Marjorie was born in 1941 at a hospital in Salisbury, Maryland of father Burl Adams and Christine Baker who were living in Selbyville, Baltimore Hundred, Sussex Co. Delaware, situated right at the border of Maryland. She married Tom R. Green in Columbus, Ohio. but continues to use her maiden name, Adams . Marjorie "Marj" Adams worked for 25 years as a teacher and university librarian and has been doing genealogy for 15+ yrs.-- first her paternal Adams-Williams-Martin-Skelton line and then her maternal Baker-LONG-Murray family. Now she is working on the family of her husband, Tom Green. She has hit a brick wall at the parents of Ira Green, Tom's 2 grgrfa, found in Franklin Co. OH in 1842 (marriage record). At this point ancestors of Ira are speculative with FTDNA Green close matches all from the deep south. She has searched for records in those lines and with others in the FF-Green group has determined that the common ancestor is probably William from Baltimore Co. MD in the 1700s.

She is committed to ACCURACY and believes that without recorded SOURCES, which give credit to others and help to resolve conflicting information, genealogy trees are for naught.


1. Marj Adams was the genealogist behind the name Tom Green when she joined wiki tree in July 2014 as Green-11245 . One of Wiki Tree leaders suggested she separate the profiles of Tom Green and Marj Adams - completed Aug 2015, new profile # assigned.

2. Marj adopted hundreds of orphaned profiles originally created by John W. LONG, Sr. [Long-4099] a former, prolific WikiTree member who cited her, "Delmarvalous Ancestors", tree in many of bios he entered. The format he used is unusual and she continues to bring it into compliance with WT style.

Hi, I am still learning the "ins/outs" SORRY but I don't really like the <ref> thing... it hides it so when I go to a profile to read it.. the sources are not there. I click on the (1) and it takes me down to the source then I have to click on that and IF you are a member of ancestry you can see it if not you are out of luck.. I personally like to go to a profile and read all the DATA right now.. but thank you for all your help..

Hi, Marj --

I saw that you're having trouble getting the merge for Aydelott-61 to go through. Every now and then, a merge gets stuck like that. If you post a note in G2G using the tag SYSOPS, one of the team can pop in and unstick it for you. :-)

The owner of this website told us to use the location finder so it is most definitely approved by WikiTree.

Please do not make any more changes to Green/Greene profiles that are managed by Southern Colonies project without first contacting me as project leader. I have written your mentor who will assist you with this.

Thank you,

Mary regarding the Green family member crossing the Delaware, I found him, William R. Green. You can google, Journal if the American Revolution Guiding Washington to Trenton. It states in this article, William R. Green experienced ferry operator assisted Colonel Glover's Marblehead Regiment in crossing the army. He would be a grandson of William Green and Johanna Reeder. I'm pretty sure the plaque abt him being part of the crossing was on the grounds of the William Green house, in which, sets on the Ewing NJ college campus; the plaque is missing and believed to have been stolen by 1 of the fraternity's. Please ck this out for me and make sure I am correct. I would appreciate it greatly.

I am doing the DNA test. Will that help with this? Why do you think Birchett isn't his wife? How do you think the name should be spelled? Can we trust the DAR lineage?

I have changed my mind. After thinking about it all day, and doing some more digging, I think the DAR source shows that Birchett Green is the wife of Seymour Ransom. There is a discrepancy in the DOB, but all the other details match. I am going to add her back is as his wife.

I did some more research on Seymour Ransom. I remember now that there are two men named Seymour Ransom who lived at about the same period of time. The Seymour Ransom who was married to Birchett Green was born in 1769. I left the link with a footnote about the info on the profile for the Seymour Ransom who is my 4th great uncle. Thanks for bringing the mistake to my attention. Are you related to one of them?
