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.

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.
