In Memoriam
Resolutions of Pettit’s Creek Farmers Club on Death of Dr. Greene.

The Pettit Creek Farmers Club in regular meeting assembled on March 2nd, 1907, adopted the following memorial and resolution and ordered them spread upon the minutes of the club, and requested the secretary to furnish a copy to the family of the deceased and to the Cartersville News, for publication.

Dr. J. G. Greene joined the Pettit Creek Farmers’ Club in April, 1904.  He entered heartily into its plan and purpose.  While the practice of medicine was his life’s calling he was broadminded in his views and always a welcome speaker at our monthly meetings.  As an agriculturist, he was in full sympathy with the club’s effort to improve farming conditions among us.

Dr. Greene was unusually well informed on all current events and topics of general interest to our people.  His information was therefore valuable and instructive.  We heard him gladly.

He was also a gentleman of culture and refinement “a noble son of noble stock” of Georgia people – and enlisted in the cause of right and duty to the end of his useful life.

Dr. Greene was also a good physician, kind, sympathetic, careful; and painstaking.  He was gentlemanly and ethical in his association with his brother practitioners, a good citizen, a kind neighbor and devoted to his family and loyal to his friends.  Dr. Greene was a faithful, consistent and active member of the Baptist church.

We desire to place this sincere tribute of respect and love on the enduring record of our Farmers’ Club and we are solicitous that his family may understand our heartfelt sympathy in their great loss, of husband and father and to bear willing testimony to Dr. Greene’s excellency as a patriot and upright citizen, as personally known to us, his colleagues in this club work and co-worker for the best things in our every day life and purposes.

Resolved.  We as members of the Pettit’s Creek Farmers’ Club in regular session assembled, desire to pay this tribute of respect and esteem to Dr. Greene whom we knew to love and honor.

Resolved.  That this memorial and resolution be spread upon the minutes of the club and a copy be furnished by the secretary to the family of the deceased.

Howard E. Felton, Ch’n.
