Oct. 15, 1872 - Dec. 5, 1905
|A modest Christian gentleman, who loved his Master and went diligently about His business with but one controlling thought, how best he could serve Him, passed to his eternal reward from his post of duty at Bunkie, La., on December 5th, after an illness of nine days with yellow fever.
He was born October 15, 1872, and joined the church under the ministry of Reverend J. M. Johnston at Sicily Island in 1893; was licensed to preach in 1902, at Collinston, Louisiana. at the District Conference presided over by Reverend J. M. Henry.
At the time of his death he had been three years in the ministry, and was 33 years of age. Two years of his ministerial life were faithfully given at Slidell, Louisiana. The last years were spent in faithful service at Bunkie.
During his last sickness, in conversation with Brother Jno. G. Snellings, who prayed with him, he expressed himself as “perfectly resigned to the will of God.” In Brother Green’s death the church has lost an able and growing preacher, his wife a loving husband, his two children a tender father and his parents a dutiful son.
Resolved, that we express our sympathy to his bereaved loved ones and that a copy of this memoir be spread upon our minutes.
