Hester Crispin Green

Looking for information on Hester Crispin Green. She was married to Joseph Green in Philadelphia, PA. I have several documented marriage dates:

August 20, 1701 Family bible recording
August 20, 1771 (Pennsylvania Vital Records, Vol ll,)

There is also a marriage record for:

Crispin, ESTHER and Joseph Green
Aug 25, 1761

I also have a Birth date: 1750 (American Genealogical-BiorgraphicalnIndex) for Hester Crispin.

Robert C. (Crispin) Green

I know I am a direct descendant of Silas Crispin and am trying to document this. My 4th generation grandfather was Robert Cripsin Geen...Robert C. Green. He was buried in the Ol' Crispin Cemetery along with Silas Crispin and Thomas Holmes. Robert C. Green was appointed and served on the Board of Trustee's as the Treasurer for the ol' Crispin Cemetery...also known as the Crispin Burial Ground Cemetery Corperation. Later his son, Charles C. (Cottman) Green took over this responsibiliy as Trustee for the Ol' Crispin Cemetery.

Here's what I know as a fact. I know that Robert C. Green had to be a direct descendant to be buried in the Crispin Cemetery. I know that Robert Crispin Green was either the son OR grandson of Joseph C. (Cottman I think) Green and Hester Crispin. I have documented (State of PA) marriage records that state Joseph and Hester were married in Philadelphia on Aug. 20, 1771. I also have a document from the Pa Marriage Records (First Presbyrerian Church of Philadelphia, Pa) that states Crispin, Ester and Joseph Green were married Aug 25, 1761 . My bible states Joseph Green and Hester Crispin were married in 1701, and that Robert was their grandson. No wonder I'm confused.

Here's my problem. I can NOT find proof of who Hester Crispin's parents were. I believe she was born in 1751 in Philadelphia. I can NOT find proof of who my grandfather Robert Crispin Green's parents were.
