Joseph M. McGlothlin
Mr. Joseph M. McGlothlin answers the final summons and goes to his reward. News of the sudden death of Mr. Joseph M. McGlothlin which occurred about noon Sunday, February 17, at the home of his son Mr. E. L. McGlothlin, was quite a shock to the family and the community as he was apparently in his usual good health, and were unaware of it until apprised of the end. Mr. McGlothlin was a man of deep conviction and a high sense of honor, strictly adhering to his own affairs, and his passing will be regretted by all who knew him. He is survived by one brother, Mr. W. T. McGlothlin of this place, and two sons, Mr. E. L. McGlothlin with whom he made his home, and Mr. W. S. McGlothlin of Berkley, California. His brother, Mr. J. K. P. McGlothlin preceeded him to the grave by only ten days. Funeral services were conducted at the Christian Church by Rev. W. L. Karnes, and the body laid to rest in the city cemetery.
