Re: Donoho and Stanley

The gg grandfather was John Wilson Glenn. His brothers, Archibald, David Chalmers and James Chalmers Glenn also lived in the area. I believe they originally moved to Mississippi when they were fairly young, with their uncle, Joseph William Chalmers (JWC). They lived in the Holly Springs area (JWC is buried there). He was named their guardian in the early 1830's, after their mother (JWC's sister) died (their father was still living, but I think disabled in some way; a little mystery to clear up).

By 1860 or so (actually, earlier) Archibald and John Wilson lived in New Orleans, where they had a tobacco business (and JWG also was a physician). Some of the Chalmers family also lived in Louisiana. David Chalmers Glenn stayed in Mississippi, in Hinds County, however, so perhaps that is part of the connection. He was a widower in 1860, and died about 1869, if I remember correctly. I have wondered what happened to his children, frankly; they should appear in the 1870 census, but I haven't found them there.

It sems pretty clear that there was a lasting relationship between the Donoho's and Glenn's; they intermarried, and as I mentioned JWG and an unidentified Donoho are mentioned together in some records at UNC.

James Chlamers Glenn died about 1853; I wil look at his esatte papers again sometime, on microfilm. It strikes me that a Donoho made a statement to the court. What if Stanley is in there too? They needed witnesses who knew the family in North Carolina who could testify that by then both parents were dead.
