RE: Just a note
I forgot to tell you about my grandparents. If you look on my site, you will see my virtual cemeteries of my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, etc.

From Sarah
Hi Jean, Johannes Albrecht, his wife, and five children arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam on the "Johnson Galley" in 1732. They settled in Lancaster County in an area that later became a part of Berks County. Three of the children later moved to NC as adults with their families, including my ancestor, Lodawick (Ludwig).

RE: Just a note
Hi Jean, I wish we could meet for tea. I live in FL though. Most of my ancestors came from MD, VA, NC, SC, GA, AL, and TN after their families arrived in this country in the mid-1600s and 1700s. I grew up in Alabama and married a guy whose ancestors came from DE, NJ, and PA. My Albrecht/Albright family came from Germany to PA in the early 1700s. Genealogy has been a passion of mine since I was in my teens. Good luck on transferring the information to LDS. I have never attempted to do that. I hope that you are having a wonderful day.

RE: Just a
Hi Jean, it is so nice to hear from you! I looked in my family tree and found no connection. I must have been strolling through a virtual cemetery and left a token. I used to do that frequently. However, I have not been as active on Find A Grave for the past two years due to eye problems. My husband's maternal ancestors were from Bucks County, PA and I had maternal ancestors(Albrecht/Albright)from Berks County, PA. We used to take genealogy trips, but my husband passed away in 2012. I love genealogy and would love to devote more time to it again. I belong to DAR and have thought about joining UDC. I have numerous ancestors who fought in the Civil War and several in the American Revolution. There is one Revolutionary soldier that I would like to do a supplemental on. He was a neighbor of George and Martha Washington.

RE: Double dip - Johnson
My husband's Johnson family came from Delaware to New Jersey in the mid 1800s. I had a great aunt, who married a Johnson, but I don't know anything about his family other than they lived in Randolph County, AL.

RE: Julia R Lewis - Hopewell Cem
Yup, you have me totally confused:

"RE: Julia R Lewis - Hopewell Cem
I finally figured out how to add a relative.
Need a correction for Julia Lewis and I can't figure that out. She is listed as her own sister. I couldn't figure out how to delete it.
I am about over my whirl with the Swisher's so I will leave you alone. Thank you."

I do not see a Julia Lewis in any cemetery, so I can't see who you are talking about. Send the findagrave ID number for her entry if you want me to look at it.

RE: Julia R Lewis - Hopewell Cem
Do you mean Josephine R. Lewis? If so, she is listed under the siblings on her page, but you'll notice it is grayed out vs the other ones. That is normal. If you mean Julia R. Lewis, then I don't see that one in Hopewell Methodist.

RE: Julia R Lewis - Hopewell Cem
I don't understand the sibling comment. You own Julia's entry so you can change anything you want. Because Julia is linked to her mother she appears as a sibling.

Go to Goldie's entry and use the edit tab relationship and put Emma's id number in as mother. it will get changed. I may have already done that. The three girls are going to show up as siblings, because they are all linked to the same mother. If you link Goldie and the other Norris maiden named child to their father, and not Julia V., then it may show Riley as a half sister. You'll have to play with it.

RE: Johnson family of Appling Co

I think you posted on my wall over a year ago, so I'm sorry for the late reply. I'm going to copy your original post down below to help us both out.

To answer your post, yes, I live near Appling County and I am familiar with Corinth Cemetery. I have been there one time to take pictures and only found four or five graves with Johnson on them. I have two ancestors that are recorded to be buried there, but their graves are not marked. I would be glad to help you in any way. Here is my Johnson tree starting with me.

me-> Homer Johnson -> Edgar Johnson -> Homer Milton Johnson -> Obediah Johnson -> Malcolm Johnson -> Daniel Johnson -> Matthew Johnson (R.S.)

Johnson family of Appling Co
Hi Phil...
I am a descendant in the Johnson family. I am tracing my Johnson connections to the Revolution. Do you live near Appling County, Georgia? Are you familiar with the Corinth Cemetery, Johnson, Appling Co? I have some photos...Jean (Cain m. Johnson)
