It appears that he was the son of James Johnston and (Harriet?) Mastoor from the marriage and census records found.  You might want to plug in the names to see if you can find more of his siblings in the 1881 Canada Census as census data indicates the family immigrated to the US in 1888.  His sister Hannah/Annah is listed on his marriage record as a witness.  1900 Census notes a sister Sarah. Approximate dobs on 1900 census for all family members.  Use the free search tool at:  https://familysearch.org/   Examples below:
