Susan Boyle...A McLaughlin?

One of my favorite Maxwell/McLaughlin researchers emailed me the other day with some interesting anecdotal information.  A relative received a copy of Susan Boyle's autobiography for Christmas.  As everyone probably knows, Susan Boyle was the winner of the 2009 Britain's Got Talent.

In her autobiography, she mentions that her mother's maiden name is McLaughlin.  Susan was born in Scotland but did have an affinity for singing mostly Irish songs as a child because of her mother's family.  Her McLaughlin's came from a village outside of Derry in Northern Ireland.  Her mom played piano while her father sang.

How fun to find McLaughlin connections in the world!
