************

GREEN LILLY was born in West Virginia April 11, 1814, and is a son of David and Sarah (Wilson) Lilly, both natives of Virginia. Green spent his boyhood with his parents, in Henry County, Ind., where his father won from the forest a home, and where Green obtained his education, and taught one term of school before his majority, in the most primitive of cabins. Afterward he worked at farming and purchased an interest in a saw mill. In 1844, having purchased three forty-acre lots, and afterward obtained forty acres more, he sold the same and purchased 120 in Cicero Township. On December 14, 1848, he was married to Miss Sarah E. Wright, of this township, born March 4, 1825, daughter of Joseph and Sarah J. (Salter) Wright. Eight children blessed this union - Joseph A,, David, Sylvan E.. Sarah J., Mary H., James G. (deceased), Edwin W. and Oliver G. Mr. Lilly sold his land in 1849, and in April, 1850, purchased eighty acres of his present home, to which he added eighty more and greatly improved, 120 of which are under cultivation. He is a large stock-raiser, and devotes the greater part of his land to pasture. Although not a politician, he has been Justice of the Peace and Township Trustee, as well as County Commissioner one term. He prepared some of the first square timber and built some of the first cabins erected in Tipton. Mr. Lilly is a progressive and valued citizen, and Mrs. Lilly is a useful member of the M. E. Church.
