Unfortunatly I realize too late I should never make a comment even with
saying guessing ...Due to my thoughts that the Clement Johnson d 1821
was the son of Leonard Johnson not his brother, that was my reason for
saying that possibley the m to Sally Nolin belonged to...the Clement
Johnson found in Washington Co. I have no proof any more then the
rest of the researchers. the following will give you my reasons for
thinking the Clement Johnson who d 1821 was the son of Leonard rather
then his brother.
As to the marriage of Clement Johnson and Sarah Nolin The following is
where I found the listing: (Own the book)
Nelson Co. Genealogistts, MARRIAGE, BOND & CONSENT' BOOK OF NELSON COL
1801-1816 p 77
"Johnson, Clement & Nolin, Sally, Bond: 5 May 1815, married: 8 May 1815
Signed bond: Joseph Nolin
Consent filed with Bond: Elizabeth Nolin, MOther of Sally
Wittness to consent: Joseph Nolin, John J. Nolin
Married by S. T. Badin, from marriage Register"
(Badin was a Caholic Priest, My comment)
THIS IS A NELSON CO MARRIAGE !!
As I have to go into DAR Hdqts (& genealogical Lib) all this week due
to the National Convention etc.. I intend tomorrow to look up the 1820
KY census and find the Clement Johnson listed in Nelson Co. The copy of
the Nelson Co. Ky 1820 census I have is by Rowene Lawson.
p 20 of her book NELSON CO, KY 1810-1840 CENSUSES, p 20 is the following:
Johnson, Clement 1---?? //--1- - -
I want to see if I can figure out what those ?? might be. Probably not
but sure will look.
My thinking and stewing .. is the inventory 1821 of Clement Johnson
Nelson Co. KY that has Leonard Johnson as the administrator. Estate of
$100. Wondering if Clement was married why Leonard would be the
administrator of the inventory rather then the wife. However if you
believe the 1820 census read out. then the wife was in the age group of
16-26. Maybe too young to be an administrator . but being married would
have made her " of age" so to speak.
I do not know who the Clement Johnson who married Sally Nollin was. I
have no proof of any kind. Maybe that 1820 census for Nelson Co. will
give a bit of a story. If there was an older male (over 45) then ??
I disagree it seems with everyone else about the Clement Johnson who d
1821. I have the microfilm of the Washington and Nelson Cos. yearly
tax lists up to 1850.
I will not bore you with repeats as I have placed this on the St. Mary's
page several times. They also are listed in Jerry's email . A
Clement lst appears with Leonard Johnson and his other proven sons in
1816. They are all repeated in the same company (militia) together on
Pottinger's Creek 1816, 17, 18 & 20 Tax list for Nelson Co. The 1819
only has two Johnsons listed. Am guessing part of this list has been
lost as there are numerous Johnsons in Nelson Co. KY. They can be
partially separated due to the water course they live on and the company
they belong to.
As the inventory for a Clement Johnson in 1821 has Leonard Johnson as
the administrator and as a Clement Johnson does not appear in any of
the tax list of Nelson Co after 1820..To me it appears that this
Clement Johnson was the son of Leonard Johnson. . At present I believe
that the Clement Johnson who d 1821 was the son of Leonard Johnson
not... his brother Clement However shall see what the 1820 census
shows. However I certainly could be incorrect.
Jerry's email also has what I gave on the tax lists in Washington Co.
So it seems we have a Clement Johnson in both Washington and Nelson Co
for the years of 1809 and 1816.
