    Hi Jordan,

    Did you ever figure out how “Billy Johnson” (obit in Swan Johnson book) is related? I believe he is Lena (Johnson) Schlichtemeier’s brother…See 1900 US Census. Other census’ show Billy’s name as John William Johnson. There is a John W. Johnson listed as brother. Their father is a William Johnson, born Aug 1854 in Sweden (widower in 1900 census). Date could make him a younger brother of Swan’s.

    Do you have any further info?

    • Sorry I haven’t responded previously. I have to admit that I wasn’t really looking at the comments and finding the ones that were not spam!

      Billy Johnson, whose obit was included at the back of the Swan Johnson book is indeed Lena Johnson Schlichtemeier’s brother, formally John William Johnson. In the chapter on the Children of Thilda Johnson:

      Lena writes:

      “John William (Billie), after graduating from high school at Genoa, Nebraska, attended Shurtliff Collage at Alton, Illinois, one year, and later took a business course at Lincoln, Nebraska, Business College. He took a position with the Bank of Commerce at Lincoln, Nebraska. In 1908 he accepted a position as bookkeeper with the Webel Commercial Company at Casper, Wyoming, later becoming a partner in the Campbell-Johnson Clothing Company.

      “In August 1919, he was married in Rockport, New York, to Marguerite Barkley, a teacher in the Casper, Wyoming schools. Three children were born to them, Sybil Barkley on July 20, 1920; Barbara Jane on January 8, 1924; and Sarah Marguerite on July 12, 1934.

      “Billy served the people as a State Representative two terms and as State Senator two terms. He is now in the clothing business for himself in Casper, Wyoming.”

      In the obituary, there are many corroborating details, including the marriage to Marguerite Barkley in 1919 in New York (though one says “Brockport” and the other “Rockport”), the children, the Campbell-Johnson Clothing Company, and the names of children.

      (By the way, the marriage was in Brockport, Monroe Co., NY. A digital image of the record is at: .)

  2. I am trying to get all my DD 214’s together from all my military time I need to get documentation from my Naval Reserve time. My recall time from September 11 and my discharge after recall.

  4. I have read your information on your blog concerning the Grahams and the Armstrongs. You mention on Betsey Graham’s page that she married Robert Armstrong. You noted there was a chancery suit involving Armstrongs and Grahams. I am wondering if you have a copy of the court records. I would like to get a copy of the court records and there was no citation for the court case. If you don’t have a copy of the case do you at least have the citation for the record?

    Thanks, Sharlene Miller, CG

    • This is a transcription of a book by David Graham, “History of the Graham Family” from 1899. I do not know specifically what court records he was referring to.
