Biography

John S. GREEN was born in Williamstown, Vt., in May, 1841. His father died just before he was born, and left a wife and five other children. Mr. GREEN's mother died when he was but six years old, and from that time until he was fourteen this orphan boy had a home with Dr. WALDO, of Williamstown. He then went to Chicago and engaged in canvassing. When but sixteen years old he was employed by a wholesale firm of St. Louis as a collector and buyer, and filled the position about three and a half years, and until about the time of the late war between the North and South. Mr. GREEN then enlisted in the 4th Vt. Regt., and served three years and received three wounds. Most of the time of his service he was the head clerk of the provost-marshal's office. After the war he was a book-keeper, in the employ of the Miles Manufacturing Co., of New York. Since 1880 he has made a home in Northfield. Mr. GREEN married Annie P., daughter of Richard L. MARTIN, of Williamstown. They are parents of a daughter and two sons.
