Re: Captain Rinaldo McKeen Greene 6th AL Regt

I believe there were four brothers and McKeen probably the youngest. At one time, I believe theMcKeen Green brother and or descendants thought they might be kin to Nathaniel Greene, but later tossed that idea out. My interest has always been the wife of the brother, Benjamin Greene. He was married to Eleanor (?) and had the son, James Rinaldo Nicks. He married Frances Fair in Charleston, SC in Nov. 1831 moving to Thomasville, Thomas Co., GA and later (1833) moved to just inside the GA/FL line in Leon Co., FL. Eleanor and Elizabeth Harrison Fair Nicks must have arranged several marriages and continued to move with the Fair family until she died in Girard, AL c1845.]
