JOHNSTON, Benjamin; b.1857, County Derry, Magherafelt
Posted by: Michaela Johnston (ID *****3105) Date: March 04, 2012 at 09:28:21
  of 1059

I am searching for any information on my great-grandfather:

Benjamin Johnston
Born: January 23, 1857 in either Ireland(County Derry - rumour has it, Magherafelt area) or in Canada
Married: Eliza Leonard in 1897 in Ontario (parents, John Leonard and Sarah Black)
Lived in Innisfil, Ontario till he passed in 1936

Had 3 children:
Laurena b. 1898? - married Darcy Lennox
John Robert b. 1900 - married Wilda Carr (my grandfather)
James b. 1909 - bachelor, no descendents

I don't have a middle name, any information on siblings, or parents. It was said he came from Ireland to Innisfil, Ontario although I cannot be sure of his birthplace.

Any information would be great.

Many thanks,
Michaela
