In Reply to: Re: GARLINGTON, CRESWELL, CUMMINGS, SALTER by Harold Fisher of 236


The information I have is from John Johnson, Conecuh County, Alabama, and William Johnson, Including Allied Families, compiled by Gertrude Louise (Johnson) Stephens. published by Gateway Press, Inc., Baltimore (1973), pp 10-11. Since the passage is not a long one, here is the reference so you do not have to hunt for the book (although I suspect that from your original subject title you may already have this item):

"Nancy Garlington (Salter) Johnson was a daughter of Samuel Salter, born ca 1782 probably in North Carolina, and Mary (Polly) Cumens (Cummins) Salter born ca 1779, probably in North Carolina. She also is a Creswell descendant, Samuel Salter is believed to have been one of the twenty-two or three children of James Salter 1755/1834, a Revolutionary War veteran. It is believed that Nancy Gainer 1758/1838 born NC was the third wife of James Salter. Before coming to Conecuh County, Alabama, about 1815, the Salter's {sic} lived at Bartow, Georgia, in Jefferson County: the Gainer's {sic} had lived in Washington County, Georgia. Mary Cummins is believed to have been a daughter of William Creswell 1735/1803 and Margaret (Creswell) Creswell: Margaret is believed to have been a daughter of David Creswell d. 1754 and Isabella.

"Nancy (Salter) Johnson was born pril 24, 1812, Georgia and died August 14, 1862, Evergreen, Alabama. Sallie (Brown) Johnson was born about 1838 and died between December 1874 and April 1975. It is believed that both may be buried in the Witherington Cemetery, Evergreen, Alabama. In making contacts in the Evergreen area, I was referred to a Johnson Cemetery whcih I have not been able to locate, though it is said to be in the Holly Grove-Lyeffion area."

I found the above when researching my Salter line regarding a William Salter born abt. 1760 or so in NC, and hope this will be of assistance or perhaps give you some clues. As we know, published sources should always be checked with reserch of primary source material.

Kind regards
