Mrs. Mary Coffey's Grandmother says WILLIAM GREEN died at Strawberry Plain s, Jefferson County, TN. Also that middle initial was T, and she thought T homas. He possibly fought with the same CSA unit as son Jesse A. Green (no te on CSA records says Jesse N. Green). My family history was that he join ed the service but came home sick and died there.

William Green 3rd Lieutenant
Resided in Jackson County where he enlisted at age 43.
Appointed 3rd LT to rank 4-27-1861. Present and accounted for until he res igned on February 27, 1862, by reason of "general prostration of the syst em from Typhoid Fever and chronic brochitis".
His son Jesse appears in Confederate Rolls for Jackson County, NC (16th Re giment).
The following are listed for Jackson County, NC: William Green, 3rd Lieute nant, Jackson County, NC. Enlisted age 43. Resigned Feb 27, 1862, of "gene ral prostration of the system from typhoid and chronic Bronchitis". The a ge puts this William as our possible ancestor. Did he possibly re-enlis t? or did he die from illness contacted in the war????? I think it is poss ible he did not die in Tennessee, but returned home and died. (The age he re is correct for our William).
We have William Green, 16th Regiment, Company N, enlisted in Jackson Count y, NC; from Rutherford County, NC. Place and date of enlistment not report ed. Paroled at Greensboro, NC on May 19, 1865. "Family History" says Willi am Green was killed in the Civil War around Strawberry Plains, TN. So f ar I have found no verification. The 16th Regiment, which possibly Willi am served in, did see action at Strawberry Plains, TN.
