Glasgow was born about 1845 in Laghta, near Kinlough.  Parents were Arthur & Barbara Brooks Johnston.  One known sister, Elizabeth Frances who married Stephenson Whitten.  Glasgow married Elizabeth Craig of Lisneena, Collooney, Sligo on 14 Mar 1878.  Their children were Barbara, Mary Anne (m.

Walter Barber from USA), William (m. Rebecca Regan from Sligo), James (m. Ida Struble from USA), and Robert.  I'm a granddaughter of James & Ida--looking for relations.  All the best, Deb.

  • Hi Deb,

    I also have Johnston's in Rossinver.  Rachel Johnston married James Mackay (son of Mathew Mackay) and Glasgow Johnston was a witness.  Rachel was the daughter of James Johnston.  They had a daughter, Rachel (my great grandmother) who married James Sprague.  James Sprague died in Louth and Rachel remarried and emigrated to Connecicut.   I had also researched  Glasgow trying to determine if he was a brother to James, but have not made the connection.  I had Arthur as his father, but didn't have the mother's name.   Susan, the  daughter of Elizabeth Johnston and Stephenson Whitten, married Robert Mackay/Mackey, son of Rachel Johnston and James Mackay) in 1907  and emigrated to Connecticut.

  • I am connected to these Johnstons but I don't know how. LOL! Can't decide whether I should start my own post or add to this thread. Think I'll start my own ... since I'm probably rather far afield.
