Obituary

Oliver Green of Shaftsbury, an old veteran of the Vermont cavalry, is sick with typhoid fever. He was for a long time confined in Libby and Andersonville prisons.

Source: Burlington Free Press March 7, 1891.

Oliver Green, who has been for a long time out of health from disease, the result of exposure in army life, died Monday morning. He retained his faculties to the end, having told his wife, who had been waiting upon him during one of his distressed spells, to go about her home duties as he was feeling better, and that he would call if it was necessary. Soon the recurrence of a heart difficulty was manifested, and he passed away having made a persistent struggle for life. For months he had been seriously thinking of a change of worlds, and had made up his mind that only "to be a soldier of the cross of Christ in this world," could give him "a hope to enter into the joy of his Lord." The funeral was attended from his late home on Wednesday, by Rev. A. S. Gilbert, assisted by Rev. C. H. Peck, a large number being present at the services.
