John J. Green

John J. Green was born in Ireland March 5, 1857.  He was educated in the schools of Armagh, and came to this country in 1879.  He located in New York, and was in the mercantile business until 1882, when he came out to Kansas City, where he has ever since been.

     Upon his arrival here he associated himself in the real estate business with his brother, T. J. Green, and that firm played no small part in the development of Kansas City.

     A Republican in politics, he soon made himself a prominent figure in the party locally, and in 1888 was elected Alderman from the Seventh Ward.  His record in the Council was such as to inspire confidence, and in 1894 he was elected City Treasurer by a flattering majority.  In 1896 he was renominated and re-elected, and his record in that office has been a standard of efficiency and trustworthiness.

     Mr. Green married Miss Ida Fuller, daughter of George W. Fuller, April 21, 1886, and they have two children, George Fuller Green and Elsie Green.

He is a Mason, Scottish Rite and York, a Shriner, and a Knight Templar.
