  • Status of this child is uncertain.  A source for most of this familygives a birth date of 1797 for Henry.  This might be the child ofanother member of this Green family.

    Other sources give a birth date of 1756 and 1770 for the same HenryGreen.  But note that his supposed mother, Lucretia, was only born in1855!  I am thinking this is related to a conflation of two or perhapsthree generations, with two men named Meshack, and perhaps two or moresons named Henry.

    --  Jess Headley,

    The two wives Caroine and Alley (with the same maiden name, you willnote) might represent two different families of two different HenryGreens.  It could be a father and son -- birth dates of children wouldmatch with the family of Henry and Caroline Saxon being the parentfamily and Henry who married Alley Saxon as the son. After continuingto analyze the ages, brith dates and other family factors, I began towonder if the reported wives Caroline and Alley were the same person.If Alley was the second wife, she was in her 40s before she startedbearing children.  It seems more likely that a younger woman continuedbearing children into her mid to late 40s.

    Birth dates given for children of Henry and Alley Saxon are in the1800s-1830s.  This is late if not impossible for a person born in 1756(as some sources report, making her 70 years old at the birth of thefirst known child!), possible for someone born in 1770, but morelikely for a person born in 1797.  But note Headley's dates givenhere.  He has no dates of birth,d eath or marriage for Caroline Saxon(reported first wife).  Marriage to Alley Saxon is reported as abt1807 and birth of Carline's first child is also reported as abt 1807!Allowing for  ayear r more play on the estimated dates, this seems toindicate that Caroline and Alley were the same person.

    After finding some censuses, the details were clearer.  In the 1850census, Alley is apparently a widow, with Henry missing from theenumeration, and what appears to be three daughters in her household.But this means the report that Henry died in 1869 would be wrong.Maybe he died in 1849.  Alley is 65 years old.  At this age, she wasborn in about 1785, in the range reported by Headley in the genealogyabove.
