Isaac Luther and Nancy McClain Family Reunion (date unknown, but circa 1920).

Interestingly, during 1930 the Thomas Bonner McClain family submitted two (2) separate U.S. Censuses. The first was submitted on April 7 in the Welborn District of Franklin County, Georgia. The second was submitted on April 18 in the Bryants District of Franklin county, Georgia. Perhaps the family was in the midst of moving during the time of the U.S. Census.

  2. The Welborn Dist. census stated that Flossie O. McClain was 6 years old, while the Bryants Dist. census reported that she was 7 years old.
  3. The Welborn Dist. census stated that Willie Anne McClain was 3 10/12 years old, while the Bryants Dist. census reported that she was 3 9/12 years old.
