Y., July 4, 1829, and her father, William Martin, moved to Academy the same year. She was married to Kelly W. Green March 12th, 1850, by Rev. Eli Hackett. Mrs. Green was a devoted wife and mother and enjoyed the unbounded love and confidence of her husband and children. She was a kind and charitable neighbor, with a heart full of sympathy for the afflicted. Some twenty years ago she embraced religion, and her faith in God was never shaken. She was a lover of truth and justice, not deigning to gossip, and dealt exclusively in facts. During the war her heart and hands were engaged in ameliorating the sufferings of the Boys in Blue by preparing bandages, lint, mittens, stockings, canning and drying fruits with other ladies of our neighborhood, and the goods were sent in boxes to our soldiers. Finally, Mrs. Green has discharged the duties of life well and faithfully and has gone to her reward, loved and respected by all who knew her. Her funeral was held at the house of her son-in-law, Salem Haskell, where she was confined during her sickness, on the 7th instant, Rev. Langworthy officiating. Her body was tenderly borne to the grave by her four sons-in-law and two nephews, and laid to rest beside her son and daughter, who preceded her to the better land.

From Geneva Courier 10 December 1879

Mrs. Binnie Green, whose death was announced in the Courier, and whom a large circle of friends mourn, was born in 1851.  At the early age of four years she was left an orphan.  She was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Cobb, of Phelps, and in every way treated as if she were a daughter.  She won their affections and the affections of the friends to whom she became known.  She was always careful for the happiness of those who had adopted her.  She was like sunshine in the home.  Her presence was a delight.  She was a favorite with those of her own age -- full of playfulness in their mirth and of seriousness in their troubles.  She was, however, naturally serious, and never fond of the follies that are attractive to so many of the young.  It may be that early sorrow shadowed her mind.  She was married at the age of 23 years.  Her devotion as a wife and mother was ardent.  It lasted through her life.  Her greatest desire for life was that she might train the little one she has left.  It cannot be doubted that she left the impress of her mind and heart on the child.  The gentleness and blended firmness of her character qualified her to be useful at home and in society.

For more than twenty years a vigorous constitution resisted the attacks of a disease which at last terminated in death.  During repeated illnesses of great severity she was always patient and cheerful, never depressed on her own account.  Her last sickness was protracted and at times she suffered greatly.  Patient and self-possessed she made complete arrangements for her own burial. In these hours of increasing feebleness and of pain she was looking to her future home.  Her trust was in the .Savior She often said that no darkness obscured the view of Christ's love. At the very last she said to her physician who told her she would be in heaven before morning, "I am so glad."  Her end was peace.

Accidental Death - On Saturday morning last, Mr. Charles W. Green, aged 37 years, was accidentally killed at the depot here in a peculiar manner.  He left his home on Exchange street after breakfast to go to the Woodin farm east of Geneva to chop wood, and took the railroad track as that was his nearest course, and the one which promised the easiest walking.  Just east of the water tank he stepped from the track to avoid a passenger train towards the Fall Brook track.  At that moment a switch engine on the latter track came along and the heavy crossbeam struck Green on the head over the left eye inflicting a terrible wound.  He  was picked up in an unconscious condition, carried to his home and medical aid summoned, but he lived only a few hours.  A widowed mother and sister survive him.

From Canandaigua Chronicle 7 February 1906

Yesterday at his home in Bristol street in the same house where he had lived for nearly 52 years, the death occurred of Eli N. Green, one of the oldest inhabitants of the village, he being almost 90 years of age at the time of his death. Mr. Green was born in Wales, Mass., in 1816 and came to Canandaigua in 1843. He was a shoemaker by trade, and after coming to Canandaigua, was in the shoe business for a period of about ten years. Later he purchased a farm in the western part of the village and also owned a farm on the lake shore. He was a successful fruit grower and remained in the fruit business for some time.

Afterwards he purchased the house in Bristol street in which his death occurred and where as stated above, he has lived since the time of its purchase. In 1854 he was married to Miss Hannah Fields Childs and to them was born one son, Charles M. Green, who survives. His first wife died April 22, 1873.

In 1891 he was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Hewitt Brown, who survives him. In May, 1905, Mr. Green fell from a wagon and sustained a fracture of the collar bone and on account of his advanced age, the injury was a serious one from which he never fully recovered. A week ago last Monday he suffered a paralytic stroke which was at once recognized by the physicians as fatal, but his wonderful constitution kept him alive until yesterday, when his death occurred. He is survived by his wife and one son, Charles M. Green, of this village. Mr. Green was a man of excellent reputation and sterling character and has always commanded the respect of his fellow citizens. In his death the village loses one of its oldest citizens and it is in fact probable that Mr. Green was the oldest man living in the village since had he survived, he would have been 90 years of age on July 14th next. The funeral will be held from his late home Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m., Rev. J. Scott Ebersole officiating, and interment will be in Woodlawn cemetery.

Mrs. Irene Timmerman Green,
wife of Baldwin Green, died at the family home on Boughton Hill Sunday night, as the result of a stroke of paralysis which she suffered some five weeks ago, her death having been almost daily expected since that time. Mrs. Green was eighty-one years old. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Timmerman and was born in Manheim, Herkimer county, where she married Mr. Green sixty-one years ago. Their early married life was spent in the eastern part of the state, but they have been residents of Victor for fully forty years. Mrs. Green became a member of the Presbyterian church of this village in 1885, and for many years was a frequent attendant at its services. She was a quiet home-loving woman, content with the duties of wife and mother and never seeking prominence in the social life of the community, though during her long life in Victor many had come to know and love her. Beside the aged husband, five children survive: one daughter, Mrs. Charles Bowerman, who resides north of this village; William of Worcester, Mass., Herman, Clarence and Charles Green, all of this town. A son, Peter, of Buffalo, died about a year ago. One sister, Mrs. Carrie Dunkel of Binghamton, N. Y., and a brother, Benjamin F. Timmerman of this village, also survive.

Allen's Hill, N. Y. -
In the death of Isaac B. Green, who passed away at his home on March 10, the town loses one of its oldest, best known and most esteemed men. Mr. Green had been failing in health for some time past and the end was not unexpected. He was born in Rush, Monroe county, in 1837, and he had resided for nearly 60 years in the town of Richmond. On March 2, 1871, he married Miss Margery A. Reed, of this town, who with three sons, John R., Frank L. and Isaac M., survive. Mr. Green was a veteran of the Civil war, enlisting in 1862 in Company C, Fourth N. Y. heavy artillery. He served until 1865, when he was mustered out. At the close of the war, he re-engaged in farming and in this line he had been successful and accumulated a valuable property. He was a careful observer of the best ways and means of conducting a farm and studied the subject thoroughly. He was for many years an extensive hop grower. In politics Mr. Green was a staunch Republican. He and his family attended the Methodist church here and he was its generous supporter. He will be missed, as he was a kind and obliging neighbor, a loving husband and father, and his tender solicitude for his family, to whom his life had been devoted, makes the blow hard to bear. The funeral was held at his late home on Friday, Rev. J. G. Hann officiating. The interment was in Lake View Cemetery at Honeoye. D. O. Pierpont, R. B. Simmons, B. F. Phillips and H. G. Ogden acted as bearers.

Sudden Death of James Green - Mr. James Green, an old and respected resident of Geneva, died on Monday morning.  He had but a few moments before come into the house, and appeared in his usual health. He laid down upon a lounge and complained of feeling great pain.  Before any help could be summoned he was dead. He had been a sufferer several years from rheumatism, and death probably resulted from rheumatism of the heart. Mr. Green was a man of a quiet and pleasant disposition, and had many friends and no enemies.  He leaves a wife and five children, the youngest about twelve years old. He was about 67 years of age. He was possessed of considerable property, owning houses on Exchange, Castle and Geneva streets, and residences in other parts of the village. Some years ago he followed the occupation of a butcher, and did a large business, but of late years he has not engaged in any vocation. Mr. Green was born in County Clare, Ireland, and came to this country in 1836, and settled in Brooklyn. Tiring of the city in 1840, he removed to this village and has lived here continuously up to the time of his death. The funeral will take place from the church of St. Francis DeSales on Thursday morning at 10 o'clock.

Mrs. John R. Green, wife of a former well known merchant of Phelps, died on Monday afternoon last.  She had been in feeble health for a long time, so that her death was not unexpected.

From Geneva Gazette 6 April 1894

Died All Alone !  - Mrs. John Green
, an aged widow, lived all alone in her little home, corner of Colt and North Main streets.  She was daily about her premises up to and including Monday last.  Tuesday passed as also the forenoon of Wednesday, when neighbors suddenly became conscious of the fact that 48 hours had elapsed since she had been seen.  This led to an investigation.  Every door was found securely closed.  A window of her bedroom facing Colt street was eventually raised a trifle, the curtains pushed aside, and the venerable woman discovered in calm and unconscious repose upon her bed. Entrance by a doorway was speedily effected, and the startling fact revealed that Death had been a visitor there long before, from twenty-four to thirty-six hours.

The husband of the deceased was Mr. John Green, the oldest of five brothers, all active and well known citizens of our village, the others being James, Daniel, Thos. and Patrick, all long since passed away.  She had three children, two sons and one daughter, all of whom fell victims of consumption soon after reaching adult age.  Altho' bereaved of all of her family, yet the lonely widow never abandoned her home, not took others to share its humble but comfortable shelter.  She exchanged frequent visits with her many neighbors, by all of whom as well as by all acquaintances she was held in high esteem.  She lived and died a faithful, devout Catholic.  The last sad offices of her church in a requiem mass will be said over her inanimate remains today. How we will miss her cheery salutation as from day to day for over forty years our pathway has led us by her humble dwelling.

Honeoye, N. Y. -  Dr. Lewis E. Green
died at Brigham Hall, Canandaigua, on Saturday, May 1, at 5:30 p.m., aged nearly 46 years. Two years ago this present month, it was considered necessary to place him under restraint. Since then his health has been gradually failing until the end came. Dr. Green was born in South Dansville, Livingston county, on June 12, 1851. Of a family of 10 children, five brothers and the only sister survive. In the spring of '75, he located in Honeoye, and on February 9, '87, was married to Miss Carrie E. Pierpont of this town. The funeral services were held from the Congregational church on Tuesday, May 4, at 1:30 p.m., Rev. L. H. Squires of Rochester officiating, assisted by Rev. Mr. Day, with interment in Lake View cemetery. His widow and little son, five years of age, are all that are left of his immediate family. Dr. Green, when in health, had a large and extended practice. He was a Democrat in politics, had served one term as postmaster, and was one of the most independent of men. It was a cause of universal regret when, two or three years ago, friends and acquaintances were forced to acknowledge that Dr. Green could no longer be considered accountable. The kindest and most attentive care had been given him until the summons came to "banquet with the King."

Rushville, N. Y. -
This place was shocked Thursday to learn that Lyman Green, a well-known farmer, had killed himself at his home west of here. His wife was working about the kitchen when she was attracted by the report of a gun, which came from another part of the house. She had left her husband at the breakfast table and when she went to that room and found it empty, she searched further and discovered his dead body in a closet that opened off the room. His head was almost severed from his body by an ugly gunshot wound in the neck, the still smoking gun lying nearby. Coroner Wilkans, who was called, concluded that Green had entered the closet, rested the gun on the floor, placed the right side of his neck over the muzzle and pulled the trigger. His neck had been broken and almost shot away. Green had been very despondent of late. He was about 50 years of age. Besides his widow, he leaves a 7-year-old daughter.

As a solider he was always prompt and faithful in the performance of his duties and he won the respect and esteem of his officers and comrades in arms. He bravely faced the swift messengers of death on the battlefield, unhurt, but at last fell a victim to a more insidious foe; and he now rests by the side of others of his fellow soldiers, whom no martial notes can awake to action again.

She is survived by one child, a daughter, her husband having been dead some little time. Thus it is with one of our most prosperous and highly respected farmers. Mr. Gregory owned a large farm about 2 miles from here. He began farming about civil war times with a piece of swamp land and by hard labor and good management succeeded in getting his farm to a high state of fertility. He first thoroughly and scientifically underdrained the farm, going heavily in debt to do so. He later put up large buildings according to his own ideas of architecture and stocked his farm with modern machinery, including dairy implements. The products of his cheese factory were of first-class. At time of his death, he had saved a considerable fortune. Had some property, besides his 300 acre farm. This the end of a brilliant example of energy, good judgment and thorough attention to business with results as above mentioned.

In our obituary department this week will be found an announcement of the death of E. S. Gregory, Esq., whose injury by the cars was mentioned two or three weeks since in this paper. His foot proved to be so much damaged as to necessitate amputation and the operation was performed about a week ago. But the patient's system, enfeebled by age and disease, did no possess sufficient vitality to recover from the shock. He continued conscious until Monday afternoon, when he commenced sinking rapidly, and before morning expired.

From Geneva Advertiser 13 August 1901

Mrs. Samaria Nellis Gregory,
widow of the late Charles P. Gregory, died at her home on High St., Sunday morning, Aug. 4 of Bright's disease, aged 65 years.  She was the daughter of the late John D. and Samantha Stanton Nellis of Naples, N. Y. Her aged mother survives her, and also a brother, J. Warren Nellis, a well-known resident of Naples.  It was a source of much gratification to that mother to be able, at the age of nearly 92 years, to spend a little time with this only daughter and to soothe her last hours.  Mrs. Gregory had not been in good health for several years, but it was hoped that she might be spared to the only daughter for at least a few happy years together in their new home in this city, they having left the farm in April last.  This second bereavement -- but a little more than a year since the death of her father, comes with all the more force to the daughter, Miss Frances, thus left entirely alone.  For Mrs. Gregory was as faithful, loving and sympathizing a mother as she was a wife.  Her whole life was given up to the welfare of those she loved, and much of her husband's success in life was due to her wise and helpful and hearty cooperation in his plans.

Early in life she joined the Methodist Church in Naples and was an active worker in the society until her marriage and removal to Seneca.  There she became a member of the Presb. Church at No. 9.  She quietly and faithfully tried to do her duty in God's sight, and at the last expressed herself as ready to go up higher.  The funeral was held at 60 High St. on Tuesday afternoon, Reverend Mr. Weller and Rev. Mr. Temple, her old pastor officiating.  The beautiful floral tributes and the presence of many old and new friends testified to the respect in which she was held.  She was laid to rest in Glenwood as was her request, and the remains of Mr. Gregory will be brought back here from Naples, and laid beside her.  They lived and worked together, and in their death were not long separated.

In so short a time has one of the old homes of Seneca changed, and the farm known for a century as the Gregory farm, and so greatly improved and cared for by their hands must pass into the possession of strangers.  Fortunate those who obtain it, and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Mrs. John Greig

From Ontario County Journal 16 March 1888

Naples, N. Y. - Paul Greiner, a young German, 18 years old, was instantly killed on Wednesday, March 7, while felling trees in the woods. A large sapling bent down by a falling tree, flew back with such force as to break a limb from the falling tree and hurl it with tremendous force through the air. It struck the young man on the head crushing the skull. He lived but a few moments. His uncle, Charles Greiner, who stood near him was uninjured. This young man left his parents in the old country last fall, intending to make a home for them here. He was remarkably fine looking and intelligent. It is a most lamentable affair.
