JOHNSTON / Washington (County?) ~ 1826

JOHNSTON / Washington (County?) ~ 1826

Surnames: Johnston
Looking up my ancestors...stuck on a William Johnston, born 04 May 1826 in Washington, ME. Don't know if it's Washington County, or Washington, Knox County, Maine. I've got his death record from Marlborough, MA (d. 10 Mar 1894), and it lists his place of birth as Washington, ME. It also lists his parents (Thos. and Eliza Johnston) and their places of birth (Washingotn, ME).

If anyone has any guidance/info, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

It probably was Washington, Maine, Knox County. There were several by the name of Thomas Johnston, a common first name in the family. Thomas Johnston, Esq. settled near Bremen/Bristol in 1759. Born in Scotland 1735 and died 1811. One of his sons by his second wife, Anna Sprowl, was Thomas, born 1768. Your on your own from there. My family descended from Thomas'(1768) brother James (1775-1824).
