Looking for anyone with connections to JOHNSTON family, or their farm at Airdsgreen. I
know the father, William, was a collier at Old Cumnock and his son Alexander farmed the
area. The farm stayed in the family for several generations and is now part of an Open
Cast mine. Would like to know more about the farm.
