Sorry, but they aren't the same David.
My David went from SC to near Macon, GA then to Russell County Alabama
then Rankin Co. MS. He was a traveling Methodist preacher and farmer.
He had three wives, first Catha Ann Sanders, then Sarah Lancaster, then
Martha Mathis/Matthews. His oldest son Joseph B. Johnson ended up in
DeSoto Parish, LA.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I know how frustrating these
Johnsons/Johnstons are. And the same names show up everywhere!

Where did your David settle? I am researching a David Johnston b. about
1800. He lived in Georgia and then finally settled in Plaquemines
David was a riverboat pilot and belongd to the Benevolent Pilots
David married Hanna Frederika Hoffmann on 5 February 1840 (could be a
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
between 1852 and 1863; when Alexander signed up for the Civil War.
Thanks for a reply,
