In Reply to: Sherfield, Nancy (Laxton) by Amy Maxey of 37

Robert Pue Johnston (1/19/1848-7/21/1915), and he is buried at Chochise Garden of Rest in Cochise, Arizona, down by Tomstone, in Southeast Arizona
I show his wife as Paralee Isobel Sherfield Johnston (7/7/1861 - 8/13/1931) From family information, I know she was put in a nursing home, but her younger daughters got upset with the care, so they split the time between them taking care of her until she died. I have a number of letters written between or by these girls for her to other family members during those last years, as my husband's grandmother was Nahoma (Oma) Johnston McCully.

Here is what I have for children and such:I show her children as
Nancy (Nannie) Paralee Johnston Hawes Born January 5, 1878, and died January 8, 1967
Nannie's children were
Arizonia (Zona)
Charles Monroe Johnston Born October 17, 1879 and died August 16, 1969
Uncle Charley's kids were

Then there was supposedly another child that died

Nahoma (Oma) Johnston McCully -Born January 6, 1884 married to William Eddy McCully - 1906 in Boerie, Texas, and died August 27, 1967 (she was living with Aunt Edith and Uncle Lewis Perot when she died, so would have been in New Mexico I think when she died as Aunt Edith was teaching in Tatum back then)
Oma's Children were:
Bertha (who married Paul Johnson whose sister Bertha married Curtis and she died at a young age - in Mound Valley, Kansas)
Curtis (who married Bertha Johnson which was my husband's parents)
Edith (married Lewis Perot)

Thomas Maloy Johnston born March 22, 1886 and died August 16, 1969
Tom's children:

Henry Pue Johnston Born March 22, 1989 - died ? (I have a picture of him and his wife Hattie Dove (Dovie) Teel at their homestead in Arizona Dovie was born 5/19/1891 - 9/09/1971
Their children were;

Bertha Ola Johnston Keen Born February 5, 1893 and died December 19, 1978 Her husband was John, but I don't have any other information on him.
Their children were:

Effie Grace Johnston Hart Born January 3, 1989, and died November 1, 1971 her husband's name was Boyd
Their children were:

Etta Mae Johnston King born July 21, 1899 in Dill City, Oklahoma, and died Ju,y 25, 1981 My papers who her husband as Bob but I have no other information
Their children were:

My husband Everette remembers this Great Uncle Tom coming to Denver for a visit when he was in high school, and able to dive back in the 1960's, so he took him to visit places in the Denver area. This great uncle Tom talked to him about the family members that rode with the gang, and also gave him a bottle of home brewed moonshine, which uncle Everette gave to his mom. She put it into great uncle Tom's bag and he saw it and was really upset, as he thought my husband was the most ungrateful person there every was to return his gift. Later his mother told him they should have just poured it out, and then great uncle Tom would have never known the difference.

Would love to hear from anyone who would like more information, or who has more information and pictures from this side of the family. Linda McCully
