DR. JAMES H. GREEN, of Seymour, is a native of Jef-
ferson County, Ind., born December 19, 1824. His parents were
Abram and Hannah Green, natives of Tennessee and Ohio
respectively. Dr. Green's early education was limited; his
mother having died while he was yet young he was thrown
upon his own resources, and consequently had no advantages for
schooling. He left home with but 25 cents, and but one suit of
clothes, that being of very cheap material and home-made. He
went to Louisville, and without a cent in his pocket, having spent
