    Notes 
    • Some people believe that Adam also married a woman with the surname of Spry/Sprey/Pry/Opry, but this is based on the wording of a Sprey will that mentions several Greene family members. It is believed that relationship is a half-sibling relationship, through the mother, and therefore not on the Benbow side. People sometimes haven't researched long enough to learn that previous generations often didn't specify the exact degree of such family relationships. In older wills, for instance, a brother-in-law would often be called a brother without the qualifier. Unawareness of these differences can lead people to the wrong conclusions.
