Right - all we have is his name was JOHNSTONE, he lived in Rockhampton.
We need his name (and middle name if any)
His date of birth
where he was born (Netherburn, Lanarkshire? )
His parents' names (John and Marion Johnstone)
and if you have it, his wife's name.
Any idea when he came to Australia?
Then we have something to work on!
