April 26, 1878 (Age 11 years)
Glen Haven, Grant, Wisconsin, United States
Latitude: N42.811111 Longitude: W91.008611

Shared note: The entry for Glenn Ryan in the Wisconsin Registrations of Births microfilm gives a date of birth of 26 Apr 1874. I believe that the actual date is 26 Apr 1878. The only year that 24 April doesn't conflict with other children's date of birth is 1878, and that is consistent with census and other records. It is, however, also possible that both the year and day were transcribed incorrectly.

Marriage

I don't know the exact location of Saint Johns Church within Patch Grove in the 1890s. The building at the current location of Saint Johns is too recent. It might be built on the location of a previous church, but I haven't yet verified that.
