Williamson Johnson + Katie Lou Fields = 13 Children

When I found Williamson Johnson in the 1910 Gwinnett County, Georgia Federal census with his wife Katie Lou, I noticed the entry states Katie had 13 children. All of the children were listed as living, too, which is such a rarity. Though only five were listed in the household at that time, I decided to try and find all the children using only census records.

Lucky for me, Williamson and Katie Lou lived in the same county from 1880 through 1920. Williamson was always easy to spot, with a few variations for Katie. Sometimes it was just spelling, and once she was listed as Callie. In 1880, they were found as William and Catherine. Anyway, here is a pieced together list of the 13 children of Williamson and Katie Lou Johnson:
  • Effie [totally guessing at name, but definitely a daughter] (b. abt 1871) *1880
  • James B. (b. abt 1873) *1880
  • Stephen (b. abt 1874) *1880
  • Benjamin / Ben (b. abt 1876-1878) *1920 & 1880
  • Asberry (b. 1878) *1900 & 1880
  • Roman W. (b. 1879-1880) *1900 & 1880
  • Charley (b. 1882) *1900
  • Maude A. (b. abt 1884) *1900
  • Rabun C. (b. abt 1886-1887) *1920, 1910, 1900
  • Tobie B. (b. 1888) *1900
  • Elijah (b. abt 1891-1892) *1910, 1900
  • Jordan / Jorda (b. abt 1893-1894) *1910, 1900
  • Annie L. (b. abt 1895-1896) *1910, 1900

Williamson and Katie Lou rest in Snellville Historical Cemetery.
