Name of creator
The McLaughlin family of Woodstock, New Brunswick, is descended from John E. McLaughlin, a dry goods and clothing dealer. John E. McLaughlin was born in Woodstock in 1849, the son of Harriet Chase and James McLaughlin (b.1864 ) and grandson of mathematician John McLaughlin of Ireland. John E. McLaughlin received a business education in Woodstock's common schools and worked as a clerk in a dry goods store. In 1876, he formed a partnership with R. B. Jones, under the business name of Jones & McLaughlin, in order to buy a dry goods business. In 1879, McLaughlin bought Jones' shares and continued to operate the mercantile establishment on his own. During his life, John McLaughlin served as Town Clerk, Town Assessor, and a member of the town council. He married Annie Maguire, whose parents were of Irish descent, and they had six children together: Bessie, Harry, Roy, Guy, Marguerite, and Anna M. John E. McLaughlin died in 1932; his wife Annie, in 1934.
Materials in the fonds were found in the McLaughlin family home on Main Street, Woodstock, New Brunswick.
