Other facts


Married Mahalah CARTER


  • In 1850, Isaac and his wife Mahala Carter Green have been married less than one year, and are enumerated in a set of Greene households in Platte County, Missouri.  The head of the household listed after Isaac appears to be a brother, Elisha Green, about 6 years older.

    On the other side, the widow Ann Greene is head of the household and appears to be Isaac and Elisha's mother.  But from the marriage record, we see that Ann Liinebaugh married John Green in 1841, while the sons Elisha and Isaac Tipton Green (Greene) were born in 1822 and 1825 (or 1829, as Isaac's age in his Confederate military record would inidicate).  A sister Barsheba Carter is in the household of Ann Greene with three children. One is only 2 years old.  It may be that the two older Carter children are the children of Barsheba's late husband with his first wife.

    Annals of Platte County, Missouri by William McClung Paxton

    "On the night of that memorable 26th of September a company of cut-throats met at the house of Jacob Fulcher, and hung him until he was unconscious.  After robbing his house, they went to the house of John Rapp, robbed him and hung him on a leaning tree.  They then went to TIP GREEN's and after robbing his house, brought him to Rapp's and hung beside the dead body of Rapp.  Two days later I was ordered, as public administrator, to take charge of Rapp's estate.  The only valuable I found in his house was a twenty-dollar bill of Confederate money lying on the floor.  It was said that the possession of this money was the excuse of hanging him.  I did not inventory the $20."

    "TIP GREEN: He was hung as stated, September 26,1863
    "Children: 1 John; 2 William; 3 Mary m'd Jas Cannon; 4 Nicholas R; 5 Martin B (not right should have been D) 6 Stonewall T Green (not right should have been J).  Tip is the nephew of Elisha Green."
