Regular price $40.00 Sale

Johnson was a significant individual in negotiations between the British and the Iroquois in New York State. He served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs, and upon his death the Chiefs of the Six Nations held their own memorial service for him, as he was much loved. Much loved indeed! Johnson was also said to be father to 100 illegitimate children. One of his many affairs, his relationship with a Mohawk woman named Molly Brant was perhaps his longest. They had eight children together, all of whom received land from his will. She was the sister of Joseph Brant, founder of Brantford, Ontario and an important historical figure for the Six Nations. An essential book for genealogists in New York State and parts of Ontario, Canada.
