Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 313, Jackson Township, White County, Indiana.

"JOSEPH GLASGOW was born in Adams County, Ohio, March 6, 1832, but from the age of two was reared in Shelby County on a farm. He is the eldest son and second of nine children born to ARTHUR and ELIZA (McCULLAUGH) GLASGOW, natives of Adams County, and of Scotch and Irish extraction. About 1850, ARTHUR GLASGOW made an overland trip to California; remained there until June, 1852, and while on his way home was attacked by cholera, and died between the Isthmus of Panama and New York, aged forty-three. MRS. ELIZA GLASGOW died in Shelby County in 1870, aged fifty-eight years. From 1850, JOSEPH GLASGOW managed the home farm until November 2, 1859, when he was married to SARAH SOLLENBERGER, the youngest of the seven children born to DANIEL and ESTHER (WENGER) SOLLENBERGER, and born April 5, 1833. To this union there were born six children - JENNIE, LIZZIE, ALMA, JOHN F., JOSIE and WILLIAM W. The father of MRS. GLASGOW came to White County in the fall of 1869, and there died the following year, at the age of seventy-seven. His widow is yet living, at the age of eighty-three. In June, 1865, MR. GLASGOW came to this township, and purchased 120 acres of land on Section 19, and is now engaged in farming and stock-rearing. He is a public-sprited citizen, and was one of the first to get up a petition for the construction of a public ditch east of the river. MRS. GLASGOW is a member of the Protestant Methodist Church."
