||Josette Phillipe Gamor, b. abt. 1842, Louisiana |
||12 Jun 1873
- This line is probably a dead end as Josette reports that she's widowed by 1900... and she also filed for a civil war pension as well. This was long before another Prosper Johnson sent Acadia parish a letter granting the marriage union between his daughter Josephine and Georgie Chatman in 1909. However, it could be the case that Josette (aka Josephine) sent the letter herself.

- According to documents in hand. Prosper Johnson sent in a letter to Acadia Parish, Crowley LA court and offered his blessing for his daughter, Josephine Johnson, to marry George Chatman. Witnesses were Leon S. Hass and A.J. Littell. The census record shows that these men were white. There are rumors that George could pass for white and that Josephine was pretty light herself. - RVF.Sr 04-22-2009
- Research Notes: We aren't certain of this line yet. We are tracking who we suspect is Prosper throughout the census records. Once we are certain, we will add the census data for permanent storage. For now, just links until we confirm. We do know that Josephine Johnson's father is a Prosper Johnson.
Prosper in 1870, aears single.. though he could be married to an older Martha Johnson, or, she could be his mother.
Prosper in 1880, married to Lucy Benton and is a Carriage Driver
In the 1900's we find a Prosper Johnson of the right age married to a Clara Williams.
In 1910, Prosper is still married to Clara. Clara reports that she had 2 children but they are no longer living. Prosper says that Clara is his second marriage and that he works at the Levee.
In 1920, Prosper is widowed and living alone. He's cooking for a Private Family.
- Prospere Warr may have been his original name:
There are a number Prosper Johnsons. We are listing them all here and any clues we have for future research. - RVF, Sr. 2009
