There's a George W Johnson, b. 1839 in Canada East, in W. Hawkesbury on the 1861 census, tinsmith. He's a singleton, so if this is the correct George, he married Margaret in 1861 or 1862 and had Robert shortly after getting married.

In the 1871 census (W. Hawkesbury), George is 33, Margaret Ann is 27, Robert G is 8 and Alice Mary is 6. The information all fits together with the marriage and the previous census.

Unfortunately there's nothing on either George or Alexander in the Prescott/Argenteuil history book.

In the 1851 census, in Gore (Deux-Montagnes Co, QC) There's an Alexandre Johnston, b. 1798 Ireland, wife Rachel, and a number of children. If you don't have access to the 1851 census here on Ancestry, it's free at
