On the morning of the 26th inst., at the residence
of his son-in-law, Mr. George
F. Rozell, in this city, William R. Vaughan, in the sixty-second year of his age.
Mr. Vaughan was a native of North Carolina, but
emigrated to Mississippi at an early day, and attained an important and
influential position. He served one or more terms as a Senator in the Legislature
of that State, and was also a delegate in the famous convention of 1850(?). In
the same year he settled in Arkansas, but confined himself strictly to agricultural
pursuits during his long residence in this State, becoming one of the largest and
most successful of our planters. He was a modest, unassuming Christian
gentleman, and died in the full possession of all his faculties, resigned and ready
to meet his Maker, in the hope of a blessed immortality. Our county and city suffer
a heavy loss in his death.
