As I have done my Adams research, the use of the name "Green", either as a first or ,more often, as a middle name, has come up often even in lines that obviously are not mine. Does anyone have any idea as to its origin as it relates to the Adams family?
My g-g-g-grandfather was James Adams (1795-1857) who was married to Frances Herndon (1800 -1840). They had one child named Green who died in infancy and my g-g-grandfather, Thomas Green Adams (1839-1884). Any help would be appreciated . Thank you.
