Jane, Judy, Keith, Phyllis etc., your kind words are much appreciated. I tackled the little history project for 'all of you' on this wonderful web.
Lord Alexander de Greene de Boketon, grandson of a Norman noble, received his title and estates from King John in 1066. [*North Hamptonshire, England] He originated the Greene coat of arms: bucks [*bokes] on a field of green; and the crest: bucks heads surmounting a knights helmet.
Dr. John Greene, a surgeon, Salisbury, England, was the first descendent of Lord Greene to come to America. In 1635, Dr. Greene settled in Salem, Mass. John Greene, Dr. Greene's great-grandson [*5th generation] brought his wife and ten children to the Ohio Valley in 1796.
Cheers, hugs, laughs,
