Although five Glover brothers migrated from southern Maryland to Fauquier before the Revolution, served in the Revolution, and migrated to the Deep South by 1779, a number of other â€œtroublesomeâ€ Glovers appear in some of the Fauquier records. Those Maryland brothersâ€™ birth dates and birthplaces were:
John, about 1745, Prince Georgeâ€™s County
James, between 1745-1750, unknown county
Benjamin, June17, 1753, Anne Arundel County
Richard, 1756, St. Mary's County
William, 1760, Prince George's County
[In 1809 and 1810, â€œmyâ€ Richard Glover, who migrated to the Shenandoah Valley, Hardy County WV, and finally to Licking County OH, seems clearly to be in Fauquier County VA, suggesting an earlier family contact in the area. Those other five Glovers had already migrated by 1779, and their descendents claim no relationship at this time to this Richard. DNA tests, now being performed, may clear this up, one way or the other.]
Fauquier County records have these:
1777 Benjamin Glover, Richard Glover, John Glover, James Glover. (James and John appear to be living together.) Source: Fauquier County Tithables. These must be the ones who later migrated to the Deep South. The fifth brother, perhaps not tithable, was apparently a William.
1778 John Glover on Taxable Property List for Fauquier.
1779, August 25: Mary Glover, a defendant, and Richard Glover, her security, who pays her debt? Virginia County Court Records, Fauquier County, Minute Book, 1779-1782, The Antient Press, McLean, Virginia, 1997
1781 Thomas Glover on Taxable Property List for Fauquier. (Here is the â€œclinkerâ€? Who is this Thomas? Another brother? A father? Note a Thomas in Fairfax below, along with several other Glovers.)
1782 Thomas Glover on Taxable Property List for Fauquier
[1782 John Metcalf married a Milly Shackleford, but they migrated to Kentucky and are apparently accounted for. However, in 1795 a Milly Shackleford married â€œourâ€ Shenandoah/Hardy/Licking Richard Glover in Culpeper. Are these Millyâ€™s related?]
1783 Thomas Glover on Taxable Property List for Fauquier
1785, December 18. In Alexandria, a Thomas Glover fails to pick up a letter, reported in the Alexandria Gazette, p. 3.
1786 Thomas Glover on Taxable Property List for Fauquier
1786, September 25: Thomas Glover appears in court, â€œdischarged of paying taxes.â€ Virginia County Court Records, Fauquier County, Minute Book, 1786-1787, The Antient Press, McLean, Virginia, 1997.
1787, February 27: Elizabeth Glover, apparently a levy on her for the poor of District 5 of 500 (something or other, probably not pounds or dollars). Virginia County Court Records, Fauquier County, Minute Book, 1786-1788, The Antient Press, McLean, Virginia, 1997, pp.132-133
1793, January 14: A Benjamin Glover was bondsman in Fauquier for the marriage of Daniel Shackelford to Amnah Harden. See: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/message/an/surnames.shacke
At the time, a Benjamin O. (?) Glover, 2 and 1 black and 3 horses, was living in Culpeper.
In 1793, 1794, 1796, 1797, 1799, 1800, 1803, 1806, 1807, thereâ€™s a Thomas Glover in Fairfax, along with a Benjamin, Richard, and John, but not necessarily all listed in the same year. No Glovers in Fairfax after that 1807. They apparently migrated to Culpeper for about ten years, or up until the War of 1812.
