Silvanus "Sill" Johnson

Harnett County Heritage Book

 

        Many Johnsons in eastern Harnett County are the descendants of Silvanus Johnson who died between September 13, 1763 and October 1763 and Elizabeth Carrell who died in 1769.  Sill may have been born in Lancaster County, Virginia.  A Sill Johnson acquired land in Prince Edward and Amelia Counties in Virginia.  His brother Richard Johnson and he acquired land in Johnston County, North Carolina in 1748.  John Carrell, brother of Elizabeth Carrell Johnson, deeded land on Swift Creek to Sill Johnson.  This acreage was part of a grant to John Carrell from the Earl of Granville in 1752.  In 1760, a petition was made to the county court for Sill Johnson to build a gristmill on White Oak Swamp.  In 1761, the State of North Carolina granted Sill Johnson 450 acres on the White Oak Swamp.  Sill granted 225 acres on the south side to Henry Johnson and 225 acres on the north side to Sill Johnson, Jr.  On September 13, 1763, Sill Johnson wrote his will leaving his wife Elizabeth Carrell Johnson the manor plantation and his son a reversional interest in his plantation.  Abasalon Johnson was to receive the remainder of sill's estate.  Sill must have died prior to October 19, 1763, because his widow and son Henry presented the will of Sill Johnson in court that date.  Henry Johnson exhibited in court an inventory of the Sill Johnson estate on July 16, 1765.



        Sill Johnson, Jr. was born before April 1744, and died before January 1, 1787.  He married Elizabeth (?) and located in Rowan County, NC.  Henry Johnson was born before April 1744, and died between October 11, 1807 and November 1807.  Henry married Sealy West, daughter of Robert West.  Benjamin, the Harnett County forebearer, was born after April 1744 and died after 1820.  He married Mary (?).  He left Johnston County to live in Wake County, but later settled in Cumberland County (later Harnett).  Absolon was born after April 1744, and located in Robeson County.

        Ben Johnson and his wife Mary sold 40 acres on the south side of Swift Creek to a Richard Apperson.  Later on February 17, 1775, Benjamin of Wake County deeded 150 acres in Johnston County on the north side of Swift Creek to Benjamin Clements of Wake County.  This tract of land earlier belonged to John Carrell and Sill Johnson.  Ben Johnson is found on records in Cumberland County, NC in 1801.  Three hundred acres on a branch of Black River were deeded by Benjamin Johnson, Sr. to Sill Johnson.  Sill Johnson and Benjamin Johnson show up on the same 1820 census of Cumberland County.  Benjamin sold land to Sill in 1831.  Benjamin's issues are Benjamin Johnson, Jr., who was born before 1775 and died after 1834 in Cumberland County, and Sill Johnson who was born about 1786.  Other than the 300 acres he acquired in 1801, he received 100 acres via grant on Panther Branch in Cumberland County from John Green.  Benjamin, Sr., later deeded other tracts of land to Sill in 1831.  Sill was twice married.  First, he married Edith (?) who died between the 1850 and 1860 census count.  A second wife Sarah (Sally) is listed as 64 years of age on the 1860 count.  Sill and Edith had six children. 

        Hugh A. Johnson was their first child being born on April 30, 1816., and dying between 1870-1873.  He married Angelina Barnes who was born on February 5, 1819, and died after 1894.  Angie was the daughter of David and Bethania Newsom Barnes.  Hugh's sister was born about 1831, married Lewis Bryant Barnes, born about 1815.  Angie and Lewis were siblings.  Lewis died before 1870.  Morrella Johnson, another sister of Hugh's, was born about 1820.  John Johnson, a brother to Hugh, was born 1829; Lucy Johnson was born in 1832 and died October 12, 1899.  She married Neil Barnes who was the son of John and Sarah McLeod Barnes.  Rufus and Lucy Johnson were both 17 on the 1850 census indicating that they were twin siblings of Hugh.

On this same 1850 census of Cumberland County listed Hugh Johnson as age 35 with real estate value of $200; Angelina was listed as age 29.  In the 1860 Harnett County census records, Hugh's real estate increased to $1600 and he had twelve living children residing in the Hugh A. Johnson dwelling.

        These children were Mary Johnson (November 15, 1841), Lewis (January 1843- he died before the next census), Louise E. "Lucy" (January 25, 1844), Elizabeth D. (August 20, 1845), William C. (October 14, 1846, civil Ann (April 8, 1848), David H. was born May 26, 1849 and died March, 1908.  "Hen" married Lena Weaver. Edy Winifred Johnson  (August 4, 1850), Benjamin Franklin (May 5, 1852- May 7, 1820) married Mary Alice Johns(t)on (August 4, 1857-April 5, 1938). She was the daughter of Amos Greene Johns(t)on and Mary Alice Sutton of Johnston County.  Sarah A. (January 14/1854), Martha M. (November 29, 1855), Thomas J. was born August 20, 1858 and married Effie Parrish, Hanna (March 6, 1859) married Robert L. Johns(t)on - brother of Mary Alice.  John A. (September 25, 1860 - September 26, 1813) married Mary Gregory.
