Photo Number 268
I researched the Greens and none of the dates I have fit this photo. However they were interesting people.
James Green Jan 9, 1877 to December 16, 1936. His father ( John L.) was the Chinese Inspector for the US Immigration Service in Portal. The family had moved to Portal in 1895. When John L Green died of diabetes in 1905, his son donated the NW corner of his farm for a cemetery. I can find no record of a Mrs. James Green..she is not buried in the family cemetery. However the Green Family was quite large..there were thirteen children, and not all of them are buried in the cemetery either.
I never could find any reference to Wheatland..and the 1/4 mile south west of town does not fit where her husbands farm was one mile east of Portal. So I will give up on this one.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
