Genealogy / JOHNSON

I've been a genealogist for a few years now. I can trace my JOHNSON line back to my 10th great paternal grandfather, Erik Larssen, who died in Finland in 1690. My own Johnson's stayed in Finland until my 2nd great paternal grandfather Johann Wilhelm Karlssen Skutnaeba, also known as, William Johnson, & his wife, Antalena Barnas, also known as, Alena [Barnes] Johnson, came to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan shortly after the turn of the 20th century. Prior to that, my Johnson ancestors had called the area surrounding, Skutnaeba Finland, home for many, many generations. In Michigan, they settled 1st in, White Cloud, Newaygo, MI. Later they made, Newberry, Luce, MI their home. Countless descendants of theirs still make their home in the UP. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is the only geographical portion of the country where the majority of the populous can legitimately claim multiple Finnish ancestry. Below you'll find some pictures of my JOHNSON line. You'll see headstone pictures, as well as scanned photographs of some of my relatives that have since died. I try & shy away from using pictures of living people without their permission, for obvious reasons. To view a picture in the original size, simply click

The Johnson House, owned by the Johnson family, was the leading hotel & boarding house in Newberry for decades. The child shown 2nd from the far right is my great grandmother, Alma Alena Johnson. She would later marry George Emil Mattson & share six children. My own name comes from mixing my grandmother's name of Lucille with her mother's name of Alena. Lucille/Alena = Salena. This same photograph can be seen in our, Newberry Michigan gallery.

Was born on 12 December, 1869; the 3rd of seven children, & the eldest son born to, Karl Johann Johannssen & his wife, Greta Stina Johannsdotter. We're not sure when he anglicized his name, nor when he migrated to the United States. However, we do know that in 1893, in White Cloud, Newaygo, MI, he married, Alena Barnes. Together, this couple would share four children. William suffered from breathing issues, currently believed to have been tuberculosis. For that reason he located to Denver Colorado, just after the turn of the century. It was there he died on, 22 October 1902. He is buried in Forest Home Cemetery, Newberry, Luce, MI.

Dagnas was the eldest child of, Victor Charles Johnson & his wife, Amanda [Barnes] Johnson. The notes I read state that Dagnas was a daughter. However these same notes read that Dagnas was also the town pharmacist for Newberry. I have my doubts about a town pharmacist being a woman, during that time period. The truth however, is that we simply don't yet know. What we do know is that Dagnas was the eldest of eleven children, and is buried in the Johnson Family Plot, in Forest Home Cemetery, Newberry. Dagnas was born 11 December 1899 in Ashland, Ashland, WS & died in Newberry, Luce, MI on 05 June 1968.
