Inscription.
Born to this union, six children, John Pressely gave the land for Liberty Hill Church. The first church was logs. Sallie McClimon married Jeremiah Glenn. They gave most of the money to build the first frame building. A committee asked Sallie Glenn to let the church be named Glenns Chapel. She was not seeking honor and did not agree. June 19, 1980 relatives moved the Glenns from the family plot to Liberty Hill Church beside her father and mother Hugh Porter and Jane McClimon.
