    One Green genealogy reports she was a Native American (by including that phrase in her name), but does not comment on which nation or any other detail.

    --  Green_65,

    If this report is true, she was probably Cherokee, or mixed-blood.  This area was expropriated from the Cherokees, but some mixed-bloods chose to "be white" and avoided the forced removal.  Some Greens were Cherokee, some were white.  This line of Greens appears not to be relted to the Cherokee line of Meshack W Greena nd Lucretia Franklin in South Carolina, who died before the 1817 treaty of removal.  But one of their daughters married to a Horton white man moved west in the first removal.

    There is some indication that some of the Greens in Ancil's line, in the Rutherford-Cleveland County area of North Carolina,  married Cherokees.  Some known Cherokees married to whties or mixed-blood families in Georgia were rounded up and forced to move.  Many managed to hide and avoid the roundup for some time and managed to stay in the area.  Some whites married to Cherokees also stayed with the tribe, registered in the original or subsequent removals and mvoed west.
