Compiled by Carlotta Ragsdale January 16, 2006, with some additions and corrections by Patti Vance Hays (pvh). Ms. Ragsdale has performed considerable research of the people resting in Green Cemetery. There are times that listings appear where the gravesite is either unmarked or the grave marker is no longer legible. If a marker is available, and she has the full name that is different from that on the marker that name is shown at the end in brackets [ ].
