Hellcat-

Andrew Johnston was from Richmond, VA. He was a graduate of the University of VA.

He arrived in Quincy, IL in 1837 and was editor of the QUINCY WHIG. He was also a lawyer and partner of Archibald Williams of Quincy. Johnston served in various city offices in Quincy.

Mr. Johnston and Mr. Lincoln shared interests in politics, the law, and literature, especially poetry.
