Assistance is being sought in identifying any individuals in this picture. This family portrait is believed to be derived from the lineage of Robert Thomas McGlocklin, 8/22/1848-8/24/1908. The matriarch and patriarch in the picture may be Robert McGlockin's grandparents or parents. Robert McGlocklin was married to Sarah Francis (Foster) McGlocklin 9/11/1849-3/21/1933. The children and grandchildren of Robert and Sarah lived in (or in close proximity to) Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky. This picture has been passed on to later generations within the ancestral line of the McGlocklin family.
