    • Mary Shaw Greene wrote that Silence was a widow from Scituate, Massachusetts without evidence. Arnold's entry for the marriage reads [Greene] "Timothy, of W. Greenwich, and Silence Burlingame, widow, of Scituate; m. at Coventry by Elder James Colvin, Sept, 22 1751". The fact that Scituate is not specifically said to be in Massachusetts, suggests that Silence was from Scituate, Rhode Island, as other states are commonly named in these records. [1, 3]
    Notes 
    • A record of the births in the Greene family is given in the following, which is a transcription of a copy of a note written by Sarah Mallory Baker, who had copied the original record. In her note Sarah Baker states explicitly that Huldah was the daughter of Elder Timothy Greene. Sarah personally knew Huldah. Mrs. Percy Barker copied Sarah's note and sent it to Maud Martin Latham via Eva Sowden in 1956. My comments in [ ]. Sarah's note said:

      "Elder Timothy Green & Silence Rowland marriage September y 21 day 1751 old stile, also their death old stile
      Timothy Green born June y 14 day 1725 week 2 day between 12 & 1 in the afternoon Silence Green born July ye 17 Day 1729 week y 5 Day old stile [i.e. Silence Rowland Burlingame]

      [Burlingame written in the margin and tied to Roulen, who was apparently her son by her first marriage.]

      Roulen her first born March y 1 Day 1749 week 4 day between 9 & 10 at night - 3

      Elisabath the second born March ye 25 1771 - weeks the 4 Day 4 in the morning.

      This is a true copy from an old record as exact as I could possibly make it - I have endeavored to preserve the quaint old manner of the orthography of a hundred and twenty years ago.

      For Thomas Horner and the posterity of my Dear Mother-in-law Mrs Huldah Baker. who was daughter of Elder Timothy Green and Grandmother to the children of Mrs Olive Horner of Burford, W.C.
