I have found two sources that talk of the two Thomas Green's of Malden. Both are quite old. One is James Savage, "A genealogical dictionary of the first settlers of New England, showing three generations of those who came before May, 1692" Vol. II, Boston, Little, Brown and Co., 1860 Google Books and the other is Samuel Greene, "A genealogical sketch of the descendants of Thomas Green<e> of Malden, Mass", Boston, Henry W. Dutton, 1858, archive.org .
There is a Wikitree profile for Thomas Green that is well sourced (including the two sources mentioned above), but I did not find one for "the other Thomas Green", who happens to be my eighth great grandfather. I created a profile for him: Thomas Green , but I am concerned because:
- It seems likely that there is a duplicate buried somewhere in Wikitree among the many Thomas Green's that are listed, and
- I wonder if it is considered all right to rely on such old sources?
