James L and Benjamin F Vaughan

Selected male Descendants of James L. Vaughan, excluding the line of Benjamin Franklin Vaughan
Generation No. 1
1. JAMES L.3 VAUGHAN (JOHN2, PAT. UNKNOWN1) was born October 15, 1795 in Halifax County, Virginia. He married MARTHA “PATTY” VAUGHAN Bef. 1814, daughter of WILLIAM VAUGHAN and FEREBY BENTON. She was born January 19, 1787 in Virginia, and died Aft. 1870.
His great, great grandson, Ben Todd (1879-1967) told his family that Martha married her first cousin, James Vaughan.
In the 1830 Warren County, Tennessee Census, it is believed he appears at homestead # 374
374 James Vaughan 211001-012001
In homestead # 362 appears Beverly Harp, whos’ daughter Cherubia married James’ son Benjamin.
Freddie Todd claimed that Ben, William and Maborne were full brothers but John and Elijah were by a second wife of James.
Her great, great grandson, Ben Todd (1879-1967) told his family that Martha married her first cousin, James Vaughan.
Living at Household # 839 in Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas in 1850, along with son Elijah, age 18, however, her age is shown as “50″ which was wrong, it should have been about 63, just four houses away from her son Ben Vaughan.
In 1860 she was still in Huntsville, Madison County, Arkansas but was living with her son Elijah C.:
1016/1016 E C Vaughan 27 Merchant, born in Tennessee
Mary F. 18 born in Arkansas
Martha A. 60 born in “IND“ – either Indiana or Indian Territory?
In 1870 she was living with Ben and Cherubia in Clifty, Madison County, Arkansas, listed as being 83 years old and born in Virginia.

From; Vaughan Pioneers by Lewis Vaughan
p. 282 - All that is known of David Vaughan must be derived from the few
surviving records that pertain to him. Census records indicate he was
living in Daniel Vaughan’s household in Washington Co, AR in 1830. He
does not appear to have been Daniel’s son, however, for he received none
of the gifts of land and slaves that went to Daniel’s known descendants,
nor did David or his heirs participate in the partition of Daniel’s estate.
Tax lists show David living alternately in Madison or Washington
Counties. The 1850 census locates him in Brush Creek Twp of Washington
County. This area is immediately adjacent to Prairie Twp of Madison
County, so David in fact was living continuously in the same community
as the Madison County Vaughans. He was back in Prairie Twp at the time
of the 1860 census.
David evidently died some time in the 1860’s. His widow and some of his
children are shown living with his son Jesse in the 1870 Madison County
census. He may have died early in the decade as I do not find him
listed in the 1861 or later tax lists of Madison County.
This David Vaughn in Barry Co, MO in 1840 maybe the same as the David
on the 1850 Washington Co, AR census since the ages of David, his wife
and children over age 10 in 1850 fit in the age groupings for the 1840.
He is the only Vaughan/Vaughn in Barry Co. that year.
