Re: Greeno/Greno in Rutland VT & Bradford PA

After seeing your post, I went back over some of the available material, and found some additional clues that would have served as confirmation - for example, Charles and Eliza (Greeno) Lamb named a son Charles Loren, effectively linking Eliza with Loren and Amasa.

Regarding Orrin, he supposedly appears in a Vermont deed, but I have begun to suspect that this is an error for Loren. Jotham would not be a son of Oliver (the probate of Oliver's estate includes a complete list of his heirs, and Jotham or his daughter are not there). I think the Josam, son of Samuel, is a good bet (Myra was probably going, in part, from oral tradition, so could have misheard the name). Samuel did have an older son who I had been unable to name. Is Josam given a wife?

Regarding Experience, she married Esther (Bentley) Greeno's brother, and Bently family tradition calls her as a daughter of Capt. Greeno (Oliver), but as I said, we know his heirs, and she wasn't one. We know, based on the David Ford connection, that Moses had a daughter of this name, and I have to wonder if she didn't live with Oliver after Ford's death. She was formally adopted by Ford, and being separated from the rest may account for her being left out of Myra's account. Experience did name a son Archibald M., which harkens to Archibald Maynard, a son-in-law of Moses.

You mention John, son of Oliver. That's another new one for me. Does the chronicle provide any clue as to the fate of the earlier John, son of Daniel and Lydia? I last have him in Batavia NY in 1808, but then he disappears (but then, so does Moses).

I would like to see a scan of the original of the chronicle, for, as with the Nichols case, knowing what to expect may make the reading easier. Perhaps this can be placed as a picture in Dennis Greeno's site.

It looks like Myra could have saved us all a lot of work. :)
