    1920 Federal Census, Jackson County, Oklahoma, no date, Altus Ward 2,District 99, page 6B, 612 West Southerland St, Hse #107, Family #129

    Briscoe, Is J Son  M W 14  Mexico TX TX (b abt 1906)

    Is J appears to be Isaac Jefferson, named for his grandfather.  Hisbirthplace is written as Old Mexico, then written above appears to beAm Cit, likely meaning American Citizen.  Did they move to Mexico fora short time, where Isaac was born, before moving back to Oklahoma?It would have been about 1905 after the birth of John, and they wouldhave moved back in 1919, as 1 January was the census date in 1920.

    Isaac's Social Security record reports his actual birth was inNovember 1905.  This is consistent with a move sometime in 1905 orlate 1904.  With the short time frame, it is likely Telitha waspregnant during the move.
