Vaughn (KY) and Hood (GA)

Family Heritage

By Sherry Vaughn Parks  

I am researching the family of James M. Vaughn born 1814 and Susan Reed born 1822. They came from the unknown to Millers Creek in Estill Co., KY where James was born and then moved to the Barbourville, Knox Co., KY area.

Other surnames are: Fuller, Williams, Wyatt, McNeil, Foley, Tipton, Estes, Jackson

I am also researching the HOOD/GRIZZLE(EL)/ CARROLL/REECE families centering around Union Co., GA but not exclusive. Other surnames are Anderson, Queen, Rogers, Sampson, Fields, Flowers, Mason, Payne, and more.

Please e-mail me of any mistakes, add-ons, or questions. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my page! Note: This information is not totally documented as official but is my compilation of my family tree from family records and research on line.
