Johnson Family Photos Edward and Jennie Johnson Descendants - Visit to Ron and Dolores Sedo Jan 14, 2015 - Grandma Rehbein - AKA Jennie M Lehman Janczewski photos from Richard Sedo

Recently I have been working on the genealogy of the Johnson Family.  Enjoyed visiting Ron and Dolores Sedo in Appleton yesterday.  Ron is the oldest son of Jane Dolores Johnson. Jane was the younger sister of Ralph Johnson,  the father of Susan, the grandfather of my sons.  Jane  was born 
 1 Apr 1920 in  Kaukauna, WI to Jennie (nee Cook -Babino)  and Ed Johnson.  I remember, Sue,   Susan E Johnson, the mother of  our sons, Nate and Jesse Weaver,  reflected often when we were at cabins in the north, that she remembered how kind Ronny Sedo was during their shared family vacations.   Ralph William Johnson,   b. 9 Mar 1918, Kaukauna, WI was two years older than Jane.  I am Grateful that Ron has several albums of family photos that include Sue, and her family as she was raised in Little Chute, nearby to Appleton where her cousins the Sedo family lived.  Ron remembered the times they vacationed as families and had photos from the early  1950's and supported me in labeling these photos.

 While I was sitting in Ron and Dolores' kitchen at the table, Ron discovered he had 2 important documents about his mom,  Here is her birth certificate, born April 1, 1920, Kaukauna, verifying Ed Johnson and Jennie Ba____sp? now of Kaukauna as her parents. Born Jennie born in Bear Creek, Ed in Chicago.

 And here on Oct 5, 1920 Jane Dolores Johnson's parents are Edward Johnson and Jennie (nee) Cook and sponsors Herman Rhebein and Mrs Herman Rhebein.

Oral tradition through Ron, has it that Jennie was born out of wedlock to Grandma Rehbein  with a man who was a police man around Bear Creek. and no one knew her maiden name or first name . Ron is aware that a man named Cook adopted Jennie who had 3 kids, Herman, Bernie and Mabel. Here one the birth cert looks like Balisea and the name Babino which could with a cursive "b", may be an attempt to write Babineau, which may be a French Spelling. 

More may be revealed :-)

And indeed, more is being revealed.  Thanks to the work of Sue's cousin Ricky, AKA Richard Sedo..
 sent the photos below the last day of Sept 2015,  with documentation of the resting place of Grandma Rehbein,  born Jennie Marie Lehman .  My research thus far, has included a lot of work on, with the Cook, Babino, Rehbein and Johnson families.  Recent discovery of Deer Creek Twp of Outagamie Co, where in Sect 20 -29 near Bear Creek has the land around 1900-1910 owned by LA Babino, a variety of Lehman's in the neighorhood.  Note just east of Bear Creek Village-Town in Sect 20 + 29 The Lehman and Babino names.  Also Bricco (French spelling is Bricault). I lot of French Canadian Catholics here. 

Note the family names here in Deer Creek Township near Bear Creek, Babino, Cook and Lehman all live in the sections 20 and 29  :-)

Today, I am grateful to Richard Sedo, son of Jane D Johnson Sedo and grandson of Jennie Babino Cook, great grand son of Grandma Rehbein, AKA Jennie Marie Lehman Janczewski.
