Phil Johnson
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)

My GGG Grandfather is Michael Swisher 1800 Pa-1864 Ind. married to Saloma Stukey

Surnames on my Tree, Swisher/Switzer Stukey. Pa Ohio Ind then Mi.

I am on FTDNA.

If you have any info on "Child Schweitzer" I would appreciate it Thank You

RE: Brookover -
I still can't figure it out, but if there are only 5 Brookover's on FTDNA then my ex and both my daughters are 3 of them. He has done the Y-37 test and we are also on Family Finder for autosomal DNA, plus we've all tested at 23andMe as well as Ancestry. We are all on Gedmatch too.
Do you know for a fact if any male Brookover besides my ex has done the Y test?

RE: Brookover
When I go to FTDNA and click "Projects" then I click "join a project" then it takes me to the page with all the surname projects, I click on "B" it goes from Brookman to Brooks there is no Brookover. When I type Brookover into the search it doesn't show up. I have no idea how else to find it.

Let me check my notes about the 3 RS,ok I see the quote was from: Biographical & Historical Memoirs of Muskingum County Ohio History of Muskingum County Pages 398-399. I know one wasn't Asceal because that is who my ex and my daughters descend.
Richard was a baby during the war.
Ok, son John was in the Rev War, you can find his pension card on Ancestry. Thomas possibly as well, I don't have any source linked to him in my tree but I just took a quick look and others do, I'll have to research that another time. The 3rd might be his son-in-law Ann's husband Ezekial Carter. All the other sons were too young

RE: Brookover
I just checked again at FTDNA and didn't see the Brookover project, I searched all B surnames and also typed Brookover into the search bar. Can you give me a link???

We didn't write the bio, I kept it as is when the memorial was transferred.
He has done DNA testing and as far as I know there is no Brookover surname project, I've checked before and checked again just now. If you have a link that would be great. He matches with other Brookover's on all 3 testing sites, no doubt he is a Brookover.
Jacob's name was angelicalized here in America, there were no Brookovers coming from Europe, if you have proof to the contrary I would love to see it. I've been researching the Brookovers for years and they all go back to Jacob.

Norwood or Northwood in Downingtown
Northwood Cemetery is in Downingtown, which is a little confusing because Norwood Rd. runs behind it and the Norwood House apartments are next to it. But the name of the cemetery is Northwood.

Henry Crawford Tucker
I explained the different spellings of his middle name on his memorial page.

In reviewing the data for Henry, I do not see him listed as his brother.

Henry was named after his mother's father, Colonel Henry Cofford/Cafford/Crawford.
