This is only the second photo I've ever seen of John "Racehorse" Johnson. Sandy has lots of stories about the Johnson family. With her permission, I'll be sharing some of them here in the future.

Meeting that distant cousin

Quite some time ago I began emailing with a cousin from the Johnson line of my tree. She has done tons of research over the years and has lots to share. Recently I was speaking at a little town near Helena and she and her husband were in the audience. We had such a nice chat afterward and then we talked by phone over the weekend. She has sent many more pictures, family stories and shared a family mystery with me. This has to be one of the best parts of my research. The connections with distant relatives. So. Much. Fun.
