Notes

  • The name Wall appears in some sources as Walls.

    Julia Virginia Terry Jenkins, in a personal interview by Lou IlaJenkins, about 1955, reports the date of marriage for her parents.  Noplace of marriage was reported in the information from Jennie.

    Originally Mattie was thought to have married Thomas Duncan inGeorgia.  They are recorded in the 1900 census in McDonald, MurrayCounty, Georgia.  Julia Virginia (called Jennie in the 1900 census)married Joseph Asa Jenkins In Marlow, Chickasaw Nation, in March 1901. But then I discovered that they were recorded in the 1880 census inMcLennan County, Texas, where Jennie was born in December.

    Finding these Texas records finally resolved an uncertainty within thefamily information, where Jennie was reported to have been born inTexas, but the only details anyone could remember was that she camefrom Georgia, and continued to speak with a light Georgia accent.(Latter reported to me by my father, telling me about his mother whenI was a child.)

    Other Terry family members were in McLennan and surrounding Texascounties and remained there.  Thomas Duncan and Mattie moved back toGeorgia, where the rest of their children were born  before they movedto Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory.

    All the children recorded in the 1910 census in Oklahoma are reportedto have been born in Georgia. The Terry Family History informationwith Thomas Duncan Terry's name and family tree did not have his wifeor children.  Other details match closely with the information inJenkins family history for the father of Julia Virginia Terry,concerning her mother Mattie Wall and the place of birth of JuliaVirginia as Georgia.

    His father's name on the Terry family History website was William.Julia Virginia reported that her grandfather Terry's name was WilliamBarney Terry.  Her reported name of her grandmother as Julia AnnRoberts also matches the Terry Family History.  The Terry Familywebsite, while presenting very much historical and family information,had many gaps.  One was that they report no wife for Thomas D (andalso lack his middle name, having only the initial).

    The information provided by Jenkins-Terry information and the notesfrom Jennie on four generations of her family, leave no doubt thatthis is the same family lineage.  This fills in the whole piecemissing from the Terry Family History on the branch of Mattie andThomas Duncan's descendants.  The extensive family informationrecorded by Lou Ila Jenkins in the 1950s also provided the name ofMattie's parents and some of her brothers, which confirmed andextended some tentative information already put together in the 1970sby Harold Christian in the Jenkins Family History.

    Some census data reported Jennie born in Texas, but this wasquestioned by the overall picture from family tradition till I finallyfound the Texas records  The census reports all the children born inGeorgia.  This would mean they moved to Marlow, Indian Territory,after the birth of Rama in 1905.  But the marriage date of JuliaVirginia is March 1901.  See more discussion on this in the Notes forThomas Duncan and Julia Virginia Terry.

    Likely cause:
    The census official erred in reporting Georgia as the birth of Rama,based on the fact that all the other children were born in Georgia.This would be a minor error in census reporting compared to many Icommonly find in previous censuses.

    We have no independent information on when Thomas Terry moved hisfamily to Indian Territory.

    The gravestone of Mattie W Terry gives a different year of birth thanthat reported by the family members and other sources.  The grave hasonly the year 1859, two years earlier than the exact date given by herdaughter Jennie (Julia Virginia) and by Betty Gregston in her family'sgenealogy.  The 1900 census agrees with the family in the month andyear it reports.

    The 1900 census records that Duncan and Mattie had been married 20years.  This means it was later than June 4 1879, and before June1880, in order to say they had already been married 20 years at theJune 1900 census.  Based on the birth of the first child Jennie (JuliaVirginia), I had determined they were married no later than 8 April1880.

    In May 2007, I learned an exact date from notes discovered by mymother Lou Ila Gregory Jenkins.  Thomas and Mattie were married 1January 1880.  It appears they were living in Texas at the time, nearTom's relatives who had moved earlier form Georgia.  In June 1880,Mattie was enumerated in McLennan County, Texas with her husband nd nochildren yet.  But her first child Julia Virginia (Jennie) was bornthere in December of 1880.

    Next door to them is a family named Wall.  This would be kinfolks ofMattie Wall Terry, but I cannot figure out exactly how they are kin.We think Mattie's father was born about 1840, while she was born in1861.  So this cannot be her brother.  Perhaps it is an uncle, ayounger brother of her father.  Having initials only in these entriesmakes it harder to discover their identities.  What were the censuspeople thinking!?

    Tom and Mattie Terry were in Georgia in June 1900.  They appear in the1900 census in McDonald District, Murray County, Georgia.  This censusconfirms Thomas D's middle name as Duncan. This name is otherwiseattested, but in most sources he is listed as Thomas D Terry.  Thebirth states reported for the children indicates that Tom and Mattiemoved from McLennan County, Texas, where Jennie was born, before 1884,when Nannie was born.  I have no other details concerning theirpresence or the move from Texas back to Tom's home area in Georgia.The last child's name, which should be Ouida, looks like Orda.
