J. B. Vaughn, widow Augusta Cooper. (indexed as 'Augula') They married Dec 1850 Escambia and he died Aug 1889 Escambia. She has resided in Escambia since 1850. (There is much more info in these, usually having to do with when and where the person served).

Here is Harriet in 1880; children's father b. AL:

        Household:

I would suspect this of being J.B. - his wife being C(?) Augusta. Could the 'niece' here be one of Benjamin F's children?
