Green, Luke (1859? - 18 Oct. 1941)
George Green, a private serving with the Service Company, 128th Infantry, W. N. G at Camp Livingston, La., was called to the bedside of his aged father, Luke Green, arriving at the Indian Hospital at Tomah, Wis., the night before his death, which occurred on Saturday, October 18.
Mr. Green was about 82 years of age, having lived practically all his life in the Dells Dam community until a year ago when George went into the service.
He was married to Miss Emma Smoke, who preceded him in death in 1912. They had three children, two of whom have passed away. When George was five years of age he was taken to the Indian Mission at Wittenberg where he attended school until his father remarried and brought him back here to attend the local Indian school with his step sisters and brother.
Burial services for Mr. Green were held Tuesday at the John Mike home at Dells Dam, the Indian ceremonial being performed.
