have my husband's 4th g-grandfather, William Green, b-06 February 1762 in Prince Edward, Virginia d- 02 March 1837 Pigeon River, Haywood County N.C. married Kizziah Patton Stroud on 09 Feb. 1781 she died 01 Aug 1849 Carroll Co. GA. He fought in the American Revolution and I have his application for his pension. Kizziah moved with her sons, Anderson and William Green to Georgia around 1832. Family states that Kizzah and William were not happy together so when her sons moved their families, she moved with them. My husband descends from William Mercer Green their son. He married Nancy Porter who died 06 Mar 1847 Carroll Co. GA.

Anderson Green moved to Carroll County, GA. around 1830. He bought land
ajoining his brother William on the Little Tallapoosa River, a few miles west of
Villa Rica, Carroll County, GA. in 1830. William bought 202 acres, Lot 137, District 6, from John Brooks for $1200.00 on July 24, 1830, witnessed by
William Porter, who was possibly William's father-in-law. Since William Green
had a son named John Y. Green who was born in North Carolina in October of
1831. it is believed that the family waited until Spring of 1832 to actually move
to Carroll County. William had built a log home on a high rise overlooking the
river near the road from Villa Rica to Temple. He called this home "Sugar Hill". This home remains in the Green family today. It was remodeled and additions were made over the years--and today it stands as a beautiful example of a two story antebellum style home with farmlands and pastures surrounding it.

@Kenna- My George was born abt 1803 in Haywood Co., NC. Most of his children went on to settle in Jackson Co., NC. I think I am pretty close to connecting Jeremiah Green as my George's father. Jeremiah was married in Rowan Co., NC. That's as far as I've gotten. Some names that repeat within my Green line are Jeremiah, Silas, Isaac,Pleasant (male name). I've seen where other researchers have connected this line to a Jeremiah Green Sr in New Jersey but I have no idea if that's correct or not.

to Tina Wyatt - In the same research I just did for Bartholomew, I found references to George Washington Greene, born April 8, 1811, in East Greenwich, R.I. and George Washington Green, born March 6, 1837 in Madison, Ohio. So far I haven't found references to their families, but I'm sure it's available. Are either of these men your G.W. Greene? Or maybe ancestors or??? The name itself seems like it would stay in the family ---
Good Luck

Hi, GeneJ - The information I have about Bartholomew Green comes from printed material I found through my public library, on Heritage Quest on line. It seems that Richard Henry Greene A.M. published booklets on several of the colonial families and a book or two, presumably when the families got larger. Also Samual A. Greene seemed to do the same. Also Henry E. Turner "The Greene's of Warwick in Colonial History". I think my favorite so far is by Lora S La Mance "The Greene Family and it's branches from A.D. 861 to A.D. 1904" - published in Floral Park, N.Y. by the Mayflower Pub. Co., 1904. (336 pages)
I have one part of a booklet, source not remembered, about Percival and Ellen Greene; they transported in the spring of 1635, were of Cambridge in 1836, and ' 'is supposed that he is a brother of Bartholomew, who settled in Cambridge in 1633. Thomas (Greene?) in his History of Printing (page 235) asserts this as a fact;
but his account of them in other respects is very inaccurate. ' There follows several pages of Percival & Ellen's history. Just found the source -" Percival and Ellen Green"
by Samuel A. Green, published 1861, 5 pages...publisher and city unknown.
The only other information I have is a paragragh in a Historical and Biographical book on historical figures in his area.
This being the only information I have so far may help open up new areas for other people to research and possibly tie in information - I certainly hope so. To me, this is a new source of information, and I'm still trying to connect the dots.
By the way, Caro and Ann Marie, if you read this, I think the Lora La Nance book sorts out the Surgeon John-Joseph problem I have quite thoroughly. Makes the wondering worthwhile - it forced me to do a little better research!

I have not worked on my Green/e line very much. I've gotten back to George Washington Green Sr in Haywood County, NC. Would be happy to share what I have so far.

to GeneJ - I've found a little information on your Bartholomew Green. I'd be glad to share,if you like. I haven't found his ancestral line yet, but I might run into it during my other research. Let me know - I'm not sure my printer will scan for e-mails, but I can try.

Sarah Green was one of my great g. g. g. g. g. g. g. g. grandmother's on my maternal side. She was born in 1689 in Virginia and died in 1734 in North Carolina. She married John Bobbitt. I have not conducted any research on this line yet.
Comment by Caro Nally on July 20, 2009 at 12:11pm
I wonder if his name was John Joseph Greene or Joseph John Greene and he just happened to go by one name or the other depending on his mood lol It's certainly quite interesting!!
