Thanks for your input! The Thomas Green of New Brunswick remains a possibility since he may have gone to Canada from Ohio since he was a loyalist. There are a number of stories about him in connection with Greentown in Ashland County, Ohio, but none from the earliest white settlers that they actually met him, as they did other residents of Greentown. This leads me to believe either he was dead by, say, 1805, or had moved on. In Pennsylvania history accounts, his family came from Connecticut through what is now New York into Pennsylvania. I am exploring a Fairfield, Ct., family. Ebenezer Green and Elizabeth Gilbert had a son, Thomas, b 1753, and members of that family seemed to have followed the same route as the Butler Rangers' Thomas, who I strongly suspect is the Greentown Thomas. While that Thomas Green's family is said, in one history, as living on the West Bend of the Susquehanna, at least during the war, they very possibly could have gone to Canada at any time, since they were loyalists, but also it's a possibiliy at least some had a change of heart and remained. Any clues within this family is appreciated.
