William Green was born in 1668 in England, he married Joanne Reeder 1690/1700 in Newtown, Long Island. He died 1722 in Hunterdon Co. NJ. and is buried in the Ewing cemetery in Trenton, NJ. His mother and father are both unknown at this time. Several researchers believe his father to be John, while some say his name was Richard.
Joanne Reeder was b. 1669 in Newton, Long Island, NY. She d. before 1722 and is buried at the Ewing cemetery in Trenton. Her parents were: John Reeder and Joanne Burroughs.
Husband: William Green b. 1668 in England Wife: Joanne Reeder b. 1690/1700 in Newtown, Long Island. Children were: 1-Jeremiah b.1710 d. abt. 1762 2-Joseph b.1697 d. aft 1700 3-William b.aft.1702, d. 1786 4-Benjamin b.1707, d. aft. 1768 5-John b.1708 d. aft. 1700 6-Issak b.1712 d. aft. 1700 7-Sarah b.aft.1690 d. aft. 1700 8-Mary b.1704 d. aft. 1700 9-Ester b.1703 d. aft. 1700 10-Richard b.1695 d. 1741 11-Joanna b.aft.1690 d.aft.1700.
Jeremiah and Joanna were a big part of what was known as the “Jersey Settlement.” Husband: Jeremiah Green was born 2-15-1710 in Hunterdon County, NJ. to William Green and Joanne Reeder, (don’t have a date of marriage) d. abt. 1762 in Rowan Co. NC. Wife: Joanna Hunt was b. in 1715 in Ashe Co. NC. d. abt. 1789 in NC. her parents were: Father: John Hunt Mother: Margaret Moore 1. Isaac b.ca.1742 no death date, married Margaret 2.

Some people will tell you that an Enoch and a Stephen were also children of Jeremiah, but this has not been verified. Jeremiah II and Richard are DAR Revolutionary War patriots, and possibly others are, too. I have been told that John b. 11-3-1757 was a Tory and went to Canada, but I don’t know that for sure.

Both her and Richard spent the last years of thir life in the home of their son, Thomas. They have memorials at the Green cemetery in Overton Co. Tn.

When Richard Jr. moved to Tennessee, he dropped the 'e' from the end of his name. It is unclear whether it was from a family feud or exactly why. Jesse went to Bollinger County. There was said to be a 12th child, another boy, 2 names are mentioned:
Richard who married Rebecca Alfred who migrated to Missouri, married several times had several children and spent most of his time in a Bollinger County, penitentiary for counterfeiting. He also killed 2 men in Missouri, most likely, he is ours ):
John Calvin Green was born in Wilkes County, NC. Not much has been found out about Arvazennah, either people don't know of her, or they are unwilling to talk ): She was buried on a farm, the Lester Creach farm in Camden County, Mo. because when she died, there was a flood that prevented them from getting to the cemetery. They had nine children.
