Looking for brick wall help on Thomas Johnson parents

0 votes
77 views
Need some suggestions on where else I can look.  I have gone with the parents listed on Thomas's death certificate, George E and Amanda, but I am not confident  because it was filled out by one of his daughters who was adopted out at birth and re-connected with shortly before his death.

I also have handwritten and typed family papers from one of his Grandchildren and Thomas's photo album.   The papers list his parents as Charles Johnson and Sarah Buckner Johnson who was said to have lived to 101..  One of the pictures has Thomas, his daughter and her baby as well as Charles Johnson.   I can't tell if he is old enough to be father or brother.   The 1880 Census from Thomas lists both parents born in Indiana.  Apparently his birth records were destroyed in a fire.

Mom's DNA has Scandanavian roots which I think are from the Johnson line since I have her other lines accounted for.

Any suggestions or tips?   Thanks for any help you could offer, Shelly

Provide citations for the records you're using as sources.  This is not a citation: 1920 census.  This is a citation:"United States Census, 1920," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MN54-F4V : accessed 15 Aug 2014), Arthur V Hickey in household of James P Hickey, Civil District 2, Hamilton, Tennessee, United States; citing sheet 20A, family 394, NARA microfilm publication T625, FHL microfilm 1821743.

That's an easy one from Family Search but you'll find a similar one on the other sites as well.  Best of luck!
