Notes:
In New Haven, Captain Daniel Green, who had a comfortable fortune as owner of the clipper ship, Neptune, had a plan made for his garden dated 1815, which are still in existence. The house in which the captain lived was built before the Revolution. The image that AAG has shows that it had been architecturally changed in detail, though the main buildings are as they were. The property has been destroyed by an Interstate Connection and no longer exists.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Ralph Isaac (former owner, 1771-1795); Catain Daniel Greene (former owner, 1795-1832); James Brewster (former owner, 1832-1844); and Mr. Thomas Guernsey (former owner, 1881).
Summary:
The folders include worksheets, copies of 1815 property map, 1979 township map, and 1997 newspaper article on Greene.
