Notes

  • Wiley seems to be the middle name, though it is the one most found inrecords.  In 1920, he is enumeraterd in the census as John W.  Butusually he is Wiley, or even wiley J as in 1900.  In this census,Wiley's wife is listed as Hannah W.  But Hanna was her family name.You will see that in other censuses she is named Mollie, a nicknamefor Mary.  It may be that Mollie was actaully her given name.

    1900 Federal Census, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, 4 June, F1Township 8SR1, District 151, p 2A, Hse/Fam #17

    The census tells us that Wylie and Hannah (Mollie) married about 1881. This is consistent with the report of birth of their daughter MaryFrances in June 1882, according to Mary Frances' gravestone.  MaryFrances and her husband Enoch A Jackson are living in this householdwith them.  Note that the census reports her birth year as 1883, oneyear later, as we commonly find in the 1900 census.

    Jackson, Enoch A  Son-in-law  W M  Oct 1876  23  TX GA GA  Farmer
    Jackson, Mary F  Daughter  W F 16  June 1883  TX TN TX

    Originally they were reported as in the same household but with adifferent family number.  Later corrections of the numbering in thecensus eliminated the separate family number for Enoch and Mary.

    1910 Federal Census, Love County, Oklahoma, 5 May, WashingtonTownship, District 171, page 17A, Hse/Fam #314
    Gracy, Wiley Head M W 50 Married 28 years TN TN TN Farmer Rents Farm[b abt 1860]
    Gracy, Mollie Wife F W 43 Married 28 years TX SC GA [b abt 1867]

    Gracy, Gardner Son M W 9 Single OK TN TX Farm Laborer [b abt 1901]
    Gracy, Claud Son M W 6 Single OK TN TX Farm Laborer [b abt 1904]

    In 1920, Wiley is listed by his first name as John W.  His birth statehas now changed from Tennessee to Alabama.  We know this is the sameperson, however, because the name of the wife Mollie and the childrenmatch.  The variations of names in this census tell us some moredetails about the family members.

    1920 Federal Census, Love County, Oklahoma, 5 February, HickoryTownship, District 125, page 6A, Oswalt Road, Hse/Fam #102
    Gracy, John W Head Rents M W 62 AL AL AL Farmer [born abt 1848]
    Gracy, Mollie Wife F W 54 TX NC GA [born abt 1866]
    Gracy, Jessie L  Son M W 23  Single TX AL TX Farm Laborer [born abt1997]
    Gracy, Ben G  Son M W 18  Single OK AL TX Farmer [born abt 1802]
    Gracy, Claud E  Son M W 15  Single OK AL TX Farmer [born abt 1905]

    We know from this record that Wiley's full name is John Wiley.  Ben Ghere matches Gardner in the 1910 census.  We get a middle initial Lfor Jessie and Claud's initial E.  Note that Jessie L was reported asJessie D in 1900.
