    Notes 
    • Judge Edward Green(e) was born in Westerly, Rhode Island, March 20, 1760 and died in Alfred, Allegany County, NY, February 24, 1845. In 1778, probably in Rhode Island, he married Huldah Sweet, who was born January 29, 1858 and died in Alfred, March 16, 1839. No record of her parentage has been found, but she is said to have been a sister of "John Sweet of Williamstown, Massachusetts" and probably was a sister of Jeremiah and Thomas Sweet, who served in the same company and regiment (Van Rensselaer's) with her husband and whose names were bestowed upon two of her own sons. Judge Edward was a farmer, as were his fathers before him and his sons and grandsons after him for four or five generations.

      During 1777 and 1778 he served in the Revolution with his brothers, Charles and John, in Colonel John Topham's regiment in Rhode Island. Soon after he removed with all his brothers and sisters to Berlin, Rennselaer County, NY. There he served during 1780 and 1781 with his four brothers in the company of Captain Samuel Shaw, 6th Albany Regiment, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Henry K. Van Rensselaer. How long he lived here is not known, but, he removed to Brookfield, Madison County, NY, and perhaps for a time to Adams, Jefferson County, and while in Brookfield served as captain during the War of 1812 in which three of his sons, at least, took part.

      In 1816 he accompanied his children to Alfred, Allegany County, NY, the eldest, Luke, having preceeded them, and took a farm in the eastern part of town. They were among the eighty pioneer families of Alfred. Here the rest of their lives were spent.

      He was a man vigorous in mind and in body. He was the first judge of Madison County, and in his later years was known as "Judge" Edward. A veteran of two wars, his autograph, written at the age of eighty-four is bold and firm.
