BIOGRAPHICAL & HISTORICAL MEMOIRS, NORTHWEST LOUISIANA, DESOTO PARISH, Pub. 1890 by The Southern Publishing Company (A Large Fund of Biography of Actual Residents, and an Interesting Historical Sketch of Thirteen Counties).

S. W. GREENING: The following is a brief sketch of the career of Mr. Greening,-a-man whose present substantial position in life has been reached entirely through his own perseverance, and the facts connected with his agricultural operations and their results show what a person with courage and enlightened views can surely accomplish.

He first saw the light of day in Dallas County, Alabama, on July 26, 1839, and his early schooling was obtained in that State and in Louisiana; his parents, J. J. and Sarah (Warren) Greening, having removed thither in 1847. The former was born in South Carolina and the latter in Georgia, and after coming here they settled near Pleasant Hill in DeSoto Parish, where the father was a member of the Police Jury for a number of years. He made a purchase of two or three small claims, but entered most of his land, and became the owner of 1,000 acres.
He afterward made a purchase on Red River, in DeSoto Parish, which was about the year 1853, and on this farm he died in 1873, having in early life been a student at West Point and a member of the Alabama Legislature for several terms. He was quite prominent, both as a politician and agriculturist, and although he raised a company for the Mexican War,  he did not enter the service. His wife is still living, being in her seventy-second year. She bore him fourteen children, two sons and four daughters now living (1890) and of this family the subject of this sketch is the oldest

He has been a resident of Louisiana since he was eight years of age, and has witnessed the growth and development of this country from a wilderness of cane brake and woods to finely cultivated fields of cotton and waving grain. He obtained a good education in Centenary College of Jackson, La., and the most of his early youth was spent on the father's plantation. In 1861 he left home and enlisted in the Pelican Rifles of DeSoto Parish, first company of his parish, but after serving a little over two years with the Second Louisiana Regiment in Virginia he was captured at the battle of Antietam, but was soon after paroled. He took part in many of the engagements in Virginia and after the close of the war he returned home and embarked in merchandising in Mansfield, a calling he continued to follow for about eighteen months. He then went to Red River and farmed for two years but the successive overflows of 1867 and 1868 completely ruined him financially. In 1869 he moved to where he now resides, and by the exercise of good judgment and by hard and persistent toil he has became the owner of 525 acres of land, a considerable portion of which is under the plow. His marriage, which occurred in 1866, was to Miss R. D. Bullock, a native of Alabama, by whom he has had ten children:  R. D. ( a Physician), Julia, J. M., Reba, S. W., Jr. , C. D., Rufus, Virginia, Adolphus, and Vivian
