The United Empire Loyalist Settlement at Long Point, Lake Erie
Chapter LXV. Glover

Jacob Glover was a merchant of Newtown, Connecticut. On the outbreak of the war he served as a sergeant in Lord Rawdon’s command. In 1770 he was sent to Long Island in a boat in command of eight soldiers to capture Major-General Sillman. The American general was captured easily, for he was alone and comparatively defenceless. On returning to the mainland they found Colonel Simcoe, of the Queen’s Rangers, waiting for them, who called out, Have you got him?” Answer “Yes.” “Have you lost any men?” “No.” “That is well,” answered Simcoe, “your Sillmans are not worth a man, nor your Washingtons.”

Sergeant Glover settled in Windham about 1810, where he was given Government land. His son, John, was given land in both Windham and Zorra townships.
