James R. (could stand for Riley) Glass . Information suggests he was born 1775 in Burke County, N.C., married Sarah (could be Sally) Lester, died 1837 in Caldwell County, KY. One of his children was a son named George Riley Glass. He was born 8/27/1824, died 5/20/1910, both occurrences in Caldwell County, KY. James R. Glass' father was Alexander Glass born about 1753 in Donegal, Ireland (wife's name Isabel). His father was James Glass born about 1730 in Donegal, Ireland, died 1806 in Armagh Township, Miflin, Pa (wife's name Jane Gallagher). Going farther back, it is likely that his father's name was David Glass born 1705 in Ireland, died 1770? in Virginia (wife unknown). His father's name was Thomas Glass born 1675 in Ireland, died 1734 in Virginia (wife's name Elizabeth). All information should be verified.

Ms. Campbell, Thank you for your post on Alexander Glass. His daughter, Elizabeth Jane Glass, is my ggggrandmother. I know next to nothing about her. Would you share your sources of information and any information so that I may share all of this with my 78 year old father. He will be thrilled. Thank you in advance. Karen

I wish I could be more definitive but I did a quick search for a question that has now been deleted. I can tell you Alexander and his wife are buried at Drucilla Independent Fundamental Cemetery Dysartsville, McDowell County,North Carolina. The son James shows up in Revolutionary war records here; http://revwarapps.org/s32272.pdf . Contact me at bwakefieldcampbell@ gmail. I may have pulled some information from various volumes I have lying about. There is a plantation in Caldwell, NC that I have seen since childhood; the old Glass Plantation. This is why I probably looked about for information.

Again, I thank you so much. This means so much to me? What are volumes? Are you referring to Revolutionary War material or genealogical volumes? Sorry, I am not familiar with much genealogical material. I paid someone to help me, but was taken and received no information. I will look up the information on the Glass Plantation. I am at kgyoungblood@yahoo.com. Thank you.
