[September], William Greene, Esq., aged 83, the eldest surviving brother of Gen'l Nathaniel Greene of the Revolutionary Army. Throughout his long life the deceased sustained a reputation of an honest man, a faithful friend and a good citizen. The ruling sentiments of his heart were love to God and good will toward men; and his conduct through life was guided by these principles. It may be said of him that he delighted in doing good and that he was never known to say a hard thing or intentionaly do a wrong one. In the war if the Revolution he took a decided part, and throughout the memorable struggle was among the firm, steady and active supporters of American Independance." (Contributed by William M.
