Job Greene & Merebah Carr

The Greene family seems to be pretty well documented. Almost all of my research on them comes from a book. 255 years ago today, on 2 February 1757, my 6 Great grandparents were married. Here is what is written on their family:

New England families, genealogical and memorial Vol 4
William Richard Cutter
pg 2152, 2191

(IV) Job Greene, son of Henry Greene, was born at West Greenwich, March 2, 1735, and died in Vermont, January 25, 1792. He married, at West Greenwich, February 2, 1757, Meribah Carr, daughter of Caleb and Sarah Carr, the ceremony being performed by Isaac Sheldon, justice of the peace. She was born July 14, 1739, died July 12, 1785. They moved to Halifax, Vermont, and afterward went farther north. In 1790, according to the first federal census, the sons, Job and Nathan, were at St. Albans, Vermont, and Job had in his family one son under sixteen and two females; Nathan had himself and wife.
