I'm not related.

You didn't say what kind of information you are looking for. Are you looking for his parents, more data on just him, his wife and/or children? You can find most of this data at

His WWI draft card shows him living in Tyler County, WV. The 1920 census has J.A. Johnson and wife Mae living in Cisco with their sons Delmer 13, Arthur 9 and Karl 5. The last two were born in WV. The 1930 census has them still living in Cisco under the names John A. Johnston. Ella M., William D. and Arthur M.

The Texas death certificate for May Johnston shows she was born June 16, 1883 and died in Cisco Sept 17, 1943. She was a widow and buried in Oakland Cemetery. I would imagine John is buried there too. Her father was W. McKisson.

Under Ohio marriages is J. A. Johnston to E. M. McKisson in 1902 in Monroe County, OH. It shows his parents were Israel Johnston and E. C. Graham. Her parents were Jacob McKisson and Amanda Pringle. John was born in Venango County, PA and ironically Ella was born in Johnston, PA. Of course this may actually be Johnstown although there is a Johnston in Franklin County,PA.

The 1900 census of Monroe County, OH has Charles and John with parents Israel and Dillila.
