Alexander Glover (1710-1770)
Alexander Glover, the second son of Nathaniel, Jr., and Rachael (Marsh) Glover, was born at the homestead in Dorchester, November 13, 1710, baptized November 26, 1710, by Rev. John Danforth, died in Dorchester, March 15, 1770, in his 60th year, and was buried in the ancient burial yard; he has a gravestone.

February 5, 1732, he was married to Sarah White, daughter of Edward and Patience (Bird) White, by Rev. Jonathan Bowman. She was born in Dorchester, April 3, 1711, and died there Dec. 3, 1790, in her 80th year. There were ten children born from this union.

He occupied the homestead with his mother, and at her decease succeeded to his inheritance (See p. 54.) It has been said of him that he possessed in a remarkable degree those admirable and desirable traits of character and habits of life which distinguished his father, although not called to so public and active a life. He was a member of the Dorchester Church, and adorned his profession by a quiet, sober, and usefull life. He occasionally served in town offices.

May 13, 1746, his name is enrolled among a list of elderly persons qualified to serve as Grand Jurors for the County of Suffolk.

In 1744 he is enrolled among those capable of bearing arms and liable to appear at alarm, "and living within the limits of the First Independent Company in the Town of Dorchester, whereof Col. Estes Hatch is Captain."

Alexander Glover served at Castle William as a soldier, and was discharged in 1748.
