Hugh Glenn was born in 1774, and on August 1, 1801, married Elizabeth McCausland, daughter of John McCausland, the marriage being solemnized by Rev. William Wilson, pastor of the Old Stone Church. He was a prosperous farmer and in 1804 completed the brick residence now standing near Mount Sidney. In after years when the Valley Pike was built, it ran through his property immediately in front of his home, (the location now is near Mt. Sidney on the left hand side of the Lee Highway as you approach from the south. Hugh Glenn is said to have owned about one thousand acres. He had his own distillery, and appears to have been a man of considerable wealth.

Nine children were born to Hugh Glenn and Elizabeth McCausland, his first wife who died in the latter part of 1820 or early in 1821. On May 15, 1820, the signatures of Hugh Glenn and Elizabeth his wife are shown on a deed recorded in, D.B. 45, page 84, of Augusta County records and on November 13, 1821, Hugh Glenn contracted a second marriage with Rebecca Anderson (nee Turk); later in life he was married a third time to Susan Taylor. He died at his home near Mount Sidney January 24, 1834, in his sixtieth year and is buried near his father.

After the death of his wife, Hugh Glenn married on November 13, 1821, Rebecca Anderson (nee Turk) the widow of James Anderson, by whom he had two children, viz.: (B1) Esther J. Glenn and (B2) James Turk Glenn.
