VIPs of Greene County

Starting in 2021, we will be highlighting some of the VIPs of Greene County. Greene County has a rich history, and it is due to the work of many early citizens! These individuals contributed to the county in a number of ways - be it early settlers/pioneers, elected officials, educators, inventors, or those that provided invaluable resources or services to the community. 

As part of this project, the estate file of each individual will be scanned and posted below. In addition to the estate files, we will post a blog on the life and achievements of the selected VIP.
