Vinera Eglantine Powers Glover has been one of the hardest ancestors to research. The census records during Vinera's life only listed the head of the household.  The three censuses I have cited are for Vinera's husband, Samuel Stillman Glover.  I included church records where Vinera Glover was listed by name to help place Vinera in a certain place at a certain time.

I do not have primary sources for her birth and death dates.  That is why I put the circa there.  I believe I will have to rely on church records for this information.  First, I need to determine where she was born.

I have seen Vinera's name as Venera, Veneria Englantine and Veronica in my research.  I have often wondered if there was any significance to her middle name "Eglantine" as it is an unusual name.
