Thanks Charlie. I especially love the website since it is from Greene County, TN. Maybe my ancestors owned the county...Hmmmmm...

Could be. County named after Nathan (Nathaniel) Greene.

Holy mackerel...on my dad's side of the family, he had a Colonel Nathaniel Greene, back in the Revolutionary War. It just could be!

Well then, I will have to make a "pilgrimage" there before I leave this realm. Thank you for your post and the facts it has uncovered.

There might have been more than one Nataniel Greene in the Revolution; however, the historic figure became a General and was Washington's choice as his replacement should GW be lost during the war.
Gen. Greene's campaign in the South led to Cornwallis' surrender at Yorktown.
He was a remarkable person.

Freerails.com is now doubling as ancestry.com:)

Seriously, that's very cool to possibly be related to a very famous general.:thumb:
