James Jackson Johns and Ellen Moore Parentage Research Report

I’ve been working on trying to answer the question about who are the parents of James Jackson Johns and Ellen Moore. I didn’t have a name for the parents of Ellen Moore, who is my third great grandmother, and reportedly one of the ancestors with Native American ancestry. James Jackson Johns, my third great grandfather, is often listed as the youngest son of Bartlett C. Johns, but I didn’t have anything to substantively prove that fact. So I set out to see what I could find in order to definitively prove who were their parents.

My research document is attached here, along with images of the records I used in this research.

The first part of the Johns family that I am going to start looking at this fall is James Jackson Johns and his wife, Ellender Cornelia Moore.  Ellen was born on October 13, 1839 in Coweta County, Georgia. Coweta County was formed in 1826 from lands originally belonging to the Creek Nation, relinquished to the US government as a part of the 1825 Treaty of Indian Springs.
