Here is what little information I have on these two brothers:
James and Robert Johnston came to America from near Glasgow, Scotland in 1828 or 1829. They first engaged in mining coal in Pottsville, Pa. In 1833, the brothers came to Clearfield County and purchased adjoining farms in Jordan Township. James later went to Scotch Hill, Clarion County, PA. I have no other information on Robert. James was married to Nancy Agnes Rutherford and they had 7 children
May (or Mary) Lettie Johnston b. 11-27-1836
Agnes Johnston b. 11-11-1838
Robert Johnston b. 2-25-1841
James Johnston b. 2-9-1842
Catherine Johnston b. 2-1-1845 [my gr-gr-grandmother]
Thomas R. Johnston b. 12-3-1845
John R. Johnston b. 2-27-1850
It is unknown when the family left Clearfield County. Any information on these two brothers would be greatly appreciated.
