Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sarah Joyce Gibbs Johnson. I am a native of Alabama and a graduate of the University of Alabama. My parents, William Albert Gibbs and Lemma Lee Otwell Gibbs, are now deceased. I have been actively researching my ancestral families for the past fourteen years. My mother was our family genealogist for almost 50 years and she was instrumental in developing my interest in continuing the search for our ancestors.

Paternal Lineage: Bacon, Barry, Barton, Brewer, Brook/Brookes, Calhoun, Clement/Clements, Collier, Cosper, Cullum/Cullen, Earnest, Gibbs, Glass, Hatton, Hyde, Jackson, Kimball, Kincheloe, Kite, Knapp, Lippincott, Little, McPherson, Nuthall, Phillips, Pottinger, Roberts, Sims/Simms, Small, Smith, Sprigg, Thompson, Vines, Wade, White, Wickliffe/Wycliffe, and Williams.

Maternal Lineage: Abney/De Albini, Albrecht/Albright, Ashley, Bentley, Berger, Billings, Bird/Byrd, Bobo, Brickhmann, Britt, Bull, Canning, Collier, Collins, Cottrell/Cotrall, Crumpton, Davidson, Dobbs, Ebourne, Elliott, Emory, Farlee/Farley, Garrett, Gaylord, Hawkins, Higginbotham, Hold/Holt, Hollowell, Hungerford, Jordan, Joy, Keller, Kendrick, Kenner, Kilgore/Killgore, Layton, Lewis, Lucas, Mann, Maroney/Meroney, Morgan, Moseley, Myrick, Neydeckh, Otwell, Pollard, Pounds/Pound, Prichard/Pritchard, Puleston, Reid, Rothchild, Scates, Scheible, Smith, Sorrell, Spencer, Spraggins, Thompson, Tippen/Tipping, Treat, Warner, Weems, Willet, Williams, Willoughby, Wise, Wofford, and Wood.

My husband, William Alvin Johnson, passed away on December 27, 2012. Bill was also very interested in genealogy. Most of his ancestors lived in Bucks Co., PA and Gloucester Co., NJ, with his earliest known ancestors arriving from Germany in the early 1700s.

Husband's Lineage: Dunk, French, Gibison,
Graeff, Johnson, Long, McIlvaine, Miller, Rufe, Scholl, Starr, Somers, Sumstone/Zumstein, Walters/Wolterink, and Worman.

I am a member of the DAR, based on the military service of my 4th Great Grandfather, George Earnest of Virginia. My sister was a past Regent of the Palm Beach Chapter of the DAR. I am hoping to work on some supplementals as time allows. Our earliest ancestors came to the Colonies of Maryland and Virginia from England in the 1600s, including David Wickliffe, Zachariah (Zachary) Wade, and Thomas Sprigg of Maryland; and Thomas Ottowell of Jamestown, Virginia. In the 1700s, other ancestors, Michael Hold (1717), Georg Sheible (1717), Johannes Albrecht (1732), and Henrick Gasper (1768), along with their families, arrived from Germany; and Gabriel Baubau (1700) from France.

Thank you for placing tokens on the memorials of my husband, parents, and other relatives. I appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much. When you have time, please visit the memorial of my sister, Janice Thorstad, # 118906487, who passed away on October 11, 2013.

My husbands Great Great Grandmother was Frolena / Frolener Cosper Casey... I see that you have a death date for her of 1883 (? I think).. Can you tell me where she died and where she is buried. I found somewhere she may have died from heart problems, but I cant remember where I read that. I have very little information on the Caseys, other than the name of their children, which I am sure you have. One of their daughters, Minnie Pearl Casey married Jemmison Gordon McClure in OK Territory. They had a son, JGMc, Jr. The Sr. McClure was murdered in Pauls Valley OK and she remarried to John A. Hogard. They had several children, one being my husbands grandfather, Woodrow Wilson Hogard.. After the death of John A Hogard, she again married.. to Waldo Milam, who was an evil man. She died about 1920 and is buried in Antioch Cem near Pauls Valley. Thanks for any info you can send my way.. Marsha Hogard. West Monroe, LA

RE: From Sarah
Yes, I have as well. I don't use it as a source in my documentation because it was put together mainly from family memories instead of official documents, I just use it as an aid to get me started or unstuck. And it has some pretty neat photos, too. :)

RE: From Sarah
Thanks again! I do have a copy of that book; it is such a great resource! :)

Thank you again. I think I'm all done with the Cheatwoods for now, but I'm moving on to the Connells, which you have probably come across, too, since many of them are buried in the same cemeteries in Cleburne Co. Thank you so much for being so cooperative and helpful. :)

RE: From Sarah
Thanks for your help with all of the Cheatwood edits I've been sending you. I will likely send more as I am still researching this branch of my family. Have a great day! :)

Thank you
Hi, I just ran across some of your information on this site, including my 4th great-grandfather, Salathiel Perry Clements, father of my 3rd great-grandmother, Lydia Clements Bush. I remember my beloved grandfather telling stories of how much he loved his grandmother, Lydia, and finding more information about his lineage just brings him closer to me. If you would like information about the Lydia Clements Bush lineage, I can be contacted at Lydia Clements Bush's findagrave memorial number is 60660873 (Midway Cemetery in Adamsville, Al) in case you want to link her to her parents. I don't manage those memorials and don't even have Lydia linked to my great-grandmother, Nettie Bush Johnson, although I need to make the effort to do that soon. Thank you!
