My gg grandfather was Samuel D McLaughlin.Family Bible records, a newspaper obituary record, and his widow`s pension application from War of 1812 all indicate that he was born in York Co. PA in 1799. He moved as a young man to TN, then TX. In he 40+ years that I have been researching I have not been able to find his parents. My main problem is another McLaughlin family in the same area. I can eliminate them because they also have a Samuel who still lived there after my Samuel was in TN. I know that my Samuel had brothers John, William, and David. Any help would be appreciated.
