Hi Dorothy:

Where did your David settle? I am researching a David Johnston b. about
1800. He lived in Georgia and then finally settled in Plaquemines Parish, LA.
David was a riverboat pilot and belongd to the Benevolent Pilots Association.
David married Hanna Frederika Hoffmann on 5 February 1840 (could be a second or
so marriage because of his age in 1840). They had one son Alexander H.
Johnston born in 1841. David died in 1852 and the family moved to New Orleans
between 1852 and 1863; when Alexander signed up for the Civil War.

Thanks for a reply,
Tami Johnston-Parise
New Orleans, LA
