GREEN --- Charley Green
Lincoln Beacon, Oct. 13, 1887
--- Charley Green, a young man for many years well known to all the old settlers of Lincoln County, left Lincoln for Salina about Sept. 10, to find work. Upon Tuesday morning of last week he hired out to Oscar Seitz, of Salina, to carry hod for the masons, who had about three hours work to do before finishing their contract. After the mason work was done, Mr. Green was to have the job of clearing up the premises, getting them ready for occupancy.
At 11:30 a.m. he reached the top of a ladder at a scaffold 35 feet from the ground, with a hod of mortar, which he let down from his shoulder. As he did so a rotten board in the scaffold broke and he fell, first striking a second scaffold about 10 feet below, and from there to the gorund. He was lying on his stomach with his head doubled under his chest and his neck terribly wrenched but no bones broken or joints dislocated. When raised up he said, "Did I fall?" and then inquired, "How far?"
Being a total stranger to those about him, he was asked where he boarded; to which he answered, "At Mr. Vall's," and immediately became unconscious. He died at 2:30 in the afternoon and did not regain consciousness. He was brought to Lincoln Wednesday and taken to the house of Ed M. Harris, on old friend. No relatives were in Kansas and none arrived to attend the funeral, which was held at Mr. Harris' house on Thursday, at 10 a.m. conducted by Rev. Geo. Tenney. The interment was made in the Lincoln cemetery.
In January 1872, Charley Green, then a lad of 13 years, came to Mr. Harris' house when the latter lived upon his farm 6˝ miles southeast of Lincoln. This was the day his father's family arrived in Lincoln county, and Mr. Harris' house was the first he entered after his arrival, and by a most peculiar fatality, Mr. Harris' doors were open to receive his lifeless body nearly 16 years afterward.
Charles Green was born in Fayette County, Ind., in Sept. 1850, and his home was 6˝ miles east of Lincoln most of the time since Jan. 18, 1872. He was a young man of exemplary habits, scrupulously honest, quiet, gentlemanly and upright in speech and walk. He filled an humble place in the world's economy, but he filled it with serupulous fidelity to his employers and to all his obligations and responsibilities. His friends love to think that he neither lived in vain nor will reap a slight reward.
