James Johnson, Jr. married Dosia Ray and they had
a daughter, Nancy Angelina Johnson who married James Gist Prince and they had
a son, Clarence Rhett Prince who married Alice Ella Briggs and they had
a son, Franklin Drayton Prince who married Mary "Mollie" Cynthia Bain and they had
a son, Julian Rhett Prince who married Clara Marie Wilder and they had
a daughter, Peggy who is Stan's mother

James "Jimmie" Johnson, Jr. was born about 1790 in South Carolina to James Johnson, Sr. and Sally ?. He married Dosia Ray. Dosia Ray was born about 1798 in Union County, SC to William Ray ( DOB about 1773 in Union County, SC; DOD 7/1/1844 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC) and Margaret Alexander (DOB about 1775 in Wilkes County, NC; DOD about 1848 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC).

James Johnson, Jr. and Dosia Ray had 5 children that I know of:
1) Nancy Angelina Johnson (DOB 4/10/1835 in Union County, SC; DOD 6/8/1915 in Union County, SC) married James Gist Prince, Sr. in 1853 in Union County, SC. After James Gist Prince died, she remarried to Henry Burnett between 1870-1880 in Union County, SC. She is buried between her husbands in Padgett's Creek Baptist Church cemetery, Cross Keys, Union County, SC.

2) Paulina Johnson (DOB about 1838 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC; DOD 3/7/1908 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC) married ? Burnett in Union County, SC. She and Nancy married brothers. They are buried in Padgett's Creek Baptist Church cemetery, Cross Keys, Union County, SC.

3) James Johnson, II (DOB ? in Union County, SC; DOD ? in ? ) married ?

4) William A. Johnson (DOB ? in Union County, SC; DOD ? in ? ) married ?

5) Irena Johnson (DOB ? in Union County, SC; DOD ? in ?) married Noah Barnett

Dosia Ray died before 1844 in Union County, SC and is buried at Padgett's Creek Baptist Church cemetery, Cross Keys, Union County, SC.

According to the 1850 U.S. Census of Union County, SC James Johnson, Jr. was 60 years old and his wife, Sarah, was 34. So he must have married again. There is a 5 year old son listed so it's possible that he married soon after Dosia died and they had a son that was 5 yrs old by the 1850 Census. He was listed as a Farmer.

In the 1860 U.S. Census of Cross Keys, Union County, SC (pg 21, Line 4) James Johnson, Jr. was listed as 70 years old and his wife, Sarah, was 43. He had $1,000 worth of real estate value and $200 in personal estate value.

In the 1870 U.S. Census of Cross Keys, Union County, SC (Series M593, Roll 1510, stamped page 359, pg 21, Line 27) James Johnson, Jr. was listed as 80 years old and his wife, Sarah, was 53. He owns $480 worth of real estate value and $0 in personal estate value. It says he could not read & write.
