We found this picture at the Cleburne County Historical Society in a folder labeled "Alex and Tilda Johnson". Because it was mislabeled, we almost weren't shown the folder. We had told the volunteers there that we were researching Johnstons, and a very good volunteer was persistent in his endeavor to help us. I do not know who put the copy of the picture there, but I think it may have been Ella Mae (Johnston) Barker and Lois (Johnston) Ward. I want to give proper credit to the person who shares this picture. If anyone knows to whom I owe credit, please email
