I am researchinginformationon the McLaughlin family from Midland, Ontario, Canada and originally from Ireland.The family names I am looking for are McLaughlin, Lindop, Hamilton and Behan.My Grandfather was James Francis Mclaughlin born in Stoney Creek, Ont. Can. in 1864 and died January 1930. He was the son of John McLaughlin who was born in Downspatrick County, Ireland and his mother was Margaret Hamilton from Strabane, County Tyrone, Ireland..From the little information I have received handed down from family letters., I believe that John McLaughlin and Margaret Hamilton were born in the 1820's and moved to Canada from Ireland in the 1840's. I don't know if they met in Ireland or Canada or where they were married. James McLaughlinmarried 3 timeswith his first two wives preceding him in death.His second wife, My Grandmother, was May Lindop.Her Parents were Arthur Lindop who was born in England and died in Canada in 1932.Her mother was Maria Behan who was born in Ireland and died in Canada in 1935.James Mclaughlin ( to the best of my knowledge) hadthree brothers: Constantine, George and Jack (John) and three sisters:Susan, Minnie and Margaret. Any information about this part of my family tree would be greatly appreciated . I would be willing to share any of the information I have.
