Fred Irwin Glass
Birth: Jan. 3, 1877
Adams County
Illinois, USA
Death: Oct. 27, 1934
Morgan County
Illinois, USA

This precious man had so many things happen to him. I have studied his life for a long time now. This is my summation from what I have researched about his life.

He went off to war. When he got back, he ended up going to the Jacksonville State Hospital. Because it was so soon after his time in the military, I have to assume that he didn't do well with the memories of war. He spent many years at the hospital. The census's say that he was "insane." Had a few times where he was out for a year or so, then would go back in. He actually died in Jacksonville, Morgan, IL, which is where the hospital is. So, I am assuming that he died in the State Hospital.

I can only imagine how hard it had to be been for Jessie, being alone and trying to manage the struggles of having a loved one in a hospital for a long time.

We just don't know the struggles of military families and all that they give up to protect & defend our country. Rest in sweet peace Frederick, you deserve it.
