Death of James Green, Esq. – among the latest victims to that dread disease, Asiatic cholera, we lament to have to number Mr. James Green[1], formerly of Keady. The lamentable event occurred at his late residence, Laragh-House, Carrickmacross, on Friday.  Mr. Green’s loss will be severely felt by those to whom his capital and skill gave remembered her employment.  It was a man of bland manners and philanthropic disposition, beloved by the hundreds to whom he gave employment.  In his extensive flax spinning mills, which he conducted prosperously through the late commercial crisis.  He was an Englishman by birth, Irish from choice, and possessed the prudence of the one with the ardour of the other.  His remains were interred on Sunday, in key churchyard.  His funeral cortège was the most numerous and respectable ever, perhaps, witnessed in that neighbourhood.  – Newry Telegraph.
