Family of Green, Thomas and Brannon, Nancy

Married Husband Green, Thomas ( * about 1795 + before 1850 )

I've added John Green here (Theresa Young's ancester) only because stories say they were brothers, his family lived near their parents farm, he named a daughter Melinda, and he was buried in the same cemetery. He appears however to be Native American instead of Irish.

Some biography of these Greens here -
[ed. cannot confirm any of this line - Green's in Wilson Co have wrong ages to be ours ]

A reference to their location in Jackson County, TN here -
by Paulette Williams says Melinda born in the Cub Creek area -
"Both Sampson and Melinda are buried in the Green-Cassetty cemetery in Jackson Co., Tennessee, near the Macon County line. The cemetery is on a farm once owned by Melinda's parents, Thomas and Nancy Brannon Green and left to Melinda. It is unknown who owns the farm now."

Neither Thomas Green or Nancy can be identified in any census! I suspect they were living in William Brannon's hh in 1820 Smith Co, TN. Note both children's first born are named William.

===> implies Thomas Green born a bit before 1795!

Brannon is not a common name in early TN/NC. It is Irish and it's possible the Green's and Brannon's came together from Ireland.
