About John Johnson

John Johnson did not long survive his mother, for his will was probated on February 22, 1726, in Westmoreland. He left all that his stepfather (Joseph Ball of Epping Forest) had given him in Stafford County to Mary BalI (his step sister, mother of George Washington) and a young dappled-gray riding horse besides. Mary was then just eighteen.

The will of Mary Johnson Ball, which was unearthed by G. W. Beale of more recent years, is dated December 17, 1721. It was made at St. Stephens parish and mentions Mary Ball, John Johnson, and her daughter, Elizabeth Bonim (Mrs. Samuel Bonim). John Johnson and George Eskridge are named as executors.
