Ann (Battles) Johnson (abt. 1815 - aft. 1852)

+3 votes

She is the wife of William Tiler "The Barber of Natchez" Johnson. Together they had 11 children however only 10 I’ve been able to identify in the 1860 census (9 of them) the NPS states 10. She was a widow after her husband William was killed and he became the subject of one of the most famous trials in Mississippi history. We need help with finding her exact date of birth and death. Does she have a cemetery or memorial? 

Thank you

Also is Eugenia or Eugene her son or daughter? 1860 census shows female and 1870 as male who is a blacksmith?

Ann's mother, Harriet Battles, was living with her per the 1850 US Census.  After Ann's death, Harriet lived with Ann's children per the 1870 US Census.  Harriet made a Will (in 1866) that left her possessions to her daughter, Ann Johnson, and upon Ann's death to Ann's five daughters, Anna, Catherine, Eugenia, Alice, Josephina Johnson. Harriet died in 1874.

This says she died in 1866, you may already have this?

If you can get into the mississippi deaths and burials records you might find more information.  It is interesting that her husband is buried with his mother and no record of Ann on the headstone??  Unless she is there and just not on the headstone or remarried?

Good luck

I didn’t see this but it definitely appears she passed in 1866yes Still trying to find her burial and cemetery location or a memorial. This helps 

Thank you

Here is an Administratrix Notice from the Weekly Democrat (Natchez, Mississippi) on April, 1867, that recites that letters of administration were granted in the November, 1867, probate court term.
