When Green McCafferty was a young lad he joined the regular army during the Mexican war, serving as a teamster. A few years after his service he headed west, arriving in Olympia in 1852. He mastered the intricacies of the Indian language of the tribes in the area and served as Indian interpreter under Isaac I. Stevens, the first governor of the territory of Washington.

Green passed away on Sunday (March 8th) at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lou E. (Lou Ann) Duval. His other surviving children were Mrs. Arthur (Lucy) Austin, Mrs. Katie Hughes, Mrs. Alice Byers, and Charles McCafferty. His wife, Henrietta Taylor, died several years ago.

The funeral was held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Duval, at Mud Bay and the interment made in the McLane cemetery. Rev. C. E. Philbrook conducted the services.

His obituary was published in the Olympia Record, March 10, 1908.
