Robert David Johnson

After many years of looking, it's now known that Robert David Johnson is my mother's maternal grandfather. He had a child with someone before he married and that child is my grandmother. Below is what I've been able to put together about his family from publicly available records. He was the son of David P. Johnson and Catherine Tyner. He was a lumber mill operator in Johnston Co. in 1930. I would like to talk to anyone who knows this family. If that's you, please contact me at beeken.jl@gmail.com.
