Their youngest son was Clifford Clyde McLaughlin. He was born Feb. 1, 1882 in Steuben township, Illinois. He married Emily Phoebe Clifton on March 2, 1904. They had fifteen children. The oldest, Ethel Mae was born May 28, 1904 and the youngest, Margaret Iola, was born May 28, 1927. I happen to find this odd fact quite intersting, possibly because my own birthday is May 28th. Clifford died on August 2, 1956 in Sparland, Illinois.
Child number six was my grandmother, Alice Wilda McLaughlin, born Feb. 28, 1913 in Steuben, Illinois. She came to California to take care of an ailing aunt where she met my grandfather, Chester Doran. They married on April 9 in Yuma, Arizona. She died in Colton, California on Sept. 25, 1967.

Thanks to the generosity of several relatives, I actually have a lot of information, pictures, etc. on the McLaughlins. If you're connected to this particular section of my wandering vines please contact me. I'd love to hear from you!
