      Andover Townsman Historical Series

      written by Charlotte Helen Abbott

      The following three articles appeared in a series of articles in the Andover Townsman Newspaper. They detail historical information about John Johnson and his family, where they came from, who they married, and where they lived. I have transcribed them as they appeared in the paper but do not vouch for the accuracy of her research.
      Appeared in the Andover Townsman Saturday September 4, 1896

      While the line of (2) Thomas was growing up over the Shawshin, the children of (2) Stephen, (2) William and the little band of (2) Timothy and Rebecca were flitting back and forth across the Merrimack, mixing up with the Charlestown Johnson's from a (1) William pioneer on the Mystic. It is not easy to follow the fortunes of our (2) William of Andover, who married Sarah Lovejoy, daughter of John, and named a son and grandson Caleb, the only one of them all who remembers the dead Caleb of John Osgood's service. He may have been a young brother of William's apprenticed to Osgood before (1) John Johnson came here to settle. William, however, names his eldest girl Susanna which indicates a connection with the wife of (1) John. Poor Sarah Lovejoy lived to see Susanna married to Thomas Carrier, Jr., Mehitabel well placed with Hamboro Blunt, then succumbed to the dread foe of cancer that seemed unconquerable in the early days. Sergeant William takes a widow Turner from Charlestown, son Caleb marrying the step-sister Mary, and in a year both mother and daughter find the pioneer life of Andover too hard. Caleb goes for Lydia Lovejoy to replace this great loss, and brother Ben with a Susanna moves away to Sheepscot, Maine, and if his children returned to this region they will perhaps be found in Methuen. Of the descendants of (2) Stephen through Francis and Sarah Hawkes, (4) Francis and Hannah Goodwin we had (5) Ebenezer and (5) Stephen; brother Ben dying childless gave them a good start with a blacksmith shop. (6) Ebenezer and Elinor Edmands had a large family, who in the beginning of 1800 stated off in one line from William in one family and John in another. The Johnson's of the North Parish list, Thomas, Wm. H. and Wm. R. may be found in this line of descent. Charles H. and Joseph Johnson of the South parish also may be able to lay claim to this line, as there is no place found for them in that of (2) Timothy as far as I have gone in sorting the grandfathers.
