TWO BIRTHDAYS IN MILAN AREA FALL THURSDAY

Mrs Thomas Alvin G Johnston, who resides on a farm on United States route 67, south of Milan, will celebrate her 14th birthday anniversary tomorrow, although she is a grandmother. Mrs Johnston is a daughter of the late Thomas and Mary Jane Wiggins Breadon of Bowling township. Mrs Johnston terms herself "a woman without a country," as she was born on the ship Georgia, which was flying the red, white and blue flag at the time, on the Atlantic ocean. Mrs Johnston was the first girl born on the ship and was named Georgia, after the ship, by her parents, who were traveling from Ireland to America. She was just three days old when they landed in New York city. A strange coincidence, Mr Johnston's grandparents also came from Ireland and his father was three days old when he left Ireland with his parents to sail the Atlantic ocean. Aside from caring for her farm home and family, Mrs Johnston takes an active part in church and community life. She is a member of the Milan Methodist church and president of the W M B society. She is completing her 15th year as superintendent of the primary department of the Sunday school and her 14th years as president of a ladies' organization in the church. Mr and Mrs Johnston were the first subscribers to The Argus when the rural route daily truck service was started. Before her marriage to Mr Johnston, June 17, 1903, she was a school teacher. They are the parents of four daughters; Mrs Clarence J Scherer of Rock Island, Mrs Arthur R Bohman of Orion Mrs William Whan of Milan and Miss Marjorie Rae Johnston of Chicago. There are two grandchildren, Robert Lee Scherer of Rock Island and Dickie Lee Whan of Milan. The evening of her birthday and also the following evening, Mrs Johnston will appear as reader on programs to be presented at the Moline Wesley Methodist church. The Rev Vincent Van Horn serves both the Milan and Wesley Methodist charges. The family birthday dinner was served in the Johnston home Sunday evening, with the children and grandchildren present. A large birthday cake with the 14 lighted tapers was a gift of Mrs Scherer. Mrs Johnston received many gifts.
