>Dear Sirs,
>I have been tracing my family tree for a birthday present for my
>father..  William Burnett Beaton McLaughlin.  The Scottish side of
>the family seemed easy by comparison to the irish side..  My great
>grandfather came from Coleraine or so I have been told. John
>McLaughlin he married an Isabella Cassidy.  This would have been
>around 1850 onwards.  I have conflicting information regarding my
>grandfather Daniel McLaughlin - I know that he was born around
>1884/5  some say he was Irish others say he was Scottish.  (Still
>under investigation)  An elderly relative states " the family came
>to Coleraine around 1745 after leaving Scotland, the settled married
>and came back to Scotland around 1900's"  The only other info I have
>is that I believe John had a brother Bernard -  I think that he came
>to Scotland around 1850 married - no family and died before
>1910.  Daniel lived with him from 1901 until 1920 when he
>married.  I would love to hear from anyone researching the McLaughlin family !
>  -  As stated the Scottish side was easy by comparison and I have
> over 200 names on my grandmothers side of the family dating back to
> 1744 at the moment.  I would be willing to share this information
> if there was any connection with any McLaughlins on your side......
> My dad's only brother was John after his grandfather, so the only
> male names I have are William, John, Daniel and Bernard.  There
> could also be a connection with the Rafferty/Raverty family, if
> that is a clue.  If you have any hints or details please do not
> hesitate to contact me.
>Thanks for your time......
