'Molly' McLaughlin

This photo is from the collection of my mother, Florence (Shaffer) Keel, 1909-1993. Mom grew up in the Hancock area. Molly's relationship to my mother is a mystery.

Alice Crim, April 19, 2003

Note from Tom Nevlud,
Raleigh, NC:

Although there remain some unanswered questions regarding Molly McLaughlin's relationship to Florence Shaffer Keel, I am very familiar with this woman. In fact, my mother-in-law has several other pictures of her. I have tried several times to contact Ms. Crim, but with limited success. Mary McLaughlin lived most of her life across the border in nearby Wayne County, PA and Susquehanna County, PA. She is my wife's great-grandmother. Her only daughter was my wife's grandmother:
