John Wesley Vaughn
Submitted by Patricia
Note from Patricia: I have found the obit for my gr-grandfather, John Wesley Vaughn. I am still
trying to find his birthplace. The obit list him as 70 years old in 1927, which would make his date
of birth as 1857. In the 1900 census of Lauderdale County, his date of birth is not listed but he is
listed as 50 years old??? The census lists his birthplace as MS and also his brother living next
door, James A. Vaughn, b. July 1861.
5 November 1927
Death claims John Vaughn. John Vaughn 70 years old and pioneer
resident of Oakland died at his home there Saturday morning at 11

The sons are Ab of California and Price, John and Robert of Oakland.
