John Schweitzer Johnston

John Schweitzer Johnston, the son of Thomas Vallance Johnston and Clara Schweitzer, was born on August 1, 1898 in Newark, New Jersey (USA).

On January 10, 1920 (just days after the 1920 census was taken), John married Muriel M. Glass. Muriel, the daughter of George Glass and Agnes Cerlin (sp?) was born about 1902. John was living with his mother and step-father at the time, but no trace of Muriel has been found until her wedding to John.

Sometime during the mid-1920's, John and Muriel had a child together, a son, and then eventually divorced. By the 1930 census, thirty-year-old John was living with his mother, step-father (Edward Wooster), brother David and niece in Newark, New Jersey. Also in 1930, on June 25th, both John and David applied to officially change their surname from Johnston to Wooster.
