Benjamin served in the Revolutionary War.
He was a Private.
He and his wife Catharine, and their children were some of the earliest settlers of Licking County, having moved there from Allegany County, Maryland, around 1800.
Their children included: Anna, Phebe, Elizabeth, Richard, Sarah, John, Daniel, Michael, Sophia, Benjamin, William and Mary.

In the spring of 1799, Benjamin Green, a revolutionary soldier, and his son-in-law, Richard Pitzer, left Allegheny County, Maryland, to settle in the Northwest Territory. On reaching the neighborhood of Marietta, they decided to remain there a year and raise a crop, thus postponing, for a brief period, their removal further westward.
Early in the spring of 1800 they removed their families to Shawnee run, locating about two miles east of the junction of the North and South forks of the Licking, on the farm once owned by Hon. Wm. O'Bannon. Here they remained two years, when they purchased land upon Hog run, within the present limits of Licking County, Ohio.

His second marriage in 1822, was to
Martha Rees Green.
In 1805, Rev. Benjamin Green began preaching at David Beaver's house and other houses in the neighborhood.
August 22, 1807, the Licking Primitive Baptist Church was organized at David Beaver's house. Which became Licking Baptist Church at Licking Corners in Hebron, Ohio in Licking County. This Baptist church is the oldest Baptist church in Licking County, Ohio.

Martha is buried beside her second husband Rev. Benjamin Green Sr., however there is no stone marking her burial.
