OBITUARY OF A. W. GREEN
A. W. Green was born near Zaleski, Vinton county Ohio, December 17, 1848. His mother dying during his infancy, he was left to the care of his grandmother until he was nine years old and then went to Ross county to live with his father.

It was during the Civil War in 1864 that he received his “spiritual birth,” and he never doubted it. In March of 1864 he came to Dwight [DeWitt] county, Illinois, then to VanBuren county, Iowa, in October, 1870. In December, 1873, he came to Marengo, Iowa, where he started the practice of dentistry with his brother, E. B.

He was married in March, 1882, to Anna L. Stover. To this union ten children were born, three preceding him in death. They lived in North English until November 9, 1891, when they moved to West Bend, Iowa where they lived so many years practicing dentistry. While here he united with the Presbyterian church. They moved to Rockford, Floyd county, Iowa, May 1, 1920. It was at this place that Mr. Green died on October 30, 1922 being 73 years, 10 months and 13 days old.

The remains were taken to West Bend for interment in the family lot. The funeral services were conducted last Thursday afternoon at the Presbyterian Church by Rev. deBest of Rodman.

The wife and seven children survive him. The children are: J. A. of Rockford; Mrs. O. A. Campbell of Rodman; Mrs. R. S. Barton of Algona; L. N. of Newell; Mrs. C. F. Mudge of Estherville; Mrs. A. T. Heiter of Laurens; and D. C. of Ames – all of whom were with him during his last illness. He is also survived by thirteen grand-children. Mrs. Green and the children have the sympathy of their many West Bend friends.
