    Ned Green

    by keeweechic Updated Feb 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ned Green, son of the 'Witch of Wall Street' Hetty Green (at the time the richest woman in America), was a colourful character, and as well-known for his personal exploits as for his business acumen. Ned Green made the first automobile trip in Texas, a jaunt from Terrell to Dallas, at flying speeds of 20-25 mph. He also suffered the first auto accident in Texas. During the Dallas trip, Green and an auto company representative George Dorris were squeezed off the road by a farm wagon and they ended up in a ditch! - I guess he forgot to use his horn!
