Topic: Thomas 'Tommie' Johnson, b. abt. 1918-19
From: Judith Williams
Date: Saturday, December 20, 2003 08:24 PM

Seeking birth and death information about Thomas "Tommie" Johnson, born to Rathburn (Rothburn) and Sarah "Sallie" Williams Johnson about 1918 or 1919, probably in Baxter Springs (Cherokee County) area. My mother Luceal was born in 1904 in Baxter Springs and described rocking her sick little brother who died about age 2 years from "consumption". My mother said he was born "after Gladys" who was born in 1917. The family moved away from Kansas in 1919, first to Missouri, then to Montana. At most a search could cover 1904--1919. The children born in the Kansas area were Luceal, Madlean, Martha, Gladys, and Thomas, Ellonia. Would appreciate your help in laying this mystery to rest, including where Tommie might be buried if you can locate any records on the family.
