Biography* ZACHARIAH JOHNSON
Zachariah Johnson from North Carolina, was probably living on Loup Creek before 1820, when he is listed in the Kanawha Census. His homestead was a part of the later Campbell Settle farm on Mulberry Branch. The existence of his cabin and its approximate location are certified in the following original source from the Kanawha County Survey Book dated 1823: "Surveyed for Zachariah Johnson 50 acres by virtue of an entry made June 3, 1823, lying on Jinkins Branch of Loop Creek and beginning at two White Oaks on a hillside opposite said Johnson's house and about three-quarters of a mile from the mouth of said branch". The entry record also mentions his house and his upper field, implying that he not only had a cabin there but cleared fields as well before taking any steps to get title to the land. Jinkins (Jenkins) Branch was one of the two early names of Mulberry Branch, the other being "First Left Hand Fork". The last record we have of Zachariah Johnson was in 1829 when he was bondsman for Jemima Kelly in the settlement of the estate of his neighbor, Jacob Kelly, who lived opposite the mouth of Mulberry Branch and who died in that year.
Disillusioned with the land situation here (prior claims of non-resident patentees), some members of this Johnson Family migrated to Indiana, and perhaps Zachariah was one of them. He had not been successful in getting a patent for his improvement on Mulberry Branch, and shortly thereafter we find his homestead in possession or occupancy of Turley Foster. A son, Jonathan Johnson, must have been disenchanted with prospects in Indiana, for he soon returned to Fayette County. His wife was Margaret Kelly, and by inheritance and purchase from other heirs, he came into possession of four-sixths of the estate of Jacob Kelly. This he held in possession and probably lived on until 1848, when he sold it to William Kelly and moved to a farm (the Mary Woodrum Place) which he purchased on the Summerlee Road. Israel Johnson, another son of Zachariah, married Nancy, daughter of Jacob and Jemima Kelly. He made a land entry on Johnson Branch of Loup Creek at Spruce Fork in 1825 and lived there until 1827, when he sold his improvement to John Johnson from Nicholas County and moved to the Hilltop neighborhood in the Loop. Mahala, a daughter of Zachariah Johnson, was married to Jesse Treadway and lived at various locations throughout the Loop. All three were permanent residents of the Loop and left numerous descendants in and outside of the county. Elizabeth, another daughter, married James Kelly, son of Jacob Kelly.
