INTRODUCTION 



IN publishing this History and Genealogy of the Greenlee Family we have 
aimed to make it as complete and at the same time as simple as possible, 
embracing the desirable features of numerous other works of this kind hitherto 
published. 

Several thousand descendants of the Greenlee Family were furnished with 
blanks to be filled out with data concerning their families, but many of them 
failed to respond to our communications. 

Whenever it has been possible we have copied wills, records, etc., directly 
from the originals. Where members or descendants of a family have given 
different dates, preference has been given to those which seemed most plausible, 
according to existing circumstances. In many cases where there were no means 
of determining which information was correct, the various dates have been 
given. When Bible records have differed from town records, the latter have 
been accepted as correct. 

The work of collecting information regarding different members of the 
Greenlee Family has unfortunately not been made easier by previous gene- 
alogies and we have been obliged to rely on the co-operation of its members for 
a large portion of the information obtained. We have to thank the descendants 
generally for their kindness and readiness to assist us in many ways. 

Ralph Stebbins Greenlee. 
Robert Lemuel Greenlee.

EXPLANATORY 



Each Greenlee descendant has been traced back as far as possible with the 
data we have been able to obtain, and will be found under the heading of the 
branch to which he belongs. Those whom we have identified as descendants of 
the early Greenlee immigrants to America have been given individual numbers. 
Those whom we have been iinable to connect with any of those branches have 
been placed in the UNIDENTIFIED under Scotch, Irish, English and Unclassi- 
fied. In the unidentified portion only those who married and had families have 
been given individual numbers. 

The ancestral line (in braces) follows the name in black-faced capitals. 

The mark + indicates that additional data will be found in the next 
generation. 

The superior figure following a name indicates the generation. For example : 
No. 197, Ralph Stebbins Greenlee * indicates that he is in the fourth generation 
from Michael of Kent County, Delaware.

THE GREENLEE FAMILY 

(Contributed.) 



Of an ancient Family "thorough Anglo Saxon," named Greenlee, called in 
the Midland Counties of England, "The Greenlees," from the researches of 
John Thorpe, Herald of Dudderton Manor, Warwickshire, we learn that two 
Knights of this family, "Harold and Athel Greenlee" of the Green Chase, 
Northumberland, for heroic gallantry in the Norfolk Campaign against the 
Danes, were gifted by King Alfred to a Demesne in the County of "Warwick, 
called Balsal Chase, now called Balsal Heath, where this branch lived in opu- 
lence and high respect, up to the time of Queen Elizabeth, when, through Lord 
Wentworth, Jlinister to that Royal Lady, they were granted estates near the 
City of Limerick, Ireland, thereon to establish an Armory and Fabricque for 
small arms and Culverin Cannon. Here this branch lived in high repute up to 
the time King James was with William, Prince of Orange, when their Hall and 
Works being sacked and burned, they were invited to the protection of the 
Marquis of Downshire. But thereafter, being greatly reduced in fortune, 
James Greenlee and family embarked at the port of Waterford, Ireland, with 
intention to settle within a township called "Kennet Pennsylvania," but must 
have been diverted from that province to the neighborhood of a place called 
"Marlboro Port, Maryland" as letters bearing that Post House Mark were 
directed thence to Sir John Lanier, of Portsbello, Ireland, concerning the pur- 
chase of estate for said Lanier's family, by James Greenlee; also letters from 
same Post House to Lord Lumley, of Lumley Castle, Durham County, England 
(old friends of the Greenlee family), which letters were preserved in the 
archives of Aston, Lee Manor Hall, Warwickshire, where they were found in 
the year 1830 by John Thorpe, Yeoman, of Duddeston Manor, said County, 
together with a manuscript history of the Greenlee family, a duplicate inden- 
tured copy of which was found in 1848, in the British Consul General's office, 
Baltimore, and forwarded by Anthony Barclay, of the British Consulate, 
Barclay St., New York, to James Watt, Lord of the Manor, of Aston on Lee, 
Warwickshire. Which James Watt was related, on the maternal side, to the 
Irish Branch of the Warwick County Greenlees, supposed to be settled in the 
neighborhood of a place called Marlboro Royalty of Maryland, the letters hav- 
ing been posted there. 

This Irish branch of the Greenlee family, as well also the Greenlees of 
Edgebaston, Warwickshire, were entitled by ordinance of Henry the 5th, for 
distinguished quality, to have their Armorial bearings topped by a green 
mound and plant of Oak, such for glorious memorial to the Knight of the Royal 
Guards, "Guilliaume Greenlee," who, while leading a storming party to the

breach at Harfleur, seeing his Standard Bearer killed and the Standard lost, 
plucked up a young oak plant, called upon his troops to follow a Greenlee 
and that plant to victory. Whence his soldiers cheered forward to the breach 
which was gallantly captured, but within the bastion sorrowfully found their 
brave commander dying of his wounds, with his last words begging his men 
to bury him on the Fortress Glacis with the sprig of Oak, which had served 
for their standard to be planted over his grave; which command the soldiers 
piously obeyed. On the return of King Henry at the close of the campaign, 
his Majesty seeing the young oak flourishing over the green mound, where lay 
the valorous Greenlee, ordered the mound to be carefully turfed and fenced, 
and a slab built thereon, bearing the name Greenlee, "plus brave, &c., plus 
braver" and the Latin motto, "Fortes et fidelis." The King, also, as a further

PRESBYTERIAN PERSECUTION. 

[As the Greenlees were Presbyterians, the following will be of interest to 
the various families and give them a better understanding of the sturdy 
strength of character and deep-seated religious principles of their forefathers. 
Those who subscribed the covenants were called Covenanters.] 

When Queen Elizabeth died on March 24, 1603, James VI was proclaimed 
her successor. He had a tixed aversion to a Presbyterian Church, and as fixed 
a love for a church on the Episcopalian plan. A Presbyterian Church, he had 
found, could not be easily induced to do royal bidding. He was not long 
master of the English throne before he applied himself to his cherished design 
of putting down the Presbyterian and setting up the Episcopal Church in 
Scotland. 

The Scotch make of religion their main guiding standard of life and rule 
of condiict. Its requirements are supreme over those of any temporal or politi- 
cal consideration. Its functions and obligations are superior to those of any 
secular authority, often, indeed, more sacredly regarded than the bond which 
holds together the social fabric. 

In Scotland, also, the tree of liberty had a more favorable soil and less 
burdensome bonds than in England, and it was watered and nourished by the 
blood of many martyrs. The power of the nobles was more frequently opposed 
to that of the king, and as a result there was often a division and sometimes 
a disregard of authority. Under these conditions, the rights of the people were 
more fully regarded. Then, when John Knox stirred the soil and fertilized the 
roots with his Calviuistic doctrines of equality and liberty, the result was a 
rapid growth and a complete bursting of restricting bonds. 

John Knox, a man of learning, eloquence, and fearless courage, had led the 
reformers to victory. A sj'stem of education was provided for the people. 
The principles of Protestantism sank into their hearts and changed the 
habits of their lives. In two generations men of clay were transformed into 
men of iron. An ignorant and changeable people became the foremost 
race in the Avorld, possessed of all the qualities necessary to render the Celts 
of Ireland subject to the authority of England. Hitherto English colo- 
nists had been absorbed by the Irish. But now another description of colonist 
was to settle in Ulster, capable of holding the Celt in subjection, and keeping 
the "back door" of access to England closed against all her enemies. After 
James became King of England, he appointed as Lord Deputy of Ireland, Sir 
Arthur Chichester, who desired to see the country colonized with men of his 
own race and religion. It was reported that he intended to seize the earl of 
Tyreonnell and the earl of TjTone, both of whom had been in rebellion against 
the Government. But these two chieftains, with many of their friends, fled 
from the country in 1607, and never returned. All their estates, embracing 
the six counties of Colerain (now Londonberry), Tyrone, Armagh, Cavan, 
Fermanagh, and Donegal, were immediately confiscated by the Crown, and 
became available for purposes of plantation.

PRESBYTERIAN PERSECUTION. 17 

Colonists from North Britain had already possessed themselves of large 
portions of Down and Antrim, the two counties lying nearest to Scotland, some 
years before the inception of King James's "Great Plantation." 

At the beginning of the seventeenth century, the north half of county Down 
was ruled by one of the cadets of the great O'Neill family, who bore the name, 
Con McNeale ilcBryan Feartagh O'Neill, and lived in the old mansion house 
of Castlereagh. two or three miles distant from Carrickfergus Castle (now 
Belfast). Toward the end of the year 1602, Con happened to be entertaining 
some relatives in his halls of Castlereagh, when his wine gave out. A fresh 
supply which had been ordered from Spain, had been brought as far as Bel- 
fast, but was detained on its arrival there bj' the Queen's excisemen, until Con 
should pay a lately imposed duty, concerning which he neither knew or under- 
stood anything. The old chieftain's blood arose, and he ordered some of his 
retainers to proceed to Belfast and bring the wine by force. There his servants 
had an encounter with some English soldiers, and in the melee one of the 
soldiers was killed. O'Neill was therefore accused of "levying war against 
the queen," and lodged in Carrickfergus Castle. Sir Arthur Chichester pro- 
posed to hang him. In this extremity Con's wife communicated with a friend 
in Scotland, one Hugh Montgomery, who was the Laird of Braidstane, in 
Ayrshire. He had been looking for an eligible "settlement" in the north of 
Ireland, and kept himself posted as to what went on there through relatives 
who traded to Ireland from the port of Irvine. In consideration of the cession 
to himself of one-half of Con's lands in county Down, he assisted the prisoner 
to escape. Con entered into an agreement with Hugh Montgomery, by which 
he ceded to that gentleman half his lands in Clannaboye, on condition that 
the latter should obtain a free pardon from King James, and get him permis- 
sion to kiss the king's hand. This Montgomery proceeded to do, but, finding 
his own influence at court not sufficient, he was obliged to have recourse to a 
brother Scot, whose word had more weight than his. This was James Hamil- 
ton, who had been employed by James I as his political agent in Dublin. "With 
his assistance, Con received free pardon and was permitted to return to his 
house of Castlereagh. It had become necessary for Con to increase his prom- 
ised recompense to Montgomery by making it sufficiently large to satisfy 
James Hamilton also. So, when the patent was finally issued it granted to the 
said James Hamilton all the lands in the upper Clannaboye and the Great Ards 
which had been possessed by Con, or by his father in his lifetime. Hamilton 
had previously entered into an agreement with Montgomery and O'Neill as to 
what portion he should retain and what portion Montgomery should receive. 
Both Montgomery and Hamilton, as soon as their patents were pa.ssed by the 
Irish Council, crossed into Scotland to call upon their whole kith and kin to aid 
them in the plantation of their vast estates. Both were Ayrshire men, from the 
northern division of the county. From them are descended numerous families 
in Ulster. The land which Hamilton had acquired was "planted" with Scot- 
tish tenants, the most of them evidently from the some counties in Scotland — 
Ayr, Renfrew, Wigtown. Dumfries, and Kirkcudbright — as the men who fol- 
lowed Montgomery. 

The northeast corner of Ireland had long been held by the ^facdonnells, 
a clan which also people the islanil of Jura, and Cantyre on the mainland of 
Scotland.

18 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

The plantation in county Down and county Antrim, thorough as they were 
as far as they went, were limited in scope in comparison with the "Great 
Plantation of Ulster," for which James I's reign will be forever remembered 
in Ireland. The plan adopted for the colonization of the six "escheated" 
counties was to take possession of the finest portions of this great tract of 
country, amounting in all to nearly four million acres; to divide it into small 
estates, none larger than two thousand acres; and to grant these to men of 
known wealth and substance. Those who accepted grants were bound to live 
on their land themselves, to bring with them English and Scotch settlers, and 
to build for themselves and for their tenants fortified places of defence, houses 
to live in, and churches in which to worship. The purpose was not only to 
transfer the ownership of the land from Irish to Scot, but to introduce a Scot- 
tish population in place of an Irish one. In 1609, the forfeited lands were 
surveyed by commissioners, many grants were made to undertakers and servi- 
tors, and all things prepared for planting Ulster with another race, professing 
another religion. The next year the settlers began to arrive. Some came from 
England, but most from Scotland. The English settled in the southern part of 
the province, while the Scots occupied the north and centre. With their lands 
at a nominal rent, their clothing and their tools, manufactured by themselves, 
with linen and woolen cloth, cattle and horses, to sell, the colonists began to 
thrive. The success of the settlers induced many of their friends from Scot- 
land to follow. Then came James's great scheme of colonization in 1610, which 
threw open the other six counties for English and Scottish settlers. 

Although more than three-fourths of the seventeenth century settlers in 
Ulster were Presbyterians, an effort was soon to be made to include them in 
the Episcopal establishment. After James came to the throne in 1603 he 
became as much a persecutor of the Puritans in the South as he had been of 
the Presbyterians in the North. 

Three events of greater or less relative importance, characterize the reign 
of King James. The first of these was a new translation of the Bible into 
English. The second event for which the reign of James will be forever mem- 
orable was his confiscation of the estates of the banished Catholic earls of 
Ulster, the eviction of the native Irish from these estates, and their subsequent 
plantation and acquisition by Scottish and English "undertakers" in accord- 
ance with the king's plans. The third event was James's persecution of the 
Independents in Ireland, and the oppression of the Presbyterians in Scotland. 
As a result of these persecutions, John Robinson's Pilgrim followers were 
compelled to seek a refuge in Holland, and later in America, where they 
foimded the Puritan Commonwealth; while many of the bravest and most in- 
dependent spirits in Scotland crossed over to the new settlements in Ulster, 
where they likewise helped to build up democratic communities and families 
that later added such a large and influential element to the Anti-Jacobite popu- 
lation of America. 

Any one, though the nearest relative, who should shelter, aid, or in any way 
minister to the wants of those denoimced, was held liable to the same penalty 
as the person assisted. All landholders were required to give bond that their 
families and dependants should abstain from attending an}' conventicle. To 
enforce these wicked laws torture was freely used to extort evidence or con-

fession ; families were reduced to ruin by exorbitant fines ; the prisons -.j-e filled 
with victims of oppression ; multituiles were banished and sold a^i^^, 
women and even children were tortured or murdered for refusing to .„ 
oath they could not understand ; soldiers were quartered upon the defeuv, 
inhabitants and allowed free license; men were hunted like wild beasts, ttx 
shot or gibbeted along the highways. 

Those who suffered from these oppressions, both pastors and people, accorc 
inglj' began to look elsewhere for a place of refuge. The Presbyterians o. 
the South emigrated in large numbers to Holland and America. Those of th 
North went principally to Ireland, although the laws there against noncoi 
formity were annoying, and the local authorities in some places inclined ti 
press them. King James died in 1625 and was succeeded by his son Charles, a 
monarch as faithless, tyrannical, and selfish as his father, but one of a less 
cowardly spirit. In the Establi.shed Church of England he found a willing 
supporter, and used it to carry out his designs. 

At this period, high rents in Scotland were driving the people to Ulster 
at the rate of four thousand a year, just as the same cause, a century later, 
drove them from Ulster to America. The wave of colonization moved west- 
wards from Antrim and Down, and southwards from Derry. Had this move- 
ment continued, the loyal population would soon have been so numerous as to 
fear no rebellion of the natives. But Presbyterians, being then firmly attached 
to their faith, were not inclined to settle in a country where they would be 
deprived of Gospel ordinances. The persecution in Ireland soon checked im- 
migration from Scotland. 

Meanwhile, in Scotland the attempt of the king to impose the liturgy on the 
people met with most determined opposition. He had many loj-al supporters 
in all parts of Scotland, but the storm of popiilar indignation swept everj'thing 
before it. The king's opponents banded themselves together by the national 
covenant [see page 24] and re-established Presbyterianism. The king at- 
tempted to maintain his claim by the sword, but was unsuccessful, and obliged 
to ratify in parliament all that had been done by his opponents. 

The Irish Presbyterians, strongly opposed to the forms of prelacy, sym- 
pathized with their brethren in Scotland; and even the clergy of the Estab- 
lished Chuch failed to carry out the provisions of the canons they had signed. 

Charles having failed in his plans of raising money to carry on the war 
with the Scots, summoned another English Parliament, which met on the 3d 
of November, 1640, and is known as the Long Parliament. The Irish Presby- 
terians, through Sir John Clotworthy of Antrim, petitioned this Parliament 
for redress of their many grievances. They recounted the persecutions they 
had endured; they complained that their "learned and conscionable" minis- 
ters had been banished, and the care of their souls committed to illiterate hire- 
lings, who received only five or ten pounds a year ; that the rectors through 
connivance of their bishops were non-resident, and the people perished from 
want of spiritual food; and that all this time masses were publicly celebrated 
"to the great grief of God's people, and increase of idolatry and superstition." 
They prayed Parliament to redress their grievances and especially to restore 
their banished ministers. 

The government of Ireland was now committed to Sir John Persons and Sir

John P .>orlase, both Puritans. Under their guidance, the Parliament abolished 
the court of High Commission, and religious liberty was practically re-estab- 
list led. The exiled Presbyterians began to return, until shortly after 1640 
■■ Here were thirty regular congregations in Ulster, and it seemed as if peace 
ff and prosperity were about to reign in Ireland. 

Certain descendants of the northern chieftains whose estates had been con- 
fiscated at the beginning of the century, and others who had themselves gone 
away when very j'oung, lived at the courts of Rome and Madrid. These exiles, 
thinking the English were fully occupied with their own disputes, formed a 
plan with friends in Ireland for expelling the settlers, and overthrowing 
Protestantism in the country. When this plot was almost ripe for execution, 
Charles, thinking he had gained Scotland by lately made concessions, opened 
a correspondence with some Irish Roman Catholic leaders. He promised them 
many civil and religious advantages, including a legal establishment of the 
Roman Catholic faith in Ireland, if they would take up arms in his behalf, and 
disarm all Irish Protestants except the Ulster Scots, whom the king imagined 
he could unite with their kinsmen in Scotland. But the leaders of the old 
Irish, hearing of this design, determined to begin the rebellion at once, to an- 
ticipate the Anglo-Norman families who were gained by Charles, and to rob 
and murder for their own advantage rather than for the advantage of the 
king. At first, the rebels acted with comparative moderation. They con- 
tented themselves with robbing the Protestants, stripping them naked, and 
sending them oft" defenceless. But they soon abandoned this moderation, and 
aimed at murdering the entire native Protestant population. Neither woman 
nor infant was spared. The brains of the children were dashed out before the 
eyes of their mothers, some were thrown into pots of boiling water, and some 
were given to the pigs that they might be eaten. A Protestant minister was 
crucified. Many had their hands cut off or their eyes put out before their lives 
were taken. Others were promised protection on condition of their becoming 
the executioners of their own nearest and dearest relations; but if they ac- 
cepted these terms, they themselves were afterwards murdered. Many were 
promised their lives on condition of conforming the popery, but any who re- 
canted were told that, being now in the true Church, they must be killed at 
once lest they might afterwards fall from faith. Various calculations have 
been made of the number who perished, and it probably reached more than ten 
thousand. At first, the king's orders were obeyed and the Scots suffered no 
injury. Many of them succeeded in escaping, but some perished by being too 
confident. 

Oliver Cromwell, having rendered the Parliament supreme in England, 
and the independents supreme in Parliament, went to Ireland to act as lord 
lieutenant. On the 15th of August, 1649, he landed at Dublin. On the 3d of 
September he invested Drogheda, which had been garrisoned by the best of 
Ormond's soldiers, most of whom were English. A .summons to surrender 
being rejected, Cromwell took the town by storm on the 11th, and put the 
garrison with many defenseless inhabitants to the sword. At Wexford he 
exercised the same severity. Other towns opened their gates when summoned. 
Venables. sent north to co-operate with Coote, met him at Belfast, which was 
taken on September 30th. On the 6th of December these generals gained a 



PRESBYTERIAN PRESECUTION. 21 

great victory over Lord Montgomery, not far from Lisburn. Heber M'Mahon, 
bishop of Clogher, at the head of the Irish, was defeated near Letterkenny. 
The long contest was over. Ireland, for the first time in her history, was com- 
pletely subdued. 

During all this time the Irish Presbj^terians were closely watched lest they 
might espouse the cause of Charles. By a council of war, an act of banishment 
was pronounced against their ministers. ^lany of them fled from the eountry, 
and others, in the dress of farmers, travelled through their parishes and 
preached in private houses, or in the fields, at the risk of imprisonment. The 
"engagement" was now pressed on the occupants of public offices, and heavy 
penalties inflicted on those who refused to swear. 

But after Charles left the kingdom, the government of Ireland seemed 
less inclined to persecute Presbyterians. During the period of Episcopal as- 
cendancy, the practice was to press with full force against Presbyterians, the 
penal laws seldom enforced against Catholics. 

Oliver Cromwell died on the 3d of September, 1658, and his son Richard 
was proclaimed his successor. Henry Cromwell was promoted to be lord lieu- 
tenant of Ireland, and continued to rule the country with wisdom and vigor. 
Life and property had been rendered safe. Liberty of conscience for almost 
all classes of Protestants had been established. JSIany settlers from England and 
Scotland had been "planted" in the Celtic districts of the South and West. 
In Ulster, marshes had been drained, woods cut down, and farmhouses built. 
Presbyterianism made rapid progress. 

Charles II. at the time of his father's death, was a friendless fugitive. The 
Scotch ofi'ered to receive him as their king, on condition that he should pledge 
himself by oath to regard and preserve their Presbji:erian form of Church 
government. To this he assented. When he arrived in the kingdom he sub- 
scribed the covenant ; and again at his coronation, under circumstances of 
much more than usual solemnity, he swore to preserve it inviolate. The Scotch, 
accordingly, armed in his defence ; but, divided among themselves, and led by 
a general unfit to cope with Cromwell, they were soon defeated and Charles 
was again driven to the Continent. When he returned in 1660, he voluntarily 
renewed his promise to the Scotch, by whom his restoration had been greatly 
promoted, not to interfere with the liberty of their Church. No sooner, how- 
ever, was he firmly seated on his throne than all these oaths and promises were 
forgotten. Presbyterianism was at once abolished and Episcopacy established ; 
not such as it was under James I, when bishops were little more than standing 
moderators of the Presbyterians, but invested, by the arbitrary mandate of 
the king, with the fulness of prelatical power. An act was passed making it 
penal even to speak publicly or privately against the king's supremacy, or the 
government of the Church by archbishops and bishops. A court of high com- 
mission, of which all the prelates were members, was erected and armed with 
inquisitorial powers. JIultitudes of learned and pious ministers were ejected 
from their parishes, and ignorant, ungodly men, for the most part, introduced 
in their stead. Yet the people were forced under severe penalties, to attend 
the ministrations of these unworthy men. All ejected ministers were pro- 
hibited preaching or praying except in their o^vn families; and preaching or 
praying in the fields was made punishable by death. 



22 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

The last of the seventeenth century probably saw the last of the emigration 
of Scots into Ulster; while for years that were to follow, the Scots were to 
leave Ulster in thousands for America. For some time after the Revolution, a 
steady stream of Scotch Presbyterians had poured into the country attracted 
by the cheapness of the farms and by the new opening for trade. In the end of 
the seventeenth century the state of England was not a prosperous one, and 
her woolen manufacturers imagined the competition from Ireland was injur- 
ing them. The next year the Government passed an Act through the Irish 
Parliament, forbidding any exportation of Irish woolens from the country. It 
was afterwards followed by Acts forbidding the Irish to export their wool to 
any country save England — the English manufacturers desiring to get the 
wool of their sister kingdom at their own price. 

There are two outstanding facts in the history of Ulster besides the rise of 
the linen manufacture — the steady emigration, and the rise of the Secession 
Church. The latter is strong proof of the kinship to Scotland, the former is, 
perhaps even a stronger proof of the blood which was in her sons, for they 
left Ulster, as their forefathers had come to it, in search of a more kindly home 
across the seas. The emigration from Ulster is one of the most striking feat- 
ures of Irish history, and one which had a most marked effect on the vital force 
of the United States of America, which drew so much of its best blood from the 
Presbji:erians of the north of Ireland. There was nothing to induce the active- 
minded men of the North to remain in Ireland, and thej' left in crowds, going 
away with wives and children, never to return. In 1718, there is mention of 
"both ministers and people going off." In 1728, it is stated that "above 4,200 
men, women, and children have been shipped off hence for the West Indies, 
within three years." In consequence of the famine of 1740, it is stated that 
for "several years afterwards, twelve thousand emigrants annually left Ulster 
for the American plantations;" while from 1771 to 1773, "the whole emigra- 
tion from Ulster is estimated at thirty thousand, of whom ten thousand were 
weavers." Thus was Ulster drained of the young, the enterprising, and the 
most energetic and desirable classes of its population. They left the land 
which had been saved to England by the swords of their fathers, and crossed 
the sea to escape from the galling tyranny of the bishops whom Ireland had 
made rulers of that land. They came to a new and a better land, and here 
they founded their homes, built their churches, established their communities, 
and again set up their religion. 

Before the close of the seventeenth century, there were at least twelve 
Presbyterian churches established in America, the members of which were, to a 
large extent, of Scottish or Scotch-Irish birth or descent. Five of these 
churches were in ^Maryland, two in Virginia, two in Delaware, one in Penn- 
sylvania, one in New Jersej', and one in South Carolina. During the first two 
decades of the eighteenth century additional Presbyterian churches were 
organized in the American colonies by emigrants from Scotland and Ulster. 

The causes which led to the eighteenth-century emigration from Ulster to 
America have already been pointed out, and may be summarized as follows : 

1. Religious persecution by the Episcopal authorities, of a nature most 
galling and outrageous; one incident being the loss of the rights of citizen- 
ship. 



PRESBYTERIAN PERSECUTION. 23 

2. A system of unjust and unwise landlordism, which served to discourage 
thrift and enterprise. 

3. Prohibitory discrimination against the trade and manufactures of Ulster 
in favor of those of England. 

4. The enforced payment of tithes to the Epi.scopal clergy, to sustain a 
theocracy which the Presbj'terians believed to be contrary to the laws of God, 
and knew to be destructive to their own rights and liberties. 

The annals of the actual emigration from Ulster to America are very 
meagre and imperfect. Few records have been preserved of the departure of 
vessels from ports in Scotland or Ireland prior to the present century, and 
such incomplete lists of passengers as have come down to us owe their preser- 
vation rather to accident than to design. 

While the settlements of the Scotch-Irish in New England, Virginia, and 
the Carolinas were numerous, and represented a population of many thousand 
families, the great majority of the Ulster emigrants to America first landed 
on the Delaware shore. Most of the passenger ships sailing from Ireland 
during the eighteenth century were bound for ports in the Quaker colony. 
Pennsylvania thus became the centre of the Presbj'terian settlements in the 
New World, and from the province, after 1735, a continuous stream of emigra- 
tion flowed to the South and West. 

The emigrants to Pennsylvania usually landed at one of the three ports, 
Lewes, Newcastle (both in Delaware then a part of Pennsylvania), or Phila- 
delphia. Presbyterian congregations were gathered in all of these towns 
before 1698. During the first decade of the eighteenth century the Scotch- 
Irish made settlements along White Clay, Red Clay, and Brandywine creeks 
in Newcastle county, Delaware, and at the head of Elk creek on both sides 
of the Pennsylvania-ilaryland boundary, at its intersection with the Delaware 
line. The church at the head of Christiana creek was organized before 1708. 
Two years later the congregation of Drawyers and Pencader, in Delaware, 
and Bensalem, in Pennsylvania, were gathered ; and the year 1714 brought into 
existence six more Presb}i;erian churches: Norriton and Abington, in what is 
now Montgomery county, and Great Valley, in Chester County, all in Pennsyl- 
vania; and Cedar Creek, Dover, and Murderkill, in Delaware. The congre- 
gations of these churches were composed of Scottish, Dutch, and Welsh set- 
tlers. Before 1720 the Scotch-Irish had extended their settlements westward 
to the mouth of the Susquehanna, and were sufficiently numerous to form three 
new congregations. 

Of the total white population in America at the outbreak of the Revolution, 
there is abundant evidence to show that at least one-third was not of English 
descent or sympathies at all, but consisted of a variety of nationalities, includ- 
ing the Germans, French, Hollanders, Swedes, and others. But the settle- 
ments of all these different nationalities taken together did not begin to equal 
in number or importance those of the Scots of North Britain and North Ire- 
land, a composite race, even at that time having in the organic makeup of 
each individual a combination of the several racial elements which were almost 
identical with those now forming the present collective population of America, 
and from which the American of the future is gradually being evolved. 

Driven from their adopted home in the North of Ireland by English perse- 



24 GKEENLEE GENEALOGY. 

cution, there was burned into their very souls the bitter recollection of English 
ingratitude and English broken faith. They were un-English in their origin, 
and they came to America hating England, her church, and her form of gov- 
ernment with the intensest hatred, ilingled with the descendants of many 
other races, they nevertheless formed the kernel of the distinctively and in- 
tensely American stock who were the pioneers of our people in their march 
westward, the vanguard of the army of fighting settlers, who with axe and 
rifle won their way from the AUeghanies to the Rio Grande and the Pacific. 
That these Irish Presbyterians were a bold and hardy race is proved by their 
at once pushing past the settled regions, and plunging into the wilderness as 
leaders of the white advance. But indeed, they were well fitted to be Ameri- 
cans from the very start ; they were kinsfolk of the Covenanters ; they deemed 
it a religious duty to interpret their own Bible, and held for divine right the 
election of their own clergy. For generations their whole ecclesiastic and 
scholastic systems had been fundamentally democratic. 

The term "Scotch-Irish" is peculiarly American. The word seems to have 
come into general use since the Revolution, having been first taken as a race- 
name by many individuals of a very large class of people in the United States, 
descendants of emigrants of Scottish blood from the North of Ireland. The 
name was not used by the first of these emigrants, neither was it generally 
applied to them by the people whom they met there. They usually called 
themselves "Scotch" just as the descendants of their former neighbors in 
Ireland do today; and as do some of their own descendants in this country, 
who seemingly are averse to acknowledging any connection with Ireland. The 
application "Scotch-Irish" is not, as many people suppose, an indication of 
Hiberno-Scottish descent; although it could be properly so used in many 
cases. It was first appropriated as a distinctive race-name by, and is now 
generally applied to, the descendants in America of the early Scotch Presby- 
terian emigrants from Ireland. ["The Scotch-Irish, or the Scot in North 
Britain, North Ireland, and North America." By C. A. Hanna.] 

THE NATIONAL CO\TENANT. 

The National Covenant was a bond of union or agreement, drawn up at 
Edinburgh in 1638, by the leading Presbyterian ministers, and subscribed by 
vast numbers of persons of all ranks of life. It embodied the confession of 
faith of 1580 and 1581, subscribed by James VI in his youth, and again recog- 
nized in 1590 and 1596 ; and was binding on all who signed it to spare nothing 
which might save their religion. The subscribing of the national covenant 
began on the 28th of February, 1638 in the Grej'friars' church and church- 
yard at Edinburgh. Numerous copies were also circulated through the country 
for signature — a circumstance which accounts for many copies being still 
extant. "In the library of the facility of advocates at Edinburgh are pre- 
served five parchment copies with the original signatures of Rothes, Montrose, 
Loudon, and many others of the nobility, gentry, commissioners of counties 
and burghs, and ministers, though only one of these five copies is apparently 
connected with the first signing, and the other four, which are dated 1639, 
were subscribed after the ratification of the General assembly." [Davidson's 
Historical Sketch Illustrative of the National Confession of Faith, Edinburgh, 



PRESBYTERIAN PERSECUTION. 25 

1849, to which we refer for a variety of details.] The gene?:al assembly, which 
met at Glasglow, November 21, 1638, ratified the national covenant and the 
confession of faith which it embraced, and deposed the whole of the hierarchy 
which had been established by Charles I. The national covenant was sub- 
sequently ratified by the 5th act of the second parliament of Charles I, held 
at Edinburgh June 11, 1640, and subscribed by Charles II at Spey, June 23, 
1G50, and Seoou, January 1. ItJol. The docunu'nt will bo found in tlu' vi)luiiie 
which comprehends the Westminster Confession of Faith, in use by the church 
of Scotland. Those who subscribe the national covenant, promise to "continue 
in obedience of the doctrine and discipline of this kirk." They also give 
assent to various acts of parliament in the reign of James VI, which besides 
repudiating the jurisdiction of the pope, and all the ceremonial observances 
and errors of the Romish church, ordain "all sayers, wilful hearers, and con- 
cealers of the mass, the maintainers and resetters of the priests, Jesuits, traf- 
ficking Papists, to be punished without any exception or restriction." 

THE SOLEMN LEAGUE AND COVENANT. 

The Solemn League and Covenant was a document of date four to five 3'ear8 
later than the National Covenant, since the signing of which, Charles I had 
broken with the English parliament, set up his standard at Nottingham 
(August, 1642), and from his various successes it seemed as if he might be 
able finally to reinstate Episcopacy in Scotland. With some alarm on this 
ground, the Scotch willingly received overtures from commissioners deputed 
from the English parliament. Hopes were held out to the Scottish nation 
that, in event of success against the king, the Presbyterian model should super- 
cede the Episcopalian both in England and Ireland. Approving of a measure 
of this kind, the Scottish estates entered into what was called a solemn league 
and covenant with the English parliament. One of the provisions of the bond 
of agreement was, that the Scotch should send an army into England against 
the king, which they did in January, 1644. 

The solemn league and covenant was subscribed by many of all ranks in 
Scotland and England, including the assembly of divines at "Westminster, 
was ratified by the general assembly at Edinburgh, August 17, 1643, and the 
Scottish parliament, July 15, 1644; and subscribed by Charles H at Spey, 
1650, and Scoon, 1651. Like the national covenant, it has, till the present 
day, a place in the volume which comprehends the Westminster Confession of 
Faith of the church of Scotland. 

While the national covenant refers to the observance of the Presbyterian 
polity within Scotland alone, the solemn league and covenant is much more 
comprehensive. Those who subscribe it, setting out with a profession of at- 
tachment to the church of Scotland, are to endeavor to bring about a uniform- 
ity in religion and church-discipline in the three kingdoms; and further "That 
we shall in like manner, without respect of persons, endeavor the extirpation 
of popery, prelacy (that is church-government by archbishops, bishops, their 
chancellors, and commissaries, deans, deans and chapters, archdeacons, and all 
other ecclesiastical officers depending on that hierarchy), superstitition, heresy, 
schism, profaneness and whatsoever shall be found to be contrary to sound 
doctrine and the power of godliness, lest we partake of other men's sins, and 



26 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

thereby be in danger to receive of their plagues ; and that the Lord may be one, 
and his name one, in the three kingdoms." 

Such were the famous covenants, at one time enforced by civil penalties, 
and for which their adherents, under the name of covenanters, fought and 
suffered in Scotland, between the restoration and the revolution, maintaining 
to the last that both covenants, notwithstanding certain recissory acts of parlia- 
ment, were still binding on the whole nation. At the revolution the two cove- 
nants were set aside, and carmot be said to have now any practical effect in 
any part of the United Kingdom. As above stated, they have a place in the 
volume which comprehends the Westminster Confession of faith, but for what 
reason it is difficult to say ; for the church of Scotland does not make adherence 
to them obligatory on either clerical or lay members. Certain Scotch and 
Irish dissenters, however, still profess attachment to the covenants, and on 
particular occasions renew their subscription of them. They are called Camer- 
onians or Reformed Presbyterians. The obligations undertaken by the sover- 
eign, and the modern acts of parliament abolishing religious tests on taking 
civil office, and admitting Roman Catholics, Non-conformists, and Jews to 
Parliament, not to speak of public opinion, are totally at variance with the 
covenants. It is customary in popular lectures on the Covenanters to overlook 
the fact, in compassion for their sufferings, that they contended for what is 
now quite adverse to the principles of religious toleration. Yet, in so far as 
the manful struggle in which they were concerned helped to accelerate the 
revolution, the history of the Covenanters must ever be associated with that 
of civil and religious liberty. 



THE FIRST GREENLEES IN AMERICA. 

Tradition locates the Greenlees in England as early as the reign of Alfred 
the Great [871]. Their names appear on the records as far back as the reign 
of Edward IV [1461]. Later vre find Greenlees settled around and about 
the parishes of Lochwinnoch*, Beith, and neighborhood, in tlie time known as 
the twenty years of the killing time in Scotland. The Greenlees, like many 
other families, fled into Argylshire, thence to Ireland. Again, religious perse- 
cution was the prime cause which led them to leave the north of Ireland and 
emigrate to America. 

MICHAEL GREENLEE of Kent County, Delaware was born "about 1700" 
and came to this country from Ireland when he was "about 14 years old." 
As the lists of passengers from Ireland about that time were very incomplete 
and many records have been destroyed, we have been unable to learn anything 
definite regarding his emigration. It is probable that he came with his father 
and other members of the family. He may have emigrated in 1718 when a 
number left Ireland "both ministers and people going ofif." A Presbyterian 
church had been established in ^Murderkill. Delaware in 1714. The earliest 
record we have of Michael Greenlee is February 12, 1754 when he bought land 
in "ye forrest of murtherkill Hundred" Kent County, Delaware. 

JOHN GREENLEE, a brother of ^Michael, also settled in Delaware and had 
a son, Robert, born in Delaware in 1745. This is possibly the John Greenlee 
[see Unclassified, No. 271] who was living in Kent County, Delaware in 1747 
and in that year bought land in the "forrest of Murther Creek Hundred," 
and died before May 27, 1755, intestate, his widow, Priscilla, being appointed 
administratrix. The settlement of this estate would undoubtedly have fur- 
nished additional data but could not be found as many of the early Delaware 
records have been destroyed. 

ARCHIBALD GREENLEE of Washington County, Pennsylvania was born 
in Scotland about 1755 and settled in Washington County, Pennsylvania before 
1780. We have been unable to ascertain how long he remained there. His 
children emigrated to Ohio. 

EDWARD GREENLEE came from Ireland after 1771 and settled in Mason 
County, Virginia [now West Virginia]. He was probably a brother of William 
of West Virginia. 

JAMES GREENLEE of Rockbridge County, Virginia, bom in 1707, came 



*I>oohwinncch is a parish about Ave miles by four, the most southerly of Renfrewshire 
and abutting on the first parish of Ayrshire, called Belth. It lie* eight miles from the 
village of Largs, twenty-flve miles from the mainland of Argyll ' and eleven miles from 
Campbelltown. It is eleveu miles across to Ireland.

28 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

from the north of Ireland about 1727, landed in Delaware and soon after went 
to Carlisle, Pennsylvania where he married. In 1737 he settled in Rockbridge 
County, Virginia. 

JAilES GREENLEE of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania was born in 
1718 in the north of Ireland. The date of his emigration is not known but his 
name appears as early as 1738 on the tax list of Hanover Township, Lancaster 
County, Pennsylvania where he spent the remainder of his days. 

JAMES GREENLEE of Tennessee came from Ireland, spent some time in 
Pennsylvania, then settled on the Potomac River in Virginia. He was living 
in North Carolina in 1775. His descendants settled in Tennessee. 

ROBERT GREENLEE of Pennsylvania was probably born in Scotland. 
His father came from Scotland in an early day and settled in Allegheny 
County, Pennsylvania. The earliest definite place record we have of Robert is 
at Clifton, Allegheny County, near which place his granddaughter was born in 
1797. 

WILLIAM GREENLEE of West Virginia was probably a brother of 
Edward of West Virginia. He came from Ireland in 1766 and settled at 
Botetourt County, Virginia. He probably removed to Mason County, Virginia 
(now West Virginia) with his sons John and Edward between 1790 and 1801. 

Of these early Greenlees the only one we have been enabled to connect 
with Michael, is John of Kent County, Delaware. After a careful study of the 
subject, however, we are convinced that all the Greenlees above mentioned 
were closely related and that all the branches, both in this and foreign coun- 
tries, sprang from the same parent stock. 

The hardships endured by pioneers to the New World in making and 
guarding their homes, coupled with lack of facilities, gave them little oppor- 
tunity for making and preserving family records. In many of the states no 
system of recording births, deaths and marriages was installed until a com- 
paratively recent date. In England, Ireland and Scotland, where we expected 
to find a perfect system of records, it is almost impossible to trace many, now 
prominent, families. The ravages of time and the numerous wars in those 
countries are responsible in a measure for the destruction of many valuable 
records. 

The different ways of spelling the name can not be considered as evidence 
that they were not of the same stock as we find many instances in old wills, 
deeds and other records where the name is speUed several ways in the same 
document. This will be found both in England and America and is partly 
attributed to a system of phonetic spelling which was in vogue.

MICHAEL GREENLEE purchased land in Kent County, Delaware as 
early as 1754; but the following, related by Edmund Greenlee, as told him by 
his father, shows that he must have settled in Delaware many years before. 

"My Grandfather Greenlee came from Ireland at the age of about 14 years, 
had no Irish brogue on his tongue, settled in Delaware near the Maryland 
Line; his first wife's name unknown; had children by her; David Greenlee one 
of the sons moved to Georgia when quite young. He (David) had the small 
pox while at home and became very much reduced in flesh; on recovery 
strength came before he gained flesh, and my father said he was the smartest 
person to walk he ever saw. Another son was William Greenlee ; do not know 
where he lived, but the last letter received from him stated that he was going 
to move up the Red River. I do not remember hearing the age at which 
Grandfather married his first wife, but at the time of his second marriage he 
was 60 j'ears of age. I do not know his second wife's given name or maiden 
name but she was 19 j-ears of age when they were married. Grandfather at 
60 years of age was very strong and active ; is said to have taken a hog after 
it had been killed weighing 200 lbs. by the bristles and lifted it from the 
ground with one hand, and could jump up and strike his feet together twice

and then, in company with his family and a small colony of settlers, came 
up the Allegheny River and French Creek on a flat-bottom boat or raft, which 
was pushed up the stream with setting poles, to Meadville, where there was a 
small settlement. He brought with him eighteen barrels of flour, two barrels 
of side pork, a lot of flax, one and one-half bushels of salt, one yoke of oxen, 
one cow, two two-year-old heifers, one mare, one large black walnut chest and 
other household goods. There was nothing but an Indian trail through the 
woods from Pittsburg to Meadville at that time, and the only stopping place 
in the whole distance was where James and Philip Dunn had settled. Here 
they stopped for a rest. During their trip up the river it rained so that their 
beds were getting wet, and he put boards on barrels for covering for his wife 
and little son, Robert. On this journey the live stock was driven to the new 
home along this primitive trail through the forest, and on this trip Mr. Green- 
lee injured his back pushing the boat, from the effect of which he never recov- 
ered. He remained one year on French Creek Flats, near Meadville, where he 
raised a patch of corn. When the crop was ready to harvest, being unable to 
walk, he took a chain and rode one of the oxen into the field, where he hitched 
the chain around a shock of com and drew it to a shed, thus saving his corn, 
while his neighbors left theirs on the field and it was swept down the creek in 
a freshet and was lost. The spring following, in March, 1797, he went on 
horseback to Venango Township, now Cussawago Township, and secured four 
hundred acres of land and built a small log cabin. When he went to look 
for the land, a man had agreed to come out from Meadville and bring him a 
gun and fire tools, but disappointed him, and the consequence was that he was 
obliged to stay in the woods all night with his horse and dog, without fire or 
gun, there being four inches of snow on the ground. He made his bed beside 
a fallen tree, against which he stood pieces of bark for covering. His dog 
barked continually, thus keeping the wild animals away; otherwise it seemed 
to him as though he must have been killed by them, as all through the long, 
weary night these denizens of the forest gave distinct evidence of their 
presence. 

In order to get supplies for their families, the men had to go through the 
woods on horseback along an Indian trail to Pittsburg. During his absence on 
one of these trips, which took several days, Mr. Greenlee 's wife was very much 
annoyed by wolves, bears and panthers, which came alarmingly near. She 
took lighted pine torches and threw them at the animals, which were afraid 
of fire, thus keeping them away. A blanket was used to cover the entrance 
to the little cabin and served in lieu of a door. 

That fall Mr. Greenlee hired the underbrush dug out and the large trees 
girdled, for which service he paid five dollars, and the ground was prepared 
for seed in as effective a way as possible. He bought one bushel of seed 
wheat, costing four dollars, and sowed it on this acre of ground, which pro- 
duced thirty bushels. There was a brush fence around this acre, somewhat 
protecting it from wild animals, but nevertheless it was necessary to guard it 
both day and night until the crop was harvested. That one bushel was all the 
wheat he ever bought for the use of his family. Being an invalid, as stated 
above, he was unable to personally do much farm work, so he took up the 
manufacture of reeds for weaving, and other similar work. He always kept 



40 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

a yoke of oxen, and changed ■work with his neighbors by letting them use his 
ox team, and thus managed to get his heavy farm work done — work his boys 
were unable to do because of their youth. It is said of him that he never gave 
a note in his life and never had a lawsuit. 

A notable characteristic of the Greenlee family has been equability of 
temperament. Each successive generation has shown the same mildness of dis- 
position, the same gentle and kindly nature, and the deepest sympathy and 
regard for all men. Sterling integrity of character, strong mentality and ex- 
cellent business ability have also been tj"pified in the various representatives 
of the name. The family has ever stood for the highest order of citizenship, 
and has rendered strong allegiance to religious, educational and all other good 
work. 

Mr. Greenlee was a First-day Baptist and his wife a Seventh-day Baptist, 
and accordingly they kept both days holy. Their home was always open to 
the itinerant clergymen of both denominations, and was to these noble pioneer 
workers in the Master's vineyard a home indeed. Mrs. Greenlee, in the mean- 
time lost her health and did most of her work in bed, such as sewing, knitting, 
mending, and sometimes spinning, the last work being accomplished by having 
one of the children turn the wheel for her. She was also quite a poet. The 
following acrostic is one of her compositions : 

Joyless and flat all things will prove 
Except the Savior and his love 
Eemember he is a friend indeed 
Escape therefore to him with speed, 
ilay I now in my youthful prime 
In virtue "s ways spend all my time 
And then I shall most happy be 
Henceforward to Eternity. 

Do thou dear Lord my footsteps guide 
L'nto thy courts and near thy side 
Nor from thee let me ere depart 
Help me to give to thee my heart. 
And then thy Holy name I'll praise 
Mount up and sing to endless days. 

may the youth thats in this place 
Be early blest with Gospel Grace, 
And sound aloud Emanuel's praise 
Through the remainder of their days. 
May great King Shilohs name be blest 
And in him aU his people rest 
And to him people gathered be 
From land to land and sea to sea. 

Earth shall not my chief thoughts employ 
Let Heaven fill my thoughts with joy

And there with him I long to meet 
Before his throne and at his feet 
Enlarge my heart Lord I pray 
To praise thy Holy name alway 
Henceforward unto heavenly day. 

Doth not my soul with pleasure bound 
And joy to hear the gospel sound 
Nothing so much delights my heart

Enjoy I would the light Divine 
Lord Jesus wilt thou on me shine. 

Joyful let me always attend 
On my dear Lord and only friend. 
His name forever I would praise 
Now and through Everlasting Days. 

Joy is a fruit that will not grow 
Amongst the son of Sin and woe 
May I from them depart away 
Employ my time to read and pray 
So shall I run the heavenly way. 

On Earth there is nothing else I see 

That I wo^^ld for my own possess 

For Lord they have no power to bless

And hear their conversation sweet 

When their dear hearts are moved aright 
'Tis then in them I take delight 
Dear Lord thou knowest I long to be 
Daily and hourly more like thee 
Till I from Earth shall soar away 
To dwell with my Dear Lord for ay. 

Bear up my Soul through all my woes 
In thy Dear Lord thou mayest repose

Xceed the prayers that I may speak 
Pity my poor and helpless state 
Encourage me on Thee to wait. 
Rise for my help, my foes confound 
I long to see thy grace abound 
Enter with all Thy glorious train 
No more let sin and Satan reign 
Conquer my Foes so shall I sing 
Eternal Praises to my King. 

May Dear Lucinda Greenlee live 
And to King Jesus praises give 
May she now in her youthful prime 
Improve well the accepted time. 
And so let all her sisters Dear 
Improve well every future year 
That they may never have to say 
I've Lost the Blessed Gospel Day. 

May they in youth Remember well 
That Christ alone can save from hell 
And may they fly to him with speed 
For sure He is a friend indeed.

ROBERT GREENLEE at the age of twelve years began to plow and do the 
heavy work on the farm, his father being in very feeble health, and from that 
time until his marriage was the main support of the family. His educational 
advantages were very meagre, consisting of a few months at a district school. 
On reaching his eighteenth year he expected to attend school ; but the call came 
for volunteers and he enlisted in the service of his country in the war of 1812. 
He took his knapsack on his back, and his trusty rifle, and went as far as Water- 
ford the first day. He arrived in Erie the following day, and there went into 
camp under Captain Mason, and remained there about four months. During 
his stay there, the British made an attempt to land, crossing on the ice. The 
small garrison resorted to strategy. They marched out from behind the bluff 
in full view of the enemy, then around behind the bluff, then out again, thus

giving the impression that a large force of men was stationed there, and the 
enemy fell back without making a landing. 

After his marriage he settled on a farm near Mosiertown, Crawford County, 
Pennsylvania, where he lived until February, 1825, when he put his household 
effects and his family on an ox-sled and went by a path through the woods about 
eight or nine miles westward. Here he had one hundred and sixty acres of land 
and had spent part of the previous summer in raising produce and preparing a 
home for his family. He cleared a few acres of land and built a log house near 
an excellent spring of water. The house was not finished when he moved his 
family in, and a blanket was himg up to serve as a door. They had one neigh- 
bor, Mr. Spieer. The next morning after their arrival Mr. Greenlee went out 
to care for his stock. Mrs. Greenlee hearing footsteps supposed he was re- 
turning and going to the door pushed the blanket aside and passed out her 
water pail, saying, "Here, Robert, just get a pail of water before you come in." 
Instead of Robert, it was Mr. Spieer who had come for a neighborly call. He 
took the pail without a word and filled it, then presented himself again at the 
door much to her astonishment and his amusement. 

He soon after built another room with doors and windows. The usual log 
houses of those days consisted of one room and the loft, which was reached by 
means of a ladder. Greased paper was used for windows. His house was a 
double one with puncheon floors, and a four-paned glass window admitted light 
to the best room. The furniture consisted of six "Windsor" chairs, a full leaf 
table and a stand. In the best room was a bed with tester and valance of blue 
and white checked linen of Mrs. Greenlee's own spinning and weaving. The 
wide fireplace with stick and mud chimney afforded abundant ventilation. The 
tops of the trees could be seen up through the chimney. A large "back log" 
often dra^vn in at the door by a horse and placed in position by a hand spike, 
and a "fore stick" held in place by andirons, with the intervening space filled 
with logs, was the approved method of building a huge fire, which crackled and 
roared, filling the room with its genial warmth and ruddy glow. In 1836 he 
built a frame house, which still stands. To this humble home, where dwelt 
peace and love, were brought religious and agricultural papers, books, pictures 
and musical instruments. Here was established the family altar, from which 
ascended the daily praj'ers of loving and trustful hearts, the mother's beautiful 
soprano voice blending in the singing. 

Mr. Greenlee was a kind, conscientious man ; and it is said that he was never 
known to speak a harsh word even to a dumb animal. That he was enterpris- 
ing and progressive was attested by his well-tilled fields, clean barns and yard, 
large orchard, fine fruit, and the use of labor saving machinery. In politics he 
was a Whig, then Republican. 

MRS. GREENLEE was a deeply religious woman. Before her marriage she 
was a member of Carmel Baptist Church, and he became a member soon after. 
At this church they were regular attendants, often going the eight or ten miles 
on foot and carrying a child in arms. Later they became members of the 
Spring and Cussawago Church and helped build a house of worship about two 
and one-half miles from their home. This church disbanded and they became 
members of the Spring Church at Springboro. Mrs. Greenlee extended her 



MICHAEL OF DELAWARE. 55 

charity to all. The ministers of her church were never criticized nor their 
sermons spoken of disparagingly. A needy one was never turned away empty 
handed. One instance will show the ready sympathy accorded them. It was 
cold weather when a minister called at their home to spend the night. He was 
thinly clad ; and after he went to bed, Mrs. Greenlee took flannel from her loom, 
cut and made under-clothing, and had them ready for his use in the morning.

JACOB DAVIS GREENLEE had very limited educational advantages. His 
mother taught him to read from the Bible, hymn book and Pilgrim's Progress, 
the only books in their humble home. He attended school three months one 
winter, walking three miles each day over rough roads and through forests 
infested by wild beasts ; yet he acquired sufficient knowledge to make him suc- 
cessful in life. In the spring of 1834, he removed to Ohio and settled near 
Westville, now Amboy. He lived on the same farm for forty years; then be- 
coming unable to attend to the work, he sold the farm and bought a home in 
the town of Amboy, where he spent the remainder of his life. 

GEORGE WASHINGTON GREENLEE went to Kansas Territory in March, 
1857, and wrote from there in August of the same year. He rode about fifty 
miles without meeting a white man. He was delighted with the beauty of the 
country and the soft warm air, sleeping out of doors without cover, revolver 
in hand. He intended to go to Mexico and practice his profession, dentistry, 
but the next year wrote from the same place. He felt a keen pleasure in hunt- 
ing with the Indians and enjoyed their wild life. He died and was buried on 
a spot now covered by the city of Denver. 

ARLINE BLANCHE GREENLEE attended Kingsville Academy when it 
was at its zenith, and afterward was a student at Oberlin College. She spent 
the greater portion of her life at Amboy, where she was closely identified with 
the Methodist Church and its people, filling the office of Superintendent of the 
Sabbath School, and organist. After the death of her mother, she resided with 
her sister, Mrs. Morris, at Kingsville.

LUCINDA GREENLEE, notwithstanding the poor facilities for education, 
was so persevering that she succeeded in obtaining a very fair education for 
those times, and stored her mind with choice extracts from the best writers 
of the day. In early life she united with the Baptist Church and Avas a con- 
sistent and useful member of about twenty years. She subsequently became a 
member of the Universalist organization at Conneautville. 

She was a remarkable woman, of much wisdom and good judgment. Her 
economy and perseverance were evident in the home life to the material suc- 
cess of the family. Although the radius of her life was uneventful, her trials 
and sorrows were many but were borne patiently and bravelJ^ To cheerfully 
accept the duties of life as they came and "make the best of things" was her 
unquestionable law. She was married to Lemuel Stebbins two or three years 
after he came to Pennsylvania. Lfnited in heart as well as in hand, they began 
life's battle in earnest, with little to help them but their strong arms and their 
abiding faith in God. 

Mr. Stebbins prospered wonderfully and added to his farm, first the Eliot 
farm adjoining his on the west, then the "Webster farm adjoining on the south. 
As the country became more developed he occasionally drove cattle to the 
eastern markets, bringing home with him news of the outside world, and some 
of the new inventions, notably the first cook stove brought into the county, which 
arrived in its original pieces. On one of his eastern trips he procured mulberry 
settings, and then silk worm eggs which were carefully hatched and cared for by 
the older girls, their brother Lot sometimes helping to gather the leaves for 
feeding. This experiment added to the children's knowledge and income. The 
girls spim the silk on their flax wheels and reeled it into skeins and the father 
sold it for them. Besides silk mitts and work bags which they made from 
some of the silk, they had black silk gowns bought with the proceeds from 
the sale of their silk. But the climate proved too damp for the tender worms 
and they ran out the third or fourth year. The large mulberry trees stood across 
the road from the house, where a peach orchard afterward outlived its useful-

ness. He planted a large apple orchard on the southern exposure of a hill; 
also near the house he planted crabapple, pear and sugar plum trees, all of 
which bore fine fruit. For a time he was in the dry goods business at Mosier- 
town. In 1849-50 he, in company with his brother John, his son Lot, and his 
son-in-law Silas Clark, and Minot Boyd, bought curd and ran the first cheese 
factory in that part of the state. He was very prosperous in this business and

a larger one in Hayfield Township, securing a good bargain because the house 
on the new farm was said to be haunted. He and his wife received their new 
neighbors cordially, and the tales of strange noises heard and ghosts seen, 
soon became old stories. He was a man of wonderful patience and even temper.

60 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Mrs. Greenlee said she never knew him to be angry but once, and that was 
when a man drew a dirk at him while he was pitching hay in his own barn. In- 
stantly a sense of deep indignation and passion overtook him, and he made for 
him with the pitchfork with all vengeance, but his enemy by a dexterous move 
escaped an untimely death, for which the family was always thankful, that the 
name of Greenlee might be handed down unblemished and unscathed. 

In 1856 he removed to Eyota, Olmsted County, Minnesota, and resided in 
that vicinity the remainder of his life. At the age of twenty-one he united with 
the Baptist Church. In 1856 he severed his connection with that church, and 
joined the Christ Adelphians. of which society he was a most devout member. 
He was a close student, a fluent conversationalist and a formidable opponent in 
Biblical discussion. In politics he was a Whig, then Republican. 

MRS. CATHARINE (COMPTON) GREENLEE, when a child, was drown- 
ing when she was seen by a neighbor who saved her life. When she was 
twelve j'ears old her father's house was burned and she had a narrow escape, 
but two little brothers were burned to death with their arms around each 
other. Her father kept the first hotel in Jleadville. She spun and wove all her 
linen before she was married. She was highly respected by all who knew her. 

MARY ELEANOR GREENLEE spent the early part of her life on the old 
farm in Pennsylvania. She removed with her parents to Eyota, Olmsted 
County, Minnesota. Chatfield was the nearest town of any size. At the age 
of sixteen she with her brother John attended an Academy taught by Pro- 
fessor Thomas Thickstim, his wife, brother and sister, all of Meadville, and 
most excellent teachers. Two years later she accompanied her brother Dr. D. R. 
Greenlee and his wife back to Meadville to attend school. She entered a fine 
school for Young Ladies kept by the Misses Calender, and returned two years 
later to Minnesota. She commenced teaching at twenty years of age and taught 
in a number of schools among them the public schools at Chatfield and Rush- 
ford, having to resign from the latter the second year on account of poor health. 
After resting a few months she laimched into the millinery business in Chat- 
field and built up a successful business in which she continued for nine years, 
then sold out and went to Mason City, Iowa which was a larger city. Here 
she had a flourishing trade for ten years. She then sold out and spent the next 
three years mostly in traveling and visiting. She was much pleased with 
California and woidd have liked living there but it seemed too far from home. 
She returned to Mason City, boarding a year and working in a millinery store, 
and then decided to build a home.

EDMUND GREENLEE was the son of one of the earliest settlers of 
Crawford County. After his marriage he went directly to the log cabin which 
he had built in the woods on his newly purchased farm in the northeast corner 
of Summerhill Township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, his land extend-

ing over into Spring Township. On this land he resided for about seventy 
years. A vestige of the cellar of the old log cabin, now the site of a cider mill, 
is still to be seen. The furniture of the cabin was of the most primitive descrip- 
tion, including two splint-bottom chairs, a cross-legged table, four plates, two 
knives, two forks, two spoons, two cups and saucers, and a teapot. The fire- 
place was then the only means of cooking, and the baking was done in a tin 
oven in front of the log fire. "Tallow dips" afforded them illumination. Mr. 
Greenlee chopped and felled the trees, his wife helping to roll them into piles 
to be burned at night. When they were well settled an orchard was planted. 
One day while in the orchard Mrs. Greenlee looking through the fence spied a 
large buck deer on the other side of the fence chewing his cud. She stepped up 
quietly and reaching her arm between the rails, grabbed the buck by the horns 
and held him until Mr. Greenlee came with an ax and killed him. It was a 
source of much comment and a great feast for some time. 

When the farm was cleared and sowed to grass he purchased cows and 
started a dairy. The business increased and they soon had a dairy of from 
forty to fifty cows — then considered a large number. Mrs. Greenlee helped in 
the work connected with the dairy and one season milked seventeen cows night 
and morning in addition to her household duties and caring for the children. 
Mr. Greenlee besides milking, attended to the butter and cheese which he sold 
at the market places. He was a man of considerable inventive genius and de- 
vised and manufactured machinery for making all of his ovra cheese boxes 
and butter kegs at the time he was conducting an extensive dairy business. He 
invented the first machine for milking cows, which consisted of a receiver with 
two air pumps and four stop-cocks, from which tubes ran to the cow's teats, the 
milking being accomplished by the suction from the air pumps. It worked well 
until the milk was partly exhausted from the cow's udder, when it would col- 
lapse and the milk stop. He was unable to remedy this and the machine conse- 
quently did not prove a success, although before he learned this diflSculty, he 
was offered quite a large sum of money for the invention. In 1860, at the time 
that Drake first struck oil at Titusville, Mr. Greenlee adapted his machinery to 
the manufacture of oil barrels. We give one of his business cards on opposite 
page. 

In the later years of his life ]\Ir. Greenlee endeavored to construct a machine 
which he called the "Great American Combine" for planting and harvesting 
most kinds of grain, including corn, digging potatoes, and doing different kinds 
of work. He built a model, but never completed it. 

He was a man of very even temper, never allowing himself to become angry. 
It was one of his characteristics always to return good for evil. As an illustra- 
tion of this trait the following incident is related : 

A neighbor who lived on a farm adjoining that of Mr. Greenlee, cut the 
brush and elders from his side of the road, carried them across the road and 
threw them into l\Ir. Greenlee's grass for a distance of sixty or eighty rods. 
This was just before haying time. When it was discovered Mrs. Greenlee's 
idea was to make him pay damages ; but Mr. Greenlee said, ' ' I will heap coals 
of fire on his head." Two or three days afterward Mr. Greenlee had occasion 
to drive to the town of Conneautville, seven miles distant. When passing the 
neighbor's house he saw him standing in the yard and called out, "Good

morning John! I am going to town. Is there anything I can do for you?" 
The neighbor asked him to get a point for his plow, and Mr. Greenlee agreed 
to do so. After reaching town it escaped his mind and he did not again think 
of the plow point until he was about half way home. He turned around and 
went back after it, feeling that he could not afford to miss the opportunity 
of doing this man a kindness. As he came back he saw the neighbor, handed 
him the plow point and remarked, "I came very near forgetting it, and turned 
back when I was half way home. " " Edmund, ' ' said the man, ' ' I am very sorry 
you went back for that point. I don't know why you did it." "I probably 
would not have found much to do at home as it is Saturday afternoon," said 
Mr. Greenlee, "and I told you I would get it for you." The man's conscience 
troubled him and he finally said, "Edmund, I served you a very mean trick a 
few days ago. I cut the brush and elders from my side of the road and threw 
them over into j^our meadow. I will pick them all out." And he did so, taking 
much more time than was spent in putting them there. The two men were 
ever afterward firm friends; whereas, had Mr. Greenlee acted differently they 
might have been enemies. 

While his children were small Mr. Greenlee was very strict with them, 
although very kind. Naturally the twin brothers, Ralph and Robert, were 
always into some mischief and their father frequently had to promise them 
punishment. However, he would never administer the punishment at the time 
of the offense — probably to avoid any display of temper — but would wait until 
he had leisure, or until a rainy day, when he would say, "Well boys I guess we 
might as well settle up now," the meaning of which they well knew. After 
spending some time in talking to them and giving them advice, he would pro- 
ceed to balance accoimts, giving them punishment for each promise he had 
made them. 

Edmund Greenlee was a strong man physically and mentally. He was 
public-spirited and progressive, ever ready to assist and advance the cause of 
humanity, and was identified with many improvements. His industry knew no 
bounds. In politics, he was a Republican. He was one of the organizers of the 
Methodist Church in Summerhill Township, now known as the "Smith Church," 
for which he gave the land and furnished a large part of the lumber and other 
materials for the building. 

He died at the old homestead, now owned by his sons Ralph and Robert, 
and his body was taken to Chicago for interment by the side of his wife in 
Rose Hill Cemetery. 

Edmund Greenlee was a kind husband and father and a good neighbor. He 
was emphatically a man of peace. 

MART WRIGHT STEBBINS GREENLEE was bom near Wilbraham, 
Massachusetts about eight miles from Springfield. Here she lived with her 
parents until 1811 when they moved to Sangerfield, New York where her father 
died in 1813. After his death they moved to Lebanon, New York and later 
to Crawford County Pennsylvania. Her half-brother, Daniel Stebbins came to 
Crawford County first, then her brother Lemuel Stebbins followed with their 
mother and the rest of the family. The household goods were brought in an 
ox-cart, the family traveling most of the way on foot. 



64 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

She made the most of her opportunities for obtaining an education and 
fitted herself to become a teacher. She taught several terms before she met and 
married Edmund Greenlee, receiving wheat, corn and rye in payment for her 
services. 

At that earlj' day farmer's wives were obliged to make the clothing of both 
men and women. Mrs. Greenlee was an expert at spinning and weaving. She 
carded and spun wool and flax and wove the same into cloth for family use. It 
is said that she learned to spin when so small that it was necessary for her to 
walk up and down an inclined board in order to reach the spindle wheel; yet 
in that way she was able to spin what was considered a full day's work and 
finish at three o'clock. She was a model housekeeper, a woman of untiring 
energy, but did her work intelligently and made every step count. When ever 
she had occasion to go into the pantry for anything she always remembered to 
take in something to put away, thus saving time and labor. It was her prac- 
tice in early life on wash daj's to scrub the floor first, so that when the washing 
was done the house would be clean. 

Mrs. Greenlee had a keen sense of right and wrong and was very zealous in 
the care and training of her children. She possessed a decided taste for reading 
and had a remarkable memory. She knew the Bible almost by heart, and could 
instantly tell where to find any passage in it that was quoted and rarely made 
a mistake. She was a woman of strong character, a true helpmate to her 
husband and an exemplary mother. She died while on a visit to her sons in 
Chicago and was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery.

JOHN KENNEDY DEYARMAN was a soldier in the Civil War. He 
enlisted in Captain J. B. Morris' company, 7th Virginia Infantry, serving in 
eastern Virginia. He entered the service in the summer of 1861 and died the 
following year in the hospital at Cumberland, Maryland, of typhoid fever. He 
was a brave soldier. At a skirmish at Roney, Virginia, a bomb shell struck 
the bank near the company, burying them knee deep with dirt. It did not burst 
but rolled back near to him, the fuse still burning. He reached out and snuflEed 
it out as he would a candle, thus saving the lives of a number of his company. 

EWING B. DEYARMAN joined the army in 1864 as teamster, being then 
only sixteen years old. He had been serving one month when he was captured 
by "Moseby's Men," having the button shot off his cap before he was taken

THOMAS SHANKLAND TURNEAURE, soon after his birth, was taken 
by his parents to Pike, Alleghany Coiinty (now Wyoming), New York. The 
privileges at this new settlement were very limited and aiiforded little oppor- 
tunity for an education, and most of the time he attended district school only 
three months in the year. When he was sixteen years of age he went to 
Pennsylvania. While hewing timber in the spring of 1839 he cut his knee 
badly and not giving it proper care, after weeks of suffering, had his limb 
amputated in July. He was to have been married in August to Bethiah Green- 
lee, but they were not married until December. He was a poor man and a 
cripple, and the outlook was not very bright for a young couple to think of

making a home. The day they were married he went with the minister to her 
father's house. He told her that if she then felt that she would rather not 
marry him that they would give it up, but she did not think that would be 
right, although her relatives had tried to persuade her against marrying him. 
They lived on a small farm of fifty acres and, except in winter, he followed 
his trade as carpenter. His wife would take him to work Monday morning 
and go for him Saturday afternoon, often taking her knitting with her when he 
would be along to drive. She managed everything, making butter and cheese, 
going to mill, etc. The home was always bright and cheerful, and there was 
always an abundance of everything for the comfort of the family. He resided 
in Crawford coimty, Pennsylvania until June, 1865. While living there he was 
twice elected to the ofSce of Justice of the Peace, although he served only 
one term, and he was for a number of years a school director in the town of 
Spring. He removed to Belvidere, Illinois, which was still (1899) his home. 
In politics he was a Republican ; in religion. Baptist.

MICHAEL GREENLEE spent his early life on his father's farm. He suc- 
ceeded in gaining a good common school education, and learned the trades 
of carpenter and shoemaker without serving an apprenticeship in either. He 
remained with his parents until after his marriage, when he undertook making 
a home of his own. He would often labor all day in the field, or at the 
bench, and in the evening turn the kitchen into a workshop, making shoes or 
shaving shingles. He was strictly temperate in his habits, never using liquors 
nor tobacco in any form. He was possessed of an even temper and a happy 
disposition, which made him a model husband and father.

also learned dressmaking and taught school; but she was obliged to give up 
teaching on account of poor health. 

EMAN HUBBARD OWEN was a sawyer, stone cutter and carpenter, and 
moved buildings. He prospered but sharpers would swindle him, so he was 
obliged to give that up. He bought a watermill on Conneaut Creek in Sum- 
merhill Township. At one time he was offered four thousand dollars for the 
mill, but declined to sell it. After that the Erie Canal went down, and he lost

afterward took a special course at Allegheny College, and later entered the 
University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1881. He rose rapidly in his pro- 
fession. "He was very frequently called on to give expert testimony in eases 
tried in our courts of justice, and occasionally he was called to render a like 
service in other counties of the state" says the West Chester News. He was a 
member of the Philadelphia Pathological Society, the College of Physicans of 
Philadelphia, and of the Pennsylvania State Medical Society. He was a mem- 
ber of the West Chester Board of Pension examiners under the Harrison admin- 
istration. He was thrown from a carriage and died two months later on May 
6, aged 46 years. He was one of Pennsylvania's most useful men and stood as

Springfield, Pennsylvania. Just at the close of the Civil War he went West, 
stopping at Booneville, ]\Iissouri, where he was threatened with a rope by the 
outlaws or Bushwhackers, it being a rabid rebel town at that time. He left 
there and went to Sandoval, Illinois, where he remained one year, then returned 
to Ohio. He engaged in farming, and also carried the mail from Jefferson, 
Ohio, to Linesville, Pennsylvania, until 1878, then moved to Michigan, where he 
spent three years clearing up a farm. The great forest fire of 1881 caused him 
the loss of a mill yard of logs. He removed to Unionville, Michigan, and accepted 
a position to travel for a New York firm, remaining there eleven years. In 1885 
he lost his dwelling and a large store building by fire. He rebuilt in 1891 but 
moved back to Amboy, where he has since been engaged in the propagation of 
small fruit.

SILAS CLARK was born in May, 1816 ; the following November his parents 
moved from Greenwich to Sodus, Wayne County, New York and in 1832 they 
moved to Pittsford, near Rochester. He was the eldest of eight children. He 
received a common school education, his father, who was well educated, giving 
him much assistance at home. His father, who was of Scotch-Irish descent, 
though of a clerical family, was a blacksmith and a very good one. His mother, 
who was also from New England, Springfield, Massachusetts, was of English 
descent. His paternal grandfather served in the militia during the Revolution. 
General Montgomery, killed at Quebec, 1775, was his grand-uncle on maternal 
side. 

In 1833 the family moved to Dearborn, Wayne County, Michigan, where 



102 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Silas worked for a farmer, Aaron Thomas. He found the work very heavy but 
kept at it for six months. Mr. Thomas then offered him, if he would continue 
to work for him a year, a soldier's right to eighty acres of swamp land lying 
below the forks of Chicago creek, valued at one hundred and forty -four dollars. 
He wished to accept, but his father said it was good for nothing and never 
would be. He worked mostly at farming until he was about twenty years old 
when he went to school for three months to prepare himself for teaching. He 
taught successfully winters, following the lake summers as a hand lon freight 
boats for about four years, when he was attacked with malarial fever which in- 
capacitated him for any kind of work for a year. He went to Mosiertown, 
Pennsylvania, for his health which improved and he opened a small country 
store and started an ashery for the manufacturing of pearl ashes and saleratus 
which he marketed at Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. 

He and Lorene Stebbins were married at her parents home by Squire Thick- 
ston at twelve o 'clock noon. After the ceremony a turkey dinner was served to 
the guests. That evening he moved his bride's belongings in a wheelbarrow to 
their new home, which consisted of three rooms adjoining his store, and set np 
housekeeping. They were both fond of social pleasures and were prominent in 
the dancing parties given. In the autumn of 1855 he moved to Albion, Erie 
Countj', where he continued his business successfully. In April, 1860, he moved 
to Erie where he engaged in manufacturing saleratus, while continuing his store 
at Albion which was conducted mostly by his brother-in-law, A. B. Carr, who was 
a partner in the business. In the spring of 1861 they moved their merchandise 
to Corry, then in its mushroom existence. Two and a half years later he dis- 
solved partnership with A. B. Carr and moved his stock to Erie, entering into 
partnership with Warren A. Booth, at that time one of the best dry goods men 
in that part of the country. They conducted a thriving dry goods business at 
Erie for six years, then moved their stock to Titusville. About a year later, 
April, 1869, Mr. Clark moved his family to Titusville, and about that time 
bought the McGuire farm on Church Run and began operating in oil. Oil was 
$1.25 a barrel when he went to Titusville and two years after brought three and 
four dollars a barrel. In 1873 he sold his interest in the store and, moving to 
Erie, retired from active business. In Jime, 1874, he made a trip to Colorado 
and invested in mines; and moved his family to Denver in the autumn of the 
same year. His mining investments were unsuccessful, and in 1878 he had to 
begin over again. In February, 1879, he went to Pueblo to sink an oil well, 
having the previous year prospected around Cannon City without success. On 
the first day of January, 1880, he struck artesian mineral water, which proved 
to be highly impregnated with minerals of curative properties. The summer 
following he erected a small rough bath house from which the present com- 
modious house and large business have grown. In the autumn of 1897, he sold 
one-half interest in the Mineral spring and baths, but still attended to his busi- 
ness affairs. He considered the discovery of this mineral spring the greatest 
achievement of his life.

DAVID RILAND GREENLEE assisted his father on the farm until he was 
twenty-one years of age, receiving in the meantime a common school and 
academic education. When he was twenty-one he received a new suit of clothes 
and a colt valued at one hundred dollars. He entered upon the sea of life with 
a limited knowledge of the world. It was his desire to study medicine, but the 
opportunity did not present itself at that time, so he decided on the study of 
dentistry as the next best thing, hoping thus to secure means to gain a medical 
education. During the aiitumn of 1853 he entered the office of Drs. Robbins and 
Sayles, then eminent dentists of MeadviUe, Pennsylvania, giving his colt in ex- 
change for instruction in the profession. Three years were spent in studying, 
Anatomy, Physiology. Chemistry and prosthetic dentistry. At the end of that 
time he opened an office in MeadviUe. Prosperity favored the young dentist, 
and he continued the study of medicine under the tutorage of Dr. H. R. Bell of 
MeadviUe. In 1859 a course of medical lectures were taken at Ann Arbor. In 
1862 he commenced the practice of medicine and surgery with his preceptor, 
both being employed by the Pittsburgh and Boston Mining Company at Eagle 
River, Lake Superior, Michigan. In 1864 he enlisted in the army and received 
a commission as Assistant Surgeon of the Fifth Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, 
and served imtil the close of the war. During the years 1866-1867 he graduated 
in medicine and surgery from the University of Pennsylvania, and at the same 
time received a diploma from the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgeons. 
His practice was limited to medicine and surgery, and he continued at Mead- 
viUe and vicinity iintil 1883. when he moved to Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and 
from there to St. Paul. In 1891 he received an appointment to the Minnesota 
Soldier's Home, as Surgeon. He has served as a member of the Board of Pen- 
sion examiners both in Pennsylvania and Minnesota, and occupied many other 
positions of trust. In 1887 he took a post graduate course at Rush Medical 
College, Chicago. He joined the Masonic society and the Odd Fellows in the 
early fifties. In 1878 he was Grand Regent of the Royal Arcanum for the state

ISABELLA VICTORIA GREENLEE attended the public schools of Chicago 
up to the age of fifteen years, with the exception of sixteen months spent in 
travelling with the family in Europe and the Orient. She spent her tenth birth- 
day in Bethlehem, and was the first American little girl to go through Pales- 
tine. In 1891 she entered the Ogontz School for Young Ladies, near Philadel- 
phia, Pennsylvania. In 1895 she went with the family on a trip around the 
world, which extended throughout the year. She was a sensitive, retiring child, 
though enjoying society when her health permitted. She was much interested 
in children and spent about a year in the Chicago Kindergarten College, but 
never very strong, the work proved too hard for her and she gave it up. She 
studied music with Mr. Leibling of Chicago, having piano lessons from him,

though she never was more than a home performer on that instrument. She 
also played the mandolin. She died after a short illness, June 19, 1902.

ROBERT LEMUEL GREENLEE and RALPH STEBBINS GREENLEE 
began at the age of ten to assist in the active duties of farm life by carrying 
the milk from the yard into the cheese house, in that way helping their mother 
with her milking. At the age of twelve each of them milked ten cows night 
and morning, and became very expert milkers. A year or two afterward they 
learned to make the cheese and butter, and were able to attend to that while 
their father was engaged in other duties on the farm. After their father had 
invented a machine for the manufacture of his cheese boxes and butter firkens, 
the boys helped him in that department, thus learning the cooper's trade. 
Robert Lemuel was left-handed and Ralph Stebbins Greenlee, right-handed. 
They chopped as one man and did their other work in the same manner. 

They were given the best educational advantages the common schools af- 
forded, and later attended Allegheny College at Meadville, Pennsylvania, al- 
though neither of them completed the college course. 

While working for their father their mechanical skill was developed. They 
became acquainted with ^Ir. Drake, the first discoverer of oil, and furnished 
him with barrels. They also manufactured oil barrels for Oil Creek, but this 
did not prove a successful venture as the price of barrels became very low, 
and the flow of oil was so great that it became of little value. When they 
could not sell their barrels they bought oil at twenty-five cents a barrel ; but 
the difficulties were so great in getting it from the field that they lost money 
on it. At that time Oil Creek was practically a wilderness, except here and 
there a clearing with a small farm house. They were well acquainted with 
"Coal Oil Johnn}-" and at one time stopped over night at the home of his 
fostermother, "Widow McClintock." 

They purchased their father's patents for keg and barrel machinery, giving 
him their notes for six thousand dollars in payment, and went into the business 
of manufacturing cooperage. They met with so much success that they were 
able to meet the notes at the end of the first year. 

In 1862 the brothers decided to go to Chicago and continue the manufacture 
of cooperage on a larger scale, having their machiner}- constructed in Erie, 
Pennsylvania. They made a contract with Samuel M. Nickerson & Company

MICHAEL OF DELAWARE. 109 

for the manufacture of barrels for the distillery which was then using one 
hundred and sixty barrels per day. They little expected opposition from the 
coopers, and were not aware of the existence of a Cooper's Union — probably 
the first union ever established in Chicago. It was soon decided by the Union 
that it was not to their interest to allow the Greenlee machinery to run. At 
that time none but woodbound barrels would do for high wines, and they were 
not prepared with machinery for the splitting, shaving, and setting of hickory 
hoops, as the oil barrels which they had made in Pennsylvania were hooped with 
iron, for which they had the machinery. Consequently it was necessary for 
them to employ coopers to do that work. It was one of the rules of the 
Union that no one but a cooper's son should be allowed to leai-n the trade. The 
Union decided that the only way to drive out the machinery was to finish only 
as many barrels as they could have made by hand, so it would cost just as 
much for merely hooping a barrel as it would to shave the staves and heading 
by hand, joint them, truss them, and finish the barrel. In this way the Green- 
lees would receive practically nothing for the work done by the machinery. Not 
only that, but the coopers would make the barrels leak if possible, either by 
putting hickory chips across the joints under the hoops, or by making holes in 
the joints from the inside. It finally became necessary to discharge all the 
union coopers and hire green men from the street, whom they were able to 
teach to split, shave and hoop a barrel. In that way they became independent 
and as a result practically broke up the union, although it required a great 
deal of money, perseverance, and energy. They were at their place of business 
from five and six in the morning until eight or nine at night, in that way 
preparing the material for work the following day. They made a success of 
the cooperage business, and finally organized a company which was known as 
the "United States Barrel Machine Company," and sold out their patents. 

In 1864 they became members of the Board of Trade, and remained mem- 
bers for three or four years. They did not meet with success and decided that 
they were not adapted for a speculative business. At that time the Board of 
Trade was located on South Water Street, and the membership fee was twenty- 
five dollars. 

In 1866 they formed a co-partnership with their father-in-law, Mr. William 
Brooks, and under the firm name of Greenlee Brothers & Company, entered 
business for the general sale of machinery and railway and machinists sup- 
plies, in addition to cooperage, which they carried on successfully for a few 
years. They then purchased Mr. Brooks' interest and engaged in the manu- 
facture of special lines of wood- working machinery for the manufacture of 
sash, doors and blinds, and special machinery for railroad car building. They 
were the first to adopt and make a success of mortising timber by the use of the 
hollow chisel ; or, as it was called, boring a square hole. They have taken out a 
number of patents on machinery for use in that connection and other special 
wood-working machinery. They have been constantly adding new inventions 
and methods until the Greenlee machines have become famous with manu- 
facturers in wood all over the world. Immediately after the great fire in 
1871, they removed to their quarters on West Twelfth street. 

In 1882, in connection with the wood-working machinery business they 
engaged in the manufacture of repairs for all stoves and ranges, which has 



110 GKEENLEE GENEALOGY. 

grown to such an extent that they now have patterns for the burning out 
pieces of over one hundred and fifty thousand different stoves and ranges, 
being the largest concern of the kind in the world. Their trade extends prac- 
tically over the whole country. The same year they built a foundry for the 
manufacture of castings for their wood-working machinery and stove re- 
pairs. 

In 1886 the firm of Greenlee Brothers & Company was incorporated, and 
they also incorporated the Northwestern Stove Repair Company, which em- 
ploys 60 to 70 men, and the Greenlee Foundry Companj^, which employs 200 
men, and in this way were enabled to divide their personal property. They 
have since added to the manufacture of wood-working machinery, the manu- 
facture of augur bits of every description. 

In 1903 Greenlee Brothers & Company moved their plant to Rockford, 
Illinois. The factory site comprises twenty-two acres of ground, the present 
buildings covering about eleven acres. They manufacture wood-working 
machinery, particularly for car shops, mortising, boring, sawing and tenoning 
machinery, wood boring tools, square augurs, etc. The buildings are mostly 
fire-proof and are all steel construction. There are two machine shops, a one- 
store building, 300 x 265 feet, the other, also a one-story building, the forge 
shop, 50 X 150 feet; the tool department, a two-story building, 50 x 200 feet; 
engine house. 50 x 85 feet ; pattern building. 75 x 150 feet ; two storage build- 
ings, 50 X 100 feet each ; a forge shop, 40 x 300 feet and a foundry 75 x 180 feet. 
They contemplate erecting a tool finishing and augur bit department, 100 x 
300 feet. They give employment to about four himdred men. 

"When they came to Chicago they had very little money but have never 
received any financial assistance. They have always been in business together, 
their interests being equal, and their success can be attributed to their perfect 
confidence in each other and their unity of action. If one is away the other 
acts independently, each having full power of attorney from the other, to do 
anything necessary with their property, both personal and real. 

Some years after their removal to Chicago, they bought the old homestead 
in Crawford Coiinty, which remains the home of the Greenlee family in Penn- 
sylvania. They married sisters (both of whom were twins, but not of the 
same pair), daughters of William Brooks who for many years was a resident of 
Sherbrooke, Canada, and one of the leading spirits of the conservative gov- 
ernment of the Dominion, but later became a resident of Chicago. 

In 1904 they published "The Stebbins Genealogy" in two large volumes, 
printed on fine antique hand made paper, and substantially boimd ia half 
morocco. They endeavored to combine all the good qualities in the many 
hundreds of genealogies in the Newberry Library, one of the main points being 
to make it so plain that a child could understand and easily trace his ancestry. 
The result is summed up in the following reviews from the two most noted 
genealogical magazines in the United States.

tents reveals, as distinguishing features, marginal references to authorities, 
fac-similes of portions of the Domesday Book relating to Stebbins, besides 
extracts from various other English sources, historical and statistical, frequent 
and minute biographical details, and an unusually specific index. Much 
attention has been bestowed on the females lines, as also on persons intermar- 
rying with the Stebbins family, particular pains having been devoted to the 
Stebbins-Burt-Ball intermarriages. The appendixes comprise military services, 
Stebbins authors and other matters of importance. The capitalization of names 
of Stebbins descendants and husbands or wives is specially worthy of note. 
There are over five hundred illustrations, chiefly portraits. — [From the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register.] 

The Stebbins Genealogy. Ralph Stebbins Greenlee and Robert Lemuel 
Greenlee. In two volumes. Chicago. Privately printed. 1904. Folio, half 
morocco, pp. 1.386. 

These fine volumes, imposing in appearance, and most comprehensive in 
scope are rich in details which gladden the sight of the experienced worker, and 
will no doubt be most helpful to those members of the Stebbins family who are 
fortunate enough to secure copies of the work. No pains or expense have been 
spared to make this history the most complete of its kind. In attempting to 
discover the English birthplace of Rowland Stebbins, the American progenitor, 
recourse was had to Domesday Book, and photographs were made of it and the 
chest in which it is kept, and fac-similes made of portions of the original text, 
accompanied by translations of it. The biography of Rowland Stebbins is very 
full, and in this as in all the early generations the compilers have given marginal 
references for each vital statement. Capitals are used for the names of the 
Stebbins descendants and their husbands or wives, and the head of each family 
is given in heavy-faced type, thus greatly assisting the eye. A very unusual, 
if not original feature is that following the name of the head of a branch, 
beside the brief tracing back by generations to the founder, each ancestor 
bearing his generation and family number, the wife of each forefather is given 
beneath her husband's name, enabling one to get the line at a glance. The 
compilers have been most successful in discovering the places and dates of 
birth, marriage and death, as well as a good deal of general information. The 
records of military service in the second volume are particularly valuable, be- 
cause proper references are given for all of them, a feature seldom observed 
in a family history. After noting so much excellence, it is most satisfactory 
to find the index completing this beautiful piece of workmanship so thoroughly 
as to cover 160 pages. In this index the name of the Stebbins descendant is 
followed by the names of his parents and his generation and page number. The 
volumes are liberally illustrated and altogether reflect great credit upon those 
interested in their production. — [From the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Record.] 

As will be seen by their photographs, the brothers very closely resemble each 
other, and they are as much alike in character, disposition and thought, as in 
looks. They have always taken a lively interest in the welfare of the city, 
and both are members of the Union League Club. They have been extensive 
travelers; and, with their families, who always accompany them, have visited 
most of the foreign countries, making trips around the world, and going into

the interior of China, Japan, and other oriental countries. Their leading char- 
acteristics are inbred politeness, kindness and consideration for others, coupled 
with indomitable ■will-power, untiring energy, broad liberality and uncom- 
promising honesty. Their fortunes have been fairly gained, and stand proud 
monuments to their sturdy manhood and genius.

MARY LUCINDA GREENLEE was an unusually bright child, and learned 
her A-B-C 's when but four years old. Prom that time on she attended school 
at Edinboro, and there finished the days of her school life. A little incident, 
which illustrates her kind and ambitious character when but a child, occurred 
one day when her parents had left her home alone while they drove to town. 
A Mr. Cole had been with them that day working about the house and Mary 
Lucinda, then but four years old, thought that he ought to have his supper. 
She went out and asked him to get some potatoes for her, as she could not 
reach them, and told him she would cook them for him if he would. He got 
them and she cooked them and also fried some meat; set the table as well as 
she could but being very little she could not set the dishes on and had to push 
them on from the edge. Mr. Cole enjoyed his meal and was very much pleased 
and amused with his little hostess. It was very hard work for her, and after 
Mr. Cole had finished she asked him if he would rock her to sleep, which he 
did. 

After her marriage with William Dallas Greenlee, they lived at McKean, 
Erie County, Pennsylvania. They moved from McKean to Chicago two years 
before the Chicago fire, and resided on the west side.

HARLEY UMBERFLELD GREENLEE spent three years, 1859 to 1862 in 
Pennsylvania oil diggings. On August 14, 1862 he enlisted in Company A under 
Colonel James Irwin Gregg, and joined the Army of the Potomac. He was at 
ChancellorsviUe, Brandy Station, Mine Run, Wilderness, in the Richmond 
Raid, Cold Harbor, and other important engagements, until the fight at Deep 
Bottom, where he received a serious wound in the shoulder. Four months 
later he joined his regiment at Light House Point and was in action at Five 
Forks and Appomattox. On June 14, 1865 he was honorably discharged at 
Lynchburg, Virginia. 

At the close of the war Mr. Greenlee went directly to Bedford, Iowa, with- 
out capital or education, with only willing hands and a determination to make 
something of himself. At first he worked as a common laborer, but he was not 
satisfied with a menial position and ere long engaged in business for himself. 
He purchased a stone quarry within the city limits, opened it, and began laying 
foundations for buildings. He soon added the manufacture of lime to his busi- 
ness. He gradually worked up an immense trade for a radius of many miles 
beyond his own town. His whole career has been characterized by honorable 
and iipright dealing, which is the secret of his success. In politics he is a 
Republican; in religion, Baptist.

eight years old, when they moved to a farm in Iowa County, Wisconsin. He re- 
mained with them until he was twenty-three years of age, and during three 
years of his life at home he managed to learn the trade of mason. Hearing 
that Iowa was one of the best states in the Union, he resolved to go west and see 



MICHAEL OF DELAWARE. 143 

for himself. Tama County seemed to impress him quite favorably and he 
located at Traer in the spring of 1875, and went to work at his trade. He was 
kept continually busy from the time the frost was out of the ground until it 
was frozen again in the fall, always having a large crew of men with him. 
But after eight years of this hard labor he became convinced that there were 
easier ways of making a living than by pounding stone and slinging mortar and 
so resolved to go into the lumber business. In the fall of 1883 he bought the 
lumber yard formerly owned by C. C. Johnson and is still doing business at 
the same stand. His yard is filled with as complete a stock of lumber as can 
be found in many towns twice the size of Traer, and is equipped with a large 
lumber shed and office. He has the bell telephone connected with the office so 
that he has communication with all the cities of any size throughout the state. 
His yard is very centrally located and adjoins the line of the B. C. R. & N., thus 
affording the best facilities for the receipt and sale of the stock carried, which 
embraces rough and dressed lumber, lath, shingles, sash, doors, blinds, mould- 
ings, and all kinds of building material such as stone, brick, lime, cement and 
Adament plaster — the best in the market. Mr. Baker is also a master in the 
art of planning and in 1896 built one of the finest residences that there is in 
the city. In 1890 he opened a lumber yard at Dinsdale and is still running it ; 
also one at the new town of Clutier. In politics, he is a Republican; in re- 
ligion, Congregationalist.

MICHAEL DAVID GREENLEE whose father died before his birth, lived 
with his mother's people, his mother meanwhile teaching school and working as 
a tailoress to support her children. After her second marriage, he found a home 
with his mother and stepfather, until 1867, when his mother was again left a 
widow with four small children. It being just after the close of the war, the 
unsettled conditions of business affairs demanded immediate attention if a home 
was to be saved for the mother and children. In order to do this he had to 
sacrifice the long cherished hope of attending the State Normal School, for 
which he had toiled and struggled for the past two or three years. About five 
years later, the home being secured and the eldest child quite a lad, Michael 
started for the dry climate of eastern Kansas. On January 1, 1872, when the 



144 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

first passenger train passed over the track of what was then a branch of the 
Missouri Pacific Raih-oad (now part of the Santa Fe System), he went into the 
office as clerk and general roustabout, working for his board and clothing, and 
applying his spare moments to study. In November, 1872, the station agent 
resigned and he received the appointment as agent. In 1876 when the Atchison, 
Topeka & Santa Fe leased the right of way and joint use of the tracks ne 
became their agent also; and at the same time became agent for the Wells 
Fargo Express Company, and Western Union Telegraph operator. In 
July, 1877 he was forced to seek the mountain breezes of Colorado and in 
November following returned to Pennsylvania, on what he supposed was 
his last visit to his mother. After several weeks he was able to return to his 
Kansas home, but continued ill health compelled him to resign his position with 
the railroad. Three days later he was asked by a board of directors to take 
charge of and close up the affairs of a co-operative store, which he did. In 
November, 1878, he became bookkeeper and assistant postmaster for Mr. 
Charles Pilla, the leading merchant of the place. After about six years of 
service with Mr. Pilla, he resigned to accept the position of Deputy County 
Clerk of Douglas County. Kansas, and in 1884 removed his family to Lawrence. 
After serving two terms of two years each as Deputy, he was nominated and 
elected as County Clerk, on the Republican ticket. After two years of in- 
cumbency in this office, on account of his refusal to yield to the dictations of 
party bosses in what he believed to be against the interest of his constituents, 
he was defeated in the convention for renomination. He yielded to the voice of 
friends and entered the race as an independent candidate, and he was elected 
by nearly a thousand majority. At the expiration of his second term, feeling 
that he had been vindicated, he retired from politics for good. After this he 
went to work for the Fraternal Aid Association. He was engaged in field 
work when a vacancy occurred in the general secretary's office and he was 
unanimouslj' elected to fill the vacancy. He was General Secretary of this 
association for five years and under his administration the association made 
a great growth. He held that position until July, 1903, when he became en- 
gaged in general insurance work. He was considered one of the finest ac- 
countants in the state. 

Mr. Greenlee was a man of strong character, forceful and able. He was 
a lifelong member of the Baptist church and took an active part in church 
work. When in polities he was always vigorous. His lodge work brought him 
into prominence all over the country. In business he was honest and capable, 
and his entire life was one to make and hold friends. His home was at Law- 
rence, Kansas.

IRA JESSE DUNN began his common school education at the age of seven 
in the little Dunn schoolhouse at the foot of the hill immediately south of Coon 's 
Corners. At the age of fifteen, on account of the impaired health of his father, 
almost the entire charge of the farm and market garden devolved upon him. In 
the winter following his father's death, he taught a four months' term in the 
Curtis school. During the winter the farm was sold and disposition was made 
of the personal property preparatory to moving to Meadville, for the purpose of 
entering Allegheny College, where he completed a course with hard work and 
self sacrifice, such as must be realized when pursued with ambition and low 
finances. After his graduation in 1886, he became principal of the Linesville 
school, with three assistant teachers, and was re-elected for the same position 
the year following, but resigned to take advantage of a scholarship in the j\Iedi- 
cal Department of the University of Pennsj'lvania, which had been won by com- 
petitive examination. After the University closed he taught a short term of 
school at Kirkland, near "West Chester. The next year the principal of the State 
Normal School at West Chester induced him to accept the chair of Latin in that 
institution for the following year. During the winter many medical eases were 
observed with his brother. Dr. Thomas D. Dunn, who practiced in West Chester, 
and much experience gained. He continued his University course thereafter 
without interruption until his graduation in 1891. Soon after graduation he se- 
cured a position as assistant surgeon at the State Hospital for injured miners, 
at Hazelton, Pennsylvania. Here began surgical experience rarely acquired by 
the recent graduate, because as an officer of a state institution, whenever the 
superintendent was away, the assistant must act on his own responsibility. After 
resigning from this position he began a special course with regard to the eye. A 
little later he practiced in the coal region near Hazelton. After leaving there 
nearly a year was spent as assistant physician at the State Lunatic Hospital at 
Harrisburg. After this he spent considerable time at the Polyclinic in Philadel- 
phia, studying the eye, ear, nose and throat. Thereafter he settled in western 
Pennsylvania — in Meadville for a few months, and afterward at Erie where he 
has since devoted himself with some success to the special treatment of the eye, 
ear, nose and throat.

JESSE DICKINSON SEARLES, born April 23, 1832, at Washington, Dutchess 
Co., New York, son of Jesse Dickinson Searles and Phoebe Hallock. 

JESSE DICKINSON SEARLES removed with his parents to Wisconsin in 
1839. His father bought fifteen hundred acres of land, and kept three thousand 
sheep, and shipped the first consignment of wool from the port of Racine, to 
New York City. He watched and kept his father's flocks and between the 
flocks and the farm, he had opportunity to develop strength and to learn the 
value of time and labor. At the age of fifteen he taught his first school. When 
he was in his seventeenth year, he and his brother, Daniel, started for the newly 
discovered gold fields of California. They journeyed across the plains with ox 
teams, leaving home March 5, 1849, and arrived at the Reddings in the Sacra- 
mento Valley on September 22, having been over six months en route. They 
went into the gold fields of this Eldorado on the Yuba River above where Marys- 
ville was afterward built, and there lived and labored. The outcome was some 
gold and much that could not be purchased with gold, namely, improved health 
and a knowledge of the country and of men. Returning home they took ship at 
San Francisco and landed at Acapulco in Mexico, thence across the country on 
horseback, through the City of Mexico to Vera Cruz — a journey of eight him- 
dred miles. From Vera Cruz they crossed the Gulf, then up the Mississippi 
River, arriving at home April 6, 1851. He then attended Beloit College, and 
afterward engaged in teaching for several years. In April, 1858, he united with 
the West Wisconsin Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and has 
been preaching since. He received his forty-fourth annual appointment from 
his conference, consecutively, on the effective list, sixteen years of which was as 
presiding elder, and three years at Deadwood, South Dakota, as Superintendent 
of the Black Hills Mission. He is now pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal 
Church in Superior, Wisconsin. In politics, he is a Republican.

In the Spring of 1886 she went with the family for an extended trip abroad, 
lasting sixteen months. On her return she spent two years more at Lake Forest, 
and then attended the Ogontz School for Young Ladies, at Philadelphia, spend- 
ing two years in study there. In 1895 the family took another trip abroad, 
spending a j^ear traveling aroimd the world. During this time Grace ^v^ote 
regularly to a friend at home, making a complete diary of the trip in this way. 
A few years after her return, at the request of the family, these letters were 
published in a limited edition of two hundred copies, being printed for private 
distribution only. The title of the book was "As we were journeying." It was 
profusely illustrated with half-tones made mostly from photographs taken by 
her brother, William Brooks Greenlee, and made an interesting souvenir of the 
trip. 

CHARLES HURFORD BRACKEBUSH attended public school at Canton, 
Ohio, Terre Haute and Indianapolis, Indiana, Jersey City, New Jersey, and 
Chicago. He came to Chicago in 1882, where he has since resided. At the age

166 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

GERTRUDE GREENLEE attended the public schools of Chicago until her 
fourteenth year, when she entered Lake Forest Seminary at Lake Forest, Illi- 
nois. Her studies there were interrupted to some extent by a trip to Europe 
in 1886, and one to Mexico. On this account she did not graduate with the 
class she originally entered, but with the class of 1890. In June, 1890, imme- 
diately after her graduation, she started with her parents on a journey around 
the world, spending considerable time in Japan, China, India, Egypt and Pales- 
tine, returning to Chicago in November, 1891. After her marriage she con- 
tinued to reside in Chicago. 

JAMES ALLEN LOUNSBURT, eldest son of Cooke and Isabella Spaulding 
Lounsbury, was born in 1867 at Wethersfield, Connecticut. Eearly in 1868, the 
family removed from Wethersfield to Meriden, Connecticut, where they lived 
until 1875, when they removed to Hartford. He was educated in the public 
schools of Hartford. In September, 1887, he entered the employ of the Water- 
house Electric Company of Hartford. In 1889 this company was bought out by 
the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsyl- 
vania. Mr. Lounsbury was retained by the Westinghouse Company, and re- 
mained with them several years as traveling engineer, with headquarters, first 
at Pittsburgh, and later (1889) at Chicago. He left the Westinghouse Com- 
pany in May, 1892, to take the position of Engineer in charge of Incandescent 
Lighting at the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893; and 
was connected with the Exposition until January 1, 1894. He was engaged in 
the manufacture of electrical apparatus, as president of the Lounsbury Manu- 
facturing Company at Chicago, until 1897, when the plant and business were 
entirely destroyed by fire. In 1899, he entered the employ of Greenlee Brothers 
& Company, manufacturers of woodworking machinery, and in 1903 was elected 
Vice President of that company, which ofiSce he still holds.

JOHN OF DELAWARE. 177 

Sallie Ann, born June 17, 1820; married Levin Bivins Pepper.-f- 
David Peniwell, born in 1819 ; died unmarried January 9, 1848. 
Thomas Lockwood, born, 1821; married Sarah Jane Warner; both 

dead; no children. 
Oliver E., born, 1823 ; died September, 1836. 
Lurania Massy, born January 23, 1825 ; died September, 1836. 
Robert Smith, born December 31, 1827; married Eunice Abbott.-|- 
Elizabeth Biddle, born February 7, 1831 ; married Coulter C. Hart.+ 

DAVID GREENLY enlisted before he was quite eighteen at Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania, under Captain Barker, and fought the British at Fort Pike on 
Lake Superior, and was also in the battle of Five Points on the river Thames. 
He was one of twelve men detailed to shoot the Indian chief, Tecumseh. Once, 
while at Fort Pike, he was ordered by Captain Barker to spike a gun and while 
in the act a French Canadian struck him over the right eye with a flint lock 
gun, the hammer tearing the flesh for three inches over the eye. The Captain 
witnessed the affair and shot the French Canadian through the head with a 
horse pistol, killing him instantly. There had been a number of pickets shot 
on the southern post, which was near a long strip of woods skirting the camp. 
It came the turn of a married man, father of five children, to go on this post. 
He offered five pounds to any man who would take his place. David accepted 
the offer, with the imderstanding that he could take a spade along. When 
asked what he wanted with the spade, he replied, "To dig my grave." He 
was young and a favorite, so Captain Barker tried to persuade him not to go. 
When he arrived at the post he told the picket to report all well, and he 
proceeded to dig a hole near an old tree that was broken oft' about six feet 
above the ground, and got into the hole. Inside of thirty minutes he heard the 
rustle of leaves, and saw what he supposed was a big hog, but at last it raised 
up about half way and he saw it was an Indian, so he shot at it. At the report 
of the gun, the Captain came out and not seeing him cried "Dave is killed." 
David then spoke and told the Captain that he had killed an Indian, and they 
proceeded to the spot where they had seen the Indian fall. He made an at- 
tempt to scalp the Indian, but he was not yet dead and would have killed 
David had not the Captain intervened. After his return from the war he 
learned the trade of mill-wright, which he followed for a number of years. His 
mother having died when he was a baby, he was brought up by his uncle John 
Burden, who at his death left him nearly all of his property. 

On May 13, 1817. David Greenly gives receipt to Jacob Biddle and John 
Adams "my former guardians," for $2,931.50, and interest due $78.65. [Deed 
Book R 2, p. 254.] 

David Greenly, carpenter, of North west Fork Hundred. Sussex County and 
State of Delaware, sells October 10, 1821, to Jesse Green Esq. of same County 
and State for $500. part of a tract of land and willed to said Greenlee by his 
uncle John Purdon in Mispillon hundred. [Deed Book V 2, p. 42.]

ville and became an apprentice to learn the cabinet-making trade. He re- 
mained there six years, and after finishing his trade he went to Wheeling, West 
Virginia and did journey work for four months. His brother William had 
moved to Washington, Guernsey County, Ohio, and started a hat shop so Archi- 
bald went there and united with him in carrying on that trade. Having re- 
ceived some money from his father's estate, he built a brick dwelling in which 
his brother lived, he boarding with him. They then bought a dry goods store 
and continued both that and the hat shop for some time, until it was thought 
best to dissolve partnership. William took the house and lot and Archibald 
took the store. He had, however, prior to this time, started a hat shop

opportunities afforded by a limited subscription school. By industrious ap- 
plication to study at home, with the little help he received in the subscription 
schools, he acquired a good common school education. After his marriage he 
settled on a farm and followed farming, boating, and trading on the Ohio 
River until the spring of 1850, when he removed to Jefferson County, Iowa, and 
in 1852 moved to Wayne County, Iowa, where he settled on a tract of wild land 
five miles west of Corydon, the county seat. He immediately went to work 
to improve his farm, with the intention of making it his permanent home. By 
industry and strict economy he prospered financially and soon had his farm 
well improved and well stocked. In 1879 he left the farm and moved to 
Promise City, Iowa, where he engaged in the grocery business, and where he 
resided until his death. Mr. Greenlee has always had the confidence and esteem 
of those who knew him ; and, although never aspiring to office, he was elected 
Justice of the Peace in Wayne County, and served as such for eight years. He 
also served one year as a member of the board of Supervisors, and several 
terms as school director. For several years he was church clerk of Peoria 
Baptist Church. 

ESTHER HETTA (BARNETT) GREENLEE united with the Peoria Baptist 
church in 1854, and from that time until the day of her death lived a consistent 
christian life.

ceiving his education in the district schools during the winter months and by 
studying at home. In the spring of 1861 he commenced the study of medicine 
under Dr. Warren Day Everett. In October, 1861 he enlisted in Company I of 
the 4th Regiment Iowa Volunteer Infantry, for three years. He was with his 
regiment in its first battle at Pea Ridge, Arkansas in March, 1862, and in an 
engagement late in the afternoon of the second day of fighting he was wounded 
in the left arm. However, he did not leave the regiment until he was detailed 
to assist the surgeons in earing for the wounded, and when the army moved 
he was left at Cassville, Missouri in charge of the wounded of his regiment that 
were not able to be moved, with instructions to move them to Springfield, 
Missouri, as soon as they were able. On arriving at the general hospital at 
Springfield, by request of his wounded comrades, he was again detailed to care 
for them until they were able to be sent home on furlough. He again joined 
his regiment at Vicksburg, Mississippi, and was with the regiment in all of its 
compaigns, including Sherman's march to the sea. He re-enlisted January 1, 
1864, and was promoted to the rank of fifth sergeant of the company at Raleigh, 
North Carolina ; then General Lee surrendered and peace was declared. They 
marched across the country to Washington, D. C, marched in the Grand Review 
there, then went to Louisville, Kentucky, where he was discharged from the 
service, and from there went to Davenport, Iowa, where he was mustered out. 
He returned to his home August 10, 1865, having served in the army three years 
and nine months. 

After his marriage he located at Corydon, Wayne County, Iowa. He com- 
pleted his course in medicine, graduating from the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons at Keokuk, Iowa in 1875, and has since been actively engaged in the 
practice of medicine and surgery. In President Cleveland's first administration 
he was appointed postmaster at Weldon, Iowa; and under the second ad- 
ministration of President Cleveland he was a member of the examining board of 
surgeons for the bureau of pensions. He is now examining surgeon for four

DESCENDANTS OF JAMES GREENLEE 

OF 

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, VIRGINIA. 



1.

Pennsylvania, at the home of Mrs. Femme, or Fane, while on a business trip; 
married in 1736 at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, MARY ELIZABETH McDOWELL 
who was born November 17, 1711 in Ireland, died March 15, 1809 aged 97 years,

JAMES GREENLEE came from the north of Ireland with Ephraim Mc- 
Dowell and family, about 1727-29. They landed in Delaware and went from 
there to Pennsylvania. John Lewis, a relative of Ephraim McDowell, had left 
Ireland some years before, and about 1732 settled on the Middle River in the 
Shenandoah Valley, in what was known as Beverly Manor, near the present 
town of Stanton, where he obtained patents for a large tract of land. Ephraim 
McDowell, with his sons John and James, and son-in-law James Greenlee, left 
Pennsylvania in the fall of 1737 to go to Lewis, near whom they intended to 
locate. The long journey was made with regular camp equipments. Tents were 
provided, numerous pack-horses, and each member of the family rode on 
horseback. While on their way, when in camp on Lewis' Creek, a tributary of 
the South River, they were joined one night by Benjamin Borden, Sr., who 
offered one thousand acres of land to any one who would conduct him to his 
grant. This offer was promptly accepted. The men conveyed their families to 

221 



222 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

the home of John Lewis, and then piloted Borden to what has since been known 
as "Borden's Grant," covering much of Augusta and Rockbridge counties. In 
consideration of a liberal share of the claim, the McDowells and James Greenlee 
then undertook to assist in carrying out Borden 's contract for him, and before 
the close of the year moved their own families to the grant, where they per- 
manently settled, being the first white settlers in that part of the valley. Other 
settlers were induced to come from Pennsylvania to Borden's tract, among 
whom were many relatives of the McDowells. The country filled up rapidly. 
Good houses, schools and churches were built, roadways were constructed and 
bridges built. Settlers extended themselves over an immense tract of land 
beyond the limited range of Borden's tract, wherever the country promised 
unusual advantages of soil, or near the James River and its tributaries. Game 
abormded and the rivers were full of fish. The coiintry was beautiful, climate 
pleasant and all localities healthy. Constant intercouse was kept up with the 
old colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania, and the capital of Virginia, 
Williamsburg. 

MARY E. McDowell was a true Scotch woman, though bom in the North 
of Ireland. She emigrated to America with her father, brothers John and 
James, and sister Margaretta who married Mr. Mitchel in Pennsylvania and 
settled in South Carolina. Soon after her marriage to James Greenlee the 
memorable journey was made from Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Virginia. She 
was brave, loved adventure and was undismayed by the thought of Indians or 
wild animals with which the country was then infested. In the summer of 1757 
James Greenlee left his wife with a young family around her and went to Penn- 
sylvania on a business trip. He was taken suddenly ill and died there at the 
home of Mr. Femme, or Fane. After the death of her husband she brought up 
her children under the watchful eye of her father, until he died. She then re- 
moved from Timber Ridge in the lower part of Rockbridge County to James 
River. James Greenlee had ovraed immense tracts of land on James River and 
in North Carolina. She increased her fortune rapidly and was able to set up her 
sons and daughters handsomely in life when they married, retaining a handsome 
estate for herself. 

She was remarkably handsome in youth and retained her activity, veracity 
and great wit to the last days of her life. The stories that are told of her son 
Samuel's wit and recklessness are remarkable. The "witch story" may be 
traced to his love of the marvellous almost entirely. Mrs. Greenlee told the 
stories first herself, and once in the hands of her reckless son, from his very 
boyhood days, they were scattered over the land with many additions. For 
instance, he told a party of Methodist ministers that his mother had been tried 
and condemned to be burnt as a "witch," and that she was tied to a stake 
and wood and straw piled around her, when lo ! she disappeared and a black 
cat was found in her place. The ministers stared and Samuel ran to his mother 
and told her how he had frightened off a party of "long faces" and "black 
coats" who were on their way to be entertained at her house. The mother only 
laughed at the reckless boy and said "My son, 0, my son ! do you not know that 
it is a sin to tell a lie ?" Mrs. Greenlee told the story of her father having been 
called a wizard by the ignorant and superstitious, by reason of his strength of 



JAMES OP VIRGINIA. , 223 

intellect and great physical endiirance, and finally his extreme old age. When 
she was getting along in years, she concluded she needed glasses and accordingly 
procured a pair and thought that it improved her sight. The mischievous 
Samuel took the glasses out of the frame, had his mother put them on, then 
asked her if she could see better. "Yes," she said, "as well as ever." 
"Mother!" he cried, "there are no glasses in the frame." "You bad boy" she 
said, and throwing them aside did not use them for years. 

She charitable, hospitable and remarkably kind to and considerate of her 
slaves, whom she held in large numbers. She taught them to read and, in many 
instances, to write. She lived on James River and in the later years of her life 
her negro men were famous boatmen from a point on the river called the 
"Boatyard" to Lj-nchburg, thence to Richmond. They were proverbial for 
honesty and iiprightness in every sense of the word. They were trusted with 
valuable cargoes for which they received the money and delivered it to the 
owners of said cargoes without trouble or question on the part of any who 
trusted cargoes with them. 

She lived to be very old, giving to the last an active supervision to business, 
in which she was thrifty and prosperous, and riding all over the country side 
on horseback. Her strength of mind rivalled her physical endurance. Long 
after the early settlers of her generation had passed away, and litigations arose 
among their descendants over lands claimed, she would ride miles on horseback 
to appear as a witness to settle the claims. Such was her knowledge of the early 
settlers and the land they settled on, and such was the accuracy of her memory, 
that her testimony invariably decided the case in favor of the rightful o\vner. 
She was the first white woman who settled on Borden's Grant. 

[Prom History of Augusta County, Virginia, by J. L. Peyton] 

In the Burden ease, Mrs. Greenlee underwent, in 1806, a long examination, 
testing her temper and memory. In the midst of her examination the question 
was put to her, ' ' How old are you ? ' ' She tartly replied, ' ' Ninety-five the 17th 
of this instant: and why do you ask me my age? Do you think I am in my 
dotage?" Her deposition which follows, cannot fail to be read with interest. 
It casts some light upon her early days, supplies valuable information as to the 
early settlers, their manners and customs, and has not inaptly been styled the 
comer-stone of our history. 



DEPOSITION OP MRS. GREENLEE 

Taken November 10, 1806, in the Suit of Joseph Burden, Plaintiff, vs. Alex. 

Cueton and Others, Defendants. 

Mrs. Greenlee, being sworn, deposeth and saith : 

That she, with her husband, James Greenlee, settled on Burden's large grant, 
as near as she could recollect, in the fall of the year 1737. ♦ * * That shortly 
before her settlement on said grant, she, together with her husband, her father, 
Ephraim jMcDowell. then a very aged man, and her brother John McDowell, 
were on their way to Beverly Manor, and were advanced as far as Lewis's 
Creek, intending to stop at South River, having, at that time, never heard of 



224 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Burden's tract. That she remembers of her brother, James, having, the spring 
before, gone into said i\Ianor and raised a crop of corn on South River, about 
Turks, near what she called Wood's Gap. That about the time they were strik- 
ing up their camp in the evening, Benj. Burden, the elder, came to their camp 
and proposed staying all night. In the course of conversation, said Burden 
informed them that he had about 10,000 acres of land on the waters of the James 
River, or the forks, if he could ever find it, and proposed giving 1,000 acres to 
any one who would conduct him to it. When a light was made he produced two 
papers, and satisfied the Company of his rights. The deponent 's brother, John 
McDowell, then informed him, said Burden, that he would conduct him to the 
forks of James River for 1.000 acres ; showed said Burden his surveying instru- 
ments, etc., and finally it was agreed that said McDowell should conduct him to 
the grant, and she thinks a memorandum of the house of John Lewis, in Beverly 
Manor, near where Staunton now stands, who was a relation of Deponent's 
father. They remained with him a few days, and there, she understood, further 
writings were entered into, and it was finally agreed that they should all settle 
in Burden's tract. That said John McDowell was to have 1,000 acres for con- 
ducting them there, agreeable to the writing entered into, and that the settlers 
were, moreover, to have 100 acres for very cabin they should build, even if they 
built forty cabins, and that they might purchase any quantity adjoining at fifty 
shillings per hundred acres. The deponent understood that said Burden was in- 
terested in these cabin rights, as they were called, for that any cabin saved him 
1,000 acres of land. These cabin rights were afterward counted, as deponent 
understood, and an account returned to the government, then held at Williams- 
burg, and she has heard, about that time, many tests of the manner in which one 
person, by going from cabin to cabin, was counted, and stood for several 
settlements. 

She recollects, particularly, of hearing of a serving girl of one James Bell, 
named IMillholen, who dressed herself in men's clothes and saved several cabin 
rights, perhaps five or six, calling herself Millhollen, but varying the Christian 
name. These conversations were current in that day. She knows nothing of the 
fact but from information. She imderstood that it was immaterial where the 
cabins were built ; that they were to entitle the builder to 100 acres as aforesaid, 
whenever he chose to lay it off, and that he had a right to purchase, at 50 
shillings as aforesaid, any larger quantity. One John Patterson was employed 
to count cabin rights, as she understood. He was accustomed to mark the letters 
on his hat with chalk as she had been informed, and afterwards deliver the 
accoimt to her brother, John McDowell, and remembers to have heard that her 
brother had expressed his surprise at so many people by the name of ^Millhollen 
being settled on the land, but which was afterwards explained by the circum- 
stance of the servant girl above mentioned, and was a subject of general mirth 
in the settlement. She does not know whether this plan of saving several cabin 
rights by one person appearing at different cabins, was suggested by Burden, 
the elder, or not. She understood that every person saving a cabin right got 
160 acres for each right so saved, as he, Burden, was to have a cabin for every 
1,000 acres. Wlien the party with which she traveled, as aforesaid, came, as 
they supposed, into the grant, they stopped at a spring, near where David Steele 
now lives, and struck their camp, her brother and said Burden having gone 



JAMES OF YIRGINL\ 225 

down said branch until they were satisfied it was one of the waters of the James 
River. The balance of the party remained at that spring until her brother John 
and Burden, as she understood, went down to the forks formed by the waters 
of the South and North Rivers, and having taken a course through the country, 
returned to said camp. They then went on to the place called the Red House, 
where her brother John built a cabin and settled where James McDowell now 
li\res. The first cabin her husband built was by a spring, near where Andrew 
Scott now lives, but when deponent went to see it, she did not like the situation, 
and they then built and settled at the place called Bro\\Tis. They sold this after 
some short time, and purchased the land on which her brother, James, had made 
an improvement, now called Templetons, and where she resided until about the 
year 1780, being within sight of her father, then near a hundred years of age, 
resided. This was the first party of white people that ever settled on the said 
grant. The said Burden, the elder, remained on the grant from that time, as 
well as she can recollect for perhaps two years and more, obtaining settlers, and 
she believes there were more than a hundred settlers before he left them. She 
believes he was in the grant the whole time from his first coming up until he 
left it before his death, but how long before his death he left it, she does not 
know. He resided sometime with a Mrs. Hunter, whose daughter afterwards 
married a Greene, and to whom, she understood, he gave the tract whereon 
they lived. When the said Burden left the grant, she understood he left his 
papers with John McDowell, to whose house a great many people resorted, as she 
understood, to see about lands, but what authority her brother had to sell, or 
whether he made sales or not, she does not know. Her brother, John, was killed 
about Xmas before her son, Samuel, her first son of that name was born. He was 
born, as appears by the register of his birth in the Bible, about April, 1743. The 
date of this register is partly obliterated, in the last figure, but from the date of 
the birth of the preeeeding and subsequent child it must have been, as she 
believes, in 1743, that said Samuel was born. 

Young Benjamin Burden came into the grant before her brother's death. 
She recollects this from the circumstance of his being then in ordinary plight, 
and such that he did not seem much respected by her brother's wife, and when 
she afterwards married him she could not but reflect on the change of circum- 
stances. She understood that he was altogether illiterate. She said, Benjamin, 
junior, lived with her brother John, whilst in the grant, but returned to his 
father's before the death of said John, and after his father's death returned, 
fully empowered by his father's will to complete titles and sell lands, and then 
married the widow of her said brother, and continued to live at the place where 
her said brother settled as aforesaid, until his death. This place, now called 
the Red Place, is about three quarters of a mile from Templeton's, where the 
deponent resided as above. 

Joseph Burden (a son of old Ben. Burden, the grantee), had resided at his 
brother, Benjamin's, some years before his, (Benjamin's) death; had gone to 
school and was here at his death ; had the small pox at about the time of her 
brother's death, and some time after (deponent does not recollect precisely, but 
believes it was not long) he went away, not being very well liked, as she under- 
stood and not made very welcome; was then but a lad of about 18 or 19, as well 
as she can recollect from his appearance. This deponent recollects that John 



226 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Hart, who had removed to Beverly Manor some short time before the removal 
of this deponent and her friend, as above stated, but she cannot say whether 
he surveyed for the said Benjamin or not ; she understood he was a surveyor. 
The people who first settled and purchased did not always have their lands 
surveyed at the time of purchase ; as she understood, some had their lands sur- 
veyed and some had not, but when it was not surveyed they described it by 
general boundaries. Beatty was the first surveyor that she knows who sur- 
veyed in the grant. The said Burden had been at Williamsburg, and some one, 
perhaps the Governor's son-in-law, by name Needier, and his other partners, had 
in a frolic given him their interest in said grant. She understood that there 
were four of them, the Governor, Gooeh, his said son-in-law, and two others 
whose names she does not recollect, who were interested in the order of Council 
for said land, and that Burden got it from them as above ; this was his infor- 
mation. She well recollects that her brother, John, assisted one Wood to make 
the survey of said large grant after they removed to it, as aforesaid, it being at 
the time of their removal, as aforesaid, held by the order of Council, as she 
understood. The said Woods and her brother made the survey she believes, 
after the cabin rights were taken in, as above stated. Many people came up, 
and many cabins and settlements were made immediately after their selling on 
the tract, as aforesaid. 

Being interrogated as to the value of the lands remaining unsold by Ben. 
Burden, she stated that one Harden, who, she understood, was an executor, and 
who was in this country after the death of young Ben. Burden (which occurred 
from small-pox in 1753), and after John Bow.ver had married the widow, and 
who, she understood, was settling Burden's business — but she does not know 
by what authority — she recollects that said Burden offered to her brother, 
James, the unsold land for a bottle of wine, if he would clear him of the quit 
rents. She also recollects that her brother consulted with her father about the 
proposition, who advised him to have nothing to do Avith it, for it would prob- 
ably run him into fail. This she thinks was shortly after Bowyer's marriage. 
She does not know whether Ben. Burden, Jr., was distressed on account of the 
quit rents or not, but recollects that shortly before his death. Col. Patton was at 
her house ; a horse of said Burden broke out and came there, which said Patten 
wished to have caught, that he might take him for some claim against Burden, 
but she did not hear what. She had, however, said horse sent home, fearing that, 
as there had been some misunderstanding between deponent 's husband and said 
Burden about this land, he might think they had aided in said seizure. The 
deponent further states that her husband purchased 1,000 acres of land of old 
Burden, at an early day for fifty shillings per hundred, which she understood 
he had located on the Tiirkey Hill, as it was called. After the death of old 
Burden, his son, Benjamin, disputed giving a deed for the whole quantity there, 
alleging it was all valuable land, and afterwards for the sake of peace, it was 
agreed that a part should be taken there, a part adjoining Robert Cutton, which 
was sold to one Buchanan, and a part near John Davidson. This arrangement 
was made at the time Harden was present, as aforesaid, who seemed willing to 
give the land, and advised his deponent, whose husband was then abroad, to 
agree to take it at those places, which she did. All the land purchased by her 
husband was purchased from old Burden; indeed, he had purchased this 1,000 



II 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 227 

acres before they eame to the tract; at Lewis', as before stated, provided he 
liked the land when he saw it, which he did. 

The deponent being asked what she knew of the persons named in a muti- 
lated paper purporting to be an account of entries and sales, beginning at "No. 
1 — McDowell, Jno., to No. 22 — Moore, Andrew," on the first side, where the 
paper appears to be torn off; beginning on the other side at "No. 42 — Martin, 
Robert, and ending at No. 62, at Brown, Robt.," and whether those persons were 
settled in the grant at an early day or owned lands in it ? 

Answered — That she knew a number of persons therein named, many of 
them lived in Beverly Manor, and others in the calf pasture and elsewhere, but 
she did not know many of them to have lands in Burden's tract. The Mc- 
Dowells and her husband she had before spoken of. She also knew John Moore 
who settled at an early date where Chas. Campbell now lives; Andrew j\Ioore 
who settled where his grandson, Wm. Moore now lives. Wm. McCausland also 
lived in the grant, as did Wm. Sawyers and Robert Campbell, Sam'l Woods, 
John ilathews, Richard Woods, John Hays, Chas. Hays, his son, Sam'l Walker, 
etc. all of whom settled in the grant at an early day. 

The deponent being interrogated if she knew Alex. Miller, and if he was au 
early settler? 

Answered — that she did not know said Miller. He was the first blacksmith 
that settled on the tract. She recollects of his shoeing old Burden 's horse, and 
she understood he purchased land of said Burden. He lived on land adjoining 
one John McCroskey's land, who also purchased his land from old Burden. 
He also joined the plantation now Stewart's mill place, as she believes, whereon 
one Taylor, who, she believes, married Elizabeth Paxton, formerly lived. She 
recollects being at the burial of said Taylor, who was killed by the falling of a 
tree not long after his marriage. Said Miller's land, she understood, has been in 
possession of people by the name of Teeford since the said Miller removed. The 
deponent recollects one McMuUen, who resided some distance above the place 
where Robt. Stewart's mill now stands, but up the same branch and near a 
spring. Said McMullen was living on said land and had a daughter married 
there when this deponent 's daughter, Mary, was a sucking babe. She recollects 
this from having gone to the wedding when a daughter of said McMullen was 
married and having left her child at home. Her daughter, Mary, was born, as 
appears from the register of her birth, in May, 1745. Humphrey's cabins, as 
they were called, were over the hill, at another spring not far from where said 
McMullen lived. She knows not from whom McMullen purchased, but rather 
thinks her brother, James McDowell, gave him a piece of land there for teaching 
school. There was no mill where Stewart's mill now is in the lifetime of Ben. 
Burden, Jr. John Hay's mill was the first mill in the grant, and built very early 
after the settlement. 

The deponent says the people paid no quit rents for two years from the 
time the grant was first settled. She understood this exemption was granted by 
the Governor at the instance of one Anderson, a preacher. When they had to 
pay quit rents, they raised money by sending butter to New Castle, to Williarm- 
burg, and other markets below, and got also in return their salt, iron, etc. 

Being asked whether Joseph Burden was frequently in this country aft<.i' 
the death of young Ben. Burden, she answered that he was frequently in this 



228 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

country some time after the death of said Benjamin. He called at her house 
inquiring for a horse, and she thought she knew his name, and afterwards heard 
that he lodged in the neighborhood at one "William Campbell's. She saw him 
again at her house about twelve or fifteen years ago. He made some inquiries 
of her about her husband's estate or something of that kind. She does not recol- 
lect the particulars, but she had very little conversation with him. She also 
heard of his being through the country some time before this, but does not 
recollect how long, nor did she see him. 

Question by the defendant's agent — Did not many persons, from time to 
time, in the lifetime of old Burden, settle in the grant, under the expectation of 
getting the lands at their usual price, and without first contradicting with said 
Burden ? 

Answer — I believe they did. I think many settled before they had an oppor- 
tunity of seeing Burden, and Burden would frequently direct them to deponent's 
husband, to show them the land, as they said. 

Do you not believe that the first deeds were made for cabin rights ? 

Answer — I suppose the cabin right, with such land as the settler purchased, 
would be deeded together, and perhaps these were the first made. 

Did Ben. Burden, Jr., appear, when he first entered on the affairs of the 
estate, to be disposed to do justice to the devisees? 

Answer — I thought he did. He appeared to be a good man. She understood 
he was heir-at-law and did not hear of the sister's claims, except to five thous- 
and acres, which she understood had been assigned to them on Catawba, where 
the land was good. 

Did he ever leave his country and go to Jersey, after he came up and got 
married ? 

Answer — No, I believe he did not. I am pretty confident he did not. 

Did you know of Archibald Alexander and Magdalen Bowyer selling lands 1 

Answer — I did not know they were executors, and had a right to sell. I 
understood John Bowyer sold a great deal and gave away a great deal. Alex- 
ander was as respectable a man as any I knew. Bowyer, she understood, claim 
that Ben. Burden claimed, though she had no conversation with him about this 
claim. 

Being asked whether Alexander paid Burden any money on account of the 
estate 1 

Answered — She never heard that he had, and from her intimacj' with the 
wife of said Bowyer, she believes she would have heard of it, had it taken place. 

Question by same — When Burden produced his right to the land, as you have 
stated, were you not satisfied, and did not the Company appear satisfied that the 
right was completely in him ? 

Answer — Yes, the papers appeared perfectly satisfactory. 

Did you not understand that your brother, James McDowell, built a cabin 
and purchased the land where Thos. Taylor, above mentioned resides 1 

Answer — My brother, James, purchased a considerable tract, perhaps four or 
five hundred acres, either at or where Stewart's mill now stands. It run, as she 
understood, on a large hill, but whether in one or two tracts she does not know. 
This tract, she understood, he sold to some person, but does not know who to. 
She does not know whether he had it surveyed or not, but suppose it was merely 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA 229 

designated by general boundaries. She thinks if she was on the land, she could 
point out the tree whereon his name was cut, if it is j'et standing. It stood near 
a deep hole in the creek. Knows not how he acquired and saved a cabin right, 
but never saw the cabin, nor does she know where it stood, but the land was 
called his very shortly after they went to the grant, and in the lifetime of old 
Burden.

JAMES GREENLEE came to Surrey County, North Carolina from Virginia, 
before the Revolutionary war. He bought a fine farm on the Dan River but sold 
it again and went to Morganton, Burke County. He owned all the best lands 
about Morganton. His possessions are now divided into more than half a 
dozen fine farms. Besides this he owned lands in Yancey, Mitchell and Ruther- 
ford counties, and two fine farms in Turkey Cove; also land on the Catawba 
River where his son David Washington settled, is now divided into five good 
farms. He also owned fine lands near Memphis, Tennessee. He was a cattle 
raiser and the Catawba bottoms were green with cane and the hollows were 
knee-deep in wild pea vines. He drove his fat cattle to Philadelphia and to 
Charleston, South Carolina, for sale. He owned a great many slaves. While he 
was absent from home during the Revolutionary war the tories robbed him of 
stock and grain, and took off a female servant, which was all the help Mrs.

Greenlee had on the place. While he was in camp, the Tories killed his stock, 
wasted his grain, and feasted on beef, mutton and honey. They heard that 
Colonel Campbell was coming and hurried off uncermoniously. The servant 
was secreted by a kind neighbor while the Tories were travelling several miles 
away, and was sent back. 

James Greenlee was a business man, public and private. He said he could 
never write a deed to convey land from him, but could write one to himself. He 
never sold land, but bought all the good land that he could. He settled his six 
sons on good farms, all of them within a day's ride from home. His six sons 
settled their own matters without any lawsuits. He was Land Inspector in 
North Carolina and Tennessee ; member of North Carolina Convention in 1788. 
In politics, he was a Whig ; in religion, Presbyterian.

JAMES GREENLEE lived on the farm which had been owned by his father 
and was patented by King George III of England before the Revolutionary war. 
This farm contained eight hundred and fifty-five acres, located on the south side 
of James River, about two hundred miles from Richmond, at the mouth of 
Arnold 's valley situated between two spurs of the Blue Ridge mountains. The 
farm was a very productive and valuable one, containing a great deal of river 
bottom. There was a public ferry there which is still maintained and known 
as Greenlees Ferry. The patent was parchment and remained in the family until 
the place was sold. Mr. Greenlee was fording the stream about a quarter of a 
mile below his residence, was riding one horse and leading another. The horse 
he was riding stumbled, and the one he was leading jerked back and pulled 
him off and he was drovnied before assistance could reach him.

DAVID GREENLEE had little opportunity for gaining an education; yet 
through the use of his library and periodicals he was unusually well posted in 
history, geography, science and current events. He was noted for his familarity 
with the sacred scriptures, being a veritable walking concordance. He was a 
Presbyterian; in politics, a Whig; resided at Clover Hill farm, Rockbridge 
Coimty, Virginia. 

HANNAH GRIGSBY GREENLEE had just finished her education at Ann 
Smith Academy, Lexington, Virginia, when she was married. She knew little or 
nothing about household duties but applied herself with such energy thereto 
that she was soon mistress of every detail, and was a reference for all her 
neighbors. The sons inherited her love of adventure. 

ELISHA GRIGSBY GREENLEE, soon after he left home, joined a filibiister- 
ing expedition under Lopez, and went to Cuba to accomplish what the United 
States has recently done. He escaped to Tampa, Florida, on a little steamer, 
closely chased by a Spanish man-of-war. He had lost all his wardrobe. He 
worked his way by driving a wood wagon, then as a hand on the railroad, then 
as conductor, and in this way made enough money to get back to Rockbridge. 
After this he took a college and medical course, followed his profession a while, 
then merchandised in Lynchburg. Virginia. Then he went on board the 
Viseal to London, his mother thinking him in Lj-nchburg till she got a letter 
from him dated London. When the Rebellion broke out all of the boys hastened 
to the front. He joined the Second Kentucky regiment as surgeon, the other 
four joined the First Virginia Cavalrj- under Colonel J. E. B. Stuart. There 
was not a raid, however dangerous, nor a battle in which Stuart's cavalry was 
engaged, in which most of them did not participate. Elisha was captured at 
Fort Donaldson, and for two years was a prisoner at Fort Douglas, when he 
was exchanged. After the war he went to Mississippi. He was of bright and 
cheerful disposition and had fine conversational powers.

Pennsj'lvania regiment in which there were four Greenlees. He was confined in 
Fort Delaware until the close of the war. 

HENRIETTA JANE LEWIS (GREENLEE) BURNLEY was a native of 
Rockbridge Coiuitj'. She was possessed of excellent sense and uncommon reso- 
lution and self-reliance, very decided convictions of religious truth, positive 
and uncompromising opposition to all that was unseemly in its professors, and 
to the utmost of her opportunity and means liberal in her contributions toward 
the propagation of the truth as it is in Christ. Her married life was a happy 
one. She and her husband lived in singular unity of counsel and harmony of 
action for thirty-eight years until his death about six month previous to hers. 
It can truthfully be said that but few have lived in Albermarle County for 
better purpose, or have left more wholesome impress for good than this couple.

DAVID WASHINGTON GREENLEE was the owner of a large plantation 
along the Catawba river in McDowell and adjoining counties of North Carolina, 
beautifully situated and beautifully kept by a troop of stalwart slaves. He 
came to Greenlee, North Carolina about 1814 or 1815. Though fine timbers were 
on every side there were few sawmills. He hauled some of the lumber for his 
house twenty miles. Travel at that time was by stage and private carriage, and 
those who lived on public roads had to keep travellers. His house always had 
guests coming or going. The nearest markets were Charleston and Augusta, 
and twice a year wagons were sent to one place or the other for supplies. It was 
a three weeks trip. Indians were not troublesome then though they often came 
through in large numbers. Wild game was in abundance — deer, bear, turkey 
and squirrels — and it was easy to keep supplied with fresh meat. Mr. Greenlee 
was a Whig; in religion, Presbyterian. He is remembered by older people 
through the region as presenting the best type of the generous, chivalric, court- 
eous, olden time southern gentleman.

HANNAH MeCLANAHAN (GREENLEE) DAVIDSON will be remembered 
as a model wife and mother, and as a woman of most lovely character. Her 
uniform cheerfulness, her kindness of heart and of manner, her patience, 
courage, fidelity to duty and other kindred virtues were recognized and ap- 
preciated by all who knew her. Her experience called for their exercise for 
she had knovm much sorrow. The mother of six sons, she saw them and her 
husband buried. Three of her sons lost their lives in battle for their country. 

JAMES DORMAN DAVIDSON completed his education at Washington 
College, and soon began the practice of law in connection with his uncle. General 
Charles P. Dorman. He rose rapidly in his profession, and for more than fifty 
years practiced with a zeal which amounted to enthusiasm, and with such, 
diligence and ability as deserved and achieved great eminence and success. He 
was a warm friend of education, and as a member of the Board of Trustees of 
Washington and Lee University, as well as a private citizen, he always mani- 
fested great interest in this cause. As a man he was generous and kind, and 
charitable in word and deed, and he relieved the necessities of the poor with 
unstinted benevolence. 

GREENLEE DAVIDSON entered Washington College in September 1852 
and took the degree of M. A. in June, 1855. In 1855-56 he was a law student 
at the University of Virginia, the study of which he completed at the "Lexing- 
ton Law School" under the tuition of Judge John W. Brokenbrough, in June, 
1857. He at once commenced the practice of his profession in connection with 
his father, whose practice was one of the largest in the upper Valley. To the 
duties of his profession proper, he united the labors of a Master in Chancery. 
The records of both the courts of Rockbridge abound with evidence of his in- 
dustry, fidelity and ability. At this period of his career the Civil war com- 
menced. In May, 1861, Governor John Letcher, who had known him from his 
childhood, tendered him the post of Aide-de-Camp with the rank of Lieutenant 



242 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Colonel of Cavalry, the duties of which office he discharged with zeal and 
ability, until February, 1862. Conscientiously impressed that it was his duty 
to go to the field, he, during the fall of 1861 and the winter of 1862, raised and 
equipped the "Letcher Light Artillery" of which he was elected Captain. Li 
February, 1862, his resignation as Aide-de-Camp was reluctantly accepted by 
the governor, and he entered upon his career of active soldier life. His battery 
was assigned to A. P. Hill's Division, Stonewall Jackson's Corps, and was first 
brought into action on Wednesday evening, the 26th of June, 1862, at 
Mechanicsville. This was the beginning of that great seven days' fight which 
culminated in Malvern Hill on the 2nd of July. From day to day he was en- 
gaged during that terrible conflict. It was, however, at Malvern Hill that his 
battery acted the most conspicuous part. His company was engaged at Cedar 
Mountain, Warrenton Springs, the second Manassas; participated in the en- 
suing Maryland campaign; was greatly distinguished at the capture of Harper's 
Ferry; under A. P. Hill was conspicuous in the contest at Boteter's Mill during 
the re-crossing of the Potomac ; and on the 23rd of December, 1862, closed the 
service of that eventful year at the great battle of Fredericksburg. With the 
exception of skirmishing along the lines, the Army of Northern Virginia had 
no serious engagement from the 23rd of December, 1862, until the 2nd of May, 
1863. The campaign opened with Chancellorsville, a name deeply engraved 
upon the memory of the people of the Valley, and especially of the citizens of 
Eockbridge. On the 2nd of May the Letcher Artillery was conspicuously en- 
gaged. The battle Avas renewed on the 3rd, and victory was virtually won. 
The artillery was ordered to the rear to re-supply its expended ammunition, and 
an infantry charge was ordered to complete the rout of the enemy. Captain 
Davidson, under the inspiration of a soldier's pride and forgetful of personal 
danger, leaving his wearied company resting in the rear, returned with the 
infantry charge to the fighting line. His death wound was the result. 

FREDERICK DAVIDSON was educated at Washington College, and from 
there marched with the first contingent of troops that afterward formed the 
Stonewall Brigade. He fell at the first battle of Manassas. 

COLONEL CHARLES ANDREW DAVIDSON was educated at the Vir- 
ginia ^lilitary Institute, a graduate of the class of 1860. The beginning of 
hostilities foimd him pursuing his study of law at the University of Virginia, 
from which place he proceeded directly to the army. This prompt action was 
characteristic of the man as his after-life testified. He was commissioned by 
Governor Letcher a Lieutenant in the regular forces of Virginia, and assigned 
to the First Battalion, a command famed for bravery and hard fighting. He, 
with his troops were in the struggle from Manassas to Appomattox. As com- 
mander of the Irish Batallion in the Army of Northern Virginia, he was one of 
the immortal band that surrendered with Lee at Appomattox. 

He became eminent in his profession, and a leading citizen of Lexington. 
He was a member of the town council, a bank director, president of the old and 
historic Franklin Society, a literary association second to none in membership 
and scholarly attainments in the Commonwealth, an honored member of the 
Masonic fraternity, a leader in the Alumni of the Virginia Military Institute, a 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 243 

foremost representative of the community in public and social hospitality and 
withal liberal in charity and benevolence. 

WILLIAM WEAVER DAVIDSON volunteered in the Letcher Artillery 
■when he was a mere lad. A severe attack of camp fever unfitted him for active 
service. At the close of the war he entered the Virginia Military Institute, but 
had to leave before he had completed his course, on account of ill health.

cotton then valued at one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The Union 
troops camped on the premises and destroyed everything they could not carry 
away. The family was left in destitute circumstances, with nothing but the 
farm, and most of the fencing destroyed. Mr. Davis lived only a few years 
after the war. After his death the family had a difficult struggle as the children 
were small and could not be of much assistance for several years. In politics 
he was a Democrat ; in religion, Presbyterian, then Methodist.

JAMES SAMUEL GREENLEE 'S earliest recollection was of a fight he had 
with his teacher who whipped him for not studying his A B C 's. He did not 
want to go to school, but wanted to learn a trade as his taste was for mechanics. 
However his mother was ambitious that the boys should become professional 
men, and designed James for a preacher, and her will was law. So he went to 
school under protest until about seventeen years of age, when he realized the 
error of his position and began to desire an education with a view to the minis- 
try. In 1858 he graduated from Washington College (now Washington Uni- 
versity), Lexington, Virginia. After teaching school for one year he entered 
the Theological Seminary at Prince Edward. In 1861, before the close of the 
session, he left the Seminary to enter the army, and served almost constantly 
until the surrender. Twice his horse was shot from under him, and once a bul- 
let passed through his clothes. After the close of the war he returned to the 
Theological Seminary to complete his interrupted studies ; but soon his depleted 
finances forced him to again leave the Seminary and engage in teaching, which 
occupation he followed in Virginia and JIarj'land until 1870, when he emigrated 
to Kansas, taking up a homestead in Marion County. In 1876 he removed to 
Stephens County, Texas, where he received an appointment as Deputy County 
Surveyor of Stephens County, which he held until October, 1879, then removed 
to Trenton, Tennessee. He afterward returned to Texas and settled in New 
Lebanon County. In 1883 he was licensed to preach by the presbytery in 



248 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Temple, Texas, and until within the last few years has been teaching and 
preaching in different localities in Texas. He has since lived on a farm near 
Alvin, Texas. In politics, he was a Whig, then Democrat.

JAMES HERVEY GREENLEE spent his youthful days on his father's 
farm, with the exception of the time he was in school which was very irregular. 
His parents had a place near Morganton, then the county seat of Burke County, 
where they spent a portion of their time, and then he attended school. When 
his parents went to their Turkey Cove farm he was left alone with the servants 
in order to pursue his studies. Thus he spent many weeks with not another 
white person around him, but he was always carefully watched over by the 
servants. It was finally concluded that he was too young to be left alone, so 
from then on his schooling suffered many interruptions. He afterward attended 
Washington College at Lexington, "Virginia, where he remained fifteen months, 
then returned to his father's farm, which he managed for a share of the pro- 
ducts. After two years spent in this capacity, he was given a farm by his 
father, but continued to make his home with his parents as long as they lived. 
Having been reared in a grand old southern home noted for kindness and hos- 
pitality, where not only friends and relatives but also strangers received a 
welcome, he grew up with those ideas and principles, and when he established a 
home of his own the latch string was always out. 

In 1861 Mr. Greenlee was a delegate to the state convention that took North 
Carolina out of the Union. While he did not approve of this act, thinking that

there might be a better plan, still when his state went that way he went with 
her and did his part to help prepare for the conflict. Of slaves and slavery he 
had the following to say : "I had over thirty slaves — all good and faithful. I 
would often leave things in their charge and they took good care. Some could 
read and write a tolerably legible hand, and keep ordinary accounts. Some 
were members of the church, and I would gather them together on a Sabbath, 
read to them and instruct them about the future and their responsibility to 
their Maker. Some were impressed, others seemed unmoved. In this part of 
the country slaves were well treated, fed, and clothed. There was probably 
some rigid treatment where there were large numbers on a plantation, and 
where it required rigid treatment to keep all straight and in their places. I 
do not think emancipation has been such a boon for the colored race in this 
land. What would they have been in their native land — Africa ? I never was a 
great advocate of slavery, but I believe that the question of slavery, if justice 
and righteousness had ruled, could have been more satisfactorily adjusted, 
without the loss of the thousands of precious lives and the millions of money." 
The following is a copy of a letter written to Mr. Greenlee while absent 
from home, by his chief slave: 

"Turkey Cove, March 24, 1865. 
Master — Sir : 

I will write you a few lines to let you know that we are all well at present, 
except George; he is complaining some since he came home. I started the 
wagon the 14th of this month with a load to you what I thought they could 
haul, but they broke down before they got to the river and then was water- 
boTind for several days and had to come home and started again last Monday 
from home and met George there. He went to Muddy Creek and came back 
and said that he was not well enough to take the wagon on and John went in 
his place, and Tag is working in John's place. I do not know what they 
hauled. I sent 53 pieces of bacon to Miss Sallie, weighed 900 lbs., 22 hams, 12 
shoulders, 13 midlings. I reckon John and Madison took what they thought 
they could get along with. Last Wednesday, the 22nd, the Tories came and 
paid us another visit, but as Providence would have it, they got nothing. They 
came at noon day. Jiff and Isaac were hauling some wood with the black mare 
and Jinny and I had borrowed Milford Huskins mule to haul with that day and 
had hauled a few loads ; when they came we were loosing out to feed and they 
run to the stable and made Isaac take out the mare and mule and they mounted 
them with the gears on and took Isaac with them. Threw down the fence and 
went up through the new ground up Pinks Branch, but Captain Gilliam hap- 
pened to be at the old store with a few men when the alarm was made and they 
followed them and fired on them in the Tobacco patch. The Tories jumped off 
their horses let them and Isaac all go and cleared themselves. The same even- 
ing the same scamps went to Hallefield and took his mare out of the plough, 
then went to his father's and took his saddle and his boy's hat and went on. I 
did not see them at all. I was at the mill and saw the men run up from the 
store and I ran up to the house to see what was on foot. But the Tories were 
gone. They came in on the blind side of us. This time they came down the 
ridge to the shops. Liander and Carson were there at work at their wagon 



250 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

wheels and the first thing they knew were at the shops. Elijah Waeaster was 
in the crowd as guide for them through the mountains; some of them were 
there before. I do not know what we will do. We can't do nothing here for 
the Tories. If our horses had been at home they would have taken them all 
if those men had not been there. Capt. Carson has come back with some of 
his men, but they are in the North Cove and there is no man guarding in the 
Turkey Cove at all. I would be very glad if you would come home and see 
about things. K. C. Burgess was here some time ago and wanted to know the 
amount of pork we killed. Some person ought to come and take the tallig off 
the bacon before the Tories steal it. I do not know what we will do. I must 
close saying that you must do the best you can and we will do the same. All 
the black people send "howdy" at you and the children Charles, Emeline, Alvin 
and Mariah. Farewell, in haste, I remain as ever. 

WARWICK GREENTjEE. ' ' 

Addressed to 

Mr. James H. Greenlee, 
Davidson College, N. C." 

The slaves were all very much attached to Mr. Greenlee and after they 
were free would always visit him when they came near. 

Mr. Greenlee was an elder in the Presbyterian church for sixty years, from 
August 30, 1845. He was one of the principal contributors in building and sup- 
porting Turkey Cove Church, organized May 30, 1886. He gave liberally of 
his means to all religious causes, both home and foreign. The furnishing of a 
room in the new Seminary at Richmond dedicated to his mother was among the 
last of his benefactions. 

Physically robust, he was more so mentally and when in congenial company 
was interesting and instructive in his conversation. He retained all his facul- 
ties and was only troubled during his last years by dulness of the sense of 
hearing. He was blessed with wonderful eyesight and memory, was very 
studious and spent the greater part of his later life in reading. 

In the summer of 1904, he with his son and family took quite an extensive 
mountain trip, very tedious and rough, but he was in remarkable spirits and 
pronounced the affair one of the most enjoyable of all his life. He had plan- 
ned another for the following year and had engaged his drivers and cook. 

Although well read, interested and in touch with public matters he did not 
participate therein, other than in the capacity of a sturdy citizen. He was a 
very active man and always transacted his business in person. It was while 
he was on a trip to Johnson City to buy horses that he was stricken with 
paralysis, but he retained his mental faculties unclouded until a few hours- 
before the end. He died in his 94th year at his Turkey Cove farm, within 
sight of the place where he first saw the light. 

There are two striking things to mark his character. First his determination 
to do right. If a thing seemed right in his mind it was marked for accomplish- 
ment and the whole force of his indomitable will and wonderful vitality was 
brought to bear upon it. The other was his deep reverence for God, for his 
house, his worship, his service. When he was too ill to make himself under- 
stood by those who watched him, he could be heard to utter one continual

prayer. He lived the "simple life" in its truest sense and left an impress and 
example which appeals to all good men even in the rush and turmoil of modern 
progress. 

IIARY JANE GREENLEE was received into the Presbyterian Church of 
S'eloan, of which her parents were members, in September, 1846, and from that

many under the tuition of the leading physicians of the day. Soon after his 
return he took charge of the Charleston Medical Journal and displayed such

JAMES McENTIRE GREENLEE was born at the old homestead, near the 
centre of what is now the village of Greenlee. While still a mere lad he was sent 
to eon his Latin and Greek at Washington and Lee University, and soon: after 
leaving college he married pretty Anne ilorris, a belle of Rutherford County. 
"Settling down" into the staid role of a gentleman farmer was a slow process. 
For the young couple life was chiefly a frolic, until the young wife died. Mr. 
Greenlee's second wife was Harriet Rice of East Charlemont, Massachusetts. A 
daughter of Puritans and of Mt. Holyoke College, she at first found it somewhat 
difficult to adapt herslf to surroundings in the South, whither she had been sent 
to nurse a sick mother, remaining afterward to teach in the Murphy neighbor- 
hood. The cloud of civil war was already upon the horizon, and her parents 
were much grieved that she should marry a slaveholder. However, when the 
storm burst she gave her support to the lost cause, though her brothers fought 
upon the other side. When the war closed Mr. Greenlee determined to mend his 
broken fortune in the gold fields of California. To go back to her old home 
among the abolitionists was a bitter draught for his wife, but was better than 
braving the horrors of reconstruction alone; so the four or five years of her 
husband's absence she spent in teaching in ^Massachusetts. It is related of her 
that she taught northern histories of the civil war with very lively note and 
comment. In her early life she had steadily contemplated life in foreign mission 
fields, but as she said she "found her work in the South." She and her two 
elder daughters were among the first southern gentlewoman to acept positions in 
the public schools. Such work had been considered menial by women of their 
social status, and the teachers hitherto employed had been greatly lacking in 
manners, morals and education. "These young Greenlees had to be taught," 
she was wont to say, as her children, with a troop of cousins, gathered about 
her, "and gradually I drifted into the other work." Her talent for teaching 
was inherited by her daughter, Harriet Eliza, who was founder of Greenlee 
School, bequeathed at her death to the Presbyterian Church. This daughter 
died in the prime of life, a sacrifice to the unsparing energy which prompted her 
to ceaseless efforts far beyond her strength.

THOMAS YOUNG GREENLEE was a great hunter in his boyhood days. 
He often went upon the mountains with his dogs at daylight, drove a big buck 
into the river, killed him and was home with him in time for breakfast. He 
would tramp the woods all day shooting squirrels and kill as many as half a 
dozen little negroes could carry home. 

In 1844 McDowell County was separated from Burke and made a new county. 
Since that time he has had more or less to do with the countj^ government and 
has held almost every office at one time or another. He served as county surveyor 
for thirty-three years and has surveyed the whole county, mountains and all. He 
has also surveyed a good deal of Burke, Yancey, ilitchell and Rutherford 
counties. He owned about seventy slaves — good and faithful servants all of 
them. Several have lived with him as renters for years. When the civil war 
broke out his oldest son came home from Davidson College and, with his brother, 
who was only seventeen years old, joined the Confederate army. The second 
son was wounded at the battle of Seven Pines and was sent home for a while, 
then taken prisoner at Petersburg and laj^ in prison six months at Point Look- 
out. The eldest son, James Logan Greenlee, was wounded at the second battle

of Manassas. We give below some interesting letters written by him while in 
camp: 

Camp near Yorktown, Va., 

April 24, 1862. 
Dear Father : — 

I suppose that you begin to think that I have been very long about writing 
home. I know that you are all anxious to hear from us. John wrote to you by 
Merit Burgin from Richmond. Since I parted from you at the head of the road, 
I have seen much, traveled far and learned much. We did not reach our regi- 
ment till Monday, two weeks precisely from leaving Marion. We were detained 
in Salisbury until Saturday morning and would not have gotten away then 
but for an extra train going to Raleigh. There are at present about 1800 
Yankee prisoners in Salisbury. It was very amusing to hear the remarks of 
some of our boys about them, such as "Why they are just like our men," 
"They are as big men as we" and such like. It took us three days to get from 
Salisbury to Raleigh. The cars run off the track on Sunday biat providentially 
no one was killed, though the cars were full of troops, and a good many were 
bruised up over the rocks and cross ties. Luckily for us, we were about midway 
the train and our car did not rim off although all before it did. When I jumped 
out of the cars the men were scrambling over each other, and such a babel of 
cursing, groaning and laughing I never heard before. We staid one night in 
Raleigh sleeping in box cars on planks. I thought then that it was a very 
hard disagreeable bed, but I have since learned that it was quite a comfortable 
place. 

We left Flemming's Company in Raleigh. John has a first rate Company 
and will make a good Captain. We came from Raleigh to Richmond in one day, 
landing in Richmond in the night. We were marched off to the quarters pre- 
pared for the Accommodation of Soldiers, the St. Charles Hotel, a large and 
capacious house (a perfect hog pen for filth and dirt) ; here we had excellent 
fare, prepaid for us. consisting of bacon, seemingly ten years old, and as strong 
as Sampson, bakers bread as porous as a sponge and peas scarcely fit to be 
given to swine, all these cooked by the ton and without washing. Those of us 
who had money boarded at the hotels and restaurants, while we staid in Rich- 
mond, which was three days and nights. Richmond is a very large city. It 
seems as if all the people in the Southern Confederacy had collected in this 
place. One may see thousands on the streets in a few hours. Nearly every man 
here is a soldier or pretends to be. For all there is so much to be seen in the 
Capital of our new-born confederacy ; yet I never was so tired of any place in my 
life. Richmond is much larger than I had any idea of. It is the dirtiest place 
(with the exception of Petersburg), that I have ever been in; it is a perfect 
den of extortion. The citizens seem to think of nothing, nothing, and care for 
nothing but cheating the poor soldiers out of their wages ; with few exceptions 
they are worse enemies to their country than the Yankees. The authorities 
would not permit us to go on to our regiments, although several trains left Rich- 
mond daily for Fredericksburg empty. We thought strange of it then, but have 
since learned the cause of our detention. The troops were at the time falling 
back from the Rapahannock. The cause of this move I do not know but suppose 

17 



258 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

that it seemed necessary in the wisdom of our Generals or it would not have been 
made. We left Richmond in the cars on Sunday and went to Ashland, 18 miles 
from Richmond. They halted us here and we staid all night in the stables. Our 
regiment landed about midnight and we joined them the next morning. We 
received marching orders that same evening and to prepare three days rations, 
but we did not march till Wednesday about one o 'clock. We were not allowed 
to take anything but what we could carry on our backs. We all shouldered our 
muskets (leaving a guard and the sick in camp), and marched off for Richmond. 
We marched that night till about nine o'clock, then halted, rolled up in our 
blankets, lay down and slept soundly until 2i/2 o'clock, when they roused us to 
continue our march. We struck out for Richmond through the mud. We got to 
Richmond at three o 'clock, having left a good many of our men on the road. I 
was extremely tired when we arrived but not quite gave out. We met with 
Capt. Neal and his recruits and Brateher Hemphill. The next morning our regi- 
ment was put on board a boat on the James River and struck down the river. 
I like steamboat traveling first rate, although I suppose it is not so pleasant rid- 
ing on the deck of a flat boat crowded with men and baggage, as it is in a good 
cabin. The scenery on James River is beautiful. The river is from two to three 
and four miles wide. We landed about 120 miles from Richmond, as soon as 
the stragglers could be collected, we struck oiit for Yorktown. This march 
headed everything I ever saw. We could get no water except out of ponds and 
puddles. We were tired out with fatigue and want of sleep. Men were falling 
out all along the road and lying down to sleep. Before we halted (which we did 
about an hour by sun in the Peninsular about two miles from Yorktown), more 
than 200 men were missing out of our regiment. I never was so tired and sleepy 
in my life. When we halted to rest at daylight, I sat down on a log beside the 
road, placed my face in my hands and went to sleep, and slept so soundly that 
the noise of another regiment passing failed to wake me, and I did not know 
that it had passed until the next day. John stood the march first rate, better 
than I had expected, and slept all day. Sunday we were ordered to the in- 
trenchment two or three miles from our camp. This was the most miserable place 
I ever saw. It is in a swamp naturally wet, but at this time flooded with water. 
At night we had to keep two-thirds of the men vij> all the time. Sunday night 
an alarm was given and we all pitched into the ditches musket in hand. It was 
dark as Egypt ; several volleys were fired into the darkness but the enemy did 
not advance. I did not fire as I had nothing to shoot at. Tuesday we returned 
to camps. We have not had any tents (except one night), since we left Ashland. 
Firing is constantly going on between our pickets and those of our enemy. A 
man or two is killed almost every day on each side. Our pickets are in sight of 
the ditches and the enemy are in sight of them. The boom of cannon is to be 
heard every few minutes of almost every day. It has become so common that the 
discharge of musketry, or the roar of the cannon is not noticed. 

I have run on writing until my paper has almost given out. John and I are 
both well at present and getting along first rate. We are getting used to camp 
life ; we left several of our boys at Ashland sick, but those who have come to us 
since say that they are all getting well. Dave Gibbs is in our mess; tell his 
folks that he and Charles are well. 

You must all write to us. Direct vour letters to Richmond, in the care of 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 259 

Capt. A. Burgin, Co. R, 22 Reg. N. C. T. My love to all at home & give my best 
respect to all my friends ; tell all to write to us. Camps are a bad place to write ; 
I have no place to write except my knee. You must write to me immediately. 
Farewell. I will write again as soon as I can. 

Your son, 

J. L. G. 

Camp near James River, 2 miles below Richmond, 

July 7, 1862. 
Dear Sister: — 

I received your letter some time since while the battles were going on. I 
have had very little time for writing before now. I wrote you a short letter 
from Richmond by David Gibbs. Since that time I saw the hardest times that I 
ever saw in my life. The most terrible fighting of the war has taken place since 
that time. I have been through every bit of it. I do not know how I have 
stood up to all the fatigue of this campaign, whilst the stoutest men have given 
way beneath it. I was determined to see it out as long as I could crawl, and the 
resolution kept me up. I suppose I have been in every battle and have come out 
unhurt. Providence must have watched over me and protected me whilst my 
friends were falling thick around. "We have whipped the Yankees, but our loss 
is heavy. Many of our best and bravest men are killed or wounded. 

We left our camp below Richmond on Wednesday the 28th of June and 
have been marching and fighting ever since until last Saturday night, when we 
arrived at the camp worn out and over-tired with fatigue and over-exertion. 
"We are within range of the enemy's gunboats on James River, if they had a 
mind to shell us, but I suppose that they have work enough to do now in carry- 
ing their men and baggage out of danger. It has been a glorious victory for our 
country. McClellan has been completely routed and his vast and fine army 
driven like sheep before us, with immense loss of baggage, provisions, arms, men 
and all the other munitions of war. Some say that they have 7000 Yankee pris- 
oners now in Richmond, with two Major Generals and four Brigadier Generals. 
The loss in our company is very heavy, and they are our best and bravest. I do 
not see, however, how in the world it is as small as it is. "We did not have more 
than 25 men in our Company when we went into the first fight. The rest were 
either sick or detailed off on various duties. There is a list of the killed and 
wounded in the various fights. On Thursday. June 6th, killed, none ; wounded, 
George "W. Lackey, leg broke by a shell below the knee, he will probably recover. 
A. B. Copeland, thigh broke by a shell ; I think he must die. Dick McFarland, in 
the hand and leg, not severely. Frank Condey, in the head, not severely. Rob- 
ert Right, in the shoulder, severe but not dangerous. On June 27th, killed, 
"William Burgin Corp. Mortally wounded, George "W. Burgin. "Wounded : 
Robert McCoy, in the hip ; not dangerous. Monday, June 20th, killed : Larkin 
A. Morris, Robert Duncan and David Lavender. "Wounded : John "Wood, in 
leg very slightly. Missing, supposed to be killed ; Steven McKinney. Nearly 
half of the men that were with us were either killed or wounded. I could write 
a volume to you but have not time nor paper now. I wrote to David on Friday 
after the first two battles; tell him to write to me immediately and to keep that 
letter, as I may want to see it again, as it was written under fire of Yankees. 



260 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

I have escaped very well. One ball passed through my haversack, and a spent 
ball struck my leg, but did not hurt me any more than if I had been struck 
by a small rock. The bark frequently spattered into my face from trees 
struck by balls. The men say I am too little to be hurt. I have seen Joe 
Neal and Marion Higgins, but have not seen John or Greenlee Fleming yet. 
They were in the battle on Tuesday. John was slightly wounded. Steve is well 
I heard by Joe Burgin. He came to me Sunday but cut out when the fight began 
Monday. Tell Uncle Jim to write to me. I am very anxious to hear from John. 
This is Yankee paper and a Yankee envelope. I enclose you an envelope and 
paper which I found in a Yankee letter that some man 's wife had sent him to 
write back on. Write at once to your brother. 

J. L. Greenlee. 

Camp near Richmond, July 19, 1862. 
Dear Father : — 

I promised in my letter to Becky to write you a full account of the late 
battles around here, so far as I was a participant in them. But first I will say 
that my health has been very bad since the battles, although I have not been oflf 
duty at any time. I have got the Yellow Jaimdiee now. It is the meanest, sick- 
enest disease I ever had in my life. It is impossible to describe one's feelings 
when they have it. Steve has been very sick for several days ; he is getting a 
little better. 

On Tuesday, June 25th, we received orders to march at 5 o 'clock P. M. The 
enemy seem to have determined to hurry us a little, so about the time we were 
ready to fall in, they commenced shelling. The shell would burst in the air over 
us and scatter the pieces everywhere ; one struck a tree in our camp low down, 
and another bursted into the 16th Regt., which was camped just behind us, but 
happily did no harm. After 5 o'clock our Brigade took up the line of march. 
Our Brigade consists of 16th, 22nd, 34th and 38th Regts., N. C. troops, under 
command of General Pender. We marched that night until about nine o'clock, 
then encamped and remained there till 3 o'clock next evening, ready to fall in 
at any moment. Thursday about 3 o'clock in the evening we started, and 
crossed the Chickahomig on the Meadow bridge. The enemy had been driven 
away from this bridge on the evening before by a party of our men. As soon 
as we had crossed the creek we began to see evidences of the presence of the 
Yankees in the shape of cabins, tents, breastworks, blankets, &c. We crossed 
the bottom and when we reached the uplands, filed to the right through the 
fields. After we had gone near a half a mile the Yankees opened a battery on 
us with shell and round shot. We advanced under this fire to Mechanicsville 
without losing a man although many of the shell passed very close to us and 
kept the men dodging all the time. When we came to Mechanicsville we passed 
through by the right flank, then about faced and marched back through. Here 
were the first dead and wounded men that I saw. They had been killed by shell 
and belonged to another regiment. The houses were badly torn up and they were 
fixing them up as hospitals. Just after passing Mechanicsville a shell exploded 
in the Company just before ours and wounded four men. We had to step over 
them as we went on. The Yankees gradually withdrew their battery as we ad- 
vanced and added new guns, our artillery replied to them. We advanced until 



JA]\IES OF VIRGINIA 261 

■we came to a deep wooded hollow ; in this there was a whole brigade lying own 
to shelter themselves from the cannon. We halted and lay down also, and now 
the cannonading was redoubled ; the balls, shell and grapeshot flew over us in a 
hurry, striking the trees and cutting off the limbs, but I did not see any men 
struck while we lay there. As we came out of this woods and were passing 
through a corn field, the first man was wounded in our company ; it was George 
Lackey. He was my left hand man. A piece of shell struck his leg and broke 
it in two. George is a good soldier and brave. There was no time for dodging 
now ; the shot was too thick. When we came to the end of the woods we found 
a Virginia Regiment drawn up at the edge of the woods in a line of battle ; we 
formed just behind them. They then advanced into the woods and commenced 
firing. Presently here they came out in considerable confusion and began to 
form before us ; our Colonel called out to them to form behind us and let us go 
in. We advanced into a thicket, and a thicket it was; when we had gone a short 
distance (it was uphill and pretty steep), Copeland was wounded, he was struck 
by grapeshot and his thigh shattered all to pieces. I turned my head when I 
heard him cry out with pain and saw Lieut. Burgin catch him in his arms as 
he fell. Lieut. Burgin was at this time in command of the Company. The Cap- 
tain was taken very sick that morning and we left him. Charlie ordered some 
one to take Copeland out. John Burgin and George immediately took hold of 
him. Copeland was directly behind me, and I do not see how the shot struck 
him and missed me. There was a Virginia Regiment in here ahead of us ; they 
were firing to the front but the smoke was so thick that it was impossible to see 
anything. The balls and grape were coming in thick, shaving the leaves and 
striking the trees. But I think the enemy were a long way off, for the rifle balls 
were all nearly spent before reaching us. Prank Condry was struck hard 
enough in the mouth to make it bleed a little. The stragglers from the regiment 
ahead of us broke our line so in passing through that we had to fall back to the 
field and form again and then advance again — passed the Virginia Regiment 
and on down the hill through the thicket imtil we came to the edge of a meadow 
covered with tall grape ; here we halted for some time. Presently a tall young 
officer came up behind us and asked what regiment it was; several of us said 
"22 N. C." "Forward then in the name of God" said he, "The General says 
forward." Some of the men started, but the officers stopped them. He then 
rushed to the front, dashed into the swampy grape, waved his sword and 
shouted "Forward." Some of the men asked for the Colonel. Colonel Connor 
then came to the front and walked up to the stranger and said, "I command this 
regiment, Sir." The stranger bowed and said, "Very well. Sir, the Yankees 
are just over there in the woods, if I can be of any service to you I will do any- 
thing I can." The Colonel then drew his sword, turned to us and said "Come 
on, men." The meadow was about 75 yards wide ; we plunged into the meadow 
in some places nearly knee-deep in mud and water ; in a few steps we fell in a 
ditch ; the front men scrambled out and those behind jumped over, and on we 
went. When we got to the edge of the woods on the other side, we found a 
wide ditch full of water in front of us. The stranger crossed the ditch by a 
small pole and shouted, "Come on, here are the Yankees, right here," pointing 
into the woods with his sword Some of the men plunged in and found it almost 
waist deep in mud and water. I was just about to plimge in when I heard some 



262 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

one say, "halt." We marched by the left flank down the ditch for some dis- 
tance ; then we were ordered to he down. Immediately the firing commenced on 
the left. Sone one on the left said, "Don't fire, our men are in front of us." 
Glancing into the woods I saw the shadowy forms of men through the smoke 
and bushes. I then shouted, "Fire men, it is the Yankees," and leveled my gun 
and fired. Looking along the line I saw that most of the men were firing too 
high. I shouted "Shoot low," as loud as I could. There was no time now to 
think of anything but loading and firing. We had an excellent position behind 
the bank of the ditch, and as we were lying down, they could not hit us any- 
where but in the head and shoulders. I was in front of our Company, loading 
and firing on my knees, and could hear the balls cut through the bushes and 
whistle past my head. I suppose we fired for five minutes. I fired eight times 
and could have fired more if my gun had not got so dirty that it was very hard 
to load; it had gotten so hot that I could hardly hold it. The Colonel, now 
seeing that our men had given way on the left and the Yankees were about to 
flank us, ordered us to cease firing and fall back. I had not thought of being 
hit before, but now I began to fear being shot in the back, but I soon found 
that the Yankees had ceased firing almost entirely. If they could have fired on 
us as we passed the meadow, they might have ruined us, but they were too badly 
cut up. We fell back into the old field where we had first gone in and formed. 
As we came through the woods there was the Virginia Regiment still huddled 
behind the trees and old logs. The Yankees balls, which passed over us, struck 
among them and they fired back over our heads. As we came out they came 
out with us and formed a good distance behind us. We now learned for the 
first time that Colonel Connor had his leg broken in the fight. The way of it was 
this : Colonel Connor went down the ditch till he came to a bridge, here he met 
two men who asked him which regiment that was. He replied "22 N. C." 
They instantly fired at him and broke to run, one of the balls broke his leg. 
Our men now saw the Yankee line about 50 feet from them and fired. It was 
now after dark ; Colonel Gray told us to lie down on our arms and hold our posi- 
tion until morning. We had to send out pickets into the woods. This was one 
of the hardest things that I have had to do, to name the men who should go out, 
when I knew they were all worn out with fatigue. We were obliged to remain 
here until two o'clock, when we received orders from General Pender to join the 
rest of our Brigade, from which we had become separated that evening and 
which was still in front of Mechaniesville. We marched back about a mile 
before we reached our Brigade. We passed thousands of men on our way all 
lying on their arms, many of them sleeping their last sleep and dreaming their 
last dream of Peace and home. We reached our regiment after three o'clock 
in the morning and threw ourselves down to sleep within a few hundred yards 
of the enemy. We were wet to our waists from lying in the water in the meadow, 
but we scarcely struck the ground before we were asleep. I had thrown off 
my blanket as we went into the battle and had none for a week or more. After 
a short rest, we were waked up the next morning before day. The condition 
of our regiment was extremely bad. This morning there not 100 men in the 
regiment, and another company was thrown in with our, and as neither com- 
pany had a commissioned oflScer, I had to take command of both companies. 
Our company numbered only 18 men and the company attached only 6. We 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 263 

were marched out and made to lie down behind the crest of a hill. The battle 
was renewed at daylight on the right and pretty soon the balls came whistling 
over our heads and we knew we were in for another fight. 

I have taken up more space in writing this than I had any idea of when 1 
began. I must stop this time for want of space. I know this letter must be 
tedious to you now. I will write a description of the other fights another time. 
You must answer this letter as soon as you get it. I have not received a letter 
from you since I left Yorktown. I got a letter from Becky and one from 
Uncle Jim a few days ago ; they were a long time coming. Major Bynum and 
Dr. Higgins were here last week. They staid with us for two or three days. 
Prom them we learnt the news from McDowell and all about the candi- 
dates. We are going to run W. F. Craig for the commons against Morris and 
he will beat him too. Morris is very unpopular in Camp. Our company and 
Neal's will go almost unanimously for Craig. Craig has been over to Black- 
wells and Lytle's companies, and I think he will beat Morris badly in both of 
them. I believe Craig is a far more suitable man than Morris. 

I sent you $28 by Major Bynum and spent the greater part of the money. I 
saw they were not going to pay us soon so I kept, and I needed it too, on the 
march. I will send you the rest of the $80 (which I consider I owe you), when 
we draw. Write immediately and let me know how John is getting on. Do 
not let him come back until he is entirely well again. Steve has got well again 
and sends "howdy" to all. I answered John's letter; tell him to write to me. 

Your affectionate son, 

J. L. Greenlee. 

He died from fever as the following letter shows : 

Loudon County, Va., near Upperville, October 4, 1862. 

John Greenlee, Esq.. 

Dear Sir : I very much regret to have to communicate to you the sad tidings 
of your brother 's death. Your brother Logan died at my house on five o 'clock 
on Tuesday, Sept. 30th of typhoid fever and was buried on Thursday, Oct. 2nd, 
in the neighborhood cemetery near the village of Upperville. He was buried in 
a neat and respectable manner with a view to his remains being removed to his 
home, if his friends may desire to do so. He was attended in his last illness by 
Dr. Gunnell, one of the prominent and able doctors of the county, and received 
every attention both medical and otherwise needful for his relief and well 
being. His servant Stephen was faithful in his attention to him both night and 
day as one could be, and he (Stephen) can inform you what attentions he re- 
ceived from myself and family, as also Mr. Huntley, who came to my house the 
same day your brother came, and expects to accompany Stephen to the army. 

Your brother came to my house on Monday and expired on the next Tuesday 
week. He was at Upperville indisposed, at the time of the Yankee raid into this 
neighborhood, he left there and came to my house as a place of safety, about 
two miles, which caused a relapse, from which he sank rapidly until he died. 
Such are the melancholy facts and circumstances of your brother's death. 

Very respectfully your friend, 

William Fleming.

SAMUEL HARVEY GREENLEE was a self made man, having had neither 
the advantage of a good education, nor pecuniary means to give him a start in 
the world. When only a boy, he and his brother Ephraim carried their books 
to the field when they went to work and employed every spare moment in 
study. In the evenings they studied by the light of the fire. By improving the 
leisure moments afforded him during his daily avocations, he succeeded in ob- 
taining a good education, and admission to the bar. He obtained a reputable 
standing in the legal profession. He held an enviable position among the most 
prominent citizens of Defiance, Ohio, and was an esteemed member of the Defi- 
ance County Bar. He was noted for his public spirit, his liberality, and his 
unflinching devotion to his principles, which he deemed promotive to the publio 
good. He was also distinguished for the exactitude of his business habits, and 
above all for the probity of his character. It has been the fortune of few men to 
have their word, in matters of business, more implicity confided in than his. In 
politics, he was a Whig; in religion, Presbyterian. 

MARGARET ANN GREENLEE began teaching school near her home at 

Ayersville, Ohio, when fourteen years of age, and afterward taught in the 
public schools at Napoleon, Ohio.

THOMAS FRANKLIN GREENLEE emigrated with his parents to Ohio in 
1827, where they settled on a farm near Chillicothe, Ross County. His young 
days were spent in a log cabin, and he often hunted deer and wild turkeys, 
which were plentiful in those days. Being a diligent student, he was able to 
commence teaching at the age of seventeen. After his marriage he located at 
Bourneville, Ross County, Ohio, where he was a teacher in the public schools. 
He afterward accepted a better position in the schools of Bainbridge in the 
same county. In April, 1849 he removed to Hillsboro, where he was a success- 
ful teacher for ten years. In the spring of 1862 he moved onto a farm three 
miles west of Hillsboro, and engaged in farming until August, 1867. At that 
time there was some excitement about the Anneka Jans estate in New York 
City, and Mrs. Greenlee being a direct descendant, Mr. Greenlee was prevailed 
upon to go as a representative to look into the business and gather all the facts 
in the case, as well as to search the records in New Jersey and New York City. 
He was very persevering and succeeded in proving the heirship of over one 
hundred claimants. In polities, he was a Republican ; in religion, Presbyterian. 
His widow removed in 1874 to Villisea, Iowa. 

CHARLES ANDERSON GREENLEE was reared on a farm and attended 
public school. At the age of thirteen he removed with his mother to Villisea, 
Iowa, where he attended the high school for four years. At the age of nineteen 
he entered the employ of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad as brake- 
man. At the end of three years he resigned and traveled over a good part 
of the western states and territories for the purpose of gaining information 
about the railroad business. He was an enthusiast in his work and a faithful 
employee. For a time he located at Los Angeles, California, but, the climate 
not agreeing with him, he went to Denver, Colorado, where he secured a posi- 
tion as yard master with the Sante Fe Company. He was sent to Galveston, 



268 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Texas for winter work, but spent the summers in Denver. While in Galveston 
he was superintendent of the trains which took on the merchandise from the 
ships unloading in the harbor. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Rail- 
road Men, and of the Knights of Pythias. 

JAMES EDWARD GREENLEE attended school and worked on the farm 
until he reached the age of nineteen. He spent one year with his uncle, James 
Greenlee, near Geneseo, Illinois, then returned home and entered the employ 
of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad as brakeman. He was promoted to yard 
master and remained with the company for six years. After traveling over 
most of the United States he located at Price, Emery County, Utah, where he 
has been fairly successful.

burg, Johnson Co., Missouri; married November 24, 1870 at Warrensburg, 
MARY CLARK DIVERS, born April 3, 1844 at Warrensburg, Missouri, daugh-

294. III. Mary Amelia, born February 5, 1881; unmarried (1901). 

JOHN WHITE GREENLEE lived in Lincoln County, Kentucky until about 
three or four years of age, when his mother — his father being dead — went west 
and settled in Platte County, Missouri. Some time afterward they located on 
a farm southeast of Warrensburg, being among the earliest settlers. He was 
educated at Elder George Johnson's Male School at Warrensburg. Before his 
education was completed the civil war broke out, and he enlisted April 15, 
1861 in the Confederate service, joining Company F, Gordon's Regiment, 
Shelby's Brigade. He was engaged in most of the important battles and cam 
paigns of Missouri, Arkansas, and other western states. He received two severe 
wounds from which he recovered. He was commissioned Lieutenant, and after- 
ward Captain, in which capacity he acted for a long time. With his brave 
comrades he surrendered at Shreveport, Louisiana. On his return home he 
found nothing save his land, his house having been burned during the perilous 
strife. He replaced his home and lived there with his mother until her death. 
In 1887 he removed to the City of Warrensburg, and several years later in 
company with Mr. T. J. Caldwell, engaged in the lumber business. In 1898 he 
was forced to retire from business on account of ill health, and his son Francis 
conducted the business until the dissolution of partnership in 1900. For many 
years he was a faithful worker in the First Baptist Church of Warrensburg 
and for a long time had charge of a Bible class, being especially devoted to the 
Sunday school. In politics he was a Democrat. His children were all educated 
at the State Normal School at Warrensburg. 

ELMO MURRAY GREENLEE graduated at the State Normal School at 
Warrensburg in July, 1893, and the following October he went to work on a 
ranch at Midland Texas, which was owned by his uncle, Francis Divers. He

stayed there until 1897, then decided to go to Mexico. He invested some money 
in Sonora and is now dealing in mines. He is a mining engineer and lives at

federate army during the Civil War, a member of the Second Kentucky Cavalry, 
and was with General Morgan on his raids. He was wounded in Kentucky and

thereby escaping the horrors of prison. His company never surrendered until 
after they reached home in June, 1865. They separated from Mr. Davis at 
Washington, Georgia. He went south and was captured, while they went west. 
After they learned that Kirby Smith had surrendered they turned toward home 
and gave up the fight. He was a member of the Constitutional Convention of 
Mississippi in 1890, being sent without seeking the place, and received every 
vote cast in the county. He is a Democrat but has never taken an interest in

ROBERT HARLAN GREENLEE, after the death of his mother, was ap- 
prenticed to the proprietor of a newspaper in Stephens County, Texas, for 
whom he worked about two years, then ran away from him on account of 
mistreatment. For about three years he wandered about, working at his 
trade in Parker County, Texas, cooking in a raftman's camp on Little River, 
Arkansas, and line-riding on a large cattle ranch in the Panhandle of Texas. 
While at the latter emploj-ment a wild horse fell on him inflicting as was 
supposed fatal injuries. He was removed to the settlement and his father sum- 
moned to see him die; but contrary to predictions he was convalescent when 
his father reached him, and returned with him to Stephens County. He re- 
mained at home, attending school and working at his trade, until 1885, after 
which he visited and worked- in all the important cities of the East and "West, 
as journeyman printer and member of the International Typographical Union. 
After two years ' absence he returned home for a short visit, then left for New 
Orleans, where he spent the winter. The next summer he visited Virginia and 
West Virginia. After spending some time there with relatives and friends, he 
returned to Texas and finished the preliminary course of reading law, and was 
admitted to the bar in Coleman County, Texas, March 14, 1889. The following 
May he was elected State's Attorney for Coke County, Texas, and served in 
that capacity until the fall of 1890. After his marriage he returned to Coke 
Coimty with his bride, but had scarcely taken up the thread of business before 
she contracted typhoid fever and died in a few weeks. Immediately after 
her death he sold all his property, and, after paying his father a short visit, 
left for Galveston, thence via Malory R. R. to Key West, from there to Havana, 
thence via schooner to Rio Janeiro, Brazil. En route off Cape St. Roque the 
schooner came near foundering in a terrific gale. He did not remain long in 
Rio Janeiro, and returning to the United States followed his trade, working on 
the Times-Union of Jacksonville, Florida until the spring of 1893, when he re- 
turned to Texas and settled down to the practice of law in Alvin. In 1898, his 
health failing, he removed to the mountains of Arkansas, where he prospered 
greatly and is a leading member of the bar in his section of the state.

EDWARD THOMAS GREENLEE with his manly, chivalric ways and 
bright sayings, began to attract friends to himself very early in life. His fond- 
ness for all sorts of animals led to his making many strange and grotesque pets ; 
and a study of their habits gave him perpetual amusement and delight. Any 
cruelty to them quickly aroused his championship, and this remained a promi- 
nent and vdnning characteristic throughout his life. To all that was beautiful 
in nature, the sensitive soul of the boy quickly responded. As boy or man the 
beauty of no wild flower escaped him, and during the later years of his life he 
was a most successful and enthusiastic gardener, dispelling thereby many busi- 
ness cares and worries. 

Full of bright hopes, noble resolves and lofty purposes, he left his old home 
for college life at the University in 1878, and in 1880 finished with honor the 
Scientific course. Here, too, he was converted and joined the Presbyterian 
church. After reading law for two years with W. W. Flemming of Charlotte, 
he obtained in 1882 license to plead at the bar, and returning to McDowell, 
opened a law office in Marion, where he practiced law quite successfully until a 



JAMES OF VIRGINIA. 285 

few weeks before his death. During the pastorate of the Rev. E. C. Murray he 
was chosen Elder of the Marion Church and superintendent of the Sabbath 
school. His interest and pleasure in this work were most earnest and sincere. 
With the New Year he had gone to Asheville, to find wider scope for his talent 
in the realm of law. His first ease in the city courts had just been gained when 
the sudden illness came on which caused his death.

CHILDREN: 

391. I. Henry Clay, born April 14, 1874 at St. Paul, Minnesota. 

392. n. Emily Louise, born September 12, 1879. 

HENRY CLAY GREENLEE passed his first years at Defiance, Ohio, and 
from his eighth to fifteenth year, on a farm about five miles from Ayersville, 
Ohio, meanwhile attending school in the village. When fifteen he obtained his 
mother's consent to accompany her cousin to St. Paul, Minnesota, doing what- 
ever he could find to do until he secured a position with a dealer in furs. He 
remained in this position until he was seventeen years of age, when he enlisted 
on July 28, 1862 in Company A, 6th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry, first to be 
sent to quell the Indian outbreak, and later sent with his regiment to the south 
to assist in quelling the rebellion. He saw much active service, and was mus- 
tered out at Fort Snelling, Minnesota, August 19, 1865. He was fond of study 
and carried books with him all his army life, improving every opportunity. 
After his discharge from the army he visited his mother and sister in Ohio, and 
attended school there for a time, then returned to St. Paul and engaged in the 
fur business. He was considered the best judge of fur in the city. He made 
many trips to the northern and western parts of the state to purchase fur, often 
with large sums of money on his person, and when beyond the pale of civiliza- 
tion would lie down at night with none but Indians for company, and without 
fear of molestation. Upon being asked if he were not afraid, he answered, "I 
feel safer with them than with white perosns. The Indians would die for me." 
He learned to speak their language, which pleased them very much. When 
they came dovra to St. Paul in the spring to dispose of their winter's work in 
hunting and trapping, they would deposit their money with him, considering it 
safer than in a bank. He was a Republican ; Baptist. His widow and daughter 
reside at St. Paul. 

HENRY CLAY GREENLEE, JR., enlisted June 11, 1898 at St. Paul, as 
recruit in Company D, 13th Regiment Minnesota Volunteers, for service in the 
Spanish-American war. He was at Camp Merritt from June 20 until July 29, 
1898, when he sailed on the steamer "St. Paul" from San Francisco, and ar- 
rived at Manila, Philippine Islands, August 31, 1898. He was a dental student 
at the time of his enlistment.

FRANCIS PEARCE GREENLEE was educated in the public schools and 
academy of Hillsboro, graduating from the latter in 1866. He taught school in 
Hillsboro for three years, then went to Indianapolis, where he read law with 
his uncle, Ephraim A. Greenlee, and was admitted to the bar in the spring of 
1872. The same year he went to Villisca, Montgomery Co., Iowa, where he 
taught school for one year, and at the end of that time was admitted to the bar 
in that state and began the practice of law at Villisca. He represented Mont- 
gomery County in the twenty-first General Assembly, and was prominent in 
much of the legislation of that session. Being a member of the Judiciary Com- 
mittee, he took a leading part in the reorganization and putting into successful 
operation the present judical system of the state, and permanently locating the 
supreme court at the state capital. He was a member of several of the most 
important committees, being chairman of two. One of the most able and 
effective debaters upon the floor, he was recognized as one of the leaders of the 
House. He was not a candidate for re-elcetion. 

Mr. Greenlee was closely identified with the growth and development of the 
city of Villisca and that part of the country ; and, being imbued with the public 
spirit commendable in all men, he took an active part in all public questions, and 
upheld those which to him appeared to be for the best interest of the whole 
people. He was three times elected mayor of Villisca. His last term expired in 
April, 1898, when he declined re-election, but was retained as solicitor by the 
city. Taking charge of the city with a depleted treasury, he so managed the 
finances that, without increasing taxation, he paid off the city bonds as they 
matured and the cost of all needed improvements and extensions, and retired 
at the close of his last official term with the endorsement and good will of the 
people, and a large cash balance in the treasury. In 1898 he removed to Red 
Oak to enter upon the discharge of his duties as County Attorney, to which 
office he had been elected that fall. By his careful and painstaking methods 
with all business entrusted to him, and strict fidelity to his clients, he has won 
the confidence and esteem of the people. He is an able lawyer and successful 
practitioner, filling the office of County Attorney with marked ability to the 
entire satisfaction of his fellow citizens. 

Mr. Greenlee is a teacher in the Presbyterian Sunday school, and has been 
prominent in that work for years. He is a member of the orders of Odd Pellows, 
Knights of Pythias and Masons.

WILLIAM GREENLEE removed from Susquehanna County to Woodeock- 
boro, Pennsylvania, in 1796. He removed from Pennsylvania to Ohio about 
1810 and located a farm of 160 acres on the south side of the Big Mohican 
River in Wayne (now Ashland) County. He exchanged his farm for the S. W. 
Quarter of Section 14, Range 15, Township 20, Wayne County, (now known as 
Lake Township, Ashland County), three miles further along the same river. 
He returned to Pennsylvania and arranged for moving his family to Ohio. 
October 22, 1811, he commenced his journey through the forest with one two- 
horse and one four-horse covered wagon, loaded with household goods, provis- 
ions, grain, and his family. He crossed the Ohio river and followed the trail 
through Canton, Massillon, and Wooster — then all mere villages. There were 
but few cabins along the trail and he was compelled to camp by the wayside 
nearly the entire distance. When he arrived at the village of Wooster he found 
no open path to the cabin of James L. Priest, who had been a neighbor in 
Crawford County, Pennsylvania and had located in 1809 near what is now 
known as Priests' Prairie, so he preceded his teams with an ax, cutting the 
undergrowth and preparing a wagon road. In this way his progress was slow

and it took nearly a month to perform the journey. Arrived safely at his des- 
tination, his old neighbor and several Indians assisted him in putting up a 
cabin. As he was of mild and religious nature he fared vrell with the Indians, 
and he often said that he had never had anything stolen by them. As deer 
and wild geese were plentiful, they would often hunt together and were fast 
friends. For a long time there were but five families in this vicinity. The 
cabins were near the old Huron trail, and great numbers of Delawares passed 
on their way to and from the old Indian settlement on the Tuscarawas, during 
the fall of 1811 and the spring of 1812, but all kept quiet and friendly until 
after Hull's surrender at Detroit. This was followed by the removal of the 
Green and Jerometown Delawares, and the assasination of Ruffner, the Zim- 
mers and James Capus by the hostile Indians from Sandusky. The pioneers in 
the Priest neighborhood converted Mr. Priest's double cabin into a block house 
and enclosed with pickets about one-fourth of an acre of ground aroimd it. 
The settlers near Odells Lake joined those of the Priest settlement in the erec- 
tion of the stockade and came there for safety. They remained in the fort 
but a short time, though the fort remained the headquarters of the little 
colony during the continuance of the war. 

About the first stranger who came to the lone cabin was Johnny Appleseed.* 
as he was called. He planted an orchard for Mr. Greenlee, some of the trees 
of which are still bearing. Mr. Greenlee cleared some land for farming, and 
later built a flour mill, which was the first one in that section of the country. 
Previously they had to go into Rnox County — a distance of thirty miles — 
for their flour. A part of this old mill is still standing. In a short time his 
troubles began, and he lost his wife and several children, all being buried in 
the orchard. Some years later he sold his farm and mill and purchased the 
homestead which, at his decease, came into the possession of his son John.

apple seed down the river. All along, up and down both the Ohio and Muskingum rivers 
and their wild tributaries he glided, stopping here and there to plant an orchard. Hundreds 
of orchards in that section were planted by this poor old man. He died in 18-18 at Fort

JOHN MEREDITH TAYLOR DUNN insisted on taking his father's place 
when the militia was called out in the war of 1812. He was a great reader, 
and interested in having good schools. Through him his district was the first 
in that part of the country to introduce the study of Philosophy and Physiology. 
He was also a strong temperance man, and drew up and circulated the first 
pledge in the county. He raised the first building that was raised anywhere 
in the vicinity without whiskey, but it took the second lot of men to start it. 
The building was raised the second day without accident or quarrel, while at 
the next two men fought and another man had his leg broken. After this the 
next one adopted Mr. Dunn's plan and had no trouble, so that ended whiskey 
for such occasions. He was a farmer; Republican; United Presbyterian; re- 
sided at McKean, Pennsylvania.

322 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

Venango County, Pennsylvania, at that time one of the foremost oil operators 
in the state. In the service of Mr. Anderson he learned much about the oil 
operations, and in 1873 he became associated with others in operations in 
several of the most important oil districts of the state. He vrent to Butler 
County in 1883, and has since developed a business that gives him rank among 
the largest producers in the country. Success in most instances claimed him 
for its own; but this was no doubt largely due to his pluck, industry, per- 
severance, and excellent business qualifications. The firm of Greenlee and 
Forst, organized in 1891, of which he is senior member, have been large opera- 
tors in this field, and still have a number of producti>re wells in the district 
known as Glad Run and Renfrew. They have also operations in Washington 
County, Pennsylvania, where a number of fine wells are now producing. Mr. 
Greenlee organized the United States Oil Company, composed principally of 
Boston capitalists, which has very large interests in Marion, Wood, and Wetzel 
counties, West Virginia, where they operate on a very large scale, having had 
as many as three hundred wells at one time in which they were interested. Mr. 
Greenlee is Vice-President and General Manager of this company. He is also 
a director of the AUiquippa Steel Works located at Alliquippa, Beaver County, 
Pennsylvania. He is also connected with the Trade Dollar Mining Company of 
Idaho, whose mines are considered among the best paying ones in the state; 
and with the Pure Oil Company of Oil City, Pennsylvania. Mr. Greenlee has 
offices in Pittsburg; but he is devoted to his family and all his spare time is 
spent at his beautiful home, located on one of the finest residence streets of 
Butler. 

MRS. GREENLEE is one of the most active workers in the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, and is also active and infiuential in the cause of temperance, 
and in all other causes having for their object the betterment of the world.

JAMES OF PENNSYLVANIA. 323 

PETER PATTERSON GREENLEE and his brother James went from 
Pennsylvania to Iowa in the fall of 1855 and entered government land in Tama 
County. Mary Jane Guiler went to Iowa the following year, and after their 
marriage they went to their little cabin home on the prairie where Traer now 
stands. They cheerfully bore the trials and hardships of a frontier life together 
until 1863, when in answer to his country's call, he enlisted in the Ninth Iowa 
Cavalry. The day after his eldest child, Margaret, was buried, he bade goodby 
to his wife and remaining children, and went with his company to guard the 
railroad running into Little Rock, Arkansas. In September, 1864, he was given 
a furlough and went home, where he died six weeks later. He was a Republi- 
can; Presbyterian; resided at Toledo, Iowa. 

MART EMMELINE GREENLEE graduated with high honors in the classi- 
cal course at Western College, Toledo, in 1888. She was gifted as a speaker 
and writer. Her graduating oration was said to have surpassed anything that 
had ever been delivered in the history of the college; but the hopes of her 
friends were never realized, she having died the year following her graduation.

JAMES OF PENNSYLVANIA. 329 

ROBERT GREENLEE obtained his early education at the little country 
school located near Woodcock, Pennsylvania. His father operated a saw mill 
and shipped the lumber down French Creek to Franklin, thence into the Alle- 
gheny river to Pittsburg, and Robert's early life was spent as a creek and river 
pilot for his father. In 1855 he determined to try his fortune in the west and 
lived in southern Illinois for six months, then located at Bloomington, where he 
commenced the building and contracting business in which he continued until 
his death. The first sixteen years he was in partnership with Mr. H. A. Miner, 
but after that carried on the business alone. He had little to start with, hav- 
ing but one hundred dollars and a few articles which his wife brought from 
her home to commence housekeeping, but with energy and good business quali- 
ties, he soon became prosperous and one of the leading contractors and build- 
ers in the city. Some of the finest residences and public buildings were erected 
by him, among them the Court House and McKean County Jail. In 1887 be 
went to California, being attracted by the building boom there at that time, 
and remained eighteen months. His last contract, on which he was engaged at 
the time of his death, was the building of the Methodist Episcopal Church at 
Shirley, Illinois. He was a plain man, but one of those kindly and pleasant 
persons whom everybody liked. In politics, he was a Republican ; in religion, 
Presbyterian.

362 GREENLEE GENEALOGY. 

THOMAS JEFFERSON GREENLEE went to Central America. After h« 
had been there about two years, and making good money, he sent for his young- 
est brother, Virgil, to come thinking they could soon make a fortune. Virgil 
went in the fall of 1893, and the following June died a victim of yellow fever. 
This was such a blow to the elder brother that he sold out and started back to 
North America. The ship in which he took passage was wrecked, and he, 
with many others, was drowned.

the Civil War broke out he was among the first to follow the fortunes, or mis- 
fortunes, of the South. He was taken prisoner when Price surrendered at 
Little Rock, and was kept there in prison all winter, being in wretched health. 
Rather than have him go north as a prisoner, his wife persuaded him to take 
the oath and come out. He was a lieutenant in the Confederate army.

and he made an attempt to cross the mountains and join the Federal army, 
but was captured and held as a prisoner at Madison, Georgia. He was released 
and returned home, but had to leave or join the Rebellion, so he made another 
attempt to cross the moiintains and succeeded in reaching London, Kentucky, 
where he enlisted in the Federal army in Company G, second Tennessee Cavalry, 
Army of the Cumberland, and served for nearly three years. On July 6, 
1865 he was mustered out at Nashville, Tennessee, after having been en-

her immediate family had all been educated there, but she was offered induce-

ROBERT OF PENNSYLVANIA. 389 

CAPTAIN ROBERT GREENLEE was one of the pioneers among river men. 
He commenced as a keelboatman, and then became a skillful pilot, in which 
capacity he served between Allegheny City, Pennsylvania and St. Louis and 
New Orleans, and was also thoroughly acquainted with the devious ways of the 
Red and Yazoo rivers. He subsequently became Master, and during his long 
and active career had command of many steamers, among them the "Union," 
"Messenger" and "South America." He was an accomplished oiBeer, and held 
in high esteem by all who knew him, for his genial disposition and honorable, 
upright dealing. On the day of his funeral, all the passenger steamers and 
tow boats at the wharf, including the "Messenger" — the last boat he com- 
manded—had their flags at half-mast as a mark of respect to his memory. 



LEWIS S. GREENLEE was captain of the steamboat "Homer," running 
from New Orleans up Bayou Macon. He was a whole-souled gentleman, kind 
and true in all his relations of life.

for it; but she was able to bring up her children and keep them neatly and 
comfortably clothed without assistance. She was proud, quick witted and very 
self reliant. When she attempted anything she would allow nothing to inter- 
fere with its acomplishment. In 1898 she left Allegheny City, Pennsylvania

^ 



ROBERT OF PENNSYLVANIA. 391 

THOMAS WALLACE GREENLEE was reared in Allegheny Co., Pennsyl- 
vania, and attended the common schools and an academy in that county. He 
went on the river when quite young and has followed it most of his business 
life. He was well and favorably known along the Ohio and Mississippi rivers 
as one of the oldest and most trusted and honored captains and skillful pilots. 
He followed steamboating up to about five years before his death, the infirmities 
of old age compelling him to give it up and pass his declining years in the re- 
tirement of his home. During the last twenty-five years of his steamboating 
life he was in the employ of Gray's Iron Line, and possessed the confidence and 
highest esteem of the firm. Possessed of a kind and genial nature, he made 
many friends, and visitors to his home in his declining years would leave im- 
pressed with having been greeted and honored by that olden time courtesy and 
hospitality so seldom met with in these modern times. He was a Republican; 
Presbyterian; removed in 1851 to Vanport, Pennsylvania where he owned a 
splendid residence property. 

SUSANNA (ONSTOTT) GREENLEE after the death of her husband, made 
her home with her daughter, Mrs. J. P. Ross, and her granddaughter, Mrs. 
W. J. East. Slie was a devout Christian, a consistent member of the Presby- 
terian church at Vanport since its erection, having at that time withdrawn her 
card of membership from the church at Bridgewater. Her whole life was a 
beacon light guiding those about her to a higher and better life. The love and 
esteem in which she was held was attested by the large gathering of neighbors, 
friends and relatives who came from far and near. The services were in charge 
of Rev. T. P. Potts, of the Vanport Presbyterian church, pastor of the de- 
ceased, and were in keeping with her life and character. Assisting him were 
Rev. B. F. Doyle, D. D., of Salem, and Rev. John F. Dravo of Beaver. The 
interment took place in Beaver cemetery. The pallbearers were the grandsons 
of the deceased : Alvin L. Large and Charles Large, of Allegheny, W. H. Ste- 
venson, of Pittsburg, Albert McMullen, of Allegheny, Stewart Fowler and "W. J. 
East of Vanport. 

ROBERT WALLACE GREENLEE and William Merchant Greenlee were 
employed by Grays Iron Line three years and were together with his father 
on the same steamer, Robert had a cousin Charles who was a popular clerk 
at one time on the boats running from Pittsburg to St. Louis.

JOHN CARROL MORRIS GREENLEE moved with his mother and step- 
father from West Virginia to Missouri. His mother died when he was four- 
teen years old and his stepfather married again. John and his half brother 
were trying to plow one day, but they were so small that they could not make a 
success of it. His stepfather came out to show them how and they proceeded 
as directed, but yet did not make a success. Mr. Everett's wife came out and 
protested, whereupon John told her that Mr. Everett was not his father, nor 
was she his mother, and he went to his mother's brother Michael and remained 
with him. On one occasion while there he was told to carry some weeds to a 
certain place, but this was too slow to suit him, so he set them afire and burned 
up a lot of corn, wheat and rails. On another occasion his uncle left him and 
a cousin to cultivate a certain amount of corn, and told them if it was not 
finished when he got home he would punish them severely. He was not very 
long away when some other boys came along going fishing and wanted them 
to go too. The work was not finished, but John said, "A scolding don't hurt 
and a whipping don't last long." They both received the promised whipping. 
He lived there until his uncle's death, after which he went to work for the 
Western Stage Company, his first work being to lead stock over the road, and 
afterward he drove a team. He continued at this until the company sold all 
their good horses to the Overland Stage Company. He then drove a bus for a 
while, and in 1870 commenced farming, which he followed in Dallas and Har- 
rison counties, Iowa. In politics he was Republican; in religion. Christian; 
resided at Osceola, Iowa. 

PRANK CARROL GREENLEE has always farmed for a living. In 1895 
he removed from Portsmouth, Iowa to Kingfisher, Oklahoma, but was not suc- 
cessful there and soon went to Colorado, where he has since been acting as 
foreman on a ranch near Lafayette. 

JOSEPH BRUCE GREENLEE enlisted in Company C, 2nd Battalion, 51st 
Iowa Volimteers, on May 4, 1898 at Harlan, Iowa. Prom there he was taken 
to Des Moines and remained there until June 5, 1898, having been sworn into 
the United States service a few days before, and went with his regiment to the 
Phillippine Islands.
