    Green appears in censuses with different middle initials, Green S,Green N and no initial.

    In the 1900 census no children are in their household but they havebeen married 12 years.  This census reports Callie's birthday as May1872, but the year  of death on her grave is 1871.  This is a commonconflict in the 1900 census birth dates.  The grave has only the yearof death.  Lacking no other sources, I usually favor the grave inthese cases.

    This census reports Green's birthday as Jan 1850, but he is not in the1850 census.  Further, the last child is his sister Nancy, who isreported as only 11 months old,  So the later birthday of about 1854makes sense.
