    Biographical / Historical

    Most of these papers relate to the Greene family of New England. Primarily the material concerns the immediate and extended family of Benjamin Greene (1764-1822) and his wife Mary Grew Greene (circa 1764-1817), especially relating to their daughter, Ann Terry Greene Phillips (1813-1886). Ann Terry Greene Phillips became the wife of Wendell Phillips (1811-1884), the abolitionist and orator.
