Robert B. Green, State senator, former district judge and for three terms county judge of Bexar county, who died suddenly of rheumatism of the heart while in camp 25 miles from San Antonio, was laid at rest this morning in the Confederate cemetery, where rest the bodies of his father and other distinguished relatives, who have aided in the upbuilding and the progress of San Antonio and southwest Texas.
Robert B. Green was born in San Antonio in May, 1866. He was the son of N. O. Green, one of the most distinuished members of the bar of Texas, and Mary Fulton Green. His early education was acquired in the German-English school of this city and then he entered the A. & M. college at College Station, from which he was graduated in 1884. Returning to San Antonio in June, 1884, he became at once captain of the Belknap Rifles which he commanded on many fields of brilliant victory in competitive drills and exhibitions. In 1886 he was appointed private secretary to Senator Richard Coke and remained some time in Washington in that capacity. Afterward he entered Lebanon Law university in Lebanon, Tenn., from which he was graduated in 1899, when he returned to San Antonio, entering upon the practice of law, first in association with Duval West, and later with his father, N. O. Green, and cousin, John A. Green.
Senator Green was married nine years ago to Miss Rena Maverick, daughter of George Maverick of this city, and four children, two boys and girls are the issue of this union.
In November, 1900, he was elected county judge of Bexar county, and was twice re-elected, serving in the office six years. He was elected a member of the senate of the state of Texas in November, 1906, and drew a four year term, so that his term would not have expired until early in 1911.
Since the death of his father and cousin, he has been associated with N. O. Green, his brother. The firm had law offices in the Moore building.
Besides his wife and children, he is survived by two brothers, N. O. Green, his law partner and Captain John F. Green, now in the Philippines, as commandor of the Philippine constabulary, with headquarters at Manila, and one sister, Mrs. Sallie Bartlett of this city.
