      could be his son?
      Newspaper Article - Jefferson County Journal - July 29, 1884 - Adams Centre - Deloss Green, who died July 20, at the old homestead of the family in Hounsfield, was a resident of this place at the time of his death. He was a son of a late Elder Wanton Green and one of the large family of brothers and sisters who grew to manhood and womanhood under that parent roof and then scattered abroad to make homes and rear families of their own. They are nearly all dead now, and a curious fact concerning their decrease is that wherever they lived they all went back to the old homestead to die. I have known Deloss Green ever since I was a boy and I am old enough to have dim eyes and grey hair now, and I never heard any man speak ill of him, and whiat is much more to his praise, I never hear him speak ill of any man or woman.
