Thornton, Solomon Thomas ? - 1 Feb 1898 (infant son of James Harris and Mattie Brown Thornton) Note from Lisa Windham: The Byrd-Glover Cemetery has been called that ever since I can remember. I grew up just 3-4 mi down the road & I've never heard it called anything else. There are Byrd & Glover folks buried there, as well as McDaniel, Nelson, Ogburn, Saylor & some others too. It's not a very large cemetery at all, but I suspect there are a lot more folks buried there than we know about (unmarked graves). The name came from the folks who are buried in it and the fact that it's located across the road (there was no road there then) from a church that Nancy Byrd donated the land for in exchange for having a log home built. That is the site of what later became known as Glover School.
This cemetery was not always called the Byrd-Glover Cemetery.
Old newspapers refer to it as the Glover School House Cemetery.
In Essie Child's book on Taylor County she also refers to this cemetery without mentioning the Byrd name. The school was the Glover School. The old maps of Taylor and possibly the new maps show Glover Cemetery. Yes there are Byrds buried there but the majority of the graves are Glover family connected names,Glover, Ogburn, English, Saylor, Musselwhite. It is said that the School was across the road from the cemetery. It makes it difficult when names change for old burial grounds. The old newspapers and other accounts will not reflect the new name and there lies the big problem. No this is not Byrd-Glover Cemetery It was simply Glover Cemetery or Glover School House Cemetery.

CURTIS Q. ENGLISH DIES IN PORTLAND, ORE.
News was received in Oglethorpe today of the death Tuesday morning at a hospital in Portland, Oregon, of Curtis Q. English, former Macon County Citizen, his death having resulted from an illness of several days with influenza.
Mr. English was a native of Macon County, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Tom English of Englishville, and he is survived by three brothers in the old home community, Russell English, Will English and W. T. English and a sister, Mrs. Etta Royal of Ellaville, Ga. His wife, formerly Miss Florine Ogburn of Reynolds, Ga. survives and she is returning with the body to Reynolds for funeral and interment. The time for the funeral has not been announced, but it will probably not be before the first of next week, due to the length of the trip from Portland.

A SAD ACCIDENT
On last Friday, June 10th, about 9 am, the neighborhood of Englishville, in this county, was shocked as never before by the sad news being flashed over telephone and other means of the accidental killing of Mr. Albert English, by his brother, Mr. Russell English.
The facts as learned are about as follows: The brothers were seated on the varanda when some disturbance occured among the chickens near the house and upon Albert's suggestion, Russell went into the room to get the gun, and evidently unbreached the gun to examine the shells, and after coming out of the room and putting the gun back in breach, by some means unknown, the gun was discharged and the entire load striking Albert in the back of the head, killing him instantly.
Albert was a prosperous young farmer and leaves many relatives and friends to mourn the seemingly untimely death.
Russell English, who was a party to the sad accident, has the entire sympathy of his many friends in this hour of distress. A Friend
[Note: Albert English & Russell English were sons of Thomas H. English [1835-1907] and Eliza Virginia (Higgins) English [1842-1908] both buried in the English Family Cemetery. Thomas & Eliza English had 13 children:
