Photograph of Will Green, by an Island Falls, Maine, Studio

Photograph of a man identified on the front as Will Green.  The photograph was taken by the Barnes studio of Island Falls, Maine.  Nothing is written on the reverse.

Will may have been the "Willard Green"who was living at Reed Plantation, Maine, at the time of the 1880 Census, in the household of his father Levi Green.  He seems to be the same person identified as "William H. Green", son of Levi Green and his first wife Mary (Hogan) Green, in the record of William's marriage to widow Edith May (Irish) Hackett at Bancroft, Maine, on 2 July 1910.  William gave Reed Plantation as his place of birth and Island Falls as his residence at the time of their marriage.

Note: their marriage record on Ancestry.com erroneously shows Baring, Maine as their marriage place; a close reading shows the place is Bancroft. An edit has been submitted.

I believe this Will was born at Reed Plantation in 1858 and died at Houlton, Maine, in 1945, but haven't yet found records of such.

If you feel that the Will Green pictured is another Will or if you have additional information on the Willard/William H. Green who was the son of Levi and Mary, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
