    • Meschac Johnston (1795-1871) and Rebecca Rhea (1802-1875) lived in Horry County, South Carolina and they had at least 12 known children. The last two sons of their at least a dozen children were William Franklin Johnson (1843-1863) and James Harley Johnson (1848-1910).

      William Franklin and James Harley grew up together and were close. In the beginning of the American Civil War, at the age of 18, William enlisted at the Confederate States of America Army while James Harley was only 13 years old. At the battle of River Cleveland County in North Carolina, William Franklin was unfortunately killed. Upon receiving the tragic news, his youngest brother, James Harley, was utterly heartbroken.

      Five years later James Harley did get married to Rebecca Buffkin. Their first daughter, also their first child, was born. Two years later, a son was born but James Harley could not bring himself to name his son after himself so he compromised and named his son after his brother and himself, William Harley.

      Almost 30 years later, William Harley married Fannie Hux. After having four children (three daughters and a son), William Harley and Fannie dedicated their second son to James Harley’s beloved brother. William Franklin Johnson, Sr (1843-1863) was the Grand Uncle of William Franklin Johnson, Jr (1910-1988).
