Jesse McGlamery and 'Nancy' Ann Roper


The earlist mention of the surname "McGlamery" I have found in the records of the Tryon/Rutherford County NC region are from 1785. In that year Jesse McGlamery served as a bondsman in the marriage of Joseph Scott and Sarah McGlamery. And Sarah McGlamery made an entry to receive a land grant in the name of George McGlamery (see also George McGlamery). I have not found an original record which indicates if or how Jesse, Sarah, and George may be related, or where they may have come from before they arrived in Rutherford County. Please contact me if you know of any original evidence of their relationship or where they came from.

In addition to the 1785 records linking Sarah to both Jesse and George, there are other records suggesting a link between Jesse and George: When Jesse died, George was named an administrator of his estate along with Jesse's wife Nancy/Ann. George witnessed several of Jesse's land deeds. Also, Jesse named one of his sons George (also a daughter named Sarah). And they both appear to have lived in the same area of Rutherford County which became northwestern Cleveland County in 1841.

Jesse McGlamery married Nancy Roper based on a 1789 marriage bond from Rutherford County, NC. Jesse's wife seems to have used both "Nancy" and "Ann" as her first name. She was named as "Ann McGlamery" in her 1848 will, and "Nancy McGlamery" in the 1850 census. In the estate papers of Charles Roper of Rockingham County, NC, she was actually described as "Nancy or Ann" in statments from two different individuals which seems to confirm that Nancy and Ann were in fact the same person.

The estate papers of Charles Roper also identify Nancy/Ann as the daughter of David and Sarah Roper (mother's maiden name not given). David is described as having come from Virginia, where his children were born, and later living in Wilkes County, NC, and then Caswell County, NC. The children of David and Sarah are listed as follows - Sons: David (Jr.), William, John, James, George, and Charles. Daughters: Jemima, Sarah, Agnis, Nancy or Ann, Jane, Molley, Elisabeth, and Suckey.

Jesse McGlamery is listed in the 1790 Census of Rutherford County, NC (image) with one adult male and one female in the household. Jesse is also listed in the 1800 Census of Rutherford County, NC (image) with one male age 26-44, one female age 26-44, one male age 10-15, three males under 10, and one female under 10. If Jesse was age 26-44 in 1800, that would place his date of birth sometime between 1755 and 1774.

Jesse McGlamery had died of unknown causes by April 1807 when the Rutherford County, NC court ordered that "letters of administration issue to George & Ann McGlamery on the estate of Jesse McGlamery deceased". In that same court session George McGlamery returned to the court with an inventory of Jesse McGlamery's estate, and the court issued an order "to lay off to Ann McGlamery widow of Jesse McGlamery one years provision under the act of assembly".

In the court session of April 1809, the court "appointed Ann McGlamery guardian to Jane, Jesse, George, David, Andrew, & Sarah McGlamery orphans of Jesse McGlamery dec'd". These are assumed to be the six children of Jesse and Nancy/Ann that were surviving as of 1809. The following is some additional information I have collected on these children.

Nancy/Ann McGlamery left a will in Rutherford County, NC in the name of "Ann McGlamery" dated 12 June 1848. The original copy of her will is preserved in the North Carolina State Archives. Written on the back of the will is the indication that it was "Recorded Nov. Court 1850". "Nancy McGlamery", age 78, was listed in the 1850 Census of Cleveland County, NC in the household of her son Andrew McGlamery. The Census page listing her name was dated 10 October 1850, so she apparently died sometime in October or November of 1850.


Ann McGlamery's Will

The following is the text of the will of Ann McGlamery of Cleveland County, North Carolina dated June 12th, 1848.

The original will is filed in the state archives under call number C.R.026.801.713:

Charles Roper Estate

The estate file of Charles Roper of Rockingham County, NC (dated 1857) includes significant information on the family of Jesse and Nancy/Ann Roper McGlamery. When Charles Roper died intestate, the children of Jesse and Nancy/Ann came forward and claimed to be the rightful heirs of his estate based on the assumption that Charles was the brother of their mother. This resulted in a series of sworn statements being taken which listed the children of Jesse and Nancy/Ann, and named Nancy/Ann's parents and siblings.

Charles Roper's estate was complex as multiple families came forward claiming to be the rightful heirs. His estate file was very large as it included 447 pages of statements that were taken over a period of more than 20 years. Since Rockingham County was some distance from where Nancy/Ann's children lived in Cleveland and Wilkes Counties, and Nancy/Ann had been dead for some time before Charles died, it is unclear how certain Nancy/Ann's children may have been about whether the Charles Roper of Rockingham County was in fact the same Charles Roper who was their mother's brother. But regardless, the statements taken in support of their case resulted in a wealth of genealogical information on the family.

Below are transcriptions of a few selected documents from Charles Roper's estate file which provide information on the family of Nancy/Ann Roper McGlamery12. The page numbers listed are those found with the online images of the estate file at FamilySearch.org. Pages 97 and 219 are significant in referring to "Nancy or Ann" which establishes that Nancy Roper and Ann McGlamery were in fact the same person.
