Ezekiel and Patsy

It was obvious from the lawsuit that the slave named Amanda wasn’t sold back in 1842, or at anytime up to this point. And there was enough doubt to be considered as to whether she was sold as a result of these proceedings. It would seem, and also believed, that Amanda never existed, and if she did, then she was more than likely the daughter of Sukey, who died. Nevertheless, the Glens did what they thought they had to do, in order to keep their kin from being sold.

Going back in time, to the year 1840. We are comfortable in saying, that it was Thompson & Patsy Clarissa Glen’s son, William Glen who took Susannah to Monroe County, Kentucky. It is quite certain, that it was he that was listed as Will Glenn on the 1840 Federal Census of Monroe County, Kentucky. The only other person listed in his household, was a man around ┬áTimothy Coe’s age. The belief is, that it was he, and that it was his and not Will Glenn’s house that was claimed on the census. Listed right above Will was his in law, Giles Hudspeth. This single record pertaining to Will Glenn, just didn’t jive with someone who was a permanent resident there, because it was the first and the last time his name could be located on anything, in that place.
