Charles is listed on censuses as a shoemaker. That is a first that I have found in my research. Though he would have been approximately the right age to have served in the Civil War, I have found no reference to military service. Charles married Louann Lightner in Howard County, Indiana on April 22, 1863.
To do list:
1. Find an obituary for Charles
2. Find a death certificate for Charles
3. Research more on extended Johnston family.
This post is part of my on-going goal of 2013 to research each of my 32 3rd great-grandparents more in-depth. Charles is #15 on my list.
