i am looking for details of James Mclaughlin (grandfather) born around 1875 in ireland, probably Derry or Strabane area. His mother was Grace Mclaughlin and she may have been a single mother or widow.(If she WAS married her maiden name was also Mclaughlin). James married Eleanor Kilgore in the waterside 1899. The Kilgore family were from Sherriffs Mountain area of Derry. Eleanors parents Samuel and Mary ( Tinny). I can trace the Kilgore side but can't even get a start with the Mclaughlin side.
