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
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):
Isabel Clark b. 20 Nov 1820 Crawford co. Indiana d. 7 Aug 1881 Dewitt
co. Illinois m. 31 Dec 1839 Dewitt co. Ill. William Lee Fruit s/o Thomas
Clark & Elizabeth Thompson Fruit (brother of Enoch Alexander Fruit,
below) b. 15 Dec 1813 Christian co. Kentucky d. 16 Sept 1897 Cherryvale,
Montgomery co. Kansas. Both buried Rock Creek Cemetery, near Waynesville,
Illinois. Isabel's middle name of Clark (apparently she was named
after her great-aunt) was listed in the Dewitt County Death Register, Book
1, but it also listed her first name, mistakenly, as Elizabeth. 10
Letitia Jane b. 26 Sept 1823 Crawford
co. Ind. d. 30 July 1846 Dewitt co. Ill. m. 31 May 1841 Pike co.
Ill. James Andrew Scott (her cousin), s/o John II &
Mary Keith Scott, b. 2 Mar 1817 Jackson co. Tennessee d. 1872 Daviess
co. Mo. 3 children. Thomas Glenn forbade Letitia to marry James,
but they eloped to Pike county and were married; Letitia was disinherited
and the rest of her family was not allowed to see her. However, her
mother secretly stole out and visited her when she was ill and dying.
Anna Glenn said she felt that having 3 children so close together and Letitia's
longing to see her family could have hastened her early death.
Samuel Porter b. 6 Nov 1825 Sangamon co. Ill. d. 20 Aug 1904 Osceola,
Clarke co. Iowa m/1. 1 July 1847 Dewitt co. Ill. Frances Orleana

Baker's regiment, Co. E, 4th Illinois infantry. He also enlisted
17 July 1861 (another record says 28 May 1861) in the Civil War and raised
Company F, 6th Iowa Infantry; took part in the Battle of Shiloh (in
which his cousin Levi Scott was killed), and was a Captain. Samuel
was a founding member of the Osceola Christian Church in June, 1855.
