Gravestone of Nancy Jane Kishler Glover 1837-1920

Normally, I wouldn't research four times removed cousins, but on a trip to Highland Cemetery, Ypsilanti, Michigan there were numerous Glover's buried there and I took pictures of them all. Once I got home, I tried to place the names on the gravestones within my family tree.

One gravestone was for Nancy J. Glover. Nancy was the wife of Henry Pierce Strong Glover, my first cousin four times removed. Nancy was born Nancy Jane Kishler. Henry's grandfather was Alexander Glover, my fourth great grandfather.

Highland Cemetery is a beautiful cemetery, and their office staff is exceptional. I stopped at the office to ask where the Glover plot was. Not only did the office worker show me on the map, but she also copied sexton cards for me. This must be the most friendly, helpful, cemetery office I have ever been to.
