Re: Jack Johnson's Ancestry
In Response To: Jack Johnson's Ancestry ()
A man by the name of Ossie ( pronounced O.C.) Johnson of South Carolina was Jack Johnson's 3rd cousin. My husband referred to O.C. Johnson as Poppa. O.C.was the father of my husband's father. My husband and I also have a son. There were photos of Jack under the glass coffee table when my husband was a child. Jack has a lot of kin in S.C. and several of them share a strong resembalance to him. O.C.Johnson was a soldier in WWII. There is a photo of him on my son's wall in his room as O.C.was his Great-Grand father. You can clearly see they were related. Fascinating subject.
