It appears that John K. McLaughlin was the son of James and Catherine J. (Scott) McLaughlin of Princeton, Washington, Maine. James was born about 1828 in New Brunswick, Canada.

Flora was the daughter of M. C. and Julia V. McLaughlin of Chapman. Other censuses show that "M. C." was actually Elmer C. McLaughlin. Elmer was the son of Thomas and Abby S. (Hoyt) McLaughlin of Weld, Franklin, Maine. Thomas was born about 1815 in Maine, and his McLaughlin roots trace back to New Hampshire.

I don't see any close family connection between these two McLaughlin families, though there could be a connection back a few more generations.
