They had several children together, but only two of the daughters, Georgia and Lalla, survived to adulhood. When Johnston's wife died in 1894, he was about 71 years old and was not able to raise his daughters alone. His neice, Elizabeth "Cousin Betty" (Langford) Cowan and her daughter Frances Elizabeth Cowan helped him finish raising Georgia and Lalla. Cousin Betty's mother was Nancy (Carson) Langford who was Johnston Carson's sister.

What a "grand old gentleman" you must have been. How proud you would be of Leon and his documentation of all the family. May you always be recalled with pride.
