"Like many of the better class of citizens of Callaway County, Mr. Vaughan is by nativity a son of the Old Dominion, born January 20, 1830. He was the sixth of a family of ten children of Bannister Vaughan and wife, Martha Wilson (daughter of Wm. Wilson), who were reared and married in Virginia and came to Missouri in 1843, settling here in Boone County. The other children who lived to reach maturity were Sallie, Wm, Jas., Jno., Archie, Marcellus, Lucy and Catherine--eight. The father died in Boone County in 1860. The mother survived him twenty years, dying in 1880. Sandy Vaughan was thirteen years of age when his parents removed to Missouri, and was therefore partly reared in Boone County.
"After he reached manhood, on the 7th of November, 1850, he was married to Miss Elizabeth M. Bullard, daughter of John M., and Parmelia (Barger) Bullard, her father a native of Pennsylvania, but her mother originally from Tennessee. They were early settlers in this State, however, and Mrs. Vaughan was born and reared here. John M. Bullard was a soldier in the War of 1812, and fought under Jackson at New Orleans. His widow, now closely approaching eighty years of age, lives in Boone County, near Ashland, and has never applied for a pension, not withstanding our Government pays out more annually for pensions than it costs to keep up the army of any of the awful monarchies ot tyrant-ridden Europe, so to speak.
"He and wife had a family of eleven children, Frances, Louisa M., Margaret L., Elizabeth M., Emily M., Geo. A., Mary J., John M., Edwin R., James B., and Wm. H. Mr. Vaughan was brought up to a farm life and continued it after reaching manhood. He has a comfortable place in this township of eighty acres of land in a good state of improvement and cultivation. His orchard is an exceptionally good one, and includes excellent varieties of apples, peaches, plums, cherries, etc. Mr. Vaughan and wife have had a family of nine children, five of whom are living: Jno. G., Georgie A., Edwin B., Robert E., and Inie H. Those deceased are Frances, Parmelia E., an infant and Sandy W. Mr Vaughan was in Foster Martin's Federal militia during the war, and did gallant service for the Union. He is an industrious farmer and well respected citizen."
