UPDATE - Glenna has been claimed and is going home.
This photo was acquired today at the Antique Show at the Palm Beach County Fair Grounds. It appears to have been taken 1908-1912, and is probably around 20 years old at the time of this photo. The studio mark says "R.L. Young, St Stephens, N.B." The back has a hand-written note "Glenna J. Little now Crouse"

Using, I was able to find Glenna Jean Little on the following census form:

1891 census of Canada, New Brunswick, Charlotte, St. Croix.
LITTLE, Hosea, 46, born in NB of Irish father and NB mother, farmer
LITTLE, Phoebe J. 45, born in NB of American father and NB mother
LITTLE, Elizabeth, 20, daughter, dressmaker
LITTLE, William, 19, son, farmer
LITTLE, Annie R., 16, daughter
LITTLE, Theodore, 14, son
LITTLE, Percy, 12, son
LITTLE, Rose, 10, daughter
LITTLE, George, 8, son
LITTLE, Alphus, 6, son
LITTLE, Linton, 4, son
LITTLE, Loyd, 2, son
LITTLE, Glenna, 10m, daughter

The 1901 Census shows that the 6 eldest children are no longer in the household.

The 1911 Census shows that only Linton (age 24) and Glenna (age 20) remain at home.

Her father died in 1913.

At the age of 27, in September 1917, Glenna married Sylvester Patrick Crouse, two years her junior.
She and Sylvester appear on the 1930 US Census, Vermont, Essex, Brighton. His occupation is locomotive engineer.

I cannot find any evidence of Glenna and Sylvester having children, or when and where she died.
