More on the Johnstone family

More on the Johnstone family for Richard Johnstone.
Today I happened to be at the kirkyard at the same time as these two ladies, who are Sammy Johnstone's daughters Yvonne and Ivy, who kindly showed me to their Grandparents' Headstone and clearly shows the names and dates of their passing, sadly both at a young age.
