OBITUARY

(Harrison County Tribune, Bethany, Missouri)
          Joseph Green  was born at Aurora, Indiana, November 7, 1826, and died at Bethany, Missouri, March 24, 1898, aged 71 years, 4 months and 17 days.
          When he was three years of age his parents removed to Shelby County, Indiana, where he grew to manhood, receiving a common education.
          In 1847 he volunteered in Co. E. 5th Indiana for the Mexican war and served until the regiment was mustered out. The colonel of the regiment was the famous  Jim Lane, afterwards a general in the Union Army and U.S. Senator from Kansas.
          April 26, 1849 he was married to  Miss Eliza J. Jackson  of Brookville, Indiana.  They had seven children as follows:  Mary, wife of  H.C. Wymore, who died in Nebraska in 1890;  Wm. C. of Butler township, this county, Zarada, wife of  Wm. Staggs, of Nebraska;  Nancy J.,  wife of  J. W. McKern  of Ridgeway, Missouri;  Willard C. of Tarkio, Missouri;  Sarah A. wife of  George Smith  of Nebraska, and  Eli, of this city.
          He became a member of Mt. Moriah Lodge, I.O.O.F. about twenty years ago and on coming to Bethany, transferred his membership to Miriam Lodge.  Odd Fellowship was his religion and he lived it in all his intercourse with his fellows.  He belonged to no church, but believed in the golden rule.  Until his recent illness he seldom missed a meeting of his Lodge.  Death came as a welcome relief after months of intense suffering from a cancerous affliction of the head.
          The funeral was held at the residence March 25, 1898 and at his request the services at the house and at the grave in Miriam Cemetery, were conducted in accordance with the beautiful ritual of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
          Joseph Green  was a brother of  James Green,  Elston  and  Stephen  of Shelby township [Shelby County, Indiana].
