I am sure that there is probably a death announcement or obituary for Lucy Johnston when she died.The problem is...We don't know when she passed away.There is a ten year time period and there is just not any way to research that many papers.A. H. Johnston and Mrs. A. H. Johnston are listed in the Mound Cemetery as burials.I don't think that there is a stone .... so it could be possible that when the lot was sold that it was put on the original plat of the cemetery.I'll try to call the lady who has the plat and see if she can give me any information.In the time period Lucy died, an undertaker probably wasn't used.
I called the court clerk's office and asked them to check the marriage database from 1910 to 1920 and she did not find any record of a marriage for Abijah Johnston.The next time I go to the courthouse I will check the index myself.Abijah lived in the town where the courthouse is located so if he married a local lady there should be a marriage license in Taloga.If she was from another community outside of the county, they could have gotten married elsewhere.
I wish that I could find Abijah on the 1920 census.This census would let us know if he was married to Nancy then or if he married her after 1920.That would really narrow down the search.Have you found him on the 1920 census? I found Daisy B. JOHNSON and her son Roy and daughter Lola.She is divorced from Richard and is a restaurant keeper.I cannot find Abijah though.
I'm glad I could help and found some information for you.If I come across any more information, I'll let you know.I am a Dewey County volunteer but I work full time.Just have recently started doing more volunteer research.Good Luck.
