[Jessie's note]

Here is my transcription of this note -- Allen, March 16, 1997

This is James Green, son of Ira & Pamela Green, my father.  He died in
                                                   May 1898 at age about 35
years in Columbus Ohio. -- Jessie Mae Green Mellen.  His brother
Will, and wife Amanda raised me.  He had three other brothers,
 John and Lew and Leonard.  Our family ran to boys.  I had no
 sisters -- just four brothers Ira born the the day Papa was buried, Jim,
                                                    Oscar & Charles,
who died in infancy.  Ira was renamed Charles in his memory.
