Sandra or anyone,
Is there anyway to find out, whether or not my John, could be linked to one
of these John's? I know he had to be born, sometime before 1800, because my
descendant Jackson Monroe Sr., was born in 1812. He was the 4th child of
John, and Diallia Morris, according to the info I have. Their youngest son
was Green B. Since his name, was John, and the Green name appears, which was
carried on to my great-grandfather, Joseph Green, could these be the same
family, as the ones you have listed below? Or could it all just be
circumstance? I feel like I am running in circles, and getting nowhere. Any
