Glenn Russell HANDY. [Family Tree].
Glenn Russell HANDY was born on 18 January 1912 at Belvedere, Los Angeles County, California; son of William Joseph HANDY and Birdie Alice Pearl HENTZE. Belvedere lies just across the Los Angeles River, east of the city of Los Angeles. His parents had come to California less than two years before his birth in order to live near his mother's family. Birdie's sisters and their families lived in the area.
During the early part of his life, he was known as Russell Glenn Handy. Therefore, many of his friends and acquaintances from the early part of his life called him Russell. Later in life he was known as Glenn Russell Handy, and friends from later in life knew him as Glenn.
By the time Glenn was five years old his family had moved back to Oklahoma. His father moved his family to a farm in the rich bottomland near Tulsa, Oklahoma. His father would watch for new areas that the government was opening up for settlement. He would travel there, select the best piece of land he could find, stake claim to it by registering with the nearest land office, and then move his family to the land to begin developing it.
Glenn was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 28 December 1930 in Compton, California.
