Jack, I have e-mailed you links to my Yahoo files. I had entered this e-addy, but yahoo continue to revert to alternate e-addys, so these emails should receive e-mails as being sent from email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org . Please let me know if fail to receive these e-mails or you have any trouble accessing my yahoo files. If you have problems, I will be glad to send directly as attachements. The one e-mail should provide you with a link to a family photo (pic) of Alfred H JOHNSTON (JOHNSON) and some of his family. We have identified for certain one of Belle's (half-)sister, "Mattie" and her husband, Ferdinand MOULDER. The reverse of original family photo said JOHNSTON family. We are certain that the elderly man is Alfred H JOHNSTON, father of Belle and "Mattie" JOHNSTON. The elderly lady next to him is his wife, Martha E CANTRELL JOHNSTON, whom was Belle's mother. This elderly couple would have been the maternal grandparents of "Nettie" BARRINGER. The other men in photo are to believed to be the sons of Alfred H JOHNSTON; however there is uncertainty within in cousins as to who was who in photo. We have compared photo to a MOULDER family photo and are certain these men are not children of the MOULDER marriage. We believe the family photo was taken between 1890 to 1910 either in Arkansas or Texas. The associated text file should help identify as to the names of the family members in the photo. (You may have received 2 e-mails for the pic links, so please disregard, was not certain if 1st completed processing). An additional e-mail should provide you with links to a copy of 1900 Census page for Hill county, Texas which reflects Alfred H JOHNSTON and his family; directly below is the family of "Mattie", Martha A JOHNSTON MOULDER and Ferdinand MOULDER; and directly above is another sibling Cinthia Jane JOHNSTON SLOOP (?) and her husband, Martin L SLOOP (?) [could have been SHOOP]. Also, I have included a text file that summarized Census info for Alfred H JOHNSTON / JOHNSON. If you review this summary, you will notice that "C B JOHNSON" is shown to be have been born in Georgia, not in Texas as her death certificate reflects. It appears that "JOHNSON" family moved from Georgia to Arkansas between 1870 (after the Census was taken) to 1872 (the year that my husband's grandfather was born in AR 06-08-1872). We believe the JOHNSTON family moved to Texas between 1891 to 1898, mostly like about 1895. Another cousin has old autograph books that belongs to two youngest sons, which includes an inscription and signature of Belle BARRINGER. The youngest son, "Will" reflects the surname of JOHNSTON, where as my husband's grandfather, Benjamin "Lester", reflects JOHNSON. I do not recall any other inscription of BARRINGER, which would have been Belle's husband or his family. Do you have any info as to name of Nettie's father? Have you been able to locate any census info for her parents and if there were any siblings? Your info as well as the California death index shows that Nettie was born 1899 in Texas. The picture I previously mention of Nettie about age 15 was mailed from Arizona to her Grandma (Martha E) JOHNSTON. According, to Belle's death certificate she had lived in Arizona for 17 years and there would indicate they moved to Arizona about 1901. I would appreciate any additional info you can provide on the BARRINGER family line that you have as well as ANSLEY cousins. Are you a direct descendant of the ANSLEY-BARRINGER family line. If so, do you mind providing more info on this line. If you are not a direct descendant of this line, do you have any contacts within this family line? And would be willing to forward my e-addy (or snail addy if needed) to them and ask them to contact me?
I also, have a copy of a cemetery survey completed about 1997 for Derden cemetery in Hill county, Texas. This is the cemetery where "A H" JOHNSTON is buried, as well as Cinthia Jane, "Mattie" and Ferdinand MOULDER, and other MOULDER descendants are buried. We also believe that Martha E, is buried next to him, but without a headstone. And mostly likely their youngest son, William A JOHNSTON, also without a headstone, which I am still attempting to verify.
However, on the opposite is a headstone of Mrs. BARRINGER. [I will have to locate book for specifics and e-mail later, (dob abt 1820)]. There are no other BARRINGER listed within cemetery survey. I do believe this may have been family connected, possibly the mother-in-law of Belle.
Records only reflects Belle's first initial to be "C" which another cousin believes was Clara Belle or Clara Bellah.
I have not found any info as to the parents of Alfred H JOHNSON. The1900 Census - Hill county reflects a brother, Benjamin (M ?), whom was divorced in 1900.
I do have been able to trace Belle's mother, Martha E CANTRELL, only family records show last name of CANTRELL. Nor have been able to locate a record of their marriage. The 1900 Census reflects she had 4 children, all living. Therefore, her children would have been "Belle" CB (1864); "Sallie" Sarah A (1868); Benjamin Lester (1872); and "Willie" William A (1875).
I have record of his previous marriage to Mary Arenia SMITH (1824 - ?) and some of her family line. I believe that she would have passed after the birth of "Mattie" Martha Adeline JOHNSON / JOHNSTON (1862). I believe that she was buried in Gilmer county, Georgia in the same cemetery as her father. However, I have been told many of Georgia cemeteries have unmarked graves in part due to the Civil War. If you wish additional info on this her family line, please me know.
Since Alfred was about 23½ years when he married Mary Arenia, it could be possible he could have another family prior to this marriage in 1842.
I have traced several of Belle's siblings family lines and will be willing to share info if you have any interest. Please advise.
I am looking forward in hearing from you. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
