Navy during the Civil War, returned to Minnesota in 1865, and entered the milling business, first in Faribault and, then several other mill towns learning the trade over a period of several years. The partnership of Everett, Aughenbaugh and Co. was formed in 1877. He married Carrie Kocher in 1868. They raised three children; a son, Dana; and two daughters who became Mrs. Harry Miller and Mrs. G. W. Strong. The Aughenbaugh house has a huge veranda welcoming breezes from nearby Clear Lake. There is mahogany woodwork throughout the house. Original stenciling on the walls and ceilings are faded but still in evidence of an elegant era of Waseca's past.
