Death: 1901

1820 - 1901

George Washington Vaughan, son of John and Nancy Callicott Vaughan, was born May 16, 1820 in Hawkins County, Tennessee. He married Mary Jane Brown on June 25, 1840 in Hawkins County, Tennessee,I and he died in 1901.

In the 1860 census for Tishomingo County, Mississippi, George W. Vaughn, 30, was listed as a farmer born in Tennessee as are his wife and children. $600/$347 is listed. Not sure what that means. Mary Jane was 41, John F., a farm laborer was 19, Tennessee 16, Louisianna 15, George 13, Samuel 10, Mary J. 8, Nancy A. 5, and James 3.

George came to Tishomingo County in 1853. He is listed in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 Tishomingo County census and on the tax roll in 1855, 56, 59, and 87. He lived in the Bay Springs area.

George and his family moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee in southcentral part of Tennessee sometime in 1840s. In 1850 census of Lincoln County they are listed as living in Fayetteville on November 29, 1859. So their migration is from Hawkins County to Lincoln County in 1840s and then on the Mississippi around 1855, 56 or 57. In 1860 census Nancy was 5 years old and the census said she was born in Tennessee. James T. was 2 years old and was born in Mississippi.

In 1900 census of George in Tishomingo County, the census taker asked how many children to George and Mary were still living, and they said three of nine. That would be George, Samuel and James T. George and Mary died that same year.

Muster Rolls showed Pvt. George W. Vaughan present at Camp Truesdale on October 19, 1861, and at War Gap, Tennessee in 1862 and 1864.

After making two previous attempts, on his 16th birthday George Washington Vaughan was accepted into the Confederate Army. He first served in Company G of the Second Tennessee Calvary and later was transferred to Company F Sixteenth Battalion. After the war George was in Kentucky for a short time with relatives before moving on to Barry County, Missouri. Family legend says George had been in Missouri during the Civil War. It is believed that he came through the area after having escaped capture by Union forces early in the war. George eventually rejoined his Company in Virginia and served until the end of the war.
