Lincoln Green, Former Feudist, Succumbs at 82

Sneedville, Tenn. - Death has silenced the last participant of the publicized Green-Jones feud of 40 years ago. Lincoln Green, 82-year-old mountain man who shouldered an accurate rifle in the East Tennessee hills, died Tuesday at the home of a daughter to write the last chapter of the feud. Residents have forgotten the cause of the long-standing trouble between the Greens and Jones, but it lasted many years with various strife. Greene's last brush with the law was three years ago, being sentenced to a year in prison upon conviction of shooting his son-in-law.

The deceased was born in Lee county, Virginia, March 28th, 1836 – professed religion when fifteen years old and attached herself to the Methodist Episcopal Church in the year 1855, in which she lived a most consistent and exemplary member, contributing thereto, making one of the brightest stars of the church until her death; that a good woman has gone the poor will know, to whom she was always charitable and kind, and gave much; they will miss her vacant chair, of which her most esteemed surviving consort and children will feel most sensitively. Had she had an enemy in the end and it is unknown, and the public will generally sympathize with the bereaved family; but she is gone and in that rest assigned to the faithful she is resting today.
