Jeremiah Johns moved to Hamilton County, Florida from North Carolina about 1826 and settled on Camp Branch where he lived until his death.

He raised 6 sons and 3 daughters.

One son, Hezekiah, the great-great-grandfather of Harold Murphy (as of 2014, living in Lake City, Florida), fought in both the Seminole and Civil wars. Jeremiah was also in the Seminole wars.

Jeremiah was born in 1788 and died in 1869 and is buried in Prospect Primitive Baptist Church in Hamilton Co. Fl.
