You only mention the Glass search, do you already have James R, his siblings, parents and grandfather just two pages away on the same census?

I suggest you visit the Bosque Co, TX GenWeb site. I just took a quick look and found someone working on the above Wm Glass and wife Mary Jane LaFon. She has Wm on the 1860 census. Wm & MJ are buried in the Glass cemetery, and it looks like there is a female M.LaFon buried there, old enough to be mother of Mary Jane. I think you'll find lots of good stuff on the site.

They also have a list of volunteers who will do specific lookups.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
