|Welcome to the Donald R. Johnston (Johnson) Home Page|
I'm presently researching the families of:JOHNSON (JOHNSTON);
LESTER; C(H)RISP; DURHAM; HUDDLESTON; PILKINGTON; FEWELL; SNIPES; COLLETT; HOGUE; ELDER; PHILLIPS; and PRICE.
My paternal g-g-g-grandfather was Isaac Johnston, born before 1775. He married Sarah and they, along with many of their descendants, lived in Tazewell County, VA. They had 13 children, including Squire, my g-g-grandfather. Squire married Mary "Polly" Lester.
One of their sons was Nathaniel Jersey Johnson, my g-grandfather, who was born in Tazewell County in 1838. He moved to TN at an early age where he married Sarah Elizabeth Huddleston in 1860 and in 1861,he enlisted in the Union Army. After the war, they moved to KY where my grandfather, John Wesley Johnson, was born on Sept 24, 1866.Nathan then moved to several sites in MO, where his wife Sarah Elizabeth died in 1873. In 1880, the family moved to AR and he married Matilda Rollison.They later moved to TX where he died in 1893.John Wesley Johnson (Johnston)remained in AR and married Nellie Fewell in 1893.
Any assistance or input concerning the Johns(t)ons prior to Isaac will be welcome.
