(Added by Busy Bee on 9/8/2010: Source of the above information is not known; however, these were NOT the parents of Elizabeth Searcy Green - see more below)
Elizabeth Searcy was the daughter of Robert Searcy & wife, Millie Ballard of Albemarle Co, VA. They left Albemarle Co after the American Revolutionary War; stopped in Henry Co, VA from ca 1777-1783; then on to Burke Co, NC where Robert Searcy had already filed for land in 1779 and 1780. Robert Searcy is listed in 1790 census for Burke Co, NC; he died ca 1796. By 1800, his widow Millie and their children are living in Rutherford Co, NC. The family of Robert Searcy was the ONLY Searcy family in that area of NC. No relationship has been proven between Searcy of Rutherford Co, NC and Searcy of Granville Co, NC.
All NC census data indicates that Elizabeth & her known siblings were born in VA; Elizabeth was born while the family was in Henry Co, VA so I have corrected her birthplace to reflect that.
An excellent history of the Amos & Elizabeth Searcy Green family has been prepared by their descendants.
Elizabeth Searcy & Amos Green were married ca 1797 in either Burke or Rutherford Co, NC. For information on their children, use the link to Amos Green (buried at this cemetery).
