Birth: Sep. 24, 1888
Waverly
Morgan County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1959
Saint Louis
St. Louis County
Missouri, USA

Son of Elizabeth Ann Harbour
and George Prescot Workman

My maternal grandfather entered the U.S. Navy in 1906, married an unknown, had one daughter, and divorced. He served WWI aboard ship as a Chief Boatswain's Mate and was wounded in battle with the Germans. Recovering in hospital, he met Gladys Vickers and married August 25, 1919. They had two living daughters (five other babies miscarried). After serving 15 years in the Navy, and living the best years of his life, Gladys made him resign from duty at Goat Island, San Francisco as she hated living apart from her relatives. His second career was with the Railroad as Head Steward in the dining car. He was a People Person, and often got hot tips on the horse races.
