What’s New Wednesday ~ William McGlothlin

In browsing around the internet, I have found a bit more on the fourth child of Jemima Corel and David McGlothlin, William McGlothlin.  Previously, I had been unable to locate William beyond the 1850 census in Jackson County, Missouri1.  After some further searching for “Wm McLaughlin”, I was able to find Jemima’s missing son on the 1860 census living with the James A. Ward family in Johnson County, Kentucky2.

The fact that he is living with a Ward family intrigued me enough to dig to find the connection between this family and William’s brother-in-law, George Washington Ward and step-brother, Jonathan Ward.  George W. and Jonathan Ward are cousins, their fathers, James Whitehead Ward and Jonathan Ward respectively, were the sons of Susannah Oney and Solomon Ward.  Ironically, George W. and Jonathan Jr. are cousins from their maternal sides as well, Lucinda Meek and Melinda Meek respectively.  The mother of Lucinda and Melinda is a Judith Hylton.  Judith’s sister Levina Hylton married Shadrack Ward, brother of Solomon Ward.  Shadrack and Levina are the parents of James Apperson Ward, who has young William McGlothlin living with his family in 1860.  To try to clear this up a bit, I made the following:

Ward - McGlothlin Connections

After making this find of William McGlothlin on the 1860 census, I decided to search a bit more and see if I could find anything else.  Interestingly enough, I have found that he also fought in the Civil War, alongside his brother, Shadrack, in Company F of the 45th Kentucky Volunteer Mounted Infantry3.  Although I still have not found any proof of a marriage, nor any evidence of when William may have died, I have decided to create a page for William to share the information I have found of his service during the Civil War.  That page should be up by the end of this week!
