Size .5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 400 items)
Abstract Charles S. Green lived in Jimes and Lexington, Thomasville Township, Davidson County, N.C. He was probably a farmer, but his papers indicate that he also had some business interests, invented a device called Green's Horse Detachers, and formally represented several former Civil War soldiers to the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Pensions. The collection consists of legal and business papers, including Civil War pension applications to the federal government for claims of former Union soldiers; a large collection of receipts, especially tax and post office receipts; correspondence and other papers related to his patent for Green's Horse Detachers; letters from the Texas firm Duffie and Duffie attempting to locate a missing heir; other business and legal papers; and newspaper clippings.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Charles S. Green flourished from about 1880 to about 1910. He listed his residence as Jimes or Lexington, N.C., and paid his taxes, 1892-1907, in Thomasville Township, Davidson County. Based on an undated inventory of taxable property--which included 40 acres of land, one mule, two milk cows, one calf , and three pigs--he was probably a farmer, though his papers indicate that he also had some business interests, invented a device called Green's Horse Detachers, and formally represented several former Civil War soldiers to the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Pensions. Some of these claimants granted him power of attorney.
