from History of Huntingdon and Blair Counties, Pennsylvania

Elisha Greene, a native of Maryland, became a citizen of Oneida about 1800. He settled first on Warrior's Ridge, but not liking the location made his home in the valley near Donation, where he had a fine sugar-camp, which proved very useful to him in early times.

He died in April, 1863, on the property now owned by his grandson, Barton Greene. Of his sons,

Charles lived and died in the neighborhood. He was a carpenter by trade, and made many of the arcs which floated down the Juniata. The second son,

George, lived on the homestead until his death in 1870, aged seventy-eight years. He was the father of Foster, Barton, and Charles Greene, the former removing to Illinois, and Barton being a merchant at Huntingdon.

Elijah, the third son, also died on part of the homestead about 1847. For many years previous he was a helpless invalid. His sons were Robert Greene, of Huntingdon; John, of Miller township; Elisha and James, of Oneida.

The daughters of Elisha Greene married James Stewart, Nicholas Decker, and the father of Dr. J. G. Camp, who lives on a part of the Greene tract, in the northern part of Oneida.
