Tombstone Tuesday – December 5, 2017 – Glenn E Goshorn


Glenn Estel Goshorn was born on June 30, 1912 in Antwerp, Ohio the son of Clyde and Ada (Crawford) Goshorn. Glenn married Beryl F Wilson on March 4, 1933, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. They had two children; Beryl Stella (1933) and James W(1935). By the 1940 Federal Census, Glenn and Beryl are divorced and she is living with the two children with her mother, Abbie Wilson.

In the 1939 Fort Wayne Directory, I find Glenn E. Goshorn and Melba (Jackson) Goshorn listed. Glenn’s occupation is listed as Insurance Agent in 1939 and Melba is a housewife. There is a birth record for June 25, 1937, for Glenn and Melba’s first daughter Sandra Lee Goshorn. They had four daughters; Sandra(1937), Barbara, Catherine, Cynthia.

In the 1942 Fort Wayne directory, Glenn lists his occupation as a lathe operator for General Electric. From the remaining directories that I find, it appears that he was a factory worker for the remainder of his career.

Melba died on June 10, 1981. Glenn married Evelyn Zella Northrup on January 31, 1987.

Glenn E Goshorn died twenty years ago today at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on December 5, 1997. It states on the death certificate that he was widowed. Evelyn must have died. Glenn Goshorn-DeathCertGlenn is buried in Covington Memorial Gardens in Fort Wayne, Indiana with Melba. Covington

Rest in Peace, Glenn


Love, Jan
