From The Greenes of Rhode Island:

871. JACOB VARNUM" GREENE (Jacob \ Nathanael \ Jabez ^
James % John ') was born in 1773. He married in 1814, Patience, daughter of Mr. Cox of Dorchester, Mass., and widow of Josiah Randall, a paper manufacturer. It is said he was not a very successful business man. February 6, 1808, his brother, Dr. Jabez Greene, made two wills. The first bequeathed all his property to his brother, Jacob Varnum, including his shares in the Greeneville Paper Manufacturing Company. The paper mill had been erected that same year near the "Old Forge." Jacob Varnum Greene died July 5, 1815. His wife survived him and married (3) Rev. Mr. Smith, a Baptist clergyman. After his death she resided with her daughter, Mrs. Oliver C. Arnold, at the Greene homestead, which they owned, with eighty acres of land adjoining. Mrs. Smith was quite vigorous, with facilities unimpaired, when, in her eightieth year, she visited Hartford, Conn.,
and attended church with a sister of eighty-four years and a brother of eighty-two years — her family being remarkable for longevity.


1824. Elizabeth Margaret, born November 23, 1814, married (i) Harris Inman,
