A Few Notes from Mom

I love the Medieval history and even more ancient civilizations' stories. And I love tracing those lines to the pioneers of this great country.
It occurred to me lately that I need to slow down and share some of the stories closer to this end of the line.
I will share some wonderful stories that were told to me by my mother but first I thought these notes should be posted first. It is a list of my parents families as told to my wife in a conversation a few years ago by my Mom.
This is for my brothers and their children - anyone else may or may not find anything helpful here unless you are researching the Green family of McDowell county, WVa.
