      I searched for George Johnson/Johnston in the newspaper vital statistics database and in the Royal Gazette index but did not find a death notice. A younger George Johnson and family is in the St Stephen/St St Andrews Census for 1851.You can lookup that individual in the 1851 Charlotte County Census at the automatedgenealogy.com website.

      I also looked for a registered land sale of George Johnston/Johnson over the same periods. I searched both grantor and grantee columns. Not one sell transaction is there. In the 1838 to 1854 period, there is a Samuel Johnston to George Johnston buy entry. I did not note it for lookup. Those three land grants to George were probably disposed of by non-registered private sales and/or the properties went to family without formal registration on his passing or before.

      Found among the papers of Amos Botsford, at the Public Archives of Canada. This item was submitted by J. S. Hughson. Many of these names appear on land petitions in NB. A careful check should be made to see if they are actually the same persons, or persons with similar names. People who went to NS at times moved on to NB for one reason or another. Nova Scotia was more heavily settled than NB at this time, and much of the good lands had been already granted by the time these Loyalist arrived. Better lands were available in NB, and friends and relatives were often settled there. The winters of 1782 and 1783 were very harsh, and many deaths occurred among the new settlers. Survivors often decided to move away from the coastal lands in NS. {Items in brackets are uncertain. / JSH}
