    Julius is called Julia here, though designated as a male.  Other problems in this enumeration include the date of birth and age recorded here for Minerva (Called Manuell).  Her birth date is clearly Apr 1846, but the accompanying age, just as clearly written, is only 51.  Another anomaly is the birth date of Julius' sister Sarah here, which does not match other sources, notably the 1880 census, where she is already reported as 3 years old.

    Andrew married Myrtle Emma Green, whose grandmother was Frances Colbert of the famous Chickasaw line of leaders whose name came from a Scottish settler in old Chickasaw Naiton in Mississippi who had married into the nation.

    Marriage 8 Mar 1908
    Parents:  Ambrose Powell, Minerva R Foster

    --  Bishop Family,

    Andrew and his wife (Myrtle) Emma were reported in the 1910 Ardmore, Oklahoma, city directory.

    Ardmore, Oklahoma, City Directory, 1910, p 126

    The month the 1910 directory was published was not available.  They are living in Ardmore, which is in Carter County.  In April when the census was taken, they were living south of there, near Marietta, in Washington Township, Love County.

    The draft registration seems to indicate that Andrew was born in the Cleveland Community, an unincorporated town in Conway County, Arkansas.  There is also a Cleveland County, but the placement of the name on the form seems to indicate the town of Cleveland, with the county name unwritten.  Cleveland County is in the southeast of the state, off the trajectory from Choctaw Nation.

    This Daniel Green is the husband of Andrew's sister Sarah Powell.  He is also Myrtle Green Powell's uncle, being the brother of Myrtle's father Reddick Jackson Green.

    Andrew's death is reported in the panhandle of Texas.  I have not learned when they traveled that far west.
