I am researching the Johnston and Johnson families who came over from Germany to Canada.
In particular I would like to find a living male descendant of Levi and/or Nicholas. Here is some information on them and another family member:
1. Levi Johnston, b. 1842 in Germany,
2. Nicholas Johnson (probably Johnston), b. 1849 in Germany, and
3. Elizabeth Johnson (probably Johnston), b. 1813 in Germany.
All were living in Galt as of the 1871 census.
I suspect that these Johnstons were descendants of the Johnstons of Craigieburn in Scotland whose ancestors went to the port of Danzig in the mid-1600s. Danzig was a member of the Hanseatic League and later became part of Germany.
If anyone can help me out with information on this family or families I would greatly appreciate it.
