Notes: Apparently this was a well-to-do family since W.C. Greer's 1876 Grimes County probate papers indicate at 
death W.C. Greer owned over 10,000 acres of land spread across four counties, 2,000 head of cattle, 200 horse, one steam engine, etc.

S. Glenn Greer's younger brother, Crawford Greer, was my great grandfather. I think Crawford may have named his oldest son (my grandfather), Glenn Napolian Greer, after his big brother. November 1874 must have been a sad time in the W.C. Greer home in Navasota, Texas.
