3. JOSEPH2 GREEN (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1726 in Maryland, and died Bef. 1776.

Notes for JOSEPH GREEN:
The wife of Joseph Green was probably the Mary Green found in early Berkeley county tax lists. She
had a John Butt living with her in the first tax list in 1785, so she may have been the widow of a Butt
when she married Joseph. There is a William Green from Ohio co. (now Brooke Co.) WV who died in
1798 and was buried on Hunter's Run in Fairfield Co., Ohio. William was with the Green party, headed
by John & Ruhama Green when he died. William left an estate file in Brooke WV. This is a likely
candidate for the son of Joseph Green.

i. WILLIAM3 GREEN, b. Abt. 1750.

DIVORCE OF RIGNAL GREEN OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY OHIO
From the General Assembly Microfilm # M250, year 1834 at the Ohio Historical Society:

Mr. Anthony, from the committee on the Judiciary, to which had been referred the petition of Rignal
Green for a divorce from his wife Sarah, together with the remonstrance of the said Sarah, and the
accompanying depositions, have had the subject under consideration and report. That the
petitioner places his application, to this legislature, upon the ground.

1st, of the willful absence of the wife, to whom he alleges he was married July 15, 1829, and who
left him in September following and has remained away ever since, although he always conducted
himself towards her as an affectionate and dutiful husband.

2nd on account of the adultery of the wife, in various instances, and with different persons, and
especially on the 1st of January, 1830, and at other times, with one Abraham Williamson.

3rd, because, at the November term of the Supreme Court, in 1833, a petition for a divorce, which
the petitioner had filed in Fairfield County, was dismissed by the Court, and, as he alleges, for the
want of the evidence of a witness, who was sent to jail by the court, for using improper language to
the Court. Whether the wife brought any property to the husband, or whether they acquired any
thing whilst together does not appear by the petition, nor does it appear from any of the documents
submitted to the committee, that any notice of the present application was given to the said Sarah
until the 25th December, 1834, the very day on which the first depositions were taken, and of the
taking of which she was notified in the same written notice.

The remonstrance of the said Sarah Green and one Allen Green, sworn to by both, states that they
have been informed that since the said Rignal filed his petition for a divorce, he was married in
Wayne county, in this state, and that his petition for a divorce is still pending in Court; and that,
within the last three years, the said Sarah and Rignal have lived together, and that when said Sarah
left her husband; she was driven away by her said husband, who at that time, was living in
adulterous intercourse with one Maria Green, the person whom he has since married; and that
said Rignal has filed other petitions for divorce, in Fairfield county, charging said Sarah with
adultery, which were dismissed as wholly unfounded; and that each of the facts stated in the
remonstrance, and sworn to by them, can be proved by a great number of witnesses.

To establish the charges of absence and adultery, on the part of the wife, there are depositions of
John Williamson and Matilda Williamson, taken on the 25th of December, 1834, under a notice
dated on the 25th of the same date, and also the depositions of John Green jun. and John Green,
taken on the 29th December, 1834, under a notice dated the 25th of the same month.

John Williamson swears that between one and two years ago, he saw the said Sarah in bed with
another man than her husband, that said Sarah has had a child since the separation which she has

10

suckled and called her own; and that he never knew her husband to abuse her while they lived
together.

Matilda Williamson swears that she saw the said Sarah make three attempts to go to bed with a
young man, and he as often kicked her out; and, at another time, at Mr. John Roses's, she went to
bed to the same man and lay with him alone all night, and once afterwards she went to bed with a
married man, and he kicked or pushed her out of the bed, and that she never knew her husband to
misuse her while they lived together, nor since they parted.

Upon these depositions, it may be remarked, that they were taken on the same day that notice was
served, as appears by the affadavit of one Charles Williamson, and it does not appear that said
Sarah was present at the taking of them, nor does it appear what connexion the Williamsons have
with the affair, or the parties to it; and the depositions themselves, although they seem to show a
willingness, on the part of the witnesses, to swear freely, are remarkably deficient in the statement
of time, place and circumstance; entirely too much so in the opinion of the committee, to fix so
serious a charge as is attempted to be fixed on the female, in the case before us.

John Green, jun. Swears that he has known the parties long - the peitioner is his brother and the
defendant his cousin. Witness resided within half a mile of them, in September, 1829; Sarah left
the house, bed and board of her husband, and has remained absent ever since, excepting that
about two years ago the said Sarah came on a visit to the house of Rignal's mother, where said
Rignal resided, where she remained about two months. Witness does not know what intercourse
they had whilst they resided under the same roof, but after a stay of about two months, she left and
went to her father's in Licking county. He knows of no cause for said Sarah to leave her husband, is
of opinion that he used her well, and that he is a sober and industrious man generally, and
disposed to treat those about him with kindness and propriety.

On his cross examination he states, that at the time of the visit of said Sarah to her aunt's the
residence of said Rignal, about two years ago, there was a report in the neighbourhood that said
Rignal was living in adulterous intercourse with other women, especially Maria Green; but of this
the witness knows nothing of his own knowledge. There was also a report in the neighbourhood
that said Sarah had had illicit intercourse with one Williamson.

John Green swears that the former part of the statement of John Green jun., is according to his
knowledge also; and in addition, he states that upon the occasion when Sarah went to stay at her
aunt's, where Rignal resided, she first came to the house of this witness, and remained two weeks,
and said that if Rignal would not come to see her she would go to him. Rignal did not come to see
her while she stayed at the house of witness; that soon after Sarah left the petitioner, she was
reported to have had illicit intercourse with one Williamson, and that in June last, in Licking county,
where said Sarah lived; it was reported that she was in the practice of doing so with others, and
that after the separation it was reported, at different periods, that the petitioner was in the habit of
going after other women.

The depositions taken by the defendant Sarah, were taken on the sixth day of January, 1835,
pursuant to a notice, the service of which is acknowledged by the petitioner on the third.

Ruhama Green swears that she is the mother of the petitioner, that something less than two years
ago, the said Sarah came to her house, and staid five or six weeks; that during that time she and
her husband did not bed together; but she believes that about that time their second child was
begotten; that she never saw said Sarah misbehave herself toward her husband; but, on the
contrary, she conducted herself in a becoming manner, so far as she was acquainted with her and
she thinks she was in a situation to have seen any misconduct while she lived at her house, if there
had been any; that she has heard that the petitioner was married about a month ago, to Maria
Green.

John Green swears that he was in Wayne county about a month ago, and was informed that the
petitioner was married to Maria Green, that he saw a paper which he was told was the license and
was informed by the petitioner that he intended to marry Maria, and he afterwards told him that he
had done so, and afterwards said he had not.

It appears from what has been stated that the notice required by law was not given before this
petition was presented. 2nd, That the original cause of separation is not shown. 3rd, That it is
doubtful which of the parties has behaved the worse since the separation. 4th, if the wife is guilty as
charges by the husband, there is ample provision by law for redress in the Supreme Court. The
committee therefore, ask to be discharged from further consideration of the subject.

"THE NOW PEACEFUL FAMILY OF GREENS WAS AT ONE TIME THE HARD FIGHTERS OF
PIONEER DAYS"
By Harry P. Green, Johnstown, Ohio.
The following account which I am about to relate, is one handed down by my father - the late Benjamin
Green - who died in the year 1913 at the age of eighty-one years. If living now, he would be one
hundred years old. It is regarding the early settlement of Licking County, Ohio and of its hardy pioneer
stock who settled near Johnstown in Monroe Township, during the earlier part of the eighteenth
century. Father stated that several of the original Greens who had moved from near Lancaster in
Fairfield County, had built and erected homes here. But there were one or two of the brothers who had
not come up, still living farther south or beyond Lancaster a few miles. About this time (around 1812-
20), one of the brothers named Charles came up to visit the ones who had settled here. Now, Charles
was a man who was only ordinary in stature, weighed about one hundred fifty pounds and of a peaceful
disposition when sober. But if drinking, he was the opposite in temperament and would fight the Devil if
challenged for a "scrap." After spending some time up here visiting with his brothers, he concluded to
return to Lancaster. It seems he was a man who, liked to hunt coon, as he was accompanied on this
trip by a coon dog which was very much attached to him. Everything went well with Charles and the dog
until they reached Lancaster where they dropped into a tavern - which all the early towns afforded - for
rest and refreshments before going on a few miles further to his home. There was a drunken Dutchman
at the tavern, whom Charles had never seen and who like all drunken men, was usually getting into
trouble. It proved so, in the story I've started to tell. Whiskey was plentiful in those days and all taverns
sold it over the bar-without hindrance or license. As soon as Charles entered the tavern, he walked
over to the bar and ordered a glass of whiskey. The drunken Dutchman sauntered up to the bar and
said to Charles, "Can't you treat a friend." Charles replied, "You are no friend of mine; and if you were, I
would not treat you, as you are already drunk." This made the drunken Dutchman mad; and as he
started to leave the bar, he gave Charles' hound a vicious kick. This started a quarrel between them.
Charles told him if he kicked his dog again, he (Charles) would give him a sound thrashinq. The
Dutchman told him in his drunken way, he could not do so. Charles, who when mad would use profane
language, on this occasion, said he could lick any damn Dutchman ever in Lancaster. Charles had no
sooner said it than the Dutchman turned on his heel, left the room, and went to a butcher shop which

12

was owned and run by another Dutchman named "Rosabaw" who at that time was the "Bully" of
Lancaster and had never been whipped. He was a large, powerful man, weighing over two-hundred
pounds. Charles did not know him, as he had not become acquainted with the people of Lancaster at
that time. But he soon met him with no introduction from the drunken one who had gone and was
bringing him to the tavern for a fight.

Charles in the meantime, had ordered another glass of liquor and started down the street towards his
home. He had not gone very far from the tavern, when he met the drunken Dutchman, accompanied by
the bully, Rosabaw, who had his sleeves rolled up and his coat thrown over his arm, going toward the
tavern. No sooner had they met each other than Rosabaw said to him, "Are you the man who swore
you could lick any Dutchman in Lancaster?" Charles, taken by surprise at so short a notice, hesitated
for a moment to tell why he said it; and said, "Yes." But this was as far as he got in his explanation why
he had said it; for before he could say, "I beg pardon," Rosabaw dropped the coat from his arm and
struck Charles a powerful blow between the eyes, which broke Charles' nose and blinded him for
several minutes. Rosabaw did not stop at this lick, but began striking in earnest. Charles who was yet
blinded from the blow, began backing away from him, bleeding like a stuck hog; and kept backing away
for some distance. Rosabaw followed and kept striking at him, but was not successful; as Charles
guarded his face as best he could. He had backed away several rods from where the fight commenced
when he backed into some hewn timber which had been prepared for a new building. This, he fell over;
and Rosabaw over with him. No sooner had they clinched each other in the fall than bulldog fighting
commenced in earnest. Describing it as told by the author, it is said Charles grabbed Rosabaw around
his neck with his arms, held him tightly, and began spitting blood from his broken nose into Rosabaw's
face and eyes. This was done in the course of the fight while flat on his back, neither of them getting
hurt but little in the procedure.

It is said that on this very day, one of Charles' brothers and his wife, were on their way to Johnstown or
vicinity with a wagon load of household goods and had stopped for an errand in Lancaster. This
brother's name was Hezekiah who was called "Kye" for short. It is said he had a coarse heavy voice
like unto the roar of a lion. His wife, while waiting for him to return to the wagon, heard of a big fight
going on nearby and inquired who was involved. Someone told her it was a man by the name of Green,
fighting Rosabaw. She ran and got her husband, and the two ran down to the fight; by which time most
all the men of Lancaster had gathered at the spot. "Kye" gave out a yell for the men to stand back and
he rushed into where the men were fighting. He began to curse his brother and told him to "get out of
there." Just as soon as Charles found Kye was there, he took courage and kicked himself loose; got
onto his feet; and hit Rosabaw one lick with his bare fist, which knocked him cold. The crowd carried
Rosabaw away and worked a long time with him before he came to himself. It is said that ever
afterward Rosabaw was stone deaf from the lick; both ear drums being punctured; and that ever after-
ward, he would never fight.

So ends the story which I have heard my father tell on many and many occasions of his early
recollections of the early pioneer family of Greens who originally came from Virginia to Lancaster,, and
then on to Johnstown, Ohio. Here, many of them - descendants of Rignal Green, Sr. - are still living.

History of the Greens in Licking Co. Ohio
Green, Charles, George, Mahala
Few if any traces of Mound Builders exist within it's limits (Monroe Township), but the Wyandott Indians
once lived here in considerable numbers. They built a town called "Raccoon Town" a mile or more
above Johnstown on Raccoon Creek where they resided until 1807 when Charles and George Green
purchased their possessions and thereafter occupied and cultivated the lands. The Greens who bought
out the Wyandotts were Virginians and accustomed to frontier life. Mahala Green, daughter of George
and Diana Green born in the autumn of 1807 was the first white child born in the County. She
subsequently married Bazil Butt. Mrs. George Green, yet living in this township at the age of 92 is the
mother of 17 children and rejoices in one hundred grandchildren, seventy great grand children. The

Methodist Episcopal Church of Johnstown. This is among the oldest in the township, having been

organized in 1820______ The organization took place at the residence of George Green, who with his
wife and Rignal and Charles Green and their wives constituted the first members of the organization.

Green, Noah, farmer, post office, Johnstown was born May 11, 1811 in Monroe Township. He is the
third child and first son of George and Diadema Green, who were the first settlers of the township. Mrs.
Green, who is still living, gave birth to the first white child born in the township. The subject of the
sketch is the oldest living male child now living in the township of Monroe, May 31, 1830, Mr. Green
was married to Miss Olive Crawford, by whom he has had two children, Lavina (born, married, and
living in Coles County, Illinois. She was born April 12, 1831 and Margaret, born June 29, 1833 and died
January 23, 1879. Mr. Green has seen the country grow from it's infancy, and is yet a well preserved
and vigorous man, able to take a hand in the harvest field which he did during the harvest of 1880. The
mother of the subject of this sketch was Diademma Green, whose family were the third who moved into
Monroe Township. Washington Evans was first, Charles Green second and the third was George
Green, husband of Diadema Green whose maiden name was Willison, was born on the eleventh day of
January, 1788. She was married when about the age of sixteen years. Her husband came to Monroe
Township about 1807and purchased eighty acres of land, paying at the rate of one dollar and twenty-
five cents per acre, located in Raccoon town, and on which the Indians had cleared from three to five
acres. Great quantities of relics have been found in this vicinity. Grandmother Green states that she
remained alone three weeks in the midst of about three hundred Indians whilst her husband was cutting
and threshing his crop of wheat near Lancaster, Fairfield County. She says there were three Indians, of
whom were called Indian Joe and Indian George, the other she does not recollect his name, came to
kill her husband and his brother Charles; her husband taking down his rifle on their approach, went out
to meet them but instead of their showing any hostile disposition they were inclined to be remarkably
friendly, using the following language: "Indian no kill white man, Indian white man's friend." She speaks
highly of this tribe of Indians, the Wyandotts, and delights in telling incidents that occurred in an early
day. She is the mother of seventeen children, fourteen of whom lived to become mothers and fathers.
She is making her home with her youngest daughter. She still owns about thirty acres of land, so she is
not dependent upon any one for a subsistence. History of Licking County Monroe Township, Page 678

Green, Corwin, C., farmer and stock dealer, Johnstown, was born June 18, 1841, in Monroe Township,
where he has always resided. He is the son of Rezin and Parmelia Green and grandson of Diadema
Green, who was the third family who settled in Monroe Township. He married Ann M. Beaver,
September 27, 1866. She was born September 11, 1847, in Monroe Township, Seneca County, Ohio.
They have three children, Grant C., born June 23, 1868; Clyde B., born May 13, 1871; Earl R., born
august 3, 1876. All bright promising boys. They own one hundred thirty-three acres of land under a high
state of cultivation. They possess genial natures and are respected by their relatives and
acquaintances. History of Licking County, Monroe Township Page 679.

Notes for PETER WILLIAMSON, SR.:
Biography of Peter Williamson

Several articles have been written about Peter Williamson, his ancestors and his descendants in the
past. However, based on records that have been found regarding his service in St. Clair’s War and in
Fairfield Co. and Licking Co.,
OH some of the statements in earlier articles seem to be questionable. In the 1850 Monroe Township,
Licking Co., OH census Peter was listed as 86 years old and born in VA. This gives him a birth date of
about 1764. However, it is not known where he was born in VA if that is, indeed, his birth state.Both
Peter Williamson, Sr. and Jr. paid taxes in Berkeley, Co., VA in 1782. Only one Peter Williamson was
in the 1787 tax list. There was a Peter Williamson family from New Jersey in Berkeley Co. at that time.
Our Peter Williamson was too young to have been in the 1782 tax list so it is difficult to know just who
the Peter Williamson might have been in the 1787 tax list. One of our Peter ‘s applications for bounty
land was made 19 Apr 1851 before Justice of the Peace James Johnson in Licking Co., OH. Peter was
listed as 86 years old giving him a birth date of 1764 or 1765. He tesitfied that he was an Orderly
Sergeant in the company commanded by Captain William Lewis in the regiment of United States
Troops commanded by Colonel Dark in the war of the United States against the Indians in the year
1791 under General St. Clair. He said he enlisted in Hagerstown, MD on or about the 16th of May 1791
for a term of six months and remained in active service until on or about the 4th day of Nov 1791 and

21

was present at the engagement with the Indians. He was wounded in the right leg so severely that he
was confined at the hospital at Fort Washington for thirty days and at the end of the time, still being
unable to travel, he remained that winter in Kentucky until, in March 1792 (when he was able to travel),
he started for his home where he arrived in April 1792. Unfortunately he didn’t say where “home” was.
Fort Washington was present Cincinnati., OH.

Peter received 80 acres of land in IN as a result of this application. Warrant 33.418. This land is in
Newton Co., IN and was assigned to Joseph Evans in May 1853. (Joseph was a son of Jonah Evans
who had once lived in Monroe Twp., Licking Co., OH but had moved his family to Noble Co., IN by the
time this land was sold.

Peter appeared before the mayor of Johnstown, Monroe Twp., Licking Co., OH 11 Jan 1858 to apply
for more bounty land. His age is listed as 94 years, again this gives him a birth date in 1764. He gave
the same information that he gave in the earlier application regarding those who were his officers in St
Clair’s War. He gave the same day of enlistment but it appears that he said he enlisted in Harisburg,
Maryland rather than Hagerstown. He said he was discharged at Fort Washington in Nov or Dec 1791.
He had an honorable discharge which had been lost. He was making this declaration for the purpose of
obtaining the Bounty land to which he might be entitled under the Act, granting Bounty land to certain
officers and soldiers who were engaged in the Military Service of the United States passed Sept 28,
1850. He declared that he received a warrant for 80 acres of land which he disposed of and could not
now control and had not received any other or made application.>p> Apparently no bounty land was
issued as a result of this application. Perhaps he was not entitled to more or perhaps Peter died before
it could be acted on. See page 441 of The GREEN Tree” by Robert M. Green.

Jonathan Williamson, a grandson of Peter, indicated that Peter and John Williamson had served in the
War of 1776. Nothing has been found to date to prove this statement. Jonathan stated that Peter’s
father John was born about 1735 but he does not say where John was born. He indicated that John
was a brother of Hugh Williamson who was in command at the massacre at Gnadenhutten in 1782.
However, it was David Williamson who was in command there and his father’s
name was John Willamson, son of Samuel Williamson. This family was in PA. No relationship has been
found between this family and that of our Peter Williamson or his father.

Jonathan Williamson said that Peter’s father John married Peggy Aunen, dau. of Gen. Joseph Aunen
of Ireland. He mentioned that they had 3 sons, Charles, John and our Peter. Nothing has been found to
prove this. However, Peter named on of his sons Joseph Annin Williamson which would SEEM to point
to some relationship to a Joseph Annin/Aunen.

On 29 Jul 1801 Peter Williamson married Rebecca Green, dau. of Regnal Green, in Fairfield Co., OH.
A Peter Williamson was a Justice of the Peace in Fairfield Co. in 1810 and 1811 for he performed
some marriages during that time. A Peter
Williamson, b. 1768 from Berkeley Co., VA was living in Fairfield Co. from about 1806 to Jan 1812
(when he died) so it is assumed he was called Peter Jr. and our Peter Williamson b 1764 , was called
Peter Sr. When Peter Jr. died in 1812 Peter
Williamson, Sr. witnessed his Will along with Ann Cross in Fairfield Co., OH. It is ASSUMED that the
Peter Sr. was our Peter Williamson. Jonathan Williamson’s article said that Peter brought his family
from VA to Johnstown, Licking Co., OH in 1812. However, it appears that Peter was in Fairfield Co.,
OH in 1812 not in VA. In an article about Joseph A. Williamson that appeared in the Newark Advocate
newspaper (Newark, Licking Co., OH) in 1883, it said that Peter move his family to Monroe Twp.,
Licking Co., OH 1818 when Joseph was 14 years old. This may be true for Peter Williamson paid taxes
on several parcels of land in Fairfield Co., until 1819. We may never know the actual date they arriived
in Licking Co.but we do know they were living there by the 1820 census. A John Williamson family was
living next to them at that time and it is possible that this was John and Deborah Green Williamson and
their family. It is not known who this John Williamson was. If he was Peter’s son, Peter apparently had
an earlier wife we are unaware of or It may be that John
Williamson was a son of Peter’s supposed brother Charles. John moved on to Franklin Co. by the next
census.

In 1820 Peter and Rebecca’s family consisted of 2 males under 10 (namely James 1804), and one who
was listed as 16-18 and also in the 16-26 category. The latter one would have been George b Dec
1802. There were also three females in the family other than Rebecca Green Williamson. They were all

22

in the 10-16 category. We know daughter Sidney was born in1808 so she would have been one of
those females. However we do not know who the others might have been. Jonathan Williamson said
there was a daughter Sallie who was the wife of William Green and the mother of William Warren
Green b 1818. If this is correct she would have been gone from the home by 1820 census. Peter and
Rebecca are said to have had a daughter Rebecca also but if she is the female named Rebecca age
28 living with Peter in the 1850 census she was born about 1822 (after the 1820 census).

A history of the Williamson family written by Judd Williamson., another descendant of Peter’s, says
Peter and Rebecca had 4 daughters but he doesn’t name a Sallie. He says they were Siddie (Sidney),
Cynthia, Becky, and Mary. Judd made many errors in other families in his history so one cannot
assume that these names are correct but they are possibilities. However, nothing is known about a
Cynthia or a Mary Williamson. Because the Licking County Courthouse was destroyed by fire in April
1875 many marriage records that would prove useful in researching the Williamson family were burned.
From deeds we learn that Peter Williamson of Monroe Twp., Licking Co. bought land in that township
30 Aug 1827 from the heirs of Oliver Bigelow for $155. His purchase contained 89 acres more or less
and was on the border of Monroe and Jersey Townships south of Johnstown. It is described as being in
Range fifteen, Township three, Section four in Licking Co., in United States Military Lands. It being lot
number seven in the second range of lots in said section. Witness to
the sale were Jacob Green and Morgan (Vol. R pg. 3) In February 1838 Peter sold part of that land (20
and a half acres) to his son James for $100. Both Peter and Rebecca signed the deed and it was
witnessed by Rebecca Williamson (Presumably their daughter. This would indicate that she was old
enough to be a witness and hence would have been born before 1822.) and B. S. Cross. (Vol. GG pg.
146). In Nov 1843 Peter and Rebecca sold more of their land (14 acres) to their son James for $50.
Rebecca signed her name Becca Willliamson in this deed. It was witnessed by B.S. Cross and Rees
McClelland. (Vol. PP pg. 105-196) In Feb 1849 only Peter signed the deed when he sold six acres to
son James Williamson for $150. (Vol. 54 pg. 534) This indicates that Rebecca must have died between
Nov 1843 and Feb 1849.
On Jun 6 1850 Peter sold 10 acres to Annon Williamson for $20 (Vol. 57 pg. 440) and on 25 Jun he
sold sixteen and a half acres to James Williamson for $245 which the deed indicates was the residue of
Peter’s 89 acres except for 10 acres which had been sold to Anon Williamson, 6 acres to B.S. Cross,
and fifty six and a half acres to James Williamson (Vol. 57 pg. 211) There was no deed for the six
acres to B.S. Cross prior to that time but in March 1856 Peter sold 6 acres to Lucinda Cross, B. S.
Cross’ widow, for $75. (Vol. 71 pg. 538 Peter and Rebecca are said to be buried on their property along
with 21 other members of their family in unmarked graves. Of interest is the deed for Rebecca
Williamson from James Q. Hughes in Mar 1851. This is presumably Peter Williamson’s daughter. She
paid $ 175 for twenty five acres of land in Jersey Twp. This land would have been south of the land
owned by James Williamson at that time. James Williamson was a witness to that deed along with
James Johnston. A Rebecca Williamson b 1833, d. 1853 is buried in Jersey Twp., Licking Co. If this is
Peter’s daughter Rebecca the birth date has either not been copied correctly or is in error on the
tombstone.

Known children of Peter and Rebecca Green Williamson were:
George b. Dec 1802 d. Feb 1880 m. Sena Cross and Mary Evans
Joseph b. Aug 1804 d 1899 m. Hopie Randolph and Rachel Hartsock

SEAL Sarah Green SEAL. Hezekiah Green SEAL. Ester Green SEAL.

From his gravemarker we can place Regnal's birth year as 1787, however, a Regnal Green Jr. is in the
Berkeley Co. Virginia tax records in 1789 and 1791. This would place his birth around 1768. Is it
possible that the Regnal Green in Licking County is a son of one of Regnal's boys. Or could the 1768

24

Regnal be a son of William Green Jr. Perhaps he died just prior to his father. This requires more
research.

19. JACOB3 GREEN (REGNAL2, WILLIAM1) was born 08 Feb 1793 in Maryland, and died 13 Feb 1879 in
Cumberland Co., Illinois. He married MARY SHEPLAR 16 Dec 1819 in Fairfield Co., Ohio. She was born
12 Jan 1796, and died 12 Nov 1859 in Cumberland Co., Illinois.

Notes for JACOB GREEN:
7 Dec 1818, George Green, while paying his own property taxes for Licking Co., Ohio also paid three
dollars tax on a stud horse for Jacob Green.

24 Sep 1817, Jacob Green witnessed an Indenture when Elisha WIllison sold land to George Green.

Some researchers don't believe that Jacob is a son of Regnal Green because he was born in Maryland.
It is quite likely that some of Regnal's children were born in Maryland - the Green property was only
across the Potomac from W ashington Co. MD and there was a ferry operating within 2 miles of the
Green plantation. Many members of the Butt family remained in Maryland and Sarah Butt Green may
have been staying with other relatives when giving birth to Jacob. I don't think we can dismiss him yet.
Given Jacob's birthdate, he could also have been Regnal's grandson through sons Thomas or Charles,
however, when Jacob married in 1819 in Fairfield County, Thomas was already in Ashland county and
Charles was in Licking County.

27

Served in War of 1812 under Capt. Hurshour who was under Major Dorson. Served from 16 Feb to 16

Notes for MARGARET BYRNE:
Obituary of Margaret Bryne Green
Reprinted from the Everest Reflector August 13, 1885 Vol. III no.11

Miss Margaret Byrne was born in County Donegal, Ireland January 1, 1825, came to this country
with her people when a young girl and married Mr. Ephriam Green at Pittsburg, Pa. in April 1848.
They came to Kansas twenty-seven years ago where they have lived every since, raising seven
children, now all grown and they have lost two boys. Mrs. Green was taken sick some time ago with
what was pronounced as typho molarial and was treated by several physicans, but without success
and on Saturday 8, August at about nine o'clock surrounded by her family and friends her spirit
took it's flight, her age being just sixty years, seven months and seven days. The funeral and burial
took place at All Saints Church Sunday afternoon. Father Ferdinand Wolf officiating. Over fifty
carriages formed in the procession from the residence to the church and not half could find
entrance at the church. Mrs. Green was a devout member of the Catholic faith, a loving mother and
good friend and neighbor and a great sorrow is felt among a large circle of acquaintences, but she
has gone to meet a reward of a good and faithful servent.

DIVORCE OF RIGNAL GREEN OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY OHIO
From the General Assembly Microfilm # M250, year 1834 at the Ohio Historical Society:

Mr. Anthony, from the committee on the Judiciary, to which had been referred the petition of Rignal
Green for a divorce from his wife Sarah, together with the remonstrance of the said Sarah, and the
accompanying depositions, have had the subject under consideration and report. That the petitioner
places his application, to this legislature, upon the ground.

1st, of the willful absence of the wife, to whom he alleges he was married July 15, 1829, and who left
him in September following and has remained away ever since, although he always conducted himself
towards her as an affectionate and dutiful husband.

2nd on account of the adultery of the wife, in various instances, and with different persons, and
especially on the 1st of January, 1830, and at other times, with one Abraham Williamson.

3rd, because, at the November term of the Supreme Court, in 1833, a petition for a divorce, which the
petitioner had filed in Fairfield County, was dismissed by the Court, and, as he alleges, for the want of
the evidence of a witness, who was sent to jail by the court, for using improper language to the Court.
Whether the wife brought any property to the husband, or whether they acquired any thing whilst
together does not appear by the petition, nor does it appear from any of the documents submitted to

33

the committee, that any notice of the present application was given to the said Sarah until the 25th
December, 1834, the very day on which the first depositions were taken, and of the taking of which she
was notified in the same written notice.

The remonstrance of the said Sarah Green and one Allen Green, sworn to by both, states that they
have been informed that since the said Rignal filed his petition for a divorce, he was married in Wayne
county, in this state, and that his petition for a divorce is still pending in Court; and that, within the last
three years, the said Sarah and Rignal have lived together, and that when said Sarah left her husband;
she was driven away by her said husband, who at that time, was living in adulterous intercourse with
one Maria Green, the person whom he has since married; and that said Rignal has filed other petitions
for divorce, in Fairfield county, charging said Sarah with adultery, which were dismissed as wholly
unfounded; and that each of the facts stated in the remonstrance, and sworn to by them, can be proved
by a great number of witnesses.

To establish the charges of absence and adultery, on the part of the wife, there are depositions of John
Williamson and Matilda Williamson, taken on the 25th of December, 1834, under a notice dated on the
25th of the same date, and also the depositions of John Green jun. and John Green, taken on the 29th
December, 1834, under a notice dated the 25th of the same month.

John Williamson swears that between one and two years ago, he saw the said Sarah in bed with
another man than her husband, that said Sarah has had a child since the separation which she has
suckled and called her own; and that he never knew her husband to abuse her while they lived
together.

Matilda Williamson swears that she saw the said Sarah make three attempts to go to bed with a young
man, and he as often kicked her out; and, at another time, at Mr. John Roses's, she went to bed to the
same man and lay with him alone all night, and once afterwards she went to bed with a married man,
and he kicked or pushed her out of the bed, and that she never knew her husband to misuse her while
they lived together, nor since they parted.

Upon these depositions, it may be remarked, that they were taken on the same day that notice was
served, as appears by the affadavit of one Charles Williamson, and it does not appear that said Sarah
was present at the taking of them, nor does it appear what connexion the Williamsons have with the
affair, or the parties to it; and the depositions themselves, although they seem to show a willingness, on
the part of the witnesses, to swear freely, are remarkably deficient in the statement of time, place and
circumstance; entirely too much so in the opinion of the committee, to fix so serious a charge as is
attempted to be fixed on the female, in the case before us.

John Green, jun. Swears that he has known the parties long - the peitioner is his brother and the
defendant his cousin. Witness resided within half a mile of them, in September, 1829; Sarah left the
house, bed and board of her husband, and has remained absent ever since, excepting that about two
years ago the said Sarah came on a visit to the house of Rignal's mother, where said Rignal resided,
where she remained about two months. Witness does not know what intercourse they had whilst they
resided under the same roof, but after a stay of about two months, she left and went to her father's in
Licking county. He knows of no cause for said Sarah to leave her husband, is of opinion that he used
her well, and that he is a sober and industrious man generally, and disposed to treat those about him
with kindness and propriety.

On his cross examination he states, that at the time of the visit of said Sarah to her aunt's the residence
of said Rignal, about two years ago, there was a report in the neighbourhood that said Rignal was living
in adulterous intercourse with other women, especially Maria Green; but of this the witness knows
nothing of his own knowledge. There was also a report in the neighbourhood that said Sarah had had
illicit intercourse with one Williamson.

John Green swears that the former part of the statement of John Green jun., is according to his
knowledge also; and in addition, he states that upon the occasion when Sarah went to stay at her
aunt's, where Rignal resided, she first came to the house of this witness, and remained two weeks, and
said that if Rignal would not come to see her she would go to him. Rignal did not come to see her while
she stayed at the house of witness; that soon after Sarah left the petitioner, she was reported to have
had illicit intercourse with one Williamson, and that in June last, in Licking county, where said Sarah

34

lived; it was reported that she was in the practice of doing so with others, and that after the separation it
was reported, at different periods, that the petitioner was in the habit of going after other women.

The depositions taken by the defendant Sarah, were taken on the sixth day of January, 1835, pursuant
to a notice, the service of which is acknowledged by the petitioner on the third.

Ruhama Green swears that she is the mother of the petitioner, that something less than two years ago,
the said Sarah came to her house, and staid five or six weeks; that during that time she and her
husband did not bed together; but she believes that about that time their second child was begotten;
that she never saw said Sarah misbehave herself toward her husband; but, on the contrary, she
conducted herself in a becoming manner, so far as she was acquainted with her and she thinks she
was in a situation to have seen any misconduct while she lived at her house, if there had been any; that
she has heard that the petitioner was married about a month ago, to Maria Green.

John Green swears that he was in Wayne county about a month ago, and was informed that the
petitioner was married to Maria Green, that he saw a paper which he was told was the license and was
informed by the petitioner that he intended to marry Maria, and he afterwards told him that he had done
so, and afterwards said he had not.

It appears from what has been stated that the notice required by law was not given before this petition
was presented. 2nd, That the original cause of separation is not shown. 3rd, That it is doubtful which of
the parties has behaved the worse since the separation. 4th, if the wife is guilty as charges by the
husband, there is ample provision by law for redress in the Supreme Court. The committee therefore,
ask to be discharged from further consideration of the subject.

was reported, at different periods, that the petitioner was in the habit of going after other women.

The depositions taken by the defendant Sarah, were taken on the sixth day of January, 1835, pursuant
to a notice, the service of which is acknowledged by the petitioner on the third.

Ruhama Green swears that she is the mother of the petitioner, that something less than two years ago,
the said Sarah came to her house, and staid five or six weeks; that during that time she and her
husband did not bed together; but she believes that about that time their second child was begotten;
that she never saw said Sarah misbehave herself toward her husband; but, on the contrary, she
conducted herself in a becoming manner, so far as she was acquainted with her and she thinks she
was in a situation to have seen any misconduct while she lived at her house, if there had been any; that
she has heard that the petitioner was married about a month ago, to Maria Green.

John Green swears that he was in Wayne county about a month ago, and was informed that the
petitioner was married to Maria Green, that he saw a paper which he was told was the license and was
informed by the petitioner that he intended to marry Maria, and he afterwards told him that he had done
so, and afterwards said he had not.

It appears from what has been stated that the notice required by law was not given before this petition
was presented. 2nd, That the original cause of separation is not shown. 3rd, That it is doubtful which of
the parties has behaved the worse since the separation. 4th, if the wife is guilty as charges by the
husband, there is ample provision by law for redress in the Supreme Court. The committee therefore,
ask to be discharged from further consideration of the subject.

Notes for WILLIAM GREEN:
Julia Green Fowler Bio:
William Green was born in Ohio, May 25, 1827 and died August 18, 1873, aged 46 yrs. He was married
to Esther Pounds of Ostrander, Ohio. They lived for a number of years on a farm not far from
Ostrander. Eight of their children were born there. They attended the Baptist Church in Ostrander of
which they were members. In 1863 they left the old house in Union County, Ohio and moved to Illinois.
As the family was composed of several boys, our father felt the necessity of a larger farm, more land
for these big boys to spend their energy on. And in February 1863 the family moved to their new home
on a good farm of 240 acres located in Southwest Township, Crawford County, Illinois.

The house on the new farm in Crawford County, Illinois was a fairly good sized log house of one room,
a fireplace and an attic large enough for beds until we could build. We built a new large one room log
house as soon as possible with chimney and a large porch on the east side of the house. All of our
neighbors had fireplaces. Fire was kept all the time in these fireplaces, and when our fire went out we
would go to a neighbor's and borrow fire and the neighbors would come to our house for fire if their fire
should go out. A family in our neighborhood had a heating stove for a number of years after we moved
to Illinois. All the neighbors helped each other on threshing and butchering days, and quilting and wool
pickings with an occasional apple cutting made up the social activities of the community.

My father owned the first self binder harvesting machine in the neighborhood. The day they tried it out
all the neighbors came to the field to see it work.

There was a very good orchard on our new farm and in the spring of the year when the trees were in
bloom it was a bower of beauty. A friend coming home with my father one day for dinner made this
remark, "Mr. Green, you have a beautiful home here."

39

The house stood on a sand hill, not a large hill, but just enough elevation so that it was always dry. The
orchard that surrounded the house had quite a variety of apple and peach trees. Well do I remember
the old sweet apple tree which stood just north of the house and the russett tree and the sheepnose
trees which were a little north and east of the house. These were favorites of all the children. Then a
great many other ones, the names of which I do not now recall. There was one tree that stood a short
distance from the house. It was about 15 ft. up to any limb but we all, boys and girls alike, spent
considerable of our time up in that tree, especially when the berries were ripe. We had lots of apples to
put away for winter, but somehow they all evaporated by the.time spring had come.

We had one persimmon tree, It stood a little way out of the orchard, which was a very familiar place
and visited daily by all of the children in the fall of the year when the fruit was ripe.

My father built a large, double log barn with sheds in between large enough to put away lots of hay and
corn and machinery and horses

All these old landmarks that we loved so much and which meant so much to us in our childhood days
bring us both happy and sad memories long gone by, but not forgotten.

There were no hard roads in this part of the State at that time, so it was a long, hard pull through the
mud to the nearest trading and shipping point, which was a distance of ten miles from the new home.
They all went to work with a will. The farm proved to be very productive and yielded large crops of corn
and wheat. One year my father sold 1300 bushels of wheat to one buyer in Simner and received a nice
overcoat as a gift for having sold the most wheat of any man that year, besides what he reserved for
seed and family use. Mr. Green was a hard worker and a good manager and as a result of course he
prospered financially.

My father was a man who was a little reserved but he always met his friends with a smile and a kindly
greeting. He was a very generous hearted man. If there was a poor family in the neighborhood they
new where to go for help. And although he had a large family of his own to support, still he always had
something to give to help the poor, and many a bushel of corn and wheat has gone from his cribs to
feed the poor and needy. He would say, go to the crib and fill up your sack, and he would go on about
his work. Did he lose anything in this? I think not. This was one way he had of laying up treasures in
Heaven. The good book says, Give and it shall be given unto you, and he that giveth to the poor
tendeth to the Lord.

My father and mother were strictly religious people. They attached themselves to the Baptist Church
which had a small organization in the neighborhood of their new home and identified themselves with
the best society in the community. Thus helping to make an influence for better for their own children as
well as others.

My father was a deeply spiritual Christian. He believed in the old time religion and practiced it. He loved
the old songs and many a time I have heard him in the dusk of the evening sitting in his split-bottom
chair on the large front porch communing with his God singing the old songs he loved so well. Such a
charge to keep I have and How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord is laid for your faith in his
excellent word. A man with the spirit of these songs in his heart communing with his God can never die.
He is not dead, he is only gone on before.

But these good times soon came to an end for father only lived a few months past ten years until he
took his departure from this new home and his family and went to inhabit that house not made with
hands eternal in the Heavens.

My mother, Esther Pounds Green, was born in Ohio April 12, 1830, and died March 22, 1878, aged 47
years. She was a lovely Christian, a very spiritual woman. I have seen her give praises to God in the
public congregation when the spirit of God filled her heart to overflowing. She took great pains in
teaching her children the Bible and trying to bring them up to love God and keep his Commandments.
A short time before her death she went back home to Ohio to visit her old Mother and brothers and
sisters. She died with a living faith in her Redeemer and went home to meet her God at the age of 47
years.

Samuel, the first born in this home, died in infancy. He is buried in Ostrander, Ohio.

Elizabeth Jane, the oldest daughter of William and Esther Pounds Green, was born April 18, 1851 in
Union County near Ostrander, Ohio and died in Lawrence county, Illinois on July 5, 1933, aged 82
years. The first twelve years of her life were spent in Ohio at the place of her birth. In March 1863 her
parents and family moved to Illinois and settled on a farm in Crawford County.

In the year 1867 she was united in marriage to Thomas Allen and to them were born six children. She
with her husband, became charter members of the Christian Church at the Bethany Class in the
community in which they lived.

Richard Elias Green was born in Union County, Ohio October 6, 1852 and died in Crawford County,
Illinois October 28, 1880 aged 28 years. This was a great blow to this family as this brother had been a
father to the rest of the children since the death of our father.

He was not married. Father and mother both gone, the younger children learned to lean on this brother
for help and advice, and it seemed a great calamity when he was taken. He was a very fine young man,
honest and industrious and dependable. He had accumulated considerable property when he died. He
has been gone now a long time but he has not been forgotten by any of his brothers and sisters for we
all loved him. He was not a member of any Church, but he surely was a Christian at heart. He believed
in God and was always ready to do his part in everything that was for the betterment of those around
him. His body rests in the home cemetery in Crawford County, Illinois.

Calvin Green, son of William and Esther Green, was born in Union County, Ohio September 22, 1853.
He died in Crawford County, Illinois, August 31, 1873, aged 19 years.

John R. Green, son of William and Esther Green, was born September 6, 1854 in Union County, Ohio
and died in Crawford County, Illinois, August 23, 1873, aged 18 years.

Thus, two more bright young men were taken from-this home within a few days of each other. Both just
entering manhood. John R. was preparing for college. Dear brothers of long ago you are not forgotten.

Fletcher M. Green, son of William and Esther Green, was born in Union County, Ohio November 25,
1855. He married-for his wife Florence Wagoner of Lawrence, Illinois. To this union was born seven
children. Fletcher is now in very poor health and will not be here very long.

Margaret Green, daughter of William and Esther Green, was born in Union County, Ohio on October 3,
1857. She was married to Henry Albert and after a time removed to Missouri for her health, but she
gradually grew worse and in a few years she died and was buried in that State. A good Christian
woman devoted to her husband and her church. She left no children.

Julia E. Green, daughter of William and Esther Green, was born in Union County, Ohio on December
13, 1859. She was married May 3, 1887 to Rev. J. C. Fowlera minister in the United Brethren Church in
the Illinois Conference. She came with her family when but a child from Union County, Ohio to
Crawford County, Illinois in which she has spent the rest of her life thus far. In her younger days she
was a teacher in the public schools of Crawford County, Illinois.

Judson Green, son of William and Esther Green, was born in Union County, Ohio on November 8,
1861 and died in Crawford County, Illinois September 23, 1880, aged 18 years. A good boy member of
the M.E. Church. Dear Brother, you are not forgotten.

Ida Alice Green was born in Crawford County, Illinois on November 3, 1863. The daughter of William
and Esther Green, she spent her early life at home with her parents. Was a teacher in the public
schools of Crawford County. Married Jacob Paddick. She was not blessed with any children of her own
but reared three step sons who are as near to her as her own would be. Good Christian, useful worker
in the Methodist Church to which she belongs.

Albert Green, infant son of William and Esther Green, was born in Crawford County, Illinois, May 29,
1866 and died at the age of six months.

William P. Green, son of William and Esther Green, was born in Crawford County, Illinois June 23,

41

1867. He was married to Kathryn Tade. To this union was born four children. The first born in this home
was Dr. Carl Green, Ph.D., editor of this history and family historian of the Illinois branch of the family.
Carl's mother died when he was eight years old. William married for his second wife, Sarah Baker of
Lancaster, Indiana. To this union were born three children. William P. Green is a man of honor and
reliability and pillar in the Christian Church to which he and his family belong.

Anna R. Green daughter of William and Esther Green, was born in Crawford County May 31, 1890. She
married John Lewis,to them were born three children. She spent her early life in and around the old
home until after her marriage. They went to California where they have always lived and reared their
children. Anna was a sweet young girl and now she is a loving mother and worker in the Church.

Bunyan Green the baby of this very large family and son of William and Esther Green, was born in
Crawford County, Illinois, October 1, 1872. He-married Nora Phillips and to them was born five children.
Their first born is William H. Green, the president of the Illinois Green reunion. Bunyan Green is a
member of the Methodist Church and he and his good wife have raised an honorable family.

Biography of William P. Green
The Greens settled in South West Township on April 9, 1863 after selling their farm on the Union-
Delaware County Line near Ostrander, Ohio on March 16, 1863.
Original ancestors of the family lived in Berkeley County, Virginia more than two hundred years
ago. The original ancestor, from whom the subject of our sketch is a direct descendent, was named
William Green, and lived on a three-hundred acre farm on the Potomac River. This farm was
obtained by deed from Thomas Lord Fairfax on January 13, 1751. (Berkeley County is now in West
Virginia.) William Green executed a will on November 12, 1776 naming his son Rignal Green,
executor. This will was ordered admitted to probate in Berkeley County on March 21, 1780.

Between the years 1798 and 1804, Rignal and most of his nine sons (John, Allen, Hezekiah, Rolla,
Charles, George, Thomas, William, and Rignal Jr.) migrated to Ohio where they settled in Fairfield
and Licking Counties. In Fairfield, they settled west of Lancaster; and in Licking, near the village of
Johnstown. In both counties, they settled on "government land" which had not been entirely
vacated by the indians. Near Johnstown, George Green entered a quarter-section which was still
occupied by the Raccoon Indian village; and he paid the indians to move off.

The eighth son (William) above mentioned, married Martha Bilderback and entered a quarter-
section south-west of Lancaster some ten miles on the 18th of December, 1806. He sold this on
January 2, 1816 and moved to the vicinity of Mohicanville, Ashland County in northern Ohio where
he owned and operated a water mill for more than twenty years. Then, in the early 1840's he
purchased a section of land on the Union-Delaware County Line about four miles north-west of
Ostrander, Ohio. His son (William Jr., born May 25, 1827 died August 18, 1873) our subject's
father, inherited and lived on a portion (150 acres) of this farm and took care of his parents in their
old age until their death. They are buried on their farm.

William Jr. and his wife (Esther Pounds Green) sold their farm as stated above on March 16, 1863,
chartered a car and came to Sumner, Illinois. They purchased eighty acres in the south-west
quarter of section 17 (a part of the Noah Keplinger estate) in South West township; and 160 acres
on the west side of the road, being the south-east quarter of section 18. They were the parents of
fourteen children (Samuel, Elizabeth Jane, Richard Elias, Calvin, John Rolla, Fletcher Monroe,
Margaret A, Julia Eliza, Judson A, Ida Alice, Albert C, William Pendleton, Annie Ruhama, Bunyan
Greely) most of whom were born in Ohio.

Our subject (William P. Green) was born in South West Township on June 23,1867. He was six
years old when his father died and eleven when his mother passed away. Hence, his rearing was
largely in the hands of older members of the family. He inherited forty acres, in section 18, of his
father's estate. On June 20, 1888, he was united in marriage with Catherine (Katy) Tade of nearby
Richland County. They were the parents of six children, two of whom (Carl and Julia) still survive.
Katy passed away on December 16, 1898.

William P. Green married Sarah McCreery Baker on December 22, 1899. To this union were born
three children (Bonnie, Ausby, and Belvia). Sarah McCreery Baker was a native of Owen County,
Indiana.

Mr. Green was a farmer all his life, and owned a farm of one-hundred acres free of all
incumbrances, at the time of his death. Most of his farm was located in sections 17 and 18, the
Embarrass river flowing through it in two places. He served his township as assessor, one term;
and then, was elected to represent his township on the county Board of Supervisors. He served on
the Board of Supervisors (1896-1902) three consecutive terms; and during one term, was
Chairman of the Board. He and Catherine Tate Green were charter members of the Landes
Christian Church congregation, organized in the spring of 1894; he was an elder and trustee of the
church during the remainder of his life; and his funeral was preached in the church by Rev. R.C.

30. BENJAMIN4 GREEN (REGNAL3, REGNAL2, WILLIAM1) was born 26 Jul 1832 in Licking Co., Ohio, and
died 18 Jun 1913 in Licking Co., Ohio. He married ELIZABETH CLOUSE 24 Apr 1856 in Licking Co.,
Ohio.

Notes for BENJAMIN GREEN:
From The Memorial Record of Licking County Ohio:
Benjamin Green. The agricultural community is the foundation for true prosperity in the state, and in the
homes of the farmers we may read the future of the country. The family represented by Mr. Green
constitutes one of those industrious and enterprising households whose intelligence and integrity,
common sense and practical knowledge influence all about them and conduce to the prosperity of the
section in which they live. Their excellent farm, upon which is situated a pleasant home and good farm
buildings, is one of the best in Monroe Township.

Throughout his entire life, a period of more than sixty years, the subject of this sketch as been identified
with the history of Monroe Township. Here he was born July 26, 1932, to Rigneld and Sarah (Willison)
Green, natives of Virginia. He was one of five sons and four daughters, five of whom are living, namely:
Ibbie, who first married John Clouse, and now the widow of John Evans: Nancy, wife of Abraham
Mayfield, of Cromwell, Ind.; Sarah, whose first husband was Samuel Miller and who now lives in
Leipsic, Ohio, the widow of Abram Brake; Levina, wife of James Tipey, of Monroe Township; and
Benjamin, of this sketch.

The father of this family was a farmer by occupation, He came to Ohio and settled near Lancaster with
his parents about 1790. Thence he moved to Licking County and established his home in Monroe
Township about 1803, purchased one hundred acres near the county line, which in a few years he sold.
He bought two hundred acres on Raccoon Creek. He gave his attention to its improvements until his
death, March 25, 1862 at the age of about seventy-five years. His wife survived him ten years dying
when about eighty. Both were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church and he was licensed to
preach in that denomination.

The paternal grandfather* of our subject, Rigneld Green, was a native of Virginia and a farmer by
occupation. He was several times married having two sons, by his first wife and six by his second, who
was the grandmother* of our subject. He attained the great age of one hundred and ten years, and so
remarkable was his activity and strength at an advanced age that on the day he was one hundred years
old he road a horse on a gallop. The maternal grandfather of our subject was also a native of Virginia,
probably a farmer by occupation and lived to a ripe old age.

Benjamin Green was born and reared in Monroe Township within two miles of his present home. His
early education was received in the district schools, but his education has been gained principally in the
school of practical knowledge. He remained with his father as long as he lived, then purchased his
present home farm of eighty acres. This he owns and operates, also cultivating an eighty-acre tract that
belongs to his wife, and is situated across the road from his land. Having lived in Monroe Township for
so long a period, he has witnessed its wonderful development. When his father came to Licking County
the Indians had not yet removed further west. Everything was in an unimproved state, Hardships were
many and advantages few. Farmers had no implements save a single plow, a hoe, sickle and scythe. In
spite of privations, however, those days were not unhappy one, and are recalled with pleasure by the
few survivors of those early times.

On the 24th of April, 1856, Mr. Green was united in marriage with Miss Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob
and Elizabeth (Degue) Clouse. Ten children were born of this union, four sons and six daughters,
Granville W., Flora Adell, Marietta, Harry, Missouri, Horton, Helen, Hattie and Benjamin W., and one
that died in infancy. Marietta, Horton and Benjamin are also deceased. Granville married Miss Ruhamy
Fitzwater, and they have two children, Benjamin and Pearl. Flora A., wife of Charles Williamson, has
three children, Orie, Claude and Wandie. Harry chose as his wife Miss Jennie Crawford. Missouri

44

married William Clouse, and they are the parents of two Children, Leah and Gladys. In religious
connections, Mr and Mrs. Green are members of the United Brethren Church in which he is serving as
a Trustee. Politically he is a Republican, and has filled the position of Township Trustee for two years.
One of the progressive citizens of the community, he identifies himself with all that pertains to the
upbuilding of the county's interests and welfare, and gives liberally to all worthy charities.

* This should read father, not grandfather.

Sarah and it's heirs forever, but in case both of said children should die without issue, then, it is my will
that Repehamiah Butt, my nephew, should heir all my estate, both real and personal at their death, and
lastly, I appoint Vardain Michael Cookes my executor and in testimony whereof I have hereunto set my
hand and seal, the 31st, day of March 1812.
