Emigh Family Genealogy Forum
Hello, I am doing my Vaughn genealogy and have come to believe that a daughter of John Emigh and Susanna B. were the parents of my great grandfather John M. Vaughn. In the 1850 PA census for Centre county my great great-great grandfather Christian Vaughn is a widower living with his 5 children and a Susanna Emigh. In the reprts of the same era and county there was a Sarah Vaughn who had died of a fever that killed many in that area. I believe that Sarah was the daughter of John and Sarah Emigh and that she was my 3rd great grandmother. I also believe that the families of John Emigh and that of my great-great grandfather Christian Vaughn were very close friends given the name is very popular in the Emigh Family and not the Vaughn's. Any one out there with known ties to the Vaughn's from Mifflin, Centre, and Huntingdon Counties in the early 1800's to the 1850's please contact me. Sarah E.Vaughn died just 2 months before the 1850 census was taken. Died, April 1850.
Thank you for any help you may provide.
