Clemm, Gerry & Bruce:

Thomas Alton Johnston and May Beatrice MacAloney are believed to have issue
of Alton Robert, Darrell Duncan and Madeline Johnston.

Yet in Bessie Alma (Lyman) Siddall Johnston¹s obit, there¹s a stepdaughter,
Laura (David Fowler) and a stepson, John Johnston. Stepchildren, Alton
Robert, Darrell Duncan and Madeline are accounted for.

Darrell Duncan¹s 1999 obit only refers to siblings, Alton and Madeline.

So, who¹s the mother of Laura and John????

Did Thomas Alton have a spouse/relationship in between May and Bessie,
possibly a McCully girl????

Awful to be like a dog with a bone and don¹t know where to bury it!
