Elijah W. Greene, one of the most successful farmers and prominent citizens of Pleasant township, Putnam county, is a native of Ohio, and was born in Licking county, August 13, 1826.  He is a son of Henry and Charlotta (Corbin) Greene, both of whom were natives of Huntingdon county, Pa.  The parents were married in Pennsylvania and with their four children came to Ohio in 1825, locating in Licking county.  In the spring of 1833, they removed to Hardin county, and in 1834 to Hancock county, where the mother died in 1836, in about her fortieth year, he dying in Columbus Grove, having spent the fourteen years preceding his death with his son, Elijah W.  Both parents were members of the Methodist church.  To them ten children were born, only two of whom are now living.  The children were as follows: Sarah, who married Coleman and died in Hancock county, Ohio, leaving two children; Ellenor married Thomas Bates and died on the Osage river, in Missouri, leaving two children; Allison, now a farmer, residing about three miles east of Columbus Grove, in Pleasant township, Putnam county, Ohio; Elijah W., our subject; James, Davis, Allen, Iontha and Charlotte, who died in childhood, and Margaret, who married Cooper McComb, of Pleasant township, and died, leaving four children.
Elijah doesn't mention his own wife and children!  Were they all dead by 1896?
