I am trying to find information and records on my 2nd great-grandparents, Thomas Johnson/Johnston and Eliabeth Coates(?). They are believed to have come to MI from England duirng the 1870's. Their son, Thomas "Johnson" (b. June 1, 1959 in England) married Hattie Martha Wilson (d/o William & Helen Wilson) in Fraser Twp., Bay Co., MI on Sept. 25, 1888. Both, "Johnson" and Wilson families were residence of Fraser Twp. in 1888, according to marriage record.
I live in AL so I don't have access to records up there. Does anyone know anything about this family or know of descendants of them? The could be listed as "Johnson" and/or "Johnston" in records. The name "Johnston" has officially be used for four generations. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
