The Green Family

Lithuania

The Greens came to America in 1910, escaping anti-Semitism. Hyman, top left, fought in the trenches in Belgium. Postwar, he started a wood, coal and ice business in Chelsea, MA. He had three sons. The eldest became a beloved pediatrician. The middle son became an engineer and employed 100 skilled workers. The youngest expanded their father’s business and supported four families with what eventually became a heating oil business. Only in America!
