Interviewer: What church did you go to? Johnson: Started out as Baptist as they were. After I married, we went to the United Methodist. Currently we are United Methodists. Interviewer: Your Baptist church, was that when you were living in Rockdale? Johnson: Yes. My growing up years. Later on, after I got married, we searched for a Baptist, but we didn’t—my wife went to work back in Bryan and lived with a landlady who was United Methodist. She was, I guess, influential in getting us in the United Methodists. We wanted to have a place when we started having children, so we went United Methodist.
