P. Vaughn
Hi Louise-

You may have remembered by now that we've already discussed the Benner/Teachout/Vaughn/Stewart families. Although my maiden name is VAUGHN, these Vaughn's are my husband's family. He is the grandson of Howard R. Benner, making Betsey Vaughn his 2nd great grandmother.

I have found additional information on the Vaughns though. They moved to Middleburg, Cuyahoga, Ohio in 1810 from Middleburgh, Columbia, New York, and were actually the 2nd family in town. They located on the banks of the Rocky River. Betsey's father was Ephraim Vaughn s/o Jonathan Vaughn s/o Edward Vaughn. Ephraim had at least one brother named Richard who also lived in Middleburgh, OH. (There was also a William Vaughn that I have not yet placed...I think he was a younger brother or possibly an Uncle).

Jonathan Vaughn built a sawmill on the banks of the Rocky River where they located at the time of their arrival to town. Ephraim was well known and highly respected and became the first Justice of the Peace in their little town; he also built a log Gristmill further up the river north of town and north of his father's sawmill.

An interesting tidbit: A neighbor and apparently close friend (for many years) of Ephraim was SILAS BECKETT, whom he named his second son after.

This family has been a lot of fun to research! Hope this gives you what you're looking for.

Dear Louise & Irene: information was at Click on index table; then west park cemetery; click on FL-GON; then scoll down to Frick, Ruby; remember # left of name(#16824, infant is 16825) then click on her name; click screen to enlarge readability; arrow left to right to see information. Please let me know if it worked for you. I use this site to locate city of Cleveland public cemeteries plots.

RE: Benners in Riverside Cemetery
Always glad to help out! And yes, the dates do match with those on the photo I took. I didn't have to add photos for Alice or Mildred because someone had already done it. Although hard to see on Mildred's stone, it says "2nd wife of Aaron" on the bottom

Benners in Riverside Cemetery
Hello. Just wanted to let you know that there were three Benner stones next to each other in Riverside Cemetery. From left to right, Aaron Benner, wife Alice Benner and second wife Mildred Benner. They all have photographs now.
