109 1910 Harnett Co., NC census lists John W. Stephenson, Joseph Stephenson and their families.

Living with John W. is his mother, Landis Stephenson, age 75. The 1870 Harnett Co. census shows S. D. Stephens with wife Landis (or something that looks like Landis) age 34, so she's likely the same person. (It also shows a "Sarah", age 74, probably the mother of S. D) The census taker apparently made a mistake in listing the name as "Stephens".

A search for a "Sarah Stephenson" in the 1850 census finds only one. It finds her in Cumberland Co. (Harnett Co. was created out of Cumberland in 1855) and it shows the following:

Josiah Stephenson, age 56
Sarah, age 54
Silas D., age 20
Ramsey (?) D., age 16 (male)
Adaline, age 12 (female)

Silas D. is likely S.D. The dates work out: Silas D. was about 20 in the 1850 census, and S.D. is 41 in the 1870 census. Sarah was 54 in the 1850 census and 74 in the 1870 census.

111 1920 census in Durham Co., NC has him working in hosiery mill. 1930 census, Burlington, NC, has him working as superintendant in hosiery mill.

Benjaman (sic) Coleman, age 26
111 golden Rd., Durham NC
b. 7/27/1891

everything checks with what we know of B. F. Coleman.

The only "Benjamin Coleman' in 1900 NC census born w/in 2 years of 1891:

Alamance Co., Graham:

Coleman, Sidney, head, Mar 1858, marr. 19 yrs, b. in VA, both parents b. VA, working in hosiery mill

Will of Alexander Kinchen, deceased

In the name of God, Amen. I, Alexander Kinchen of the county of Chatham and state of North Carolina, being low in health, though of sound mind and being strongly impressed with the mortality of the human frame, do make and ordain this my will and testament. First, I am perfectly content with the law of the state as to what property I may leave, that is to say, that my loving wife Elizabeth, and my dear little son William Poe should occupy and enjoy it. But as I have sold the land I received by my said wife, and further as I have lately sold the house and lot whereon I new live, and thus not possessing either house or houses, and as my said wife and child will shortly, that is to say, on the twenty-fifth day of December next, be without a house, it being the day on which my agreement that the said premises are to be given up, and as there will be a necessity for some provision to be made in this respect, therefore my will and desire is that my Executors hereinafter named be empowered at their pleasure and by their judgment, to purchase a piece of land with comfortable buildings, or otherwise to build them one or to purchase a house and lot that may appear most expedient and property, so that my said wife and child may be supplied with an abiding place. And further, that my said Executors may sell again or swap or purchase further as to them may seem most property for the convenience and advantage of my said wife and child. Further my wish is that my old Negro slave Sarah, my bay horse and my stock of saddlery and saddler’s tools, be sold on such credit or in such way as my said Executors may deem most advisable, or that said slave be hired out at the discretion of my said Executors. And that nothing else be sold except my Executors should find it necessary or expedient. Also my desire is (as must and ought to be the case) that all my just depts. Be paid as soon as the situation of my affairs will permit, and for this purchase as well as others, I desire that the debts due me may be collected as soon as may be consistent with the ordinary inconvenience to my debtors. Again as respects my Negro salve Harry, I presume the best plan will be to keep him at his trade, but in this I give full latitude to my Executors, either to hire him out or purchase a set of smith tools, furnish shop, etc., and set him to work, and if they please, let my Negro slave Jo, with him as a striker, or to do otherwise as they may deem best. Finally, respecting my Executors, I wish no restraints put upon them, but the following, but allow them to bargain, buy and sell at their pleasure with this single restraint, that they have an eye simply to the benefit of my dear wife and child. And further that the property remain in the possession of and under the direction of my said Executors until my said wife shall again marry or until my said son shall come of age, which will be should he live, on the fourteenth day of September the year of our Lord and twenty-five. On the event of either, my will is that the property of every description shall be fairly divided between them, share and share alike. And lastly, I do hereby appoint my dear and loving wife, Executrix, and my trusty friend, Rhoderick Cotten (Cathen), William Dismukes and Winship Stedman, Executors to this my last will and testament. I hope that they will do me the favor to comply with this my last important request. In testimony of all which I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal at Pittsborough in the state aforesaid, this 21st day of June 1806

137 4/2014: recent DNA testing of the webmaster makes it highly likely that James M. Johnson's parents were Marmaduke Johnson and Jane Allen, as DNA shows that the webmaster is descended from Jane Allen's great-grandfather, William Reeves. See Jane's page and follow her line back for details.
====================================================
A man of mystery. The biggest 'brick wall' in my family tree. See record of father (?) Marmaduke Johnson for more detail and sources. Seems to have gone by the name 'Monroe', rather than 'James', per 1870 and 1880 census records, and his marriage certificate.

Shows up on 1870 and 1880 Chatham Co., NC, censuses (Hadley Township), living in household of Manly Durham, with birth year of 1859. Place of parents birth is blank in 1870 census, 'NC' in 1880. Durham is witness on his 1885 marriage license/certificate. Names of parents are blank, bride Eunice Buckner's are filled in. His death certificate only has "D/K" (don't know) in spaces for parents names. Informant is son Thomas Johnson.

North Carolina Death Collection, 1908-1996
about James M Johnson
Death Date: Mar 1927
Death County: Alamance
Death State: North Carolina
Death Age: 68
Birth Date: 1859

Source: NC State Archives. North Carolina Deaths, 1908-67

The only known record linking him to possible parents is from the 1860 Alamance census:

1860 Alamance Co. census. At Alamance Co. poorhouse: shows a 'Monroe Johnson ', age 1. (pg. 14, Graham PO). Others in household:

M. Johnson: 45 M,
E.A. Watson: 13 F,
Alice Heron : 1 F,
Martha Brown: 25 F,
Jane Johnson: 35 F,
James Johnson: 7 M,
Monroe Johnson: 1 M

Everything that follows is based on the assumption that, because Jane is listed above James and Monroe Johnson, she must be their mother. 'Cannot read or write' is checked for Jane.

In notes beside this family, the census taker wrote 'Pauper'. This is the only 'Monroe Johnson' or 'James Johnson' whose age is close to James Monroe Johnson's known birthdate anywhere in the 1860 Chatham or Alamance Co. censuses. Jane Johnson would seem to be his mother. See her record for more info.

Manly Durham was witness to Monroe Johnson's 1885 marriage to Eunice Buckner. (His name is listed as 'Monroe Johnson', not 'James' or 'James Monroe Johnson' on marriage certificate).

James Monroe Johnson is buried at Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Chatham Co., beside wife Eunice Buckner. Name is on stone as 'JM Johnson'.

1880 Chatham Co. census:
Monroe Johnson, age 21, farm laborer, Hd of household: Manly Durham, relation: "Other",place: Hadley, Chatham, North Carolina. Eunice Buckner also lives in Hadley Twp. She is on page 19 , he on pg 9 .

Wife Eunice Buckner died 1897 and their children were raised by relatives, mainly brothers of Eunice Buckner. James Monroe Johnson is nowhere to be found in 1900 Alamance or Chatham Co. censuses. The only one in the state that is close is in the state mental hospital in Morganton:

1900 NC census, Burke Co., Morganton
State Hospital
Johnson, James M., b. 1856, can?t read/write

Year of birth is different but you find many years of birth in JM Johnson's various records. Did he have a breakdown after wife Eunice died?

In 1910 working as a hired man for brother in law John M. Buckner, and living in his household.

The only one close in 1920 Alamance or Chatham Co. census is in Burlington:

1920 Alamance census, Burlington, p.22,

Johnson, James, 60, can?t read/write, laborer in cotton mill
Kattie B., wife, 21
(note on census gives his home location as Johnson St. ? 3 blocks from son Henry F. Johnson?s home on Tucker St.)

That he can't read/write is a key connector between the various census records, as with his mother Jane.

Records of the Alamance 'County Home' (home for the aged/poorhouse) show that a JM Johnson died there in 1927, the same year we know our JM Johnson died. Location of 'County Home':

?Holt Cemetery: Location - in Burlington, NC on Williamson Street, at the corner of Wood Ave., on the site of the old Alamance County Home for the Aged (the original poor house). Coordinates: 36d 04m 36.0s N; 79d 25m 12.0s W?

Relationship to Col. Thomas Avent is speculative, but seems very likely to the webmaster. Working with a Devon-based genealogist, who was familiar with the Devon Avent family, a thorough search only found two Thomas Avents born in Devon around the known year of Col. Thomas Avent's birth (ca. 1671).

The attached baptism record for St. Werburgh's Church, Wembury, Devon shows both of these. Other research has confirmed that Thomas, son of Thomas and Anne Avent, stayed in Devon, marrying Mary Browning in 1702 and dying in Devon in 1728. No further trace (after 1701) of the other Thomas Avent, son of John and Julyan Avent, has been found. There is a 10 Apr 1700 marriage record from a Plymouth church (Charles the Martyr Church, 7 miles from Wembury) of a Thomas Avent to a Mary Towson, and then a burial record from Oct 1701 of a "Mary, wife of Thomas Avent" in St. Werburgh's Church in Wembury, Devon, the same church both Thomas Avents were baptized in, in 1670-71. A possible scenario, in the opinion of the webmaster, is that Thomas Avent, married Mary Towson and then she died (possibly in childbirth) a year later, prompting his emigration to Virginia in 1701).

A further hint is that Col. Thomas Avent named his first born son John, and it was a common practive to name the first born son after the father's father.

Info on John Avent, his wife and parents, comes from the Ancestry.com tree of the Devon-based genealogist, who the webmaster believes is a reliable reference.

144 A Duncan Bohannan lives next to Richard in 1805 in Chatham Co., NC. This info was listed in his estate papers when he died. Richard received the
plantation his father lived on from his father, Duncan's, will in 1760, Orange Co., NC. (Chatham Co. was later created out of Orange Co.)

In Nov 1764 John Bohannan deeded land in Orange Co., N C to Richard.

1781-1785-Overseer of Road
1789-witness to will of George Laws Sr. 1791-sale from Richard to Murdock McQueen

Richard began life as BOHANNAN. In 1790 census is listed as BOKHANAN, in the 1800 census as
BAHANNAN, and in 1805 in his will is listed as BUCHANAN. All of his descendants use the spelling BUCHANAN. Richard's middle name may have been Abner. (There are references to this man as Abner.) However, in one case, the author claims Abner and Elizabeth had 6 children and came from Scotland after the Rev. War. In the other case, the author claims that Abner and Elizabeth Minter were probably from Pa. In the last case, another author disclaims Abner and Elizabeth Minter as the parents of our Joseph. She claims Joseph and Abner were the sons of Richard and Elizabeth.

Will of Richard Bohannan/Buchanan is on file at Raleigh. --Elizabeth, wife, Abner son, Elizabeth Griffis dau., wife of Pleasant Griffis, Sarah Buchanan dau., Joseph Buchanan son, May Buchanan son, Susannah Chapman dau. wife of James Chapman, Frances Griffis dau. wife of Herbert Griffis, Files: Pleasant and Elizabeth Griffis, Sarah Buchanan, Frances and Herbert Griffis of Smith co, Tenn and James Chapman from WIlson co, Tenn.

2C John Oliver Minter
By all known accounts, John Oliver Minter [2], the second son of Anthony and Elizabeth, was born in 1718. Where he was born is unknown but very likely he grew up in Caroline County. About the late 1740s, he married Elizabeth Michaux Morgan of Cumberland County. Her ancestry traced to the early Jamestown era on her father's side and to Amsterdam and France, via the Huguenot exodus from France of the late 17th century, on her mother's side. An account of this lineage by this author was published in December, 2006 in a Minter family newsletter described below.

According to Dellinger, John bought land in Cumberland County in 1763, and in a court document there in 1769, his wife Elizabeth and three children were mentioned. John acquired a 54-acre tract in Bedford County, the deed dated August 27, 1770 (copy courtesy of Bob White). In 1772 he moved to Chatham County, NC where he purchased 500 acres from his nephew, Jeremiah Minter, son of Anthony, Jr.

One of the sons of John and Elizabeth was Joseph [3], born about 1750 in Cumberland. Joseph moved as a young man with his family about 1772 to Chatham County, NC, where he married Frances "Fannie" Hill. A son of Joseph and Fannie was John Morgan Minter [4], born in 1792, who married Dorothy Brooks Mathis. They settled in Georgia, first in Hancock County and later in Marion County where he was a representative to both houses of the Georgia legislature.

In 1855, some three years after his wife's passing, John and some of his grown children moved to Hopkins County, Texas. He died the following year, but two of his sons remained in what became known as the "Pine Forest" area (about 20 miles east of Dallas), and from them has descended an extensive and highly "connected" family who call themselves the "Minters of Pine Forest."

This family network is connected through "The Minters of Pine Forest Family Association" and its extraordinary newsletter, "News of the Minters of Pine Forest," and through a family website which includes photographs, family news and history, anecdotes, remembrances, and the like, as well as an outline of a book in progress on the history of the family. The prime mover behind all this is a descendant of one of two brothers, Thomas J. Minter [9], of Ohio. A good place to start to learn more about this line is www.pineforestminters.homestead.com.

Minter, John Oliver (I0575)
 
147 According to family tradition, he and his wife were citizens of the Chickasaw Nation. He is said to have been 'mestizo' (mixed white-Indian) and his wife was either that or full blooded Chickasaw.

The family Bible says he was born 1799 in the old Chickasaw Nation, near present-day Grand Junction, TN in Hardeman Co.

Thomas Moore arrived in Hardeman Co. in the early to mid 1830's. He and his wife had at least 3 children: a daughter, Mariah (who later married a Harris), and twin boys listed below (William A. Moore and Thomas Harrison Moore). The Moores first settled in the Indian Creek area and then in the Van Buren area where it is believed their home still stands. Tradition holds that Thomas' parents were burned out of their home on Indian Creek and murdered by brigands from the Natchez Trace.
