Rebecca Neighbors In The Family Tree

Rebecca Neighbors, who married Asel [or Asa] Greer, was my 4th great-grandmother.  The best tangible proof of that is the 1850 census.  It is presumed that Rebecca's daughter, Mary Greer, married John Johnson.  The fact that Rebecca, who was born in Virginia, is living with the Johnsons in 1850 lends credence to the familial relationships.  The Johnsons' son, James, who was age 10 in 1850, was my 2nd great-grandfather.  His son, James Dudley Johnson was my great-grandfather.  James Dudley Johnson's daughter, Katherine, was my grandmother.  [See part of the family tree]
