~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Monday, 1 May 1837 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
State of Tennessee
Hawkins County
Be it remembered that at a County Court begun and held at the courthouse in Rogersville in the county and state aforesaid on the 1st Monday of May, 1837, and of the Independence of the United States, the 60th, before: Nicholas Fain, James L. Etter, John A. Rogers, John Stokeley, Robert Brice, John Tunnell, Edward Lee, Robert Rogers, John Mitchell, Robert D. Young, John Shough, John Ball, Nicholas Beckner, Absolom Kyle; Justices of the Peace Commissioned and assigned to hold the County Court in said county and state.

An inventory of the personal property of Wilson Vaughan, dec'd, sold by Nancy Vaughan, Administratrix, was returned to court by the said Administratrix which was received and ordered to be recorded.

1840 Nancy Vaughan is found in 1840 census (Hawkins Co) living by
Levi, with her children, with James on the other side of Levi. Wilson
is apparently deceased by then.

1842 James Bowlin sells property and cites "the line of the heirs of Wilson Vaughan" to the line of Thomas Rains.

Squire's Ledger for School Enrollment shows Nancy has enrolled her children in
school thru 1844. There are pages missing, but it appears that Nancy left Hawkins Co
at that time for KY. Levi probably has died by then. Mary, Nancy's mother, left for KY with
James Bowlin so that may have been the reason Nancy left, but we are unable to find her
listed in an 1850 census.

1849 Stokley left Fayette Co KY after having worked as a carpenter on Henry Clay's home.

1850 Stokely married Amanda Sullivan, daughter of William Sullivan and Anna Rogers on July 26, 1850. The Sullivan's originated from Hawkins Co TN although Amanda was born in Indiana..

1860 Nancy is found in 1860 census living in Carter Co KY with her sons Wesley and Clinton VAUGHAN. (Wesley, her son, goes to Civil War)

1870 Nancy Bowlin Vaughan/n in 1870, age 65, found living in Jackson Co IN with son Wesley Vaughn and his family.

1880 Nancy Bowlin Vaughan/n is living with her son, Wesley and his family in Lawrence Co IN. She is 75 years of age. She indicates on the census report that she was born in TN and her parents were born in KY.

It is probable that Nancy died and is buried in Lawrence Co IN after 1880 and before 1882,
however, we have yet to find any records of her death and where she probably is buried. Death records in Indiana were not kept before 1882.
