page 679


George Green, one of the pioneers of Steuben County, was born in Monroe County, N. Y., April 2, 1832, a son of John and Louisa (Culver) Green.  His mother died June 27, 1835, leaving two children -- George and Marvin, and his father afterwards married Diantha Olin.  To them were born seven children -- Francis was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion and died at Murfreesboro; Henry, Amos, Martha, Eliza, Emery and Allen.  In 1836 the father came to Steuben County, Ind., and entered land in Jamestown Township, on section 36, and in September, 1837, moved his family to the county.  He died on the old homestead Feb. 7, 1865.  He was a member of the Baptist church many years.  In early life he was a Whig, but later affiliated with the Republican party.  George Green came with his father to Steuben County when but five years of age, and has been identified with her interests since his earliest recollections.  He was reared on a pioneer farm, receiving only such advantages for an education as were afforded by the subscription schools.  He has lived to see the county change from a wilderness to an advanced state of civilization.  He is an energetic farmer and owns fifty acres of valuable land, on which is a pleasant residence and good farm buildings.
