John D. is the older brother of my husband's great grandfather George Washington Laughman. We had located Daniel Laughman, Sr. in the Biographical Portrait Encyclopedia, Blair Co., PA. Born in 1797. We have information on him, but were unable to locate earlier information. Please share your sources for those who came before Daniel, Sr. We have as Daniel,Sr. sons: Christian, Daniel,Jr.,John D., and George Washington. We have some of George's Civil War papers.
