Ref: Brief Sketch of Glisson Families  in Mississippi- By Phillip L. Glisson

Thomas Glisson b. 1820 MA listed in Jackson Co. MS in 1850 Census. He was listed with his family in 1860 and 1870 census in Mobile Co. AL. His widow listed in 1880 census in Mobile Co. AL. In MS records his family used the Glisson spelling but in Alabama they used Gleeson, Gleason, Glisten, and Glison. I am not sure if he was actually a Glisson or Gleason and am not sure who his parents were or where he came from. I have included his family with the Alabama Glisson families.

James Livingston Glisson or Levin Glisson b. 1813-1819 in S. C., N. C., GA or AL. I have not located Levin in any 1850 Census. In 1860 and 1880 he was listed as born in SC. In 1870 listed as born in NC. Earlier researchers thought he might be the Levin Glisson who bought items at estate sale of Elisha Vinson in 1837 in Stewart Co. GA. No other records have been found on this Levin Glisson thus the assumption. Also there was a 1841 Old Sparta & Elba Records & Military Warrants there was a Levin Glisson of Dale Co. AL listed. This would suggest that he was related to Lewis Glisson & Nice Garras who married 1798 in Duplin Co. NC. Lewis came to Dale Co. AL from Duplin Co. NC. Above is a mortality record for Caroline Glisson age 78 died Dec of 1869 in Smith Co. making her born abt 1792? The right age to be Levins mother. Levin's family is the only other Glissons in Smith Co. I would say she is definitely his mother but who was his father is still unknown.  In 1840 Dale Co. AL Lewis Glisson Jr. is listed with wife 40-50. Some researchers have suggested that Lewis was in Stewart Co. GA for a brief period? Also in Mississippi Confederate Rosters Levin listed as born in Sumpter Co. AL. This might suggest he was connected to Nathaniel Glisson of Sumpter Co. AL instead. He may have been a son of Joseph Glisson & Martha Bowen of Bullock & Tattnall Co. GA. Thus the confusion as to parents of Levin or where he was born. He left many descendants in the area of Smith Co. MS. His family is detailed in the following family sketches.

Patrick Glisson or Glissen b. 1813-1814 in Logan Co. Ky or Scotland. The articles in the book "History of Tippah County" stated that Patrick was born in Scotland and stowed away on a ship bound to America when he was 10 by himself. It also listed him as being William Patrick Glissen marrying Emily Ash in NC in 1842 and coming to Mcnairy Co. TN in the 1850's and to Tippah Co. abt 1860. I have found a lot of errors to this and would like to offer some alternative ideas as to parents and place of birth of Patrick. 1st I have not found any record that says he was William Patrick instead just Patrick. In records he was listed as Glisson & Glissen. The article shows a picture of Patrick and his brother about age 30-45 so he did not come to Tippah county alone. I believe Patrick was Patrick Glisson and Tippah County and record keepers just spelled the name with "e" instead of "o". Then the family carried that spelling on until today. Fact Patrick Glisson bought land in Tippah County, MS in 1841 well before 1860 like article stated. Then he was listed in McNairy Co. TN, which borders Tippah Co. MS in the 1850 Census, did not arrive in 1850's like article said. Fact he was listed in 1860 and 1870 Census in Tippah Co. MS but I could not find him or wife in 1880. His widow Emily lived with son John R. in 1900 census which contradicts her dieing in 1870's. In all 3 census records that Patrick was listed he stated that he was born in KY not Scotland. Fact he named a son Malachi F. Glisson who went by Malachi Fikes Glissen. I believe that Patrick was son of Henry Glisson & 2nd wife Elizabeth Fikes who married in 1795 in Logan Co. KY. Fact Elizabeth dau of Malachi Fikes. Henry had brother Patrick who lived close to him in Logan Co. KY, thus Patrick of Tippah Co. MS named after his uncle & or ggfather. I believe that Henry & this Patrick were sons or grandsons of Henry Glisson wife Charity O'Quin of Northampton and Bertie Co. NC. Charity dau of Patrick O'Quin. Henry & his brother Patrick went to Robertson Co. TN 1810-1819. Henry left will naming a son Patrick b. abt 1813. I originally place Patrick Glissen as son of Henry & Elizabeth Fikes Glisson but have now taken him off because of the book of the History of Tippah Co. Check the records for Henry Glisson family of KY and TN on my webpage. I believe Patrick was born abt 1813 in Logan Co. KY and bought land and married in or around Tippah Co. MS in 1841 stayed a couple years then went to McNairy Co. TN for a few years then back to Tippah Co. MS. 2nd & 3rd children born in TN, 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th born in MS. So not to offend writers of the "History of Tippah County" I will not include Patrick with Henry & Elizabeth Fikes family until more proof is found. His family is detailed in the following family sketches.

John Glisson b. 1845 TN. John listed in 1920 Census in Clarke Co. MS as father of George F. Glisson. John was son of George W. Glisson & Harriett Flowers of Gibson Co. TN. John's family can be found in the Glisson families of TN.
