From 1782 to 1787 Benjamin Green paid taxes in Loudon Co., VA. After Allegany Co., MD was surveyed in 1788 he seems to have moved to the land there that he received as a military grant for his services in the Revolutionary War. In the spring of 1799, Green & his son-in-law Richard Pitzer left Allegheny Co. Md., and lived one year at Marietta, Ohio. In spring of 1800 they moved their families to the junction of the North & South forks of Licking River, and settled on Shawnee Run, then moved on to Hog Run, in Licking Co., OH.
