Notes

  • Several undocumented genealogies of this family report that Henry andAlley's son Jeremiah was born in 1833 and died in 1834. None of thesegenealogies has any documentation or discussion, not mentioning wherethey got this information.  In the 1860 census there is a JeremiahGreen, with his wife Jane enumerated near other members of thisfamily,  So it seems likely this is the Jeremiah reported in virtuallyevery genealogy as the son of Henry and Alley.

    But we have another problem is the age and time of birth.  Jeremiah isgenerally agreed to have been born about 1833, and this is consistentwith the census entry in 1860, where Jeremiah is reported to be 27years old.  If Alley is his mother and he was born in 1833, from herbirth year in 1785, Alley would have been 48 when he was born.  Thismight be theoretically possible, but how likely?  It seems likelyseveral generations of this Green family are mixed here, or differentpeople of the Green lineage with the same names have been merged.
