in the 1740’s, branches of the Green family from Prince George/Surry move to
other counties in VA (or had newly created counties form out of the areas where
they were living) and from there some go on to other states, NC, GA, etc.
From that point on, duplication of names, lost records, and members of
other, unrelated, Green families being in the same area during the same period
of time, make it most difficult to follow any one particular family line.
In addition to the Lewis Green
s previously mentioned there are these
Lewis Greens mentioned in various published sources:
