    The first information I (Orville Boyd Jenkins) had about FrancisRandolph came from her grandson, Marion Mixon, who contacted me and wehave worked together on the Jacksons and Greens and related linesconsiderably.  In most sources her full name is spelled as Francis,rather than Frances.  She was known as Fannie.

    In 1900, we find Fannie Randolph in the first census of IndianTerritory, with her mother, who is reported under her first marriedname of Talitha Jackson.  There was some indication that Talithamarried an Elijah Jackson, and the father's name on Fannie's birthcertificate is Eliga [Elijah] Randolph, but the certificate reportsmother unknown.  (Birth certificate information was provided byFannie's daughter Audna Mae Brinkley Morris, according toJackson-Mixon family information.)

    So there was some thought among the family that Talitha raised ElijahRandolph's daughter as her own, but was not her mother.  All thesesources and possibilities have been extensively researched andanalyzed by Fannie's grandchildren Marion Mixon and his sister CindyMixon Beam, who have worked with me on the Green-Jackson families.

    If Talitha was married to Elijah Randolph, then it appears thatTalitha reverted to her Jackson name when Fannie's father ElijahRandolph left them.  In 1900 Talitha and Fannie are living withTalitha's daughter Alice and her husband Newton Philpot.

    In 1902, Fannie was baptized by the Freewill Baptist Church ofBurneyville, Love County, Oklahoma.  Her Baptism Record reads:
    "Fannie Randolph professed faith in Christ in the year of our Lord1902 and united with the Freewill Baptist church at Burnieville [sic],Oklahoma."

    I found the census for Forrest and Fannie in 1920-30.  1920 reportsher name as Fannie T.  The 1910 and 1930 censuses do not have hermiddle initial, and also list her by her nickname Fannie.  Francisactually had four given names, according to a famliy sources.

    "She was named after all the aunts.  Francis Telitha Cindy Clarenda(miss spelled probably).  Her father Alegia [Elijah] Randolph leftOklahoma a month before she was borned.  He took his son Lee Randolphwho was 10 years with him.  He went to Weatherford to sell land.  Henever came back. She said they thought he was from Campot [Camp Potts,or Potts Camp], Miss."

    Note that here the middle initial of Fannie is reported as T, whichwould stand for the name Telitha/Talitha.  The most common initial infamily sources is C.  Family sources report that the T is for Talitha. A family Bible with some birth dates reports "Francis Tlitha [sic]Brinkley was born May 25, 1881"

    Two Poll Tax Receipt were found in Fannie's Trunk after her death, nowin the possession of her son Marion Mixon.  These documents reportedthe length of residence in the state and the county.  Note the largediscrepancy in these periods of time between the 1921 and 1927documents.  In 1921, Fannie is reported to have lived in Texas for 35years and in Parker County for only 2 years.  But in 1927, the figuresreport Texas residence 20 years and Parker County residence 20 years.

    Note that the place of birth is given here as Ardmore, Oklahoma.  Theinformation of Fannie's birth in Ardmore must have been reported byfamily members at the time of her death.  Yet some family membersbelieve she was born in Marietta, in Love County (south of Ardmore),where various members of the Jackson and related Green families lived. Marietta is recorded as her birthplace in a Family Record shared withme by her grandson Marion Mixon.  Other relatives lived in Marietta.My grandmother Alpharetta Mae Green, daughter of Toliver Jorile Greenand Fannie's second cousin, was born in Marietta.
