1930 Census~Porter Johnson~Itawamba County, MS

Below is the information from the 1930 Census of Robert 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 Roscoe C Friday.
