I was born and raised in what is supposed to be the first house in Amabel Township. It was first owned by the Forsythe family, Lot 21 Concession 8, Amabel. I lived there until I was in my 20’s. I moved to Kitchener for a year and a half, then came back to Port Elgin for my wife’s job.I worked in construction, then was a building contractor and owned my own company, Bev Johnston Construction, for 37 years. I am retired and still live in Port Elgin.
