Johnson Family Genealogy

The earliest known Johnson ancestor in this family tree is Peter Johnson, who was born circa 1840 in Denmark. Family lore has it that Johnson is not the true family surname, but that it actually started out as Jensen. When Peter's son, also named Peter Johnson, was married, his bride-to-be Elizabeth Murray supposedly would not marry him until he changed his name from Jensen to Johnson, to make it sound less foreign and more Scottish. This in itself puts the reason for the change in doubt, as she herself was not of Scottish descent, but of Irish instead.
