John JOHNSTON and Maria JUNKIN
Bell's Corners to North Dakota, USA
New February 28, 2005:

Thanks to Robert Sample for the following: 

Hi Al:  I am sending along some info on the Johnston family that was for a 
while in Bell's Corners, Ontario and moved to North Dakota.  My half great 
Uncle Thomas Sampel married into the family. I thought that someone out there 
may be interested. The Sampel family believe Maria Junkin came from the Quebec 
side of the Ottawa River. I believe maybe that some of the Johnston family, 
parents and or siblings stayed in Bell's Corners but I am not sure.
