Subject: [GLAZEBROOK] 2016 LIST of Glazebrook men
Hello Joyce Were you able to pull up the excel list? Yes I was working mainly on the Glazebrook men whom we find in the USA about 1600 to 1850. The women have a name change and we will follow them with another research if we could just connect the families we have
Robert who appears in tax records 1670 St Paul's Parish, Kent Co., Virginia
Julius born 1712 living in VA
James born 1738 married Elizabeth Spence
James born 1739 married Mary Bowles
Julius born 1752 Revolutionary War veteran (Also a Thomas and Richard was listed) No idea who Thomas is or where he fits.
Richard born 1753
Tried to list all their known children and wives.
If you could not open the file, I will work on it. Let me know. Thank you for reply. Diane
PS: Just working on this message, I realized I need a cover page for the excel list.
