  • Sources available to Linda Hanks indicate that Daniel was also calledDavid or Dave.  It appears his full name was Daniel David.  The 1850census in Gilmer County, Georgia has an entry that can be read bothways, due to the uncertain handwriting. transcribes hisname in 1850 as David.  One of his brothers, Jackson Green, named ason Daniel David also.

    Fellow Green-Jackson researcher and cousin Kati Jackson Caindiscovered a tax-roll records collection for Cooke County,  Texas inwhich we find records for Daniel and his father Toliver in severalyears.  Toliver is listed on tax rolls for several years in the 1860sup to 1866.

    Daniel and his father are both listed in 1862.

    Daniel's father Toliver Green was in the Texas State Troops duringpart of the Civil War, being mustered out in June 1864.  Daniel, hisfather and his uncle Abraham Jackson served in the Texas State Troopsand Confederate States army.  Daniel was in the TST initially, thenwas mustered out so he could reenlist in the regular CSA, still in anassignment for defense of the frontier, according to his muster rollcard.

    Green family tradition in Oklahoma reports that Dan (Daniel) marriedan Indian woman.  But no one had any further details on place ortribe.  In October 2007 I found a genealogy with information on whatappeared to be our Daniel David Green, married to Frances Colbert.

    Dave (also went by Daniel or Dan) lived in Love County, Oklahoma,where other members of the Green-Jackson families lived, and DanielGreen is listed in the burial information for Lakeview Cemetery, LoveCounty, Oklahoma.  The genealogy gives no commentary of informationabout Frances' family ethnicity.  Her parents are not listed.  I laterfound some further information from what appeared to be a laterversion of the Sherman genealogy, though anonymous.
    --  L Sherman,

    Dan had a nephew also named Daniel David Green, the son of his brotherJackson and Clarinda Barnett, who went by Dave.  Dan and his Chickasawwife Fannie, and their family, were known to current (2015) members ofthe Green-Gresogry-Jenkins famliy in Oklahoma and Texas.

    We learned details of their contacts and permanent residence inChickaasaw Nation through the reseaarch of Kati Jackson Cain,researching Chickasaw Nation records in October 2015.

    "I have found permits for "T. Green" and his license is issued underFrancis (Colbert) Cochran, now we also know how Daniel Green andFrancis Colbert met. There's also a permit for a William Jackson. Heended up married to a Chickasaw woman named Annie Donovan."
    --  Kati Jackson Cain, email to cousins Orville Boyd Jenkins andMarion Mixon, 24 October 2015

    Permits  No 9  Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation Jan 13th 1870
    "This is to certify that T Green is duly employed by Mrs FrancesChockrain [Cochran] for one year from date.   As farmer.  Given undermy hand, this day and date above written.
    Wm P Worthington District Clerk"

    During the 1870s, Dan is documented in legal documents of the WesternDistrict of Arkansas, the US jurisdiction for US citizens living inIndian Territory, administrered form Ft Smith and Van Buren, Arkansas. The court records are found with names of Abraham Jackson and relatedGreens, Jacob, Daniel and Jack, in the Ft Smith, Arkansas area.  Inone of these Dan and his brother Jack (Jackson) are charged withassault with intent to kill; in the U S Federal Court for the WesternDistrict of Arkansas, which handled judicial matters for U S citizensin the Indian Territory.  There are a couple of other trespasses,included cattle rustling, but disposition of these case is not there.

[defendants] wererequired to give a joint bond in the amount of one thousand dollarsfor their appearance on the 1st day of the next May term to wit May10th 1875"

    No documentation of the final trial has been found.

    Dan's brother-in-law Abraham Jackson is also documented in these courtrecords.  Abraham (Abe) had been in Indian Territory in the Civil War. Military records seem to refer to our Abraham Jackson, in theScanland Squadron, Texas Company A.  This was part of the WellsRegiment.  They were stationed in Ft Arbuckle, Oklahoma.  The Jacksonslater lived not far south of there, in the Ardmore and Marietta areas. This Squadron was active in CSA operations in northeastern Oklahomaand Northwestern Arkansas.

    The latter location would also link Dan, Abe and Dan's brothers Jacoband Jackson to that area, where all four are named in court records onvarious causes in the US Court for the Western District of Arkansas,which handled judicial matters for U S citizens in Indian Territory.

    There was no census for Indian Territory residents in 1870, so thereis a gap in our knowledge of the location of homesteaads.  Danielmarried Frances on 8 October 1871, according to the Sherman genealogy. He died in 1878, so we will not have any census documentation oftheir marriage or family.  Frances went by Fannie.  Chickasaw Historyreports this date.  This entry is found under Frances' record.

    "She married Daniel Green in Berwyn, Pickens Co., Chick Nation, IT, 8OCT 1871.(1702) (Daniel Green is #26909.) Daniel was born circa1848.(1703) Daniel died before 1879. Marriage records show his name as"David" but Dawes records for his son give it as 'Daniel'."
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert,

    In the 7 years of their marriage, Daniel and Frances had threechildren that are recorded by the Sherman genealogy.  There was onegirl named Minnie Lee Green, and two boys.  Another genealogy of thefamily records only Minnie Lee.  I later found a 1900 census recordfor Fannie as a widow with two of her children, reporting them all asChoctaw Indians, living in Chickasaw Nation.  Her son living next doorto them is also reported as Choctaw.  This is probably due to theiroriginal registration in Choctaw Nation where they living at the timeof the first Indian roll registration.  Originally, also, theChickasaw and Choctaw shared an allotment area, which was laterseparated for each tribe.  (See Notes for Frances Colbert.)  Therewere three additional children who died as infants.

    The names of the boys are unusual, and the two sons have names thatare forms of the same name:  Reddick "Redie" Green and Daniel RedricGreen.  The second son's middle name Redric looks like a variation ofthe first name of the first son's name Reddick.  In May 2008 I found a1900 census record for Reddick J Green, of an age matching the oldestson.  This census reported Reddick, his wife Etta and their twochildren as White.

    I could not find any census record confirming the existence of thechild reported in the genealogy as Daniel Redric.  The name Redriclooked like an error or a variation for Reddick, his older brother'sname.  I have found no documentation of a middle name of Redric thatsome of the genealogies have.  But in 1900 he is in his widowedmother's household as Dan Green.  In September 2010, I found somecensus entries that appeared to match this reported child Daniel.  The1910 and 1930 censuses report him, however, as Daniel G.

    The Chickasaw History reports the second son as simply Daniel:
    "Daniel Green (#26910) was born in IT circa 1874. Daniel enrolled inMarietta, Pickens Co., Chickasaw Nation, IT for the Dawes ChickasawRoll on 3 OCT 1898 and appears on Dawes card number 1615.(1716)"
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert,

    Daniel was Fannie's second husband.  Her first husband, Samuel HunterCochran, who died at an unknown time before Fannie's marriage to Danin 1871.  She also had a third husband, Charles Adams, who diedsometime before 1888, when she married her fourth husband, TheophilusH East.  The 1900 census record for 1900 showing her as a widow namedFrancis East.  But this appears to be a social fiction, because therywere divorced.  Theophilus testified in his 1904 interview with theDawes Commission in regard to his citizenship in the Chickasaw Nationthat Fannie had left him and they divorced in about 1892 in CanadianCounty, Oklahoma Territory.  The transcript reports that he providedpapers, but they were not included in the transcription.

    The Colbert family genealogy I found with all this great informationreported that Theophilus and Fannie died the same year, 1910.  Butdeath reccords report that Theoplhilus died in 1917 in Colorado, fromcomplications during surgery.
