      jh note: Could it be that this Benjamin Johnson married Whiney White and not Whiney Arnold? Also could Verlinda White's father James White be the same as James son of Daniel Sr. White d. 1748/9 KG probate.

      (NOTE: This index reference I believe is wrong. There is a Sarah Arnold
      listed as a daughter, and a Winney Johnson listed as a daughter, but no
      Winney Arnold.)

      Benjamin and Winefred Johnson came to Kentucky from Preddye's Creek (also called Pretty's or Prethis Creek) in Albermarle County, Virginia, home of President Thomas Jefferson. The ancestry of Benjamin and Winefred Johnson has not been confirmed, however, there is a close connection to two better known Johnsons, Cave and Robert Johnson. Cave Johnson was a significant figure at Bryant's Station in Fayette County. Cave Johnson then moved to Boone County, where he appears on numerous court records, many in conjunction with Benjamin Johnson. Robert Johnson was the father of Richard Mentor Johnson, vice-president under Martin Van Buren.


      Benjamin and Winefred Johnson parented at least four children- Mary, George Martin, Lucy and Robert (not the same Robert as previously mentioned). It was to Lucy and her husband, Christopher Wilson, whom Benjamin deeded 130 acres of his Boone Farm in 1801. It was upon this farm that the Johnson-Wilson Cemetery was established with the burial of Winefred Johnson in 1812.
