I have been trying to find the parents of Henry Johnson (abt. 1851 - abt. 1916) [[Johnson-72323|Henry Johnson]]. His only child, Gwendoline (Johnson) Davis, was the mother of Viola Irene (Davis) Desmond (1914 - 1965). Viola Desmond played an important role as a human rights advocate in Canada. Viola's grandfather Henry Johnson's middle name might be Walter. I cannot find anything on Henry's parents. I need help with this brick wall.

I was able to connect Viola Irene (Davis) Desmond (1914 - 1965) to the WikiTree Global Tree through the marriage of one of her aunts or uncles. We do not have a lot of information about Viola Desmond's ancestors. I am asking for help in finding her ancestors. That is why I am searching for the parents of her grandfather.

I am having trouble reading the document. I cannot see the parents' names. I do not have access to Ancestry.com. If anyone could help me with the names of Henry's parents, I would appreciate it.
It shows Henry and Susan with a young William, so I am saying it is possible he had a son.
