    Note that the birth place stated on this certificate is JeffersonCounty, Tennessee.  Research by family researcher Loretta Gregory Gayindicates that the birth place was actually in nearby Newport, CockeCounty, Tennessee.

    George Thomas Gregory went by Tom.  He is listed variously in thecensuses as George Thomas, Thomas G, and G T.

    In 1900 Tom (George) is 16 and at home with the family of Dock,reported in Township 4 of Chickasaw Nation.  Doc and Julia and thechildren are listed in the 1900 Federal Census in Chickasaw Nation,Indian Territory, 4 July, Township 4 South Range 4E, District 145,page 27A, Hse/Fam #402

    We have a marriage date for Tom and Fannie Belle Wilson on 6 November1906.  In 1910 census, he is married and living in Lincoln township,Comanche County, Oklahoma.  Lawton is the County Seat of currentComanche County.  This is west of Marlow, Stephens County, Oklahoma,where his father, Dock, was living in 1910.  His brother Ed is livingin his household.

    In the 1920 Garvin County, Oklahoma, census, Tom appears to have beencounted twice in the same county, but in different townships.  I thinkI know why this occurred.  Here is what I find in the census reports.

    We find Tom listed in the household of his father Dock, in ElmoreTownship of Garvin County.  In this household listing, Dock and Juliahave 5 sons living with them and all reported as single.  The names ofGeorge Thomas (Tom) are turned around, and he is reported as Thomas G. This also happened to his brother William Henry Harrison Gregory, whois reported here as Harris W, and in 1930 he was Harrison W.

    1920 Federal Census, Garvin County, Oklahoma, 25 January, ElmoreTownship, District 25, page 11B,  Hse #188, Fam #200, in the householdof his father, Gregory Dock G  Head  M W AL VA TN Farmer:
    Gregory Thomas G Son M W 36 Single TN AL TN Farmer, Working Out

    This report is confusing, though, because he is reported as single, asare all his brothers in the household.  We know he was already marriedwith two children in the 1910 census.  Tom and Fannie's children wereborn in 1908, 1909 and 1911.

    I also find a 1920 listing for GT Gregory, in his own household, withall the right names and ages of wife Fannie, children Hoyt, Otto andAnna.  They are reported as living in Lindsay Township in anunincorporated area.  But G T is reported as a Farmer.  I do not knowhow far outside the town of Lindsay the township of Lindsay would go.I know Elmore Township, where Tom's father was living, also as afarmer, is south and east of Lindsay.

    1920 Federal Census, Garvin County, Oklahoma, 6 January, LindsayTownship, District 31, page 2B,  Hse #36, Fam #39

    Gregory, Hoyt  Son M W 11 OK TN TN
    -- page 3A --
    Gregory, Otto  Son M W 10 OK TN TN
    Gregory, Anna  Dau F W 8 OK TN TN

    Family members refer to Dock as living in Elmore City.  Elmore Cityappears to have been incorporated or the name of the same townshipchanged between 1920 and 1930.  The location for Dock's family in 1930is Elmore City, Garvin, Oklahoma.

    It is quite plausible that Tom (GT) was living in Lindsay town, or atthe southern edge of Lindsay Township, towards Elmore Township, so wasenumerated with his household there.  A different enumerator wasreporting Elmore Township.  I would think that GT and his brotherswere working one farm with Dock.  Ed, who had been living with Tom inLincoln in 1910, is now listed again in his father's household inElmore.

    Tom did not live far from them, even though their houses are withintwo different township boundaries.  It seems likely to me that Dockreported all his children who were farming with him as part of hishousehold, while GT with his full household was separately reported inLindsay.  In Dock's family, no wife or children of Tom are reported.In fact Tom (Thomas G) is reported as single.

    This is understandable if the enumerator heard Dock say that he andhis sons were farming together, and Thomas G was one of the sons.  Theenumerator could have understood that to mean that Thomas G wasanother son still living at home, and thus reported him as single.  InLindsay, earlier in the month, the other enumerator there had properlyrecorded Tom and Fannie's household in town.

    It is interesting that in this 1920 census G T's father's place ofbirth is correctly reported as Alabama, but in 1930 this changes toTennessee.  This could be an enumerator error, who also recordedThomas' wife Fannie as born in Tennessee, as well as both her parents.

    In 1930, we find him as expected in his own household with Fannie, inLindsay Township.  But only two of the children are shown in thiscensus report:  Otto, age 20 and Anna age 19.  Hoyt was out of thehouse on his own in 1930.
