Re: Alton Johnston

Hi Read,
Thomas Alton Johnston, son of Duncan Dunbar Johnston and Bessie Ellen Grant, was married to May Beatrice MacAloney on June 27, 1917.  I have their children as - Alton R, Madeline Dorothy, Darrell Duncan, and John.   May Beatrice died July 8, 1942.  Then, I have Thomas Alton's second wife as Bessie Alma Lyman, daughter of Richard Lyman and Avis Reeves. But I don't have a marriage date. Bessie died May 5, 1995.
So if Thomas Alton married Alice Eileen Kieley on August 1944, when did he marry Bessie Alma Lyman?  I take it that Darrell Duncan is the Duncan you're talking about?

Clem and Dave,

I think there is some confusion here. Probably due to too many similar

I have Alice Eileen Kieley (d/o Daniel Gideon Kiely and Hattie Anstis Brown)
as the second wife of Thomas "Tommy" Johnstone (married Aug 2 1944). Thomas
had a son Duncan from his first marriage and daughter Janet Ann with Alice.
Tommy and Alice also adopted two children Thomas Daniel and Laura. Tommy and
Alice divorced.

Tommy remarried and died in 1986. I show Tommy was the son of Duncan Dunbar
Johnstone and Bessie E. Grant and had siblings Agnes Kathlene, Mabel, Muriel
and Daniel.

After their divorce Alice moved to Ontario and married a Fowler. Alice died
June 22, 1983

Hello Dave,

Adding to what Bruce Clarke mentioned:
The Halifax Chronicle Herald published an obituary for A.R. Johns_on (New
Salem) on Feb 3, 1972

If this is your Alton Johnston, then the obituary may list his wife's name.
