    The last Revolutionary pensioner in Maine was Mrs. Rhoda Green, who died on the 16th inst.  The following is a sketch of the venerable lady's history:
     Mrs. Green became entitled to her pension by reason of the services of her first husband, Abel Nutting, who was a soldier in the United States through the whole period of the Revolutionary war.  They were married shortly after the close of the war.  Nutting died in 1828.  There were fourteen children born to them, thirteen of whom reached the age of manhood.  After his death she married William Green, whom she survived some twenty-two years.  Her maiden name was Rhoda Coombs, born in Bath, Maine, June 11, 1767, consequently almost reached the age of one hundred years.  She retained her bodily and mental faculties up to the time of her death, with the exception of her hearing, which became partially impaired some five years ago, and for the past two years she has been entirely deaf.  The descendants of the deceased are:  Children, 6 living, 8 dead; grand-children, 46 living, 18 dead; great grand-children, 141 living, 5 dead; great-great-grand-children, 13 living, 1 dead; making a total of 206 now living, and 32 deceased.
