Some approximate years would be helpful in placing your ancestors. Matthew Greentree was a Methodist Episcopal Minister after his final discharge from Revolutionary War
service. He resigned his circuit post in 1789 when he
married the widow of another retired minister. From 1794
until 1799, he operated a drygoods store in Baltimore, which he closed after being assessed a tax by the city. He
then rented a warehouse in western Sussex Co., De., and
was enumerated there in 1800. His daughter resided with
him. He is the only Greentree of that period to reside in
Baltimore. His son James resided in Cambridge, Dorchester
Co., Md. His other son I believe moved to Kentucky, where
later census records out west place Greentrees. The other
2 children enumerated with him in the 1790 Md census were
the children by his second wife's first marriage. Please
e-mail me and I will see if I can help find your ancestors.
