Other facts


Birth of son Living GREEN


  • Oscar is the son of James Daniel Green, who appears not to be related to the other lineage of Greens married into the Jacksons of Parker County, Texas.  The genealogy and family notes for James Daniel Green were provided to Green-Jackson researchers by Houston Green, a descendant of J D.

    The information he has states no place of birth for Daniel's children, but reports that James Daniel was a full-blooded Chickasaw Indian from Oklahoma City.  However, the censuses recording J D and his family list them all as White.  I have noted that in states other than Oklahoma, there are few recordings of people as Indian, and "White" is usually a designation in contrast to only "Black" or "Negro."

    Oscar is first reported in the 1910 census as a child of James Green, living in Cooke County (Gainesville area), Texas.  The 1900 census tells us that Oscar's older brother Andrew was born in Weatherford.  We don't know the year they moved from Weatherford to Cooke County, but since they are living in Cooke County, Texas in 1910, this may indicate that Oscar and his sister Jessie (spelled Jesse in the census) were born in Cooke County, Texas.

    Oscar's family is back in Weatherford before the 1920 census, and this is their location for the rest of their lives.  We do not have details to specify when they moved to Cooke County, or back to Weatherford.

    Oscar's family moved to Parker County, Texas, where he lived the rest of his life.  In 1930 we find he has married the widow Mollie Isabel Morgan Green, and they are living in Weatherford town.  Mollie is reported in family tradition to have been the daughter of the Mayor of Weatherford.
