Sank and Mary had at least 3 children before she died in 1890. We have a picture, taken in the 1880's, that shows Sank and Mary with the 3 children, whose names we do not have.
In 1894, when Sank was 39, he married a Miss Vesta Ann Miller (Vesta Miller is #1360), the daughter of Wright Smith Miller of Delta County. Sank and Vesta had an unknown number of children. One of them was named Wright Miller Johnson, born in Delta County in 1913. In about 1916, Sank moved his family, along with 3 of Vesta's sisters and their families, to the Slaton, Texas area. In December 1916, Vesta gave birth to a still born child. Vesta Miller Johnson died in February 1917. We have had some contact with one of their descendants, Erwin Johnson, a grandson of Wright Miller Johnson. We would like to hear more from him.
