Per the following Court Record, Henry Glass md. Elizabeth LNU, who died in 1814. They had children Thomas, Mary, & Eleanor who md. James Robinson, d. per online FTs abt 1817, although I think he died earlier. Eleanor, age 70, is enumerated, alone, in Stafford Co, VA, in 1850, and in 1840 w/1 white female 20-29 and 1 white female 40-49. James Robinson,bet,20-29, possibly Eleanor's son, is enumerated 10 lines above Eleanor,in 1840 w/1 white female 30-39, 1 white female <5, and 2 white males, 5-9. I'm looking for the birth name of Henry's wife Elizabeth, and for confirmation that Eleanor's husband James is a son of Michael Robinson and Mary James. I believe the Deponent Michael Robinson named in the record below is Michael,b. abt 1789,also a s/o Michael Robinson and Mary James, and that Deponent Mathew Bayne is he who md. Lucy Robinson, d/o Michael & Mary James Robinson.
