John N. Green

Mustered into service as a  Assistant Surgeon on July 29th, 1861

Died 14 April 1894


John died while in California and was buried in the Pioneer Memorial Cemetery in Los Angles County California. He went to California in February of 1894 for his health leaving his wife and four children at home in Kansas City Missouri. His obituary stated that he was only temporarily buried in California.  Currently it is not known if his body was sent back to Missouri for permanent burial.


Approximately one mile from the Greene home in Kansas City is the Union Cemetery. There is one grave marker with the name "Greene" on it but otherwise it is unreadable. It is very possible it is the grave of John.

Surgeon Greene was discharged from the service on December 28th, 1862.


He filed for a pension in March of 1882.
