Seeking additional information on James McLAUGHLIN (B CA 1810) and Eliza KING? (B CA 1814). They were the parents of Harvey Joseph McLAUGHLIN b ca 1828. James and Eliza may have come from Augusta Co., VA. They went to Xenia, Greene Co., OH for a time and then came back to WV. In 1880 they were living in Summers Co., with their daughter, Amanda E. who had married Archibald BUTT. Other children of James and Eliza (KING) McLAUGHLIN are: Charles b 1832, John b 1837. Other lines I am interested in Greenbrier are: Tyree BRYANT/Elizabeth SHEPHERD, Jacob NICHOLAS/Elizabeth HINKLE, Jacob HINKLE/Mary WILLIAMS, William McMILLION/ Betsey PERKINS, Joseph Henry YATES/Louise PETTRY.
