We recently had news from Lois Haglund that her mother Katharine Mocine had died. The photo shows her on her wedding day in Republic, Michigan, USA, when she married David Mocine (1915-1993). Though we never met, we were in correspondence with David and Katharine in the late 1980s and early 1990s, about the Green family history, and general topics. They then lived in Monticello, New Mexico. David Mocine was Val’s third cousin once removed, and his ancestry, shown in the pedigree chart, show something of how the Green family were globalised. William Goodall Green was born in Canada, died in England. His son Edward Lister Green was born in Canada, married in Grahamstown, died in New Zealand, and the Rutherfurd branch moved to the USA. David and Katharine had six children, and grandchildren by all of them. They also wrote a book, “Gila hunting: the saga of a New Mexico ranch family”, and wrote interesting letters about the trips they had taken to Mexico.
