    1. I think it was Sylvester that recorded some of the Glover family history. We would be related through Tazwell.

    2. Sylvester Myers is my ggrandfather via son Thurman. How are you related. Do you know any Myers history before Tazwell beyond speculation?

    3. It looks like Sylvester's dad (Nelson) married Susannah Glover, sister to the husband (Isaac Glover) of Nelson's sister (and Sylvester's aunt) Mary Catherine Myers -my great great grandparents. It would appear that YOUR great grandfather Sylvester Myers and MY great grandfather Thomas Jackson Glover were first cousins. Thurman would have been about five years older than my grandfather, Ira Russell Glover. Small world, cousin! As you noted, there is a lot of guesswork prior to Tazwell's generation as suggested by the work done by Sylvester and in another book by Thos. Condit Miller:

  2. My Name is Steve Talkington

    William T Morgan was my 2x's great grandfather. His father Jacob I believe was executed by firing squad for desertion. I have Morgans and Swigers all through my family tree and my grandmother used to tell stories about Williams farm. I have some of the photos on your site as well. Neat to see this stuff.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    1. Thank you, Steve! I am familiar with the Talkington name woven throughout the Morgan-Bates/Swiger family lines and delighted to hear from you! I'd love to know more about our family connections and any info we can exchange. (Levada Morgan was my grandmother.) Please feel free to contact me at gloversmith1@gmail.com
