HENRY J. & SARAH T. GREEN

SARAH TOLBERT GREEN
June 7, 1876
June 2, 1947
HENRY J. GREEN
May 6, 1874
Sept. 18, 1945
Married Apr. 14, 1892
Henry Jasper Green and Sarah (Salley) Tolbert were the parents of William C., Adaline "Addie",
Essie Virginia, Eula, Susie, Bertha Alma, Eva Lee Josephine, Maggie L., Jessie, Floetta, Nellie Green
an infant, and two infants buried here (who may be the same as Eula and/or Floetta).
His birth may be incorrect as well as the marriage date. In the 1880 census he was listed as 9 years old,
making the birth year about 1871. Other census records are similar, making the birth year between 1871 and 1873.
I have not found a marriage certificate on them yet.
See below for information on their parents.
