Johnson - Holden Families of Butler County, Ohio
By Dee Johnson Rettig - March 2007
My name is Dee (Doris I. JOHNSON) Rettig. I have been researching my ancestors and have discovered that my Great-Grandparents, lived and died in Middletown, Butler Co., Ohio. Their names were Alexander and Elizabeth (WHISMAN) JOHNSON.
My GGrandfather was born in Ashe Co., N. Carolins and GGrandmother was born in Owsley, Kentucky. If you have any information on them, I would greatly appreciate it and also, if you need more information. ie; parents, children, etc., please contact me. Thank you. Please let me know if you put these photos on your website. BTW, the lady who works at the Woodside Cemetery - (Betty, I believe her name is), where they are interred, was kind enough to take these photos, scan them and email them to me! :)
Oh, also, My GG-Grdparents on my Mother's side - Patrick and Margaret Holden, both from Ireland, were know to have resided in Butler Co. also. They were found in Butler Co., Ohio in the 1880 Census, in Union Twnsp..
They had 3 children, one, was my GGrdfather - James (b- 1870); the others were Rosella b(1872) and Mary A. (b 1878).
Love & Abundant Blessings,
