Caroline Robinson Green

Elizabeth Caroline [Robinson] Green was the daughter of John E. Robinson and Rachael Reed Emerson, born February 9, 1840 in Alabama.    She married Jacob D. Green about 1863, probably in Alabama, and they had six children:  Sarah Jane Sallis/Silas, Texanna May, Rachael (never married), Archileas Moorman Green (merchant in Amory), Mary Maud Dickinson, and John Denton Green (doctor in Smithville and Noxubee County).

In 1911, a widowed Caroline was likely living with her son in Smithville, where he is shown as living in the 1910 census.  In 1920, Caroline was living with her daughter, Texanna, in Amory, where Texanna's husband, John May, was a merchant. 

Caroline died in 1925 and was buried in Mt. Pleasant Methodist Cemetery near Tremont, where her gravestone is shown above.   Her younger brother, my great-great grandfather George Emerson Robinson, is also buried there, having died in 1907.
