From Seymour's obit below, the only possibility of "Mrs. Alton Johnston" as
the informant, is his daughter, Gletta Aileen McCully.
She was born 28 Dec 1920, living at home and if so, was possibly connected
with Alton Robert Johnston, born about 1920, deceased 2 Feb 1972, then
separating, with her later marrying Bruno Loh.
If not, then the "filler out of the form" made an error.
