In 1791, while he was still serving as Secretary of State, the state legislature named a county after him. He resigned in disgrace after a scandal known as the "Glasgow Land Fraud." After his resignation, the county was renamed Greene County.
His daughter, Nancy Glasgow, married Willoughby Williams, a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, and later remarried to Joseph McMinn, who served as Governor of Tennessee from 1815 to 1821.
