    At Adams Centre, N. Y., May 9th, 1878, Charles Green, in the 100th year of his age. He was born in Berlin, N. Y., Oct. 10th, 1778. His father's name was Charles. His mother was a sister of Eld. Eli S. Bailey's father. He married for his first wife Ann Crandall, who died six years after. In the meantime, he moved to Unadilla, where he lived five years, and then returned to Berlin. He cleared the timber from five acres of land, where now is the heart of the city of Utica. He assisted in raising the second frame building erected there.
    His second wife was Amy Sheldon. With her he lived sixty nine years, and by her had thirteen children, all of whom lived to have families of their own. In 1805 he moved into Northern New York. In 1822, when the Adams Seventh Day Baptist Church was organized he was one of the thirteen who constituted that organization. From that time till his death he remained a worthy member of that church. He was also a member of the first Board of Trustees of that society.
    He was a man of a most kindly, generous spirit. His home was always open to the homeless. At different times he gave homes for several years to twenty-two children besides his own. He loved his Bible and the devotional meetings of the church. He retained his faculties in a remarkable degree till the last. But a few hours before his death he recognized the writer, and responded intelligibly in the affirmative to the remark that "the Lord is good to you." Among the large circle of mourners there were his descendants to the fourth generation. He died from cancer. A. B. P.
