According to the GOGGANS family book, M.S. Eve's "Our Folks," this is Mary JOHNSTON who m. James GOGGANS:

My husband descends from BUTLERs who married into the GOGGANS family twice in his line. In fact, one is Catherine JOHNSON [who I wonder if she might be JOHNSTON, above?] who m. Daniel BUTLER...
