Johnson, John

Johnson, John, under Sullivan’s command. Killed as were his two sons, although I do not know their names. Suspect one may have been Samuel. John Johnson and his 3 sons had left Londonderry, Ulster, Ireland, because the English taxes had ruined their linen trade. In America, they had settled in the Mohawk Valley. John Johnson’s daughter, Elizabeth, married William Young in Northern Ireland. They did not emigrate to Aamerica until after the Revolution in 1790. I have considerable information on the descendants of William Young, but need more on the Johnsons.
