Notes: Isabella Johnston, widow of Daniel Johnston, was granted guardianship of her five orphaned children in Oct 1802, per Robeson County court minutes for that term. The children named were in this order: John, Neill, Mary, Archibald and Alexander. That is not the exact order of their births, as Mary was born about 1796-98. The Robeson County court minutes shows various guardians being appointed and chosen at various times, putting Daniel's and Isabella's children all born later than 1788. After Daniel's death in 1799, Isabella remarried to John B. Currie sometime between October 1802 and January 1807; in 1802 Isabella Johnston was given guardianship over her orphaned children, and in 1807 Isabella Currie applied in court for distribution of her former husband's estate. John Johnson chose a new guardian in 1806 putting his birth year at 1792 and Neill Johnson chose his guardian in 1808, making his birth in 1793. Children 14 and older were allowed to chose their own guardian and those under 14 had one appointed for them.
