John died on 28 June 1784 in Rectortown, Fauquier County, Virginia.
In 1723, John's father, Thomas Glascock, murdered William Forrester and escaped justice; he was never seen again. The family's property was confiscated and ended up in the hands of Robert "King" Carter. Carter's will (1726) instructed his son, John Carter, "if my son John (Carter) comes to enjoy the said Glascock's lands under a good title that he then further consider the said Glascock's children in such proportion as he shall think fitt, or otherwise gratify them according to his discretion." Apparently he did see fit, because John Glascock and his brother, Peter Glascock, settled on land owned by John Carter in Prince William County.
He is listed as a Patriot of the Revolution for supplying beef and bacon to the Continental Army. In Richmond County court records on 3 April 1782 he was given recompense for 86 lbs of bacon at 1 shilling per pound, and for 2000 lb of Grass Beef at 20 shillings a hundred lb. These supplies were "impressed by John HOW, deputy commissary of this county,"
