Biography

Timothy Green was born in 1765. He resided in Worcester, Massachusetts with his wife Mary (aka "Polly" or "Serena") before moving to New York City. Green received his education at Rhode Island College (now Brown University) and practiced law in New York City. He predominantly worked in probate law and the settlement of minor financial disputes. Green was a land speculator and engaged in other mercantile affairs, especially with his brothers Samuel Green, who operated a store in Columbia, South Carolina, and Meltiah Green, who settled in Jamaica and died of yellow fever on the Island of St. Bartholomew. In December 1813, Timothy Green became lost at sea while returning from Charleston, South Carolina aboard the pilot boat, the Patriot . Colonel Aaron Burr's daughter, Theodosia was also onboard. Timothy Green's son, Timothy Ruggles Green, inherited the legal practice. Timothy and Mary's other children included Joseph Martin, Mary E., Martha Lynde Mitchell, Caroline Mitchell, and Elizabeth H. Green.

Timothy Ruggles Green was born to Timothy Green and Mary Green in 1806. He earned a law degree from Brown University in 1840 and inherited his father's legal practice, partnering with his brother-in-law, John W. Green. He served as a trustee of Brown University. He married Cornelia Elizabeth Arnold and they had two children, Arnold Green and Timothy R Green. Timothy Ruggles Green died in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1840.

John Wroughten Mitchell was born in 1796 in Charleston, South Carolina. He married Timothy Green's daughter, Caroline, in 1825. The couple had three children; Clarence Green Mitchell, Anna Elizabeth Mitchell, and Mary Elizabeth Mitchell. John W. Mitchell practiced law in Charleston, South Carolina, beginning in 1817, and in New York when his family relocated in 1835. There, he formed a legal partnership with his brother-in-law, Timothy Ruggles Green. He was appointed the Commissioner of Deeds for Massachusetts in New York City in 1843 and for South Carolina in 1852. John W. Mitchell was active in the Episcopal Church in South Carolina and New York. He served as Treasurer of the Protestant Episcopal Sunday School Union Society and became a member of the General Theological Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal Church in New York. John W. Mitchell died in South Carolina in 1878. His wife Caroline died in 1860.

Clarence Green Mitchell was born to John W. Mitchell and Caroline Mitchell in Charleston, South Carolina, in July 1826. He spent a short period of time in San Francisco, California, in the mid-1850s and received an appointment as Commissioner of Deeds for the State of California in New York in 1852. He married Sarah A. Lindley in New York in 1872. Clarence G. Mitchell worked as an attorney in his father's practice, Mitchells & Hinsdale (in partnership with Elizur B. Hinsdale). Clarence Mitchell played a significant role in the management of distributions from the Mary Green estate to his cousins Timothy Green Mitchell, Martha Louise Mitchell, and Elizabeth ("Lizzie") Green Mitchell. Clarence G. Mitchell died in South Carolina in 1893.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The Green-Mitchell family papers are made up of correspondence, legal documents, receipts, and other financial records pertaining to the business and personal affairs of New York attorneys Timothy Green and John W. Mitchell (Timothy Green's son-in-law). Much of the collection pertains to mercantile affairs and land speculation in the South, Northeast and Western United States. A large portion of the collection pertains to South Carolina (Charleston), New York, and Massachusetts (Worcester).

The Correspondence series contains 1,470 letters to and from members of the Green and Mitchell families between June 26, 1780 and October 1, 1880. Four hundred and sixteen incoming letters to Timothy Green date between 1780, and 1812. He received the bulk of them from family members, business partners, and clients in South Carolina, New York, and Worcester, Massachusetts. Timothy's brother, Samuel Green, a prominent merchant in Columbia, South Carolina, was among his most frequent correspondents. The collection includes 160 letters by Timothy Green, primarily sent from New York. Timothy Green's correspondence comprises the bulk of the collection's materials related to land speculation.

John W. Mitchell received 540 letters, approximately a third of the series, between 1806 and 1880. His primary correspondents wrote from Charleston, South Carolina; Fort Wayne, Indiana; and New York. The subject matter represented in these letters is diverse, pertaining to business and personal affairs, and the Episcopal Church. Other frequent writers include Timothy Ruggles Green, Clarence G. Mitchell, Samuel Green, and Judge Peter P. Bailey, founder of Trinity Episcopal Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The Legal Documents series relates to estates administration and 48 legal suits in which the Green and Mitchell families were involved, either as attorneys or as parties to a suit. Materials for some of these cases are extensive and others include only a few pages. The cases comprising much of the series are Conklin v. Mitchell and Davis v. Duffie . Conklin v. Mitchell (New York, 1852-57) pertains to a land dispute between George Conklin and defendant John W. Mitchell. Davis v. Duffie (New York, 1825-1861) concerns charges brought against Smith Davis for fraud and a related mortgage taken out by Cornelius R. Duffie. John W. Mitchell and Clarence G. Mitchell defended Duffie.

Five certificates document commissions held by John W. Mitchell and Clarence G. Mitchell. Additional legal papers include insurance policies, powers of attorney, deeds, civil actions, summonses, depositions, agreements, and other items compiled by Timothy Green and John W. Mitchell in carrying out their work as attorneys.

The Financial Documents series contains 143 receipts, checks, bank notes, accounts, and other financial records dating from 1785-1874. Timothy Green compiled 11 summaries of accounts, representing a portion of his business transactions between 1787 and 1809.

Printed materials include a quarterly chronicle for the Mission to the Working Men of Paris (1877), two monthly bulletins for the Charity Organization Society in New York (1884), a notice of sale, and a cover page from the book One Day With Whistler.

Miscellaneous materials include two items: a partially-printed report card for Clarence G. Mitchell at the Episcopal Institute at Troy, New York, in 1837, and a genealogical document concerning the Boudinot family of Philadelphia.
