(01) Henry James Denver Green:

Notes:


“...Mary Hommel Warner, who came to Greenwood before Greenwood was, in 1867, could tell -many an absorbing tale of the early days and early ways. She was well acquainted with the river and its floods, both spring freshets and the floods when the dams were opened to float logs. When she was about eighteen years old (b. 1859 = c1877), she, with Frank Peterson, Denver Green (b. c1871, then age 6) and Addie Armstrong, was enjoying a few hours on the river bank below the present bridge, when the river raised and logs began coming down. The two boys and Addie ventured on logs in an eddy, but the rapidly rising water moved the logs quickly and the three young folks fell, into the river. Mary took a long pole and reached it to Denver Green, thus helping him to shore, then Addie had her turn to hang onto the pole and as she was towed to shore Frank came with her, he hanging onto her foot. They all felt they owed their lives to Mary. When the bridge went out in the flood of 1887 she often rowed passengers across the river, even in the nighttime, as she lived near the river....” The Hub of Clark Co 1853-1934 Chapter IV
