Query: Green of Posey County

My grandfather, William Harrison Green, was born in or around Posey County, Indiana in 1858. His father was Richmond F. Green and his mother was Eliza Green, both from Illinois. I am looking for my grandfather's exact date of birth, and more information about where in Illinois his parents were from.

  1. Call the Posey County Health Dept
    Births/Deaths after 1882.

    My great-great-grandfather's name was also William Harrison Green-married Mattie Wright. His parents were William Green and Amanda Culley. He was a fireman and teamster in Mt Vernon,Posey co,IN. They were also from Il.

  2. You could also check to see if your library has HERITAGE QUEST online.
    You can access census records, etc for free. This is the best way I have found to access info w/o spending a fortune on other sites. Or, check with the LDS latter day saints geneaology website. Good Luck and God Bless

  3. They were from White and Hamilton Illinois area. Richmond F. Green that married Elizabeth was the son of Richmond Green and Sarah Sally Smith. Richmond Green Sr. was brn. 1793 SC. likely in the Greenville area.

  4. Sarah "Sally" Smith (my 3d great grandmother) was born in 1800 in North Carolina according to both the 1850 & 1860 Censuses. Married Richmond F. Green 11 Jun 1823 in Hamilton County, Illinois according to Illinois Marriages to 1850. My info on him is the same as "anonymous", plus he died before 1860.
