Most of Glenn’s immigrant ancestors came to Colonial America, and many of their descendants were among the westward migrations who homesteaded and settled in the Great Plains. Both of his paternal grandparents were born on homesteads in Kansas. With strong Quaker ancestry, Glenn has researched Quaker history and records in both North America and the British Isles.
