Help linking Mary (Jones) Glass to Thompson P. Glass (1800s)

+3 votes
I am attempting to link my ancestor Eliza (Glass) Brown [born 02 Feb 1838-Ohio] to her grandparents who I believe to be Henry Vincent Glass [born 8 Nov, 1746-Virginia] and Mary(Jones) Glass [born 1755-Virginia] through who I believe to be her father Thompson P. Glass  [FindAGrave memorial #141793764] .However, I cannot find any sources to truly confirm the relationship between Eliza andThompson P. Glass.   All parties appear to be buried in Rock Hill Baptist Church Cemetery in Belmont County, Ohio which supports but does not prove my supposition.

Finding Eliza's mother, aka Thompson P. Glass's spouse would be a good start.

Eliza (Glass) Brown MAY have been born Mary E. Glass.

I couldn't figure out how to list multiple WikiTree ID's so here they at:

Marriage of Eliza and Daniel confirming Thompson as her father.

by Deb Durham G2G Astronaut (1m points)

Death of Thompson

Thanks Deb.   That shows that Thompson Glass was the father of my Eliza Glass.  However, it doesn't confirm that this Thompson Glass is the same Thompson P. Glass shown on the FindAGrave memorial.  If I knew they were one and the same I would be golden but similar names doesn't "prove" it to me.   The fact that all parties are in Belmont County, Ohio certainly supports the conclusion but I am a bit paranoid.
I agree. I was about to come back and say I see some problems here. Thompson P. married Margaret Arters? in 1849. That doesn't preclude him being Eliza's father but I might have expected other children from a first marriage. However, the 1850 census only shows an infant born to Thompson and  Margaret. I can't find a previous marriage record for him and he would have been quite young to be her father. Men weren't considered "of age" until 21.

Per, it was a Peter Thompson Glass who married Margaret Arters and had 5 children (one who would have been an infant in 1850).   This Peter Thompson Glass has a different date of birth than the Thompson P. Glass referenced before.   I lean towards believing this is a second (or third) Thompson Glass.   Thanks for your help so far.  I am still looking for the mother of Eliza Glass.  Quite a challenge.
