  • Notes 
    • Birth: 1745
      Salem
      Essex County
      Massachusetts, USA
      Death: Dec. 2, 1807
      Sargentville
      Hancock County

      Abigail, born in Salem, Massachusetts, was the last child (to my knowledge) of Joseph Glover and his wife, Mary Cook. Abigail's christening date is 15 Dec., 1745 in Salem, according to Salem's Vital Records, and I think 1745 was the year she was born because in 1807, when she died, she was shown as 62 years old.

      Both the Glover family and the Cook family can be found in Salem's records in early-to-mid 1600s.

      Mary Cook's GGrandparents were Henry Cook and his wife, Judith Birdsall who married in Salem on June 16, 1639.

      Joseph Glover's Grandparents were John Glover (parents unknown) who married Mary Guppy, Reuben and Eleanor Guppy's daughter. John and Mary Guppy Glover were married in Salem on 2 Jan. 1660.

      Abigail Glover's father, Joseph, was born in Salem on 27 June, 1706 but he wasn't baptized there until 3 Dec. 1727.
      Joseph died young and I'm not certain where he died but Salem's records show a death date of Dec. 1747, two years after little Abigail was born so I'm sure she never remembered him.

      Joseph Glover's parents were Jonathan (son of John and Mary Guppy Glover) and his wife, Abigail Henderson, d/o Capt. Peter Henderson and his wife Abigail Bully who fled to Salem from the Saco, Maine region when King Philip's War was underway.

      Abigail Glover's father, Joseph, had two sisters and three brothers, all born in Salem. One of his brothers, Jonathan, achieved a certain notoriety when he and his wife, Tabitha Bacon, became the parents of John Glover, later promoted from Captain to Brig. General by General George Washington during the American Revolution. "John Glover and his Marblehead Mariners" were also credited by several modern-day authors as significantly helping Washington win the war. Tabith Bacon Glover (d/o John and Hannah King Bacon) and Mary Cook Glover, became widows at rather young ages, left with several young children at home to care for.

      Abigail met that handsome (and mysterious) Robert Byard, a mariner like some of her brothers, and at age 18, she and Robert were married in Salem on Dec. 15, 1763.
