Thomas Greer (immigrant) married Susannah (thought to be 'Whiteside')is my earliest ancestor. When you refer to James Greer, what year was he born? Where did he live? There are two Carolina Greer Groups. One group decended from the Greers of Gunpowder River, MD, and the other is my group. They originally settled in Fayetteville, arriving through a port in Wilmington about 1740-1746. There is also a group of Greers of Mecklenburg County, NC, descended from James Greer b. 1710. Which James do you refer to?
