Two Possible Origins of Garret and Elizabeth Green
The origins of Garret (Garrard) Green and Elizabeth __ are a problem at this time, and there seems to be little factual information before 1772. Currently, there are two possible ancestry tracks: (1) A German immigrant, and (2) an English Green clan from Maryland and Pennsylvania. The latter may have more supporters. Most records seem to spell his first name as “Garret.” At the end of this chapter, the name of another Green, that of Sarah Green is mentioned in a single family reference letter.
1 – Possible German Immigration to Maryland
1765 September 24 – Maryland: A certain Gerrard Green, was found in “Colonial Maryland Naturalizations” who could be our ancestor.
“Gerrard Green, Stofold Brown, Peter Hill, and John Gysinger, German Protestants severally came into Court here between the hours of nine and twelve of the Clock in the T-noon of the twenty fourth Day of September in pursuance of an Act of Parliament made and passed in the thirteenth Year of his late Majesty King George the __ __. “An Act for the Naturalizing such foreign protestants and others therein mentioned ___ Settler or shall Settle in any of his Majesty’s Colonies in America.” Pray to have the several Oaths appointed by the said Act Administered to them they having produced the following Certificate of then having received the Sacrament to wit: Thereby Certify that on the 24th Day of Sep. 1765 Administered the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper unto Gerard Green, Stafold Brown, Peter Hill and John Gysinger – according to the form of the Liturgy of the Church of England.”
“David Love, Minister of St. Annes Parish, Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Witnesses present: William Humpert, Philip Williams.”
“There upon the several Oaths appointed by the said Statute are respectively Administered to them the said Gerrard Green, Stofold Brown, Peter Hills and John Gysinger who severally take the same and likewise make repeat and subscribe the Oath of Abjuration as now prescribed and Test according to the __ and directions of the Said Statute in such Cases made and provided.”
Maryland Provincial County (Judgment Record), Dates – 1765/09 with description: Liber DD 9, folio 20, Gerrard Green Accession No. 801 MSA No: S 551-75 Location: 1/17/2/14.
The Maryland State Archive’s website has this to say about Naturalizations. “During the colonial period there were very few naturalizations becuase most were English, Welsh, Irish, and Scottish settlers who were all considered part of the English empire. Naturalization requirements in English Law (before 1776) required the alien to be a Protestant, to have lived in the colony for seven years, and to take an Oath of Allegiance to the King.”
Another Gerrard Green needs to be pointed out. This other Gerrard Green filed an America Revolutionary pension application in Harrison County, Kentucky where he died 10 July 1845. This application stated he was born 27 March 1762 in Fairfax County, Virginia. His birth date makes him too young to be Maryland’s Gerrard Green.
Therefore, who was Maryland’s Gerrard Green? So far, nothing more has been found concerning him in Maryland. So far, nothing more has been found in Anne Arundel County documents.
Further Thoughts on German Origins
Charles Green reports that a 13 June 1783 Greenbrier County Legislative Petition has a signature of Garret Green to be “Garrat Gruen (? German)” as reported in the Virginia Genealogist*. He continues, “As a result of this, I think we need to comb the passenger ship lists and oathes of allegiance in the middle colonies for a much wider variety of name spellings.” ** These spellings would include: Garrett Green, Garrard Green, Gerrat Gruen, Gerrit Gruen, Grun, etc.
* Virginia Genealogist, Volume 2, No. 4, pages 168-171, 1958.
** Charles Green, e-mail of 22 December 2002
2 –Possible Maryland – Pennsylvania Greens
A family researcher, Tom Houston, states that our Greens are from Maryland and Pennsylvania and that they were Quakers and later Baptists.
Elizabeth who Married Garret Green
The family surname for Elizabeth is questioned. Sometime back, a researcher suggested the name to be Turpin, but later tried to tell others this surname was wrong. The Turpin surname continues to be seen on some websites, and Tom also objects for the Turpin surname: “Improbable that Elizabeth was a Turpin.” Tom believes the Turpin name is most likely a French Huguenot name, and the Green and Allumbaugh first and middle names do not reflect any French Huguenot origin. Because of a family reference to an Indian tie, Elizabeth’s parents would more likely link into the “Bolling” families who inhabited the Greenbrier or Monroe Counties, West Virginia.
(From an e-mail by Donna Alumbaugh 10 June 2001.
The Frosts’ book listed “Gerrard’s first wife as Elizabeth, circa 1760...who was buried on the old farm on Paint Lick Creek.”
(e-mail from Eldon May* in 25 June 2001 and the book is “May and Allied Families 1700-1900,” by Earl C. Frost and May M. Frost, 1947)
Indirect evidence may point to the first name of Garret Green’s wife. Look at the first names of his granddaughters for a pattern: (1) Catherine Green Allumbaugh”s first child was Elizabeth, (2) Barbara Green Meadow’s 2nd daughter was Elizabeth, (3) Mary Green Groomer’s 1st daughter was Elizabeth, (4) Ann Green Poulton’s 4th daughter was Elizabeth, and (5) Henry Green had a Betsy who is probably an Elizabeth. Does this clue help us? (JRM)
Rebecca Wright – Possible 2nd Wife of Garrett Green
Eldon T. May states that “Gerrard Green” was also married to Rebecca Wright in 1761 and that “Ann Green was one of the ...children of Rebecca and Gerrard Green.” Rebecca Wright’s parents were Jacob Wright and Jane Randolph. Eldon goes on to state: “We have been told that marriage license was never found for Wright and Jane Randolph which was not uncommon in those days as there was a lot of common law marriages. We need to prove the marriage between Gerrard and Rebecca and that of her parents Jacob Wright and Jane Randolph.”

Garret Green in Virginia and West Virginia
1772 November 17 – Augusta County, Virginia: This is our first record of “Garret Green” in Augusta County, Virginia, when he applies for a certificate to grow hemp.
1774 August 9 – Botetourt County, Virginia: Tax List taken by Benjamin Estill in the Sink Holes lands for Indian Creek, Wolf Creek, Rich Creek: (includes) Petter Elemburgh - 1, Petter Vanbiber -2, _ Vanbabber -1, Joseph Swoop - 2, F__ Swoop -1, Michael Swoop -1, Solomon Turpin - 1, Jas. Turpin - 1, Garret Green - 1, F. Clendinen – 1.
(Botetourt County tax lists, #54, pages 132-133)
1774: "Surveys for Greenbrier County on the watershed of Greenbrier, all made in 1774, except where noted" (no exceptions here).

Garrett Green in the Sink Holes of Greenbrier.
From "Report of the Seventh Annual Meeting by Ohio Valley Historical Association, Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, 1913," pages 22-23
1774 March 22 – Greenbrier County: 103 acres are surveyed for Garret Green at “Sink Holes” in what is to become Greenbrier County, established in 1778 (Book 1, page 100 and granted 12 August 1785). The 103 acres were reported adjoining John Clendening, William Blanton, Andrew Lewis and Archer Handley, and was finalized 12 August 1785.
This surveyed land is near the north edge of Union, Monroe County, West Virginia. There is now a fine old country home on this land called Elmwood, built by Hugh Caperton, a former governor. Swope’s Knobs (land of Peter Allumbaugh) can be seen from this site. Not too long ago, requests were being made by Gladys Sanders to track Garret’s early neighbors backwards in time in order to find Garrett again.
From a “To All Garrett Green Researchers” letter of Gladys Sanders, undated
1774 Greenbrier County: During Lord Dunmore’s War of 1774, local Greenbrier (now Monroe County) militias were called out for defense from Indian attacks. A company of 49 soldiers under Captain James Henderson (undated) took part and included:
Captain James Henderson, 54 days service
Garrott Green – 6 days service – 9 pence and ? shillings
Peter Ellemburg - 10 days service – 15 pence
1774 Augusta County Public Claims, actually undated: Garret Green was granted an allowance for 2 horses lost, driving horses for 101 days, and for damage on his cornfield.^ These public claims occurred during Dunmore’s War of 1774 and are thought submitted in 1775.
^ “Lord Dunmore’s Little War of 1774,” by Warren Skidmore with Donna Kaminsky, 2002.
1775 Botetourt County, Virginia Tithables: The following taxable were listed for “Indian Creek, Island Creek and Sinkhole lands on both sides of Greenbrier River from Forks?? of Mudie Creek down.” Lands lie in today’s Monroe County, West Virginia.
Petter Elembaugh -1; Garret Green -1, Joseph Swoop -2, John Swoop - 1, Michael Swoop -1, Solomon Turpine -2. James Turpine - 1, John Vanbiber - 1, Petter Vanbibber – 2. (Botetourt County Tithables, #67, page 185-186)
Garret Green signs three Greenbrier County Legislative Petitions:
1780 December 5 – Greenbrier County: A petition to protest the lack of representation when tax money was issued to build a market road to Richmond. Included were the signatures of Garret Green and Peter Ellenbory (who is next to Fredreck Gramor).
1781 April 18 - Greenbrier County: Court Order Book notes James Byrnsides verses Peter Elembouch (Allumbaugh), defendant, did not appear in court and was ordered a conditional judgment, with Garret Green the security for the defendant.
Greenbrier County, W. Va. Court Orders 1750-1850, by Helen S. Stinson, 1988, page 4.
Garrett Green becomes involved in a number of legal actions from 1781 until March 1799 in Greenbrier County. For instance on 29 March 1787, his next-door neighbor Archibald Handley had to pay Garrett Green 25 pounds of tobacco for one day “attending” as a witness against another next door neighbor, John Clendenen. Greenbrier County Court Order Book records show Garrett Green to be spelled Green, with only spelling variations to Garrett, but not as Garrard.
1781 November 20: A petition to stop a tax to build a 47-48 mile road from Botetourt County to Warm Springs in Augusta County. Their reason was too many recent taxes for defense made it difficult for the settlers to make crops sufficient to supply their families with bread and other necessities. Included were a signatures of Garret G(_?_), as well as Israel Meadow, Frerick Gromer within the first 9 signers.
1782 September: "We the commissioners for the district of Washington and Montgomery do certify that Garrett Green is entitled to the just ___ of one thousand acres of land lying in Washington County, on the south side of Powells River, below the wagon ford adjoining the settlement, he having proved to the court he was entitled to the same by actual settlement made in 1775. Given under our hand this 6th day of September 1782. Attest: James Reed, Clerk. Signed Jos. Cabell, N. Cabell, Gabl. Penn – Commissioners(?)"
(Kentucky Land Office at http://sos.ky.gov/land/search/)
1783 June 13 – Greenbrier County: A petition to protect Greenbrier County property owner rights from spurious land claims by American Revolutionary soldiers and officers. In 1773, the Greenbrier Company had sold the first lands to settlers. Included were the signatures of Garrat Gruen, and labeled as “? German,” as well as Frederick Gromer, Israel Medows, Peter Alemboy, and Aris Medows.
(As recorded by “Virginia Genealogist,” Volume 2, Number 4, October-December 1958, pages 100-102, 102-104, 168-171 and kindly pointed out by Charles Green, e-mail of 22 December 2002)
1783 December 24 - Greenbrier County: Garret Green purchased 100 acres on Elk River, old Greenbrier County, Virginia. There is a question of whether Garrett lived on this land
Tax records for Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia show the following names.
1782 1783-1786 1787 1799
Green, Garret yes yes yes no
Green, Henry yes yes no
Elmbough, Peter yes yes no no
Turpin: Aron, Martin, Moses – yes(2) yes
Meadows: Isreal, Arres yes
Bolling, John yes no
Polton, Isaac yes (Poltan) yes
Gromer, Frederick yes yes (Growmore) yes no
Randolph no no
1797 April 21 – Greenbrier County: Sale of land from Garret Green to Beckett & al (condensed): This indenture "maid" this 25 April 1797 between Garrett Green and Elizabeth his wife of the one part and John Beckett and Michael Beckett of the other, each of the County of Greenbrier and State of Virginia. Withesseth that the said Garrett Green & Elizabeth his wife for 5 shillings, current money of said State...sold to...John & Michael Beckett and their heirs a certain tract or parcel of land containing 103 acres lying and being in the sinks of Greenbrier County, joining the lands of George King, William Blanton, John Reaburn, James Handley, and Michael Asking, it being the land that said Green now lives on which he is entitled to by patent bearing dated 12 August 1785, and is bounded as followeth: (no stream mentioned anywhere) ...to corner King, thence...to Blanton...to Reaburn......to Handly...to King...to Begg...with its appurtainances to...said John & Michael Beckett. The said Garrett Green and Elizabeth his wife convey to said John Beckett and Michael Beckett and their heirs. Signed: "Garritt (his "C" mark) Green and Elizabeth (her "M" mark) Green." At a court held for Greenbrier County 25 April 1797. This deed for land from "Garritt Green and Elizabeth his wife" was presented and acknowledged to John Beckett and the said wife relinquished her dower. Therein is ordered to be recorded.
(Greenbrier County, W. Va. Deed Book 1, page 594)
Garret Green Moves to Kentucky
1798 February 6 – Madison County, Kentucky: Garret Green purchased from Martin and his wife Nancy Turpin, of Garrard County, Kentucky, 100 acres for 175 pounds money, a parcel of land in Madison County…to old Boonsborough Trace on Dry Run…to Paint Lick Creek, thence up the Creek. Signed: Martin Turpin, Nancy Turpin. (DB D/367)
Paint Lick Creek is a dividing line between Madison and Garrard Counties and flows into the Kentucky River. “Dry Branch” of Paint Lick Creek is on the Madison County side. The location of Boonesborough Trace is a question mark. The land is about 8-9 miles west of Richmond, Madison County, Kentucky. In 10 September 1809, Garret Green sold his land to his grandson, Garret Groomer, for $400. The deed is signed: Garret Green.
1799 to 1809 - Madison County, Kentucky tax lists record him as Garret or Garrett Green, except Garrad Green 1800, Garrard Gren 1805. Paint Lick Creek noted on these tax lists in 1800-1802 and 1804, 1806-1807. He is listed with 2 or 3 horses for years.
1800 January 7 – Madison County Court: “On a motion of Garret Green, it is ordered that Philip Patton, Samuel Harris, John Taylor, and Leven Cole or any three view a way for a road to be opened from a little below the Ridge Meeting House to Point Lick and make report.” (Madison County Court Order Book B, 1791-1801)
1810 October 3 – Garrard County, Kentucky: Garret’s will, filed 3 October 1810 at Garrard County, Kentucky, lists the following children: Catherine Allenbaugh, Barbara Meddey, Mary Gromer, Anne Poulton, and Henry Green. The executor is John Gromer and witnesses Garrard Gromer, Abraham Burton, Jns. White, and Sherwood Burton. The will was probated October 1810, with the spelling of Garrard Green, with his mark “G”. Notice that his wife’s name is not mentioned in the will, and she is probably dead. Garrett’s last year in 1810 is reported to be the residence of his daughter Mary (Green) Groomer in Garrard County.
“Garrett died at the Groomer home in Garrard County. The Groomer home was only across a little creek called Paint Lick from Garrett’s home in Madison County.” (From Gladys Sanders notes to all Garrett Green Researchers)

The village of Alderson still exists on the Greenbrier River near Virginia. Ann (Green) Poulton was living in 1841 Clay County, Missouri. The Poultons lived in Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia, until 1797, then Garrard County, Kentucky, in Madison County in 1810, and Estill County in 1820 –1825. Eldon May is a senior genealogist for the Ann Green – Issac Poulton line, where the May families are descendants. Years ago, there were May Family Reunions, in which 150 to 250 people would attend. Another genealogist for this family is William G. Polson at http://www.virtualpet.com/genealogy/polson/myfamily/history/isaac.htm
Issac Poulton and Ann Green had the following children:
(1) William Poulton married to Lucy Davis on 8 October 1803 Garrard County, Kentucky. William G. Polson records Lucy Davis was born 1784 and died 1865 in Jackson County, Alabama. Madison County, Kentucky Courthouse records a 23 March 1814 marriage between William Poulton to Katie Alumbaugh. This may be a different William Poulton or a 2nd marriage.
(2) Catherine Poulton,
(3) Jane Barbara Poulton (1788), married on 20 January 1805 at Madison County, Kentucky to Jacob Groomer
(4) Mary Poulton (1 April 1789 to 15 January 1874 Clay County, Missouri), married on 6 August 1810 in Madison County, Kentucky to Garrett (John) Green (5 January 1787 – 4 May 1870 Clay County, Missouri). Garrett Green was the son of Henry Green, Sr.
(5) Elizabeth (Betsy) Poulton (~1790).
Henry Green, Senior served in the American Revolution at the age of 17 or 18 for three months in Greenbrier County. Possibly his commander was Captain Archibald Woods and Henry was stationed along the western edge of New River. He applied for a Revolutionary War pension in 1841 from Clay County, Missouri and was turned down because he had less than six months service.
(F-R4255 ½ R1119, from Virginia/West Virginia Revolutionary War Records, by Patrick G. Wardell, Volumes 2, on CD by Heritage Books Archives)
Henry is noted as a Greenbrier County juror in 1784, 1789, and 1795. In 1795, Patrick Boyd and Henry Green took their differences in a case of assault and battery to arbitrators in Greenbrier Court and the judgment required only each party to pay his own court costs. An 11 February 1795 land grant in Greenbrier County to James Alexander noted his land at the foot of Swopes Knobbs and that it was adjacent land of Henry Green.
Charles Green and Corinna Green Castor are senior genealogists for the Henry and Sarah Green family line Corinna Castor has her history website at (http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Valley/9279/). Henry and Sarah Green lived in the following locations:
1796 and 1803 Madison County, Kentucky tax record.
1810 and 1820 U.S. Census for Estill County, Kentucky. In 1820, he is listed next to his son Garrett Green.
1845 Clay County, Missouri.
Children of Henry and Sarah Green, Sr. are:
(1) John Garret Green (5 January 1787 – 4 May 1870 Clay County, Missouri and buried New Hope Cemetery, Clay County, Missouri) married 6 August 1810 in Madison County, Kentucky to Mary Poulton (1 April 1789 – 15 January 1874 Clay County, Missouri.). Six children born Clay County, Missouri.
(2) Jesse Green (~1800 to ?), married on 29 April 1824 Clay County, Missouri to Mary Groomer. Seven Children.
(3) Henry Green, Jr., who lived in Platte County, Missouri about 1850 or so,
(4) Samuel Hayden Green (born ~1785-1790 and died Arrow Rock, Saline County, Missouri) married 10 January 1816 Estill County, Kentucky to Elizabeth Cain. Eight children.
(5) Mary Green or Polly Green (1805), who married 11 October 1832 in Clay County, Missouri to Collett Haynes (~1794), his second marriage. Five children
(6) Betsy Green,
(7) Jane Green (1808 Kentucky to >1880), who married on 16 October 1834 Clinton County, Missouri to Moses Belcher and was noted in the following locations (thanks go out to Reynda, e-mail 07 July 2003):
1830 U.S. Census of Clay County, Missouri – Moses Belcher
1836 and 1838 Clay County, Missouri deeds – Moses Belcher
1839 Clinton County, Missouri deed – Moses Belcher
1840 U.S. Census of Clay County, Missouri – Moses Belcher
1851 Moses Belcher reported living in Arkansas.
1860, 1870, 1880 U.S. Census of Clinton County, only Jane Belcher with family of Stephen + Sarah (Belcher?) Reynolds, both born 1838 (spelled Runnels in 1880). 1880 census states Jane’s father was born in Kentucky, which is incorrect.
(8) Ruth Green, who married James Bradley and lived in 1851 Illinois.
(9) Joseph Green (~1801->1870 Clinton County, Missouri), married Elizabeth __. Lived in Clay County, Missouri. 1830-1850 and finally 1870 Clinton County, Missouri. Ten children.
(10) James Green (not proven son, born ~1795 and died before 1850) of Estill County, Kentucky, who married 23 March 1816 Estill County, Kentucky to Lydia Barnes (20 October 1792 to 1840-1850?). One report suggests they vanished about 1845 from their Estill County farm suddenly. Eight children.
Search for Sarah (Green) Allumbaugh
Possible 1st wife of Peter Allumbaugh-???
The Henry Green Family
One of the mysteries with the Green ancestry or, perhaps, another Green line, has to do with a Sara or Sarah Green, who is mentioned only once: “One of the family reference letters (old letters handed down) said Peter Allumbaugh married ‘Sarah Green or Sara Grear, daughter of Henry Green, Greens of New England.’” He may have “married two times, as his oldest son, John is about nine years older than the next child. John Alumbaugh named his first son, Henry.” (From Donna Alumbaugh, 19 June 2001)
“I think there is a good reality for Sarah Green because of the difference in age between John Alumbaugh and the next child. I am thinking of another possibility also. Are we dealing with full names, such as Henry Garrett Green or Sarah Catherine Green?” (From Donna Alumbaugh, 21 June 2001)
At this time, nothing else is known. Information in this reference letter should be considered suspect, but may still be useful (Jim Murphy).
