John W? McAllister (Abt 1840,NY - ?poss MA)

Surnames: McAllister McLaughlin
Born in New York, NY, parents (unknown) born in Ireland. Found a possible Navy enlistment record(NY) for 1863. Married to Catharine V. or S.? McLaughlin, born Abt Jan 1844 in Boston, MA; her parents (John/Bridget) born Ireland. She died 3 Nov 1874 in Boston after childbirth.
They had 5 children - Lillian C. McAllister Bieler Murphy, Effie Gertrude McAllister Bailey; Warren F. McAllister; Herbert Chester McAllister & Mary who died shortly after birth.
John was a Mississippi riverboat captain for a time & a carpenter.
I found the family in the 1870 federal census in Boston & in the 1880 census the children are living with a Mary Fox.
I've been unable to take either the McAllister or the McLaughlin family line back any further - very frustrating because Catharine McLaughlin is my 3rd G-Grandmother & my Mitochondrial DNA line!
Any help or suggestions appreciated!
