Could you please give me the names of your grandmothers as well as an approximate time in which Greenfield Snow and Joseph Breeden were born. I would be willing to search for information for you, but the additional info would be helpful.

I will be going to the library next week to do look ups in the Greene County Record. Do you wish for me to look up any obituaries? Do you have a subscription to Ancestry.com? Again this would be helpful so I don't do work that has already been done! May I ask what state you live in? I am here in Charlottesville, Virginia so I have easy access to a great deal of records. Will be going to Greene County next week as well for more look ups at the clerk's office.
Marie

I appreciate any help. I live in Fredericksburg Va. Are you a relative? I have been to the courthouse in Standardsville a long time ago. I am now disabled and don't travel long distances and my finances do not let me go either

Hi, Marie,
I'm writing you under this subject as I read you would be going to a library to do look-ups in the Greene County Record. I have been looking for my great grandparents death records for some time now. The problem: so many Morris' in Greene County, VA, a good guess is all I have come up with. My great grandfather was John Miley Morris born about 1848 and died (an educated guess) between 1895 and 1900. He married Jane Marie Morris on March 15, 1878 in Greene County, VA. Jane died about 1917. Their last child was born in January, 1896 in Monroe District, Greene County, VA, where I find the family on the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census. I find Jane with the remainder of the children in 1900, and 1910, but no John.

I live in Chicago and am in the process of giong through records of the LDS at their center, but still do not see these great grandparents. If you would be so kind as to look I would be so grateful.

Thanks,
Terri

Hi, Leo,

I went to Greene County, Monroe District (which is supposed to be the Dyke area) two years ago and there were so many Morris' I got very lost as to what I wanted to know. My great grandfather, John Miley Morris, was born abt. 1848 in VA and died between 1895 and 1900. John married Jane Marie Morris on March 15, 1878 in Greene County, Va. Jane died abt. 1917. Originally I was looking for the cemetery where they were buried, but I ended up at what I thought was a dead end street in Dyke. I find out later that I should have gone further because there are three cemeteries up on the side of a mountain.

John Miley Morris and Jane Marie Morris' children:
1.Clinton Morris b. Nov 1878; d. Aft. 1968
Married Lilly
2. Clarlotte (Lottie) Morris b. Nov 1879 in Greene County, VA; d. March 1974 in Swoope, Augusta County, VA; she married James Ernest Knight, Sr.
3. Robert S. Morris b. 1883 in VA
4. Jeanetta (Nettie) Morris b. May 18, 1884; d. March 26, 1968 in Elkton, Rockingham County, VA; she married William Robert Shifflett on Aug 24, 1916 in Rockingham County, VA.
5. Lula A. Morris b. Mar 1887 in Monroe District, Greene County, VA (we don't know who her husband was, but she had three children.
6. Ada Clinbell Morris b. Aug 10, 1889 in Monroe District, Greene County, VA, d. July 6, 1981 Staunton, Augusta County, VA; she married John Amos Downey on Apr 10, 1910 in Staunton, Augusta County, VA.
7. Josephine (Josie) Morris b. Nov 15, 1892 in VA; d. April 15, 1972 in Craigsville, Augusta County, VA. She married Robert Edward Morris.
8. Lessie F. Morris b. Jan 1896 in VA. She married George Morris.

I would appreciate any information you might have on this family as I am pretty I have more Morris' marrying Morris' than is legally allowable. I'm not sure.

Thanks,
Terri

Leo,

From my research on the history of Greene County, census research and additional sources, I have discovered that Newt Breeden and Greenfield Snow both lived a part of their lives up in what is now Shenandoah National Park (the Pocosin area). In the 1920s, Greenfield was living in a cabin with his son Charlie, not far from Skyline Drive and close to the current PATC Posocin Cabin.

Are you related to either Charlie Breeden (b. circa 1866), Ella Breeden Shifflett, or Preston Breeden (b. circa 1917)?
