Can you help me?
I am looking for more information about my great-great grandma's parents, Robert Hooper JOHNSTON (later spelled JOHNSON) and Mary Ann BALES or BOLES (seen it spelled both ways) who were married in Licking County, Ohio in Decemeber of 1841. They moved to Bourbon County, Kansas sometime before 1860. They had several children - perhaps as many as nine - and only 2 survived the scarlet fever that ran through the family. Those two children were Mary Elizabeth and Henry Franklin.
Robert JOHNSTON was born in Ohio in 1815 according to "Footprints of Bourbon County Families." He died 10 March 1870 in Bourbon County, Kansas.
Mary Ann BALES/BOLES was born 27 Apr 1823 in Virginia. According to family, she was adopted by a family who migrated to Ohio. I'm not clear if she was born a BALES/BOLES or if that was the name of her adoptive parents. I don't know when she was adopted or what happened to her birth parents. She died 3 Jan 1917 in Bourbon County, Kansas. She and her husband are both buried at Hatch Cemetery there.
