I was recently on your Johnson family website, and noticed that the information on Robert Bruce Johnson, son of John Johnson and Phebe Kimball, was incomplete and ended with him. He was my maternal great-grandfather (his banker's portrait hangs over my couch), and I grew up in the house he built in Holyoke, MA. I have RBJ's original signed copy of The History of Weare, NH.

If you are interested in his remaining line, I would be glad to send it to you.

Phebe Kimball's father, Thomas Kimball is one of my DAR Patriots, as is David Lovejoy. Phebe's grandfather's clock is in my front hall, and was moved from Massachusetts to Texas when my mother moved here in 1978.

1626. Email from Virginia Smith Alexander with Word attachment 8/11/2018, Here is a copy of my Johnson genealogy line. Hope it helps. The best overall Johnson reference source I know of is The History of Weare, New Hampshire, 1888. Of course it's out-of-print, but you might be able to find a copy through Amazon or Alibris. It's also online. It's a very thick book. The Great Migration, Anderson, Vol. IV, is one of my favorite go-to sources when I'm doing papers for Colonial Dames XVIIth Century,etc. That's available through New England Historic & Genealogical Society (NEHGS). You may already have this, but if not, it's available by single volume or the whole 7-volume set. I bought the whole set as all four of my  direct lines arrived in New England between 1627-1670, so I use it all the time.

This is a long document so hope it comes through. If not, I can mail you a copy.

Good luck!

A reference on page 552 says:
"John Johnson made cloth by hand in the time of the 1812 war. He employed many hands. He took a load of cloth to Portsmouth. As he was driving along, a custom-house officer followed him. Mr. Johnson, having a fleet horse, led him a long race, then let him come up, when he found that the cloth was all American manufacture and that he had raced for nothing."

It is at the 7th generation — with the marriage of John Johnson 7 and Phebe Kimball 7 that the Kimball and Johnson families come together.

Upon his death, the bank directors issued the following tribute:
"In Respect to the Memory of Robert Bruce Johnson, President of the Holyoke National Bank... At a special meeting of the Directors of the Holyoke National Bank, held this day, all being present, it was voted that the following entries be made upon the Bank Records: Departed this life on the first day of November, eighteen hundred and ninety-nine, Robert Bruce Johnson, in the seventy-second year of his age, and the twenty-seventh year of continuous service as a Director here. His life was a constant power for good in the up-building and best growth of the bank and this community, and no words can adequately express the profound sorrow and keen sense of personal loss felt by all his associates in this institution. He was a firm friend and wise counsellor, always honorable, high minded, dignified, helpful, cheerful and strong, with an accumulated experience that was valuable beyond measure to the institutions he was so long connected with. His advice was freely sought and generously given with a kindly interest and business-like directness of point that added to its force and made it a pleasure to deal with him. To his family, we respectfully tender our deep felt sympathy. [Signed by] George W. Prentiss, Vice-President; William Twing, Cashier — Holyoke, Mass., November 1, 1899. Robert Bruce Johnson — President from April, 1896 - November, 1899; Vice-President from February, 1872 - April, 1896.
