Cornelius D. Green,
Posey Township, was born in 1854. He was educated in the Patriot schools, and took one term in the Nelson Business College in Cincinnati. He grew up on the farm, and has always followed agricultural pursuits. He was married in 1876 to Rebecca Pate, daughter of W.T. Pate, and has one child, Polly, born in 1877. Mr. Green is a thorough farmer, and one of the most reliable citizens of his community. He owns one of the best farms along the river, has a good temper and a big heart, and perhaps makes less noise about what he does than any other man in the township.
