George Johnston in Hawkesbury, 1865

Surnames: Johnston, Prescott Co.
I am looking for information on George Johnston in Hawkesbury, 1865. He was married to Margaret ?. In 1862 his son Robert George was baptized in the Methodist church, and in 1865 his daughter Alice Mary was too.

I am interested in his parents' names, where they came from, etc..

Thank you.

There's a George W Johnson, b. 1839 in Canada East, in W. Hawkesbury on the 1861 census, tinsmith. He's a singleton, so if this is the correct George, he married Margaret in 1861 or 1862 and had Robert shortly after getting married.

Age: 24
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1838
Father Name: Alexander Johnson
Mother Name: Rachel Johnson
Spouse Name: Margaret A. Flynn

In the 1871 census (W. Hawkesbury), George is 33, Margaret Ann is 27, Robert G is 8 and Alice Mary is 6. The information all fits together with the marriage and the previous census.

Unfortunately there's nothing on either George or Alexander in the Prescott/Argenteuil history book.

In the 1851 census, in Gore (Deux-Montagnes Co, QC) There's an Alexandre Johnston, b. 1798 Ireland, wife Rachel, and a number of children. If you don't have access to the 1851 census here on Ancestry, it's free at automatedgenealogy.com
