Re: Arkansas Research, Surname GREEN
Hi Roberta and all, I called Mr. Green today, he just got back to town. The man could not get off the phone, a good talker and very nice. Anyway, he didn't have anything on my family. As a matter of fact, he informed me that his grandfather told him that his people were 'dirt poor.' He wasn't trying to hide a probable fact that his ancestors could have owned slaves, he just said he was surprised to read my information because of what his grandfather had told him. After talking to him, we both agreed that there 'was' some kind of connection. And, he told me where his Green Family had migrated from in N. Carolina..Surry County. I didn't know that. Also, the family is showing up on the Surry County, NC 1850 census and also the same family is showing up on the 1850 Bradley County, AR. census. We discussed this issue, and I told him that the only thing I could think of was that the family was enumerated right before they left NC and was just in time for the count when they reached Bradley County, AR. Anyway, he's going to send me some of the information he has gathered during his 12 years of research on the Greens, and I can't wait to see them. In the mean time, I am going to mail him what I have on his family. He doesn't have any information regarding Arkansas, only that William HH Green married Eliza Hendricks in Benton County, AR. and had a daughter born near Little Rock.
Well, I'm off to Surry County, NC. Will keep you updated on my findings.
Have a wonderful week!
