Frank Vaughn Dead
A telegram reached JUDGE I. R. MASON this week from Hagerman, New Mexico notifying him of the death of FRANK VAUGHN, aged 37 years, and of his mother, aged 70 years. Both died the same day and a double funeral was held. The Vaughns were formerly of this city and went from here to Dougherty.

He had a daughter named Birtha or Bertha... I have pictures of her. The pictures were sent to my great great grandfather, Henry Cyfon Reeves from "your granddaughter Miss Birtha Vaughan." I know that Birtha went to high school in Oklahoma so I am assuming that after the death of her father the family moved back there.

Any clues on how this family connects to the Reeves family? Where this family come from before moving to Oklahoma? My great grandfather was born in 1889 in Doughtery.
