The Children of Thomas McLaughlin and Ellen Maxwell

Where did they all go?  My Grandpa, Richard J. Flanagan, used to say that his McLaughlin relatives had all left Napa, California years ago.  I do think that is a true statement.  Even my great-grandmother, Mary Elizabeth "Minnie" McLaughlin left Napa.  She moved to Monterey County to live with her daughter, Kay, after Jack passed away.  I can briefly trace the movements that I know off for this children and indicate questions where I don't know what happened.  I suspect that many of their children stuck around Northern California.  They had just all left Napa.

1.  Mary Elizabeth McLaughlin - Minnie Flanagan:
                                b.  Austin, Nevada, 17 May 1870
                                m. Napa, CA, to Jack Flanagan 1 Sep 1904
                                d.  Carmel,California, 12 Jun 1949
                               -Lived in Austin/Grass Valley, NV until 1886
                               -Lived in Napa, CA from 1886 to around 1936

                               -Lived in Austin/Grass Valley, NV until 1886
                               -Lived in Napa, CA from 1886 and at least until 1892
                               -Based on what I can find, she may have moved back to
                                 Napa from San Francisco but ended up in San Fran.

3.  Catherine W. McLaughlin - Katie McLaughlin:
                                b.  Austin, Nevada, 10 Dec 1874

                                  him living in Sacramento County

Except for Catherine, all of these McLaughlin siblings were married and had children.  I believe many of the children also lived in Northern California.  If any of the descendants of this line would like to share information about their ancestors, feel free to email me at  I do have some additional information for this family unit.
