witchcraft, and exec. at Hartford, was a Johnson of Windsor; and one
of the most disting. was Rev. Samuel, b. at Guilford, 14 Oct. 1696, the
first Presid. of King's Coll. at New York, wh. d. 6 Jan. 1772. Sometimes,
but rarely, this name appears Johnstone. Ten of the name had
been gr. at Harv. in 1834, of wh. three were clerg. and forty-eight at
other N. E. coll. of wh. twenty-one were clerg.
