JOHNSTON posted by Trish Johnston Burleson on Thursday, August 12, 1999

I am looking for information concerning my great grandfather Wyatt Johnston possible middle names of Noonan, Newman, or Newton. Date of birth is unkown. My grandfather James Henry Johnston was born in either Eldorado, Humphrey or Bryan??. On my grandfathers death certificate it has his father listed as Wyatt Newman Johnston and mother listed as Sue Bryant Lee. We are unsure about how much of this information is true. We do know that Wyatt passed away in the late 1940's or early 1950's and it is believed that Sue passed away prior to him. My grandfather, James, was born in 1917 and married my grandmother in 1946, Cora Mae Martin. James was married once before Cora and fathered a child in that marriage. He had nothing or little to do with his son from his first marriage and the name of the child or the first wife is unknown. The place of death for Wyatt, my great grandfather is also unknown. I know for sure that Wyatt and Sue had at least 2 boys James Henry an! d Jack and some daughters but names are unknown. If anyone has any information please contact me.
