Amey Sweet Sprague cannot be her daughter. She was, apparently, still married and having children by Phillip Arnold. In Amey's info, her FAGM states her mother was Susanna Spencer Sweet, not Susanna Greene Sweet. Amey needs to be removed from this listing. There was, apparently, more than 1 Benjamin Sweet running around Rhode Island in this time period.

Hello Donna!

I have counted 33 children... Would this be correct? Are they her own or her husband's with other women? e.g. Woods children... What do you think about this? Thank you, Claudia A. del Valle

Hi Claudia,

I am in the process of researching this. I saw that there 3 profiles with for this person, and thought I wait for them to be merged then move forward with documenting the family.

Greene-5471 and Greene-2011 appear to represent the same person because: Same individuals again. Greene -1 is also a duplicate.

Good morning to you all!

Harold Templeton: We have changed Green into Greene. Thanks for your suggestion!

Adams-16917: It seems that Benjamin's will was signed in 1737, long before Susannah died, and (apparently) it was not changed... I am still looking for more bibliography to support this theory. Welcome all contributions to this issue!

Also, do not understand your comment: last 2 refs need formatting.

Since Susannah Greene's father spelled his name "Greene" that should probably be the way her name is spelled, too. What do you think?
