Benjamin and Betsy sold out in Caldwell Co and went with some of their sons to Union Co. KY about 1810. They disappeared from Union Co. I don't know if he died or moved on. There is a Benjamin and William Vaughan in Barren Co., KY about that time. But our Benjamin's son William was still in Caldwell Co. It is possible that this William might have been Benjamin's grandson.

Notes for Sarah Elizabeth Lamb:

Sarah Elizabeth Lamb Reaves Vaughn, parents Longshore and Sarah Lamb from South Carolina.

Court records Kentucky July 25, 1845.

Elizabeth Wood, Moses Clayton, William Bradshaw and wife Sally, John Clayton, Polly Ann Clayton, Phoebe Wood, Elizabeth Vaughn and Moses Lamb are now residents of the State of Kentucky. Some of the above people are children and some are grandchildren of Longshore and Sarah Lamb. Elizabeth Vaughn, formerly Lamb, is a daughter. Her husband was not named, it would appear that he had died by 1845.

These are Elizabeth Lamb Vaughn's 5 brothers and 3 sisters and where they or their children had settled by 1850.

1. Mary Lamb and her husband William Crow were both deceased in 1845, most of their children were living in Caldwell Co., KY. Their living children are listed in the legal document. Some of the Crow children settled in Jasper Co., Missouri.

2. William Lamb and wife Rebecca Unknown were both deceased in 1845, most of their children were living in Calwell Co., KY. Their living children are listed in the legal document.

3. Jensey Jane Lamb Clayton and her husband Jesse Clayton were both deceased in 1845, most of their children were living in Morgan Co., IL. Their living children are listed in the legal document.

4. Margaret (Peggy) Lamb Farmer and her husband James Farmer were both deceased in 1845, most of their children were living in Union Co., KY. Their living children are listed in the legal document.

5. Levi Lamb and his wife Mary Smith were both living in Graves Co., KY in 1845 but Levi died before the suit was over in 1848 and Mary and their living children are listed in legal document.

6. John Lamb and his wife Mary (Polly) Clayton were both living in Caldwell Co., KY in 1845. (Direct line of Linda Lamb Monticelli).

7. Moses Lamb and wife Lucinda Smith were both living in 1845. They were living in another county and then settled in Crawford Co., Arkansas.

8. Martin Lamb and his wife Polly Unknown were both living in Caldwell Co., KY in 1845 to 1850. I believe they moved somewhere else after 1850 but I don't know where. I believe that Martin Lamb moved to another state after 1850, the lawsuit was really between him and John Lamb. Longshore died without a will and his wife died after 20 years after he did and Martin apparently lived on the property with her took care of her. When she died he thought he was entitled to the land. John wanted the land sold and divided among the heirs--thus a suit. The land that Longshore owned was eventually sold and the money mainly went to Martin and John. Actually John bought it, but Martin got a lot of shares from family who were sympathetic to him.
..........

Elizabeth (Clayton) Woods, Moses Clayton, William Bradshaw and wife Sally (Clayton), John Clayton, Polly Ann Clayton, Phoebe (Clayton) Wood (these are all children of Jensey Lamb Clayton), Elizabeth (Lamb) Vaughn (she is a daughter of Longshore Lamb) and Moses Lamb (he is a son of Longshore Lamb) that are now residents of the State of Kentucky.

Elizabeth Woods, Moses Clayton, Polly Ann Clayton, and Phoebe Wood (she was more likely Phoebe Lankton) were all living in Illinois by 1850. I don't know where William and Sally (Clayton) Bradshaw or John Clayton were living by 1850.

Not sure where Moses Lamb was living in 1845, but he was not living in Caldwell Co., KY. Moses Lamb and his brother Levi Lamb were both in Union Co., KY in 1830, then Levi's wife Mary was in Grave Co., KY in 1850. Moses Lamb and his family settled in Crawford Co., Arkansas by 1850.

Elizabeth Lamb Vaughn could have been visiting Caldwell Co., KY in 1845 and was planning to return to Alabama. Elizabeth Lamb Vaughan/Vaughn was still living in 1848 because the legal documents never mentioned any heirs of hers. Also in the legal documents, they never mentioned a husbands name for Elizabeth Lamb, which was the case when they were speaking of a woman but not for a man, so I would assume he had died by 1845.
2 Elizabeth Lamb Vaughn was born in Spartanburg or Union Co. South Carolina. That is where all 9 of Longshore and Sara Lamb's children were born. She was born between 1781 - 1790.

Longshore Lamb was a son of Thomas Lamb (born 1721 in Bucks Co., PA) and Alice Longshore (born Sept. 4 1726 in PA.) They were married March 16, 1743/44 in PA. they were Quakers and moved from Bucks Co., PA first to Fairfax, VA then to Union Co., SC where they both died.

SOURCE; LIST FOR BENJAMIN VAUGAN PG-1

Generation No. 1 Benjamin Vaughn was born abt. 1747, and died unknown. He married (1) unknown. He married (2) Betsey Franch Nov. 30, 1808 in Livingston Co., KY.
This is page 1 of___ and basically just sources. The rest will be posted later.

PG 1
SOURCE LIST; for Benjamin Vaughn and families line:
The first documented record of Benjamin Vaughn that I have is where he and Samuel French witnessed a deed for Elizabeth Griggs in Anson County. It is dated 25 June 1764.
From: Anson CO Deed Abstracts, p. 150-151 by Colleen Norman.
JTR VAUGHAN' DEATH

Deed abstracts of Tyson, Lincoln and Rutherford counties, 25 July 1772, John Woods of Tyson Co., planter, to Benjamin Vaughn of same, for 20 pounds...the upward half of the plantation he lives on, granted to said Woods 22 Dec. 1770, on North side North fork Pacolet River...John Wood (Seal), Sophia Woods (+)(SEAL), Wit: Miles Hart, Alexander Coulter, David Dickey. Reed. July term 1772.

John Wood sold one-half of a piece of land to Benjamin Vaughn. Maybe Benjamin was married to John Wood's daughter. No proof of this.

The Vaughn's, Wood's, French, Pullam/Pulliam and Lamb's all lived in the same area. The area where they lived was claimed by both North and South Carolina. So you will find some records in Spartanburg Co., South Carolina and some in Rutherford Co., North Carolina.

Rutherford Co., North Carolina Deeds: French, Moses/Vaugh, Benjamin/Deed 6 April/145/1797

Kitchsides, James/Vaughn, James/Deed J-L-60 1793

Champion, Abner/Vaughan, Spencer/Deed 37-38/114 116 1830.

Benjamin Vaughn and his sons, Thomas, Joseph, and perhaps John, all came to Kentucky about 1797. William, another son stayed in Rutherford Co., and about 1807 Benjamin went back and sold the land.

Benjamin and William went back to Kentucky where Benjamin had property.
..................
In book Vaughns and Crosses by James E. Coles., it has a John Vaughn born in Rutherford Co., NC ca 1770 who married Elizabeth Thomas Vaughn born Rutherford Co. NC August 16, 1776 and wife Millie (Amelia or Permelia) born 1780 Virginia. I don't know if these Vaughns are in our lineage. Margaret Pullum's husband died bef. 1795 and in June 04, 1803 she sold one hundred forty three Acres to Thomas Liles. Signed by John Pullum, H. Montague, Leonard Daniel, Robert Davis, John Dills, James Hendrix. It looks like Margaret, John Pullum, Robert Davis, John Dills and James Hendrix all had an interest i n the property. I would assume John is either her son or her brother-in-law and the others could be her daughters husbands.
.................
The Pullum's, Wood's, French's, Vaughns and Lamb's settled in Kentucky. Margaret Pullum died in Union Co. KY. Susannah Pullum was Margaret and Thomas's daughter. Maybe Susannah Pullum married a French and he died and in 1800 she married Joseph Madison Vaughn.

These families all seem to settle in the same areas about the same time.

Ann Wood and her son, Spencer, and perhaps her husband came to Livingston Co. KY about the same time as the Vaughns. Later, when Benjamin left Caldwell County, he sold or gave the land he had to Ann and her son Spencer and to William Vaughn who remained in Caldwell County. Spencer Wood wrote a consent for William Vaughan for one of his (William Vaughn's) daughters to marry. A couple of other Woods men came to Caldwell who have the same names as John Wood's sons.

Deed papers state Benjamin selling one hundred five acres to William Vaughn for one hundred dollars in 1811 this was on Flym Fork in Caldwell County, Kentucky. After selling their property in Caldwell Co they went with some of their sons to Union Co. KY. They disappeared from Union Co.

FREE VIRGINIA INDEX; VAUGHAN'S

"The Library of Virginia (LVA) is pleased to announce the completion of an additional digital scanning project. The processing, indexing, and digital reformatting of the Charlotte County chancery causes is now complete. The images have been added to the Chancery Records Index
(CRI) on Virginia Memory . The Charlotte County chancery images span the years 1765 through 1912 (the index covers through 1914). This locality joins forty-five counties and cities whose chancery causes have been digitally reformatted and made available through the Library's innovative Circuit Court Records Preservation Program, which seeks to preserve the historic records of Virginia's Circuit Courts.

To date, The Library of Virginia has posted over 4.9 million digital chancery images. Chancery causes are cases that are decided on the basis of equity and fairness as opposed to the strictly formulated rules of common law cases. Chancery cases are especially useful when researching local history, genealogical information, and land or estate divisions.
They are a valuable source of local, state, social, and legal history and serve as a primary source for understanding a locality's history. Chancery causes often contain correspondence; property lists, including slaves; lists of heirs; and vital statistics, along with many other records. Some of the more common types of chancery causes involve divisions of the estate of a person who died intestate (without a will); divorces; settlements of dissolved business partnerships; and resolutions of land disputes.

If you have any comments, questions, or corrections regarding the CRI or scanned images, please contactchancery@lva.virginia.gov."
