Notes

  • Loretta Gregory Gay records this name as Charlie Bluford, based onfamily memories.  1920 Garvin County, Oklahoma, Federal Census recordsshow his name as Charles B., age 38.  Social Security also records hisname as Charles.

    In 1900 Charlie is enumerated in the first Federal Census thatincluded the Indian Nations.  Charlie's father Dock Gregory had movedthe family from northern Texas to Earl, Oklahoma, but they areenumerated in Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory.  Earl itself was inJ County of the old Oklahoma Territory, near the border with IndianTerritory.  Perhaps the Gregory homestead was actually across theborder east into Chickasaw Nation, accounting for their enumerationthere.

    In 1910 Charlie is 21 and reported in the household of his parentsnear Marlow, Oklahoma.

    In 1920 Charles is still single and living on his parents farm, butworking elsewhere.

    In 1930, Charlie is married and in his own household with Annie Cauble(Cobble) four houses down from his father Dock.  An oddity occurs inthe listings on this page.  Both Dock and Charlie are given the middleinitial of G.  Dock was also listed as Dock G in 1920.  Members of thefamily do not know where this G comes from.  For Charlie, we know hisname is Charles Bluford, documented as Bluford or initial B in severalsources.

    Charlie is listed as Chas G.  Charles and Annie's oldest child isVivian, at age 9.  It appears that they got married in 1910, after thecensus of that year.  In 1920, Charles B  is listed as living in thehousehold of his father in the same locale of Elmore Township.

    In 1930, the census still designates their page as in Elmore Township,but I notice that Ancestry designates their location as Elmore City,whereas in 1920, Ancestry designates this as Elmore Township.  In thiscensus, the place of birth of Charles' father is changed to Tennessee,whereas it has previously been Alabama.  This also happened with hisbrother Tom's entry in the 1920 census.

    Charley and Annie divoced before the 1940 census.  Charley isenumerated in the household of his 84-year-old father and his brotherEdd in Elmore City.  Annie is enumerated with her second husbandHerman Roberson in Lindsay, as Anna Roberson.  Her two children Virgiland Vivian are in their household.

    Gregory, Edd Son M W 53 Single Grade 8 b Tenn same house in 1935 FarmLaborer

    The family records and the Social Security Death Index agree thatCharlie's birth date was 25 December 1881.  This census, however, givehis age as 46.  It should be 48, since he would be 49 in December of1930.  In 1920 he was reported as 38, which would match the properbirth date.
