Thomas H. Johnson (1823-1903) married Enfield Honey (c.1829-1889), the daughter of George Honey (died after 1843) of Stafford County, Virginia.  In 1855, Thomas was overseer of the road “from Falmouth and Warrenton Roads one mile above Falmouth to Potomac Run.”  He served as a constable for the Hartwood District from at least 1870 to 1884 and was constable for the Aquia District from 1885 to 1886.  During the War Between the States, Thomas H.
