Louise Glaum was born Sep 04, 1888 in or around Washington DC or at her father's farm in Prince George County, Maryland. Her birth date is reported erroneously in most articles. I imagine it was an attempt to hold on to the ingénue rolls as long as possible or perhaps just inaccuracy on the part of the studio or author of the various articles. She is pictured below seated on her father's (Johann Wilhelm Glaum) lap. Johann is pictured with his wife (Lena Kuhn Glaum) and the three older daughters who survived into adulthood. Standing behind Johann's family is Johann's older sister Katherina Elizabeth Glaum. She is the "Lizzie" who sent the telegram to my Great Grandfather about their arrival for the Columbian Exposition and wrote the letter to family in Ebersgöns that proved the key clue to the origin of my Glaum family tree branch.
