Many of us have stories about Pop Pop and you are encouraged to forward that information to our webmaster so that all of us can learn more about the patriarch of this family. So for now this page is currently under construction and his story (history) will soon be forth coming. Make sure you return to this page so that you can also view the history of how his family grew in New York.
Meet Leola Lovett McLaurin. Pop Pop married her and started his family in Georgia. Leola gave birth to seven children, all whom eventually migrated to New York with the exception of Catherine who died as a young child.
Pop Pop - John W. McLaurin Sr. was born in Tiston GA, and migrated from Savannah, Georgia to New York sometime in the late 1920's. Earning a living as a self-taught barber, and construction laborer, he passed away on January 31, 1961. Looks like Pop Pop was a snazzy dresser!
