Other facts


Married Jo Laverne NOMAIDENNAME


  • Loretta Gregory Gay, a cousin of Glen, reports that he lived inClovis, New Mexico.

    When his first wife Jo died, he moved to one of the southern states.Glen was born in 1921.  He appears in the 1930 census with an age of8, because his 9th birthday was a few days after the census date.

    1930 Federal Census, Parmer County, Texas, 23 April, Justice Precinct2, District 185, page 6A, Hse #100, Fam #107

    Green, Mattie Wife F W 35 Married at 17 yrs old OK MS TN
    Green, Glen Son M W 8 OK TX OK

    For some reason for which we have not found records to explain, Taylorand Mattie moved their family to DeQueen, Arkansas, in the Washitamountains along the western border with Oklahoma.  George, Glen'solder brother, married there in September 1935.

    Some time after 1935 and before the 1940 census, Glen's parents movedback to Friona, Texas, along with Glen and his single brother Elmer.Their older brother George had moved near the end of 1935, soon afterhis marriage in DeQueen in September 1935.  The 1940 census reportsthat George's resdience in 1935 was Rural Parmer County, while therest of the family are still in DeQueen.

    After the death of his spouse Jo, Glenn married the widow of hisbrother Harry B Green, Dorothea Marion Benger.  Note the spellingdifference on the Marriage record.  I am told by Hugh Green thatDorothea was the original name, but at some point she herself went tocourt to change the spelling to Dorthea.  At the time he marriedDorthea, they were in Randall County, Texas.  Directory listingsreport them there for the next three years before he died in late1992.
