Charles C. Green, who passed away in Utica on the 1st of January, 1907, at the age of seventy two years,
was extensively engaged in business as a hop dealer here for many years. His birth occurred at Demorestville, Prince
Edward county, Canada, his parents being Jonathan and Lucinda (Candee) Green. He remained at home until he completed
his grammar school education and then went to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he took up the study of law. He was admitted
to the bar in St. Louis and there practiced his profession for some years. An uncle, Charles Green, who was a hop
dealer of Hubbardsville, New York, persuaded our subject to come east and engage in business as his partner. After
leaving that place C. C. Green established himself in business as a hop dealer at Utica, conducting a very extensive
enterprise of this character for many years. On account of the unsteady market, however, he later met with reverses
and was obliged to withdraw from the business. He was at all times upright and honorable, enjoying a reputation
for business integrity that was unassailable.
In 1877 Mr. Green was united in marriage to Mrs. Martha Gruman Brainard. Her father was a native of Clinton, New
York, of which town her grandfather was one of the earliest settlers. Both were agriculturists by occupation. To
Mr. and Mrs. Green was born a son, Lyman J., who is a resident of Utica. Mr. Green also had a stepson, Louis D.
Mr. Green was an active and consistent member of the Presbyterian church, exemplifying its teachings in his daily
life. He commanded the regard and esteem of all with whom he came in contact, the circle of his friends being almost
coextensive with the circle of his acquaintances. He was a profound student and clever writer and made frequent
contributions to the press. His residence in Utica was at No. 164 Park avenue, where Mrs. Green still makes her
