 Many Georgia Greens are of the opinion that there is a connection between these VA Greens and the Rhode Island Greenes.  So far the researchers of the above Green family have found no connection.  While this belief has been stated no proof has been offered.  There are many fine books written on the Rhode Island Greenes the best is, The Greenes of Rhode Island, with Historical Records of the English Ancestry 1534-1903, compiled by Louise Brewnelle , member of the New York Genealogical Society and the Long Island Historical Society, NY for the descendants of John Green e [cccliv].
