  • In 1900 Reddick and his family are living just a few houses down from his mother Frances (Colbert Cochran Green) East, and he is enumerated on the page of the census following her.

    Note that the 1900 census reports Reddick's birthday as February 1869, which is before the reported marriage of his parents in Chickasaw Nation in 1871.  The Chickasaw History online reports a birth date for Reddick Jackson as about 1871 and that of his brother Daniel as about 1874.
    --  Chickasaw History, Redie Jackson Colbert, http://www.chickasawhistory.com/colbert/i0029612.htm#i29612

    Only a handful of genealogies, which are poorly documented, report Reddick Jackson's brother Daniel.  Later information confirmed in censuses and some family information that Reddick had a brother named Daniel G Green  It appears to be this Daniel reported in the household of Myrtle Green Powell in 1940, reported as 72 years old, which matches a date of birth around 1868, matching the older brother Reddick Jackson, instead of Daniel G Green.

    As we often find, dates as objective and set facts, were not part of the worldview of people in that era.  We often find discrepancies in age and birth dates.  But these Green family dates are more confused than usual in the documentation sources and genealogies.  Modern expectations of exactness from collected data were not major values in the focus of folks in that era.

    The date of birth on Reddick's gravestone is also different than that reported by the 1900 census.  The census reports his birth as February 1869, while the grave reports 7 February 1872.  The 1900 date matches more closely with the 1940 census record, which would make birth in 1868.  We commonly find a one-year error in the 1900 census.

    The Powell genealogy, compiled by descendants of Reddick's daughter Myrtle, reports that Reddick's birthday was 7 February 1872, while the date given for the supposed brother Daniel Redric is 1 April 1872.  This obviously conflicts.  It is interesting that the birth date the Powell genealogy reports is close to the birth date others report (without documentation) for Daniel Redric Green.

    If Reddick was born in February 1972, this is only 4 months after the reported marriage of his parents.  This is the birth date on Reddick's grave marker.  This is possible, but seems unlikely.  Perhaps the official marriage ceremony and recording was later than they actually married under Chickasaw custom.  But in the 1900 census his brother Daniel is reported as born in April 1872 and Reddick in Nov 1969.  So there are conflicts on all sides.  Reddick's Dawes age matches most closely with a birth in 1869.

    "I did learn an interesting fact about the Greens in the Lakeview Cemetery in Marietta. The Greens were moved there from a family cemetery located south of Marietta at some point. The Love County historian was invited to our Chickasaw family reunion & we were discussing families in Love County. The Greens came up & she told me about an article in the Marietta Monitor that told about the cemetery."
