Re: Jack Johnson's Ancestry
In Response To: Re: Jack Johnson's Ancestry ()
We don't have any info on O.C. Johnson's parents or grandparents. O.C. was a share cropper in S.C. so one can gather the mentality at that time was survival. My husband and I have gathered that Jack's name was a hush subject to many of his kin due to Jack's lifestyle...which would have brought heat on anyone that supported him...especially family members during those segregated times. If I could get a copy of O.C. Johnson's death certificate the name of his parents should be on it. With a few phone calls and patience I may be able to get a copy.
