Widow Greene Remarries

I had the following September 8, 1900 New York Times article announcing the remarriage of Widow Greene emailed to me by Nancy Gale out in Nebraska. I thought it particularly interesting that Widow Greene was a descendant of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

I also thought those of you who had been following the news articles about Dr. Green's death near the Wading River in the 2/25/11 and 2/28/11 Blog entries might be interested in this follow up article.

  1. Interesting. Sam is a direct descendant of John Hart, signer of the Declaration of Independence, through his mother, Frances Willis Briggs, from Stow Creek, NJ.

  2. Phyllis,

    Good to hear from you. I didn't realize that Sam had such an important pedigree.
