  • Sources available to Linda Hanks indicate that Daniel was also called David or Dave.  It appears his full name was Daniel David.  The 1850 census in Gilmer County, Georgia has an entry that can be read both ways, due to the uncertain handwriting. transcribes his name in 1850 as David.  One of his brothers, Jackson Green, named a son Daniel David also.

    Fellow Green-Jackson researcher and cousin Kati Jackson Cain discovered a tax-roll records collection for Cooke County,  Texas in which we find records for Daniel and his father Toliver in several years.  Toliver is listed on tax rolls for several years in the 1860s up to 1866.

    Daniel and his father are both listed in 1862.

    Daniel's father Toliver Green was in the Texas State Troops during part of the Civil War, being mustered out in June 1864.  Daniel, his father and his uncle Abraham Jackson served in the Texas State Troops and Confederate States army.  Daniel was in the TST initially, then was mustered out so he could reenlist in the regular CSA, still in an assignment for defense of the frontier, according to his muster roll card.

    Green family tradition in Oklahoma reports that Dan (Daniel) married an Indian woman.  But no one had any further details on place or tribe.  In October 2007 I found a genealogy with information on what appeared to be our Daniel David Green, married to Frances Colbert.

    Dave (also went by Daniel or Dan) lived in Love County, Oklahoma, where other members of the Green-Jackson families lived, and Daniel Green is listed in the burial information for Lakeview Cemetery, Love County, Oklahoma.  The genealogy gives no commentary of information about Frances' family ethnicity.  Her parents are not listed.  I later found some further information from what appeared to be a later version of the Sherman genealogy, though anonymous.
    --  L Sherman,

    Dan had a nephew also named Daniel David Green, the son of his brother Jackson and Clarinda Barnett, who went by Dave.  Dan and his Chickasaw wife Fannie, and their family, were known to current (2015-2017) members of the Green-Gresogry-Jenkins famliy in Oklahoma and Texas.

    We learned details of their contacts and permanent residence in Chickaasaw Nation through the reseaarch of Kati Jackson Cain, researching Chickasaw Nation records in October 2015.

    "I have found permits for "T. Green" and his license is issued under Francis (Colbert) Cochran, now we also know how Daniel Green and Francis Colbert met. There's also a permit for a William Jackson. He ended up married to a Chickasaw woman named Annie Donovan."

    Permits  No 9  Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation Jan 13th 1870
    "This is to certify that T Green is duly employed by Mrs Frances Chockrain [Cochran] for one year from date.   As farmer.  Given under my hand, this day and date above written.
    Wm P Worthington District Clerk"

    A few months later, Frances Cichran married Toliver Green';s son Daniel Green.  This establishes the proximity of the Green family.  They actually lived just over the ed River from the area of Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation, where Frances lived.  This T Green could be Daniel and Jackson's father Toliver Green.  It could also be Tom Green, now known as another name for Jackson Green.

    The name Tom Green also appears with Dan Green and Abraham Jackson, husband of their sister Talitha Green, and is otherwise unidentified in family information.  The trio is referred toether in several illegal exploits, so must have been regular cronies.

    One such legal document from that era clarifies who this Tom Green was.  Another court record found in the Ft Smith/Van Buren records of the Westeren District of Arkansas identified charges against Dan Green and Jackson Green, aka Tom Green,  The warrant noted that charges were originally filed against them as Dan Green and Tom Green.

    So Tom Green was the same person as Jackson Green!  This would iinform us that Dan and Talitha's brother Jackson was named either Thomas Jackson Green or Jackson Thomas Green.  Both these names are found in the family lineage.  There is a pattern in this line of using the middle name as the common name, so it seems likley Jackson was his middle name.  We are lisitng him in this genealogy as Thomas Jackson Green.

    During the 1870s, Dan is documented in legal documents of the Western District of Arkansas, the US jurisdiction for US citizens living in Indian Territory, administrered form Ft Smith and Van Buren, Arkansas.  The court records are found with names of Abraham Jackson and related Greens, Jacob, Daniel and Jack, in the Ft Smith, Arkansas area.  In one of these Dan and his brother Jack (Jackson) are charged with assault with intent to kill; in the U S Federal Court for the Western District of Arkansas, which handled judicial matters for U S citizens in the Indian Territory.  There are a couple of other trespasses, included cattle rustling, but disposition of these case is not there.

    "Came the defendants in custody of the marshal and the witnesses for the government not having arrived, the prosecuting witness being sick, the defendants waive an examination of the charge, to which the District Attorney assents."  Wherefore the defts. [defendants] were required to give a joint bond in the amount of one thousand dollars for their appearance on the 1st day of the next May term to wit May 10th 1875"

    No documentation of the final trial has been found.

    Dan's brother-in-law Abraham Jackson is also documented in these court records.  Abraham (Abe) had been in Indian Territory in the Civil War.  Military records seem to refer to our Abraham Jackson, in the Scanland Squadron, Texas Company A.  This was part of the Wells Regiment.  They were stationed in Ft Arbuckle, Oklahoma.  The Jacksons later lived not far south of there, in the Ardmore and Marietta areas.  This Squadron was active in CSA operations in northeastern Oklahoma and Northwestern Arkansas.

    The latter location would also link Dan, Abe and Dan's brothers Jacob and Jackson to that area, where all four are named in court records on various causes in the US Court for the Western District of Arkansas, which handled judicial matters for U S citizens in Indian Territory.

    There was no census for Indian Territory residents in 1870, so there is a gap in our knowledge of the location of homesteaads.  Daniel married Frances on 8 October 1871, according to the Sherman genealogy.  He died in 1878, so we will not have any census documentation of their marriage or family.  Frances went by Fannie.  Chickasaw History reports this date.  This entry is found under Frances' record.

    "She married Daniel Green in Berwyn, Pickens Co., Chick Nation, IT, 8 OCT 1871.(1702) (Daniel Green is #26909.) Daniel was born circa 1848.(1703) Daniel died before 1879. Marriage records show his name as "David" but Dawes records for his son give it as 'Daniel'."
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert,

    In the 7 years of their marriage, Daniel and Frances had three children that are recorded by the Sherman genealogy.  There was one girl named Minnie Lee Green, and two boys.  Another genealogy of the family records only Minnie Lee.  I later found a 1900 census record for Fannie as a widow with two of her children, reporting them all as Choctaw Indians, living in Chickasaw Nation.  Her son living next door to them is also reported as Choctaw.  This is probably due to their original registration in Choctaw Nation where they living at the time of the first Indian roll registration.  Originally, also, the Chickasaw and Choctaw shared an allotment area, which was later separated for each tribe.  (See Notes for Frances Colbert.)  There were three additional children who died as infants.

    The names of the boys are unusual, and the two sons have names that are forms of the same name:  Reddick "Redie" Green and Daniel Redric Green.  The second son's middle name Redric looks like a variation of the first name of the first son's name Reddick.  In May 2008 I found a 1900 census record for Reddick J Green, of an age matching the oldest son.  This census reported Reddick, his wife Etta and their two children as White.

    I could not find any census record confirming the existence of the child reported in the genealogy as Daniel Redric.  The name Redric looked like an error or a variation for Reddick, his older brother's name.  I have found no documentation of a middle name of Redric that some of the genealogies have.  But in 1900 he is in his widowed mother's household as Dan Green.  In September 2010, I found some census entries that appeared to match this reported child Daniel.  The 1910 and 1930 censuses report him, however, as Daniel G.

    The Chickasaw History reports the second son as simply Daniel:
    "Daniel Green (#26910) was born in IT circa 1874. Daniel enrolled in Marietta, Pickens Co., Chickasaw Nation, IT for the Dawes Chickasaw Roll on 3 OCT 1898 and appears on Dawes card number 1615.(1716)"
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert,

    Daniel was Fannie's second husband.  Her first husband, Samuel Hunter Cochran, who died at an unknown time before Fannie's marriage to Dan in 1871.  She also had a third husband, Charles Adams, who died sometime before 1888, when she married her fourth husband, Theophilus H East.  The 1900 census record for 1900 showing her as a widow named Francis East.  But this appears to be a social fiction, because thery were divorced.  Theophilus testified in his 1904 interview with the Dawes Commission in regard to his citizenship in the Chickasaw Nation that Fannie had left him and they divorced in about 1892 in Canadian County, Oklahoma Territory.  The transcript reports that he provided papers, but they were not included in the transcription.

    The Colbert family genealogy I found with all this great information reported that Theophilus and Fannie died the same year, 1910.  But death reccords report that Theoplhilus died in 1917 in Colorado, from complications during surgery.

    "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."
