Notes

  • ----------------------
    John Thomas (Son of Andrew Jackson Green) was born in Hall County, onFebruary 11, 1844 in District 570 (Known as the Whelchel District,named for John and Davis Whelchel, pioneers who settled on littleriver about 1823.) This area is north if Gainesville Georgia -- thesame area where Mark and Joy Green live in the year 2000.  He died inNectar in Blount County, Alabama on May 15, 1915.  John Thomasenlisted in the Confederate Army in March of 1862 at Marietta Ga.  Therecords show that he served in the 43rd Georgia infantry, Company B.under Captain IT.  Alexander until the war ended.  (This is verifiedby the information he gave in the 1907-8 Blount County Census ofConfedrate soldiers.)

    Following the Civil war, John Thomas married Mary Rebecca Standridgeon September 24, 1865 in Hall County, Georgia and shortly thereaftermoved to Nectar in Blount County, Alabama.  Mary was the daughter ofRev. Isaac and Sarah E.  Hall Standridge who are buried in NectarCemetery in Blount County, Alabama.  Mary Rebecca was born on March24, 1845 in Hall County Georgia and died on Dec. 8, 1902 in Nectar inBlount County, Alabama.

    The birth states of the children tell us they moved from Hall County,Georgia to Blount County, Alabama, between 1867 and 1870.  If theyhave figured the age of Elizabeth correctly back from the census dateof 1 June, as provided in the guidelines, she was born in aboutJanuary 1870.

    The name Elizabeth doe snot appear in 1880.  She probably died beforethe census.  The 1900 census reports that Mary has had 10 children,but only 9 are living.  Some genealogies have conflated Elizabeth andLydia.  But even though Lyddie's age is only 10 in 1880, she wasreported as 4 years old in 1870, and both censuses report she was bornin Georgia.  She the age in 1880 appears to be an error, and all otherfactors match with Lydia known from other records.

    There are two additional children that records report as children ofJohn T and Mary Rebecca.  Annice Elnora Green Cox's Alabama deathrecord reports her parents as John Thomas and Rebeca, with hermother's name being in the form of  a nickname as Becky Standridge, aslinked below to Annice's FAG memorial.  in the 1900 census a son namedRobert E Green was reported as the oldest child.

    John T's memorial on Find a Grave reports he died in Bangor, while hismilitary records report the place of death as Nectar, the town wherehe is buried.  Bangor is an unicorporated palce, but it is listed inthe database of Alabama towns.

    -------------------
    Bangor, also known as Coopers Gap, Copperas Gap, or Coppers Gap, is anunincorporated community in Blount County, Alabama. Nearby Bangor Cavehoused a speakeasy during Prohibition and continues to be a popularattraction for area spelunkers.[2]

    The community lies east of Interstate 65 and about 30 miles north ofBirmingham.

    Bangor is located near the former resort community of Blount Springs.In 1937, the landowner of Bangor Cave, J. Breck Musgrove, convincedinvestors to provide funds for the construction of a nightclub in thecave. The cave soon included a bar, electric lighting, a bandstand,and a lounge for women. A locked room contained slot machines,roulette wheels, and card tables. A spur track of the Louisville &Nashville Railroad could drop visitors off at the entrance to thecave. The caveowners faced legal battles with Alabama governor BibbGraves, and the Bangor Cafe Club was permanently closed in January1939.
