---------------------------------------------------------------------------

About 1781, the brothers left Delaware and went to Western Pennsylvania, Amos locating in Washington County and Nehemiah in Greene County. Shortly afterwards Nehemiah married Dorcas Koen, a sister of Isaac Koen, the father of Peter and James Koen, early pioneers who settled in Wetzel County, near Wileysville. Shortly after his marriage, Nehemiah Glover brought his bride to the head of Dunkard Creek, in Monongalia County, where they settled about two miles southeast of Wadestown, on what is known as the Wilson Haught farm. To this union were born thirteen children (listed in Generation Seven).

In 1797, Nehemiah Glover, Sr., took up a track of unbroken forest land where Glover's Gap tunnel now is, on the Marion County side, where he erected a log cabin and moved his family. The country in that section at that time was a perfect wilderness; wild beasts roamed the forests; the Indian's war cry had scarcely ceased on Buffalo Creek; a railroad had not been thought of in the United States; settlements were few and far between; Wheeling, a mere village, was the nearest market for gunpowder and salt; there were no roads, except, perhaps, a bridle path between the Monongahela and Ohio Valleys, which had been more frequently used by the Indians than by the whites. Such were the conditions that surrounded the Glover family when they arrived at their new home at the 'Low Gap', in 1797.

After clearing a large scope of land, and raising his family up to an age when the children were able to look after themselves, Nehemiah died about the year 1845 and was buried on what is now called 'Tunnel Hill', near his old cabin home.

Leonard and Minerva were born several children, whose names I am unable to give. After his father, Nehemiah's death, the farm fell into the hands of Leonard, who later sold the farm and moved to another near Silver Hill, in Center District, Wetzel County, and from there he later moved to Wood County, on the waters of Stillwell. When Leonard left the Low Gap farm he took his mother with him. A few years later she died but the date of her death and place of interment are uncertain.
