Who is Frank Henry Glover, Jr.?

This is the first document I found when I was researching my grandfather. I was so happy, I had his name and birth date, or so I thought. I continued to research my grandfather and found out there were a couple of errors on this record. The birth record from Jackson County, Michigan states a Harry Glover was born to Frank H. Glover and Hattie L. Glover on 6 May 1883. So I ask, why did my grandfather use the name Frank Henry Jr? Was the error in the birthdate his or the recorders? Other information on the card confirms this is indeed my grandfather, Harry Glover. It's too bad I never knew him. I can only get to know him through my dad and my research into his past.


  1. I'm curious to find out about your Glovers. Are they by any chance from Massachusetts? I'm tracing my Glovers from Marblehead, Massachusetts and running into lots of riddles and puzzles.

  2. Heather, I sent you an email with more details. The Glover's in my lineage are from Milton, Massachusetts and Conway, Massachusetts. I have come across a General John Glover from Marblehead in my research. No relation that I have found of my Glover's. Is he in your lineage?
