trip with my aunt. We'll be traveling through KY, TN, SC, NC, VA, IN
and IL. Would appreciate any shread of help from others with info on
this family before I leave. Will share anything I have.
Hezekiah J. (Johnson?) PICKETT and Mary Ann/Alice GREEN were married
Nov. 27, 1834, in Campbell Co, KY. Dont have any info on their parents
or where they were before KY and IL. Hezekiah died in the mid 1840s.
His widow remarried as Mary Ann PICKETT to Isaac HARPER, May 7, 1846/7,
in Randolph Co, IL, and had at least one child.
You might consider researching the Robert Green family that settled in
Virginia in about 1710. Some of his grandchildren went to Kentucky after the
Im very confused about Beals wives and children. There were four Beal
PICKETTs around Randolph County, IL in this time frame, and I dont
have them figured out, yet. Also searching for a PICKETT-BEAL/BEALLE
marriage in the late 1700s. Since this is obviously a family name
passed down, Im assuming that BEAL is a maternal surname.
There is a BEALL list on the internet that you might consider subscribing to.
This family goes back to Ninian Beall born about 1610, who settled in
I hope these quick comments will help.

My Great Grandfather was William M. Green, born November 5, 1829 in Haywood
County, North Carolina, who married Sophronia Adaline Coltharp in Texas in
1853, but as an infant, moved to Carroll County, Georgia in about 1830 with
his parents, William Mercer Green, born about 1786 in Burke County, NC, and
his wife Nancy Porter. Both are buried in the Old Bethel Cemetery near Villa
The names and dates of your William M. Green don't match, but the simularity
of names caused me to answer your posting. Do you see any connections?

Fran maybe you could post my query to the Green discussion group because I
have only one or two Greens in my family tree.
In 1808 the Grayson Co., VA Court entered two orders placing the custody of
Daniel BEDSAUL's children: Sarah and John with John GREEN, and Mary Bedsaul
was placed with Isaac EDWARDS.
Wanted:John Green and his wife_?__ who cared for Sarah and John Bedsaul: the
young children of Daniel Bedsaul and Margaret Edwards .
My Virginia Surnames are: Arthur/Edwards/Newman/West/Scaife
Grayson Co., is in SW Virginia just at the state line of NC/VA and was Wythe
Co. between 1790-1793 and Carroll Co after 1842
Would this be a possibility? I would appreciate it since I am already
subscribed to several lists and I'm afraid my mail box will be overwhelmed w/
another subscription. Beth in FL

Good morning Green members,
This morning, after reading my e-mail, I clicked on an advertisement for
Barnes and Noble listed at the bottom of my aol screen. Just out of
curiosity, I typed in "Green family genealogy" on their search engine and
came up with the following listing:
Green 1712-1901 Genealogy of the Family of WM. Green of Long Island,
Referring Especially to the Descendents of his son Ambrose Green by Sarah E.
Frazier, W.C. Green paperback price $9.50 hard cover $19.50 special
This isn't my line, but I thought I would pass the information along to all
the list members.
Good hunting everyone,

My father brought over a bible last night, that he got from his father's
youngest half sister. She said the bible belonged to my great-great-
grandfather, Lucious Leroy GREEN (1852-1932, Randolph Co., AL). The
bible is in very poor condition. There is no family section in it (though
it appears there might have been at one time) and there is no publication
page with a date in it. Most of the pages are loose. Among the pages
were pages from two different books. One was a school reader dated 1850.
The other was from a Hostetters (?) book and was about constipation. (A
perversion of the health!) Also among these pages was the biggest treasure--
a handwritten receipt to Lucious' father, John Cephas GREEN, for two bales
of cotton. The receipt was dated 1855 and was written in West Point, GA.
It was signed by a McClendon. The receipt is on a piece of paper about
3.5" x 6 or 7".
What should I do to preserve this receipt and store it? Also, has anyone
had a bible rebound? The bible is a large "table-size" one, perhaps five
or six inches thick. I'm not sure how many pages might be missing yet, as
many appear to be out of order. The edges of the paper appear to be fragile,
but they are in amazingly good condition judging by the rest of it!

Not sure who your last was directed to but I am a descendant of Thomas Greene
of Malden. Our lineage went from Thomas through three Henry's so don't think
I could be of any help. I also wonder about our Thomas's ancestors in
England as I haven't seen anything published that would pin down our line.
I too sent some info to Rick Harwood in Thailand. He is a descendant of
Betsey Harwood who married Noah Green, my direct line.
Let me know if there is anything you want relative to my line as I would be
happy to share it.

Does anyone have any information about the wife of Thomas Green? It has
been suggested that she was Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth
Lynde from Prestbury. Is this accurate? Are there further details on her
family? Are these Lyndes related to any of the New England Lyndes?
Also Thomas's son Henry married Esther Hasey [Hazzey, etc.]; her mother
is said to be Mrs. Sarah Seward. Does anyone know Sarah's maiden name?
I have a second line that runs through Thomas Greene's son Samuel, and
have a similar question about Samuel's mother-in-law, Mrs. Francis
(Watson) Wheeler Cook, wife of Richard Cook and widow of Isaac Wheeler.
Does anyone have any information about Francis's family?

I know this is a long shot,but could there be a connection with my
Sarah Greene (b 1782) married to Sanders Taylor?? They were in
Marshall Co according to the 1850 census. He is buried at Red Banks
cemetery (1857) but Sarah died in Memphis,TN 1865.Perhaps Sarah
was a sister or near relative to your Greenes! Let's compare notes.

Hi GREEN searchers,
Can anyone help me figure out who the parents of my Isaac Morgan Green, b.
21 Oct 1809, NY were? A census listing says he was born in Yates Co, NY,
but that can't have been because Yates Co wasn't created until later.
Isaac was a ship master who lived in Oswego, Oswego Co, NY from at least
the 1820s until 1865. There was a Robert Green who was a sailmaker in
Oswego that I believe may have been Isaac's brother. Robert was born about
1800 in NY.
Isaac married 1st Helen PEELER, 2nd Olivia ALLEN, both born NY. There was
also probably a connection to a MORGAN family as this was Isaac's, one
son's, and a grandson's middle names. Please help--I'm stumped. Will
happily share what info. forward from Isaac I have. Thanks!
