Re: GREENING of Camden ARK
In Response To: GREENING of Camden ARK ()

Hi Kim,

Here is a complete transcription of the census information James found Also, a few other tidbits. I hope it helps!

1870 Census Liberty, Ouachita Co., AR
Enumerated on Aug 16, 1870
Juliet Greening 35 F B Keeps House b. AL*
Wm Greening 18 M B Works Farm b. AR
Richmond Greening 14 M B Works Farm b. AR
Purza? Greening 10 F B b. AR
Mager Greening 6 M B b. AR
Babe Greening 1mon M B b. AR born in May

living one door away:**

O. A. Greening 50 M W Farmer Property $1000 Personal $600 b. AL
Mary Greening 49 F W Keeps House b. NY
Julious Greenings 21 M W Works on Farm b. AR
Powell Greening 19 M W Works on Farm b. AR
Amanda Greening 16 F W b. AR
Duglas Greening 14 M W Works on Farm b. AR
Scot GReening 11 M W Works on Farm b. AR
Albert Greening 8 M W b. AR

* In the space where they indicate whether or not someone was married during the last year a "W" was written. I took this to mean that her husband probably died during the last year. This
enumerator chose to mark other widows with a W in this spot.

** I thought this might be a good lead when you start researching your ancestor before 1865. You will notice that both Willian's mother Juliet & O. A. Greening were born in AL. I found him in
the 1880 Census, too. His name was Orlando A. Greening. His father was born in SC. His mother was born in GA.

1880 Census Camden, Ouachita Co., AR
Enumerated June 3, 1880
William Greening Head B M 25 married Laborer on Farm b. AR Father Unknown Mother Unknown
Cicily Greening Wife B F 28 married Keeping House b. AR Father AR Mother AR
Mariah Greening Daughter B F 4 single b. AR Father AR Mother AR
Tildy Greening Daughter B F 2 single b. AR Father AR Mother AR
Henry Browning Stepson B M 8 single b. AR Father AR Mother AR
James? Rawlins Stepson B M 11 single Laborer on Farm b. AR Father AR Mother AR

This was the only other Greening family (apart from Orlando's descendants) in Ouachita in 1880. Perhaps this is the baby recorded in 1870?

1880 Census Liberty, Ouachita Co., AR
Ann Collins Head B F 25 widow Laborer b. TX Father TX Mother TX
Daniel Greening Boarder Mul M 9 single b. AR Father AR Mother AR

I couldn't find his other siblings in 1880. I did relocate Mager/Major in 1900.
