Mr. Glenn Allen “Rusty” Smith, was born January 23, 1937 in Tiline to Gobel and Gertrude Smith. The 1937 flood was at its highest. The Smith’s lived in a two room house. Friends and family members left their homes around Tiline and stayed with the Smith’s until they could return home.
Glenn Allen was a farmer, he also worked at Air Products in Calvert City for twenty years. He was a member of Tiline Missionary Baptist Church.
Glenn Allen was an outdoorsman, loved the rivers, mountains, all animals, nature and the countryside. He had been a hunter, but after years he became a protector of the animals.
Daily, he wanted to go riding in the county countryside and enjoy the scenery and talk about his friends and the days of going to Oak Ridge School near Tiline. He was ready to point out a certain place and what happened there. One of the things he liked was remembering the fox hunters around Tiline.
