New Starts

Writing this blog is a new start for me, but I think I will talk about the new start that my great grandfather had. Joseph Vaughan was the son of James and Rhoda Cobbs Vaughan. He the youngest of the four of their children. He married Anna Hollingsworth and he continued living and working at the family farm until the death of his wife in 1891. I’m told he could not stand living on the farm anymore. He had 4 children and all but one had married and moved away. The youngest son was my grandfather Arthur Lee Vaughan. Joseph sold the farm and moved to Morgan County. He then married Martha Milhous ( a cousin of Richard Nixon) . Arthur went to Barnsville School a Quaker boarding school. Arthur wanted to farm and hated farming in the hills of Morgan County.He married Edith Holcomb and they moved to Morrow county and bought a farm on US 42 to start with then when the home farm became available he bought it. It is still in the family today.
