Maybe we finally have a "break-thru" on the parentage of James D. GLENN.
William GLENN b. ca 1819 KY who married Nancy E. (MNU) and had son Whitehill GLENN was the brother of our James D. GLENN.
James D. GLENN b. [not sure, but wife was born 1820], d. Oct 3-Dec 25 1854, Paris, Lamar, TX m. Ruth Ann (MNU). Children: (1) William H. GLENN b. ca 1840 MO (2) Mary Jane GLENN b. ca 1842 MO - d. 1864 TX or MO (3) John McKenzie GLENN b. 1847 Paris, Lamar, TX m. Keziah 'Kettie' USSERY29 Nov 1876 Cooke Co, TX John & Keziah are living in Cooke Co 1880 & 1900 Census. (4) James Monroe GLENN b. 13 Sep 1850 Paris, Lamar, TX - d. 16 Aug 1907 Winters, Runnels Co, TXm.Elvira SMITH 6 Jan 1874 Cooke Co., TX. (5) Charles Thomas GLENN b. 1851 Paris, Lamar, TX (6) Missouri 'Zoe' GLENN b. 19 Mar 1853 Paris, Lamar, TX d. 8 Jan 1942 Enid, OK - bur Nocona, Montague, TX m.

Ruth Ann () GLENN m. Joseph G. THOM in 1856 and they had one child who survived, William W. THOM b. 1860. Ruth died 23 Sept 1862.
After the death of James D. GLENN & Ruth, William GLENN (b. ca 1819 & bro of James D.) was appointed guardian for Charles T. GLENN & Missouri GLENN.James GRAHAM was named guardian for John McKenzie GLENN & James Monroe GLENN. William H. GLENN was over 21 & living in CA and Mary Jane GLENN was deceased.
William GLENN (b. 1819) was living in Cass Co MO in 1868. William was in Tarrant Co. 1880.
1870 Census Montgomery Co MO - Is there a Charles Glenn & Missouri Glenn also living in the hhold?
Can't find James D. & William listed on 1850 Census for TX, but they should be here. They both bought land in Lamar Co prior to 1850 & afterwards.
Also in Lamar Co TX in 1850 was James Baker GLENN b. 1814 TN who m. Elizabeth Elliott 7 Feb 1837 Clinton Co MO & his brother Silas GLENN b. 1811 KY who m. Mourning BURNHAM. Info I have is James Baker GLENN & wife Elizabeth both died in Paris, Lamar Co and about 1858 Silas GLENN family removed to CA.
Do believe that Silas & James Baker GLENN were cousins of James D. GLENN & William GLENN.
Do you have info on where Whitehill GLENN who married Sally COX died? Has a will be located?
James Monroe GLENN is our great grandfather.
We are enthused with this info. Hope to hear from you soon,
