I have a copy of some records from an old tattered Green Family Bible. The first record is: "Rev. James Green departed this life on the 19th day of November 1856 in Cherokee Co. Texas 9 miles east of the town of (unreadable), age 78 years."

> And the next:
> "------- Green, the wife of James Green departed this life on the 11th April 1868 in Robinson Co., died at the house of Hiram Walkers her son, age 87 years as near as we can tell."
>
> We do not know where Rev. James Green was buried. Do you have a record of any Green burials in that period of time in Cherokee Co.? Rev. James Green may have officiated at marriages and funerals in Cherokee Co. in the years previous to 1856. I have not found any in my searching, and wonder if there is any record of his participation in such events.

> We do not know who Hiram Walker is, or where he lived--not a son, surely, but probably a son-in-law. And perhaps lived in Robertson Co.(there is no Robinson Co.), but perhaps Hiram Walker was married to a Green daughter in Cherokee Co.

I would be glad to submit the records from this Old Family Bible to the Cherokee Co. webpage, but my ancestor (Timothy Wilson Green, son of this James Green & Mrs. Green) was in Freestone and Leon Co., and records of his children's births more properly apply to those counties. The above is the only reference to Cherokee Co. Two other records, perhaps also sons of James Green are Thomas Green b July 7 18-9, and William Green born Jan 21 1814.

I appreciate very much your interest in genealogy and fforts to help others in their quests for information on their ancestors. And more precisely, I appreciate your efforts in my behalf on the family above.
