My Genealogy Hound

Below is a family biography from the book, History of Kentucky, Edition 1 by J. H. Battle, W. H. Perrin and G. C. Kniffin and published by F. A. Battey Publishing Company in 1885.  These biographies are valuable for genealogy research in discovering missing ancestors or filling in the details of a family tree. Family biographies often include far more information than can be found in a census record or obituary.  Details will vary with each biography but will often include the date and place of birth, parent names including mothers' maiden name, name of wife including maiden name, her parents' names, name of children (including spouses if married), former places of residence, occupation details, military service, church and social organization affiliations, and more.  There are often ancestry details included that cannot be found in any other type of genealogical record.

C. A. GREEN was born in Graves County, Ky., January 1, 1840. He is a son of Meekley and Julia A. (Goad) Green. The father was born in Virginia, and reared in Tennessee, and later removed to Graves County, Ky.; he is now living in southwest Missouri. The mother was born in Tennessee, and came with her parents to Graves County, in about 1830; they were among the earlier settlers of the county. Her father assisted with a whip-saw in sawing the lumber for the first house ever erected in Columbus. Our subject, at about the age of thirteen, came to this county, where he has since lived; he owns a farm of about 175 acres which he cultivates, but for the past eight years has also been engaged in merchandising. About three years since, a post office was established at his store, at which time he was appointed postmaster — Cypress being the name of the office. Mr. Green was married, in 1859, to Luticia Hayden of Graves County. These parents have had eight children, six of whom are now living. Mr. and Mrs. Green are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
