Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea
And the hunter from the hill.*
T. M. Glover

  1. I descend from John - Nehemiah - William - Isaac - Isaac's daughter Nancy Jane Glover that married John Wesley Scott. My name is Tammy Henderson and my grandma's name was Iva Belle Scott.

  2. Nice to hear from a "cousin"! Let me know if I can help with your Glover genealogy.

  3. hello im a glover from leeds westyorksire england been doing my family tree trying to trace how we are related to glovers in america but hit a brick wall would be good to know if related to amricans xx

  4. I've also been looking through the branches of our Glover family tree for years with little info prior to their emigration to America. In fact, there are different, but possibly related, Glover families on both my mother and father's sides. If you use the "search" tool on my main page, you can read more about what I've discovered. Who knows? We might be cousins! (You may know better than me, but since "Glover" was a trade, it may have been a common name throughout England.)
