Greene Township Cemetery and Death Records, Series No. 5 Authors: Mahoning County Chapter OGS members
This publication contains the carefully transcribed readings of the tombstones in the thirteen cemeteries located in the township, which includes three family cemeteries: Callahan, Cool, and Dressel. Also included are the complete county death records, the Veterans Grave Registrations and the Baldwin Records. Green Township was one of the townships formed from the Congress Lands. It is six miles square, made up of sections, each containing 640 acres. Original purchases, called patents, were made directly from the federal government through the land office at Steubenville, Ohio. 

In 1811 the township was organized for civil purposes and named Beaver. The name was thought to come from a beaver dam along Mill Creek. The dam was in evidence into the 1880s. Green Township was a part of Columbiana County until 1846 when it became part of Mahoning County. The township is bounded on the east by Beaver Township, on the south by Columbiana County, on the west by Goshen Township, and on the north by the 41st parallel, following Western Reserve Road. The principal stream is Cherry Valley Run. 

The early settlers of Green Township included Lewis Baker of Kentucky; George Pow and his wife, Mary; Elisha Teeters and his family, from Washington Co., Pa. Revolutionary War soldiers included John Goodman and Jeremiah Callahan; Jeremiah was from Redstone, Pa. Also Urban Betz of Cumberland Co., Pa. and Baltzer Roller and his wife, Alse, of Huntingdon Co., Pa.
