Gladys was born in 1893. She passed away in 1987.
We have her written brief bio, plus we have the writeup from the Holcomb book of the '60s which was the source for the photos.
See her grandmother, Chloe (Porter) Jackson for some details of her lineage.

Phylura arranged for Gladys to be adopted by a couple that she knew. Gladys (I have a copy of the letter to her daughter) remembered the winter day.
Their name, Defibaugh. She is in the U.S. Census with them.
Gladys was quite successful and well traveled.
Gladys married Stanley D. Long in 1913. He was a druggist and well known.
When he died, she married Earl S. Murray.
Her daughter lives in Fort Worth, TX.
