Notes

  • Family sources report that Toliver Jorile Green was born on 22November 1873.  This is the date on his grave.  However, his WWI Draftregistration reports his birth as 22 November 1872.

    Toliver Jorile was born in Hill County, Texas.  The 1930 census agreeswith this information from family records.  However, in other censusesJoe reported (or the enumerator recorded) that he was born inOklahoma.

    Joe's cousin, James Toliver Jackson, was born In Hill County, Texas,also about 1.5 years earlier.  T J's parents, Jackson and Clarinda(Barnett) Green, married in Hill County, where both their familieswere living.

    The Barnetts had moved there from Illinois after 1860.  The Greens hadcome from Georgia to Cooke County, Texas before 1860, and moved toHill County later.  James Toliver Jackson's parents, Abraham andTalitha Jackson (Jackson Green's sister), appear to have moved therefrom eastern Indian Territory, probably Cherokee Nation, to HillCounty in about 1871.

    Toliver Jorile moved with his family to the Marlow, Oklahoma, area in1908.  He is listed as Joe Green in the 1910 Richland, StephensCounty, Oklahoma census.  In 1920 and 1930, he is listed as Joe T.This reverses the order of his names Toliver Jorile.  He also signedRetta's school report card as J T Green.  His draft card records hisname as Toliver Jorile Green, as family records have it.

    These census entries indicate how he preferred to refer to himself,using the more common Joe as the primary name, rather than Jorile orToliver.  I have known of other people reversing the order of firstand middle for public or business purposes.  My son Christopher KevinJenkins goes by Kevin, and is known in his company as Kevin C Jenkins.

    T J's use of the name Joe is confirmed in the obituary report of hisyoungest son Paul Donald (Donnie) Green (d 10 March 2008).  Donnie'sparents are reported as Toliver Jorile "Joe" and Margaret CrenshawGreen.

    He married Luada (or Lou Ada) Caledonia West in 1894.  I don't have arecord for them in the 1900 census.  In the 1910 Stephens County,Oklahoma, Toliver Jorile is a widower living next door to DockGregory.  Toliver Jorile's daughter Alpharetta Mae (Rettie) latermarried Dock Gregory's son Andy.

    Green, Homer  Son F W  3  OK OK OK

    Since Joe (Toliver Jorile) is a widower In the 1910 census, he marriedhis second wife Mollie Stroud Williams Lane (twice widowed) sometimeafter this census.  Joe's WWI Draft Registration provides his fullname and other details in 1918.  The fact that he gives his daughteras nearest of kin would seem to indicate that he had not yet marriedMollie Stroud.  On these registration cards, normally the wife isreported as next of kin.

    In 1920, T J is married to his second wife Mollie Stroud.

    Note the change in birthplace for the children's mother, from Oklahomato Alabama.  This means they put the birthplace of the StepmotherMollie, instead of the birth mother, Lou Ada Caldonia West.  Joe'smother is also reported as born in Alabama, as reported also in 1910.However, on his brother James Taylor Green's report, his mother'sbirthplace is shown as Illinois.  In 1930 Illinois is also reported asthe birthplace for Toliver Jorile's mother.

    We learned from Barnett family census enumerations, however, thattheir mother Clarinda Barnett was actually born in Tennessee beforeher father moved the family to Illinois after the death of Clarinda'smother.  (See notes for Clarinda Barnett and Jorile R Barnett.)

    In 1930, Toliver Jorile is listed again as Joe T, with his third wifeMaggie D.  This would be Margaret Drucilla Crenshaw Welch, whose firsthusband has died.  In the household with Joe and Maggie are Joe's sonHomer (listed here as Homer B), Joe and Maggie's son Paul D (Donnie),and Maggie's four children Annie, Thomas J, and twins Berley J andPearl I Welch.
