The 1910 Montgomery County census, Page 278, 1668 Militia District shows W. R. Johnson MW, age 35 married 18 years and wife Margie Johnson FW, age 37, Married 18 years and her father was born in Ireland. Children were listed as, H. V., Mary F., Rosa B., Addie L., and Beulah Johnson

William Riley Johnson died and a Masonic Memorial was printed in the Thursday December 13, 1917 county newspaper. It said He was born in Washington county Georgia on February 13, 1875 and moved to Montgomery county in 1892. He married Miss Maggie O'Conner of near Kibbee on March 19, 1893. He died on August 17, 1917 and left a wife and five children. He was buried in the Hamilton Cemetery near Kibbee.

Do you think Margie O'Conner Johnson moved to Colquiit County after her husband died?
