Rhoda Glover Fairchild

Rhoda Glover was born on 25 Feb 1769 at Newtown, Fairfield,

Connecticut, the daughter of Henry Glover and Ann Sanford. The family home was

across from what is now old Town Hall on Main Street.

She married Joseph Fairchild Jr,

son of Joseph Fairchild and Mary Botsford, on 8 Sep 1793 at

Huntington Congregational Church, Huntington, Fairfield, Connecticut.

She and Joseph Fairchild Jr appeared on the census of 1800

at Huntington, Fairfield, Connecticut. They appeared on the census of 1810 at Sherman,

Fairfield, Connecticut.

They received a receipt of heirs for Rhoda and Joseph Fairchild from her father's

bequest on 8 Mar 1815. They are identified in the codicil to Henry Glover's will.

They appeared on the census of 1820 at Roxbury, Litchfield, Connecticut. Joseph died

30 Sep 1829 at Roxbury.

They had four children together: Sally baptized 8 Sep 1793, Glover (our ancestor) baptized 31 Jul 1796

in Huntington, Anna baptized 26 Jul 1801 in Huntington, and Mary Ann.

Rhoda moved west with her daughter Anna who had married Samuel Weller. The last we know of her

is that she appeared on the census of 1850 in the household of Samuel

Sherman Weller at Orange, Cuyahoga, Ohio.

Her son Glover is my 4th great grandfather. He settled in Roxbury and Sherman and married Anna Beardsley.
