Charles "Charlie" Wheeler Green last child born to Elizabeth "Eliza" Ann Farmer with Jonathan Andrew

Charles as family called him Pappy was an endearing man. He was tall, and had a love for Jesus, his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, family.

Pappy had an excellent Alto singing voice like his father Jack. He used it well with this Ministry and he had a Radio Talk Show aired with Rev. J.W Shoulders in Bordeaux to which they would read Scripture from the Bible and had a special surmon to attach with the Scripture. Then at the close of the radio show, my Pappy would 'Sing' to his Gospel Music. He was well known for this and people not only living in Cheatham County loved him but in Nashville Davidson County TN.
Pappy was elated when getting a phone call from Rev., J W Shoulders with news saying to me, " People of the community are enjoying our Sermon as we have been expanded in our time. We are blessed that our neighbor's and community are requesting Scripture dedication's and song dedication's. ." He was a fine Christian man beyond words.

His wife Willie Ann Burgess and he married in 1909 in
Cheatham County Tennessee.

His occupations included Farming on Uncle Henry Newman's farm on Old Clarksville Pike raising tobacco. He was well known being called Strawboss as his workers would call him as Charles (Pappy) would have a piece of straw in his mouth while working to roll tobacco. Later, he left the farm to work for American Snuff( Conway), Bush Building Company, Werthan Bag Ind., in Nashville.
