No doubt they were sisters! If you think that's confusing, their brother's death certificate has surname "Johnson". James Johnson (21 Jan 1860 - 21 Aug 1922) was born in Walker, GA and died in Fannin, TX. "Matt Johnston" may have been part of the father's name 'cause 1860 GA-Walker-Chattanooga-Image 9 has M. "C". Johnston as head of household. Mary aka Mollie and James were part of the household. Speculating Mr. Johnston died in the Civil War? His "widow" remarried to William Thomas Mcgrew and they're found 1870 GA-Subdivision 128-Image 138. All three Johnston sibling were part of the household. More speculating, Mollie and James were in Texas at least by 1881 based on birth of Mollie's eldest surviving child on 1900 census. Josie enumerated with mother/stepfather in 1880 McMinn, TN. She's counted with his surname. McMinn, TN was also the marriage location of George Prather/Mary "Johnson", 18 Aug 1879. That's found https://familysearch.org/
