Notes

  • According to the enumeration in 1900, John is a Chickasaw (Half), witha white father and Chickasaw mother.

    1900 Federal Census, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, 22 July,Township 2, District 163, page 3B, Hse/Fam #13

    I found Leonard is nearby in the 1900 census.

    1910 Federal Census, Stephens County, Oklahoma, 30 April, Marlow Ward3, Stephens, Oklahoma, District 239, page 15A, Hse #283, Fam #290
    Briscoe, John T Head M W 57 Married for 37 yrs TX MO TN Farmer  Owns
    Briscoe, Malissie Wife F W 53 Married for 37 yrs  9 children/9 livingAL -- AL
    Briscoe, Auther Son M W 23 TX TX MO (should be AL)
    Briscoe, Johnnie Dau F W 18 TX TX MO (should be AL)
    Briscoe, Maude Dau F W 14 OK TX MO (should be AL)

    Note that in the 1900 census, John was listed as an Indian(Chickasaw), but now he is White, as is his whole family.  Thishappened with many families in Indian Territory.  Johnnie matches Johnof 1900, but here Johnnie is a daughter and a girl, while John was ason and a boy!  For some unknown reason, the enumerator wrote that themother of these children was born in Missouri, even though he recordsMalissie as born in Alabama.  Note also that Maude's birth state isnow reported as Oklahoma.  This matches the 1930 census.  This isprobably the correct state.  This would indicate that John and Malissamoved to Indian Territory between 1892 and 1896.

    Note the amazing report here of Arthur's age -- only 2 years olderthan in the 1920 census!  I double checked these to be sure this isthe correct report actually written in the census record.  Two olderchildren not appearing in these censuses are reported by the FainFamily Genealogy, which also tells us that John Briscoe was born i nKaufman County, Texas.

    Here are the children reported by that genealogy:
    Leonard Briscoe b 1875
    Jane Briscoe b 1878
    Maggie Briscoe b 1881
    Arthur Briscoe b 1886
    Fannie Briscoe 1888 - 1972
    John Briscoe 1892 - 1973
    Maude Briscoe 1897 - 1992
    --  Fain Family,http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/10151217/person/-498339419

    The Fain Family Genealogy reports that John died in Texas, but doesnot report the location.  I have found no documentation of his placeof death, other than that the 1930 census reports him still in Marlow,Stephens County, Oklahoma.  He died in 1932 and was buried in Marlow,so I think the report of death in Texas is an error, though he couldhave been on a business trip or family visit in Texas.

    A memorial on Find A Grave gives us J T's death date, but does notinclude a photo of his gravestone.
