Notes

  • The name Green has the variation of Greene.  At various times in thissame Green lineage we find the name spelled by a family member or inpublic records as Greene, though the normal way is Green.

    "Uncle John Colbert Green always went by Greene.  That’s on histombstone and death certificate.  He and Aunt Pearl are buried in thesame cemetery as my mother, etc., but in a different plot.  Hischildren also used Greene, but everyone else used Green.  Don’t knowwhy he was different.  I may have told you that Uncle Fred is buriedin our family plot at Cottage Grove Cemetery which is a few milessouth of Plain Dealing, LA."
