Hi - I am looking for any information on an ancestor by the name of William Robin Johnston.  He was born in Ayrshire, Scotland in about 1761.  He married an Irish girl, Margaret Ferguson, and it appears that all fourteen of their children were born in Ireland (mostly in Co. Cavan); note:  I've only been able to find names for ten of the children.  It seems that many of the children emigrated to Canada as young adults  to the Carp and Huntley areas (Ontario) in the early 1800's.  One of the sons, Samuel, is the next link in our ancestral tree.  If anyone has any information on this family could they please let me know.  I'd be so grateful.

Warm regards

Willi Johnston
