Conecuh CountyWar of 1812 veteran John Green (1790-1882) settled in Burnt Corn in 1816. He held many public offices, established the first school, and represented Conecuh County in the state legislature in 1824 and 1829. He was the Conecuh delegate to the 1861 (Secession) Convention of the People of Alabama and the 1875 Constitutional Convention. 'He is allowed to be, even by those who oppose his sentiments, a man of unimpeachable character, a worthy citizen, and a kind obliging neighbor' (The Southern Evangelist, 1835). 'It may be truly said that he had but few if any enemies, and no man who ever lived, so far as he was known, had more friends' (Mobile Register, 1882).
