Kay,
It appears you have much more information than I have but as I said, I have just started. I would love to have any information you are willing to share. You can email me direct at shinckle@bellsouth.net if you like. Is the ged.com you have something I have to download a specific program for? If so that is not a problem I am just not really familiar with this process yet.
Most of my Glidewell family is buried in the cemetary at Big Springs in TN. In that cemetary are also many Kings. Each year the Sunday before Memorial Day we have a Glidewell reunion there at the church by the cemetary. The Kings also meet there but for some reason they stay to one side and the Glidewells stay to the other except for a few older ones that visit between the groups. I never understood why but that is the way it seems to have always been. The way I was told was that my great grandfather Robert Glidewell married to Eliza Jane King donated the land for the cemetary and the church many years ago. And I know that they are the first ones you come to as you enter the gate of the cemetary. I am thinking of going up there in a couple of weeks to look through the cemetary and see what information I can get from there. Also I am going to try to see what else I can search there. I know here in MS where I live we have a genealogy library in most counties but I have never seen one of those up there.
I will admit I was kind of dreading all of this work everyone told me this family tree would be but since I have started and so quickly found a couple of people working on the same line. I am so anxious to see what information you have. I have some information from Judy Wright in the papers my aunt sent me but the email I tried to send her came back undeliverable.
