 Greene Bentley Sr. is credited with being among the first settlers inwhat is now the town of Veteran, New York. The name of the towncommemorates his and other settlers
Revolutionary War service:
Prior to the War of Independence, Greene moved his family to Warwick,Orange County, New York. He is listed in a roster of state troops inNew York archives as: 'Green Bently' , Private, Wisner Regiment, BalyCompany. D.A.R. records indicate he was in the 4th Regiment of theOrange County Militia. Whatever active military service Greene or hisunit may have seen is unreported. There were battles fought in thearea of Orange county (at Tappen on December 07, 1776 and September28, 1778. Also at Tarrytown August 30, 1779 and July 15, 1781).
He (evidently) never made a claim for a pension or bounty land butthis does not mean he was not entitled to these benefits.
His service was probably typical of that of most soldiers who were notmembers of the regular Continental Army but who fought for shortperiods, not far from there homes as the tide of war ebbed and flowedacross the Colonies.
After the war he moved to the Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania, scene ofa prolonged and bitter dispute between the governments of Pennsylvaniaand Connecticut called the Pennamite Wars.
Another source says he served through the French and Indian wars andalso in the Revolution, and the old Tioga County town of Vereran wassupposedly name in his honor.
