My Great Great Grandfather was born February 14, 1874 in Glover's Gap, West Virginia. He married Myrtle Yost on January 14, 1899 in Mannington, West Virginia. I am looking for any information on his parents. I don't know their names at this time. Thanks.

What I have found but not sure yet. Francis Glover's father might be a Willaim Glover who married Rebecca Anderson in Wetzel, West Virginia in 1854. My grandmother said she thought there was a Anderson in the family. My Great Grandmother was Glades Glover of Mannington, West Virginia. Daughter of Francis Glover.

I just got finished (?) working on my own Glover connections in this area and have the following from the 1910 US Census, West Virginia, Marion County, Mannington District, Enumeration District 68, Sheet 14B. (Ancestry.com Images online, Image 28 of 46):

Glover, Frank | head | M | W | 36 | Married once | 12y | b. WV | Repair hand | Trolley tracks.

---------, Myrtle | Wife | F | W | 34 | Married once | 12y | b. WV
---------, Guy | Son | M | W | 11
---------, Grace | Daughter | F | W | 9
---------, Gladys | Daughter | F | W | 8
---------, Gay | Daugher | F | W | 6
---------, Garnet | Daughter | F | 4
---------, Anna | Daughter | F | 2
Youst, Brice | Father-In-Law | M | W | 66 | Widower | b. WV | Labor | Odd Jobs
----------, Archie | Brother-In-Law | M | W | 25 | Single | b. WV | Labor | Odd Jobs

From another source I can add the following:
Frank is Francis Marion.
Myrtle Is Lillie Mytrle Yost (or Youst)
Guy is Everett Guy.
Grace is Grace May.
Gladys is Gladys Irene
Garnet is Garnet Freedom
Anna is Anna Gwendolyn
another child Daniel

I hope this helps you. My grandmother, Mary Catherine was second cousin to Francis Glover.

I have more information on the ancestors in this line.

I'm also from this line (I was born and raised in Marion Co., WV). Francis Marion GLOVER would have been my 3rd cousin 3X removed. I have this line back to the 1740's (John GLOVER and Anna ?). I descended from John's son Thomas:
John GLOVER 1735/40 - 1782 m Ann ?
Thomas GLOVER m Elizabeth ?
John C. GLOVER, Sr. m Mary "Polly" MARTIN
David GLOVER m Deborah MARTIN
Elva Helen GLOVER (my great grandmother) m Wm. Elza FORD

Hello, I too am researching Glover. My great aunt married Worley Franklin Glover. He was born 19 September 1892 and died 6 August 1976.

He was married once before he married my aunt.

Worley's parents are John Glover and Margaret Fearer.

Worley was a retired farmer when he died and he was a member of the Church of the Brethren.

He married my aunt Hazel Ellen Uphold, daughter of Dora Mae Benson and Allen L. Uphold. She was born 13 June 1903 and died in 1997.

They had 4 daughters, 5 sons, and 2 foster sons at the time of death.

If any of this information sounds familiar or if he is in your GLOVER family, please contact me by email at jobless76@hotmail.com

Thank you in advance,
Christina

PS.. I have a picture of their tombstone, and one of their sons and 3 of their grandchildrens tombstones also.

I just came across your post of 2002. I might be able to answer your question about Myrtle Youst. My Mom Roberta Snyder was born in Glover's Gap and I was just looking around to see what I could find out and I came across your post. Let me get my papers tonight and see what I can do.
We could be related somehow....The place is not to big huh?
