About Adam Greenwood

The Greenwoods--Adam Hartley and Sara Elizabeth--live with their daughters in Portland, Oregon. Adam Hartley Greenwood comes from a line of several Adam Hartley Greenwoods, going back to William Greenwood and his wife Ann Hartley who joined the church in Liverpool during the 1840s. The Greenwood line settled in northeastern Arizona, near the White Mountains. Adam is related to most any Mormon from Nutrioso, Springerville, or Eagar, AZ, or Luna or Ramah, NM. Adam particularly cherishes the memory of Jacob Hamblin, the peacemaker, and Elijah Carter, the half-Choctaw orphan boy who grew up to be Sheriff, dying in the line of duty. Adam is also descended from the Williams of Mesa, AZ, and through them from Abraham Hunsaker. Sara Elizabeth descends on her mother's side from Willard Richards and Lot Smith, and also has ties to northeastern Arizona. On her father's side she comes from several generations of Presbyterian missionaries to China and Japan.
