Johnsons Of Saline County, Illinois

Saline Co., IL, Deeds
28 November 1862
John & Mary Johnson
James Johnson
SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 of Section 1 Twp 9 South of Range 6 of the 3rd Principal Meridian
40 81/100 acres
Signed: John Johnson
Mary (her mark) Johnson
Witness: T. A. Jones, Clerk

My John Johnson wasn't the only person of that name in Saline County, Illinois, in the 1860 time frame.  There was another John Johnson, born in 1800 in Pennsylvania, with wife Eleanor, living in a different area, S S T 7 R 6 E, on the 1860 census. 

On the 1860 census, it was confirmed that it was my John Johnson, born in Georgia in 1793, and his wife, Mary (Greer) Johnson, who were living on the property sold to James Johnson (presumably their son, who was also my ancestor) on Deed H-160; the census stated that my Johnsons were living at T 9 R 6 E (Twp. 9 Range 6 East).
