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 thinks she may have cracked the brick wall there with finding marriage and census records for Edward Green and Elizabeth Craun, possible parents of Ira Green, Tom's proved 2 grgrfa, Franklin Co. OH, 1842 (marriage record). At this point the Green 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 may be 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.

If they are private and were managed by Brad, they're probably on the admin watchlist now, so nothing will happen to them until I do something with them. If their open, they're available to anyone for adoption so it's hard to tell.

Hi Marj,

I might be able to chase them down using his contributions, at least the private ones. As I do, I will add you.

I'd noticed the partial age at the bottom of the stone and thought that date is what it read. So I'll change her profile to 30 Apr since the implied birth date is what I already have and will change the Research Note to show why we're going with the 30th rather than the 21st. and make it a false error if it comes up again in the Error list.

I finally noticed what I'd done wrong on Matilda (Miller) Green. I'd changed back the death date to 31 Apr 1845 (as shown in The Green Tree) overlooking that there is no 31 Apr. I'll change it back now. But where did the 21 Apr come from?

Charles Clay (Clay-11) is my 8th great grandfather. Wikitree only adds auDNA potential matches out to 7 generations if I remember right. The matches I indicated are also genetically related to Charles Clay. You will probably see their names under the DNA heading. The information I added is informational and is intended to help as a confirmation tool for related lines to Charles Clay.

Well, if you removed William Green from the royal Greens of Maryland, then that leaves Pennsylvania Dutch, in the broader sense. The Dietz male line goes back to the Saarland on some trees, but I also saw Alsace given. An alternate father for William Green given by a couple of trees was Allevatius Green who Married Delilah Holbrook in Baltimore.

Thank you for proposing merge for Andersson-4085. Puzzled why you added an unsourced mother to her biography though.

Simply put, tisdale-394 stated that Puckett-640 was her mother. If you have some reason to refute this statement, please provide it. Otherwise, I would think you would want to restore the relationship.

I Really don't know. When entries deviate from own tree, I get confused.
