I have a small diary of a Walter Laughead ca. 1898 which I found in a box of items bought at a garage sale in CA a number of years ago. It appears he was in the service and from Iowa. If you can provide me with info that this is your ancestor, send me an e-mail with some identifying info and I'll be happy to pass it along.

Doubtful. Our Walter Austin Laughead was born in 1883 so he would only have been 15. He seems to have lived in Illinois all his life. His father was Thomas A. Laughead and his mother Mary Friel.

I have some very good old pictures of the Laughead clan in Illinois if you are still interested, They appear to be Scot settlers in Ireland. Their tree goes way back.
