In 1880 my great grandparents (James Evans and Mary Vaughn Evans) and my grandmother
(Elizabeth Evans) lived next to John Sampson Williams and his wife Elizabeth Irene Vaughn
Williams. Small world....
I have limited records about the children of John and Irene Williams; I do show a line
coming down from George T. Williams and Iva May Petty, who were buried in the southwest
corner of Evergreen Cemetery in Lineville. I would appreciate having some more detail
about this line; I think that it is yours.
Did George T. siblings marry?
Who were Henry Petty's parents? He was Iva May's father. Pettys and Vaughns are
linked in many ways.
I have the brothers Stephen A. Vaughn (b. 1826) and John Vaughn (b. 1816) born in Wayne
County, Kentucky, and coming to Wayne County, Iowa; they descended from Rev. John Vaughn
and Mary "Polly" Lewis. I am speculating grossly that Stephen and Mary Vaughn
were parents of Rev. John. Do you have anything about the parents of Rev. John?
