ca 1815 Ct. to Pikeville, Tn.

My name is Val Johnson. I was born in Sparta, Tn. I am looking for any info about my great grandfather WARREN JOHNSON (ca 1815 Connecticut -- d 1880 - 1890 in Tn.). He shows up in the 1880 Tn. census. He was 65, mar to MARTHA JANE BLEVINS POE. He and Martha Jane had 3 ch: WILLIAM FRANCIS (b ca 1870, my grandfather); ELIZABETH (ca 1869); and SUSAN (ca 1877). The census showed Warren and his father were born in Ct. The problem I'm having is I can't find any more info about him. He died when my grandfather was very young. He was in Pikeville, Tn. in 1880 and I assume He died before 1890. He was 65 and Martha Jane was 25 so it is very possible that He was married before. I heard he might have come down here from New York City to work in the textile mills in Pikeville or Dayton, Tn. Grandfather William Francis ("W. F." or Francis) mar MARY ALICE GREGORY of Kentucky. They had 7 ch: SQUIRE, WILEY, WINFIELD, VIRGIl (my dad) and LEATHA JANE. Two children died in infancy. When My dad George Virgil was about 7. Grandfather Francis and Mary Alice moved to Sparta, Tn. where I was born and still live. There are eight ch in our family: ELEGA, GEORGE, DILLARD, JAMES VALEZ (that's me), VONDA, JUNE and SHERRY.If anyone has information about Warren Johnson I would appreciate it My Web Site is Thanks
