Submtted by Lee Zuker
Note from Lee: The following information was transcribed by Lee Zuker from the Vaughan
Family Bible. Harriet Elizabeth Vaughan is Lee Zuker’s great grandmother and the bible
came to him on the death of his mother, Ruth Lucille Emery. Harriet Vaughan married John
Henry Emry (Emery), and their son, Ralph Vaughan Emery was Ruth’s father .. Lee’s grand-
father (who died in 1971). This information is sorted by person, rather than as listed (which
was by birth, deaths and marriages. All but the data marked with an asterisk is written by one
hand. The remaining is by one or two additional persons.

(1) A double wedding (per family lore) in either Canton or Farmington Township, Fulton County Illinois
(2) Confirmed by death certificate, which also states that she was
born in Maryland, which may or may not be correct (it seems at this
point that NJ is more likely)
(3) An additional listing in the bible of Marriott names confirms
Rhoda’s maiden name as Marriott (her father Isaac, and mother Sarah)
(4) Hamilton Co. (Ohio) Marriages 1843-1884
(5) Apparently cholera was rampant in southern Ohio during the
1840’s, perhaps accounting for the large number of untimely deaths.
After 1851(1856 per her death certificate), Rhoda moved with her two
step sons, William and James, and her daughters Harriet and Sarah
(6) It seems clear that James Vaughan was married to someone first,
who was the mother of the first five children.
