Green name in Dickenson Franklin county New York late 1800’s

+4 votes

My great grandmother is Lottie Pearl Barrett (Green) Gibbs (1895-1954) who married my great grandpa John Charles Gibbs (1894-1951) She was adopted by her grandparents Norman Barrett 1835-1918) and Charlotte Barrett (1835-1926) Her mother’s (Evalina Nora Barrett 1874-1897) parents. However she is of her father’s blood (she is William Charles Green’s daughter) and we have hit a brick wall with no further info on him. The area my Green family is from is Dickenson, Franklin County, New York, USA. This is where great grandma Lottie was born

    Yes this is their marriage record but doesn’t show his parents names
    Thank you

    Betty do you know who is the parents for my great great grandpa William C Green? Is it William Green who married Eliza? I see the big age difference of Eliza Green age 25 and her 2nd husband James Willis age 70
    Wow thank you for this post!!!
    If you have patience and time check out  Use the Franklin county search term and the years you think would be covered. I found a record for Charlotte receiving honors in school in St. Regis.
    TIP: skip ALL of the Ft Covington paper references. Any references for William Green in most of the others in the 1930s and 40s in any paper.  There was a William Green, president of a labor union and a Secretary of ?? in the Roosevelt
    administration that made many articles that you can skip from that era.
    There are 15+ pages to go through but some of them are totally skipable.  The dates you know you need may not be there but take a look.    Good luck
    Her surname is actually Hill not Nill but this is her. Thank you
    Thank you for posting this resource I will definitely use this resource
    Need a date of death and death record any help is appreciated
