Orvis W. Green Came West When a Youth Locating in Taylor County

Orvis W. Green, aged 77, a resident of Westfield for the past eleven years,
and prior to that a tiller of the soil in the west part of the county since
1909, died Friday morning at the Sacred Heart hospital in this city where he
was brought for treatment some weeks ago. His death was due to an internal
malady and complications brought on by weight of years.

Orvis W. Green was born at Bradford, Pennsylvania, February 14, 1851, where
he received his early education and bringing up. When a youth he came west
and settled in Taylor county near Villisca in 1874 and was married there in
1874 to Mary Dell Huntley. Following their marriage they engaged in farming
in which occupation their lives were passed. Mr. and Mrs. Green came to
Plymouth county in 1909, and engaged in farming in the west part of the
county and in 1916 retired from farm life and took up their residence in the
town of Westfield.

Mr. Green is survived by his wife, and five children, who are: Mrs. Belle
Allison, of Westfield; O.H. Green, of LeMars; Charles E. Green, of Quinn,
S.D.; Mrs. Lizzie Burns, of Hepburn, Iowa, and Mrs. Clara Whitead, of
Liberty township, Plymouth county. Two boys died in infancy. There are
seven grandchildren and one great grandchild. Mr. Green also leaves a
brother, Emmett Green, living at Overton, Pa.

Mr. Green was for many years a member of the Christian church. He was a
good husband and father and held in high esteem by all who knew him, as a
fine citizen and neighbor.

The funeral was held Saturday at the Congregational church in Westfield,
Rev. C. E. Tower officiating and interment made in the Westfield cemetery.
