Green, Frank (24 JUN 1888 - 4 SEP 1949)

An investigation was held by Clark County authorities into the death of Frank (Willie) Green, employed at the Cyril Alger farm a mile west and north of here.

Alger found Green lying at the foot of the cellar steps about 1:15 a.m. Monday with his head lying on the concrete floor. Dr. F. P. Neis who examined the body said that Green died of a skull fracture.

John Bergermann, Clark County deputy coroner, indicated that no inquest would be held.

Green had been away from the farm Sunday and upon his return apparently became confused and mistook the door leading to the basement for the adjoining door which leads to his room.

Green, who was a veteran of World War I, was born in Cicero, Ill. on June 24, 1888. He had been a resident of Thorp for over twenty-five years. He was an active life member of Cecil Tormey Post No. 118 of the American Legion and had many friends in this community who deeply mourn his passing.

He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Jeredith Meyer of Garfield, N.J.

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Thorp Funeral Home by the Thorp American Legion Post, and interment was made in the East Thorp Cemetery with an honor guard of the American Legion.
