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 descendant of Silas Crispin and am trying to document this. My 4th generation grandfather was Robert Cripsin Geen... 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 is a descendant of Thomas Crispin. I know that Robert Crispin Green was son of Joseph 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.

Robert Crispin Green was born on May 29, 1786 in Lower Dublin, Philadelphia, PA. He died on Oct 26, 1881 at the age of 95 and is buried in the Old Pennepack Baptist Church Cemetery.

Robert's father was Joseph Green, born Jan. 11, 1767 in Evasham, Burington, New Jersey, died Sept. 6, 1831 in Pilesgrove, Salem County, NJ. Robert's mother was Hester (Hetty) Crispiin, Daughter of William Cripsin and Rachel (Wharton). She was born May 9, 1769 in Evesham, Burlington, New Jersey and died March 4, 1835 in Pilesgrove, Salem County, N.J. These dates are not confirmed but have been provided by family members.

Robert Crispin Green was married twice and had 8 children; three were from his first wife Hannah (Snyder) Green who he married on April 5, 1812.
