I'm looking for any information about a John McGuffin who married a Nancy McLaughlin in Virginia (or West Virginia) around 1840. I know nothing about him except that he fathered only surviving one child, John Wesley McGuffin, in 1844 in Virginia (or West Virginia). By 1850 his wife Nancy had remarried to a William Wiseman and was living in Augusta Co., VA. His mother Nancy was herself the granddaughter of Thomas McGuffin and Jane Templeton by way of their daughter Polly who married a Joseph McLaughlin in Rockbridge Co., Va in 1821. The elder John McGuffin however is a complete mystery. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
