    • Barzilla Green Family - History of Claiborne Parish
      BY Susan T. Herring Editor, The Guardian-Journal

      John and Elizabeth Green brought ten of their eleven children to settle the new frontier, just east of Summerfield, not far from the site of the old Hunt Gasoline Plant.

      Only their eldest son, Wiley, chose to stay in Mississippi. Those who traveled to Claiborne Parish were:

      1. Nancy M. Green, b. bet. 1812- 1820, m. James Greer,
      2. Sarah Green, b. abt. 1815, m. Benjamin Franklin Greer,
      3. Aquilla Green, b. abt. 1815, m. Cynthia Mason,
      4. Elizabeth Green, b. bet. 1820- 1828, m. Thomas C. Boyt,
      5. Henry W. Green, b. 1822, m. 1) Easter Young, 2) Martha Ann Chiddens,
      6. E. G. Green, b. bet. 1820-1825,
      7. Barzilla Green, b. 1826, m. Susan Elizabeth Boyt,
      8. Hester Ann Green, b. 1829, m. Alexander Smith,
      9. William W. Green, b. 1831, m. Martha, and
      10. Moses Green, b. 1833, m. Missouri Childers.

      Susan Elizabeth Boyt was not quite 13 years old when she married 18-year-old Barzilla Green. On the same day his sister Elizabeth Green married her brother, Thomas Boyte.

      Over the next 25 years, Barzilla and Susan would have eleven more children: Moses, Francis Marion (m. Martha Hopper), Elizabeth (m. Thomas Pilgreen), Thomas Jefferson, George Washington (m. Mahana Wise), Jasper Newton (m. 1) Zona Gray, 2) Carrie Bodie), Wiley Beauregard (m. Sarah McLeland), James Martin (m. Nattie Moncrief), John Wesley (m. Georgia Tanner), William Jesse (m. Lillian Wise), and Sarah Hester (m. Richard McLeland).

      Today all that remains of Barzilla and Susan is a small cemetery on their old homeplace and hundreds of descendants, many who still live here today. In the "Barzille Greene Cemetery" are only four graves surrounded by a chain link fence. T
      he markers bear the names of Barzille, Susan, and two sons, Thomas and Moses.

      Barzille Greene, born June 2, 1826, died Oct. 24, 1903, Aged 77 ys. 4 ms. 22 ds. "He Died As He Lived Trusting In God."

      Susan Elizabeth Boyte, wife of Barzille Greene, born Oct. 27, 1831, died May 26, 1912, Aged 81 ys. 6 ms. 9 ds. "Into Thy Hands I Commend my Spirit."

      Thomas J. Greene, born Jan 29, 1855, died Nov. 4, 1873, aged 18 yr 9 mo 5 ds, "Gone But Not Forgotten."

      Moses Greene, born Sept. 6, 1848, died Feb 8, 1860, aged 11 yr 5 mos 2 ds, "Sleep on Dear Child, and Take Thy Rest In Jesus' Arms Forever Blest."

      Moses died when a burning tree fell on him while watching the men fight a fire, just after his mother had refused to give him something to eat. From then on, she always kept something in the house for the kids to snack on, thinking it could have prevented the accident.

      Some of the Green descendants who still reside in Claiborne Parish are James Edward Scriber, Greg Scriber, Angela McCurry, Martha Clements, Angela Kennedy, Jerry Clements, Keith Beard, Brenda Odom, Larry Dean, Melissa Caskey, Belinda Perry, Larry Dean, Jr., Dean Busby, Stacey Busby, Loy Weaver, Alyson Heckel, Erline Richardson, Jimmy Bailey, Kay Doggett, Robert W. Bailey, Ometa Gathright, Patricia Honeycutt, Mike Tomlinson, Carolyn Haynes, Dr. Mark Haynes, Mrs. Robert Tippitt, Fred Parker, James Green, Jimmy Green, Freddie Boyett, Kent Boyett, Bobby Scriber, Glenn Scriber, Larry Scriber, and Clifton Jackson.
