Above all genealogy is a rational pursuit, a logical puzzle. Given that certain things can go together only in one way (each person has 1 father and 1 mother; a name mentioned in a record can only refer to 1 individual), success must be judged first by consistency and then by evidence. Genealogy is like Arithmetic in that way: consistent but never complete. There are genealogical truths that can never be proven, yet remain true.

  • Occupation: Cooper (Infirm) 1851 5
  • Note:
    Richard Smy practiced cooperage in New York City before coming to New Brunswick. He was granted Lot 1 Block M Bulkley's Division in St Andrews, on the northeast corner of Adolphus and Carleton streets. He did not sell this lot until 1819, 5 years before his death. Was this where his cooperage was located? Smy bought two other town lots, one in 1786 and another in 1804. Was his place of business on either of these spots?

    Both of his sons Richard and Thomas learned the trade as well. Thomas died between the 1845 assessment and the 1851 census. Richard Junior lived until 1856. In the 1851 census the only other cooper in the parish of St Andrews was Samuel Johnson.

    Did Samuel Johnson work for the Smys? Perhaps while other farmer went into the woods to lumber in the winter, Samuel went to Town to work in Smy's cooperage?

    Perhaps Samuel Johnson was associated with Leonard Bartlett's mill in Waweig.

    There is a tangible link between Samuel Johnson and Richard Smy. Richard Smy and Mary Greenlaw had a son Richard born in 1828. Mary Greenlaw was one of the sisters of Joanna Greenlaw, Samuel Johnson's last wife.

    Why didn't Samuel or his sons petition for land? One of the requirements for a grant was to be a British subject. Samuel was certainly not. In fact there is not even any record of him taking the oath after settling in New Brunswick soon before the War of 1812. George may not have been New Brunswick born after all, if he was indeed the son of Samuel Johnson and Mary Glidden counted in the 1800 census. Furthermore, Samuel provided George and Leonard each with part of his land in Waweig, so they would not need to petition for land.

  • Note:
    Samuel Johnson from Whitefield is Samuel Johnson of Waweig.

    1. Direct evidence
    None

    2. Circumstantial evidence
    Numerous others from Balltown and Lincoln County, Maine:
    James Stinson m Margaret Stewart (whose daughter married Jonathan Greenlaw) were Loyalists from Georgetown, Lincoln/Sagadahoc, ME.
    John Bamford m Mary Averill Balltown to St David c 1800.
    Mary Woodbridge Ayer m Ebenezer Smith Balltown to St David 1803.
    Michael Reid m Catherine Ludwig Waldoboro to St David 1804.
    Leavitt Vining Balltown to St George 1805.
    Jacob Martin Carlow also lived in St Andrews. He and siblings were born in Balltown in the 1790s. His father Martin Carlow was a Loyalist granted land in Upper Mills. Returned to Maine by 1790. In Lubec in 1820. Children in St Andrews by 1805.
    Caleb Bartlett Balltown to St Andrews 1806.
    James Hall Nobleboro to St George 1809.
    David Leighton Newcastle to St David 1809.
    David Peaslee Whitefield to St George 1809
    Israel Glidden Patricktown to Charlotte County 1809. Son of Benjamin Glidden who is the brother of Mary Glidden m Samuel Johnson
    Charles Glidden sa distant Glidden relative lived in Charlotte County for a while. Andrew Glidden is another brother of Mary Glidden.
    John Leeman Wiscasset to St Stephen and West Isles 1811
    Was Ann Danford related to the Danfords of Wiscasset? Paul Danford of Calais was probably her father.
    Jeremiah Dow Whitefield to St Andrews after 1822.

    Samuel Johnson married Mary Glidden as a baptist. Samuel Johnson married Joanna Greenlaw as a Baptist.

    Grandpa Oscar Johnson claimed his great-great grandmother was a Mic-Maq Indian Princess. As it happens, if Samuel Johnson was the son of Samuel Johnson and Lydia Remick, Lydia Remick Johnson would be his great-great grandmother. Lydia Remick was only one of two Remicks to be found in 18th Century Lincoln County, Maine. They other was William Remick who has been supposed to be Indian. It is the most tenuous of connections, but it is possible that Lydia was related to William and they were both Indian.

    The Bartlet family settled on the lots adjacent to Samuel in Waweig. They built a sawmill and grist mill there. Caleb Bartlett Jr was a witness in a deed for land in Balltown sold by Samuel Johnson Sr.

    Thomas Evans, brother of Joseph Evans who married Mary Jane Johnson, was a cooper, according to the 1860 census. It is supposed that Mary Jane Johnson was a daughter of Samuel Johnson and Lydia Remick.

    3. Consistency
    Both Samuel Johnsons were born in Maine around 1775.
    Samuel Johnson of Whitefield had a son born before 1800. Samuel Johnson of Waweig's son George was born about 1799.
    The last record of Samuel Johnson in Whitefield was in 1801. The first record of Samuel Johnson in New Brunswick is 1804.

    4. Inconsistency

    The Memorial of Ebenezer Greenlaw
    humbly sheweth
    That your Memorialist having faithfully served His Majesty in the Neighborhood of Penobscot during the late War, removed with the Setlers to Saint Andrews, and received a Grant of Lot number Sixty nine on the eastern Side of Waughweig Stream, upon which there not being a Sufficient Quantity of good Land for Cultivation, your Memorialists was constrained to purchase a more eligible Spot in the neighborhood of Saint Andrews, whereon he has Supported and brought up a numerous family that his present Lot being confined in its Limits, he wishes to improve upon his Lot at Waughweig, but from the bad Quality of that Lot cannot carry his Wishes into their full effect.

    Your Memorialist begs leave to observe that on the northern side of his said lot there is another Lot number Seventy which is ungranted and vacant, and would use in possession of your Memorialist materially assist him in making a Settlement for his Children. He therefore humbly requests that your Excellency will be pleased to consider his Situation, and to direct that the Said Lot number Seventy may be granted to him, as a Sufficient Cultivation cannot be made on either of the Said Lots for the Support of a large family, and if united would fully answer the purpose.
    And your Memorialist as in duty bound will ever pray

    Year Rate
    1801 $4.38

    $100 selling land in Balltown 1801
    30 pounds buying land in St Andrews 1804
    $100 would be about 23 pounds. So it is possible that Samuel Johnson had a considerable amount of money in his pocket when he arrived in New Brunswick, considerable enough to nearly purchase the 200 acres in Waweig from Ebenezer Greenlaw.

      1791 marriage act New Brunswick

      http://webhome.idirect.com/~cpwalsh/nb/vitalstats.htm
      The marriage act of 1791 authorized five types of officials to perform marriages:

      1. Church of England clergy (all cases).
      2. Justices of the Peace (if no Church of England clergy were available).
      3. Church of Scotland clergy (if both parties to the marriage were members of the Church of Scotland).
      4. Roman Catholic clergy (if both parties were Catholic).
      5. Quaker officials (if both parties were Quaker).

      http://genealogyfirst.ca/resources/primary-sources/parish/marriage
      In 1791 the first New Brunswick act to regulate marriage and divorce was passed. An Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian or Quaker clergyman could marry a man and woman over the age of 21, or with parental consent if younger, after banns were published in the parish for three consecutive weeks. In cases where the banns were not published or if the clergyman did not know both parties involved, a marriage license and bond was required. When the marriage legislation was amended in 1834, Baptist and Methodist clergy received the right to perform marriages.

      http://www.familyhistoryalive.com/New-Brunswick-Vital-Records--Births-Marriages-Deaths.html
      In 1812, a new Act seeking to improve marriage registration was passed. In addition to requiring all clergymen performing marriages (except for Quakers), as well as the Justices of the Peace, to send certificates of marriage to the county Clerk of the Peace, it set out detailed requirements with respect to the contents of the marriage certificates and the format of the County Marriage Register.
