James Jett "JJ" Green
Birth: Apr. 28, 1851
Rappahannock County
Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 11, 1924
Lubbock County
Texas, USA

The Green family tree has many branches, beginning with William Given of "Green's Norton" in Northampton County, England. William Green married Eleanor Duff of the Scottish clan of Mac Duff. He was an important man, being an officer in the bodyguard of William, Prince of Orange. Catherine Parr, sixth wife of Henry VIII, was of the Duff family line.

One of their sons, Robert Green was the first Green family immigrant arriving with his uncle Sir William Duff in King George County about 1710. Robert soon left his uncle and found his way up the Rappahannock River where he built the first home of the Greens in Culpeper County and called it "Liberty Hall." He was a member of the House of Burgesses and one of the first vestrymen of St. Mark's Parish. Robert Green had married Eleanor Dunn of Scotland in his youth. Robert was James Jett's 3rd Great Grandfather.

James Jett Green was born in 1851 at "The Shade" in Rappahannock County, built in 1780 by his grandfather, Charles Green, who had retired back to his first home, "Bleak House," giving the newer home to his son and father of James Jett.

His parents were James William Green (1830-1878) of Rappahannock County, Virginia and Mary Francis Jett (1831-1895) of Culpeper, Virginia. The were married on June 4, 1850, in Rappahannock County, Virginia.

James Jettís father James, a judge, made a will in which he was giving a slave his freedom upon death. The slave, to hasten his death, gave his master poison. On the masterís deathbed he requested that this servant be not hung for murder. But a son, Charles said he must be made an example to protect the lives of others. The slave was hung.

Judge James William and wife Mary Jett Green's graves are not located as of yet.
