Notes

  • The 1900 census reports Thomas was born in Texas, but the 1910 censussays Oklahoma.  His WWI and WWII Draft Registration says it wasJefferson County, Oklahoma.  That county was created at the foundiungof Oklahoma in 1907, out of mostly the Comanche-Kiowa-ApacheReservation and a small portoin of Chickasaw Naiotn.

    The Comanche Reservation had become open land, part of OklahomaTerritory in 1890.  So perhaps he was born in that area.  It seemsmore likely he was born in Texas, and the family moved to formerComanche land a few years later.  But the 1900 census, when he was 5years old, reported his birth place as Texas.
