Several years after the death of Mr. Frost she married Davis Johnson and three sons were born, Archie, Clifford and David, Jr., all of Harbor Springs also survive, besides the husband, ten grandchildren and six great- grandchildren and a host of friends who were closely associated with Mrs. Johnson.

Classification: Query:Surnames: Pulver Johnston
My grandmother Clara Johnston maiden name: Pulver. Her father was Henry Pulver and her mother Rhoda Phillips; both from Ohio. Clara was married to Albert Frost, Edwin McFarland and then David Johnston. She was born 12/27/1867 and passed 5/20/1931. I found a half brother, Charles H. Pulver born 11-2-1896. I am very curious if there were additional brothers or sisters and any additional family info about her. I have the stuff from my dad on but she was gone before any of the grandkids were born.
