Dtr of Hugh Johnston, Labourer, dec, and Ann Johnston, ms Johnston, dec. Informant: Archibald Pettigrew, Widower. Name of Hugh for her father is at variance with the OPR which gives name as Alexander. Similar variance with her brother Hugh where the OPR gives the parents as Hugh and Ann Johnston but the death certificate gives the parents as Alexander and Ann Johnston. This may indicate that there was a Hugh Johnstone married to Ann Johnstone as well as a Hugh Johnstone married to an Ann Johnston, both living in Ayr.
