Thanks for your message. How interesting that you were able to interview Mrs. McElroy! While her famous grandfather had died 25 years before she was born, she must have heard some wonderful stories about him from her grandmother and her aunts. (BTW, if you would like to add her first husband's name to the Family Links section of her memorial page, Col. Glasgow's is #115497875.)
Re: my suggested corrections/family links Carlina's first husband, Col. William J. Glasgow, USMA Class of 1927, was the scion of an old and distinguished Texas family. According to a West Point classmate, he had become smitten with Carlina Sheridan while she was still a teenager, but being 9 years her senior, had to wait to make her his bride, which he did on August 10, 1940. Their daughter Isabel was born at West Point the following year, just 4 days before the attack on Pearl Harbor. He served with great distinction as a staff officer during WWII, and was decorated by the French, Italian, and British governments. He died at 42 while on post-war duty in Japan, the victim of a heart attack. He was subsequently buried in El Paso, TX, the city founded by his great-grandfather. (Also, the "o" in Mrs. McElroy's first name appears to be a typo; her name was Carlina.)
