Green farmed in Washington and Clark counties, and later worked as a blacksmith. He is listed in the 1850 Washington Co. Indiana census as being "deaf and dumb." Tackett Family oral tradition relates that, unable to hear the warning, Green was struck by a train and killed; no written verification of this story has been found.
