Because the names of Green, Addis and Demund have become so intertwined with the Osmun and Linderman families we have tried with the help of the Hettie Green Spear scrapbook of obits and articles to reconstruct the families. All our gratitude to Ted Spear, her great grandson for sending them and correlating many of the facts set forth in the chapter of the Green families.
Because we knew there was a son of Samuel Green named Morris Green years ago and census was not indexed at the time, we thought John's son Morris was indeed our own Morris Green. The Morris we were looking for was Samuel's son, but John's Morris was almost the same age. Because of that error, it has sent us on a quest with the help of cousin Ray E. Addis' articles. He wrote them for the Centennial Anniversary issue of the Holly Press 30 June 1938 and a copy of which is at the Holly Library, we will try to reconstruct the following families.
Some 32 years ago we went to visit Ray and his wife in Holly. Only because we knew from an early age that our grandfather Nelson E. Osmun's sister Effie had married George Washington Addis. Ray's home was an unbelievably beautiful home with two of the largest Siamese cats you could ever see. He owned and cherished the hand written manuscripts of our cousin Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, including her 1939 Pulitzer winner "The Yearling." Hoping that they were preserved we visited his widow years later only to find that she had burned them because, we assume, she thought that Ray and Marjorie had more than just a cousin relationship.
At the time, Ray told us that he too referred to Aunt Effie as Aunt Effie. Until now, we didn't know why! Since we didn't know that Ray was suffering from cancer we didn't know the reason for the anger he exhibited when we mentioned the fact that Aunt Effie's husband George Washington Addis had committed suicide. As we age, we realize that when Ray said, "every man has the right to do whatever he deems necessary with his own body," that the time might come when the fear of death is no longer as great as the fear of living!
The New Jersey Archives 1:XIX:pg 324 states that Axford and Green settled near Green Pond in 1730.
Marius Groen was a name used much in the late 1600's and through the 1700's (Baptismal and Marriage Registers of the Old Dutch Ch. of Kingston,Ulster Co. N.Y. 1660 - 1809 Roswell Randall Hoes 1891)
Maurice Green thought to be the son of Richard and Eleanor (Demont/Demond) Green b. Green Pond, N.J. 15 May 1750 bpt. First Presyterian Church NYC 28 Apr 1771 (NYG&B 9:117)
The fact his second son was named Richard, this is probably true, but we have not proven the fact. We are using Richard as the first Green.
To date we have not identified his wife although because all the children known to us named their first daughter Rebecca which might indict that she was indeed named Rebecca with the last name of VanSlyke or Maybury. Again the proof is lacking.

Samuel supposedly served in War of 1812 but we have been unable to confirm this. No records other than DAR Soldiers of 1812 buried in Michigan tells of his service.
Came to Michigan ca 1836 and paid tax on 120 acres in Ind. and 120 acres in Holly Twp. Oc (these lands were bought by a John Green in 1836 and according to Ray E. Addis article it was his brother John. We think it may have been his son John. Appraisers for Samuel's estate were Betsey's brothers Israel and John Osmun.
Nicholas Yorton came to Michigan 1836 from Madison Co. New York with his family and also settled in Holly twp.
Although this is a Osmun Genealogy, we have used the male line of descent. All the Green family of Samuel is one generation less on the Osmun family and should read that person, in line of then Green, Elizabeth2 Osmun, John1.

Wm. Green, Holly's oldest resident was buried at Lakeside Cem. 95yrs old Thursday afternoon following funeral services at the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Green died Tuesday, at the home of his dau. Mrs. Grace Merrick in Ann Arbor.
For years Mr. Green was in the ice business here. He also was a gardener and nursery man and planted the row of maples on Maple Ave. which led to the naming of the street. He had been a resident of Holly for 75yrs. In addition to the dau., a son Herbert of Chicago, survives him.
Tree planted honored: Holly. An unassuming citizen who never held public office acclaim is to be honored as one of Holl's most valuable citizens with a bronze plaque to beplaced in Crapo park. He was William Green, a devoted lover of trees, who set out many of the trees which now shade the village street. He was particularly responsible for the two rows of maples on Maple St. The tablet will be unveiled at the Holly - Detroit picnic in the park next year.

"When I was just a boy, my father and I would go to Marlette to see Uncle Leo. At the time I don't think I quite understood that he was my granfather's brother. I still refer to it as Uncle Leo's, but whenever I sit and list to my dad's cousins they always call it "grandma's house." They have such fond memories of going there to see Grandma Hettie and to play in the barn and ride the horses. To them grandma made the best pies and cookies they ever had.
I can still picture Uncle Leo sitting in his chair, in that seven bedroom farmhouse, by an old wood burning stove that was his only source of heat. As a child, none of this seemed out of the ordinary, even though the calendar would eventually read 1978, this place seemed to be frozen in time.
Leo's grandfather, Moses Gardner Spear, had originally purchased the property in 1848, from his wife's brother, Seth Lount, who had received the land for military service. And it was here that Moses' son, George Lount Spear, would build his home and bring his young bride, Hettie Green, from his native city of Pontiac. All eight of their children would be born here, and it would be one of the finest farms in Lamotte Township, with its front yard beautifully adorned with flowers. The house and barn are now gone, but the memories still linger on." Ted Spear

Many years ago we went to look for Aunt Fanny (Osmun) Traphagen's farm. There was a man in the barn across from the house and said, "If you would like to know about the farm, go up to the first house on your right and talk to the woman there as she use to own this farm." My husband sat in the car for four hours while we talked of old family. When I returned to the car I was sure Wilma and I were related. A few months later we returned to her home to ask her about the Traphagen Cem. that had been moved when she was a child. She told of Uncle Abijah Osmun giving the children in the neighborhood, rides on the sleigh. And of the removal of a glass coffin with the body of an uncle, whose name escapes me now. How the coffin was disinterred, and the air hit the glass, the body just crumbled to dust.
She and her husband had built this new home north of the old farm. She had lost her husband and her only child. Her son in law Harold Lawrence came as we were leaving.
Farmers, and life member of Fenton Lakes Sportsman Club. A personal friend and one lovely woman, she lived in the nursing home, blinded from glaucoma and with only grandchildren left to mourn her.
