NOT Archibald Johnston/e & Margaret Gordon

Another Johnston Family Album has come to light recently. It was kept by a daughter of Archibald Johnston/e. It now appears that we made a mistaken identity. These are not Archibald Johnston and his wife Margaret Gordon. If you have photos of them, please, let me know.

Archie was the brother of Robert "Red Robin" Johnston/e and both brothers were born in Kilrea, Londonderry County, IRELAND. Archie was married to Margaret "Peggy" Gordon whose father was born in Kilrea also.

The brothers tried to retain the "e" on the end of their surname; however, Archie was the only one to hold onto it apparently as one of his obituaries was written with it as Johnstone. Good for you, Archie! The others gave into government bureaucrats and eventually dropped the "e", but they refused to drop the "t" even though some officials tried to do it for them.
