* Eliza Ann CRAIG was buried in the CRAIG Family cemetry. Nancy Skyes took care of the burial of her father which died later after Eliza and it is noted only buried in the country, therefore,not known to where Rev. William H. Green which founded the Green Chapel is actually buried. William was born at Salmons’ Branch Creek in Houston County, TN ……. he served as Post Master.. he was injuried falling of his horse in the Civil War.

Any information to this family is greatly appreciated.

It is founded that a link that after John Green died, Viny could have married James Parrish as there is a note to this as they had a daughter Virginia Parrish that died at the age of 4 and buried in the Craig Cemetery in Maury County. If you refer to that notation. There are some Green’s buried there as well which do not make sense to me ……. thus far in my research.

H E L P. Thank you.

Many thanks to the late William Nesbitt, which his grandmother was a Green and he took me to her burial site. . . not having a tombstone at the time. He wanted help in locating her father, which is Eldridge Green born in VA ~
