Notes for Oliver O. & Mary “Mollie” J. (Family)
Rowan Co., Ky marriage book 1, p. 74, contains a bond for the marriage of Oliiver McGlothlen and Mary Morehouse, to be on 24 Feb 1885, surety by Isaac McGlothlen. Marriage register book A records the marriage twice, once on page 63 with the date 25 Feb 1885 and Oliver’s name spelled as McGlothlen, and once on p. 77 with the date 24 Feb 1885, and Oliver’s name spelled as McGlothn.
This family’s surname is seen in records as McGlothin, McGlothen, McGlothlan, McGlothlin, and McGlothlen. The McGlothlin spelling seems to be most common in early census and marriage records, but Rowan Co cemeteries contain 9 McGlothin graves and only one McGlothlin, that of Mary A. McGlothlin who died in 1883.
1900 census of Rowan Co., Ky, Brushy Fork precinct, enumerated 16 June, lists on p. 14B as family #248:
McGlothlin, Oliver, 40, b. Jan 1860, farmer; Mollie, wife, 38, b. 1862, married 16 years, mother of 11 children, 11 living; Spicy, dau, 15, b. May 1885; Lucien, dau, 13, b. Feb 1887; Omsbey, son, 10, b. May 1890; Hiram, son, 6, b. Jan 1894; Bertha, dau, 5, b. Sep 1894; Douglas, son, 4, b. Oct 1895; Necia, dau, 2, b. May 1898; Della M., dau, 1, b. Jan 1899; Moorehouse, Barney, stepson, 20, b. 1880. All born Ky Ky Ky.
The birthdates should be taken with a large grain of salt. It is highly unlikely, for example, that Hiram and Bertha were born only 8 months apart.
1910 census of Rowan Co., Ky, Pine Grove precinct, enumerated 22 April, lists on p. 4B as family #69/70:
McGloththen, Oliver O., 55, farmer; Mary J., wife, 50, second marriage for both, married 25 years, mother of 11 children, 10 living; Bertha, dau, 16; Hiram, son, 17; Oliver, son, 19; William D., son, 14; Mesa, dau, 13; Della M., dau, 11. All born Ky Ky Ky.

The grandson relationships for Luther and Homer are obviously relative to Oliver Sr. and Mary, not to the nominal head of household, who is actually their uncle.
