Notes for JAMES B. JOHNSTON:
One of the proprietors of the Johnston Brothers' Boiler Works of Ferrysburg, is one of Michigan's native sons, his birth having occurred in Detroit in 1864.
The family is of Scotch origin. His grandfather, Hamilton Johnston, was a native of Scotland, and his father, J. W. Johnston, was there born in 1814. The latter crossed the briny deep to America in 1844, and is now a resident of Ferrysburg.
In the fall of 1880, he and his brother succeeded their father in the control of the concern, which is now run under the name of Johnston Brothers.
In 1884, they established a branch business in Muskegon, which was carried on under the name of the Muskegon Boiler Works, and which was conducted until 1891, when they sold their plant at that place.
In 1892, they established the Johnston Brothers Boiler Works of Chicago, and J. B. Johnston has continued in charge of the Chicago plant, which is located on Mather Street, between Clinton and Canal Streets.
