Isaac Gloyd (1801-1837)

Query by psimmon12

I am trying to identify the ancestors of Isaac Gloyd who was born in MA and died, in what was in 1837, Knox County, now Morrow County, Ohio. Isaac and his family may have lived in VT before relocating to Ohio. Isaac married Maria Bliss on 05 Feb 1824 in Kent, Ohio. Isaac had six children, five sons and one daughter. One son was Cassander Gloyd, who is my cousin and another son was William F Gloyd, who was president of the American Loan & Savings Association of Dayton, Ohio. Any guidance, comment, or direction you might have would be greatly appreciated.

On your Isaac. You might want to check the family of Amos Gloyd and Ruth Snow.
Amos was son of John Gloyd and Silence Bates Gloyd.
They were born in Abington Mass. Moved to Chittenden Co. Jericho, Vermont. Then I believe Amos moved to New York. I found in a Bliss record that your Maria Bliss and Isaac Gloyd married in New York I also find that Maria married (2) a Talman Chase in 1840 and that she died in Sparta, Ohio. I don't know if this will help or not but it's a lead.

Sorry, the Bliss Records state that Maria's father was from New York.
I looked in some of my books and don't find an Isaac Gloyd born in Abington Mass. But there is an Isaac Gloyd b. 1804 in Chittenden Co. Jericho Vermont to John Gloyd and Gillian. There is also an Isaac Gloyd b. 1808 Sparta, Morrow Co. Ohio.

From psimmon12:
How about the following scenario. Comments and corrections are appreciated.

My Isaac Gloyd (1801/04-1837)purchased, sold, and witnessed various land purchases in Marion County, Ohio between 1826 and 1833. Also appearing on deeds during that time period were the names: John Gloyd Jr, John Gloyd, Gillien LNU, and William Gloyd. The Gloyds were mixed and matched with each other on the individual deeds as both buyers and sellers, but always on the same side of the transaction. This land activity can reasonably lead to the conclusion that John Gloyd and Gillien LNU were husband and wife, confirmed by the entry in The Vermont Vital Records, see below, and that John Jr and Isaac were the sons of John and Gillien. And that William was a family member, but not necessarly a son of John and Gillien. I believe William was the son of Peter Gloyd and a nephew of John Gloyd (Sr). The birth and death dates along with residence locations further support this relationship conclusion.

John Gloyd (Sr) (1765-1833) was the son of John (Glyde) Gloyd (1736-1804) and Silence Bates.

John and Silence also had another son named Peter Gloyd (1736-1804). Peter and his wife Mary Ann Crosley had a son named William. (I believe that the William of deed fame and Peter and Mary Ann's William are one in the same.)

William (spouse unknown) had a son Isaac Newton Gloyd. This Isaac Newton Gloyd is the Isaac that smattevi mentions in her comment above.

It appears that the ancestors of John (Glyde) Gloyd are well established from materials (both genealogy databases and other written materials I have reviewed.

There appears to be an open issue as to Isaac Gloyd's birth place and year. His headstone located in Bloomfield Cemetery in South Bloomfield Township, Morrow County, Ohio (just south of Sparta) has the following inscription "Gloyd, I., 1801 - 1837". The difference between the 1804 record entry and the headstone showing 1801 could be carving or transcription error. Isaac's birth record in Vermont Vital Records states that he was born in Jericho Township, Vermont on 17 Mar 1804. I favor the Vermont record as the accurate rendition.

Your comments are requested.

On Isaac, the only thing I can say is that all of John Gloyd's son's (they ones I know of) went to Chittenden Co., Jericho, Vermont in or around the 1790's. John, Jesse, and Amos. I believe Jesse is the only one that stayed until his death. But I do believe he died in Milton, but is buried in the Jerich Center Cemetery as I have pics. I have been to Jericho and it is wonderful.

I also wanted to ask you where you found your info on John Gloyd and Silence Bates having a son named Peter, and if you have any docs. on that? I know that they had a nephew named Peter but have not found anything on a son. Maybe I have not seen all the materials on John Gloyd's family. Maybe you could send me a list of docs. and or websites or books related to this family.?

I also wanted to know about your William Gloyd son of Peter Gloyd and Mary Ann Crosley. I have in my line a William Gloyd who married a Mary Ann Crosley. William and Mary Ann had a son named Isaac, along with 5 other children. Where did you find Peter Gloyd and Mary Ann's marriage records? Do you have any other siblings for William Gloyd son of Peter Gloyd?

You also might want to check out John Gloyd wife Gillin from Jericho, Vermont. They had a son named Isaac b.1804 and I believe that the family moved to Ohio. Maybe somewhere close to Marion, Ohio.

I don’t know if this will help. But I believe your Isaac Gloy is th younger brother to my Great Great Great Great Grandmother on my Grandmother father side.
She was born Corney Glody 1802 but changed the spelling of her name to Cornelia Gloyd McCloud. She married Wallace McCloud in Ohio.
While I was searching her I came across the birth record of Isaac Gloyd son of John and Gillin Gloyd.
Hope it helps.
Below is the link to it
Also thank you to the person who had the dates for John makes it easier for me.
If I find anything else I add it here
