Canada / Edmund (Edmond) JOHNSTON 1820-1882
« on: Sunday 31 May 20 17:38 BST (UK)  »
Hello Rootschatters, I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these strange times.

A couple of years ago I posted a message on the Chicago page about this great great uncle of mine.  He was born in Ireland, son of Benjamin Johnston & Catherine nee Graydon. He died in Cook, Chicago in 1882. However, he left Ireland in 1837 on the ss George Washington, stopping in New York, bound for Canada.
I have since discovered that he had a daughter , Isabella M. Johnston, who married Warren S. EDES in Nov 1871 in Chicago.  Isabella was apparently born in 1851 in Belleville, Hastings, Ontario. She was Edmund's second daughter.  She died in 1931 and is buried in La Grange,Cook.

I have also found Edmund's wife's death, in La Grange, Cook, Chicago in March 1893. Anne nee Summers.  She was aged 70, born in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I cannot find any information in the Canadian records available... Did Edmund & Anne marry in Canada?  I cannot find Isabella's birth in Belleville.  Or her elder sister??

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Best regards, Liz Augereau,

William Johnston & Rachel Wright were married in the Presbyterian Meeting House in Lislooney, Co Armagh on 29th July 1857.

Their son Issac Johnston & Lizzie Macauley were married in 1st Presbyterian Church, Armagh on 25th January 1883.

I have lots and lots of Johnston threads, on both sides of my family !!

However, Isaac Johnston & his family lived in the city of Armagh on the Mall.  It just so happens that I discovered his parents, William & Rachel Johnston, living on a farm in Middletown, Co Armagh.  That is about 5 miles from Armagh city. In the 1901 & 1911 census, Isaac is living in Armagh city but he has a list of siblings living in Middletown. 
On both census Isaac was born in Co Tyrone and all the others in Middletown, Co ARmagh.  That is why I would like to find out why Isaac was born in Tyrone!!

Hello to all rootschatters!
Some time ago, I posted a message about my great grandfather Issac Johnston on the Co Armagh page because he lived there.  However, according to 1901 and 1911 census he was born in Co Tyrone. His birth date would be 1857....  I wonder if it is possible to obtain his birth certificate.  I am looking for his mother's name.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

United States of America / Re: Frances Beamish & John B. Wolfe Connecticut
« on: Thursday 04 May 17 16:35 BST (UK)  »
Many many thanks for all your help Sandra and MyLuck... 

My Frances was definitely from Co Cork and her second name was Roche - Frances Roche Beamish.
I am sure that the van Buren family is not hers .  She had a brother Abram and another Samuel. Her sister had died before she emigrated in 1894 immediately after her wedding...

All your work seems to conclude that perhaps my John B. Wolfe is the one buried in Mapledale Cemetery...
What progress since this morning!  Great.

United States of America / Frances Beamish & John B. Wolfe Connecticut
« on: Thursday 04 May 17 09:55 BST (UK)  »
Hello rootschatters! 

My great grandfather's sister Frances R. BEAMISH (sometimes known as Fanny) married John B. WOLFE on 5th April 1894, at Kilmacabea, Cork, Ireland.
They emigrated to America, and I have found them on the ship Campania which arrived in New York on 16th April 1894. The document says that their destination was CONNECTICUT.
John was a storekeeper.
I have also found death of John B. Wolfe in 1926, in New Haven , Connecticut.
There is also another J.B. Wolfe death in 1926 in Mapledale Cemetery ...
I can't find anything on Frances...
Can anyone help me to find this family - I would like to know if they had any children etc etc.

Many thanks in advance,
