Stumped! My 3rd G-Grandmother was a Sarah J. Balkcum.  I know this from family records and my own research.  She married Everett Johnson...verified.  I cannot find a single record of her before she was married.  I find lots of people with that last name in the area but no record of her.  Any suggestions?

Have you seen this document - http://www.ncgenweb.us/bladen/vrecords_dir/books/johnsonfamilyhistory.pdf?  

I didn't see your family and I am sure that is has all of the faults that these types of things tend to have, but someone made a real effort to outline the Johnson family in that area.

Thank you!  I have seen this document.  I read it again and many of the names appear as common ancestors when I do a DNA ancestor search on Ancestry.  However, I have not been able to find a connection.   Frustrating!
