All three of Reuben's children appear to have died young. George before the age of 13. Lewis lived for a time at the Willard Asylum for the Insane and I believe died before he was 30. I've already written of the sad end of daughter, Alice at the age of 27. Unless Lewis had a child there were no other desendants of Reuben and Charlotte Glover.
1815 - Reuben E Glover was born Dec 22 in Phelps, Ontario, New YorkHe was the son of David Glover and Tamesin Hall. His date and place of birth come from unverified family records. David Glover is found on both the 1810 & 1820 census records of Phelps.
1826 - The Glover family relocates to Orleans County, New York.This date is based on a biography of Hannah L Glover Carlisle, Reuben's youngest sister. In 1830 David Glover was found in Gaines, Orleans, New York with one male age 10-15, assumed to be Reuben.
1840 - So far I have not located him.

1878 - Suspension Bridge, Niagara, New YorkNiagara Falls Gazette, Wednesday, February 20, 1878
FIRE.- The building known as the Red Slaughter House, near Suspension Bridge, was destroyed by fire Saturday evening. The premises were owned by W. E. Shaffer, who had the building stored with about forty tons of baled hay ready for shipment, a quantity of straw, three hundred newly made apple barrels, a quantity of grain, some fruit, a valuable hay press, a pair of standard scales, new, and a stationary engine for running the press. The barrels belonged to a cooper named Glover. There was no insurance on them. Shaffer’s loss is largely covered by insurance. It is thought that the fire had an incendiary origin.
1880 - Suspension Bridge, Niagara, New York.Reuben, Charlotte and Alice appear on the index for Suspension Bridge, Niagara, New York. Lewis was found in the Willard Asylum for the Insane, Romulus, Seneca, New York, age 25 Coper [sic]
c. 1880-1887 Death of son Lewis Edward Glover.Alice's obituary says she was the "only living daughter," since she was the only daughter my working theory is that what was meant was that she was the only living child. In 1900 Charlotte was recorded as having no living children.
1886 - Alice Glover sells property in Niagara Falls.Gold and silver coins were subsequently found on the property and a lawsuit ensued. Based on the fact that her personal estate was valued at $1,000 in 1870, my best guess is that the property was given to her by her uncle, Lewis E Glover.
1887 - Alice E Glover is married and dies Nov 10.Sick with typhoid fever, Alice's Baptism, Marriage and Death all occurred on the same day. She was married to Mr. Chase, nowhere in the articles is his first name mentioned. She was said to be the "Only surviving daughter of Mr and Mrs R E Glover." She was buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Niagara Falls, New York.
1887 ? - Death of Reuben E Glover.I have not found an obituary for him and find that strange. Perhaps the edition of the paper I need was not filmed or the OCR program simply has not found it. The date I have comes from family records.
