I am looking for contact with those working on the Glenn surname in Rutheford, Williamson and nearby counties . I am looking for the parents of Martha Anna Fracnis "Puss' Glenn who married Isaiah Washington Dyer ( Dec.1836-May 1888) on 23 Jan 1860 . When she filed for her husbands confederate pension she gave her birth date as November 1844 and her birth place as Cheatham County , TN. The problem is that Cheatham County did not yet exist in 1844 or even 1850 and I find no record of her in the census records of the counites which formed it . In one census record she is listed as being born in NC but no record of her is found in census records of Cheatham County , NC . It is thought "perhaps" her father was named John and while I do find records of a John Glenn in Rutherford County there is no record connecting him to Martha or the Dyer family . It has been oral tradition that Martha was at least "part' american Indian . She was wed a year before the war broke out. She died in 1911 but nothing given as to parents . I am not sure what to do about her but need details . Thanks! Scott Bush
