I have just started research the McLaughlin branch of my family. My ggrandfather, James McLaughlin, was b. Sept. 1, 1840 in Philadelphia. The story is that his mother was pregnant with him when they came from Ireland. James died in Whitley Co., IN. I don't know when the family (or just James) moved to IN, but my grandmother was born there in 1875. He was married to Mary "Caroline" Hinen and they had 9 children. Are either of these names familiar to anyone? It is possible that James would be in the 1850 PA census. Would appreciate hearing from anyone with a connection.
