ELSON, HOPPER, JOHNSON posted by Toni Reed on Monday, October 23, 2000

HOPPER and JOHNSON I'm looking for anyone that could be connected with the HOPPER I'm looking for. I have that a HOPPER boy (maybe Fred) married a JOHNSON girl her name I'm unsure of heres what it could be or you may have something else. Mima,Nina,Maude. She was the daughter of Thomas P. and Hannah (ELSON) JOHNSON. She was born around 1857 I found her listed in a 1860 Benton Co., census and in that her name looked like Mima so not for sure what it was or could be. I'm told they possibly moved to Ohio. The names Bert and Glada from Lexington,OH. come up and they are suppose to be related to my JOHNSON relative. Any help any one could give me would be greatly appreicated. Sincerely, Toni

JENSEN, JOHNSON posted by Barb Morthland on Thursday, November 2, 2000

Searching for any information on Louis JOHNSON/JENSEN who lived or farmed in Blairstown, Benton County. He was the brother of my grandfather, Jens Peter JOHNSON/JENSEN. Jens & Louis were born in Denmark. Jens arrived in U.S. in 1882..not sure about Louis. Jens settled in Clinton, Iowa. In his obituary it mentions his brother Louis attending from out of town. We have found a couple of post cards from Louis, but can't tell where he mailed them from. At one time my father mentioned having owned a farm in Blairstown and am wondering if this had something to do with Louis. Will share any JOHNSON/JENSEN information that I have.

HENNINGS posted by Sandra (Hennings) Swaney on Tuesday, November 28, 2000

HENNINGS is a huge family, there are a couple of legs that have 10 children and others with nine. My HENNINGS family came from Germany, and settled in Iowa, and some moved to Neb. I found one the HENNINGS name in Benton County Pioneer Recollections, and also found a W. HENNINGS in the Benton County Atlas list, 1872. I need all information on each HENNINGS name that I find, so soon these names will give me clues to what father, or child each one of these family members belong to. So please any information on a HENNINGS name that you might be able to tie with another HENNINGS name, like a fathers name or a list of childrens names, will help me put this family puzzle together. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Sandra my e-mail is:
