LAUGHLIN FAMILY LINE
JOHN LAUGHLIN...Born: circa 1710
possibly ome soruces say near Belfast.
ADAM LAUGHLIN:(JOHN'S brother) was born about 1698.
Have no verifiable evidence but
sources record Adam as having been married twice.
Once (and the 1st its believed by birthdates of children) to Catherine/Katherine
and the 2nd being Margaret (mnu ?)
whom he is said to have married about 1745.
Both surnames are unknown to me.
One source lists the children of Adam and Katherine as:
Janet, Katherine, John , Matthew .
>These sources also say the children of Adam and Margaret( mnu?) were:
Agnes, Isabella, Hugh, Mary, Sarah, James. Robert
According to other info I have found from varied sources,
Adam and 3 brothers(Robert, William, John)
left from Belfast,Northern Ireland abt 1723-1740
Adam then settled on land in Lancaster Co., PA,
near the Pennsylvania/Maryland line.
Adam died in 1758 on a farm there called "Reliance".
Records from PA tax assessments show a Widow Laughlin and John /
and another record shows Widow Laughlin on tax list of 1763.
According to Penn Colonial Historical Journal,
this land was later bought by Levi Brown.*
*See the Lancaster County GenWeb Project Historical Info online.
