He is duly identified upon the authenticated roll of 1880 as well as the census roll of 1896. His wife Victoria is identified upon the census roll of 1896, and he presents satisfactory proof of his marriage to his wife Victoria, in the month of April, 1896, too late under the laws of the Cherokee Nation for intermarried whites, to acquire rights by intermarriage. He states that he was formerly married to Nannie Terrell, and Nannie Terrell is duly identified upon the authenticated roll of 1880. She is now deceased. By said marriage, he had one son, Aaron, who is duly identified upon the authenticated roll of 1896. It will be necessary for applicant to file satisfactory proof of birth of his two younger children, Bean and Albert, their names not appearing upon any of the rolls of the Cherokee Nation. He makes satisfactory proof as to residence and is duly identified according to the pages and number of the rolls as indicated in the testimony, consequently Green Terrell and his three children, are enumerated within, will be listed for enrollment as Cherokees by Blood. From the fact that he was married to his wife, Victoria, a white woman, too late under the laws of the Cherokee Nation to acquire citizenship, the application for the enrollment of his wife, Victoria will be rejected.
