  1. The information regarding the Stephen Glasier papers is not correct. Stephen was the son of Benjamin and Mary (Laskey) Glasier. He was the grandson of Lieut. Benjamin and Mercy (Downs) Glasier. Lieut. Benjamin came to St. John in 1779 with his brother Stephen. There are three generations, not two.

  2. Stephen Glasier died 3 Dec 1895. His uncle Stephen died 2 May 1861, The date of he great-uncle Stephen’s death is not yet known. Stephen III’s brother Benjamin died 12 Mar 1862, his father Benjamin died 19 Mar 1849, and his grandfather Lieut. Benjamin died in Apr 1814.
