McGlaughlin family - PA, MD, NY, NJ, VA
I'm trying to find any info on the parents and siblings of John McGlaughlin who was born April 7, 1819 in Marcus Hook, Delaware Co., PA.
He later married Mary Ann Mayfield in 1848, same area.
Mary Ann & her sister were orphaned on their trip over to America.Their parents died and were buried at sea.They were from England.
Mary Ann was found a home with a preacher, who lived in the Marcus Hook area, Rev. Joseph Walker.He was the preacher that later married John & Mary Ann.
Rev. Joseph Walker died in 1870 in Allegheny City County, PA at the home of his son-in-law, Dr. M.R. Trevor.
John & Mary Ann's first child, Joseph Walker McGlaughlin was born in Marcus Hook on January 22, 1849.
They left Delaware County after that.
John McGlaughlin was said to have had a brother named Joseph.I don't know whether he was younger or older than John.

The last child, Alezandria Shriver, male, mostly went by his middle name, though on the 1880 census, he was listed by his first name.Shriver's first name was spelled as it is above in the family bible, though our family believes it was supposed to be Alexander.
John drowned in the Potomac River in 1872, two years after Shriver was born.Mary Ann remarried in 1875 to Isaac J. Cooper.They married in Wicomico Co., MD.They later moved to the Wicomico District, Northumerland Co., VA, where Mary Ann died in 1883.
