  1.  Glen Irwin1 Smith, son of Freddus Irwin Smith and Charlotte Shepard, (#4065) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 25 FEB 1887.  Mansfield Advertiser 2 Mar 1887 - Son to Mrs. Freddus I. Smith at Elk Run Feb 24th. Individual flags: Photograph; WW1. 

 He married Ina or Electra Young * 29 JUN 1921.  (Ina or Electra Young* is #13359.)  Ina was born in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.  Glenn was present as a mechanic on the first commercial air flight which took place near Miami, Florida. He is recognized in the aviation museum in Florida. (See material from Paulina on this) 

      Glen Irwin Smith and Ina or Electra Young* had the following child: 

      2  i.  Muriel2 Smith (#13360) was born 1923.  She married Mr. ? Dierdorf.  (Mr. ? Dierdorf is #13361.)  Paulina indicates Muriel's husband's name was Dierdorf. I assume the Dick in the letter is her husband and Lori and Kent are children.
