Malinda's maiden name was "Johnston" and that was the spelling used by her father & brothers. However, many records show her maiden name as "Johnson".
Her headstone shows her birth year as 1857 but her death record shows birth on Nov. 4, 1858.
Malinda Johnston was the daughter of John C. Johnston & mother unknown, both buried in Carroll Co., Arkansas. Malinda had several brothers & sisters. They were:
1) Josephine Johnston
2) Patrick Henry Johnston
3) John Riley Johnston
4) Mary Ellen Johnston
5) Doduria Johnston
6) Robert Lee Johnston
Malinda was raised by her father & stepmother, Sarah C. Coatney Bingham Johnston. As a result of her father's marriage to Sarah, Malinda had the following half-siblings:
1) Modica Johnston
2) Susan L. Johnston
3) Samuel Marion Johnson (he dropped the "t" from his surname).
There were also several step-siblings because Sarah Coatney had been married prior to her marriage to John C. Johnston in 1870.
