Notes

  • Family information conveyed to me by Loretta Gregory Gay, indicatedthat Toliver Green married Amanda Tatum West near Marietta, ChickasawNation, Indian Territory.

    I later found their marriage license, however, which shows they weremarried in Cook County, Texas, a few miles south of Marietta acrossthe Red River.  Most likely the ceremony took place in the county seatof Gainesville, where the certificate would have been issued.Further, the certificate indicates they were both residents of CookCounty.

    Greene, James Head  W M Jan 1861 39 Married 11 years TX GA GA Owns
    Greene, Amanda Wife W F  Feb 1861 39 Married 11 years 4 children/4living GA GA GA

    Greene, Stella W F May 1893 7 Ind Terr Texas GA
    Greene, Lizzie W F Jun 1898 1 Ind Terr Texas GA

    The first child in this enumeration, Loula, appears to be Amanda'sdaughter with her first husband Gus West.  Because of the similarityof the name, I at first thought it was Lou Ada Caldonia.  Notice thather father's birth state is "Unknown" instead of Texas, as the laterchildren of James.  But the family has no information on another childof Amanda and her first husband Gus West.  We have information onlyfor Lou Ada, born in 1877 (3 years old in the 1880 census) and GeorgeTaylor West, born in 1879.  The birth date given here for Loiula is 10years younger than Lou Ada West.

    In the 1910 census for Richland Township, Stephens County, Oklahoma,we find related families living adjacent or close to each other.  Dockand Julia Gregory live next door to Joe Green.  Joe's daughterAlpharetta Mae (listed as Reta in this census) later married Dock'sson Andy (Anda) Gregory.  James Toliver and family live just a fewhouses down, recorded on the same page of the census.

    Green, Stella  Dau F W 14 OK TX GA Farm Laborer
    Green, Lizza  Dau F W 11 OK TX GA Farm Laborer

    This census reports that this is a second marriage for both JamesToliver and Amanda (Mandy).  I do not have information on JT's firstwife.  This census reports that James and Mandy have been married 20years.  The date the family has for the marriage is 1888, which wouldmean they have been married for 22 years, or depending on the month,21 years at time of the 1910 census.  The death of Augustus Westoccurred at some unknown earlier date.

    James Toliver's daughter Lizzie Leona is listed in the 1910 StephensCounty, Oklahoma, census as Lizza.  The enumerator has manymisspelling, even of common names, on this page, which containsseveral family units of my Green or Gregory family.  For instance, afew families above on the same census page, Andy Gregory shows up asAnda Gregory.  Dock looks like Dolf.  Retta Green looks like Re-a.

    In 1920 they are living int he same location, in Richland Township,near Marlow, Stephens County, Oklahoma.  Note the discrepancy in agedifference between Ella and Stella.  In 1910 Ella is 18 and Stella is14, while in 1920 there is only 1 year difference in their ages.  Ellahas aged only 7 years, while Stella has gained 10 years since the 1910census.
