Thanks so much for the info. I can't imagine why he wasn't
living with his family as I can't see a mother giving up a
child at the age of 10 (though I czn certainly understand
it if the kid was about 16) and leaving the country without
taking him with.
I couldn't remember the name STOW when I wrote the 1st
message. All the paper-work before that has if listed as
Downham Market, Downham, both registers also Downham,
NORFOLK. Then somewhere along the line it was explained
that it was changed to Stow Bardolph.
How current are the census listed. Hope it's not
71 Years as it is here. They just released the 1940 Census here.
They had anyother of the Johnsons listed as born in acouple of different locations, and with the common name of
John it's a challenge to find----especially if you don't
own a computer.
Thanks again for all your help.
