Caroline "Carrie" Glynn was the sister of my great-grandmother, Mary Lucy Glynn Giddens. Carrie was born in New York to Julia Harvey and Joseph AlbertGlynn.  In 1880, Carrie was living with her mother on Staten Island and her age was given as 5 years old. Her 14 year old sister, Lucy, was also living on Staten Island, but was living in a different household and working as a servant. In 1900, Carrie was a boarder in a home on Staten Island and her occupation was that of a wire worker.

Carrie married William Alter on August 18, 1904 on Staten Island. They had two children, William Gerard, who died young, and Anna Rita.

Carrie's husband died in 1918 and she worked to support her family. Carrie died in 1937. She is buried in St. Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx.
