This reprint was originally a hand-painted portrait of the Green Plantation during slavery days.
Dr. Green was Jenny Bates Meadow-Sauls' great-great-grandfather on her mother Lois's side of the family. (Lois Sims was the wife of J.B. Bates.) Lois's grandmother Martha (Matt) Green Rich (1866-1940) was the daughter of Dr. Green. Martha Green married James Riley Rich, who came over from Ireland during the potato famine in 1850. Martha and James donated the land and helped brick the original Old Noonday Church, traveling to and from Atlanta hauling brick in a wagon. They were the first people to be buried in the Old Noonday Cemetery in back of the church on Hwy 5 in Woodstock, Georgia.
Dr. Green's first wife Cynthia Dupoi may have been an Indian. We have no census or other information about her. There are no children on record for this marriage.
Dr. Green's second wife was Mary Stephens (married 1823, died in 1851) with whom he had 13 kids.
Dr. Green's third wife was Louisa Johnston (1832-1908). They married in 1851 and had 12 kids, one of which was Martha Green Rich.
Dr. Green and his wives and several of his children are buried in the family plot on the property known as the Green Family Cemetery across the road from the house on Flat Bottom Road in Ball Ground, Ga.
