William Wilkinson Green

(1820- )

"Green, William Wilkinson, lawyer, author, was born Aug. 1, 1820, in Hindostan. This successful lawyer has been editor and owner of the Daily Syracuse Democrate, and of the Weekly Onondaga Democrate, and other publications. He is the author of a work on Morals; a prize essay on The American Government; and a number of meritorious poems."

[Thomas William Herringshaw, Herringshaw's Encyclopedia of American Biography of the Nineteenth Century 420 (Chicago: American Publishers' Assoc., 1898)]

[An OCLC entry for William Wilkinson Green indicates that Green was born in 1839, not 1920 as Herringshaw reports.]
