Oswego County's: Guide To Government

Thomas W. Green

The Hon. T.W. Green died here yesterday afternoon of paralysis. He was about the last Friday in his usual health and while engaged in a business transaction was suddenly stricken from the effects of which he became unconscious and remained so up to the hour of his death. Thomas W. Green was born in the town of New Haven, this county, May 15th, 1830, and had therefore but a few days ago passed his sixtieth year. His parents were Henry and Clarissa Green, who were among the pioneers of Oswego county. In 1868 he was married to Miss Kate Warner of Hastings, and since that time has been a resident of Caughdenoy, where he carried on a large general store successfully. Mr. Green was a Republican in politics and stood high in his party. In 1872 and again in 1876 he represented his district in the Legislature,and for five or six terms he represented hid town in the Board of Supervisor. He was also, we believe at one time Chairman of the Republican County Committee. Possessing a cheerful, sunny disposition he was very popular among his neighbors and friends and was a man of wide influence in this town. Besides a wife he leaves a sister and brother, Mrs. C.C. Wells, a popular and well known teacher for many years in our public schools and the Hon. A.L. Green of Spartansburg, Pa. The funeral services will be held at the M.E. church in Caughdenoy tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
