I found Willis Vaught who is the HH in the 1850 census that Augustus is
living in, in the Probate Index (no Augustus), that might give you some
documentation. His probate is dated July 20 1866, it is found in Box 148
P 162 the executor is William Vaught. There is an earlier on in 1860 for
a Jeremiah, the executors are Wm and Willia (Willis???) Vaught, that is
found in box 96, no other discription given for location within the box.
There is an Eliza J Vaught probate dated Jan 12, 1897 that executor is
listed as Albert F. Downo,maybe he's a grandson or something, you could
check that out. The 1850 census shows Willis' wife a Eliza A as you
probably know. Hope I gave you some new information.
