McLaughlin Cemetery in Vankleek Hill is on Concession 7, Lot 10, Champlain Township in the United Counties of Prescott-Russell, Ontario. Before 1997 Champlain Township was West Hawkesbury Twp, Prescott County. Drivers will find the cemetery on the west side of Highway 34 south of Vankleek Hill, about 3 km north of exit off of Highway 417.

Originally a Presbyterian cemetery, McLaughlin is now a public cemetery administered by a Board of Trustees [2020]. The cemetery was originally recorded by Alex W. Fraser in 1985. A subsequent update was made in October 2003 and then updated again in August 2005, plus this 2007 update resulting in this publication.

Contents include: About Vankleek Hill & area:
    Vankleek Hill is today a vibrant town of 1800 residents: an agricultural service centre for the century-old farms in the surrounding region. It holds the title of "Gingerbread Capital of Ontario," and boasts several "trompe d'oeil" murals depicting early town life and people. The V ankleek Hill and District Historical Society is active promoting interest in and preservation of historic sites, including churches and cemeteries. The town carries the name of the Van Kleeck family, United Empire Loyalists who left the Province of New York during the American Revolution. Simeon VanKleeck, of Dutch descent, and his wife Cecilia Jaycox, of English descent, together with their three children took possession of land grants here in 1797. The front of Concession 6, today the business section of Main Street East, was once part of their farm.
