Thank you for the long history of the Glascocks of North Carolina
Thought all my relatives were from Germany 2 generations ago.
I was suprised to find them from North Carolina!Name Glascocks (Glascox)
My grandmother never spoke of her earlier life AT ALL and my father died when I was 7... so all has come up from Ancestry.com.
My biological grandfather was a man named Frank Glascox
I have seen many spellings of this in the different census's etc so think that "Glascocks" could be the original one as I cant find any "Glascox" in North Carolina and yet am SURE they all were born and raised there for some generations until my great Grandfather and Great Grand mother took their kids and moved to Washington DC.I am guessing about 1887-1889.
This story is a mystery as the 1900 census in Washington Dc finds Margaret Glascox my great grandmother married but was the Head of household and worked for the government as a clerk.....(my grand father was 7 at the time.)
NO husband listed living with her.
10 years later 1910 census she is still married but no husband around.Not a widow mind you "married"Also dont have any mention of her maiden name.
Either he didnt come to Washington DC with them or he came and left for the gold rush or somewhere and never returned.
I have records of them in Washington DC but in North Carolina I cant find one for sure ancestor.NOT ONE.
Just many records where they all said they were born in North Carolina as their parents were.
The birth records for North Carolina only start in 1917 I think so didnt find them there.
Dont know for sure what county even but am leaning toward Iridell
I Figured they changed their names spelling on moving to Washington DC.
I had no siblings from my father(Frank Jr.)
There was one other child born to Lillian, Frank Sr.'s sister named Helen born in Washington DC.about 1910 maybe?
she could have children.and Claude may had had children also but didnt see any census for him later and chldrens names.
I havent check to see if any are on ancestry.
I have come to the conclusion that Iridell may be the county that i would find my relatives in.
However my only clues are Ashville and Statesville written as birth places for Frank and Claude A.
Frank Sr.'s father i think was named Charles L.Glascox (Glascocks) also from North Carolina.dont know where.Saw it mentioned once on Marie, his sisters passport.
Frank Sr. had 2 sisters; Marie and Lillian and a brother Claude A.
His mother Margaret was born in North Carolina too and her parents also.
Frank Sr's brother Claude listed on the draft he was born in Statesville and Frank Sr. supposedly born in Ashville
I cant find ANY record of them in North Carolina however on anything that comes up, not one of the whole family on Ancestry...nobody but every census and every document on them says they are from North Carolina...so I KNOW their family and some of the ppl you mentioned in your ancestry you wrote for Glascocks..had to be his and are mine.
Its frustating to be so stalled at an empass top prove and move on... to back wherever they came over from Scotland and when?
Then thought I could start from the back and see if anyone had a son "Charles".born 1850-1865 or so?
Saw Pete and all the others on ancestrys lists.... none of mine.
Only found one person had a child named Charles and it couldnt have been the right one i dont think by the father name and dates.
Well thanks again.
I am going to reread this history of Glascocks......and save it.
Any other info that might come to you or sound familiar please let me know.
Bonne Terre, Missouri
