God's Mountain, McLaughlin's Valley 


Rebecca Corbett is named in the 1838 will of John McLaughlin Sr, to wit: "To Rebecca Corbit for her long and faithful services to me and my wife I give and bequeth the sum of Fifty dollars to be paid unto her by my son John out of his part of the proceeds of my land(ed) property also one saddle and bride, one sow and yearling, six head of sheep and one bed and furniture."

...In any event, Joan Kay has recently started a blog on the relevant McLaughlin clan, called McLaughlin's Valley and also wrote a historical novel about the McLaughlins called God's Mountain, McLaughlin's Valley . 

Anyone who has a interest in Mustoe Hamilton Corbett or his mother, Rebecca, probably should also have a keen interest in the family of John McLaughlin.

Rebecca Corbett is named in the 1838 will of John McLaughlin Sr, to wit: "To Rebecca Corbit for her long and faithful services to me and my wife I give and bequeth the sum of Fifty dollars to be paid unto her by my son John out of his part of the proceeds of my land(ed) property also one saddle and bride, one sow and yearling, six head of sheep and one bed and furniture."

The younger John McLaughlin is the one who eventually married Sally Wiley after the death of her first husband Mustoe Hamilton.

The senior John McLaughlin had a son Hugh who named Mustoe Hamilton Corbett in as a nephew will.

The senior John McLaughlin had another son Samuel, whose son Hugh P. McLaughlin enlisted and served with Mustoe Hamilton Corbett in the Civil War.

In any event, Joan Kay has recently started a blog on the relevant McLaughlin clan, called McLaughlin's Valley and also wrote a historical novel about the McLaughlins called God's Mountain, McLaughlin's Valley . I just received my copy in the mail today, and it is very enjoyable so far.
