  • Notes 
    • It difficult to know exactly what Obie's name is. It looks different every time you see it. However, I think I have finally tracked down the 1870 census, which says, Obadiah, spelled as it is in the English Old Testament Bible. The census taker put down Judkins as the last name but Obadiah Judkins and family is no where else to found in Alabama. However, when we change it to Johnson. It all lines up. The names and ages all line up. However, Savier isn't home.

      I am confident that the census taker made an error and wrote down Judkins instead of Johnson. Probably because there were so many Judkins in that same area.

      On the 1880 Census, the census taker reports that Obie's father is from Massachusets or Alabama. Obie's mother is unmistakably recorded as being from Alabama while is wife says that her father is from Virginia while her mother is from Georgia. Rebecca Johnson is the first ancestor in the Richard Day line that has Georgia origins. - R. Finley Sr
    • The proper spelling is Obadiah but Obediah is used just as frequently. His name could have been spelled either way. We won't be sure until we find his grave. - R. Finley Sr.
