Notes

  • The Green-Gregory family in Oklahoma knew this name as Mattie Loving.Her father's family was enumerated in 1880 as Loving.

    On Benjamin Franklin's certificate of marriage to Lucinda Brewer, thename is spelled Lovings.  It appears usually as Lovin in other publicdocuments and family records in several genealogies.

    We find the name of some of the Lovins in Texas spelled as Loving,such as the gravestone of Annie Louise Loving Green, b 1897 d 1982 inHale County, Texas.  It appears that Mattie's actual name was Mattie,rather than Martha.  Her Social Security number was issued to Mattie AGreen.  She first appears with her family in Pottawatomie County,Oklahoma. in the 1900 census.

    1900 Federal Census, Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma, 25 June, BurnettTownship, District 194, page 15B, Hse/Fam #278

    She married James Taylor Green in Fort Gibson, Muskogee County,Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, on 6 Feb 1902.

    In 1918, Taylor and Mattie were living in Duncan, when he registeredfor the US Military draft on 12 September 1918.  This registrationgives us his exact birth date, 27 June 1878, but no place.  The formused in 1918 eliminated birth place, which was in the 1917registration forms.  Before finding this Draft registration, I hadonly an approximate year from the census, 1879, and the state, Texas.It is likely he was born in Hill County, Texas, but I have not yetfound documentary evidence of this.

    U.S. World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
    James Taylor Green, age 40, born 27 Jun 1878  [no place]

    Occupation Farmer, self-employed, wife Mattie Green
    Brown Eyes, Brown Hair
    Registration 12 September 1918, Duncan
    Stephens, Oklahoma
    signed James Taylor Green

    I later found confirmation that Taylor was born in Hill County, Texas. On the death certificate of his daughter Mable, who died at age 2,his birth place is reported as Hill County, Texas.

    Texas Death Certificate, Registration #125099
    Mable Green
    Born 13 Feb 1926 Duncan (Stephens Co), Oklahoma
    Died 2 April 1928 Silverton, Briscoe County, Texas
    ** Father Taylor Green, born Hill Co, Texas **
    Mother Mattie Lovin, born Davis (Murray Co), Oklahoma
    Burial 3 April 1928 Silverton

    This means he was living on a farm in Duncan, but also selling realestate in Marlow.  In the 1910 and 1920 census, he is a real estateagent.  In 1920, however, the census shows him and the family livingin Marlow town.  So they moved from Duncan into Marlow betweenSeptember 1918 and January 1920.

    In 1920, Taylor Green is living in Marlow, Oklahoma, still working asa real estate agent.

    The birthplace reported her for the children's parents does not matchthe birthplace of Taylor and Mattie.  The enumerator appears to havejust copied Mattie's information for all the children.  Her birthplaceis also shown as Arkansas instead of Tennessee which we see in the1910 and 1930 censuses.

    By 1930, Taylor and Mattie have moved to Texas, farming in ParmerCounty.

    Mattie's mother's birthplace is now reported again as Tennessee, notArkansas.  On the children's entries, the birthplace of both parentsis correctly reported in this census.  Pearl is not their household,somust already be married.

    The Social Security Death Index reports Mattie Green's address at thetime of death as Friona, Parmer, Texas.  This is on the New Mexicoborder.  Mattie and Taylor Green are reported in the 1930 census forJustice Precinct 2 of Parmer County, Texas.

    Note that the SSDI differs on the day in October 1969 from familysources, which record 31 October 1969.  The latter date is on herdeath certificate.  The place of death reported by Linda Dudley in hergenealogy is Potter County, where Amarillo is located.  I learned inOctober 2010 from Hugh Green that Mattie was in a nursing home inAmarillo when she died.

    "Mattie Lovin Green. She did live in Friona, but had lived withdaughter Frieda (Merrick) in Amarillo for a time after Taylor's death. She was, however, a resident in a nursing home at the time of herdeath. She is buried with Taylor in Friona, Texas."
    --  Hugh Green, via Rachel Ruthatrt, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 17October 2010

    A copy of Mattie's death certificate, along with those of othermembers of this family, was sent to me in October 2010, along withHugh's information.  Her death certificate says she had been inAmarillo about 4 months.  Her normal residence reported in her deathcertificate was 908 Grand St, Friona (Parmer County), Texas.
