  Carl DeFord Green  and  Mary Louise (Shore) Green

Carl DeFord Green was born on 8 Feb 1914.  His birthplace is currently not known.

He enlisted into the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942.  He served in the 1st Tank Battalion, 1st Marine Division in the Pacific theatre during World War II.

Mary Louise (Shore) Green was born on 22 Apr 1907 in San Antonio, Texas.

She is the eldest daughter of Jesse Perry Shore and Anna Agnes (Gaffney) Shore.

Jesse Perry Shore was born in 1877 in Illinois.  His father was born in Illinois, and his mother was born in Missouri.  Anna Agnes (Gaffney) Shore was born in 1872 in Texas.  Her father was born in Texas, and her mother was born in England.

It's thought that Louise was named for Jesse's aunt, Louisa (Shore) Winn, who had raised Jesse from a 2-year old child to adulthood.

Louise had previously been married to Frank Knox and William Copp , with no children.

Carl and Louise Green had one child:

  • Carl Thomas Green, born 17 Sep 1943.

Carl DeFord Green died on 3 Jan 1993 in San Marcos, California.  Louise died on 28 Jan 1990 in Vista, California.

All of these Family Documents are shown below.

Census records.

The 1910 U.S. Federal Census shows the parents Jesse and Anna Shore with two children, Ernest (age 7) and Louise (age 3), living at 230 Sandmeyer Street, San Antonio.

The 1920 U.S. Federal Census shows Anna Shore with four children, Ernest (age 16), Louise (age 12), Annie (age 9), and Jessie (age 7), now living at 130 Sandmeyer Street, San Antonio.  Their father Jesse Shore was counted in a separate military census at Camp Travis, San Antonio.

Other documents.

Photographs from Louise Shore's childhood are shown below.

An early photograph shows three young children:  Mary Louise (at the right) with her brother Ernest Shore and sister Margaret Ann Shore.

As the eldest sister, Louise was simply called "Sister" by her three younger sisters Margaret Ann, Jessie Kathryn, and Frances Shore.  They were small children, and it was pronounced "Sissie".

Later on, as the Shore sisters grew to adults and had children of their own, she was still known affectionately in the family as "Aunt Sissie".  That is the origin of the names written on some of her photographs.

On 28 Nov 1941 Louise traveled to Panama to visit her sister Margaret Ann Roberts, her husband Joseph Roberts and their three children.  A week after her arrival the United States was attacked at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and the country was at war.  The family was evacuated from Panama to the US in January 1942.  A photograph below shows Louise during her brief stay in Panama.

Louise was an accomplished artist.  Her landscapes and still life art, mostly painted in oils, graced the family's homes and were deeply admired in the family and by visitors.

Photographs are shown below of Carl and Louise (Shore) Green and their son Carl Thomas.
