Welcome to our Revised Website

Greetings. Welcome to the revised Friends of the William Green Farmhouse website.

Notices such as upcoming events relevant to the house and scheduled meetings will be posted on this NEWS blog.

The site has been converted from html to a content management system to keep pace with recent technological requirements. The only notable missing information is some details about the progeny of children of William and Joanna Green. However, all information relevant to the Greens who lived in the house can be found here. If an interest is expressed by members, we could certainly entertain a proposal to add a discussion forum (to facilitate communication about genealogy); however, given the present outlet for that on GenForum and similar places, such an effort appears redundant.

All the Best,

Bill O’Neal for the Friends of the William Green Farmhouse.

    1. Findagrave has lots of info on this familyhttps://www.findagrave.com/memorial/9682834/william-green
      Copy, google and open. Once on the site just click on the family members names.

    2. I am a descendant of Nancy Green who married Evan Scott. Her brother Willis owned a sizeable estate part of which is now Rough River State Park in Kentucky. Both are descendants of William.

  3. Hey Carole! My name is William Joseph Greene II – I go by Joe. Judge William Green is my 8th great-grandfather – in 2 lines. (My 2nd great-grandparents had the same Greene great-grandparents.) My line is as follows – I am the son of Bill, son of Hubert, son of Stephen, son of Solomon and Elizabeth Farthing (the double line), Solomon was the son of Larkin, the son of Solomon, the son of Isaac, {Elizabeth Farthing was the daughter of Margaret Adams, the daughter of Mary Polly Greene, the daughter of Isaac and brother of Solomon}, Isaac was the son of Jeremiah Jr, the son of Jeremiah, the son of Judge William Greene – for a total of 11 generations from the Judge to me (in both lines). I grew up in East TN and now live in VA. Would love to correspond. Blessings!

  4. William Green was my 9th great grandfather through his son Jeremiah I. At some point an “e” was added to the name. I have always been drawn to this area of the country and have always wanted to visit, not knowing until recently that my ancestry traces back here. My family is in Tennessee now. Love discovering new things about us!

    1. The “e” was added to the Green name because in the same western NC around the area of what is now Watauga County there were also families with the surname off “Greer”. There were sometimes mistakes made by the record collectors so the “e” was added to the Greene name in order to keep the records straight.

  5. It is a shame to ignore such an excellent piece of history. I say this as a history student and descendant of Judge William Green (by Jeremiah Green, Sr. in North Carolina).

  6. I am a descendant of Jeremiah Green, Sr. who moved to NC.
    I am a retired judge in NC and would like to communicate.

  7. I very much appreciate the stucco removal on the south facade and east elevation of the house, which reveals the 1730s section (oldest intact section) to be very much more decorated with patterned brickwork than was once thought to be the case. It places this house very much on a par with the John Rogers house (1751), the remains of which is interpreted in the Mercer County Park, and the 1769 house in Yardville, which are the other two most similar exemplars of patterned brickwork in Mercer County. The Green house is the earliest of them.
