Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 14, 1908
Crenshaw County
Alabama, USA
Death: May 18, 1983
Okaloosa County
Florida, USA

Hanford Malachi Green, was from Bradleyton, Crenshaw, AL. His family moved over to the Macedonia area of Escambia, AL where Hanford started his own family before they moved over to Hart, Covington, AL after 1920, near her parents, and then moved on down to Holt, Okaloosa, FL, some time after 1940.

Husband of Lilly Corene Davidson from Covington, AL. She is interred next to him. Beside Corene is her second husband, James Kennedy. Hanford was a son of Malachi Green of Covington, AL & Nancy B "Nannie" Summerline, of Escambia, AL.

Hanford & Corene were parents of John Hanford, Lillian & Mildred. Hanford and Corene had divorced and she married James Kennedy in Aug 1959 in Covington, AL, but then after James Kennedy died in Aug 1971, Hanford & Corene then remarried, 19 Sep 1971 in Okaloosa county.

Son, John Hanford who married Bessie Johnson, is also interred at Almarante.
Bessie Johnson Green is my husband's aunt.

Follow Hanford's line back through his grandparents, Jacob Holland Greene & Amanda Helms, up through Amanda's line several generations, you arrive at John Isaac Helms & Ann Tilman, my 5th gr-grandparents.

Some people wonder (and some get down right mad about it) why some of us trace lines that are only "married into the family", such as this Hanford Green, father of John Hanford Green, who married my husband's aunt. (was that confusing enough?) But in tracing his ancestry, look what I find. His line, through his father here, Hanford, lead me back to my own 5th gr-grandparents. I never knew John Hanford, but my husband repeatedly told me in the past that I would have like him. Funny that in then to find that he, a man who was uncle by marriage to my husband, in looking back further on 'his' father, ends up being a cousin to me that I never knew, had never heard of, but my husband grew up knowing him with very fond memories.

Hanford Malachi Green, my 7th cousin twice removed and father of one of my husband & his sibling's favorite uncles (in-law).

Genealogy = amazing.
