On 4 Jun 1913, Mary Alice Johnstone arrived in Quebec along with her two children, Steven and Ellen and her mother, Mary Coleman. They were on their way to B.C. Canada to meet up with Mary Alice's husband William Johnstone, who had arrived more than a year earlier.
They traveled on the Laurentic, most likely as one of the 1,000 third class passengers. Four years later the Laurentic would meet a fateful end when it was sunk by a mine on 25 Jan 1917 off the coast of Ireland, killing 350 passengers.
The Johnstones would remain in B.C. until 1916, when they emigrated to MT, where they would live the rest of their lives.
