Byram Green (April 15, 1786 – October 18, 1865) was a New York state legislator for years in the Assembly and Senate, from 1816 to 1824. He was elected United States Representative from New York and served 1843-1845.
Early life and education
He earned a degree from Williams College in 1808. There in the summer of 1806, Green was among the five participants in the Haystack Prayer Meeting. Within a few years, those men launched the American missionary movement.
Green was later instrumental in having a monument created to honor that meeting and movement. It was placed at Mission Park at Williams College.
Green became a professor in a college at Beaufort, South Carolina in 1810. He went on to study ("read") law with practitioners, in the tradition of the day, and was admitted to the bar. He began to practice law.
He went to New York, where he settled in Sodus. During the War of 1812, he fought in the Battle of Sodus Point.
