    Dr. Scott Green was a Carthage chiropractor, residing at 1022 Oak Street. His wife was the former Miss Rose Hamilton. He had been a resident of the community for 40 years and was known well by all.

    He had a combination of health issues; prostatic hypertrophy, chronic nephritis and an aneurysm of the abdomen that had been active for 6 or 7 years. His cause of death was when the aneurysm ruptured.

    Dr. C. H. Isbell was the attending physician and funeral arrangements were under the direction of Knell Mortuary of Carthage, Missouri.

    He was the son of William Watkins and Linnie (Daniels) Watkins."
