The Descendants of Thomas McLaughlin - Part 5

Patrick's oldest child was Elizabeth McLaughlin. She married Patrick Duffy in Newport, NY and moved onto Montello, WI, to raise her family. Her sister Rose Ann McLaughlin and husband, Patrick Reardon, must have been in the Montello, WI, location first. I see them having their first child there in 1851. Elizabeth's and Rose's cousin, Thomas Newman McLaughlin, also moved his wife, Ellen Daley, and family to Montello, WI. In fact, they were all there by 1855 when two McLaughlin children were born to Elizabeth and Thomas, each.

At this point, I do feel like I've got the story straight for the McLaughlin's but what about the Duffy's? I have Philip Duffy (b. 1833) married to Catherine Maxwell in Napa, CA. I have Patrick Duffy (b. 1817) married to Elizabeth McLaughlin in Montello, WI. In the middle connecting these families by marriage, is Catherine Maxwell's sister, Ellen Maxwell, married to Thomas Michael McLaughlin who was a cousin of Elizabeth McLaughlin of Montello. Were Philip and Patrick brothers? They all filtered through the Irish Settlement in Newport, New York. I am 99% certain of that. Also, another McLaughlin researcher advised me that the Duffy family of Newport, NY who immigrated from Ireland was quite large. They had many children. I wonder if a Duffy researcher already figured this one out. It is rather interesting. The possibility of this full connection would mean Newport, NY, Montello, WI, and Napa, CA, have more than just McLaughin's in common. There could be quite a few McLaughlin's, Maxwell's, and Duffy's all related to one another for these locations.

Another daughter of Patrick McLaughlin was Mary Ann McLaughlin who was married to Hugh Joseph Gartland. Hugh Joseph was my great-great-great (G3) grandmother's, Mary Ellen Gartland McLaughlin, brother. Mary Ann McLaughlin was my great-great-great grandfather's, James McLaughlin (married to Mary Ellen Gartland), cousin. Again, I really love these connections. They can get confusing but for now I have those family ties straight in my mind.

Another tidbit that I noticed along the way is about Hannah Gartland. She was a schoolteacher, school superintendent, college dean and a mystery writer. She is the third child of Mary Ann McLaughlin and Hugh Joseph Gartland. It would be fun to try and locate one of her novels.
