Thomas and Sarah Glascock had the following children:
"Gregory Glasscock of Farnham Rappahannock County and Mary his wife conveys land to Thomas Glasscock formerly granted to his father Thomas Glasscock on Moratico Creek on 18 Jany 1662 Date of the conveyance May 2 1683 Rappahannock Records."
"The Simonson property was originally part of Indian Banks (circa 1699) and was bought at a price of $725 as a settlement to the Pitts family to cover costs of care from the Western Lunatic Asylum in 1878. Thomas Dobyns had granted this land to the freed slaves after acquiring Indian Banks from the Glasscock family in 1822.
The Glasscock family had re-acquired the property from Colonel Robert Carter after he showed compassion on the family by returning the property to the original owners after Thomas Glasscock's estate (Indian Banks) was confiscated because of Glasscock being indicted and outlawed for The murder of William Forrester in 1727." 
"Judge Sammy Peachey wrestled with this dilemma he faced. He knew the Glascock family well. Thomas Glascock was married to Sarah Stone, who gave him six children, three of them now being adults. All appearances showed this was a successful happy family of Richmond County. Thomas not only was a planter with a large plantation and many slaves, but he also was a surveyor of roads.
This is the last person in the worldSammy would ever expect of commiting such a horrendous crime. It just didn't make sense to him. Not only were Thomas and Sarah good people, but their children seem to follow their example. Although Sammy struggled with why it all happened, he couldn't overlook the fact that Thomas never returned to stand trial. Whether he died on his escape route or he just stayed away because of shame and remorse, he never was to be seen again.
When it came time for the trial, the prosecutor called upon two of the sons of Thomas Glascock to testify. John, the oldest, and his brother, Thomas, swore that they had observed their brother, Gregory, help their father load the boat and leave together. Sammy Peachey charged 23-year old Gregory Glascock as an accessory to murder. However, since his father wasn't there for his conviction, he was released.
The following is a copy of the testimony at the hearing: "Gregory Glascock being examined saith that on the 5th of November last about midnight he sat off in a boat with his father, THOMAS GLASCOCK from their Landing (on Farnham Creek) and the next morning his father put him on Shoar the other side of the River about five miles below Morattico Creek, and then he travelled to Gloucester Town, and went over the Ferrey to York Town, and from thence went to Hampton Town, and soe went over James River and Landed at one Willsons, and from thence Traveled Through Norfolk Town and went to a place Called the Northwest Landing, and then came back about Two Days before Christmas to the house of one Nehomiah Jones, and from thence the best of his way home."
According to the best source on the Glascock family, Lawrence A. Glasco, "The murder and the subsquent flight of Thomas (perhaps eventually south to the Carolinas) left his wife, Sarah, with six children on the Farnham Creek property. She probably maintained the home for a time in the best way she could manage, but Robert "King" Carter took possession of Thomas' real estate, negroes and other property which was forfeited to the government. Carter's will in 1726 states "if my son John (Carter) comes to enjoy the said Glascock's land under a good title that then he further consider the said Glascock's children in such proportion as he shall think fitt, or otherwise gratify them according to his discretion"
"THOMAS GLASCOCK (1661-62, Richmond Co. - 1725-26, Fauquier Co.), lived on Farnham Creek about three miles north of Indian Banks. He was the grandson of Thomas and Jane Just Glascock, the son of Gregory Glascock (1634-44, England - 1690, VA) and the first cousin of Col. George Glascock of Indian Banks. Thomas married Sarah Stone in 1689 and their children were Gregory, John, Elizabeth, Thomas Jr., Sarah Stone and Peter Glascock. On 11/5/1723, for reasons unknown, Thomas stabbed to death one William Forrester. After the murder Glascock and his son Gregory, then 23, left in a small boat, but Gregory was put ashore about five miles below Morattico Creek and from there traveled as far as Norfolk before returning home. Upon his return he was named as an accessory to the murder; however, his testimony and that of his brothers resulted in his release. Thomas Glascock was never heard from again. Sarah Glascock remained with her children on Farnham Creek, but after her husband's indictment his property was confiscated and Robert "King" Carter took possession of his estate. Carter's 1726 will stated, "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." Since both John and Peter Glascock settled on land owned by John Carter in Prince William County, it appears that Carter's son honored his father's request"
Thomas died on circa 1726 in Farnham Parrish, Virginia.
Old Rappahannock County became extinct in 1692, when it was divided in into Essex and Richmond Counties.
