  • Loretta Gregory Gay, Green-Gregory genealogist and compiler of family information, reports that Mary Green married a Peacock, but the family did not have the information on his full name or his family relations.

    A genealogy of the Mumford-Murratti lineage seems to represent this Mary as the wife of a John Timothy Peacock.  Censuses of this couple place them in places consistent with locations of other members of the Green and related  families.  The genealogy reports her full name as Mary Malissie Green, and her birthplace as Palo Pinto County, Texas.  This county is near other north Texas counties where Mary's siblings, cousins and other relations lived.  Census reports are consistent with the reported date and state of birth or Mary Malissie reported by the Mumford genealogy.

    Mary's brother Jackson Green was born in Hill County, Texas, as was their nephew James Toliver Jackson.  Palo Pinto is three counties northwest of Hill County.

    Census records of John T and Mary M Peacock may be for the correct individuals in the family.  Discrepancies in the reported birth state of this Mary cast some doubt on this.  But inconsistencies limit our weighing too heavily the validity of these censuses.  The censuses report her parents variously born in Texas, Missouri, Arkansas or Georgia.

    Four censuses report that John Timothy Peacock's wife was born in Arkansas, while one reports her born in Indian Territory.  It seems from other family information that she was born in Texas, but it could have been Indian Territory.  The Mumford genealogy reports her born in Palo Pinto County, Texas.

    I have not found John Timothy in the 1940 census.  When Mary was enumerated with her son Arthur still in the household, Mary was reported as married but no husband was reported.  Where was J T at census time and why was he not reported as a member of this household?
