Captain Gordon C. Greene
We are grateful to Peggy Hays for sharing this family story about Captain Gordon C. Greene: My grandmother, Odessa Teeman Clark, used to tell me a story about Cpt. Greene who was a sailor who brought her a conch shell with the end cut off that her family used to call the men in from the field. I still have that shell. She also told me of a time when he brought back a load of bananas to her parents who ran a store at Eight Mile. They sold some of the bananas but she ATE a very large quantity and "foundered" on them. She was in her 80's before she could stand anything that had bananas in it.
