Lewis Green III

1.10.  Lewis Green III , son of Lewis Green II, b. ca. 1680, Prince George Co, VA; m 1st to Sarah (unknown)[i] ; m2nd to Frances (unknown) ; m 3rd to Susanna (unknown)  {This one is a maybe}.  According to Charles Barker  the marriage were in this order:  Frances ; Susanna ; followed by Sarah [ii].

From information compiled by Ardath Jo Green  dated Apr 23, 1984, p. 2:

“Lewis Jr . (III)  is mentioned in legal documents as early as 1709; is a county official of Prince George County (Quorum) in 1714; on the vestry of Bristol Parish in 1720-1722; and sheriff of Prince George Co., in 1735, 1736, 1737[iii].

During 1921 and up into 1722, Luis /Lewis Green Jr.  continues to be active in the affairs of Bristol Parish. He serves as vestryman, church warden, and as overseer for the building of two chapels, Sapponey and Namosend, “…for the ease and conenience of the frontier Inhabitants of ye s’d P’ish ( Bristol )”.[iv]

Lewis Green  was present at the first meeting of the vestry recorded in the vestry book at Ferry chapel on 30 Oct 1720[v].

“Beginning in 1704, Lewis Sr . acquired well over 2000 acres of land in various parts of Surry and Prince George Counties , much of it new land along the Nottoway River .

1704 – Lewis Green  149 acres Prince George County [vi]

In the will of Edward Parham , “Lewis Green  is to have his son Gower, to bring him up, and use his ost. Until he is 21 years old.”[vii]    Lewis Green Jr.  is appointed one of the overseers of the will.  Lewis Green Sr.  signs as a witness to the will dated 12 Mar 1709, prob. 5 Jul 1709. [viii]

Lewis Jr . acquired a considerable amount in his own right including two tracts located a few miles W-SW of Stony Creek, an area originally in Surry Co. but now in Sussex .  In addition to purchasing a half-interest in a grist mill in Martin’s Brandon Parish, Pr. Geo. Co., from his father and Ephraim Parham , he inherited land from his father on Citty (sic) Creek in Bristol Parish, Pr. Geo. Co.  It is possible there were two grist mills owned by the Greens.  In documents dated 1717 and 1722, one mill is clearly identified as being in Martin’s Brandon Parish; another mill (mentioned later) was on or near Stony Creek, Albemarle Parish.”

Lewis Green Jr.  (III) purchases land in 1704 in the area of Hopewell , VA.   He is mentioned in the Surry County, VA records as being appointed as guardian ca. 1709. 

On 4 July 1710 Court held at Southwarke for the County of Surry [ix]:  Lewis Green Jr.  appeared in Court to confess judgment to Thos. Sisom  (sic) exer. Of the last will and testament of Edward Parham , dec’d, in the just sum of 9 lb 5 shillings, being _____ goods belonging to the estate of the said dec’d, delivered to him, the said Lewis by the said Thomas.

Also at the 4 July 1710 Court:  Lewis Green , is appointed overseer of the highway in the stead of Robert Hawthorn , and ordered that he cause the roads to be well cleared and bridges maintained according to law[x].

1714 – Lewis Green Jr.   Justice of the Peace Prince George County .[xi]

Water Mill on Easterly Run

On 31 July 1717 Lewis Green Sr.  of Bristol Parish, Pr. Geo. Co. and Ephraim Parham  of Southwark Parish, Surry County, for £50, to Lewis Green Jr.  of Bristol Parish, Pr. Geo. Co., one half of water mill with one half of appurtenances, the bill being on Easterly Run in Parish of Westopher, Pr. Geo. Co.   Robert Poythress , Essex Bevill , Thos. (X) Leeth, Robert (X) Meloney, Lewis (L) Green , Ephraim (X) Parham,  dated 8 Oct 1717[xii]

10 Oct 1717:  An indenture between James Parham  of the Parish of Westopher in the County of Prince George and Lewis Green Jr.  of the Parish of Bristol in same county.  James Parham sells for five pounds current money 50 acres more or less bounded as follows:  “…beginning at the mill pond of Lewis Green  and Lewis Green Jr.  upon the line of Mr. John Hardy man  thence northerly along the said Hardyman’s line to the line of Capt. Peter Wynne , thence Westerly along the said Wynne’s line or the former line of Mr. John George  to the Easterly run, thence up the said run to the place where it began…”.  Signed by James Parham and witnessed by:  David Crawley , John Ingles , Chas. Roberts , James Thweate , and Justane Hall .  Recorded at a court held at Merchants Hope on 12 Nov 1717[xiii].

In 1722, he receives land from his father, Lewis Green , II.  He is found in the Bristol Parish Church (across the Appomattox River ) registry ca. 1722 as a vestryman.  1726 & 1729- Justice of the Peace, Prince George County [xiv].  Lewis Green Jr.  (III) was the Sheriff of Prince George County in 1749.

In the Bristol Parish Register, compiled by Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne , there are these entries[xv]:

Peter son of Luis  & Fran: Green  born 16th Innstan. Bapt 20th Oct 1720[xvi]
Susanna  d: of Lusi & Susanna Green  born 14th July last bapt octobr 21ths 1723[xvii]

But in A History of Bristol Parish, Va by Rev. Philip Slaughter , D.D. there are only these two entries:

Peter , s. of Lewis Green  b. June 16, bap. Oct 20 1721[xviii]
Daniel , s. of Lewis Green , b. Jun 10, bap. July 30, 1721[xix]

Notes by Ardath Jo Green :

“Based on all available information, it is the belief of this writer (AJG) that:

1 – Chamberlayne is correct
2 – the Luis /Lewis  referred to here is Lewis Jr.
3 – this Peter  died as an infant or small child
4 – his mother, Frances  having died (possibly at child birth).

Lewis Jr.  married Susanna Unknown  who would have been his third wife.  The child Susanna will be referred to in a later entry that also mentions a much older Peter Green  who is almost surely the brother of Lewis Jr.

The location of the lands owned and occupied by Lewis Green  Sr.  and Jr., were partially identified in a land transaction that takes place on 3 Jun 1788.  [See Burwell Geen].  The area known as   Broadway/Broadway Landing was one of the earliest settlements in present Prince George County and was near City Creek.  According to p. 51 of The Prince George-Hopewell Story, by Lutz, the Huguenots who settled at Manakin first landed at Broadway and were then taken to the area in present Chesterfield County that had been set aside for them.

Lewis & Sarah (Unknown) Green  Jr. (III) had at least three (3) children: 

1.10.1.    Lewis Green (IV) [xxxii] , b. 1710[xxxiii] - went to Washington County , VA
Burrwell/Burwell  Green [xxxiv], b. ca. 1714[xxxv]
Sarah Green [xxxvi], b. ca. 1712[xxxvii]; m. Miles Thweatt [xxxviii]

Daniel Green [xli], b. 10 Jun 1721, Bristol Parish, Prince George Co., VA[xlii] ’ bapt 30 Jul 1721[xliii].

In order to settle for once and all the date of birth of Lewis Green IV , was born in 1710 not 1724 as previously published in the Stallard Connection.  He was a vestryman and married to Sarah .  They had three children:  Lewis  who went to Southwest VA ; Burrell ; and Sarah  who m. Miles Thweatt . [Emily Mills Staubauch ]  Ardath Jo Green  inquired to Nancy Clark Baker , one on the compilers of the Stallard Connection, as to the source of the birth date of 1724 for Lewis Green III .  It was stated that information was received from various sources and just tossed into a box without indication as to where the information was obtained.  Simply there is no documented source for the information.

Lewis Green Sr. (IV)  - LONGHUNTER

1.10.1.  Lewis Green Sr., son of Lewis & Sarah (unknown) Green Jr. (III) , b. ca. 1710[xliv], Prince George[xlv], VA; d. Oct 1786, on the Blue Springs Road, near Glasgow, Lincoln Co., VA (presently Barren Co, KY)[xlvi] on his way to Nashville, Tennessee; m. ca. 1740[xlvii],  VA to Sarah (unknown)[xlviii] .

Lewis Green IV of Washington County inherited land in Sussex Co., VA.

There is a survey for Lewis Green  recorded on 4 Oct 1742 for 400 acres, the exact location is unknown. 

On 1 May 1747 Lewis Green Jr.  (IV) of Albemarle Parish, Surry Co., sold to Edward Pettway  for £35, 50 acres, being part of 100 acres devised by will and testament of Lewis Green, deceased, to said Lewis Green and his brother, Burrell, which was by the said Green devised to the said Lewis and Burrell.  Surry Co. DB 1746-1749, p. 44[xlix].

On 1 May 1747 Lewis Green Jr.  sold to Thomas Eldridge  of parish of Martin ’s Brandon of Prince George Co., for £72/s6, 150 acres.  Land was devised by Lewis Green  of Prince George Co., grandfather to said present Lewis Green.  Surry Co. DB 1746-1749, p. 72[l]

After selling the land that he inherited from his grandfather, Lewis Green  moved with a group of friends and relatives to Lunenburg County where he is on the tithable list in Lunenburg Co., VA in 1749[li].  Lewis Green was a one of the unique individuals known as longhunters, as was his son Lewis Green (V) .  Lewis Green Sr.  settled near Porter’s Fort, in the Clinch, about 1772.  He is shown in early Court records, as of March 1774, as owning 41 acres of land adjacent to Porter’s Fort.  Lewis Green , was a vestryman in the church at Kilgore Station in Scott County, VA, before Lewis Green Jr. , came to Harlan County .  In his will he mentions only his son Zachariah , by name but the estate is equally divided among his children.  The will was probated 16 Aug 1783.  His estate is appraised in Hardy Co., West VA.

From the Draper Collection of Manuscripts:

1881  Twitty, W. L . of Brittain , NC                                                            Feb 16 (7DD109)  Major Green ’s Escape

Lewis Green  and the Bear

It appears that at some point, close bonds were formed with Zachariah Green  the Quaker – possibly even a marriage between the two families.  Lewis Green  named a son Zachariah (b. 1760?) and Zachariah the Quaker had sons that (I think-AJG) included a Lewis as well as a Zachariah the Younger[lii].

It also appears that Lewis lived in North Carolina for a while (Orange Co.?) and became acquainted with the Paynes (Quakers from PA), Kilgores, Boones (Quaker background from PA) and other families that moved to the area of the Clinch in the early 1770’s.  It is possible that they were connected with the Regulators – a group in NC that violently resisted paying taxes[liii].


In 1765 the ‘Regulators’ were organized, led by influential dissenters from various sections of the Carolinas, who used every means, legal and forceful to have their grievances aired in the case of ‘taxation without representation’.


Following the Battle of Alamance, at which the Regulators were defeated by the colonial forces, a proclamation was issued by Governor Tryon  pardoning all Regulators who were willing to ‘come in . . . lay down their arms, take the oath of allegiance and promise to pay all taxes.’  However, he excluded from this amnesty ‘all the outlaws, the prisoners in the camp, and the undersigned person . . .’ naming forteen individuals.

Sarah Payne  daughter of the decsd and wife of Josiah Payne  of full age deposeth that her father the Testator made his abode in Washington County on the Clinch River with her and her husband and while he lived with them made a written will.  As the Testor told her in which he bequeathed a certain negro fellow named Charles  to be sold and the money to be divided among all his children.  That sometime afterward in the month of October last her father the Testator and all her husband’s family removed to the settlement on the Cumberland before her father left Clinch (about eighteen months before) he left the written will with Benjamin Nichols ; and not long before this removed gave the said Nichols a charge not to make any use of this will until he heard from him the testor; for when he got to the Cumberland he should alter it and hand this negro to his son Zachariah Green  because all his other children were married and so gone from him; and had moreover gotten the portion that he allotted them all but his son Zachariah.  That on the road to Cumberland at the place called the Blue Springs her father was very sick.  He called up the most of the graven people that were encamped with them and after asking this deponent if she were willing her brother Zachariah should have the Negro and being answered in the affirmative declared before the deponent and sundry other persons particularly Mary Payne , her mother-in-law and George Payne  her brother-in-law and John Payne .  That the said negro Charles should be his son Zachariah’s and should serve no other person and that this son Zachariah should pay all his debts that would have been put in this witing at the time but there was no materials to write on in the Camp And in about three days afterward her father the Testor died and further said not Which was subscribed by the mark of the said Sarah Payne.


Mary Payne , wife of Matthew Payne  of full age deposeth and saith that she did for a long time live as a neighbor to Lewis Green .  The Testator was acquainted with this making the written will and was present when he made the nuncupative will and knows that what her daughter-in-law Sarah Payne  deposed above is the truth and further saith not.  Subscribed by Mary Payne .

Susannah Green

1.10.5.  Susanna Green , daughter of Lewis  & Susanna Green  Jr. (III), b. 14 Jul 1723; bapt 21 Oct 1723; m to Mathew Ligon . 

In 1740 there is this entry in the court records of Prince George County :  Suit in Chancery brought by Mathew Ligon  and Susanna, his wife, agst. Lewis Green , William Green  & Peter Green , exers. Of Lewis Green, dec’d.  Date: 19 May 1740[xcix].   This Susanna was probably the daughter of Lewis Jr. who felt that she was being cheated out of an inheritance from her grandfather; or she could have been the niece of Lewis Sr., the daughter of his sister Susanna  who married William Grigg .  The executors named were, in all probability, three sons of Lewis Sr.[c]

Lewis Green Jr. (V) LONGHUNTER  Lewis Green Jr. (V) , son of Lewis & Susan Green , b. 5 May 1751; d. ca. 1835, Calloway, Harlan Co., KY[ci]; m. 1782, Washington Co., VA to Ester/Easter Kilgore , daughter of Robert  & Winnifred (Clayton) Kilgore  [he was killed by Indians], b. 1750, Washington Co, VA; d. ca. 1825[cii], Calloway, Harlan Co., KY[ciii]

Lewis Green Jr.  was a deeply religious man.  The Meetin’ House Branch was a log church, built on the land of Lewis Green and his wife Easter/Ester Kilgore Green , in Harlan County, Kentucky.  It was stated that he would allow nothing to interfere with his religious observances[civ].  It is believed that Lewis Green preached at this church. 

A bit of information needs to be corrected here:  In “A History of Harlan County, KY”, by Mabel Green Condon  is the statement:  ‘I have been told that the father of Lewis Green  was a vestryman at Kilgore’s Station in Scott Co. before Lewis Green the Rev. soldier came to Harlan Co.’

There is no record of a Kilgore’s Station in Scott Co; in the article on the Boren family of SW VA [cv] there is a mention of a fort called Kilgore’s Station erected in 1783 on a fork of the Red River (TN).  I believe that Lewis Jr. (V)  had been told that his grandfather had been a vestryman at one time. {Lewis Jr. (III)  of Prince George was a vestryman of Bristol Parish} and that this fact became distorted with the re-telling over a long period of time.

The graves of both Lewis & Ester (Kilgore) Green  were marked with a slab, as were practically all graves at that time.  In 1933 a government regulation tombstone was erected on the grave of Lewis Green Jr. , Revolutionary soldier.

Lewis Green  was one of the unique individuals known as longhunters, as was his father Lewis Green Sr.  (IV). 

Lewis Green Jr.  was both a longhunter and a Revolutionary war soldier.

Jo’s Career in the Navy includes a number of firsts for Women in the Military.  Jo’s Naval Career began when she joined the WAVES, at the age of twenty.  [It is interesting to note that at that time her parents were required to give their consent for her to join.]  During WW II,  Jo served in the dispersing office at Bainbridge Maryland, insuring that sailors going overseas were properly uniformed and equipped. 

Jo’s Naval service continued when in 1948, she became one of the first two women to be inducted in the Regular Navy.  Jo served another tour in Bainbridge Maryland molding navel enlisted female recruits for service.  She achieved the Rank of E-7 “Chief” (absolutely unheard of for a woman) and retired after twenty four years of distinguished Military Service from the U.S. Navy in 1967. 

After retiring she began her own tax preparation service operating in Prince George, VA.

Jo Green  is very active in many genealogical organizations, such as:  National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution; Colonial Dames; Charlemagne Society.  She has served two terms as Regent of the Frances Bland Chapter NSDAR.
