Mary McGlothlin

Mary McGlothlin is the first child of Jemima and David McGlothlin, and the first grandchild of William and Rebecca.  She was born about 1838 in Tazewell County, Virginia.  Mary travelled 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 March 10, 1859 in Kansas City, 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.  Martha and George Washington Ward had eight children.  George Washington Ward passed away May 23, 1925 in Johnson County, Kentucky8.
