  • Notes 
    • Hi Hal,
      I am doing a little research on James Monroe Glass, son of Calvin and Martha, and I noticed you are the only one that posted anything about him on Ancestry. Since I have added a little to what you posted, I thought you might like the info. It is hard to keep him straight from Anderson's son, James M. Glasscock/Glass, isn't it.
      Started doing this because we found out that James Monroe Glasscock, later known as James Monroe Glass, is buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery, where we placed the memorial stone for Alexander and Ruth. I am copying to Martha, so she will have it for her files, also.
      When we were up at the cemetery a few weeks ago, a very nice 90 year old gentleman stopped by to thank us for cleaning the place where his grandfather is buried.It is an unmarked grave, and he only knew the general area, so not sure whether we will be able to mark the grave, but I wanted to collect the info on the chance that we might.
      Mr. Glass told us the family story that James had ridden a horse all the way to Waco, TX to claim his bride, a Miss Mary Ann Shannon, married her and brought her back by horse and buggy to AL. He said they had tried to find out about the Shannon family, but never had any luck. I have found Mary with James on the 1900, 1910, and alone on the 1920 census records. I am sure it is them, as Mr. Glass said Mary had a sister, Metha, this couple has a daughter by that name. On the census records, Mary gives her middle initial as G. and J., so I am unsure about the Mary Ann part. Also, this Mr. Glass was adamant that he was not related to Carl Glass, that we already know is a descendant of Anderson Glasscock/Glass, so that makes the J. M. at Mt. Hope Calvin's son.

      1900 Mineral Springs, Chilton, AL
      Glasscock, James born Oct. 1869
      Mary G. born Nov. 1870 b. TN/Ark/AL
      Collie W. April 1891 (later WWI Draft records show that to be Collie Washington Glass, April 8, 1888 - Jan. 1965)
      James B. Dec. 1893
      Meatha E. May 1896
      Dora A. Feb. 1900

      1910 Birmingham, Jefferson County, AL
      Glass, Jas married at age 21 and is a carpenter
      Mary J. has had 6 children all still living AL/Ark/AL
      Collie 19 is a barber
      Jas Jr. 16 is a painter
      Metha 13
      Dora 8
      Ethel 6
      Orrie 2 (on this census given as a daughter, next one says is a son Ira)

      Obviously James died between 1914 and 1920 because Mary is HH on the 1920 census

      1920 Jemison, Chilton County, AL (census done on 3rd of Jan)
      Glass, Mary wdw age hard to read looks to be 57 which can't be right, should be about 50 AL/AL/AL
      Ethel dau age 15
      Ira son 13
      Walter son 8
      Virgal son 6

      With the Alabama death records, I noted that Collie had a son Collie E. born Jul 2, 1913 died August 1981. I did not try to trace the family further down, since it is a collateral line, but thought I would add that note in case it was of interest to you. I know Collie appears on the 1930 census with his family, I did not look for him on the 1920, but his draft record in 1917 said he was married with 2 children.
      Hope this is useful for your files.
