Leon Glenn, a prominent farmer and businessman in this community for forty-two years, passed away at his home Friday night, following an illness of short duration. He had complained of feeling a little below normal for the past two weeks but his condition was not to be believed serious. He suffered what seemed to be an attack of acute indigestion Friday and passed away before help could be administered.

Leon Glenn, son of Thomas and Mary Glenn, was born in Henry County, Illinois, Sept. 7, 1876, and passed away at his home in Hamburg, Nov. 17, 1950 at the age of 74 years, 2 months and 10 days. He moved with his family to Gothenburg, Neb. in 1889 and to Cheyenne, Wyo. in 1902.

He was united in marriage to Miss Maud Thompson of Pine Bluffs, Wyo. on June 9, 1907, and to this union three children were born: William T. Glenn of Independence, Mo., Mrs. Harold Zach (Mary) of Rock Port, Mo. and James Glenn, who passed away in 1944.

Mr. and Mrs. Glenn moved to this community in 1908 and lived on a farm in the Island community then moving to a farm west of town in 1914. In the late twenties they moved to Hamburg, where his son William engaged in the implement business. At the same time he maintained his interest in farming, his chosen field.

Mr. Glenn was an honorable and highly respected citizen. He was a neighbor whose word was his bond, honest in all his dealings and fair in every detail. He took pride in his home, where his advice and council were sought by every member of his family. He was a member the Methodist church and maintained a keen interest in community life.

Survivors are his wife, his two children, seven grandchildren, four brothers: O.F. Glenn, Santa Marie, Calif.; L.R. Glenn, Henry, Neb.; T.W. Glenn, Lyman, Neb.; Jacob Glenn, Gothenburg, Neb.; two sisters, Mrs. Dora Sellars of Henry, Neb. and Mrs. Merle Lanning of Tulsa, Okla.; several nieces and nephews and many friends.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church Sunday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m., conducted by his pastor, the Rev. Cecil C. Latta. Burial was in the Hamburg cemetery.
