Obituary

Col. Jno. A. Green was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, April 23rd, 1841, and departed this life at Fort Worth, Texas, December 24th, 1908. He was therefore 67 years, 8 months and 5 days old at the time of his death.

Col. Green´s grandfather was Gen. Moses Green, a valiant soldier of the War of 1812. His father Archibal Magl Green, who was Consul from the United to Texas, when Texas was a Republic, died of yellow fever at Galveston while in office when Col. Green was but two years old.

Col. Green was married to Miss Sue V. Lewis at the old homestead of the bride´s parents in Culpepper County, VA. on Nov. 14th, 1866. He and his wife had therefore spent a happy married life of a little more than 42 years.

Mrs. Green was the daughter of James B. Lewis and Elizabeth M. Lewis (nee Yancy) who were also married in Culpepper Co., VA. James B. Lewis was also a soldier of the War of 1812.

Mrs. Green had three brothers in the Confederate Army of North Virginia and left behind them a worthy military record to record.

One M.H. Lewis died in the service of his country on the battlefield. Thomas Lewis, another was taken prisoner and placed under guard and close confinement in the old Capital building at Washington. He was finally released after the war only to go home to die shortly after from the effects of the exposure and confinement of prison life. Harrison Lewis, the third, survived the close of the war but a short while when he too passed to his reward.

As the fruits of the union between Col. Jno. A. Green and Sue V. Green (nee Lewis) there were born to them several children, to wit: T.M. Green, Mrs. Mary L. Johnson, wife of T.B. Johnson, J.D. Green, James William Green, Mrs. Fannie Forbis, wife of R.C. Forbis, Mrs. Nellie Davis, wife of S.R. Davis and Mrs. Virgie L. Davis, wife of L.W. Davis, all of whom are living except James William Green, who died in infancy. Mrs. Mary L. Johnson and her husband, T.B. Johnson, reside in Ft. Worth, Texas, and the others of said children living reside in Dickens County.

At the time of his death Col. Green left surviving him his wife, Sue V. Green who also resides in Dickens, his said children and his brothers and sisters. his brother, Moses Green resides in Warrenton, VA; his half brothers, Thomas Tate, and his sisters, Mrs. Gilkerson and Mrs. Parr, reside in Culpepper County, VA, and his sister Mrs. Theodore Kyle, resides at Brandy Station, VA. His is the first death among his father´s and mother´s children and save his infant son, he is the first member of his immediate family to pass over to the other side.
