Need parents of WILLIAM GREEN, born February 6, 1762 in Prince Edward county, Virginia, and died in Haywood county, North Carolina on March 2, 1837. William Green married KEZZIAH PATTON in Orange county, NC in 1781 during the American Revolution. William Green was a prisioner of war when General Lincoln surrendered the Southern Continental Army at Charleston, South Carolina. William and Kezziah Patton Green moved to Burke county, NC in about 1785 and later moved to Haywood county, NC about 1815, where William Green apparently lived until his death. Kezziah Green apparently went to Georgia about 1830 with her two sons, Anderson and William Green, born about 1786 in Burke county, NC. William Green (2) was my gg-grandfather, and he married Nancy Porter in Burke county, NC in about 1811. Both are buried in Carroll county, Georgia, along with Kezziah Patton Green.
