Family Record of the Descendants of Peter Johnston, Part 2

[Family Record of the Descendants of Peter Johnston, of Edinburg (Edinburgh, Scotland). Folder 5, Trigg-Floyd Collection, Special Collections, John Cook Wyllie Library, The University of Virginia's College at Wise (formerly Clinch Valley College), Wise, Virginia. This is my rough transcription. Note: handwriting in the original most closely resembles that of Joseph Eggleston Johnston (1807-1891). Though the document is undated, by the dates included it must have originated in 1846 or after. By the handwriting and style, it almost certainly dates to no later than the end of the nineteenth century].
