Grave of Former Mayor of Ypsilanti Henry P. S. Glover




Ypsilanti Mayor, Henry P.S. Glover, is buried in Highland Cemetery, Ypsilanti, Michigan in Block 100, Lot 20, Grave No. 6.

One article of particular interest is a short biography of Henry P.S. Glover.  Henry Pierce Strong Glover was born to Charles Williamson Glover and Mary Ann (Powers) Glover in Webster County, New York on 3 March 1837.  He married Nancy Jane Kishler, 17 Apr 1860.  Mayor Glover died 21 Feb 1912, in Ypsilanti.  The article tells when he came to the Ypsilanti area, where he lived, and businesses he owned.  Mayor Glover was described by the Ypsilanti Gleanings as, "Surely one of Ypsilanti's most distinguished citizens." I would agree.

Henry P.S. Glover is the son of my third great grand uncle, Charles Williamson Glover.
