Many places in the United States are named for him. Greene suffered financial difficulties in the post-war years and died suddenly of sunstroke in 1786.

(1814–1886) and his nephew Henry Kirke Bush-Brown (1857–1935), were the sculptors of seven equestrian statues in the US. Brown was one of the first in America to cast his own bronzes.
