Looking for any information about Herman Johnston or Esther Myres. I'm not even positive they were married. I am adopted. Parents died Herman in 1969 in Houston, Texas. Mother died year later hit by car in Corpus Cristi, Texas. If you can help me find information I would greatly appreciate. I was adopted from Harris County Texas.

        This census shows his parents Robert and Mary Elizabeth (Wooten) Johnston and many siblings.  You might try searching for some of his brothers/sisters to see if you can find family links.  You should create Herman's profile on WikiTree if you haven't already done so.
