Willis Scoggin Green was my maternal great-grandfather. He was the 3rd son and the 4th child of George Hosea Green and Rowena Holt Green. He married Mary Elizabeth "Mollie" Hastings Green on Nov 26, 1876 in Bedford, TX, Tarrant Co.
They had 4 sons and 8 daughters, 2 daughters died with in a day or two of being born and the rest lived to be adults and raise families. Will and Mollie were among the first pioneers of Coleman Co. TX. They came to the county late in 1876, spending their first winter in a log cabln. The following spring Will hauled lumber by wagon and team from Ft. Worth to build their first house. When they first came to the eastern part of the county Indians were still plentiful in and around the mountains and hill districts. Travel after dark was dangerous, Mollie recalled. Will was nearly 55 years old at his passing and there were still young children at home for Mollie to continue to raise and still run the farm.
