Answer to Query 52 (March, 1938, p. 137, M.E.M.): Uriah Glover (1740-1830) married Elizabeth Robinson (1744-1822). The family record of John B. Glover great-grandson of Uriah Glover, states:

My great grandfather was born on Long Island in 1740, where he probably lived until he was a full grown man, when he crossed over into New Jersey and located near Elizabeth. This was some years before the Revolutionary War. Here my grandfather, Uriah Glover, Jr. was born in 1773. While he was a young man his father moved to Uniontown, Penn., where the entire family remained until 1797, when they "sold out," and started for Louisville, KY. They came down the Ohio River on a flatboat. The landing was made just above the falls, where the city now stands. They pushed out" into the country and settled in Shelby Co., KY. Just before leaving Penn. my grandfather married Priscilla Gaddis, daughter of Col. Thomas Gaddis, who was a gallant soldier in the war of the Revolution. Sarah (1807-1847) daughter of Uriah Glover, Jr. and Priscilla Gaddis, married (1) Fielding D. McGrew and had one child, Fielding Rice McGrew (1828-1849), who died unmarried; (2) John Daniel Shyrer, and had five children, the youngest, Mary Sophronia married James Ferrier, my father. Records of the Glover family have been compiled, but the Revolutionary service of Uriah Glover, Sr. has not been proved. -- Miss Mary Ferrier, 228 West Front Street, Jeffersonville, Indiana. ®157
