George Green

St. Johnsbury Caledonian-Record

December 27, 1916

AGED RESIDENT DIES

Death of George Green, 81 Years, Was Result of Broken Hip

George Green, 81, years of age, for the greater part of his life a resident of this place, passed away at the home of his son, G. I. Green on Webster street, Tuesday morning. His death was due to a fractured hip sustained by a fall received in his room about ten days ago, and which because of his advanced age did not heal. He was a former railroad man and fired the first train that ran between Wells River and Barton. He also for many years was a farmer in Waterford and St. Johnsbury Center. He was a veteran of the Civil War.

George Green was born in Waterford, July 19, 1835, the son of Luther and Martha Green. He lived during his young life on the old Green homestead in Waterford, but later came to St. Johnsbury, where he began work on the Boston & Maine railroad, being at different times fireman, yardman, brakeman and conductor.

At the opening of the Civil War he enlisted from this place, in Company I, of the third Vermont regiment. While at the front, his wife, who was before her marriage, Madonna Bennett of Waterford, died, and within a short time his young son also passed away. He later married Mary Jane Young of Waterford, who survives.

Besides his widow he leaves three daughters and a son; Mrs. Cora Bailey, Concord; Mrs. P.J. Cormier, Mrs. Arthur Whitley, and G. I. Green, all of St. Johnsbury. He also leaves a brother, Luther Green of St. Johnsbury and a sister, Mrs. Sarah Hovey of Concord.

The funeral will be held from the late home on Webster street, Thursday at 2 o'clock and the interment will be in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. Rev. Paul Dwight Moody will officiate at the services.
