Re: JOHN GLASFORD (b: 1708 Scotland - ~1780 )
I posted a reply to your query of Dec/05 and then noticed that you prefered people to write to you directly.Here is the information I have uncovered about William Lytle Glassford.I hope that this is of some use to you.My interest, as you can see from the posting, is in Lucinda Sherwood and if she could be related to Ebenezer Sherwood. Barbara p.s.For some reason my email insists that I have everything centred! so the spacing is off.

I may have some information which could be of use to you. It concerns William Lytle Glassford who died in 1853, aged 49 Yrs. His second name comes from daughter Mary's death certificate. He is named on both daughters' marriage certificates and his son's death certificate which also gives his place of birth as Augusta Twp. In the 1848 census of Augusta, William lived on lot 7, concession 4 with 9 people in the family. He was a carpenter.
Tombstone: Wm. L. Glasford died Mar. 12, 1853 aged 49 years [Maynard Cemetery, plot 31, old section, p. 2]
He married Lucinda Sherwood: Could Lucinda Sherwood be a daughter of Ebenezer Sherwood? She is named as "Sherwood" on both daughters' marriage certificates and her son's death certificate which also gives her birth place as Augusta and marriage to William Glassford.
Tombstone: Lucinda, wife of Wm. Glasford, departed this life April 21, 1848 aged 40 years & 6 mos. [Maynard Cemetery, plot 30, p. 2, old section]
Children as proven by marriage and death certificates:
Alzina Glassford b. 1829 Augusta Twp. and d. 1916 Augusta; married 1) James Mullen and 2) Robert Brown. She was a weaver. Buried Maynard Cemetery
Mary Glassford b. 1839 Augusta Twp. and d. 1911 Brockville; married John Duncan Bell
William James Glassford b. 1845 Augusta and d. 1928 Prescott; married Martha Sawdon; he was a riverboat Captain; buried Maynard Cemetery.
Hope this is of some help to you.
Dear Barbara: 29 June 2006
Yes, this information is very helpful to me.This is one of the collateral lines of mine, all of whom were sired by JOHN GLASSFORD, U.E.L..My research indicates that LUCINDA SHERWOOD, the spouse of this WILLIAM LYTLE GLASSFORD was, in fact, the daughter of Captain Ebenezer Sherwood.The rest of the data tracks what I have learned on my line, which goes from me, JOHN SCOTT HOFF (1946 – now) , to my father, JOHN RICHARD HOFF (1909-1970), to his mother, MABEL MINA TENNANT (1875-1963), to her mother, SARAH GLASSFORD TENNANT, to her parents, GEORGE GLASSFORD and JEMINA (aka ”MINNIE”/”MINA”/MARY) CAMERON (The daughter of Major HUGH CAMERON, U.E.L..
So, I am happy to have your data, as it serves to further support my nexus to the GLASSFORD (with just one “s”) line of early Ontario.
Thank you for taking the time to write me.
Very truly yours,
