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.

Wow, I didn't know about deleting comments from my profile page. I deleted several, one of which was yours. Was simply removing them the way you delete email after reading them. I will revisit William's page and work on getting my sources straight, but right now I am busy with Hurricane Irma. All help is appreciated.

Regarding Susannah Green-23123 and her name being spelled "Greene" or "Green:", If her father spelled it "Greene" I think that should be the accepted spelling for her, too. I posted the question on her page.
