I have been trying to sort out the Glenn family of Delaware and MD. I have found three documents that mention the Dushane name:

18 Oct 1763 will of Thomas Glenn New Castle: Upon petition of Michael Dushane, Mary Glenn, administrators of all and singular the goods chattels and credits which were of Thomas Glenn, late of this county, shopkeeper, etc. two tracts of land in Red Lion Hundred near town of St. George, one tract on plantation containing 140 acres and the other 100 acres. Said Thomas Glenn hath issue two children, a daughter and a son, the eldest now being about the age of six years, etc. praying the court to grant them an order to sell the realestate to discharge debts.

1 Feb 1764- Michael Dushane and Mary Glenn of Newcastle, administrators of Thomas Glenn, late of Red Lion Hundred, shopkeeper, dec'd. Whereas Glenn in his life time was seized of sundry parcels of land and also possessed goods, chattels, rights and credits and at his death administration was given by William Till, register of probate-personal estate taken and accounts not sufficient to pay debts...permission to sell land in St. George's Hundred to John Dushane. Witness George Clark.

4 Jan 1781 will of Mary Glenn N.C. Hundred 5 Feb 1781 - Mary Glenn names brother Thomas Glenn; uncle John Kittle (dec'd), relation Mary Dushane, Exc. brother, Thomas Glenn

Do you have any idea how the Dushane family connects to the Glenns? Could Mary Glenn have been Mary Dushane Glenn or perhaps one of Mary Glenn's children married a Dushane?
