James & Elizabeth (Sutley) Johnston Family

Seeking information about the James and Elizabeth (Sutley) Johnston family of Canal Twp, Venango County, PA. James and Elizabeth were married 8 September 1814 in Canal Twp after Elizabeth’s first husband, Samuel Cousins, had died in August 1814.

It is reported that James and Elizabeth had five children, or John H. born 11 August 1815, Sarah R., Robert H., Harrison R., and Hugh. John H. moved to Warren, PA by 1841 and by 1850 had moved to Richland County, Ohio and to Lorain County, OH, by 1860. His family continued to live in Lorain County, OH, where this family is readily researched.

Another son, or Robert H. Johnston, was executor of his father’s estate after James died in 1846. I have found no other information about Robert before or after this date.

Please also note that I have found no information about the remaining three children or Sarah R., Harrison R. or Hugh.

Lastly, Elizabeth was most likely married a third time to an “unknown Graham” but it is not clear when she was married…presumably after James’ death in 1846, or after 1843 when Elizabeth filed for divorce a second time. As the Venango County court records are incomplete, it is not clear if a divorce was granted or not.
