      On the road to Ashville, fifteen miles from Monticello, lies one of the beauty spots of Jefferson County. The name, Glendower, was given to this plantation by John Finlayson, whose father was Daniel Finlayson from Scotland, who, when a boy of eighteen years, came to America in 1800. Daniel settled in South Carolina and married Christiana McRae, also a native of Scotland, whose family had emigrated to America. In 1810, his oldest son, John, was born. In 1818, the family moved to Telfair County, Georgia, near Cape Fear River, and Daniel turned his attention to farming, especially stock-raising, and was noted for his neatness in the management of his farm. He died very soon after settling in Georgia. His wife was a religious woman, of great physical energy and intellectual vigor. She was very ambitious to have her three children educated. They attended school in a primitive log structure, and, though the instruction gained there may have contributed to their knowledge, it could not compare to the intellectual acquirements gained at their own fireside. In the planting season, John helped with the labors of the farm, and during the rest of the year, he attended school. He was as full of ambitious plans, as his mother, and at fifteen years of age, he took charge of a small school, which he taught long enough to discover his inaptitude for teaching. His next venture was in the mercantile business. By 1829 he had a business of his own, and in ten years he was worth thirty five thousand dollars. He had always cherished a desire to be a planter, and in 1839 he possessed the requisite amount to purchase a plantation, and chose Florida as his future home.

      He bought a fine tract of land, a sufficient number of slaves and implements to do the laborious work, thus beginning to realize the fulfillment of his hopes. In 1842, he married Florida Augusta Shehee, a daughter of a very early settler of Jefferson County, Judge A. B. Shehee. A most attractive home was built, beautified by the wonderful setting of moss-draped live oaks, and other native trees. The interior sheltered graceful pieces of antique furniture and exquisite oil portraits of his five children; John Jr., Augusta, Mary, Virginia and Daniel Aylesbury.
