William Glenn and Rosanna Aaron's children were , Samuel, Elizabeth, Catherine, Andrew, Arminda, and William M Glenn .The Glenn family were from Scotland , but our branch may have settled in Northern Ireland about 1600.

William Glenn and Rosanna Aaron

I have made extensive searches on William Glenn and this is what I have found. Two of William's children stated in the 1880 federal census that their father was born in Pa. Well I believe this is a mistake because he may have have been from Pittsyvania Co. Va. See how the children could have misunderstood. The reasons why I have come to this conclusion is----I was in Greenbrier Ar. and a man by the name of Hardin told me he was kin to the Glenn family, but didn't know how. Well this caused me to start checkin on people who are related to the Glenn family. I looked at people who lived by the Glenn's and by land sales. William Glenn first moved to South Carolina and bought land from Col Peter Perkins, then he moved to Franklin Co. Ga about 1790 and lived next to William Arnold. The Arnold and the Perkin families both came from the same area as Glenn family. They were also in Henrico Co. Va. I also believe William Glenn was kin to Jesse Joseph Glenn of Franklin co. Ga, just don't know the relationship. William Glenn's first child, Samuel Glenn, my gg grandfather, was first married to Elizabeth Catherine Bennett, and secondly to Julia {Allen} Fuqua. The former wife of Perry Fugua who was killed in the Civil War. The Fuqua family was from Henrico Co. Va too! Other researchers need to look at this information , and maybe they would find other facts on our Glenn family. Thanks much!
