pg 88- "Rear Admiral Oliver S. Glisson, United States Navy, was a schoolboy in Brookville as long ago as 1823 and 1824. His father was a settler in the eastern part of the township, and on account of the scarcity of school facilities there, and for other reasons, Oliver was permitted to make his home with Dr. David Oliver, of Brookville. In a recent letter to Dr. George S. Berry, he gives his services and promotions in detail. From this letter the following extracts are taken. "Born in Ohio; appointed midshipman from Indiana, 1 Nov 1826, 1st cruise in the sloop John Adams, West India 1827-28, sloop Falmouth, same squadron, 1829-30, schooner Gampus, same squadron, 1831-32, promoted to past midshipman 4 Jun 1832" Then follows the services record through the long years before, during, and since the Civil War; the letter concludes thus; "I was commissioned as Rear Admiral June 1870, and ordered to command the European Fleet. This was one of the most important commands, as France and Prussia were at war at the time. I continued in that command until peace was made, and in the meantime I arrived at the age of 62, when the law retires all Naval Officers." My appointment was obtained through the influence of Gen. James Noble, Judge Test, father of the present Judge Test of Indianapolis, also Governor Ray, Judge Mckemmy and Judges Mount & Fox, which I have always felt grateful for. I had many young friends in Brookville, Monroe & Franklin McCarty, John Test and Edward Test, Charles Shipley and Edward Shipley and 54 years have rolled round and I have never seen but one of those, my school companions, except Samuel Shipley, and if living nothing would give me pleasure than to see any of them."
pg 91- Minutes of the Little Cedar Baptist Church, excerpts, " This church was constituted in Springfield Township on 13 Sep 1817 with 13 members. Immediately after the constitution, the church organized for business by the appointment of Elder Deweese as Moderator. One month later after the organization the church met and appointed Jabez Winship as Moderator. Charity Merrills, Rebecca Glisson, Peggy Blew, and Sarah Jones were received by letter."

Brief Description of Glisson Families in Indiana-

Joseph Glisson b. 1810 in IN or PA d. 1860-70 m. 8 Nov 1843 in Hancock Co. IN to Catherine Ruley. Joseph left descendants in Hancock Co. IN and others may have scattered to other states. Issue: Mary Anne, William F., Saba Jane, Timothy, Martin V.B., Joseph Marshall, Amanda E., Sarah F. and Margaret.

John Scott Glisson son of Thomas Glisson & Rebecca Runyan of Hamilton Co. OH b. 1819 in Franklin Co. IN, d. 1858 in Hamilton Co. OH m. 1843 in Franklin Co. IN to Mary Case. After John's death his widow Mary moved with their children back to Franklin Co. IN. Many of their descendants still live in the Franklin Co. IN area.

There were others listed using various Glisson spelling in the Indiana census records but I believe they were not actually Glissons.

Following is what I have on Joseph Glisson family of Hancock Co. IN to date. The family of John Scott Glisson which is my line can be found in the Ohio Glisson Families.
