Little is currently known about Jefferson Davis and Mary Jane. Some confusion as the Carroll County death records list her mother as Mary J. Bond. Perhaps her mother had remarried. She died 5 days after Oscar's birth.

J.D. or Jeff as he was known started a store in the Coulson Community which was in continuous operation for almost 100 years. The store was continued by J.D.'s son, Oscar and Oscar's daughter Helen.

J.D. and Mary's children are:
1. Luda Ellen (19-Dec-1886 to 19-Sep-1965) who married Joseph Withheld, and
2. Oscar B. (20-Dec-1890 to 7-Nov-1967).

J.D. and Margaret's children are:
1. Ethel B. (28-Oct-1892 to 30-Nov-1960) who married Elmer Withheld, and
2. Lottie Bell (13-Nov-1893 to 23-Mar-1987) who married William A. Withheld.

Johnson and both of his wives are buried in Robert Farmer Cemetery on Route 743 in Carroll County, VA.

Any information about the members of this family would certainly be appreciated.
