I am looking for children born to Clark and Elizabeth Burnett Johnson. They were married in Hillsville in 1893. They had daughters, Bessie (c. 1896), Nellie (c. 1898) and a son, George (c. 1901). I believe George was a twin. I am not sure where the children were born. The family lived in Kansas in 1910. Census says they were all born in VA. All help appreciated.
