Born to Rufus Greene and Martha Russell, he was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and served in the Kentish Guards in Warwick, Kent County, Rhode Island Militia as a Private as well as his first cousin Nathanael Greene who also was a Private in the Kentish Guards and later was promoted and remembered as Major General Nathanael Greene. Jonathan Greene first appears in the Rhode Island 1777 Military Census, page 10. Jonathan was a signer of the Test Act of 1777, and served in the Kentish Guards, in Captain Squire Millerd's 2nd Company, Militia, Warwick 1780-1781, (Rhode Island Historical Society, Rhode Island State Archives #580 & #223, Providence, Rhode Island). After the American Revolution Jonathan and his wife Catherine (White) moved to Hinesboro, Vermont where they had nine children: Martha, Mary, Catharine, Sophia, Hannah, Orrin, Ruluff White, David, and Eliza. From Vermont it appears that Jonathan, his wife Catherine and son David migrated to Ohio. Jonathan died in 1840 at Liverpool Twp., Medina Ohio.
