Thomas Morrow & Anna C. Scott Glenn family

Anna Carolina Scott d/o John Wilson & Nancy Keith Scott b. 7 Dec 1796 Washington district, S. C. d. 7 Jun 1864 Osceola, Clarke co. Iowa  m. 20 Jan 1819 Crawford co. Ind. Thomas Morrow Glenn, s/o John & Jane Saline Glenn b. 7 May 1795 OR 6 May 1801 96 district, now Anderson co. S. C. d. 3 Jun 1874 Osceola, Clarke co. Iowa, both buried Maple Hill Cemetery, Osceola, Iowa.  Thomas' birth date may be incorrect (the first is the date on his tombstone) because, on their marriage certificate, it is stated that his parents gave consent for the marriage, implying he was in fact younger; also, in the 1840, he is listed as aged 30-40 while Anna is aged 40-50. Thomas was said to disapprove of the Scott family's tendency to marry first and second cousins, even disowning one of his daughters for doing just that.  I don't remember where I read that Anna's middle name was "Carolina"; I'm starting to think it might have been "Creighton".

After Anna Scott Glenn died, Thomas Glenn m/2. 9 Jan 1868 Clarke co. Iowa Elizabeth P. "Betsey" Anderson Hubbard b. 6 Jun 1801 or 1804 Christian co. Kentucky d. 11 Aug 1871 or 1874 Clarke co. Iowa.  She is buried in the Union Chapel cemetery, Fremont township, Clarke co. Iowa ("Elizabeth P. Glenn, wife of T., died 11 Aug 1871 aged 70y 2m 5d).  She had m/1. 8 Nov 1820 Centerville, Wayne co. IN Silas Hubbard b. 3 May 1802 Hamilton co. Ohio d. 13 Dec 1863 Big Mound, Cedar co. Iowa.  Union Chapel cemetery also is where Samuel P. Glenn (#3, below) and his first wife Frances are buried.

Thomas and Anna and their children (with the exception of Isabel, Letitia, and Nancy) moved to near Osceola, Clarke co. Iowa in 1853.  Thomas Glenn served as township supervisor for Green Bay township in 1861.  They had 11 children (note- in a history of the Scott family compiled by Thomas F. Scott many years ago, he lists only 3 children for Thomas and Anna- Isabel Fruit, Nancy, and "Gellglen"; I have no idea what that means):
