ID: I0091
Name: Greene Jr. BENTLEY
Sex: M
Birth: 8 JAN 1778 in Warwick, Orange county, NY
Death: 10 NOV 1820 in Catherine, Tioga county, NY
Reference Number: 91
Note:
Not a great deal is known about Green Jr. In "The Report of the State Historian", he is listed in Tioga County, 79th regiment, in 1812 as "Green Bentley, junior, ensign"; in 1818 as a lieutenant in the 79th regiment of infantry; in 1820 he has been promoted to captain in the same unit (there is no month for this entry, however, you will note we have his death date as November 11, 1820. We know he was alive at the time of the 1820 census. The enumeration is usually performed in the summer - June to August, but at some point the "offical date" became June 01 - all persons alive as of June 1st). The entry for 1822 is "....Bently, deceased; Oliver Greeno, lieutenant.."
Perhaps Green Jr. had made the military his career. He certainly was involved in the state militia for a long period of time.
We have no evidence in the form of official documents, but according to an article about his father, Greene Sr., written by Herbert A. Wisbey Jr., he served in the War of 1812. Further research might resolve this question. (June 2000 - Form 180 sent to NARA in an attempt to resolve this question. 7-29-00 NARA has no record-suggests contacting NY State)
Greene Jr preceded his father in death by about three years.

In 1800 Greene Jr and Benjamin, sons of Greene Sr., were listed in the Census of Newtown and had not yet joined their father in Catherine. Neither Greene Jr nor Benjamin was old enough to have a grown son in 1800 and no Bentley researcher of whom we are aware, has ever attributed a son John to Greene Sr. (COULD this John have been a son of JAMES BENTLY--assuming that James was the brother of Greene SR?)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In a letter from a Bentley researcher to the Chemung County Historian (January 22, 1951) we find that Wellsburg Baptist Church records show Greene Jr was in trouble on two occasions in 1800, April 16 and again on May 3, for "sugar boiling on the Sabboth" - do you sppose the little dickens was making some 'white lightening'?
We know Cornelius Hopper got in trouble for 'hard drinking'.

History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins, and Schuyler Counties New York Chapter LVI
Veteran
.....The first white man who settled in this town was Green Bently, who was born in Rhode Island, and immigrated with several other families to Warwick, Orange County,.............. they reached the place now known as Wellsburg. Here he purchased 300 acres at this point, with the Creek, since known by his name, enters the Chemung River. Here he remained until 1798, when he sold out, and bought 300 acres of land, on a part of which Millport now stands, and built a log house on the west side of the highway, directly opposite the old house afterwards built by his son, Green Bently, Jr., where Mrs. Oliver Greene now lives.
His remains now rest in a little burying ground on the old Bently farm, a short distance below Millport. ........
The stream from the west which enters Catharine Creek at that point has since been known as "Hubbard's run." Green Bently, Jr., next built a log house south of where P. S. Tanner lives.
...............From this time the settlements spread to the Southeast. In 1803, Abiard Lattin, with his two sons, came from Fairfield County, Connecticut, and settled on the farm................
