Thomas Green, loyalist, Butler's Rangers
Posted by: Peggy Welch Mershon (ID *****4177) Date: January 02, 2011 at 08:55:42

I'm looking for information on the family of Thomas Green, who enlisted and deserted Feb. 18, 1776 (yes, the same day!) from Capt. Rudolph Bunner’s Co., Col. Arthur St. Clair’s and Col. Joseph Wood’s Pennsylvania Battalion; was a member of the British unit, Butler's Rangers, at least from Dec. 25, 1777-Oct.24, 1778. The History of Bradford County PA 1770-1878, David Craft said, "Tom Green, as he was usually called by the people here, belonged to a respectable Whig family, who were settled at Binghamton before the Revolutionary war, and subsequently removed to the West Branch. He was a most bitter and virulent Royalist." He also may have married a Mohawk woman and may be the Thomas Green who fled to the Ohio Country after 1778 and helped establish the Delaware Indian village of Greentown in what is now Ashland County, Ohio.
