We are seeking descendants of Peter and Joseph Laughery, born respectively in 1861 and 1864. Peter is the 7th son of Patrick Loughrey, born in 1801. Joseph seems to be his brother. Peter has Margaret (1859)for sister and Frank (1869) for brother. Patrick Loughrey had 15 children, among whom are Bernard (1834),Owen (1831) and James (1826). (Patrick married twice.) Descendants of Bernard bear the name Laughrea while descendants of Owen bear the name Loughrea. Since Peter, Joseph and Frank are registered most often as Laughery, it is likely that their descendants used this variant spelling. Patrick was born in Northern Ireland but his children, starting with Bernard were born in Quebec in the St-Sylvestre, St-Severin, St-Patrick area. Many lived there until 1871 (Owen), 1881 (Peter)and even 1891 in the case of Joseph, Bernard and Frank.
