Welcome

to Journey to the Past, I'm Brenda (Glover) Leyndyke and I believe researching your family history is a fascinating journey.

Where in the World is Alexander Glover (1756-1826)?

23 August 2016

Researching before the first United States Federal Census in 1790 finds researchers using other records that place our ancestors in a specific locale.  This is where one must search for land records, military records, jury lists, and other records.  I have been compiling my "Where in the World" series for awhile now.  Currently, I am to the point where I need to add records besides census ones.  The table below is for my fourth great grandfather, Alexander Glover, who married Sarah Salisbury.

Family Search has an indexed record with the marriage in Feb 1780; it says Conway, Franklin, Massachusetts; it was formed from the northern third of Hampshire County in 1811.
