VAUGHAN Family of Mecklenburg & Brunswick Cos, VA

Ambrose Vaughan shows up as providing surety on several marriages in Mecklenburg Co, VA - and notes that Ambrose Vaughan is from Brunswick Co, VA.

He is identified as the father of Richard Vaughan on a marriage - and years later, he provides surety for Richard's son, William Vaughan - who would have been the grandson of Ambrose Vaughan.

An Ambrose Vaughan shows up on 2 different counties in VA in 1840 - so I do not know if he moved from one county to the other & was listed by two census-takers - or if there were 2 different Ambrose Vaughans.

Ambrose Vaughan is shown as surety on the marriage of Nancy Vaughan to John Cheatham - but it does not say he is her father, the way it does for Richard, so I am not convinced he is her father - although many researchers list him as such.

Would love to hear from informed Vaughan descendents on this.
