign against Nimrod Porter for Maury Co. sheriff is included elsewhere in this manuscript.

The eldest known child, Celia Johnson (Oct. 25, 1776, Guilford, NC), married neighbor John Sanders before 1796 in Rockingham Co. They had eight children who came to Maury Co.: Mary Sanders "Polly Sanders " (m. James P. Kennedy), Alexander McClaren Sanders, William Johnson Sanders, Duke Sanders, Sarah McClaren Sanders, James Sanders and likely Joseph Sanders. John's brother William Sanders married another of the Bellanfant daughters, Elizabeth Bellanfant, and moved to neighboring Giles Co., TN.

The final known child of William and Sarah -- Mary (March 31, 1784, Rockingham-March 25, 1859, Maury) -- married Benjamin Davis (July 28, 1778, VA-Nov. 22,1845, Maury) and had at least nine children who came to Maury. Three married children of Isham and Martha "Patsy" Allen Mangrum, originally from Greensville Co., VA - who were cousins, too, even though the branches of the family had been separated for more than two decades.

William Allen Johnson and Sarah McClaren Johnson are buried in Johnson-Amis Cemetery in front of the Culleoka, TN post office in Maury Co. Among the 11 children of son Alexander was Louisa Yeoman Johnson who married Lewis Amis on July 15, 1830. The Amis couple and five of their seven children lie in the same cemetery. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
(Mary) Ursula Johnson (c. 1752, Nottoway Parish, Amelia Co., VA- 1822 or after 1830, Maury Co.) married John Pillow, also of Amelia Co., around 1770 when the Dan River valley was still part of Rowan Co. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

The Pillows decided to move to Nashville in 1788.

May 23, 1752 Gideon Johnson lived in Nottoway Parish when he bought from Samuel Goode 449 acres along Osborn's Branch on the "lower side" of Saylor's Creek The witnesses were William Walker and Warren Walker http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Most of the children were born in Nottoway Parish of Amelia or in neighboring Prince Edward and Lunenburg counties where Gideon owned properties that, like his father, exceeded 1,000 acres.

Gideon Johnson lived in Nottoway Parish on May 23, 1752 when he bought from Samuel Goode 449 acres along Osborn's Branch on the "lower side" of Saylor's Creek - the future site of a Civil War battle - that included a Massie cousin among its neighbors. The witnesses were William Walker and Warren Walker, cousins of Gideon's wife Ursula allin, and Charles Johnson, Gideon Johnson 's cousin. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Researchers Notes : From Mary Holland: This is Gideon Johnson Sr. as Gideon Jr. was not born till 1754 and was only 3 in 1757......Gideon Jr. is the one that moved to Williamson Co. I find it VERY VERY interesting that he is so involved with the lands of these other Johnson names.

I have aschildren of Benjamin Johnson:

David Johnson;

GIDEON Johnson (MINE);

Micah Johnson;

Nathaniel Johnson;

Squire Johnson;

Robert Johnson

Jesse Johnson; and

Ashley Johnson

Margaret Johnson...

guess Ashley could be a guys name too.

The Jesse Johnson is definitely a brother of Gideon....don't know about the Charles unless he is a son of one of the brothers.

Will keep looking through my stuff when we get back form Birmingham later today.

LOve Mary


My Notes a Micjah Johnson moved to Smith-Irvine River after the Rev. War. His names is recorded as Michael Johnson in land deeds info Franklin Co formed from Henry Co. Va.

1764 Nov 3 Gideon Johnson of Rowan Co. NC sold to Col Thomas Tabb of Amelia Co., 249 acres in P.E. on lower side of Saylor Creek bounded by Osborns Branch if Philip Good's line, Peter Bland, Shearwood Massie, Samuel Good. Witnesses to deed were Ashley Johnson, Charles Hudspeth, John Johnson Jr. (Abstracts of Prince Edward County) From Brenda BAO44@aol.com

Land records indicate the move occurred by 1764 because Gideon Johnson is shown as a resident of Rowan Co., NC on Nov. 3 1764 when he sold his home place of 249 acres on Saylor's Creek to Col. Thomas Tabb of Amelia Ashley Johnson and John Johnson Jr. as witnesses. (A deed disposing of the Lunenberg Co. land has not been located.) http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Researcher Notes: Samuel Perry 1782 Henry Co. Tithes near William Johnson 2 places away from William Johnson who had Hudson Johnson in his Tithes in 1776-1779 era

Researcher Notes: 1792 Aug 13 Samuel Perry is a Grand Jury in Patrick Co:
Researcher Notes: Baker De Graffenried: This family is married to the Gideon Johnson families of who start out as Benjamin Johnson married to ? Massie in Henrico Co Quaker Records to Saylors Creek in Amelia Co Va to Granville Co NC, Rowan and Surry Co NC and lands end up in Rockingham Co. NC: Of Note is the De Graffenreid family has its start on the Appottomax River.

Gideon Johnson was surrounded by family on both sides in the Dan River valley, including deGraffenreids and Vasses from Polly's lines. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

In Rowan Co. in 1765, Gideon Johnson received an original land grant six miles due west of Wentworth, NC on the south side of the Dan River. That year, daughter Elizabeth Johnson married James Wray. And on March 19, 1765, he bought 250 acres on the south side of the Dan River from Peter and Agnes Wilson Perkins of Pittsylvania Co., VA for 120 pounds of English money. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

1765 in Rowan Co Elizabeth Johnson likely the eldest child of Gideon Johnson and Ursula, married James Ray or Wray in 1765 in Rowan Co. with her father Gideon Johnson Sr. giving consent. Wray likely had been related to the family of the same name associated with the Johnsons in Amelia and Prince Edward Cos. The Wrays lived near her father and brothers in Guilford Co., NC in the late 1700s. Wray died in 1806.

The Wrays had seven children: Sarah Wray (m. Jean or John Bellanfant), Ursula Wray, Jane Wray, Parson Wray, Payton Wray, Pleasant Wray and William Johnson Wray.

Sarah or Sally Wray married Bellanfant, a Frenchman who reputedly came to America with the Marquis Lafayette's troops during the Revolution, just after his first wife Louisa "Lucy" Yeoman died while giving birth at sea on the way home from visiting his parents in France, according to a longstanding, but possibly far-fetched family story. Bellanfant lived in the Dan River valley and had real estate transactions with the Johnsons in the 1790s.

Sally Wray became the stepmother of seven children, including twins, all under age 12, and Jean almost immediately died -- before May 1802 -- while fighting a fire in a foundry or blacksmith shop. The eldest child, twin Mary Jessaline Bellanfant, married Alexander Johnson, the son of William Johnson and Sally's cousin. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
(October 1765-Feb. 18, 1838) Nancy Johnson married Revolutionary War veteran James Cotton on Dec. 20, 1786 in Rockingham. The couple had settled in Maury Co. with many of the Pillows by 1808. James Cotton died in McNairy Co., TN, and his widow then moved to Jackson Co., AL where she died after 1848.

They had five children: Peter Johnson Cotton (m. Lavinia Tucker); Mary Cotton (m. John McCartney); Martha Cotton (m. John C. Ashworth and Samuel Boulds Barron); Tabitha Allin Cotton (m. William Henry Lewis); and Charles K. Cotton (m. Ruth Elizabeth Mahan). One of the Barron children fought in the Battle of Wilson's Creek, just a couple of miles from his cousins' Missouri homes. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

1765 abt: Born Nancy Johnson Guilford Co NC married Rev. veteran, James Cotten,. Nancy Johnsons parents, Gideon Johnson and Ursula Allin had migrated to NC from the southwestern corner of Amelia Co. James Cotton was born about 1765, also reportedly in Guilford Co., http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Researchers Notes: Guilford CO formed in 1770 from Orange and Rowan Co. NC . So Nancy Johnson was born in Rowan Co. NC This Gideon Johnston lands will go intp Guilford Co and into Rockingham Co. NC when it forms

Resaerchers Notes: While I am no kin of the Cotten line, I have written somewhat extensively about Cotten's late 17th and early 18th century Landing at South Quay, in now Southampton County. My ancestor and most of his neighbors traded
through that tiny port on the River. In fact, my Thomas Drake (c1675-1758) and his brother Richard Drake and several of their grown sons and neighbors signed a petition in 1722 asking that the British govt. move the customs house to near Cotten's in order that they not have to load there for down-river trade, then unload . . .
From Paul Drake

1765 Era married is JOHN PILLOW was born 1745 ERA in Amelia Co., VA. He moved with the Gideon Johnson family to Rowan Co., NC, in 1765 and he married Ursula Johnson, daughter of Gideon Johnson. In 1775, the farm became a part of GUILFORD Co. In 1779, JOHN PILLOW bought a farm on Whetstone Creek. In 1785, his farm was in Rockingham Co.

Peter Benjamin Johnson (1766-1855, Old Springville, Henry Co., TN) fought in the Revolution and married Nancy Hubbard, daughter of William Hubbard. Peter Benjamin Johnson is found in Stewart County, TN in 1820 with his wife, sons Abner Johnson and William Hubbard Johnson and five daughters. Peter Benjamin Johnson had migrated north of Nashville with his Hubbard in-laws.
Peter Benjamin Johnson was a veterinarian or "horse doctor," and on a frontier that had few physicians, Nancy earned a reputation as an "herb doctor."

Peter Benjamin Johnson and Nancy eventually had 10 children:

Abner Johnson;

Joicey Johnson (m. John Leland Hagler);

William Hubbard Johnson;

Milbury Johnson or "Millie Johnson " (m. Horatio Nelson Marberry);

Mary Johnson (m. William Kinkead);

Jesse Johnson of Amelia County
Jesse Johnson is a brother to Gideon Johnson Sr. per research of Mary Holland
Rowan Co., NC records show Gideon Johnson witnessed a land deed from Perkins to Joel Warren, a distant relative of Ursula Allin Johnson, for 125 pounds VA money to sell 250 acres on the south side of the Dan River on the same day that Gideon Johnson bought his farm. Gideon Johnson's neighbors were James Gates and James Presnell of Orange Co., NC, who also bought land from Peter and Agnes Perkins in 1768. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

(Sept. 31, 1774-Feb. 26, 1830, Maury) Gideon Pillow Sr. who married Annie Payne (Feb. 20, 1777-April 10, 1864);

Not only did they become wealthy, but Gideon Pillow and Anne Payne Pillow, who are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Columbia, TN, were parents to one of the most controversial American military commanders of the era -- Gideon Johnson Pillow Jr., who served as a major general in the Mexican-American War and brigadier general for the Confederacy.

Aspersions on Gen. Pillow's competence and courage in the Mexican War led to a major political feud because he was a close friend and political ally of President James Knox Polk http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
(1775-1828, Logan Co., KY) Mordecai Pillow married Mary Baker Johnson, his cousin; http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
July 1776 Before his marriage, though, Gideon Johnson Jr. served as a private in July 1776 under Capt. John Armstrong of Surry Co., NC, and Lt. Joseph Tate of Guilford Co., NC. Armstrong's company joined the 2nd Regiment of the Continental Line at Salisbury, NC shortly after Gideon enlisted. He was discharged by then-Col. Alexander Martin, the later governor of North Carolina who appointed Gideon Johnson and brother Abner Johnson as his bodyguards http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
1776-1783 ERA All five sons of Gideon Johnson Sr’s served the colonial cause in the Revolutionary War. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

1776-1783 ERA Abner Johnson is said to have been wounded at the tide-turning battle of Guilford (N.C.) Courthouse although he made no such claim when he applied for a war pension. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

(Feb. 19, 1777-Jan. 13, 1867, Rutherford Co.) Mary Pillow married Hartwell Miles; and Barbary (a) (possibly married a Johnson). http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
October 1777, while living in the Dan River valley, Abner Johnson volunteered for militia service under his neighbor, Capt. John Nelson; if not enough volunteered, then able-bodied men were drafted to fill out the unit. Capt. Nelson's company was organized under Col. Paseley's regiment with Charles Hughes as lieutenant, Allen Walker as sergeant and George Parks and Abner as ensigns. Col. Paseley's regiment from Guilford Co. was joined with Col. Saunders' regiment from Granville County under the command of Gen. Rutherford.

The troops reported to Guilford Court House and then marched to SC through Salisbury and Charlotte, NC and Camden, SC. The destination was Smoky Camp near the town of Purrysburgh, according to Abner's pension papers. The troops ranged across the Black Swamp and as far as Augusta and Savannah in Georgia. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

(1778-after 1860, Maury) Elizabeth Ann Pillow married William Murray and Thomas Latchin Due; http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
Around May 10, 1778, Abner Johnson was discharged, and he made his way back to the Dan River settlement with his neighbor, Capt. Nelson. In a second stint of duty, Abner Johnson was called up for three months as a bodyguard against British and Tory attacks for "Governor Martin," who lived in the same county and was traveling to Nutbush for a meeting of the state legislature. However, a quorum of legislators failed to attend.

Finally, he again was called to accompany Alexander Martin to "Marcurian Tavern" for another session of the legislature, but again sufficient members failed to gather.

(The royal governor of North Carolina at the time was Josiah Martin. Abner Johnson, however, accompanied Alexander Martin of Guilford Co., who was only a member of the NC legislature. Alexander later became governor of North Carolina after statehood, and Abner referred to him as governor out of habit and respect in the pension papers.)

Abner Johnson 's pension affidavit lists no other action except in "scouting parties" when the neighbors "were engaged against the Tories," probably simply other neighbors or small troop units sympathetic to the British.

He produced the testimony of David Dobbins, his brother Gideon Johnson and sister-in-law Sarah Johnson (Mrs. William), but only that of Sarah has survived. In general she confirmed that the entire family lived in households on the Dan River and Abner Johnson was absent for long periods to fight in the Revolution. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
Nov. 18, 1779 Gideon Johnson Jr. (Nov. 7, 1754-Nov. 1, 1843) was married Nov. 18, 1779 to Mary "Polly" Baker de Graffenreid (Sept. 3, 1764-Jan. 7, 1823), a native of Lunenberg Co. Polly Baker de Graffenreid was a descendant of a Swiss "count" who earned his title through land development and founded the colonial North Carolina capital of New Bern in 1711. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
(1780-after 1836, Nashville) Ursula Pillow married Capt. William Rains; http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
Sarah Johnson (Oct. 9, 1780-1857/8, Weakley Co., TN) married William Hubbard; Born to Gideon Johnson and Polly, all in Rockingham Co. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

May 1780. Gideon Johnson Sr. had entered 250 acres of new land on the north side of Dan River - across the water from his original holdings -- in May 1780. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm


March 15, 1781 ERA Stories of service in the Revolution were often subject to embellishment, and the tale persists that Abner Johnson fought and was wounded at the Battle of Guilford Court House on March 15, 1781 despite no references in his pension papers. It is difficult to imagine that one of the bloodiest encounters of the Revolution occurred almost in his back yard and he didn't participate despite three tours of duty. Then again, the NC militia embarrassed itself at Guilford Court House, and he may have omitted the service from his official papers.

On March 15, 1781 about 2,000 men of British Gen. Cornwallis bore down on the Guilford Co. Courthouse near New Garden (NC) and the American forces under Gen. Nathanael Greene. The NC militia, the first line of defense, fired prematurely, panicked and then fled into nearby woods, exposing the VA militia. The reasons for the hasty retreat are unknown: no one from the North Carolina troops was wounded or killed in the initial action.

Like many military incidents, the British victory at Guilford Court House, however, really became a defeat, thanks to the heavy losses.

When the gunsmoke cleared, the Americans had withdrawn to the north - survivors of "one of the bloodiest (battles) of the war," says Page Smith, a historian of the Revolution and author of A New Era Now Begins. While the British took the courthouse area (now the site of Greensboro), their casualties came to 554, or one than one fourth of Cornwallis' troops. "It was a devastating setback," says Smith, and demonstrated that the American Continental Line (not the militia) could hold its own against British regulars.

Former British Prime Minister William Pitt later described the Battle of Guilford Court House as "the precursor of ruin to British supremacy in the South." The conflict would surge north over the next two years before Cornwallis surrendered to the Americans at Yorktown, VA. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm
Abner Johnson 's wounds would have occurred in the disarray after the militia retreat. The Continental Line regulars suffered 144 dead or wounded while the militia men posted 83 wounded. The Americans, however, listed 1,084 missing or deserted, with 552 from the North Carolina militia. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

(March 25, 1781-July 20, 1854) John Pillow who married Mary Fitzpatrick and moved to Giles Co., TN; http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mochrist/johnsonbymcconnell.htm

Abner Johnson and Nancy Brackett were married on March 14, 1783. No traces have been found on the ancestry of Nancy; she does not appear to have been the Nancy Brackett who was born around 1761 (the same age) to Thomas and Judith Brackett of Amelia Co.However, she may have been the daughter of Thomas' son Benjamin, who moved to that part of NC.
