Charlie Newton Glenn
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 1, 1877
Death: Dec. 26, 1951

Charlie was a sharecropper all of his life. He and Ella adopted my grandfather Larry Glenn and my great Aunt Isabelle Glenn Keener, their paternal nephew and niece, when they were very young, having been abandoned by their parents, John H. and Eva Pauline Blair Glenn.

My great Aunt Isabelle said that while the work was hard Charlie and Ella were good to the children and gave them a sense of stability they had not known. She said that the knowledge of having one place to lay your head at night was probably the greatest gift she ever received from their adoption.
