Margaret was the wife of Thomas McLaughlin (1809-1891), whom she married on April 11, 1833 in Knox Co., Ohio, and with whom she had nine children. Thomas died about seven months after Margaret and was buried next to her in Eden Cemetery. Margaret and Thomas were the grandparents of Eva Flora McLaughlin (1863-1899), who married Samuel L. Beeney (1857-1929). Eva and Samuel were the parents of George Benton Beeney (1890-1970), the biological father of my paternal great grandmother, Maxine Elizabeth (Davis-Kernan) Smith (1912-1992).
