  • Notes 
    • From Clarke Johnson, Aug 2007
      John Johnston was married in St. Ninian's Parish in Stirlingshire Scotland.
      Moved to Drummond, ON when he first came to Canada.
      Moved to Beachburg when Angnes was one year old; 1853. First child Peter died in Scotland. Came to Canada with John and Alexander. Had 5 more children in Canada. His farm was on the left side of the road as you came out of Beachburg. Aunt Jessie remembers an old stone foundation but apparently there has been a number of houses built. {Conversation with Aunt Jessie May 2000]
      From an old birthday book of Mary [Brown] Johnson wife of Sam Johnson which she kept for the early part of the 20th century she wrote "Feb. 19 John Johnson passed away at age 88 years, 8 months, 9 days."
      According to progam and info from above birthday book, John was born on June 10 1810.
