Green Cleveland in your list is Green Harp Cleveland. He was my great-grandfather. He married Calista Thomas Shehee. I was two year old when she died. He had died many years earlier. Her daughter, Sophie Jule Cleveland, married Robert Jackson Ingle. Sophie Jule was my grandmother who lived until the late 1980's. Her daughter, Calista Mary Ingle, was my mother. Thanks, Joy Shelton Warren
