2.  1810 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #21 of 58; official enumeration date 6 Aug 1810; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1810 SC Abbeville Co. Abbeville Roll 60 p. 47 Ln. 7 James Glasgo 00100-00100-00
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 16-25 1784-1794 = James (b. 1785) or James Thomas (b. 1788)
1 female 16-25 1784-1794 = Mary (b. 1792) or Margaret Anne (b. 1793
There should be two young married James GLASGOWs in Abbeville, but I only find one, and this record could apply to either one.  Listed next to William & Ann (MORROW) THOMPSON and ten lines from John GLASGO.

3.  1820 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #13 of 67; official enumeration date 7 Aug 1820; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1820 SC Abbeville Co. Abbeville Roll M33_118 p. 15 Ln. 30 James Glasgow 100010-30010-0-100 no slaves
These data indicate:

1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = John (b. 1818)

3 females 9 or under 1810-1820 = Nancy (b. 1815/6)

= Elizabeth (b. 1812)
1 female 26-44 1775-1794 = Mary (b. 1792)
1 person engaged in agriculture
Listed next to James Thomas GLASCOW (b. 1788), who is enumerated as the "senior" one, yet he's younger than our subject, and the children "fit" better if I make James Thomas the senior one.  Or does it actually say, "Junr"?  It's not exactly clear.

4.  1830 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #48 of 56 indexed "Glassendy" and "Gassow"; official enumeration date 1 Jun 1830; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1830 IL Randolph Co. Roll M19_22 p. 154 Ln. 14 James Glascow 001 001 - 011 101
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 10-14 1815-1820 = John (b. 1818)
1 male 30-39 1790-1800 = James (b. 1785)
1 female 5-9 1820-1825 = Daughter A
1 female 10-14 1815-1820 = Nancy (b. 1815/6)
1 female 15-19 1810-1815 = Mary (b. ca. 1813)
= Elizabeth (b. 1812)
1 female 30-39 1790-1800 = Mary (b. 1792)
I hate to attribute so much to enumerator error, but surely this is our subject.  Maybe this enumerator just didn't care if he got it right.

5.  1840 U.S. Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #39-40 of 84; official enumeration began 1 Jun 1840; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

These data indicate: data indicate:

1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = John (b. 1818)
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = hired help? kin?
1 male 50-59 1780-1790 = James (b. 1785)

2 persons employed in agriculture
1 person employed in manufactures and trades
Daughter Nancy is married and gone, but John and Mary are not, so we find them still at home.

6.  1850 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #9 of 11):  Town 5 South Range 7 West [T5S.R7W], Randolph Co., IL, Roll M432_125, p. 110B, 1668/1678, enumerated 8 Nov 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
James Glasgow 65 M   Farmer 100 SC
Mary     " 45 F       "
Mary Findley 37 F       "
James Findley  4 F       Ill
Either Mary GLASGOW is telling a whopping fib about her age, or James has remarried (I don't find such a marriage record).  Mary (GLASGOW) FINDLEY's husband is listed three households away.
