Descendants of Joseph Greene This book contains the genealogy of the Greene family who left England and settled in Rhode Island. Bibliographic Information: Greene, Principal Frank L., "Descendants of Joseph Greene" Joel Munsell's Sons. Albany, NY. 1894, pp 454-462.

EBENEZER GREEN was born about 1730-5, probably in Sussex Co., N. J.; lived there until about 1775, then removed with his family to Muncy, Northumberland (now Lycoming) Co., Pa. He may have been a son of Isaac and grandson of William, who settled in Ewing, near Trenton, in 1685. Family names, however, suggest relationship with the descendants of Thomas Green, of Malden, Mass., who settled in Hanover, N. J. After removing to Muncy, he enlisted as a soldier in company with his sons Ebenezer Jr., Joseph, and probably also Benjamin.

Thos. Robinson, the same company to which his brother Ebenezer Jr. killed the previous month, had belonged; was engaged in garrison duty at Forts Minegan and Borlier, and with occasional scouting parties till hostilities ceased. He was the youngest soldier of the war.  June 2, 1788, he removed to Chemung, N. Y., and May 30, 1817, settled in Madison, Lake Co., Ohio. He was a man of large physique and of marked ability.
