Focusing my search
I’ve noticed that I’ve bounced around lately on the brickwalls that I have, while trying to neatly avoid the biggest pink elephant in my sight: John and Phebe Newton Laughlin….my 3x great grandparents.
You see, all I have is his date of birth: 1770. From the Laughlin family Bible.
Their marriage date: 1794
Death dates and states are unknown. Through census records, I’ve been able to find out what Granville, their youngest child, was born in Kentucky. Through Southwest Louisiana Records, I’ve been able to verify that Granville’s parents’ names were John and Phebe Newton Laughlin.
