I'm looking for info on a Johnston line.

Mainly I have the following info George A. Johnston (Born abt 1848 Death before 1880 son of John and Malinda) and Sarah Elizabeth Johnston (Born abt 1846 daughter of Harrison and Elizabeth). Married Jan 23, 1866 in Leake Co. Mississippi. John and Harrison are believed to be brothers, this making George and Sarah first cousins that got married.


I believe Sarah and George A. Johnston raised a family of four boys and two girls.

#1 William H. Johnston
B: December 01, 1867 MS.
married Cenia Louisea Fatheree July 5th, 1885 LA.

#2 Sarah Ella Johnston
B: September 1868 MS.
married Harrison Brown Thompson November 17th, 1883 LA

#3 Johnie E. Johnston
B: 1879 MS.
married Etta Jordon October 16th 1898 in Winn, LA

#4 Rufus Alexander Johnston
B: March 28, 1872 MS
married Marry Francis Broom December 27th, 1900 LA

#5 Daniel Sylvester Johnston
1874 MS.
married W. Ada Barnett Feburay 25th, 1897 LA

#6 Mary Elizabeth Johnston

married Joseph Levi Jones December 23rd, 1900

In the 1880 census I found Sarah in Yazoo co Mississippi with all 6 kids listed as widowed. Shortly after she packed all her kids and belongings and went to Winn Parish, Louisiana. I was told she applied for her homestead on July 15th 1891. When she got to old to care for herself she Lived with Mary Elizabeth (Johnston) and her Husband Joseph Levi Jones.
