MIGRATION OF THE JOHNSON FAMILY

“They walked all day, each taking turns at pushing the wheelbarrow until they finally reached
Lee County. They met a white man on horseback . . . and he told them that there was a
German by the name of Schultze who lived about four miles further down the road who
wanted to hire a Negro family to work on his farm.”
