Married In Salt Lake
On November 25, 1886, she was married to Henry L. Green in Salt Lake City. Sixty years ago, the couple and their three children left Salt Lake in a covered wagon to seek a home in Ashley Valley. Traveling for twelve days on a road that was little more than a cow trail, and which made the fording of large streams necessary, the family arrived in the valley July 1, 1895. A few head of sheep which the couple brought with them, and their farm were their only sources of livelihood from then on.
The Greens settled in Davis Ward, and built a log cabin where the Davis Chapel now stands. Of all the hardships endured during early pioneer days Mrs. Green recalls most vividly the days and nights of caring for the sick, when no medical aid was available, and helping to cover and trim the homemade caskets to bury the dead. It was one of her desires to live to see beautiful caskets made by professional hands.
Move To Maeser
In the year 1909, the family moved to Maeser Ward where they lived for eighteen years, then moving to Vernal Ward in May of 1927, where Mr. Green died on February 9, 1935.
Always an active member of the Latter-Day Saint Church. Mrs. Green for many years acted as chairman of a committee apointed to aid and care for the older folk. She was also a Relief Society visiting teacher.
