Karla Calhoun My grandmother, Mary Alma was born Aug 10, 1907 in Adamsville TN to Rosie Springer. Rosa Mary Springer married Jason Dixon when Alma was just a toddler, but they divorced afterward. They are listed on the 1910 McNairy TN census. Lisie B. Springer, Rosa's mother is with them. Some time after this before 1920 Rosie became ill with tuberculosis and eventually died. By 1920 my grandmother Alma Springer is living with her Glover relatives in Prentiss Co. MS. She is listed on the 1920 census with Joseph D. and Lula Vaughn Glover's family. Lula was her father's sister. I believe that Joseph Glover's mother Ginny was a Springer. My grandmother always said that she and their children were double cousins I have been told. George & Virginia Glover lived next door to the Springers (her parents I think) in the 1880 Fayette Co. AL census. She named her first daughter Rosey the same as the youngest daughter in the Springer family next door. Her first son was Joseph, same as the father living next door. This same Rosey grew up to have my grandmother Alma Springer. They all wound up living in the Hardin/ McNairy co. area of TN. By the time she married in 1925 in Booneville, MS my grandmother was known as Alma Glover.

Vickie Glove-Phillips I have been researching my Glover/Kenneda family for over 15 years. I have always been interested in where I came from and who my family was. I have pretty much done all the research on my own. My Dad would not talk about much, except for names of his mom and dad and where they were born. I was lucky enough to know my Uncle and his wife growing up and they gave me a little more to go on. My grandfather was Will W. Glover and he married Julia Joiner Kenneda on 22 June 1904, Stewart County Tennessee. His father was John Glover from Tennessee.

DEATH SUMMONS.WILL W. GLOVER Clarksville Leaf 9 Apr 1935
Noah Springs Man to be Buried Wednesday Morning.
Will W. Glover, 62, retired farmer of Noah Springs, Kentucky, died at his home at 9 a. m., today following an illness of four years.
Funeral services will be conducted from the grave in the Hickory Grove cemetery at 11 a. m., Wed by the Rev. N. D. Story. Pallbearers will be Martin and Elbert Foster, William Jimpson, Claude King, Essie Heflin, and Ivery Woods. He is survived by his wife Mrs. Julia Kenneda Glover, two sons, Frank and Wesley Glover, and three daughters, Misses Martha, and Rosa Glover of Noah Springs, and Mrs Maudie Johnson of Jordan Springs. Born on May 3, 1872, the son of Mr. And Mrs. John Glover, he had spent his entire life in the community in which he died. He had many friends and was a devoted member of the Hickory Grove Baptist Church.

This is the Obit that I received from the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle. Will and Julia also had a Son Robert b. 1909 in Tennessee, died when he was 18yrs (1927) and a daughter Grace May b. 1907 Kentucky. d. 1 Feb, 1923 age 16. PLEASE, if anyone knows of any of the people in the obit, please contact me. I have also found N. D. Story was the preacher at Harmony Baptist Church. I have found the Hickory Grove Cemetery and it is located at Fort Campbell.
