McGlothlin Family

David and Robert Emmitt McGlothlin may or may not be connected to John McLaughlin and Judith Leathers, but so much research has been done in an attempt to prove or disprove a connection, which I am unable to do either, I thought it might be beneficial for some if I posted the information I had found.

According to family legend, Judith was born in Wales about 1763 and lived to be 109 years old, dying about 1872 in Sandy Hill, Russell County, Virginia.  Judith and John had thirteen children.

        Mary Anna Ratliff was a daughter born to Robert and Louvina in 1869 in Virginia3.  Mary Anna married Henry Jefferson Spence, grandson of Jemima Corel and David McGlothlin.

As you can see, there are still three children unaccounted for.  I suspect that they were most likely born between Nancy (1801) and David (1811).
