I can't determine any connection between the Greenways of Rowan Co NC and those of Craig Co VA; the Craig Co group moved there from Frederick Co VA. My ancestor George Greenway, a veteran of the Rev. War, was b. c1750-1755, son of William and Mary Stevens Greenway. There was also a son William (Jr.) who moved to Washington Co VA; and a possible son, John Joseph, who d. c1793 in Alexandria VA. There was another set of Greenways in VA in the 1700's - in the area south of Richmond/Petersburg, but as far as I know, they are unconnected (at least closely enough to trace) to mine.
