Hi All, My family Johnstons came from Inverness-shire, Scotland around 1852. His name was John H Johnston. Then the family went to Iowa then to CA. I haven't been able to read all of the comments yet, but I will. I'm new to this site, but it looks like fun.

Searching for information about the family of Mary Magdalene Johnston, B. 1920-1928 in Pike County Mississippi - possibly near McComb. Rumor has it she was at least partially Choctaw. She married a Michael Dadario and ended up in Philadelphia, PA. [Trying to get my daughter-in-law interested in genealogy]

I'm looking for information on John Johnston who lived in Buffalo NY in the 1890's. He came from Ireland - Sligo / Co Lietrim. Haven't been able to find how he got to Buffalo.

My JOHNSTON family goes back to John JOHNSTON of Washington Co, AL. His grandson John L Johnston came to Austin County, Texas in 1839. He and wife Eliza McGee had 9 children, Margaret, Harriet, Penelope, William, Lemuel, John (Jack), James, Elizabeth and Daniel.

I am researching Ellen Johnston (my paternal grandmother) who was born in 1881 in Carroll County, Mississippi. Her sister, Hannah) was born in 1896. I thank you in advance for any information you could provide me about Ellen.
