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, 
It is said that the School was across the road from the 
It makes it difficult when names change for old burial 
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.

The Macon County Citizen - The Montezuma Georgian
 Merged Oct. 1, 1931 December 22, 1932
Reynolds, Ga. Dec. 21 - The death of Mrs. E. G. English, of 
Reynolds, was a shock to the whole Reynolds, Taylor County and 
adjoining counties Tuesday afternoon. 
This venerable lady would have been eighty years of age next
January 7th and her death is a source of grief to a wide 
circle of friends and acquaintances.
Mrs. English was the daughter of Elder J. P. Glover 
(John Paschal Glover),a Primitive Baptist minister of note, and Matilda Vinson Glover.
Mrs. English having been married twice, her first husband was
J. L. Ogburn who died in 1884 while her second husband was 
the late Capt. E. G. English.
Mrs. English had been ill of the infirmities of old age 
with influenza complications. She is survived by two 
daughters, Mrs. O. E. English of Portland, Oregon and 
Miss Melissa Ogburn, principal of Butler High School of 
Services at the home at 2:30 P.M. Wednesday and interment 
at Glover's Cemetery.

Macon County Citizen-Montezuma Georgian Jan. 16, 1941
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.
[Note: Quinton Curtis English - Born April 2, 1875 - Died January 14, 1941 is buried in Glover Cemetery, State Hwy 263, N. of Reynolds [Taylor Co.], Ga. beside his wife, Florine Ogburn English [10-5-1882 - 3-29-1959]

which at that time included part of what is now Taylor County."

Macon County Citizen - Oglethorpe, Ga. June 23, 1916
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
