Looking for my English ancestor John Glossop who was brought to the U.S. in the 1840s as a child. Later he fought in the Civil War (5th Calvary, 65th regiment - Williamsport, PA). After the war he settled in or around Nottawa, St. Joseph county, Michigan, where he is supposedly buried. He would be my great-great grandfather.

Thanks, Rich Glossop - Cincinnati, Ohio.

The John H. Glossop you are talking about is my great-grandfather. His son last living son, Clinton, is my grandfather. I have some contact with other Glossops who are doing research, or have done research on the Glossop family. I will share with you anything that I have.

Clinton came to California around 1920/1921. He was married twice: once to Ada Johnson and had two daughters, Loretta and Mildred. Then again in 1923 to Grace Carroll Brock, a widow with two children. They had six children: John H., Clinton B,. Veola Mae (my mom), Carroll Edward, Gerald Nelson, and Florine Ruth.

We are having a small Glossop get together on August 19th, in Ashland, Oregon.

Let me know if I can help you in your search.

I'm going to guess that by now you have learned a lot more about your John Glossop. As it happens, I have his 1845 UK Birth Certificate and a raft-load of other information regarding his family and predecessors in Sheffield, England and the US as well; Pennsylvania specifically.

If you're interested, let me know.
