    Florence was apparently first married to a Johnson.  A child whosename is written oddly in the census is reported in the 1930 census, asa grandson of Florence's father, Jim W Wright.  It appears to beTomie, but is transcribed by Ancestry as Tonnie.  But Florence isreported under her maiden name as Florence Wright.  Oklahoma marriagerecords are not online.

    In the 1940 census, Ancestry transcribed the name of Florence's son asTonnie and in 1930 as Tohnnie.  I tried hard to make this first letterlook like a J to make Johnnie, a common first name for someone namedJohnson.  And the spelling in the 1940 census -ohnnie makes it lookmore like Johnnie.  But I realized soon after that he was mentioned inhis stepfather's obituary, and his name there is Tommie.

    Florence Johnson is enumerated in the census with her son and hersecond husband Clarence Philpot.  They are enumerated next door toClarence's brother Joseph R Philpot's family, including their fatherNewton.

    Tommie's name was confirmed when I realized accidentally that Ialready had his name in his stepfather's obituary.
