Robert McLAUGHLIN

Robert McLAUGHLIN married two RUSMISEL girls. First he married Martha Melvinia RUSMISEL, daughter of Christian RUSMISEL, and they had (at least) 9 children. Then he married her niece, Mary Lydia Virginia RUSMISEL, daughter of George B. RUSMISEL, son of Christian. They had (at least) 5 children.

In Nov. 1888 Martha and George's sister Miriam had a lawsuit that named the children at that time of her sister Martha:
Children of Martha Rusmisel McLaughlin (deceased): Bessie E., Mariam M., William C., Martha A., Mary C., Bertha F., Robert L., George C., Bersa

I was able to find them all on the Censuses except Bersa. I am guessing that Miriam M is Mary M on the Censuses and and Nebraska E is probably Bessie E.

Robert and Martha married 2 Oct 1866 in Augusta County, Virginia.
