  • Most genealogies of this family lack this person.  He appears under the name Daniel Redric Green in only in a few genealogies, and they do not document this person from other sources.  Note that this middle name appears to be a form of the first name of Fannie and Daniel David's first son Reddick (Redie) Jackson Green.  In several sources he is David G Green, but no source has been found to explain what name the G stands for.

    No son named Daniel is reported by the well-documented and detailed Chickasaw History I cite in this genealogy for many details of the Colbert Chickasaw family.  I do not find any Daniel Redric in any censuses.  I have listed the person as Daniel G Green, based on documentation I discovered in September 2010.  (See further notes below.)

    Birth in genealogies reporting two brothers, birth dates are for Reddick Jackson as about 1869 and for Daniel Redric as 1 April 1872.  The Chickasaw history reports a birth date for Reddick Jackson as about 1871.  The 1900 census reports Reddick's birthday as February 1869.

    One genealogy (Powell family of Reddick's daughter Myrtle Emma Green Powell) reports Reddick's birth as in 1872, matching the year reported by a couple of others for the child named Daniel.  The 1900 census for Frances Colbert East reports her son Dan was born in April 1872, which is close to the birth date on Reddick's grave marker 7 Feb 1872.

    One genealogy reports that Daniel Redric married a Sarah Powell in 1907, and they had a son named Julius, born in 1914.  This matches our Daniel G Green, who did indeed marry Sarah F Powell.

    --  http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/person.aspx?pid=89844632

    This genealogy appears to have confused Daniel and his brother Reddick Jackson.  Reddick appears to be the older and is reported in some sources to have been born in 1869 (before his parents' marriage).  The date of birth on Reddick's grave, however, is 7 Feb 1872.  But this conflicts with Daniel's reported birth in April 1872.  There is another conflict, since the reported marriage of Reddick's parents was in October 1871.  They may have been married in a Chickasaw ceremony earlier.

    The Powell genealogy reports a Julius (Andrew Julius Powell) as the husband of Reddick's sister Myrtle.  They had one son named Daniel Redrek Powell.  The censuses below indicate that Julius Powell was Sarah Powell's brother, and would explain why Daniel and Sarah named their son Julius.
    --  Powell Family, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/12163053/family

    These similarities seem to support the idea of confusion of names of Fannie's children. On the other hand, Myrtle's naming one son Daniel Redrek could indicate she is naming him after both brothers.

    The Chickasaw History reports the second son as simply Daniel, but estimates a later birth year than that reported by the family genealogies.  Ages in censuses vary:
    "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."
    --  Chickasaw History, Francis Colbert, http://www.chickasawhistory.com/colbert/i0026899.htm#i26899

    Another Powell genealogy I found in September 2010 also has information on Sarah Powell as the wife of Daniel Redric Green.  But no documentation or sourcing information is provided in this genealogy.  Dan's older brother's name was Redrick Green.

    Several documents have become available from the ever-growing digital library of Ancestry.com, and these have his name as Daniel G Green.  One is a postal registered letter receipt dated in May 1907.  In November that year, Indian Territory became part of the new State of Oklahoma.  It was sent from Muskogee, Indian Territory (seat of the Creek Nation with a large white settlement.  He received it at the Marietta, Indian Territory, Post Office.  This is near the Texas border.  Marietta is in what became Love County, Oklahoma.

    I found some census entries that appear to match Daniel, with a wife name Sarah F.  The 1910 and 1930 census has David G, indicating a different name from that of Redric reported by the series of undocumented genealogies that appear to be copying each other.  Some of these also have mixed various random records for other individuals with the name Green so that they report various members of our family dying in Maine.  One of these careless coompilaitons even reports this Daniel as born in Maine!  It is ludicrous to think that any of our Green family was ever in Maine.  I wrote two or three times to the compiler of the first such genealogy, and never received an acknowledgment.

    In the 1910 census, Daniel and Sarah are in Washington Township of Love County, Oklahoma, the right place for this family.  Both Daniel (D G) and his wife Sarah are reported as White.  But in 1930, Daniel is an Indian, as well as his son.  Interestingly also, this is reported as the second marriage for both Daniel and Sarah.  To confirm the identity of the family, we find Sarah Powell's parents in the household.  I find that for Sarah's father, the enumerator says this is also his 2nd marriage, but Ambrose and Minerva have been married 44 years.

    Daniel's age here is greater than we expect from the birth date reported in family genealogies, 1 April 1872.  A typical variation in census ages.

    By the 1930 census, they are living in farther east in McCurtain County, near Broken Bow, in the Washita Mountains.  Genealogies tell us that Sarah's father died in this area.

    Daniel is reported as an Indian.  His father is Mixed Blood and his mother Chickasaw (in place of a place of birth).  This is the first report I have seen that reports Daniel David Green as part Indian.  This would mean that Talitha and Jackson and other siblings also passed on their Chickasaw blood, but I have not heard or seen any family evidence or records of this.  What we know indicates the Green lineage comes from Cherokee.  But they did not overtly maintain this identity; this was not part of the common family oral history.  I think this is an enumerator error.

    My research indicated that farther back we have Eastern Cherokee in the Green line, from Meshack's wife Lucretia, and possibly other Green sources.  This is uncertain.  But in the 1850 and 1960 censuses where I had records for Daniel David, race was not reported.  Daniel David Green died in 1878, and I have found no census for this family in 1870.  No censuses were taken in Indian Territory until 1890 for Oklahoma Territory and 1900 for Indian Territory.

    In December 2012 I found the 1940 census for Daniel's niece Myrtle Emma Green and her husband Andrew J Powell. In their household is reported a Daniel Green, age 72 (born about 1868).  We would expect Daniel to be about 68 years old in 1940.  The age of 72 matches Daniel's older brother, Myrtle's father Reddick Jackson Green, but he is reported as Andy Powell's brother-in-law.  Daniel married Andrew Powell's sister Sarah and he is also Myrtle's uncle.
