About Glenn Ford McKinney tion/special-collections/webster/webster_bio.html[FOX3.GED]

For seven years Jean Webster was secretly engaged to Glenn Ford McKinney, a wealthy lawyer and son of the oil magnate John Luke McKinney. Glenn, married to another woman who was plagued by bouts of insanity and weighed down by personal problems himself, couldn't help but submit to Jean's sunny disposition and charm. He finally obtained a divorce in June of 1915, and he and Jean were married among a flurry of activity on September 7, about the same time that "Daddy Long-Legs" was touring and its sequel, Dear Enemy, was published. The McKinneys made their home at Tymor Farm, in Union Vale, Dutchess County, NY, a sanctuary of fields, deer, wild ducks, and pheasants.

On the evening of June 10, 1916, the inseparable Ethelyn

McKinney and Lena Weinstein accompanied Jean to Sloane Hospital in New York City for the delivery of her baby girl, Jean Webster McKinney. The next morning, June 11, Jean Webster died of complications from childbirth.
