Ancestry of Helen Juanita Johnson Day
George B. Johnson or George E. Johnson?
from Stacie Ricketts (firstname.lastname@example.org) 4 Oct 2006
I talked with my mother today.. and what I believe has happened is that the 'B' was a typo on (George E. Johnson's) legal documents and it was never changed. The reason is that he was George Jr. and also he had an old screen door with his full name on the front of his house. He lived right down the road from us. I went to their house millions of times. I confirmed this with my mom and she also said his middle name was Edward. His son we called 'Ski bo' and/or Elic, was named after his father. So I guess for the sake of correct documentation perhaps you can make a note about the actual and the legal. I can see how they could record a B instead of an E.
Documentation citing 'George B' --
