LEONARD McGLASSON was born in Kenton County November 21, 1827. His
parents were Virginians by descent. In 1831 they moved to Grant County
and he resided with them until he was nearly of mature years, when his
parents died. Shortly after their demise Mr. McGlasson moved to Ohio,
but returned to Kentucky, settling in what is now Boone County, where
he lived until March 10, 1888, when he again returned to his first
love--old Grant County. He was a farmer and a carpenter, and when he
had business in Williamstown, very seldom used a conveyance, but "footed
it" the round trip. The walking seemed to benefit rather than injure
him, notwithstanding his advanced years. He served one term as
Magistrate in Grant County, was a true blue Democrat, and at the time
of his death was the oldest living Odd Fellow in the county. A good
citizen in every respect. Mr. McGlasson died August 2, 1898 at his
home near Mason, Ky.
