James "Seneca" Johnson was born between 24 May 1767 and 19 Jun 1767 (based upon the Louisa, VA Personal Property Tax Records)
He is the son of James Johnson and Lucy Moorman of Louisa, VA
James' older sister Elizabeth was the second wife of Zachariah Moorman (a former neighbor in Louisa that moved to Bedford) after his first wife Elizabeth Terrell died.
James must have spent time with his sister and her step children, especially Millie.
Mildred "Millie" Moorman, daughter of Zachariah Moorman and Elizabeth Terrell, was born on 2 Oct 1760 in Louisa, Virginia. In 1763 her family relocated to Bedford county.
James Johnson and Millie Moorman were married on September 1, 1779 in what was then Bedford Co, VA (became part of Campbell Co. in 1781) with her father, Zachariah Moorman, posting bond as surety. James was very young when they were married so the Quakers would not have approved it, so they had a civil marriage.
Milley Johnson (formerly Moorman) was “Disowned for being married by a hireling priest” on 20 Sep 1779 at South River Meeting House.
1779, 10, 16. Milly (now Johnson) dis Condemed - married contrary to discipline
Millie and James witnessed the marriage of Joseph E. Johnson and Agatha Moorman (Millie's sister) on 17 Apr 1785 in South River Meeting house, Campbell, Virginia.
Several of the Campbell Co. Tax lists have a note of “Seneca” beside his name in the record, which is a creek where the family lived.
Mildred was named in the Will and probate of Zachariah Moorman (her father) on 2 Jul 1789 in Campbell, Virginia, United States. Millie was living on 2 Jul 1789 in Campbell, Virginia,
In her request for reinstatement on 17 Sep 1791 at South River Meeting House in Campbell, Virginia, United States.
Dear Friends : I having married contrary to Discipline, for which I was justly disowned by you, and being lately measurably sensible of the disadvantage of such a separation, do therefore condemn my misconduct in that respect and desire to be reinstated to Friends again, and hope my future conduct will evidence the sincerity of this my acknowledgment. Milley Johnson. 9-17-1791.
She was Reinstated on 21 Jan 1792 at South River Meeting House in Campbell, Virginia, United States.
Millie was reinstated in 1792 but disowned again in March of 1801 for “joining the ME Church”
On 14 Dec. 1807 James Johnson of Campbell County signed a Power of Attorney to his son Zachariah M Johnson to try and recover his portion of the estate from his father James in Louisa County, currently in possession of Micajah. [Deed Book 8 p 81]
On the 14th of December 1807 in Campbell County James gave his son Zachariah a Power of Attorney to try and recover his share from Micajah.
Know all men by these presents that I James Johnson of the County of Campbell have for sundry good causes and weighty considerations, nominated, constituted, ordained and appointed and by these present do nominate, constitute, ordain and appoint my trusty and well beloved son Zachariah M. Johnson my true and lawful attorney to ask, demand, recover and receive for me and in my name and to my use and behoof, giving and by these presents granting to my said attorney my sole and full power and authority to sue, arrest, or use any other lawful means for the recovering, obtaining and receiving of and from Micajah Johnson or his heirs in the County of Louisa my moity of a certain tract of land in the County aforesaid agreeable to the last will and testament of my dec.d father James Johnson, which is now claimed and held by the said Micajah Johnson
This document established the fact that James Seneca was the son of James & Lucy.
The 1810 Campbell Co. census includes three James Johnsons (pages 15, 16, 18),
Page 15 appears to be James and Millie. 1 male < 10 = Anslem; 1 male 27-44 = James (43 years old). Unknown female < 10, and 1 female 27-45.
The fifty-year-old Millie either lied or the census taker just assumed she was about the same age as James.
James Johnson appeared in the 1820 census in Campbell, Virginia, United States. p157 (308) the same page as Wm Fosdick, Henry T. Moorman, and Thomas Farmer

Will Book 5 Page 417 - 13 Aug 1827 - Inventory of Estate of James Johnson deceased.
In the 1830 Campbell County Census for Anslem, Millie was the 60-70 year old female.
Millie and Anslem sold the Seneca Creek Property and moved to Ohio in Oct 1834.
Anslem then purchased a farm in Warren twp, Clinton, Ohio.
In the late October 1840 Clinton, Ohio Census Millie was living with Anslem and was the 80-90 female listed.
She must have died in Ohio between 1840 and 1850 in her 80s since she has not been found in the 1850 Census.
There are two missing tombstones at the Port William Cemetery in the same row with Anslem and John D. One might have been Millie's.

John Johnson and Susanna, his wife, emigrated from Campbell County, Va., to Highland County, Ohio, in 1805. In 1806, he moved with his family to the farm now owned by Silas Mathis. He spent the first winter in a camp. Mr. Johnson was a noted hunter, and for years supplied his family with meat with his gun. The first election in this township was held at Mr. Johnson's house. They raised a family of twelve children. Four of them were still living Ann Scott, James, Polly Johnson (widow of J. M.

A 1906 letter from their youngest daughter to a niece states that John “held to the doctrine of Friends but never was united with the church.”
John D. was living in Mar 1810. March of 1810 when John paid $190 for 114 acres of land on Anderson's fork of Caesar's Creek in Liberty Twp, Clinton Co OH. The purchase was made from Nathaniel Pope, an early Highland Co. settler who had bought 1000 acres of land from William Lupton and James Johnson, possibly a relative of John.
John was living in 1811 in Clinton, Ohio, United States. In the Spring of 1811 they moved to the wilderness of Clinton Co. The first year they lived in a shelter made of poles which was open on one side. A constant log fire provided a means of cooking as well as warmth and was also a deterrent to wolves and bears during the night. A log cabin was soon erected and they raised a total of 11 children there, losing one daughter as an infant. A history of Clinton Co. states that John was a noted hunter and supplied meat for his family with his gun. The first election in the township was held at their home.
He was living in 1830. In about 1830, John and Susannah built a one-story brick house where they spent the rest of their lives. Their children were leaving home about this time and eventually provided them with 68 grandchildren. All of their children joined the Methodist church during a revival at Port William and one of their sons became a minister of that denomination in Iowa.
He appeared in the census in 1840 in Liberty, Clinton, Ohio, United States. p9

In 1845 John had his Liberty, Clinton, Ohio land surveyed and he had 135 ½ acres. The farm was located just south of Port William.
In 1847 he sold ½ acre for District #4 school to be built.
He appeared in the census in 1850 in Liberty, Clinton, Ohio, United States. He was living with his daughter Ann Scott and his real estate was valued at $3300.
In September of 1851 he sold his farm for $3000 to his son-in-law James M. Johnson (the son of Micajah, the son of Moorman, the son of James "Gov") , the husband of his daughter Polly.
John died on 19 Aug 1857 at the age of 77 in Port William, Liberty, Clinton, Ohio, United States.
He was buried at the Old Cemetery - part of New Maple Grove Cemetery in Port William, Liberty, Clinton, Ohio, United States. Age 77 years 5 months and 27 days. He is buried next to Susannah
After their marriage, John and Susannah lived in VA until their objection to slavery and the opening of new lands motivated them to move to the free state of OH. In the Fall of 1805, along with their four children, they joined several other related couples to make the long journey, carrying whatever they could take in their wagons. It took them five weeks and they settled among relatives and friends in Highland Co in the vicinity of what is now Leesburg. The route taken was probably what was called the Upper River Road north through VA to Alexandria, then the Pioneer Road which cut through the Ashley Gap of the Blue Ridge Mountains to Winchester, VA. From there, a road connected with Braddock's Road at Fort Cumberland MD which took them to Uniontown in PA and a road to Wheeling. A ferry there connected to the newly-improved Zane's Trace which went through Zanesville and then turned south to the Chillicothe area, the destination of these families. In February of1 806,. Susannah , wife of John, was granted a certificate to Miami Monthly Meeting in OH. They undoubtedly stayed with relatives until March of 1810.
Susanna died on 9 Aug 1844 at the age of 63 in Port William, Liberty, Clinton, Ohio, United States. The Dover Monthly Meeting of Quakers recorded that Susannah died on August 9, 1844 and she was buried at Old Cemetery - New Maple Grove cemetery in Port William. She was almost 64 years of age.

When Benjamin Butterworth left Virginia by covered wagon with his wife, Rachael, and their younger children, on September 25, 1812, it took twenty-five days to reach the home of his half-sister in Highland County, Ohio. When Benjamin reached his newly purchased land in Warren County, he was shocked to find he had purchased 1500 acres of densely wooded land filled with steep hills, deep gullies and wild animals. After assessing the situation, he headed to Waynesville to stay at the home of Zachariah and Polly Johnson who had recently settled there, as Polly was his oldest daughter. http://www.littlemiamistatepark.org/join-us/21-uncategorised/people-places-and-events/26-butterworth-family-by-karen-dinsmore

20 iv. Zachariah M. Johnson was born before 31 Jul 1816 in Ohio, United States. listed on the 31 July 1816 received by request at Miami MM
4. James Johnson- Very little is know of this person. Information about his children was provided by two of his great grand daughters from a supposed family bible. Quite a bit has been found about the named children over the years. Recently there have been a few records that could actually be about him. Y-DNA has verified the connection to this branch of the Johnson family and minor amounts of at-DNA also support a connection. It is a work in progress.
James' son Henry M Johnson went to Clinton, Ohio and worked at John D.'s son Garland's store and was a witness to Garland's purchase of property in Port William.
James might have been born on 10 Apr 1787 in Virginia, United States. No idea where this date came from. 1787 does match the date on the marriage certificate.
Marriage & Wife: Rebecca Bolling Jones or Martha Jones?
The Family story was that on 30 Nov 1808 James Johnson married Rebecca Bolling Jones dau to Thomas Jones in Buckingham Co? (burned records) - Probably Incorrect
There was a James Johnson that married a Rebecca Jones (dau of Benjamin) in Campbell co VA on the 18th of November 1807. Ancestry DNA Thrulines makes this look correct.
In the 1880 Census: Henry said his mother was born in MD, William said VA, James M said VA
By Jan 1833 it appears that James was either dead or had left the area because his daughter 25 year old daughter Mary married a 50 year old William Fosdick on 4 Jan 1833.
William Fosdick then posted bond for William Johnson's marriage to Mary Farmer in April 1833.
James' son Henry was also living and working with an Uncle Thomas Jones in Lynchburg until he turned 21 in Dec 1835 and then he moved to Ohio to work for John D and his son Garland. Not a typical family life.
In the 1850 census for Campbell, Virginia a James & Rebecca both 60 were living near the Goodmans and others between Seneca and Troublesome Creeks.
James listed his parents as James & Millie on the 1854 marriage to Nancy Goodman (see below)
Various records from his children agree somewhat:
Mary's marriage listed Father named James & had 2 children named James & Rebecca
James Morton's death record had parents as James Johnson and Martha Jones
Achilles death record had parents James & Becca.
Per family stories Rebecca died on 8 Feb 1848 at the age of 63. , no proof

Permilia Johnson = Peter Wilson - several at-DNA matches with Jeff Bockman
Anslem L. Johnson (6 Jan 1802 - 23 April 1841) > Kit # 32640 - 67 *1
Kit # 32640 - The descendant of Anslem (67 markers) is connected to James & Millie by will, probate, and land records matches the group norm except for DYS413 which is 22-23 vs 23-23.
Kit # 633136 - The descendant of Zachariah (67 markers) matches the group norm except for DYS458 which was 16 vs the groups 17. This is a moderate mutating marker.
The Power of Attorney definately ties Zachariah to his father James and his father James in Louisa and implied brother Micajah.
Kit # 260420 - The descendant James' son William (67 markers) matched the group norm except for DYS446 which was 15 vs the groups 14. This is a moderate mutating marker.
Kit # 356103 - The descendant of John D's son James Barton (67 markers) matches the group norm except for DYS570 with a 19 vs the groups 18 and DYS464c which was a 16 vs the groups 17 (This is a relatively fast mutating marker). There are two others in the Olive group with this result who claim descent from the John who married Elizabeth Ellyson. The difference could be just a random mutation or the three might be more closely related.
Evaluation: While it would have been nice to see the results of all four tests be identical I have learned that the results show that they could easily have all descended from the same person. Mutations can also occur at any time, so with 6 or 7 generations down to each candidate anything can happen.
