Glenn Dee & Verdie Jane Devey Terry

This is another family who appear on the 1930 census but nowhere else although they were local people. Glenn was born May 13, 1897, in St. George, Utah to William Alanson and Martha Ann Hunt Terry. In 1900 and 1910 he lived in White Pine County, Nevada.

He married Verdie December 20, 1917, and in 1918 when he registered for the draft he was living in Alpine and self-employed. They also lived in Alpine in 1920, 1935 and 1940. Verdie was born January 1, 1899, in Alpine to William Henry and Mary Jane Healey Devey. Glenn and Verdie had three children: LaDean, Leda, and Gladys. Leda died at age six and LaDean doesn't show up anywhere until the 1930 census.

Glenn died April 11, 1945, in Bingham Canyon, Verdie died August 8, 1979, in American Fork and they are buried in the Alpine City Cemetery.
