Long Line

In our Vaughan family, the long line is farming. It started in America when Matthew Vaughan came from Wales, They lived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. They were Quakers. In 1803, James and Matthew moved to Columbiana County, Ohio. Then in 1839 they moved to Morrow County, Ohio. James farmed both places and his sons farmed. Lindlay bought the farm next to the family farm and continued to farm there. Joseph took over the family farm. He sold the farm in the erly 1890’s after his wife died and he then moved to Morgan County, Ohio. His son, Arthur did not like farming in the hills so when he married they moved back to Morrow County and eventually bought the home farm back. Arthur’s only son, James Leroy, took over the farm and added to the acres afrer his father died. When my father became ill, my sister, EdDith Louise, came home withher husband and took over the farm. Their son, James Arthur, now has the farm and is farming it and many other rented acres. THe milk cows came when Arthur came back to Morrow County. The Jerseys were here until 2003 and now the farm has transitioned to beef cattle.
