Greenup Berlin Berlen
Here is addl info on Greenup from a Union Co, KY Comcast site. Note the last name of Berlen.
"By Wm H Newman; M J Clements; G W Cambron, 1886
Greenup Thompson Berlen, farmer, residing two miles from Seven Gums, is the son of John and Sallie (Stafford) Berlen. His father, a blacksmith, born 1803, in Virginia, removed to Jefferson County, Ky., where he married and afterward removed to Gibson County, Ind., and died at Patoka, Ind., August 5, 1856. Our subject's mother was born in Jefferson County, in 1795, and died in Union County, January 7, 1877. Mr. Berlen's grandfather, Samuel Berlen, was a blacksmith, and a native of Berlin, Prussia. His grandmother, Rosa Berlen, was a Pennsylvania Dutchwoman; his grandparents, Benjamin and Sallie (Curry) Stafford were well-to-do Maryland farmer folks.
Our subject was born in Gibson County, Indiana, Sept. 5, 1838. He received three years' training in Gibson schools, and when the Civil War broke out he enlisted at Princeton, Ind., in 1861, in Co. H. 17th Ind. He was the wagoner of his company and was under fire at Green Briar, Summit and Brady's Gate; he was disabled at Webster, Va., in 1862, and in October, 1862, was discharged.
On March 23, 1864, Mr. Berlen married Catherine Ann Omer of Union County; she is the daughter of Levi and Susan (Moore) Omer and was born in Jefferson County in 1849. Her paternal grandparents were Daniel and Martha (Stafford) Omer; her parents and ancestors were farmers. Our subject took his bride to Indiana, but returned to Union County in 1871 and has since resided here. In politics he is a Republican. He is a quiet, hard working man, who would be a credit and advantage to any community in which he would live."

[Send Reply] Greenup Berlin & Catharina (Catherine) Omer
In hopes of finding new genealogy I was googling this AM on Greenup and his wife Catherine and found your findagrave postings. Based on her husband's name I am almost positive this is my 2g grandaunt, sister to my 2g gm Francis Henry nee Omer, who I have a Catherine Ann "Kate" Berlin nee Omer b abt 1845 probably Union Co, KY, although an Omer cousin has given me her dod as 1864.
I have a lot of genealogy on the OMERs if anyone is interested.
