Notes

  • One source gives the birth date of 1767 for Mary Ann, but at this dateher mother would be only 12 years old, if we go by the date forLucretia Franklin's birth.  This is only one of the conflicts that wefind in the dates among various sources and even in the same source inthe Green family line.

    A descendant of Meshack, Barbara Bell, informs me that Mary Anne isthe first daughter, and was born in North Carolina.  But I do not havea date of birth.  Sheri Horton, a descendant tells us more:
    "Issac Horton bro of Jonathan married Nancy's sister Mary Anne andthey moved to Gwinnett Co GA "

    I have found a Mary Ann and Isaac Horton, among other Hortons inGwinnett County, Georgia, in the 1850 census.  This location matchesinformation on Isaac Horton, son of Abraham and Sarah Horton, whomoved form North Carolina to Gwinnett County.  But the age is about 10years earlier than family sources and most genealogies show.  Isaac'sage in the 1850 census is 96, making him born in about 1754, whilesources normally report his birth as about 1763.  Reported birth inPennsylvania matches the son of Abraham and Martha, so this isprobably the right person, despite the difference in ages, which arenotoriously varying in sources of this era.

    The age for Mary Ann could be the right Mary Ann.  She is 88, makingher birth year about 1762.  This might work out for the family ofMeshack and Lucretia Green, except the year of birth commonly reportedfor Lucretia is 1750, which would make her only 12 at most in 1962.So we can allow a little for the uncertainty of ages.  It could bethat Mary Ann Green who married Isaac Horton, son of Abraham, is adifferent Mary Ann Green form the daughter of Meshack and Lucretia.And due to the difference in age for Isaac, this could be a differentIsaac Horton than Abraham and Sarah's son.  We don't have a lot ofsources with overlapping information for triangulation on theseindividuals.
