Henry died at Mulberry, Hancock Co., Tennessee, USA and was buried at Mulberry, Hancock Co., Tennessee, USA.     More Tennessee Johns families. Could they have been of the Thomas line too.
Notes for Henry JOHNS: (There were clearly two Henry Johnses in the Grainger, Hawkins and Hancock Co. areas of East Tennessee during the years 1800 - 1830)   One, the ancestor of Martha Ann Fetch. She writes the following regarding the Henry Johns of the 1830 Grainger Co. Census.

I was just doing some research and looking at different sites. You all with sites have done some great work. But...I noticed that the Grainger County, TN Henry Johns (mine) is still listed on some of the web pages as the father of Rial Johns. I believe I provided enough proof that it was MY Henry Johns that was in Grainger County, TN (1830 census). I believe Rial's father died and is buried in Hancock County, TN. My Henry Johns settled in Indiana, after leaving TN ca 1831. I can also account for the children on the 1830 census. 2 males 10 to 15 (Ezra b. 1816 and Matthew b. 1817); 1 male 50 to 60 (Henry born 1773); 1 female 15 to 20 (Pricilla b. 1811) and 1 female 40 to 50 (Elizabeth b. 1784). Elizabeth's mother also left deed of gifts to her grandchildren, which are on record in Grainger County, TN. I have sent a few of you copies of a 1795 Hawkins County deed for a Henry Johns. This seems to be Rial's father!! If anyone else is interested in this deed, please let me know. I made several copies of it and can do more if I do not have enough. Do you all think you could correct your web pages? I would greatly appreciate it. We are trying to make and leave an accurate record of our families for OUR descendants. WE are all trying to work together, to make the JOHNS record a correct and true one, aren't we? I truly hope so. Thanks much, Martha Ann

Henry, father of Rial had moved from Hawkins Co. to "Johns Springs" in Kentucky and then back to Mulberry Gap where he purchased land.   The association between the Johns Greenes and Trent families continued in Hancock Co., Tennessee where Rial Johns married Martha Alice Slaton, daughter of Capt. John Slaton. (Five of Capt. John Slaton's children married into the Jerimiah Greene family of Rowan Co., NC, one of Jerimiah's daughters married William D. Trent, brother to Alexander Trent from Cumberland Co., VA)  A Henry was evidently in Hawkins County before Tennessee baecame a State. This deed of February 28, 1795 with Joel Gillenwaters (which I have some information on) attests to that fact.  I am not at all sure that this was Henry father of Rial Johns.
Marshall Duncan was at that time living next to Henry Johns of the 1795 deed.   Marshall had married Sarah Johns (probably a sister to this Henry).   This Henry was married to Nancy Duncan, probably a sister of Marshall.   This family would have been in the Hawkins Co., Territory South of Ohio before 1795 with the Marshall Duncan
family.   Newton Owens contends that Henry, father of Rial did not come to the Hawkins Co. are until around 1810.  Could these be the brothers of Rial?? Any suggestions welcome.  They had the following children: (according to LDS GEDCOM information which is sometimes very suspect)
Frank Johns b. 1779
Henry Johns b. 1809
Joseph Johns b. 1778
John Johns b. 1778
Robert Johns b. 1803
Newton Owens wrote this about Henry Johns, father of RIAL.

Hello Sir:
I was hoping that you can help me on finding out about William Henry Johns born March 25 1855, died September 1942. I think that his birthplace is in Tennessee, and he is buried at Stateline cemetery, just north of Huntsville, Al; on the Tn-Al stateline. William is my great-great grandfather. My great-grand father is Charlie Douglas Johns,  William's son.
I think that William married Mary Ann Hodge(s). It is unknown about the marriage. Charlie Douglas Johns born on Oct 27,1882 died on Jan 6, 1963. He is also buried at Stateline cemetery. Charlie married Lucy Anna Simms. I would like to know about William's parents.....and any other info about this line of Johns... Please help me, I am at a dead end on this. Thank you.   Tony Brazell

RE: Newton P. Owen address
Joe-- The reason I am so exited about your Johns line is that from your positively identified John Rial Johns the line going back is Henry Johns b. 1770 on land that once belonged to Alexander Trent, then Thomas Johns, father of Henry, mentioned in a 1750 will of Alexander Trent, stating that Thomas Johns lived on a 750 acre tract that belonged to Trent and lay in Albemarle and Cumberland Counties VA. Actually Cumberland Co. was formed from Goochland Co. in 1749 and Albemarle Co. was formed from Goochland in 1744. I am sure this Trent land above is the same land that I have found my 4gg grandfather living on in 1784. I have a deed from this Thomas Johns that mentions an adjacent land owner Alexander Trent. This same Thomas Johns I now presume to be my 4gg grandfather. I am now trying to prove up on this supposition. If this is true he is the father of my 3gg grandfather Jesse Johns and I would then have a complete family tree for six generations older than mine. At this time I have perfect documentation through Thomas L Johns my 2gg grand father and substantial documentation for Jesse. If the Thomas Johns of your John Rial Johns ancestry turns out to be the Thomas Johns father of my Jesse Johns, we would be cousins of about the 5th order. I will try to get in touch with Newton Owen by mail. I will certainly keep you informed as this situation develops. Regards, Rob Roy Johns

Sorry I have not got back to you sooner I have been really busy lately. Here is some info I have done up.....
Actually there was only one Wolfe in the family information that I gave you.
My family is a direct decent of your Richard Johns page.
I am going through your website because you have a lot of great information and let me add to some of this for you.
On your site "Descendants of Richard Johns" page if you do a search Rail Johns had a son named William James Johns, you have something about Junius7 after James and I don't know what that is? Do you? But William James you have as being born in Dec of 1838 if you would like the day he was born on the 7th of December. he also Died on January 4th of 1934. His wife's name you just have Eliza M. her full name is Eliza McCauly Wolfe. I don't think there is any relation to the other Wolfe family.
I have lots of information on the line from there, you state that you don't know of any kids for the two of them. They had lots of children and that is the information I had sent you previously. I will resend with dates and birthplaces when I get a chance should be real soon.
Thanks!

I was looking at your gedcom on the Johns faimily. I have a question about Martha Johns and her marriage to James D. B. Debow. Was there a latter marriage to Sam Gordon? I am almost sure that Martha Johns was my Great Grandmother and the daughter of Rial Johns. From family traditions, I am sure that the Martha that was burried at the Drinnon cemetery is my Great Grandmother. I am not challenging this but wondering if there is a second marriage or I have some wrong information. Thanks for all of the information that you have on the internet.

Joe.
Thanks for your reply. I know how it is to be busy. I just retired as of the last day of Dec. and I start part time work this week. I was mostly concerned if there was a second marriage. I am almost sure that my Great-Grandmother Martha Johns was a daughter of Rial. She was married to Sam Gordon and 1880 the were living close to other Johns. My father, Aunts & Uncles were close to some of the Johns. I remember Lee Johns of Morristown as being a cousin and a close friend to the family. I would have to look at the information. I saw a death record of Martha Gordon that died in 1917. I think that her as a daughter of Rial. My father told me of the time she was visiting his family in Hawkins county and got homesick for Handcock county and he went with her part or all of the way to Handcock. She must have lived her last years with her sister family for she is buried in a Drinnon grave yard in the Mulberry community.
I have saw the information of the cousins marrying and may have it. Some of this family has been at least close to my sister. I have not heard anything about the Johns being considered Melungeon. It would not surprise me very much. Some of the Johns families in VA may have been Melungeon or the name was listed as such. My Mathis family was some sort of mixture. In 1850 census in Hawkins county my great-great Grandfather Joel Mathis' wife Martha and the children were listed as mulatto. Joe the only son moved to Hancock before 1880. His oldest daughter was my grandmother that married Lee Gordon the son of Martha & Sam. I am not sure about Sam's parents. I think that he is Sandy that is listed in the 1850 & 60 census. I do have some information but not on the computer. My sister typed it from some of the works of Newton Owens and she added some. I am not sure what she added. I think that you have most of it but I would share. I would need your address.
Just took a look at my information. William and Lee were Brothers.
Thanks again.

Just visited your contribution to USGenWeb and wonder if you might have the information about the DRINNON
burials in these cemeteries.  According to my files, Rial and Martha Slaton Johns' daughter Ruth married Thomas

I'm tying to fill in some blanks on the Drinnon side of the family.
