Family and Personal Background

Timothy V. Green was born in 1811 in New York. He was married to a woman named Mary. They had several children.


Wartime Experience

Timothy V. Green was listed as a private in Company F of the 36th Indiana.  The Wayne County (Indiana) Soldier’s Register of 1865 says that he was discharged in February 1862 for physical disability.  The regimental history by William Grose lists January 17, 1862 as his discharge date. Official records from the Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Indiana indicate he was mustered out with the regiment on September 21, 1864. The same report indicates that he was promoted to full corporal (although Grose’s regimental history does not show this).

It is likely that Timothy was one of the many who became sick during the winter of 1861-62 at New Haven, Kentucky and Camp Wickliffe.  Three men from Company F died during that time and several others were discharged for physical disability.


Post-war Life

In 1865, Timothy lived in Richmond, Indiana. In 1880, he still lived in Richmond with his wife Mary and his two sons: James (age 38) and William (age 35). His occupation is listed as carpenter.

In 1872, Timothy filed an application for an invalid’s pension (#176945). In 1890, his widow applied for a pension (application #450956, certificate #429820).
