I try to be careful about what I give out because I try to be careful about what I incorporate into my own research.Sources are important to me. I have Henry and Arabella's death certificates, Arabella's certificate of guardianship, book sources on the Wicker line (as well as some early German church records), which was Henry's mother Eve Chapman Greene's mother's line.I have a copy of the newspaper article which decribed Arabella's father's murderers being hung.I do not recall using this site before and just happened upon it from a link.I did notice that when you answered, my e-mail showed that the site had responded.otherwise, I would probably never find it again!
I knew Aunt Lizzy, Aunt "Mahretta" (the way we said Marietta) and "Uncle Frank" and have some interesting stories - or they might be interesting to a Greene!They were "greats" to me and my own aunt discussed them at length before she passed away.
I cannot prove who Henry's grandfather was, although one of Andrew's descendents gave me a copy of the information her father wrote down before he passed away.He said William Frederick Greene was the name, but I have no proof.I think Silas McGrady is Isaac's father, but I have no proof. Sarah Ann Dyess' (Arabella's mother's line) is well-documented back to South Carolina.Lanahassee and Webster County, GA, courthouses burned and there are years where there is no documentation.
I guess my concern is the lack of documentation here because this is an informal forum.I suppose it depends on the purpose of the research.I do have documents proving Henry and his father's civil war service.I always wondered why the aunts had a civil war officer's sword - and now I know.They were in the Georgia militia.The Georgia archives sent me their files.
I have corresponded with descendents of several of Henry's grandchildren, and we're all stumped at the same place.Who was Francis Marion Freene's father.
