The Johnson Family

 
 

 

Official Scottish Tartan for the Johnson/Johnston Family

 

Name Origin: ENGLAND, Scotland

The name Johnson originates in England.  The name literally means "Son of John". 

The name Johnson is also derived from the Hebrew name "Johanan", meaning "Jehovah has favored".  Johnson was an extremely popular in the Middle Ages as a result of the numerous connections between the name John and the Christian Church.
The name is first found in Lincolnshire, England, where the Johnson family had been granted lands by Duke William on his conquest of England in 1066.
 
There are numerous Johnson families living in North Carolina, but records indicate that the larges number of Johnsons in the US reside in Georgia, Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois and Minnesota.

I recently received an email from Betsy Ross-Edison, who, like many of us, descend from Pinckney Johnson and Levina Sherrill.  [Pinckney Johnson and Levina Sherrill were the paternal grandparents of Buelah Vernesta Johnson, wife of Martin Luther Goble.]  Betsy had published a historic fiction novel (in two parts) based on the life of Pinckney Johnson.  This is what she had to say:
 
We were in touch earlier about our great- and great-great grandparents, Lavinia Sherrill  and Pinckney Johnson.  My Dad was Evalina's son and his first name was also Pinckney. This name got me started on a novel.  And I have at last researched and completed a Civil War historical novel now on Amazon Books and on Kindle, entitled:
 

Pinckney's General, A Novel of the Civil War, Twice Told

 

 
It's in two Volumes covering the big complex battles in Virginia and Maryland in which Pinckney fought.  We can be proud of him!  He was in the thick of it and never deserted Lee when at the end men were deserting up to 100 per day from the barren and hungry Petersburg trenches.  I tried very hard in the battles for "historical accuracy."  The book also has a story.
 
I fell in love with my grandmother's musical sounding and old-timey name of Evalina.  And I found different spellings for Lavinia-Levinia-Lovinia.  Thus in my novel I gave Evalina as the name of Pinckney's wife.  It's historical fiction after all.  So I thought I had some leeway!  If you read it, hope you like the name!
 
I could not find any details of when the promotion to Corporal was made.  But I will Forward to you a Federal record stating this rank.  That might be good for your website.
