Mr. Green bought the Indian village called Raccoontown, situated above Johnstown, and its site became part of his farm. George Washington Evans, (who settled there early in 1806) was the only white man living in what is now Monroe township when Mr. and Mrs. Green settled there. Their oldest daughter, (Mrs. Mahala Butt) was the first white child born there; and is still living in Monroe township, at the ate of 74 years having been born in 1807. Mr. George Green died in 1863.

She has been in communion with the Methodist Episcopal Church for more than sixty years, and was held in high esteem for the many virtues and christian graces that adorned her character--The funeral services were conducted by Rev. R. Watson.
