Mandeville was the oldest son of Eli Green (1839-1906) and Mary T. Peters (1851-Unk)**. He was a coal loader by trade but had not worked for the 12 years prior to his death. According to his death certificate, he refused to eat due to insanity. His date of birth is a contested number as his death certificate indicates he was born in 1869. However, he was not enumerated in the 1870 census with his parents and in the 1880 census he is only shown as 9 years old. I have used the 1871 date as I believe it is correct.

Mandeville was married twice. First to Sarah "Sally" H. Settle (1867-1945) in about 1892. They had two children Virgie Lee Green Lang (1894-1956) and William Tell Green (1896-1959). Census information from 1910, shows Sally as a "widow"; however, this is not true. Sometime right before 1900, Mandeville married(?) Maude Kessinger(1871-1951) and they had 3 children: Mary Green Shifflett (1900-1981), James Walker Green (1905-1954), and Clara Marie Green Jarvis (1908-1968). This was also Maude's second marriage. She had two children Ina F. Clark Young (1891-1964) and Charles Erastus "Rassie" Clark (1894-1938). Both of these children were living with Mandeville and Maude in 1900 and they must have been close with the family. When James passed away, Ina is listed as his "sister".

**There is some discrepancy about the date of Mary's death. According to Eli's death information he was a widower when he passed away in 1906. Other researchers have a date of death as 25 Dec 1962 in Franklin, Virginia. However, there are no death records in either West Virginia or Virginia before 1906 or in Virginia around the 1962 date.
