2 & 3

In the original book, chapters 2 and 3 were found on pages 29-183 and also on unclassified #315 and his descendents, beginning on page 567, and William beginning on page 565. 

Michael and John of Kent Co., Delaware

They were brothers, born about 1700 and immigrated in 1714.  brothers, immigrated to Kent County, Delaware.  John had a son in Delaware about 1745.  Michael was born about 1700 and came to this country about 1714.  He was married twice, and the record of the children is not altogether clear*.  On his second marriage he was sixty years old and his bride was 19.  At this age he was said to have lifted with one hand a 200 pound dressed hog by the bristles.  His last child is about seventy years younger than himself.  He had at least twelve children by the two wives, but which were by which is uncertain.  It appears that some of the children from the second marriage may have had the same names as children from the first.  Children from both marriages seem to have moved to Anderson County, also called the Pendleton District, in South Carolina.

James and Mary of Virginia

He was born 1707, and they immigrated to Rockbridge Co., Virginia about 1727. 

He was born in 1707.  After arriving on this shore with Mary's father and brother, the McDougalls, they opened up new territory in Virginia along the James River.  While in the wilderness, they found a man incapable of finding his large grant, and he paid them in land to guide them to it.  They then settled in to Rockbridge, Virginia about 1737, ten years after arriving in North America.  Mary E. Greenlee was held captive by the local Indians.  She escaped and returned to the settlement only to find that a girl was still being held in a cave.  Mary Greenlee left the safety of the settlement alone and returned with the girl in a few hours.  Mary E. Greenlee lived to be at least 95, riding horseback erectly until her death.  She retained such physical and mental sharpness that ignorant neighbors whispered of witchcraft.

James of Tennessee

 (This is the Grainger Co. Tenn family.  For Greene Co., Tennessee, see chapter 21). 

After James Greenlee came from Ireland, he spent a little time in Pennsylvania, but by 1729 Pennsylvania had seen six thousand immigrants; rising land prices and sterile soils to the west drove many families southward and he settled for a while in Virginia on the Potomac River.  While the date they moved is unknown, their first child was born there in 1775, only six years after William Bean had become Tennessee's first settler.  The Cumberland Gap, through which Daniel Boone explored Kentucky, was only discovered here in 1750.  He may be the James Greenlee whose farms on the Catawba River were raided by Ferguson in the Revolutionary War, (A.C.A.).
