    Orange De Grass Greene, the oldest son of Thomas H. and Ann M. Greene, was born in the town of Adams, N. Y., June 29, 1831. He united with the Adams Center Seventh-day Baptist Church, February 21, 1852. When but eighteen years of age he was made chorister of the choir and held that position for about forty-three years and then relinquished it to his son Orrie. He remained a member of the choir and was to be seen in his place as long as he was able to get to the services.
    He was married August 18, 1855, to Melissa Greene, daughter of Paul Green Jr. Three children were born to this union, all of whom survive him. His wife preceded him to the silent land, June 3, 1900. He was married December 19, 1903 to Mrs. Mahala Cook, who survives him.
    He was elected deacon of the Adams Center Seventh-day Baptist Church and ordained the last Sabbath in May, 1870, and continued a faithful servant in that office till called above.
    Mr. Greene was a man generous toward the needy, strong in nature and in the expression of his likes and dislikes, but ready - often ready to make amends for wrong judgments rendered. In his death many have lost a sympathizing friend, the community has lost a true benefactor, the church a faithful member and a loyal supporter.
    All the children with their families were present at the funeral. Burial services, conducted by the pastor, were held from the late residence, and interment was made in the home cemetery. The large number present at the services bore testimony to the place he had in the esteem of his townspeople. A good citizen, a helpful man has gone. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth; Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them." E. A. Witter
