A. M. Green owned 108 acres in the south part of section 19, Marion Township in the 1859 atlas of Livingston County. The Green Cemetery is located on that property. It is about 1 acre in size. A lot of old stones there, some with death dates from the late 1840's. Many are broken and unreadable.

Here is the transcription from the stones done by the DAR about 1950:
Adolphus M. Green, d. 6-23-1869, aged 75y 7m 23d
Elethear Green, wife of Adolphus, d. 2-12-1867, aged 66y 9m 10d
The earliest deaths recorded in Vol. 1 of the death records occurred in April 1867 so Elethear died before they started recording deaths and is not listed in county Death records.
There are only names and dates on tombstone and no poetry or prose.
