    This record, found in the HPs records, p. 53, is not confirmed. In all instances, John was listed as John Y. Green or John Young Green to distinguish him from his father who was John P. Green or Greene. The John Green, listed in the HPs records was ordained an High Priest, 6 Apr 1852 by John Banks and Isaac Morley and enrolled in the quorum on the same day. John Young Green was in Salt Lake City from July 1847, and the HP Quorum was organized on 23 Apr 1848. Because of the difference in the name and the later date, this record may belong to someone else. All attempts to confirm this record have come to naught.
