Rev. H.M. McLaughlin /Laughlin officiated at the following (Black) Monroe County marriages:
Thomas Tyler & Malinda Smith, 1/11/1898 at the Colored Baptist Church at Alderson
(on this entry his name appeared to be McLaughlin)
& he officiated at the following (Black) Summers County marriages:
am Taylor & Bettie Wilson, 4/27/1900
(on this entry his name appeared to be Laughlin)
There were McLaughlin families in the area. I don't have any Laughlin families so I am guessing that his name is McLaughlin.
