Does anyone know of anyone with the last name Green or Greene from Cottonplant, Ar. My grandfather is from there and he supposedly left there at an early age in a box on the river and changed his name to Johnny Cross. Gud was all back when slavery was legal. He ended up in Cairo Il & married w/ 6 children. He is more deceased. He never talked about it or told anyone what happened. He was said to have a some sisters & one I believe name was Emmie or Emma. We are just trying to find some of our family that we have never met before on my grandfather's side. Anyone with information please respond to this post or email me at qionte99@gmail.com. Thanks to all.

We have never met any of these people & know nothing of dem. We are just trying to see if we can locate or find out something about my grandfather's family.
