From Saigon to Boston
Mary Baker Eddy's great-great-great-grandson discovers who she was.
Last December, The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity welcomed two very special visitors: the great-great-great-grandson of Mary Baker Eddy, George Washington Glover VI, and his wife, Holly Glover, who had come to Boston for the first time to see The Mother Church and find out about George's ancestry. George's great-great-great-grandfather, George Washington Glover, was Mary Baker Eddy's first husband, who died within the first year of their marriage.
I sat down with George and Holly to talk about the winding path that brought them from Shanghai, China, to Boston, and to the Library that honors the life and work of his famous progenitor. As might be expected, I began by asking where George was born.
George Glover: Saigon, Viet Nam, on November 23, 1969. My dad was in the army there and met my mom during one of his tours. He later came back as a civilian to work for a marine transportation company. He married my mom, and I was born. About a year later, we moved to Singapore.
