Excerpt from "MAINE, ITS PEOPLE" written by Harrie Coe, circa 1928.

"DANIEL WEBSTER McLAUGHLIN - By inclination and preference a farmer, and associated with agricultural interests throughout his career, Daniel Websster McLaughlin has made a thorough success of his farming properties located at Merrill and Dyer Brook, his farms being maintained in the most satisfactory state of cultivation and their product being the result of the experience and skill of the owner. Mr. McLaughlin is a public-spirited citizen, and one who has also demonstrated his capabilities in carrying the duties of those local offices to which he has from time to time been elected. Daniel Webster McLaughlin was born May 30, 1855, in New Brunswick, son of Daniel McLaughlin, who was born and brought up in that province, [and] Helen (McGeorge) McLaughlin, a native of Scotland, but who came to New Brunswick when she was six years old. Mr. and Mrs. McLaughlin came to Aroostook County in 1868, and settling at Oakfield, [and] died there, having had eight sons and one daughter, Daniel Webster McLaughlin being the youngest of their children. After attending common and high schools, Mr. McLaughlin began life as a hired man on a farm, and when he bought his farm at Dyer Brook, he worked its gardening activities in the summer, and during the winter season cut and drew wood, meantime working as a driver on the river in order to get the property paid for. He now owns his farm of two hundred and forty acres on State Road, Dyer Brook, that is worked on shares by his grandson, Kemp McLaughlin, and he [Daniel] is also owner of a two hundred acre farm on Moro Road in Merrill, where he now resides; and since he was thirteen years old, he has passed life here and at Oakfield and Dyer Brook, except for a short period of time when he visited California. In politics a Republican, Mr. McLauhhlin has held at Merill the offices of first selectman, of tax collector, of which he was the incumbant for thirteen years, and of treasurer for two years. Fraternally, he is affiliated with the lodge of Free and Accepted Masons at Island Falls, and with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows at Smyrna Mills. Daniel Webster McLaughlin married Effie Clark, who was born at Smyrna, daughter of John D. and Mary Matilda (Young) Clark; and they have two children: Clyde Drell and Cordia Aurolia. The family attends the Universalist Church."
