(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Henry H. Johnson Family

Henry H. Johnson Family

In the photo above, Henry H. Johnson (front row, last on right) is shown with several of his children.  At present, I can not identify them individually in the photo.  

Henry H. Johnson was the son of James Absalom Johnson Sr and Luvenia "Lucy" Brinkley.  He was born 18 October 1822 in Marion County, Mississippi.  He married first Eliza Ann Lott, the daughter of Joshua Samuel Lott and Georgia Roseann Barnes.  Their children were:  Amanda, Sarah Ann, Annie Eliza, Emily, Henry Alexander, Robert Henry and Absalom.  

Eliza Ann, Henry's first wife, died in 1860 at the young age of 30 years.  Family historians report that she died shortly after childbirth.  She was laid to rest in the Lott Family Cemetery in New Hope, Marion County, Mississippi.  

In 1866, Henry married Martha Ann Turnage, the daughter of William George and Milbry Turnage.  She was born 29 March 1852 in Pike County, Mississippi and died 06 August 1895 in Marion County.  Henry and Martha Ann had four children:  Julie Ann, Barbara Alice, William H. "Willie" and John B.  

The 1900 federal census, Marion County, Mississippi, shows Henry Johnson, age 77, was living alone and widowed.  Henry died 15 February 1810 at the age of 87.  He is buried in the Lott Family Cemetery in New Hope, Mississippi.  It is reported that both wives are buried alongside him, but I have been unable to confirm this information.
