James Alonzo Green married Minta Etta Ann Frances Rose in Cheatham County Tennessee on 17 Feb 1901.
Her nickname used Mintie.

James and Mintie had SEVEN children; FOUR of those children were born ' Deaf '. Three Daughter's and One Son.
However, they attended Knoxville School for the Deaf to learn and lead lives while in a silent world. They married and had children.
Son Robert Bob Green gained employment and married twice.

When I visited Oakwood as a child with my Grandparents they told me the story of our unique relatives that were loving and did not let this be a setback in their lives.

When we visited they had headstone's that was, at that time to me, in degrading condition. Later, I visited and the headstones with their names on it was fallen apart and broken into pieces. I do not know if time and weather took a toll on their headstone. I recall thinking of the name Minta Mintie Rose Green being a name not to forget. I did not forget.

James Alonzo Green is the son of Andrew Jonathan Jack Green and Eliza Ann Farmer.

His Occupation was a Farmer in the Joelton area then Cheatham County TN.

My Grandparents would bring me to many Cemeteries in Cheatham County TN. Especially to Oakwood and Mt Zion.
