Charles King Green, son of James and Pharba Green, was born near Centralia, Mo., Jan. 24, 1855.

Shortly after the Civil War his parents moved with their children to Schuyler county, Mo., where he married Amanda Piper, daughter of Lewis and Lucinda Piper, Nov, 21, 1875. To this union six children were born, three dying in infancy. Those surviving are E. I. Green of Kirksville, Mo., E. O. Green of Hueneme, Calif., and Mrs. Bessie Barb of Downing, Mo. This union was broken by the death of the wife on March 21, 1916.

He was united in marriage to Mrs. Cornie B. Harbidge of Arbela, Mo., on the 11th day of September 1919. For the last fifteen years they have resided in Memphis where on April 29, 1936, he died, aged 81 years, 3 months and 5 days.

Early in his married life he was converted and united with the Baptist Church in which he spent about 60 years of service. He was ordained to the ministry by the Walnut Grove Baptist Church, June 29, 1908. During his 28 years of ministerial work he served as pastor on many churches in North Missouri.

Much of his life was spent on the farm which he loved. He was active in all civic enterprises, being long a member and past master of the Masonic lodge at Downing. He was a member of the Eastern Star at Mamphis. Always active in public issues, he served Scotland county in the state legislature in 1901.

At the close of his active career he leaves besides the above mentioned children a loving wife, six grandchildren, one brother, William R. Green, of Ironton, Mo., and a host of relatives and friends.
