Mary McGlothlin

Mary McGlothlin is the first child of Jemima Corel and David McGlothlin.  She was born about 1838 in Tazewell County, Virginia.  Mary traveled with her parents and extended family to Jackson County, Missouri.  After her mother died, Mary moved back to Johnson County, Kentucky with her father and siblings.

Just over a year after her father remarried, Mary married a nephew of her new step-mother, George Washington Ward.  Wash, or Cubby, as he was often called, was born on February 8, 1833 in Lawrence, Kentucky to James Whitehead Ward and Lucinda Meek.  The couple was married on August 31, 1854 in Johnson County, Kentucky1.

Children

  1. David Ward was born September 25, 1855 in Johnson County, Kentucky2.
  2. James Ward was born about July 1859, possibly in Missouri3.

Family legend is that the Ward’s moved to Missouri, where Mary died in 1860.  “Wash” then returned with his children to the Big Sandy Valley, where his mother, Lucinda, helped raise the young boys4.

David and James are found living with their grandparents in Johnson County, Kentucky on the 1860 census5.  In 1870 David and James are living with their father, George W., their grandmother, Lucinda, and probably a cousin, Lucinda Gillum in Toms Creek, Johnson County, Kentucky6.  July 29, 1875 George Washington Ward remarried Martha Wolfe in Johnson County, Kentucky7, but nothing further is found on Mary McGlothlin Ward’s children, David and James.
