The Green Side of the Family

Just a couple photos from the Green side (my mother's) of the family. This is Georgia Green in 1927, age 20. Georgia Green, 1927
And the following two were taken around Christmas, 1988. Georgia and her three daughters: Betty, Julie and Sarah. And Kate with her mother Susan, Grandmother Sarah and Great-grandmother Georgia.

Variation on a theme. Georgia, Sarah, Susan and Kate 1987?
Georgia and Fred Green and descendants Julie provided some hand drawn family trees that Georgia and Betty put together during one of Betty's visits at Georgia's house in South Clinton.

Below are audio (MP3) files of Georgia Green interviewed by her daughter, Sarah Williams.
These may work best by downloading and playing locally; they are each about 30 minutes long and about 40MB. (And the DSL line here is not too fast...) Be ready to turn up the volume, it's pretty quiet.

First voice on Interview One is Sarah; second is Georgia; third (about halfway in) is Loren Williams Jr. The interviews were for Loren III, Steve and David to better understand that side of the family (their maternal grandmother and family). I don't know where the notes are that Sarah is clearly taking.

  • Interview One (Georgia's childhood and the Courthouse)
  • Interview Two (Georgia gardening, the Grove Avenue house, motorcycle ride, Bristol, Port Jarvis, NY and Fred)
  • Interview Three (health, names, Granddaddy's death, marriage to Fred, teaching, Norton, Georgia's and Fred's parents, woodpecker interview interruption, religion, Blanche living in the house, Sarah inspecting the Bristol Health Center where she was born)
  • Interview Four (Fred going in the post office, family myths: schooling and Julie's studies, values, china closet distribution, another bird interruption, alcohol use, other family health issues, nicknames: Jimmy, Scissorbill, Betty going to MCV, The Great Clothesline Pole story)
