In Reply to: Re: Seek info early Vaughn res. of Brunswick by Dorothy Vaughn of 792

My mother's ancestry is via a Richard Vaughn of Brunswick County (Lawrenceville in particular). My great-grandmother, Mary Maude Vaughn was born circa 1878, the daughter of Richard and Polly (Jackson?) Vaughn. I do not know whether they were married; it is likely that they were not. This union produced other children besides Mary: Herman, Richard (called "Wolf"), Georgia, and Helen, all born in the late 19th century. Mary graduated from St. Paul's College with a Normal School (teaching) degree in 1899 or 1899, and was married to Rev. Walter S. Foster, a Methodist minister around that time. Their first child, richard Foster, was my grandfather, b. 1900 in Petersburg, VA.

Vaughn relatives of mind are still located in Lawrenceville, as are Graves, Greens, and Hamlins. We try to have reunions about once ever 10 years or so.
