Bessie Mae Arter formerly McLaughlin aka Singer


The next few posts will be the children of Samuel McLaughlin. Samuel is one of my third great grandfathers on my paternal side. There are a lot of children so I guess I commited myself to a lot of posts. I do the posts after I re-research each person. My tree has some of the basics but not enough to get close enough to tell any kind of story. One of my biggest issues is I have no stories from my family. Mostly my father's side is hidden. My two half siblings although aware I exist do not share much. My brother did give me enough information to find our father's father and back.
