[NI43202] Mentioned in his grandfather's will; received $1 The second source lists his mother as
Elenor, James Greene's first wife. A Job Greene was found in the Rhode Island State Census Reocrds
of 1782, living a few houses down from Obadiah Johnson, father of Sarah Johnson. Census records
show one son under 16 and one daughter under 16 (Allen and Elenor). Obadiah Johnson identified an
Allen Greene and Elenor Greene as his grandchildren in hi will of 1791; no parents were identified. The
only daughter who could have married Jacob or Job Greene is Sarah Johnson, and she is deceased by
the time Obadiah Johnson's will was written in 1791. Job Greene is identified as Lt Job Green of the
Continental Army. Job served in the battle of Sullivan's Expedition in New York. This expedition utilzed
regiments from other states. While residing in OCventry, Kent County, Rhode Island, Job Greene
served with the Rhode Island troops as follows: From 1 May 1775, eight months as corporal and
orderly sergeant in Captain Edmund Johnson's company, Colonel James M. Varnum's regiment in the
summer and fall of 1776, two months as ensign in Captain WIliam ROy's company, Colonel Archibald
Kasson's regiment; he was commissioned 23 Jan 1777, 2nd Lieutenant, and served in Captain Malachi
Rammett's company, Colonel Joseph Stanton's regiment; length of service - 15 months; in sumer or fall
of 1778, two weeks as adjutant in Captain Abel Bennett's company, Colonel Archibald Kasson's
regiment, and was in General Sullivan's Expedition; the summer following, one month adjutant in
Captain Abel Bennett's company, Colonel Archibald Kasson's regiment. Job Greene applied for
Revolutinary War pension in 1832, at which time men named Allen Matteson son of Job Matteson),
Rufus Johnson and John Greene, all who knew Job since childhood, gave testimony. (NOTE by Laura
Green: Possibly Job named a son after this Alen Matteson.) Soldier born December 1751 in Warwick,
Rhode Island and he lived at Coventry, Rhode Island at enlistment. He lived there a number of years
after the war, then moved to Petersburg, Rensselaer, County, New York. In 1822 he moved to
Brunswick, Rensselaer, New York. He applied for a pension their on 9 Aug 1832 and died on 17
January 1838. In 1838, upon Job's death, Job's sons Job, jt and Johnson Greene gave testimongy (living
in Brusnwick) that they were the only surviving heirs to receive Job's final pension payment. It is
importatnt to note that Allen, if he were their half brother, would have been long goneinto the frontier
of western New York (by 1800) and Job and Johnson Greene would have probably had no knowledge
of Allen's whereabouts. In probate court after Job's 1838 death, Job, Jr claimed to be the only surviving
heir (Johnson had assigned Job, Jr power of attorney.) Source: Abstract of will of James Greene of
