Sharon, I am most interested in hearing from any Greenup descendant. I have written 2 books on the family tracing the records of the descendants of the first Greenup (William), who died in Prince George's County, MD ca 1712; through his son John who got a land grant in what is now Frederick Co., MD; and his son John who sold the land and went down the Shenandoah to what is now Tazewell Co., VA. Gov. Greenup is believed to have been the youngest son of John who sold Red Oak Slipe, the family plantation at about the time Christopher was 18-19 years old. He left the family and went to Loudon Co. VA where he studied law with a Col. Binns. He had 2 sons, Wilson Pope Greenup who died unmarried in Kentucky and Christopher C. who went to Florida Territory with his sister Nancy Peyton Greenup Gamble after studying law with his uncle John Pope. He did not return to Kentucky. I believe the family you mention is from his brother Samuel Greenup. Elise
