Family Cookbook
(Mary) Caroline (Boone) Alford has spent the last 15 years compiling her favorite family recipes - some 418 pages of mouthwatering delights! Barnes and Noble Bookstores may put it in their southern stores as a regional interest book. 

The title is Southern Cooking with Caroline. It has a lot of helpful information for beginning cooks, and all the steps are numbered for easy use. Knowing Caroline's family I can personally guarantee that this book is the only one you will need.
You can order it from her website at:
http://southerncookingwithcaroline.com
and she does accept payments via Paypal.

Most recent update to our family records - Caroline has been diligent in attempting to keep it current - somewhat difficult given the absolute number of marriages and babies. Thanks to Caroline.
2014 update

Trimble (Boone) Family
Aunt Winnie found this picture of a school in Hogansville taught by Frank Trimble and his wife Fannie. Grannie (Fannie Jones Glover) referred to them as Cousins. The picture was taken about 1890. On the reverse side was a listing of the names (click here for a pic of the reverse side)

Also, Caroline has done significant research on some of the Trimble papers.  See them here.



2018 Glover Family Reunion

On Saturday May 26th, we held a great family reunion here in Newnan.  Thanks to Caroline Alford for handling all the planning and details.  We were treated with a BBQ dinner from Sprayberry’s.  My best estimate is that we had around 80 in attendance. Hopefully we can plan for our next one to have even more folks.

New Stories

 While cleaning up some computer files, I found two more wonderful stories...  One was written by Aunt Mary Glover Nixon in April 1978 and put into a local time capsule.  It covers her memories of early Newnan.  This is a must-read.

A second story was a fiction/non-fiction story written by cousin Susan Glover Logan, titled Aunt Penny.  This was a play on names as it was about her memories as a child visiting Aunt Jenny (Virginia Glover Cook Graham)

Glovers of Marengo County

I have been searching for a copy of this definitive work of research for many years.. finally found it and was able to scan into pdf format.  This traces the Allen Glover and associated families.

Do you ever get the feeling that you might be a bit Irish?  I found some ancestors who were landed gentry - Mount Glover in County Cork Ireland.
