  • The Chickasaw History reports that Charles Adams and FannieColbert-Green-Cochran had no children.  This source reports that theymarried in about 1879.  Then  the source reports that Fannie marriedher next husband, Theophilus East, on 13 May 1884.  But one ofCharles' children, Charles, was born abt 1885, estimated from his agein the 1910 census.  He could have been born in 1884.  So it hadpreviously appeared that he was Fannie's son.  Another child, Oliver,was born Dec 1881 according to the 1900 census.

    Later facts indicated that Charles wa born earlier, abotu 1880, sinceCharles abandoned Fannie while she was preegnant (apparently withOliver) in October 1880.  IN his 1902 Chcikasaw census card, Charleswas reproted as 22 years old, thus born about 1880.

    I had assumed this meant that Fannie and Charles had married about1880 or 1879.  This matches Chckasaw History.  But it also appearedthat both these sons were Fannie's.  Fannie would have been about 50when Oliver was born, possible, and a bit older when Charles was born,stretching it.  This owuld match the Chickasaw Archives report thatFannie and Charles married in 1879, and the Divorce testimony thatChalres abandoned Fannie in October 1880, while she was pregnant withtheir second child (Oliver, born Dec 1881).  However, if  the was bornin Dec of 1881 (instead of 1880), this means they still had to betogether till about at least March 1881.

    But if Fannie is not their mother, I do not know who the mother was,and the birth date for Charles Jr would seem to be wrong, if theChickasaw History source is correct about the marriage date of Fannieand Charles Sr.

    "She married Charles Adams circa 1879.  (Charles Adams is #26911.)She married Dr. Theophilus H. East in Berwyn, Pickens Co., ChickNation, IT, 13 MAY 1884.  They had no children."  [Other sorucesreport two children Charles and Oliver.]
