COL. E. H. R. GREEN PHOTO FOUND ONLINE 

   NBS member W. David Perkins writes: "I came across this 
   website today with a photo of Col. E.H.R. Green.  I have 
   been researching Col. Green for around 10 years (as he 
   owned a large number of early United States silver dollars 
   1794-1803).  I don't recall seeing a photo of him before. 
   I'll have to check my copy of "The Day they Shook the 
   Plum Tree" which is at home - it may have a photo, too."

   [Notes:  The web page describes a railway car owned by the 
    Terrell Heritage Society of Terrell, Texas.  The page states: 

   "Col. E. H. R. Green was the son of Hetty Green, who was 
   known to be the richest woman in the world at the time of her 
   death. He was active in politics in Texas and maintained his 
   voting residence in Texas by leaving a suit of clothes and one 
   of his wooden legs in a rented room in one of fine residences 
   of Terrell. Col. Green also maintained the main offices of the 
   Texas Midland Railway, in Terrell. 

   [The] photo (exact date unknown) shows Col. E.H.R. Green, 
   President; W.P. Allen, Vice-president; and L.W. Wells, 
   General manager, Texas Midland Railroad.  Note the comical 
   gesture made by Col. Green above Mr. Allen's head."

   Hetty Green:
