  • Name Glen L. Atwood 
    • On his death certificate and on his tombstone his name is spelled "Glen." However, the family apparently spells his name "Glenn." Also, according to his nieces, Beverly Atwood Blankenship and Reba Atwood Ceniglis, Glenn did not have a middle name. They said that when he signed up for the military he was told that "he had to have a middle name - so they gave him L." It should be noted though that on the 1910 census he is indexed as Glenn L. - this would have been prior to any military service.

    Notes 
    • These memories were received on September 11, 2010 from Glen's niece Beverly Atwood Blankenship: "I loved Uncle Glenn but he was harder to know. One of my best memories was when we went fishing, and I was afraid of fish. He always called me "Suzy." I caught a fish, and I asked him to take it off for me. He said OK, but if you do not hold this fish I am going to throw it back. So guess what? It went back in the water! His favorite phrase was "Suzy, you're cruising for a bruising!" After his divorce, he always had girl friends - but we never knew any of them. When he died a woman came to the family and asked if she could have something of his to remember him by."
