Biography

Charles was the son of Fran­cis D. & An­ge­li­na Green, and hus­band of Ab­i­gail Fran­ces Blais­dell.

He played the or­gan at the First Pres­by­ter­i­an Church in Will­iams­port, Penn­syl­van­ia, and lat­er moved to the Pine Street Me­thod­ist Church and be­came a Me­thod­ist Epis­co­pal pas­tor.

Rev. Charles F. Green, aged 70 years, found­er and head of the Me­mor­i­al mis­sion, died Sun­day morn­ing at his re­si­dence,15 West Canal Street.

He was em­i­nen­tly suc­cess­ful in mis­sion work and event­u­al­ly de­voted his life to mis­sion work in plac­es which did not appeal to the church­es of the city.

About 20 years ago he founded the Me­mor­ial mis­sion which is now lo­cat­ed at 337 West Jef­fer­son Street, and the clos­ing years of his life were close­ly knit with his mis­sion which he served faith­ful­ly and made suc­cess­ful.
