Looking for any of these names in Hants County: James, John, or Henry Greene with Loyalist roots - prob. 84th Regiment of Foot. Henry was born at Grand Lake, Shubenacadie ca. 1820 +/- a few yrs (not sure exact date). His father is believed to be John Greene and his mother's name may have been Margaret. Henry married Margaret Meagher - his parents' names are found in marriage record. He died walking home in a storm and is written up in the book called History of Dartmouth. Henry and Margaret had several children - one of whom was William Henry Greene who owned a livery stable in Dartmouth and was one of the first investors in electricity for the city. William Henry had a son named John Henry Greene who "ran away" from home with one of their livery wagsons. John eventually made it to the west coast, then settled in Alberta, married Doris (?) May Hicks.
