1. Buried at Reaves Chapel Church Cemetery in Wilcox Co. AL.

2. Earlier family researchers and family lore have indicated that Polly Vaughn married Jack Vincent. Documentation of this marriage has been difficult to locate. Considering the fact that "Jack" is a commonly used nickmane for John has not solved this puzzle. A John Vincent is found listed on the 1840 Census of Wilcox Co., but this census does not indicate females were in this household. So it is not clear if he could be the spouse of Polly Vaughn. The best prospect I have found, but not proven, is the Isaac J. Vincent who signed the marriage bond for Catherine Eleanor "Kate" Vaughn for her marriage in 1849 to Neil Watkins McIntosh [Ref. Wilcox County Marriage Bonds 1841-1851]. It appears to me that it would have been appropriate and common practice for a brother-in-law to sign as surety on a marriage bond. Polly Vaughn and Catherine Eleanor "Kate" Vaughn were sisters.

3. A Step-child

4. A Step-child.

5. Not sure of the name of Jane Ann's father but John Richards and Henry richards were in Wilcox County in 1820's. In the Capell cemetery where most of our family is buried, there is a tombstone that states John Richards, uncle of W. I. and H. S. Capell, born May 8, 1781 in North Hampton Co., NC, moved to Alabama 1822, died Feb. 7, 1868. I do not know burial place of Henry Richards. In Northhampton County, NC Deed Book 26, Page 288, John and Henry, by their attorney John P. Vaughn, and some other Richards selling the land of John Richards, deceased. Another deed shows John Nugent and wife, Sally, of Perry County AL selling her part of John Richards' land. Sally Richards had married Charles Capell (brother of Thomas Capell) and moved to Alabama. The year was 1934. In Northampton County, NC there is a Will of John Richards with two sons, John and William, and several daughters, one of whom was Sara Richards Moore. Anthony Moore had a widow named Sarah who made her Will on March 4, 1816. Her daughter Rebecca was deceased and was first wife of Charles Capell. Her grandchildren were Emeline Capell, Horotio Robinson Capell, William Moore Capell, and Martha Ann Capell. Sarah Richards was one of the witnesses of the Will. In Jan. of 1817, Charles Capell married Sarah Richards. In the inventory of the estate of John Richards, Sr., deceased, taken by Ralph G. Skinner, Adm. on Dec. 23, 1832, it lists slaves being given during the lifetime of John Richards, Sr. to: Evand Richards, John Richards, Jr., William Richards, Mary M. Skinner (wife of R.G. Skinner) Sarah Capell, wife of Charles Capell (now married to a Mr. Nugent), Henry C. Richards, Alexander Richards, Richard R. Richards.

8. Notes for John Pulliam Vaughn SOURCE: (Excerpt from "Family Record-Vaughn, Sellers, Tait" 1955 by William Clanton Vaughn) - John Pulliam Vaughn was a Baptist minister. He and his wife are buried in Blue Springs Methodist Church Cemetery near Chunky in the vicinity of Meridian, Mississippi. He spent a good portion of his early life in Wilcox County, near Camden. All of his children were born there. The site of his home is on the west side of the highway, about four miles SW of Camden at the top of Pussley Creek hill. John Pulliam Vaughn and his family moved to Mississippi in 1858 or 1859. The oldest living son, William James, did not move to Mississippi with them.

9. Died in the battle of Chancellorsville, Spotsylvania Co., VA. From Stella Scott Vaughn: "Now as to the story about my Uncle Harvey Simpson Vaughn. My father told me that my Uncle 'Simps' as they called him, lost his life in the battle of the Wilderness, one of the fierces of the battles. Uncle Simps was shot through the thigh and when the surgeons went over the battlefield they passed him by, considering him among the mortally wounded. He asked the surgeon to give him a chance, that he believed he could recover. So the surgeon had him and another badly wounded soldier laid under the shade of a tree promising to come back for them. In the meantime, due to the heat from the intense firing, the wilderness caught fire and they were burned to death. Five years after the conflict the Captain of our uncle's company went to see my grandparents and gave them this information. There was never any doubt in my father's mind but that this was a correct account." COMMENTS: By E. D. Rayburn - According to the Civil War Dictionary by Mark M. Boatner, the Battle of the Wilderness occurred 5-7 May 1864 and the Chancellorsville Campaign occurred Apr-May 1863. Both were in the same area west of Fredericksburg, Virginia. From the date of death reported for Harvey Simpson Vaughn, it appears that he was killed in the Chancellorsville Campaign.

10. John Pulliam Jr. Vaughn was veteran of the Civil War and served in Company "C" 36th Mississippi Infantry Regiment; Harpers Reserves [Newton County]; joined and died in camp on September 11, 1962 at Saltillo, Lee Co., Mississippi.

Notes for Dr William James Vaughn SOURCE: Downloaded from web site "In the fall of 1987, the Vanderbilt University Board of Trust voted to name one of the University's seven original faculty houses the "Vaughn Home" in recognition of the important contributions made by the Vaughn family to the University. This was a fitting tribute to a family whose influence at the University spanned three generations. The building has served as a residence for married faculty, a dormitory for men and for women, and offices for the departments of romance languages and teaching assistants in western civilization. It presently houses the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities. From 1884 to 1912, Residence Five, as it was commonly known, was the home of Professor and Mrs. William J. Vaughn. Since the University's founding in 1875, Chancellor Landon C. Garland had been attempting to recruit William J. Vaughn to fill the mathematics chair, one of eleven chairs in the "Academic Department," now the College of Arts and Science. In 1882, Vaughn accepted Garland's offer and left the University of Alabama to join the Vanderbilt faculty at an annual salary of $2,500 and the promise of a rent-free house on campus. The crescent of homes at the heart of the campus was the site of much lively activity, as faculty members raised their children in the midst of the college. The Vaughns raised their five children--Eugene, Robert, Will, Harry, and Stella--in the faculty residence. .... William J. Vaughn served as professor of mathematics for thirty years, professor of mathematics and astronomy for sixteen years, and University librarian for twenty-six years. He is reported by many to have been a true polymath; a mathematician by training, he could read at least a dozen languages, including Sanskrit and Russian. His knowledge of history was highly regarded; his book collection of 6,000 volumes included 500 volumes in Napoleonic studies. James H. Kirkland, who became Chancellor of the University in 1893, often told a story of a trip he made to Leipzig. While there, he called upon a famous international bookseller. When the proprietor learned that Kirkland was Chancellor of Vanderbilt, he commented that he was in regular correspondence with a member of the faculty at the University by the name of William Vaughn. Chancellor Kirkland liked to recount this episode as an example of the professor's widespread reputation as a knowledgeable book collector. Professor Vaughn was also an active participant in the establishment of a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa on the campus in 1901, a tribute to the growing successes of the young University. On 17 December 1912, Professor Vaughn died at age seventy-nine at his campus home. His health had been failing during the fall term, and when he felt his death was imminent, he called for Chancellor Kirkland to come and meet with him. He instructed Kirkland, "Tell the boys for me that this is not a sad occasion, that I got more than was coming to me and have received more than was my share of the good things of life--that my classes have shared with me their youth and that perhaps they gave to me more than they received." The Vanderbilt Hustler (the student newspaper) reported his death, stating "The grand old man of Vanderbilt is gone." NOTES: William James Vaughn was b. Feb 15, 1834 and d. Dec 17, 1912 in Nashville, Tennessee. He married Abbie Maria Scott August 17, 1865. Dr. William James Vaughn was Dean of the Faculty at Vanderbilt University when he died. William James Vaughn was a great scholar and is listed in the register of students of the University of Alabama as follows: Vaughn, William James--A. B., A.M., '60, Educator, Nashville, Tenn. 1854 Blacks Bluff, Wilcox County, Alabama; John Pulliam Vaughn, Chunky Station, Mississippi and Rebecca Richards; b. February 15, 1834; LLD., University of Mississippi, 1883; Tutor of Math, U. of Alabama 1857-1860; Instructor in Latin and Greek, 1860-'63; Professor of Math, 1863-65, 1878-82; Professor of Physics and Astronomy, 1871-73; Principal of Tuscaloosa Female College, 1865-66; Principal of Centenary Female Institute, Summerfield, 1867-71; President of Tennessee Female College Franklin 1873-78; Founder of the School of Engineering, University of Alabama 1881-82; Professor of Math, Vanderbilt University 1882-96; Professor of Math and Astronomy, 1896; Chief Librarian, Vanderbilt University 1886; Married Abbie Scott, Marion, August 17, 1865. The writer expressed an opinion many years ago that Dr. Vaughn was, due to his connections with the University of Alabama and Vanderbilt and his undoubtedly high scholastic standing, the most widely known and famous of the Vaughn Family. Summerfield, Alabama is a small village about eight miles northwest of Selma. It is a very old community and in the past for many years there was a boarding school or college there. Another source wrote: William James Vaughn, M.A., LLD, was born near Camden, Alabama, February 15 1834, son of John Pulliam and Rebecca Richards Vaughn. "He attended the Old Field Schools in Wilcox County until 1853, when he enrolled as a student in the Academy of Camden to prepare for college. In 1854 he entered the University of Alabama. He received the degree of Bachelor of Arts from the University in 1857 and in 1860 the degree of Master of Arts." "He taught mathematics at the University of Alabama 1857-1860. He taught Latin and Greek 1860-1863. He was made Professor of Mathematics in 1863. Was President of Tuscaloosa Female College in 1865. Was President of Centenary Female College, Summerfield, Alabama for five years--1866-1871. He returned to the University of Alabama for two years as professor of mathematics. Was President of Tennessee Female College, Franklin, Tennessee 1873-1878. Returned to University of Alabama where he stayed until 1882 when he went to Vanderbilt University in Nashville where he was Professor of Mathematics until 1896. He was Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy from 1896 until his death, which occurred December 17, 1912. "On August 17, 1865, he married Miss Abbie Scott of Marion, Alabama, daughter of David and Stella Scott of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Their children were William Massey, Eugene Haughton, Harry Scott, Stella Scott and Robert Hargrove, all of whom were living at the time of his death. "He suffered a severe illness in the fall of 1898 which resulted in the loss of his right leg, forcing him to walk on crutches the rest of his life." The above quoted by Miss Stella Vaughn at time of his death in a newspaper clipping. She was a daughter of Dr. Vaughn. Following are some of the many personal tributes from friends: "Dr. Vaughn will never know in this world the great good he has done in setting young men on their feet and helping them to get the right grasp of
