I think I may have information that is helpful to you. On a family history my mom gave me, Elizabeth Green was listed as having been married, or at least producing two children by Jean Buyance or Boyance. He would be my grandfathers, great grandfather. I have the information at home, I am at work now and will do my best to get it to you, I suspect we are talking about the same Elizabeth Green.
My grandfather was Alex Buyance, he is the son of Jean and his second wife Marie Olivier Buyance. Records indicate he remarried afterhis first wife died. There are about 6 siblings in that family some from the first family and my grandfather and his brother from the second.
