"William ap Edward, son of Edward ap John, of Cynlas, resided upon a rented farm in the township of Nantlleidiog, in Penllyn, before his removal to Pennsylvania, but is sometimes described as 'of Cynlas,' prior to that event.He married first, about 1671, Katherine, daughter of Robert ap Hugh, of Llwyndedwydd, near Bala, Merionethshire, and sister to Hugh Roberts (i.e., Hugh ap Robert, or Hugh, the son of Robert), who also removed to Pennsylvania and became a member of the Provincial Council... The wife of Robert ap Hugh (alias Robert Pugh) was Elizabeth, daughter of William Owen, of Llanvawr Parish, Penllyn. Katherine died in Wales, 1676, and William ap Edward married secondly, 1681, Jane, daughter of John ap Edward, of near Bala. William ap Edward and family early joined the Quakers, and came to Pennsylvania on the ship, 'Lyon,' which arrived in August, 1682. He was a member of the Company of Merioneth Adventurers, and, by deed, dated 1 April, 1682, under the designation of 'William ap Edward, of Ucheldri, yeoman,' became the purchaser of 15601/2 acres of land, a part of which was surveyed to him in Merion, and part in Goshen. This land he disposed of soon after, and having purchased from other members of the company their right to the entire amount of Liberty land belonging to the purchasers under the Edward Johes and John ap Thomas Patent, which parcel of land he had surveyed to him in Blockley Township, and for which with the overplus thereunto belonging, and another lot, he had a patent in 1702. This land, late the George Estate, is situate[d] at Overbrook station, on the Pennsylvania Railroad, and now forms a part of 'Overbrook Farms,' in the Thirty-fourth ward of the city of Philadelphia. William ap Edward died in 1714. His will was signed 29 December, 1714; proved, 29 January, 1714-15, at Philadelphia. He had issue by his first wife: 1. Elizabeth, b. Wales, 14th Third-month, 1672; m.

Death Notes: Husband - Albert Lytle Johnson

Obituary transcribed in FindaGrave.com:

Today, all of Crete sincerely mourns the passing of a good friend, a splendid citizen, and foremost business associate. Along with the Crete Mills, A.L. Johnson was a Crete institution, and his sudden, unexpected demise yesterday morning came as a shock to the local community, as well as the entire state. He will long be remembered, not alone for his business ability and success, but for his many benefactions. He was a liberal contributor to the church, Wesleyan University, and all worthy causes.

Albert Litle Johnson, youngest son of Andrew Johnson and Mary Ann Litle, was born in Albany, Wisconsin on June 19, 1864 and died suddenly at his home in Crete, Nebraska on May 5, 1948, aged 83 years, 10 months, and 16 days. He came with his family to Nebraska territory in 1865 and settled on Oak Creek, near Valparaiso, Nebraska.

He attended York Academy, Burlington Business College, and the University of Nebraska. In 1883 he worked for a few months at the Crete Mills but soon returned to Valparaiso where he served as cashier of his brother's bank. On January 1, 1888 he returned to Crete, where he was engaged in the milling business until his death. In 1895 he was made General Manager and became President when the Crete Mills was incorporated in 1901. On January 1, 1948 after 60 years of continuous service, he was elected Chairman of the Board.

In 1904 he moved to University Place so that his children could attend Nebraska Wesleyan University and returned to Crete in 1922.

He was a member of the Methodist Church, the Nebraska State Historical Society, Sons of the American Revolution, the Masonic Lodge, and the Omaha Grain Exchange.

He is survived by one sister, Mrs. M.J. States of Lander, Wyoming; three sons, Dr. Rodney K. Johnson of Friend; Port A. Johnson of Miami Beach, Florida; and B.L. Johnson of Crete; one daughter, Mrs. Ruth J. Stancliff of Los Angeles, California; 15 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren.

He was deeply interested in education and for over fifty years was a member of the Board of Trustees of Nebraska Wesleyan University and President of that board for over 30 years. He served on the National Board of Education of the Methodist Church for a number of years and until his death was active in church and civic affairs.

Caption under the picture -- Albert Litle Johnson passed away suddenly from a heart attack at his home, 1112 Grove Ave., about nine o'clock yesterday afternoon. He had been confined to the house for a week or more, but there was nothing about his health condition to cause apprehension. Last rites will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Monday with Rev. Lloyd H. Rising, pastor of First Methodist Church, University Place and Rev. Bert A. Bessire, pastor of Grace Methodist Church, Crete, officiating. Dudley O. Aller will sing for this last service accompanied at the organ by Philip Sack. Interment at Riverside Cemetery.

Crete Stores to Close -- Thomas J. Aron, Mayor, announced Wednesday afternoon that all places of business would be closed Monday, May 10 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in final tribute to Mr. Johnson, a loyal friend and citizen.

Research Notes: Husband - Albert Lytle Johnson

From USGennet.org (http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/topic/resources/OLLibrary/Nebraskana/pages/nbka0148.htm) :
Albert Lytle Johnson

Albert Lytle Johnson, a resident of Nebraska for the past 65 years, was born at Albany, Green County, Wisconsin, June 19, 1864, the son of Andrew and Mary Ann (Lytle) Johnson. His father, who was a contractor, builder, and farmer, was born in Massachusetts, September 8, 1816, and died at Valparaiso, Saunders County, Nebraska.

In 1635 Edmund Johnson, the great great great great great grandfather of Albert L. Johnson, sailed with his wife, Mary, from London and settled in Hampton, New Hampshire. His son, James, was born in Hampton, in 1643, and later moved to Maine, where he was a millwright. There is no particular record of the Johnson family from that time until 1763, when Benjamin Johnson, grandfather of Albert Johnson, was born; he enlisted in the Revolutionary War at the age of 13, and was a private in Captain Jeremiah Fogg's Company, the Colonel George Reed's Regiment of New, Hampshire.

Mr. Johnson's parents were married in Maine, November 26, 1840, where four of their ten children were born. In 1851 they moved to Ohio, where one son was born, and the same year moved on to Wisconsin; the five younger children were born there. In 1865 his father and his brother, R. K. Johnson, started for Nebraska with one horse and a light wagon looking for a suitable homestead; the brother had just been discharged from the army after service in the Civil War. Their means were limited and they paid expenses on the trip by mending clocks and tinware for the settlers.

Part of the trip was made on foot and the journey was a long one. They finally reached the southwestern part of Saunders County and homesteaded on land near the present site of Valparaiso. There they built the first frame house in that part of the state, hauling the lumber with ox teams from the Iowa side of the river and hewing the timbers from trees growing on the homestead. Since funds were low his father set out to find carpenter work, and as Lincoln began to grow found work on the first state capitol building; a little later he made a contract for part of the work on the first University of Nebraska building.

Mary Ann (Lytle) Johnson, mother of Albert L. Johnson, was born in New York, December 15, 1819, and died at Valparaiso, August 15, 1902. She was one of the finest types of pioneer women, and with no luxuries and few of the necessities of life contrived to make a home for her family of ten children.

----------
From DeWayne B. Johnson on 15 Jun 2010:

I think my nickname "Doc" dates back at least 75 years, perhaps to 1935. I was 15 years old. My older brother Clifford and I worked on my uncle's (George M. Talbot Dairy) dairy ranch in Burbank. Neither of us milked cows but we did almost everything else -- washing bottles, pasteurizing and bottling milk, churning of buttermilk, pitching hay, mucking out the muck, and much more. Clifford called me "Doc" and I called him "Joe." Uncle George had a hay ranch out east (?) of Lancaster and pasture land down near Irvine. I rode mules and horses in the course of my work. Fell off more than once, brushed off by low-hanging branches. Otherwise, I am no horseman!

Clifford's nickname never stuck, but mine remained with me even up to today! I earned a real doctorate at UCLA in mass communications and education in 1955. Throughout my professional career as a journalist and professor of journalism, my colleagues and students have hailed me as "Doc." They still do. It feels good to be one of them and not an outsider!

I run the risk of bragging a bit -- two Pulitzer Prizes with a select few on the LATimes editorial staff, and twice honored by the California Publishers Association as THE outstanding professor of journalism in the state of California. (Oh, I am shameless!) So I may be something of a legend, my ego says, but that truly remains to be seen. 30 36

Death Notes: Child - Albert Lytle Johnson

Obituary transcribed in FindaGrave.com:

Today, all of Crete sincerely mourns the passing of a good friend, a splendid citizen, and foremost business associate. Along with the Crete Mills, A.L. Johnson was a Crete institution, and his sudden, unexpected demise yesterday morning came as a shock to the local community, as well as the entire state. He will long be remembered, not alone for his business ability and success, but for his many benefactions. He was a liberal contributor to the church, Wesleyan University, and all worthy causes.

Albert Litle Johnson, youngest son of Andrew Johnson and Mary Ann Litle, was born in Albany, Wisconsin on June 19, 1864 and died suddenly at his home in Crete, Nebraska on May 5, 1948, aged 83 years, 10 months, and 16 days. He came with his family to Nebraska territory in 1865 and settled on Oak Creek, near Valparaiso, Nebraska.

He attended York Academy, Burlington Business College, and the University of Nebraska. In 1883 he worked for a few months at the Crete Mills but soon returned to Valparaiso where he served as cashier of his brother's bank. On January 1, 1888 he returned to Crete, where he was engaged in the milling business until his death. In 1895 he was made General Manager and became President when the Crete Mills was incorporated in 1901. On January 1, 1948 after 60 years of continuous service, he was elected Chairman of the Board.

In 1904 he moved to University Place so that his children could attend Nebraska Wesleyan University and returned to Crete in 1922.

He was a member of the Methodist Church, the Nebraska State Historical Society, Sons of the American Revolution, the Masonic Lodge, and the Omaha Grain Exchange.

He is survived by one sister, Mrs. M.J. States of Lander, Wyoming; three sons, Dr. Rodney K. Johnson of Friend; Port A. Johnson of Miami Beach, Florida; and B.L. Johnson of Crete; one daughter, Mrs. Ruth J. Stancliff of Los Angeles, California; 15 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren.

He was deeply interested in education and for over fifty years was a member of the Board of Trustees of Nebraska Wesleyan University and President of that board for over 30 years. He served on the National Board of Education of the Methodist Church for a number of years and until his death was active in church and civic affairs.

Caption under the picture -- Albert Litle Johnson passed away suddenly from a heart attack at his home, 1112 Grove Ave., about nine o'clock yesterday afternoon. He had been confined to the house for a week or more, but there was nothing about his health condition to cause apprehension. Last rites will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Monday with Rev. Lloyd H. Rising, pastor of First Methodist Church, University Place and Rev. Bert A. Bessire, pastor of Grace Methodist Church, Crete, officiating. Dudley O. Aller will sing for this last service accompanied at the organ by Philip Sack. Interment at Riverside Cemetery.

Crete Stores to Close -- Thomas J. Aron, Mayor, announced Wednesday afternoon that all places of business would be closed Monday, May 10 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in final tribute to Mr. Johnson, a loyal friend and citizen.

Research Notes: Child - Albert Lytle Johnson

From USGennet.org (http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/topic/resources/OLLibrary/Nebraskana/pages/nbka0148.htm) :
Albert Lytle Johnson

Albert Lytle Johnson, a resident of Nebraska for the past 65 years, was born at Albany, Green County, Wisconsin, June 19, 1864, the son of Andrew and Mary Ann (Lytle) Johnson. His father, who was a contractor, builder, and farmer, was born in Massachusetts, September 8, 1816, and died at Valparaiso, Saunders County, Nebraska.

In 1635 Edmund Johnson, the great great great great great grandfather of Albert L. Johnson, sailed with his wife, Mary, from London and settled in Hampton, New Hampshire. His son, James, was born in Hampton, in 1643, and later moved to Maine, where he was a millwright. There is no particular record of the Johnson family from that time until 1763, when Benjamin Johnson, grandfather of Albert Johnson, was born; he enlisted in the Revolutionary War at the age of 13, and was a private in Captain Jeremiah Fogg's Company, the Colonel George Reed's Regiment of New, Hampshire.

Mr. Johnson's parents were married in Maine, November 26, 1840, where four of their ten children were born. In 1851 they moved to Ohio, where one son was born, and the same year moved on to Wisconsin; the five younger children were born there. In 1865 his father and his brother, R. K. Johnson, started for Nebraska with one horse and a light wagon looking for a suitable homestead; the brother had just been discharged from the army after service in the Civil War. Their means were limited and they paid expenses on the trip by mending clocks and tinware for the settlers.

Part of the trip was made on foot and the journey was a long one. They finally reached the southwestern part of Saunders County and homesteaded on land near the present site of Valparaiso. There they built the first frame house in that part of the state, hauling the lumber with ox teams from the Iowa side of the river and hewing the timbers from trees growing on the homestead. Since funds were low his father set out to find carpenter work, and as Lincoln began to grow found work on the first state capitol building; a little later he made a contract for part of the work on the first University of Nebraska building.

Mary Ann (Lytle) Johnson, mother of Albert L. Johnson, was born in New York, December 15, 1819, and died at Valparaiso, August 15, 1902. She was one of the finest types of pioneer women, and with no luxuries and few of the necessities of life contrived to make a home for her family of ten children. Her grandfather was a soldier in the Revolution, and in the War of 1812; her father was in the regular United States Army for a time. Her older brother, Robert Lytle, sailed around the Horn in 1849, and was in the gold rush of '49; he died in 1876. In 1850 her other two brothers, Benjamin Stevens Lytle and Albert Waldo Lytle joined Robert, sailing from Belfast and crossing the Isthmus, where they left for Eureka, California. Albert died in 1896 and Benjamin in 1899.

Mr. Johnson, who has been a leader in the civic and business world at Crete, Saline County, Nebraska for many years, attended the public schools of Valparaiso, and the Nebraska Conference Seminary at York, Nebraska. He was a student at the University of Nebraska, 1880-81, and attended the Orchard City Business College at Burlington, Iowa, in 1881. He was employed by the Crete Mills as bookkeeper in 1883; was bookkeeper and cashier for David May at Lincoln, Nebraska; was assistant bookkeeper for Leighton & Clarke and the H. T. Clarke Company, wholesale druggists in Lincoln and Omaha; was cashier of the R. K. Johnson Bank at Valparaiso; and in 1888 returned to the Crete Mills as bookkeeper and assistant manager. In 1895 he became manager in full charge of activities of this organization. In 1901, when the Crete Mills were incorporated, he became president of the company; he holds this position today. He was formerly a director of the First National Bank at University Place, Nebraska; was formerly vice president of the Union Loan & Savings Company at Lincoln; was one of the organizers of the First Building & Loan Association at University Place; and is a stockholder in the Crete State Bank and several other corporations at Crete.

His marriage to Harriott Elizabeth Patmore was solemnized at Valparaiso, August 25, 1885.
