Green County was created in 1792 from Lincoln and Nelson Counties and was named for General Nathaniel Greene of the Revolutionary War fame. This volume of the history and biographical sketches of the county are taken from two sources, History of Kentucky by Lewis Collins in 1882 and KENTUCKY: A History of the State by W. H. Perin, J. H. Battle and G. C. Kniffin in 1885. These biographies were submitted by the families themselves and therefore, are more accurate than other records.

Example from this volume:

“Captain Samuel W. Moore was born March 28, 1828, six miles south of Greensburg, KY, and is the son of John and Margaret (Moore) Moore, who reared five sons and four daughters. John Moore was born in 1802, south of Greensburg; when a child lost his parents, after which he was taken to Granger [sic] County, Tenn., by his grandfather; when he became of age he returned to Kentucky, where h remained during his life. etc...etc... “
