    1920 Federal Census, Eastland County, Texas, 5 February, Justice Precinct 2, District 106, page 19B, Ranger, Clay St (no house address), Hse #460, Fam #504
    Martin, Elbert E Head  Rents  M W 23 TX US US Tank Setter, Steel
    Martin, Eula Wife F W 17 Texas Missouri Texas
    Green, Andrew J Cousin M W 21 Texas US US Tank Setter, Steel

    This entry for Andrew J Green matches Andrew Jacob Green, son of James Daniel Green.  This report of Andrew as a cousin of Elbert strengthens the rumor that James Daniel is descended from the same line of Greens that Talitha Green Jackson (mother of Frances Randolph Brinkley) belongs to.

    Betty Jackson Hess had reported in one of her letters that this Green family spent a lot of time at the Jackson home.  She seemed to remember that James was the son of a brother of her grandmother (Talitha Green).  But the Green family in Oklahoma has no information on any children that would match this James Daniel.  This relationship of his son as a cousin of Elbert Martin indicates some connection, though it has not been documented yet. But as of 2016, no connection has been established.
