2907 JOHN SMITH, farmer, Section 18, P. O. Burlingame, was born in Tioga County, Pa., July 31, 1819. Son of John Smith and Amy Thornton. Soon after his birth his father moved to Spring Mills, Allegany (sic) Co., N. Y., where Mr. Smith grew to manhood, receiving such education as the common schools afforded. In that new country, with saw and ax, he began to carve out the future of his life work. After having lived for a time in Mercer County, Pa., he came to Kansas in 1855 and settled in Burlingame Township, where he pre-empted a home on the lonely prairie, and endured unusual hardships. The first winter the snow was two feet deep, the weather extremely cold and his shanty poor. He would have had a hard time even had he been well, and his wife had to cut and carry the wood, and thus do her own work and that of a man's. His team died and he was left destitute, but it was not always to be so. He now rejoices in the possession of a comfortable home and the privileges of civilization. He was united in marriage in Venango County, Pa., July 7, 1846, to Miss Eliza, daughter of Robert Graham, Esq., and Margaret Gordon Graham. They have had six children, William H., Robert, Ezra, Mary, Frank and Lizzie J. Robert and Ezra are dead. Mr. Smith has been Justice of the Peace for ten years. He is a member of the Methodist Church. Family F8439

Hewas one of the enterprising, industrious citizens of the county, andspared no pains to give his children a good education. He served many years as justice of the peace, and did a great deal toward theadvancement of the country. He died in July, 1860 and was one of thefew who paid any attention to education. His father, John Byrd, was born in Maryland, and at the age of twenty had served five years'apprenticeship at the carpenter's trade.

Hethen purchased the survey already mentioned, where he lived about twoyears. He then went to Washington County, where he died, in 1840, atthe age of eighty-six.

The mother of John T. was born near Louis-ville, Ky., in 1799 and when four years of age came with her parentsto what is now Jefferson County, and there died in 1864. Her father,Benjamin Johnston, settled on Sandy Creek, where he passed his lastdays.

2917 Jonathan Smith b 27 Oct 1692 listed as son of John Smith m Grace Winston (George Smith line) in "Families of Ancient New Haven Vol VII", p 1620 Smith, Jonathan (I33964)
2918 Jonathan Smith, son of Ebenezer Smith and Sarah Cook, was born in 1705, in Suffield, Connecticut. Jonathan married Susanna Johnson, daughter of John Johnson and Mary Ramsey in 1727. Susanna was born in 1706, in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Jonathan and Susanna lived in Suffield, Connecticut.

Captain John Johnson, Susanna?s Great Grandfather, was born about 1590 in England. John married Mary Heath, daughter of William A. Heath and Agnes Cheney, in 1613, in Ware, Hertfordshire, England. Mary was born in 1600, in Ware, Hertfordshire, England. This "Puritan" immigrant ancestor and the first member of the Johnson family in America came from Wilmington Parish, county Kent, England with his wife Mary and five children with the Winthrop Fleet. All of his brothers immigrated to America with the exception of Abraham who remained in England. The fleet sailed from London March 1, 1630. John Johnson, with his family, arrived aboard the ARBELLA ? the flagship of the Winthrop Fleet landing at Salem Massachusetts on June 14, 1630 ten weeks later.

Capt. John Johnson settled in Roxbury, and was appointed Constable in 1630. He and his son-in-law Richard Mowry, were made Freeman in 1631. He owned and operated a tavern or "ordinary" in Roxbury.

Capt. John Johnson was active in the business of the Colony, as Juryman, serving on Committees, as Surveyor laying out the bounds of Towns around Boston. In 1634 John Johnson and Richard Dumer were ordered to build a bridge across Muddy River. Five towns were to contribute to the cost. In 1636 he was chosen one of a Committee to determine the valuation of the several towns. In 1637 he was chosen one of the Deputies to levy on the towns for raising fifty men to send against the Pequots. He was also chosen Surveyor General, an office, which at that time, included the care of the stock of arms and the ammunition of the Colony. An interesting account of the burning of his house, with the Colony's stock of powder, also the Town Records of Roxbury, of which he was Town Clerk, is given in Governor Winthrop's History, also in Drake's History of Roxbury. He was chosen Deputy to the House of Deputies to represent Roxbury in 1634, the first year of that Assembly; and was chosen for twenty-one years afterward, nearly all consecutively. He was also one of the founders of the First Church of Roxbury and, together with his sons Isaac and Humphrey, was an original donor to the Free School in Roxbury.

Captain John Johnson was the first Clerk of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery. His son, Isaac, was its Captain and leader at one time. It is the oldest military organization in this country, founded March 13, 1638, and which still proudly maintains its existence. Upon the rolls of its members are to be seen the names of men who in their day, through the entire history of Massachusetts, were foremost in peace and war, and who occupied the highest place in science, art, and literature, and in social, political and military life. At no time could any but a distinguished citizen have become a member of its society."

Late in his life, John Johnson was granted one thousand acres of land in consideration of his great service to the Colony.

When the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony authorized the minting of the now famous "Pine Tree Shilling," Edward Johnson, Thomas Clark, and John Johnson as members were charged with selecting the mint master, John Hull, and supervising the operation to insure the fineness of the silver content. His house and buildings were destroyed by fire in August 1645, caused by the explosion of seventeen barrels of his colony's gunpowder, which destroyed many arms and most of the towns, first records. In 1655, he and others were granted permission to "set down" (erect) a gristmill.

As an addenda of possible family interest regarding the official duties of John Johnson in connection with the historic case of Anne Huchinson. Anne Huchinson, the religious dissenter of the time, are the following: She had publicly challenged the Puritan religious and political principles of the Colony and was subsequently tried, banished and migrated to Rhode Island.

When Anne Hutchinson was taken into custody, the Court ordered that the arms of her adherents be delivered to the custody of Captain John Johnson and the town of Roxbury be required to take orders for their custody and any charges that might arise be defrayed to her husband. After her court trial and sentence of banishment by the Massachusetts Bay Colony, she was restricted from November 1636 to April 1637 to the home of Joseph Weld. Her stay in Weld's home apparently was not too oppressive, because she stated "that except for the fact that she must have a companion when she went for a walk, she would have thought herself an honored guest in the house." Weld was an important man in the Colony and the father of Mary (Weld) Harris whose daughter Mary married Isaac Johnson, Jr., a grandson of John Johnson.

Captain John Johnson died in 1659, in Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts, aged 69. Mary died in 1655, in Roxbury, Massachusetts, aged 55.

Twelve Presidents of the United States number among his descendants. The list of names of his other descendants who held prominent military, civic, social, literary, and educational offices in service of this country would number in the thousands.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd U.S. President

James Schoolcraft Sherman, 27th U.S. Vice President
