In Memory of David Vaughn 1846 - 1924

Aug. 7, 1846
Dec. 26, 1924

This blog entry is in memory of my great-grandfather, David Vaughn, who died 86 years ago today.

The son of Julina "Lina" Vaughn and an unknown father, David Vaughn lived much of his life near New Union "Ditney" Cemetery, where he is buried. The above photograph of his tombstone was taken 20 March 2010.

David Vaughn married Sarah Myers 1 April 1872 in Crittenden County, Kentucky and then married Margaret C. Riley 24 January 1875, also in Crittenden County. My grandmother, Nettie C. Vaughn, was from the second marriage.

Do you have any info on David's first wife Sarah Myers. A few Myers researchers are trying look at Crittenden CO in the 1870's and 1880's.
