Floyd Griswold Greene

Floyd Griswold Greene wrote an account of his family and his early life in Rogersville, New York for his five daughters in the 1940s. Three of his daughters are living: Margaret Greene Kindig of Pittsford, NY, who sent her father's story to Robert Koch for the Crooked Lake Review, Ruth G. Linfoot of Geneseo, NY, and Alice G. Reed of Kingsport, TN. Two other sisters, Helen G. Clark, Durham, NC, and Mary G. Matthew, Santa Barbara, CA, "would also have been pleased that our father's memories could be shared." There are 18 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. Mr. Greene became a lawyer and was at one time the Division Claims Agent for the Erie Railroad at Hornell.
