Wives: Adelia "Deally" Pearson and Ellen Walker

William Johnson married Adelia "Deally" Pearson about 1873. She is presumed dead about 1891. Will married Ellen Walker about 1903. In the 1920 census her children are living with different family members. She is presumed dead or remarried.

Children:

The names of the children have appeared differently in the census and enumeration at school. Dates varied especially at the school level. Sometimes people other than the parent would register children so multiple documents have to be considered in older records.
