  • Most genealogies of this family lack this person.  He appears underthe name Daniel Redric Green in only in a few genealogies, and they donot document this person from other sources.  Note that this middlename appears to be a form of the first name of Fannie and DanielDavid's first son Reddick (Redie) Jackson Green.  In several sourceshe is David G Green, but no source has been found to explain what namethe G stands for.

    No son named Daniel is reported by the well-documented and detailedChickasaw History I cite in this genealogy for many details of theColbert Chickasaw family.  I do not find any Daniel Redric in anycensuses.  I have listed the person as Daniel G Green, based ondocumentation I discovered in September 2010.  (See further notesbelow.)

    Birth in genealogies reporting two brothers, birth dates are forReddick Jackson as about 1869 and for Daniel Redric as 1 April 1872.The Chickasaw history reports a birth date for Reddick Jackson asabout 1871.  The 1900 census reports Reddick's birthday as February1869.

    One genealogy (Powell family of Reddick's daughter Myrtle Emma GreenPowell) reports Reddick's birth as in 1872, matching the year reportedby a couple of others for the child named Daniel.  The 1900 census forFrances Colbert East reports her son Dan was born in April 1872, whichis close to the birth date on Reddick's grave marker 7 Feb 1872.

    One genealogy reports that Daniel Redric married a Sarah Powell in1907, and they had a son named Julius, born in 1914.  This matches ourDaniel G Green, who did indeed marry Sarah F Powell.

    Son Julius H Green M born abt 1914 in Oklahoma
    --  http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/person.aspx?pid=89844632

    This genealogy appears to have confused Daniel and his brother ReddickJackson.  Reddick appears to be the older and is reported in somesources to have been born in 1869 (before his parents' marriage).  Thedate of birth on Reddick's grave, however, is 7 Feb 1872.  But thisconflicts with Daniel's reported birth in April 1872.  There isanother conflict, since the reported marriage of Reddick's parents wasin October 1871.  They may have been married in a Chickasaw ceremonyearlier.

    The Powell genealogy reports a Julius (Andrew Julius Powell) as thehusband of Reddick's sister Myrtle.  They had one son named DanielRedrek Powell.  The censuses below indicate that Julius Powell wasSarah Powell's brother, and would explain why Daniel and Sarah namedtheir son Julius.
    --  Powell Family, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/12163053/family

    These similarities seem to support the idea of confusion of names ofFannie's children. On the other hand, Myrtle's naming one son DanielRedrek could indicate she is naming him after both brothers.

    The Chickasaw History reports the second son as simply Daniel, butestimates a later birth year than that reported by the familygenealogies.  Ages in censuses vary:
    "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."
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert,http://www.chickasawhistory.com/colbert/i0026899.htm#i26899

    Another Powell genealogy I found in September 2010 also hasinformation on Sarah Powell as the wife of Daniel Redric Green.  Butno documentation or sourcing information is provided in thisgenealogy.  Dan's older brother's name was Redrick Green.

    Several documents have become available from the ever-growing digitallibrary of Ancestry.com, and these have his name as Daniel G Green.One is a postal registered letter receipt dated in May 1907.  InNovember that year, Indian Territory became part of the new State ofOklahoma.  It was sent from Muskogee, Indian Territory (seat of theCreek Nation with a large white settlement.  He received it at theMarietta, Indian Territory, Post Office.  This is near the Texasborder.  Marietta is in what became Love County, Oklahoma.

    I found some census entries that appear to match Daniel, with a wifename Sarah F.  The 1910 and 1930 census has David G, indicating adifferent name from that of Redric reported by the series ofundocumented genealogies that appear to be copying each other.  Someof these also have mixed various random records for other individualswith the name Green so that they report various members of our familydying in Maine.  One of these careless coompilaitons even reports thisDaniel as born in Maine!  It is ludicrous to think that any of ourGreen family was ever in Maine.  I wrote two or three times to thecompiler of the first such genealogy, and never received anacknowledgment.

    In the 1910 census, Daniel and Sarah are in Washington Township ofLove County, Oklahoma, the right place for this family.  Both Daniel(D G) and his wife Sarah are reported as White.  But in 1930, Danielis an Indian, as well as his son.  Interestingly also, this isreported as the second marriage for both Daniel and Sarah.  To confirmthe identity of the family, we find Sarah Powell's parents in thehousehold.  I find that for Sarah's father, the enumerator says thisis also his 2nd marriage, but Ambrose and Minerva have been married 44years.

    Daniel's age here is greater than we expect from the birth datereported in family genealogies, 1 April 1872.  A typical variation incensus ages.

    By the 1930 census, they are living in farther east in McCurtainCounty, near Broken Bow, in the Washita Mountains.  Genealogies tellus that Sarah's father died in this area.

    Daniel is reported as an Indian.  His father is Mixed Blood and hismother Chickasaw (in place of a place of birth).  This is the firstreport I have seen that reports Daniel David Green as part Indian.This would mean that Talitha and Jackson and other siblings alsopassed on their Chickasaw blood, but I have not heard or seen anyfamily evidence or records of this.  What we know indicates the Greenlineage comes from Cherokee.  But they did not overtly maintain thisidentity; this was not part of the common family oral history.  Ithink this is an enumerator error.

    My research indicated that farther back we have Eastern Cherokee inthe Green line, from Meshack's wife Lucretia, and possibly other Greensources.  This is uncertain.  But in the 1850 and 1960 censuses whereI had records for Daniel David, race was not reported.  Daniel DavidGreen died in 1878, and I have found no census for this family in1870.  No censuses were taken in Indian Territory until 1890 forOklahoma Territory and 1900 for Indian Territory.

    In December 2012 I found the 1940 census for Daniel's niece MyrtleEmma Green and her husband Andrew J Powell. In their household isreported a Daniel Green, age 72 (born about 1868).  We would expectDaniel to be about 68 years old in 1940.  The age of 72 matchesDaniel's older brother, Myrtle's father Reddick Jackson Green, but heis reported as Andy Powell's brother-in-law.  Daniel married AndrewPowell's sister Sarah and he is also Myrtle's uncle.
