Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Find a Grave about 2000 by a cousin. Together we tried to add as many members of our family as we possibly could. It wasn't long before my cousin became the subject of his own memorial page. Eventually, I realized that there was more I could do than just search for my own family. So, I began trying to add photos whenever I could. Recently I became involved in a cemetery project in my area. A friend and I began searching through the hills, bushes and briers for long abandoned cemeteries, adding what we find to Find a Grave.
Find a Grave is a great site for people who are researching their family. We have made it our goal to do whatever we can to make it the very best it can be.

RE: Joseph Green
I agree that it would be nice to add dates. Currently, I have limited time to look up but I think we should check the Land Grant for Joseph Green and see if we can verify a match to his property and possible later ownership by a Barnett.

I will endeavor to do that - accessing some of these old records and Wills is really something!

Please let me know about what I have as Joseph S.?

Sincerely,

Donald M. Green

Joseph Green
Donna,
I went through my notes and I believe that the J.B. Green buried in the Barnett Cemetery (dates unknown) in Scott County is probably Joseph Green. You discovered this grave! The initials J.B. were used by my Great-Grandfather Joshua B. Green who is Joseph Green's 1767-1814 of Scott County, Kentucky Great-Grandson.

RE: James Franklin VanArsdale
My great grandmother was Maggie Garnett (VanArsdall/VanArsdale) Owens. She was a sister to Muscoe T. VanArdall and daughter of Mary Helen (Nooe) and Thomas Jefferson VanArsdall...so depending where you fall on that tree, I think we are related. What generation are you?

RE: James Franklin VanArsdale
Donna, I was attempting to add the marriage year of 1883. I tried again and it didn't accept, because there was no change made from the original. I think the first time I tried to make this edit, I probably removed the parents, not knowing that would convert to unknown. So, if you would considering editing it yourself, adding the marriage year of 1883, that would accomplish what I was originally attempting to do...not to change the parents to unknown.

RE: James Franklin VanArsdale
I didn't realize I had sent such an edit. I'll look again to see if I intended some other and just goofed!

I apologize about location of Joseph Green's grave
Donna,
I believe that the Joseph Green of Scott County,Kentucky that I am aware of was born in Rockingham County, Virginia in or around 1765-67 and died in Scott County, Kentucky in 1814. The only wife that I am ever aware of was Amelia Matthews. I believe that he had a son Joseph and perhaps her name was Sarah. Amelia Matthews Green is buried at Crawfordsville, Indiana.

All of this information is in my head but I have all of the substantiation in a location and it is a rather large bundle. Joseph Green 1767-1814 is definitely buried in Scott County, Kentucky in a small private cemetery. I promise that I will dig thru the substantiation and get you the information.

My work took a great deal of detective work and I happened on his grave site via patience. Lord knows that there is so much incorrect or very misleading information out there since Ancestry.com has come along. If you are not already aware those little leaves can be very misleading. Unfortunately, I have learned that a good number of people, although perhaps well intended, do not substantiate their work on their own genealogy. Green's having been very prolific and utilization of the same first names over and over, many times within the same generation have added to this matter.

Again, I apologize that I have not looked up the grave site information and promise that I will do so. I do remember that Joseph lived on property that adjoined his brothers John and Charles that were via land grants from the United States in conjunction with the military service.

Sincerely,

Donald M.

RE: Thank You for helping to preserve our heritage!
Donna,
It is good to get to know you. Joseph Green 1767-1814 is buried in Scott County, Kentucky but it is on a private grave yard other than Green and I apologize I don't have that information at my present location but I will be happy to get it for you.

I have most of our Green Family - Names, Dates and Places from the very early 1700's in this country and would be happy to share them with you. I do remember your VanArsdall/Green relationship. My 3 times Great-Grandfather William Green and wife Judy McKinney as well as 2 times Great-Grandfather Charles Green and wife Sarah Cole are all buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Johnson County; as I am certain that you are familiar. My Great Grandfather was Joshua Green their 3rd Son - i.e. William A., Benjamin F. and then Joshua B. Green.
Probably for due to Charles's involvement with "The Mexican War" - both Benjamin F. and Joshua B. Green were raised by William's brother John Green and his wife (as I recall) Mary Cruzan in Tippecanoe Township, Marshall County, Indiana.
Benjamin Green died at a younger adult age.

My Great-Grandfather Joshua Green married Barbara Knode in Franklin, Indiana. Several of their sons were born there and Indianapolis. They then lived in Kansas City, Mo. and Nashua, Iowa where they and most of their children are buried.

Jospeph, my 4 times Great-Grandfather was born in 1767 in Old Augusta/Rockingham County, Virginia and died young in 1814 Scott County, Kentucky married Amelia Matthews in Rockingham County, Virginia who is buried in Crawfordsville, Indiana. They of course are William's (1798-1876)
parents.

When Joseph died as the age of 47-49 in Scott County, Kentucky; He and Amelia had a sizeable family. Amelia moved them to Mercer County, Kentucky prior to Charles and then his father William and Mother Judy McKinney Green moved to Hensley Township, Johnson County, Indiana in 1834.

I will be happy to share the 3 previous Generations prior to Joseph Matthews Green if you are interested but would prefer you to correspond directly thru my personal email: donaldgreen24@yahoo.com as well as share with you my personal phone, etc.

I hope what I have shared with you here clarifies at least somewhat who I am in relationship!

Regards,

Donald M. Green
