This acknowledgement is an introduction to some and a remembrance to others of my Great Grandfather, Richard Green. I briefly met him at age 11 in 1962. I will never forget seeing him with his black buggy, he would store it in the barn at my grandmother’s home in St. Matthews, SC.

My grandma, Alfreda Green Frederick (Richard Green’s daughter), lived approximately around the corner from the Shiloh Baptist Church where she attended as a member and is buried on those grounds.
