I've been researching this side of my mother's tree for three years.  Also book is in the works.  It's been fun, it's been tense, and it's been enlightening.  Most of my mother's generation never talked about their ancestors.  That could be they didn't know anything about them.  Whatever the case may be, I feel, they lost out on knowing where their ancestors originated from.  So here is a start, maybe you are related.

Nathaniel T. Green b.Apr 1822 NY  d.  after 1900 The Dalles, OR
     m.  abt. 1847 NY  Sarah Bessey(Bessie)   b. 1826 NY
children:  Ira Willis  b. 1 Jul 1847 NY  d. 21 May 1929 Churchill Co, NV  m. 21 Mar 1864  Adams Co, IA  Melissa Jones
                Sarah   b. 1851 NY  d. 15 Mar 1912 Clackamas Co, OR  m. 24 May 1867 Adams Co, IA William Way Davis
                Elmer T.   b. Dec 1855 IL   d. 27 Mar 1931 Yakima Co, WA  m. 1883 OR  Mary Burlingame
                Ezra   b. 1856 IL           d.    (?)    m. 10 Jul 1881 Montgomery Co, IA  Malinda Jane Cole
Nathaniel m. Melissa Davis 12 Mar 1867 Adams Co, IA
children:   Edward   b.abt 1869 IA
                 Thomas   b. Mar 1870  d. (?)   m. 1 Jan 1893 Norton Co, KS  Ursula Eibert
Nathaniel m. Clarissa A. Barnes 19 Jan 1873 Freemont Co, IA
children:  Charles Daniel   b.10 Dec 1873 KS  d. 13 Jan 1929 Koochicking Co, MN  m. 1 Nov 1895 Guthrie Co, IA   Ida Viola Wood
                George W.   b.11 Feb 1880 KS  d. (?)   m. 1914 Guthrie Co, IA  Flora M. Whipple
                Baxter Foster  7 Sep 1877 KS   d. 12 May 1955 W. Des Moines, IA   m.  8 Mar 1902 IA  Mona Johnson
                Elijah   b. 23 Feb 1876 KS  d. 6 Nov 1951 Koochicking Co, MN  m. 1899 IA  Alice Stoddard
                Ceader  b.22 Feb 1884 KS     d. (?)        m. 1903 IA Minnie L. Titus

Now the fun begins weaving my story about Nathaniel and his wives and children.  Did I say it was my story?  Actually it's Nathaniel's story but it's my rendition, with facts of course,  of how it all began and ended. 

Until then...........................
