     Charles E. Troxell founded the funeral home in Glasgow, Pennsylvania in 1890.  It was located opposite the old cemetery and next to the Mt. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church.  Charles E. Troxell was in the General Store and Mercantile business.  In 1895 his brother Christopher Jay Troxell became interested in the business and went to the United States Embalming College in Chicago, Illinois.  C. Jay Troxell took over the entire operation when his brother was elected Prothonatary of Cambria County.
     C. Jay Troxell and his son Harold G. owned and operated the General Store and Funeral Business in Glasgow until Harold's untimely death March 14, 1956.  C. Jay died in Glasgow on August 2, 1962.  A son, Russell L. Troxell, joined the firm in 1956 and in the later years, after the death of his father C. Jay Troxell, the name of the funeral home became the Russell L. Troxell Funeral Home.  On November 1, 1973 Russell sold the funeral business and real estate to Robert R. and Jewell (Hubbard) Plass, Jr., licensed funeral directors from Owego, New York.  The Plass Funeral Home in Glasgow continued a long line of funeral service in northern Cambria County and neighboring areas in Clearfield County. 
     On May 15, 1985, Robert R. and Jewell (Hubbard) Plass, Jr. sold the funeral business and the real estate on which the funeral home stands to Funeral Director Charles J. McQuown of Ramey, Pennsylvania and his wife, Lesley Renee (Jackson) McQuown, the business being renamed as the Plass-McQuown Funeral Home.  On January 1, 1987 the business became, and has since, been named the McQuown Funeral Home  and continues a long line of funeral service.  Charlie, Renee and their three daughters Adrienne, Ashlee and Aubrie continue to live in the Glasgow area.
