|Dr. James C. Green, son Hugh, and wife Azzie, c. 1892|
On October 23, 1883, James was married to Azzie E. Winship, a young woman from Rushville, Indiana. The couple had two children -- an infant daughter who died in 1885 and a son, Hugh Clifford Green, born on December 31, 1886.
In 1892, James C. Green was chosen to be a delegate to the Indiana Republican convention. The convention, which was held on June 28 at the Princess Rink in Fort Wayne, lasted for only one day. The event drew such a large crowd that officials threatened to clear the hall to make room for all the delegates waiting to get inside. In the chaos, James was pushed against a door knob and critically wounded. Sadly, he died from his injuries a few weeks later.
