I need to better understand our family connection to Ollie Johnston. I’ve been told that we share roots in our family trees. I want to subscribe to ancestry.com so I can see the public records. If you were to go to ancestry.com and search for Oliver Johnston, born 1912, died 2008 in California…..then go to the “Family Tree” tab, you’ll see Weatherford there!! I want to see those records. It’s our Disney connection. Again, how cool!
Watch the movie, “Frank & Ollie.” You’ll hear them mention Tuscola, IL!! They bring it up as one of their commonalities. They met in California and became friends then discovered that their mothers were both from a tiny little midwestern town called Tuscola, IL near Champaign-Urbana. How about that? Cool?
