1802 Son born in Otsego Co- Charles L. Green 4 Jul 1802
1805 Living in Cazenovia, Madison Co., NY
1808 Perry Green bought 2 acres of land. No record of sale. (I think he was most likely the one from whom Allen
Who bought in Cattaraugus Co. some could be brothers of Allen.
1810 Census of Madison County in Cazenovia

1872 Wife died 5 May 1872 age 91
Not knowing Allen’s brothers, it is difficult to analyze the material found in Madison County. We have
Allen, b 1776, Rhode Island- age 21 1800 Census
Nathaniel, b 1766 age 34 1800 Census of Otsego Co., NY
Job, b 1770 age 30 1800 Census of Otsego Co., NY
James b 1768 age 32 1800 Census of Otsego Co., NY
Perry b 1780 ca age 20 1800 Census of Otsego Co., NY
ONE NAME CAN NOT SEE UNDER JAMES
Nothing proven, Joshua who was in Cazenovia would be born around 1765 and old enough to be the father of Mary Emoliza. He is still in Madison Co in 1825; but leaves no will. Other Ellis families in the county, but not enough information to be useful.
Nothing proved-The marriage should be in Otsego or whereever they were prior to there. No will seen has been helpful.
Suggestions: Hold the work until we acquire the records of Otsego County, New York and of Rhode Island (these should be finished filming bu the end of the year)
Montgomery County, New York may be helpful as it covered all of Wester New York. However so many counties were cut from this territory that it is difficult to know where records are of people living in Montgomery prior to 1790.
