Mary Lumpkin Glenn Brown
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1798
Death: 1865

Daughter of James Anderson Glenn and Isabella Wilson

Mary Lumpkin Glenn married the Honorable Bedford Brown of Rose Hill, Caswell County on 6 July 1816, and they had seven children; lawyer and scholar linguist Livingston, Bedford Jr., a physician, Wilson Glenn, Isabella Virginia, Virginia, Laura, and Rosalie. She, like her mother and three sisters, attended Salem Academy. Her husband was a state legislator, later a U.S. Senator, and was a vigorous opponent of secession. Rose Hill, built by Colonel Jethro Brown about 1800, was given to his son, along with 1000 acres and 100 slaves, as a wedding gift. After a wedding trip to England, Mrs. Brown supervised the planting of the grounds with hundreds of rose bushes and more than 2000 boxwoods. Bedford Brown and his wife Mary Lumpkin Glenn were buried on the grounds of their home "Rose Hill". The estate still is owned and occupied by the Brown family.
