- The birthplace of Mr. Johnson is confusing. It looks like Alabama or Massachusetts on the 1880 census.

* 1870 Census
The Enumerator made a mistake here on the 1870 Census. He misreported "Judkins" as the surname of this family. Future family historians will no doubt view the 1870 census, cross reference it and see the same as I have. I could be wrong, however, it seems pretty airtight. Ages and Birth places all lineup. As well as the area. Also, consider, there are no Obediah Judkins or Obadiahs anywhere else in the region, nor in the State of Alabama. - R. Finley Sr, 07-09-2008.
