    Notes 
    • (1) Robert R. Johns <http://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com>:

      The information contained in this family page of Jesse Johns is based on the best available documentation at this time [February 14, 1996]. The number and sex of the children accounted for in this page is based on the 1810 US census of Newberry District, SC, where Jesse Johns appeared on page 116 with four male children and three female children. Thomas Johns was found in the 1820 US census of Union District on page 153 one line above Jesse Johns on the same page. William Johns was identified as a son of Jesse by a deed in which Jesse granted title to him of five negro slaves plus all of his personal property. Deed signed by Jesse January 24, 1809 and recorded 25 May 1809 in Union District deed book "I" pages 621 & 622, witnessed by Thos. H. Word Junr. S. A. C. Sims, Nathan Sims. Since two of the male children enumerated in the 1810 census were under ten it was necessary to add one male child unknown. It also appears that there is too much space between some of the children born before 1800 and the family move to Newberry Co., SC. This could be accounted for by the marriage of some older female children prior to the 1810 census. At this time the true number and proper sequence of birth of the children is not determined. It should be noted, of most importance, that there is no female enumerated in the proper age category for Lucy, which would be 45 and over. It would certainly appear that Lucy had died before the census of 1810. It is also important to note that Jesse did not appear again in the census after 1820. It appears that Jesse must have died after the 1820 census of Union. Some time after Jesse's death it is believed that Thomas, his wife Mary and their first child James M. Johns departed for TN. See family group for Thomas.

      (2) A household headed by Jesse JOHNS is listed in the 1810 census of Newberry District, SC.

      Listed in Jesse's household are 2 free white males under 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 16 years of age; 1 free white male between 16 and 26 years of age; 1 free white male over 45 years of age; 1 free white female under 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 16 years of age; and 1 free white female between 16 and 26 years of age.

      Assuming that Jesse is the free white male listed in the 1810 census as then being over 45 years of age, he would have been born before 1765, according to the 1810 census.

      No female listed in Jesse's household in the 1810 census seems to have then been old enough to have been Jesse's wife.

      Assuming that the other persons in Jesse's household are children of Jesse, those children would have consisted of four sons (one of which sons would have been born between 1784 and 1794, one of which sons would have been born between 1794 and 1800, and two of which sons would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1810 census) and three daughters (one of which daughters would have been born between 1784 and 1794, one of which daughters would have been born between 1794 and 1800, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census).

      (3) A household consisting of Jesse JOHNS is listed in the 1820 census of Union District, SC.

      Listed in Jesse's household is 1 free white male over 45 years of age.

      Since only one person is listed in Jesse's household, he must be the free white male listed in the 1820 census as then being over 45 years of age. He was born before 1775, according to the 1820 census.
