I'm glad that I checked the several messages that regard Green Carrier on this site. I have to say that I also found what both you and C. Stoltz did, a daughter born in l771 in New York, subsequently marrying a Benjamin Raynor. The source that I found on the Long Island genealogy site gave a marriage date of l797 for Rebecca and Benjamin though. As a loyalist, probably Long Island during the Revolution would not be too uncomfortable, as I believe that it was occupied pretty much for the duration of the war. If Green married Hannah in Huntington, L.I. in 1778, I wonder if Rebecca's mother was from that area as well? It would not even be uncommon for him to have married a sister or relative of his first wife. Could there be a baptism record in Huntington or in Babylon? I know of a family from Lyme, who were in Suffolk County just before the Revolution, moved back to town, but most of the children were baptised at the same time in Mattituck, NY.
It would appear that Green left with his wife and two children under 10 when he left for Annapolis in l782, re: passenger and immigration lists index.
I'll check in Colchester and Hebron to see if there is any further mention of him around and after his marriage to Hannah. If you have additional ideas, please let me know.
