Research Notes

There is a conflict as to the date of death. FindAGrave shows 28 Jun 1857. The newspaper article from 26 Jun 1948 gives May, 1857 as his date of death. The newspaper article is believed to be more accurate than the FindAGrave entry.

Findagrave note: "one of the founding Pioneers of white river township, Johnson county, Indiana. Judge, chairman of the board of justices of Johnson county. held several elected county offices. His father was also named Archibald Glenn, as is his son and grandson (son and grandson both are burried nearby)" His page lists and has links to his father, sibling, spouse, children. See:
