1910 Census~Porter Johnson~Alcorn County, MS

Below is the information from the 1910 Census of Porter Johnson.  These records are transcribed exactly as they were recorded on the census.  Many times the people who went from house to house taking the census could barely read and write, spelling names to the best of their ability,  while others among them were very literate and had beautiful handwritings as they correctly spelled the names of the people they were enumerating.  The enumerator for this particular page of the census was Herman L. Reynolds.

  Note: Given names without surnames listed in the parenthesis of the neighbors are the same as the first surname that is head of the household.  I normally only post 10 neighbors on each side of the main household I find on the census but upon further review I am assuming I found the father of Porter Johnson as the 11th neighbor but would like to find further documentation for proof and chose to list him.
The 11 households(neighbors) enumerated before this family with head of household listed first and the rest listed in parenthesis along with ages and relationship to head of household:
