Leslie A. Green

Marshal Leslie Green was shot and killed near Cedar Lake by a man he attempted to question about a cabin fire. The suspect was captured by a posse a short time later and charged with arson and Marshal Green's murder.

The suspect, 62, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison on February 18, 1938. He was released on an unknown date before 1960, possibly due to bad health.

He was survived by his wife, daughter, and three sons.

This man (LAG) was my Great Grandfather! Tonight I googled him on a whim. I’m so happy to see this write up of him and his service. His son (my grandpa who was 14 when his father was shot) and his grandson (my daddy) were both named after him. My Daddy was L A Green 111. I’m very appreciative of his strength and honor. He was a great man!
Thank you for remembering him!

Great Granddaughter
