Newspaper items found relating ot the Barrow and Green Family Reunions:

"Pike County Journal" - August 30, 1901:

Zera, Aug. 27, - There was a pleasant reunion of the Green and Barrow families last Monday at the old Green and Barrow grave yard. About 30 in number were present and many pleasant memories were recalled of their grand-parents and most of their deceased buried there. They were some of the old pioneer citizens of Georgia.
Mrs. Mary Head (daughter of John and Nancy Daniel Green) had the privilege of being with the family. The spot is her old homestead. She drank water from the old spring that she had not visited for 50 years.
The grave yard was nicely decorated, and all left the grounds feeling refreshed by the tender cords of love which it takes to make a true family reunion.

"Pike County Journal" - September 26, 1902:

It had been previously arranged for the Green family, all those that were related by blood or marriage to meet at the family cemetery near Zera, in Pike county, with well fitted baskets for an old time family reunion. Tuesday the
16th of September was set for the day. It dawned with a bright and beautiful morning, with all the glory of Indian summer. Early the vehickles [sp] began to arrive from all directions, filled to their utmost capacity with loving
friends and smiling faces. After a hearty handshake with fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins, uncles and aunts, in fact all we met were kinsfolk. All seemed enthused with a slight foretaste of that great reunion, when we will all be gathered safe at home.
We remained at the cemetery some little while looking after and caring for the grave of the loved ones, after which we repaired to the famous old rock spring, where our father, grand father and great grand father and great great grandfather Green settled, a pioneer in the early part of the nineteenth century, before the trail of the Red Man had vanished from his native forest. It was here he settled near this spring, and reared a large, remarkable family of eight sons and six daughters.
While some died in infancy, all others married except their oldest daughter, who died while in the flush of early youth. This patriarch and his wife were named John and Nancy Green. Ther children were as follows: Mountain, Hartford, Gilben, Rebecca, Alethia, Malinda, Franklin, Daniel, Jonah, Richard, Martha, Mary, Union, and Tabitha. All are dead except Mrs. Mary Head, of Brushey, and all left families of children. Hartford and Gilben were twice married, leaving two sets of children each.
Old Uncle Peter Green, so well known around Griffin, was once the property of John Green. No doubt Uncle Peter has often heard the screech of the wild cat and panther mingled with the primitive howl of the wolf, which were as familiar sounds in those days of yore as the song of the English sparrow is around our country homes today. All things have changed except the old rock with its natural steps descending to the spring, which nature seems to have
hewn out of the cavity of the rock, where the water still gurgles as pure and limpid as it did when Uncle Peter was a little pickaninny playing around his father's cabin door.
The large poplars, elms, and water oaks that overshadow the rock and spring, afforded comfortable shade for us all, being a large concourse of people.
After prayer by W.U. Kendrick, we soon repaired to dinner, it being spread on the snow white cloths on top the full length of this old big rock. The most toothsome repast we ever saw - it was enough to tempt an epicure. After the
blessing by Rev. Kendrick, all seemed to do it full justice to their hearts content - a bountiful repast it was indeed.
Later on we sung "God be with you till we meet again," which we intend to do on the second Tuesday in September, 1903, if nothing providentially hinders. All that are related by blood or marriage are cordially invited to come and be with us at our next reunion - no other expected. Now, may God be with you all till we meet again.

- One Who Was Present.

"Pike County Times-Journal" - August 23, 1907:

The annual reunion of the descendants of John M. Green will be held at the old Green homestead in the Second district of Pike on the first Wednesday in September. The building committee appointed last year reports that an ample arbor has been built down on the creek, so that all may be comfortably quartered in case of showers.
