13 August 1950 — Yongpo, Korea
Glen Wood TATEM was named originally "Caryle Glenwood TATEM" by his parents. He didn't care for the name and had it changed to Glen Wood TATEM. Glen Wood TATEM was killed in Yongpo, Korea, on 13 August, 1950. The United States actually lost the ground where Glen's rifle platoon was killed. It took over 10 months for the United States to recover the site where Glen's rifle platoon was ambushed and killed. Mary (Day) TATEM, wife of John Harrison TATEM, and mother of Caryle Glenwood TATEM, wanted an open casket the day of the funeral on 4 August, 1951, as well as have him buried in Garrard County, Kentucky. Norma Rose did not agree and wanted a closed casket funeral service and have Glen buried in Columbus, Indiana. This caused problems and upset the TATEMS. Then, to even further stress the situation, Paul Harold VOELZ married Norma Rose (Davis) TATEM on 5 February, 1952, and adopted both TATEM children. John and Mary TATEM told them that would be the end of the TATEM name if he did that. Paul decided that he was going to have other children with Norma Rose and that he wanted them all to have the same surname. This pretty much split the TATEM/ VOELZ family lines.
