I have been trying to get all of my great great grandparents and Green-22076 is the last brick wall in my way. I've been trying for a couple of years now and can't seem to find anything new. I would deeply appreciate it if someone could help me find his parents.

Hello Jaydyn.

Janet is William's mother. The source in Janet's profile is the 1940 US Census. There, is listed a son born ab. 1925 named Clarence Robert Green.

Were Clarence Robert and William Howard twins?

Is there something I am missing?
