        12.  Alice Melissa3 Greene (Meliassa A.2 Wood, Francis1) was born 30 Jan 1857 in Newport Township,  Washington Co., Ohio, and died 24 Aug 1925 in Cook County Winnetka IL.  She married Edward M Tracewell 1887 in Kansas.  He was born 1842 in Parkersburg WV.

 

Notes for Alice Melissa Greene:

E. M. TRACEWELL, senior, member of the well known law firm of Tracewell & Moore, at Columbus, whose portrait is presented on the opposite page, has been a resident of Cherokee County since the spring of 1882. He was born at Parkersburg, Virginia, now West Virginia, in 1847, and is a son of W. N. and L. V. (Brown) Tracewell.

 

W. N. Tracewell was also born at Parkersburg, where for some years he was an attorney. In 1853 he removed to Indiana, and was engaged there in the practice of his profession until shortly before his death, which took place while on a visit in Washington, D. C., April 19,1898. E. M. Tracewell's only brother, Robert J. Tracewell, has been Comptroller of the United States Treasury, at Washington, D. C., since 1897.

 

E. M. Tracewell was reared in Indiana, and studied law at the State University at Bloomington during 1866-67-68. He was admitted to the bar at Corydon, Indiana, in March, 1869. After 12 years of active practice at Leavenworth, Indiana, Mr. Tracewell came to Columbus, Cherokee County, in 1882, where he has continued in his profession ever since. He was first associated with the late Colonial Hallowell, United States District Attorney, later, with T. P. Anderson, now of Kansas City, and since February, 1901, he has been a partner of W. J. Moore. Mr. Tracewell has quietly and industriously pursued his profession, taking part in much of the county's important litigation, and meeting with the success which results from honest effort and a profound knowledge of the law. He commands the respect of the officers of the court, and entertains cordial relations with other members of the Cherokee County Bar.

 

Mr. Tracewell was first married, in Indiana, to Laura E. Lane, who died there in 1878, leaving three children, namely: W. N., who is employed in the Post Office Department at Washington, D. C.; John E., who has been in a clerical position at Denver for the past four years; and Nellie, who is at home. In 1887 Mr. Tracewell was married, in Kansas, to Alice M. Greene, of Newport, Ohio, and they have a family of four daughters and two sons, namely: Grace G., Vallie G., Katherine, Thane, Edward M. and Lucy. The children have been reared in the faith of the Baptist Church, of which Mrs. Tracewell is a consistent member.

 

Mr. Tracewell is fraternally associated with the Knights of Pythias, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Modern Woodmen of America, Knights and Ladies of Security, and Sons and Daughters of Justice.
