Note: Buried in Lot 1st.068 with wife Estella May CLARK GREEN who died in 1933. Some confusion exists regarding his birth month. His obituary states he was born in July as does his Death Certificate, however his Death Certificate puts his age as 84 years, 3 months, 20 days, which would indicate he was born in June. Official county-level birth records were not required until July of 1880, so no Birth Certificate exists to confirm or deny. The 1900 Federal Census notes his birth month and year as July, 1858.
