+6 votes
I'm looking for John S Johnson born Dec 1854 in pa and his wife, Anna L Johnson born about 1856-57 in nj.  They had 2 children, Aaron S, born March 1876, death March 1920 in Trenton, Mercer, New Jersey.  His brother, Joseph Johnson was born about 1878 in nj also.  According to Aaron's obituary, Joseph was the only living relative in 1920.  His home was in Yardville.  If anyone can help I would really appreciate it as they are my great and great, great grandparents.  I have been looking for information since January.

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put in his name and date of birth and NJ

you will see a few Aarons. Then after you look at those go back and put his spouse name and look again.

Each time you put in different details you will get different results.

I have searched every way I can think of.  Both ancestry and family search. This search hasn't been easy because I don't know Anna's madian name.  There are so many Johnson's and they both have common names.

So, you have this one? It show Anna L age and place of birth?

Yes thanks, I have all of this information.
What I did was click the above Anna L and put her name in only and her date of birth and NJ and I see there are a number of choices. She was born in 1857 in NJ as Anna L

that I why I suggested going on ancestor but I see you have already done this.
I went to Trenton to the archives building to look up Aaron's birth record.  That too says Anna L Johnson.  I made a copy of his death record hoping I would find it there but his wife didn't know her madian name.  I think she died very young because I only find her in early census.  As far as I know she only had 2 children.  My grandmother passed away in 1997, my father in 1980 and his brother and sisters have no idea what her name was.

This is off myheritage.com I wonder if they have her last name?

I'm not sure if he is the right John S Johnson.  I know there is another John S and Anna in Cumberland County, New Jersey.  Also, Aarons obituary said his only family member he had left in 1920 was his brother Joseph.
