Ann Hannah Johnston
My name is Hannah Johnson after my grandmother
My great great grandfather was James Samuel Johnston. He was born in Irland Feb. 11, 1802. He immigrated to the US Pennsylvania. There he married Hanna Ammerman. I am tryiing to find information on his parents and siblings. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I am looking for more of my ancestors. My Johnston family member is my great great grandmother, Catherine K. Johnston (known as Kate), was born 23 August 1862, but we don’t know where. But her first married home was 16 Lake Street, Belfast, Ireland. Kate’s religious affiliations was with St. Jude’s parish 1885-1889. She immigranted to Canada on the 24 April 1891. Kate’s parents were William G. Johnston born around 1832. His occupation was a Joiner in 1884 in Belfast. He was married on the 26 May 1857 at St. Anne’s in Belfast. His wife was Catherine Wilson born around 1832, also known as Eliza Wilson. This is as far as I have been able to go back. Would love help finding the rest of my ancestors.
