Notes

  • Charles is listed by that name alone, or as Charles H in mostcensuses.  The 1900 census has his name as Henry C, though thenext-born child was also named Henry.  His son Ishmael's obituarygives his father's name as Charles Henry Christian.

    "Ishmael Leland "Ish" Christian, Age 82, of Globe, passed awayNovember 16, 2004, at Heritage Health Care Center. He was born inMountain View, Oklahoma on October 3, 1922, the son of Tersal Georgine(Tabor) and Charles Henry Christian. ... Left behind in loving memoryare: his wife of 36 years, Mary E. Christian of Globe, AZ; ...brother, Dwayne Christian of Iowa; sister, Betty Jo Byrd of Willcox,AZ; brother-in-law, Bill Duncan of Catalina, AZ; ... His parents andsister, Billye Duncan preceded him in death."
    --  Obituary of Ishmael Leland Christian, Unknown Newspaper, Tucson,Arizona, 23 November 2004, http://ancstry.me/UfHMvd

    Here are the variations of Charles' name I have seen from sources:
    Henry C - 1900 census
    Charles -- uncle Bud Jenkins' list; 1910 census
    Charles H -- 1920 census; WWI Draft registration (Charles, But signedC H)
    Charlie H -- 1930 census

    It is not certain that Henry was also the name of this child.  But thepredominance of sources indicates that the name beginning with the Hwas the middle name, not the first, though he is Henry C in the 1900census.  His younger brother Henry is listed as simply Henry in allcensuses and his uncle's list of children, except the 1930 census forOakdale, Washita County, Oklahoma.  There he is listed as Henry C.

    Thus we have Charles H and Henry C.  This might explain why the 1900census enumerator got confused on the name of Charles and listed himas Henry C, which seems to be the younger brother's name.  I don'tknow what Henry's initial C stands for nor what Charles' initial Hstands for.

    In this census the birth place of his father was mis-recorded on everychild's entry, showing England, which was their grandfather'sbirthplace.  Charles' father William James was born in Mississippi.

    In 1920, Charles and his wife Teresa (listed as Treason in the census)are living in the same household with his parents William and Amanda,whose household also includes two other sons and their wives.

    In 1930 Charles is listed as Charlie H, and is still living in OakdaleTownship, Washita County, Oklahoma, where he grew up.  His mother isliving next door to him, alone as a window.  She is listed as Mandy MChristian.  Her middle initial M is a puzzle, since she is listed asAmanda L or Lucinda  or Mandy, or as Lucinda Amanda, in varioussources.
