John Thomas of De Soto County Mississippi: Neil Allen Bristow's Green Wolf Site. A great place to visit. Read Neil Allen's biography of his g-grandparents, John Thomas and Amanda Laughter Thomas. The well researched vignettes of the Thomas and Laughter families and Neil Allen's vivid description of life in Northern Mississippi following the Civil War are treasures.
Neil Allen provides an excellent list of links to genealogy research sites at:
W.D. (Bill) Floyd's Cemeteries and Stuff. Names and dates from cemeteries of the area that was old Tryon, Rutherford, Burke Counties, of North Carolina, and upper South Carolina. . . Plus other stuff. The site offers records from cemeteries, marriage bonds, deeds, census, slave list, old newspapers, land grants, relationships, as well as links to other local sites. A terrific resource!
The Larter Society Site. Ron Larter of Suffolk, England, maintains the Larter Society Site and has a section under construction of Laughter / Lawter surnames. Ron has researched the origin of Laughter /Lawter / Larter and other variations. You can read his comments in the Laugher Name Page. A site well worth the visit.
Ellis Island Records Site. The site has records of immigrants to the U.S. who landed on Ellis Island in New York Harbor. Ellis Island is now a national park with a museum honoring those who sailed past the Statue of Liberty to become Americans.
Pegram Family Album Index, photos and
the Pegram Genealogy Forum. In 1838, Ann Mary Laughter, daughter of John Langford Laughter, married George H. Pegram. This was the first of several unions between the families. Pegram descendants have compiled a marvelous history of their ancestors and made snippets available for others.
Roots Web Laughter / Lawter and U.S. GenWeb Laughter / Lawter Forums.
If you have questions or information of interest to all cousins, message boards may be the quickest way to reach everyone. I suggest posting to both forums.
