The name of the father is William I Watson however his wife was Ella May Johnson not Radford. They had 8 children Bertha, Glen, Ethel, Everett Byron, Myrtle, Jefferson and Marie. In William's obit he remarried Anna Jacobson. Sometime after the 1915 census they seperated. the children were sent to the Ogdensburg orphanage abt. 1916. I found a letter written by Everett he was looking to find his brothers and sisters. He found all but Byron and Glen.
1920 census Iowa lists Byron Watson age 7 living with Ray tight as a foster son.
1925 census Iowa lists Glen Watson age 19 living with James Brooks as an orphan.
That is the last information I have on Glen and Byron. I have much more info if you are interested.
