The following additional information was provided by Joy Russell:

Glenn was born December 1912 in Colorado and died on June 26, 1914, at Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas.

Glenn was the son of Theodore F. Dempwolf and his first wife, Mamie BLOOMGREEN (md. 22 February 1912 in Denver, Colorado). After their divorce in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1914, Theodore Dempwolf kidnapped his son, Glenn, and came to Arkansas to hide out from his wife. While they were here Glenn died on June 26, 1914, according to the testimony given in Theodore's kidnapping trial. Theodore was convicted in May 1915 and sent to the New Mexico State Penitentiary to serve 3-5 years for the kidnapping. Governor McDonald issued a pardon to Theodore Dempwolf in August 1916 after he served just over one year of his sentence. The Albuquerque Journal has over 25 articles about their divorce, the kidnapping, trial and the sentencing to prison.
