About Samuel Johnson
Additional Curator's Notes
PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE THIS NORTH CAROLINA FAMILY WITH THE FAMOUS DR SAMUEL JOHNSON OF LONDON. We have a very unusual set of coincidences here. Two men named Samuel Johnson had fathers named Michael Johnson, mothers name Sarah, and wives name Elizabeth.
Family lore states that Samuel Johnson was the father of Thomas T. Johnson of Rowan County, North Carolina. No facts have been found to prove or disprove the claim. Samuel is believed to be the son of Michael Johnson and wife Sarah. He married Elizabeth Porter.
