Ok, after further investigation I see that her name IS DRAUGHON. Seems the Census takers didn't know how to spell or couldn't understand the pronounciation of the name so in the census' it is spelled "Draughon" Braughon," and Brown. However, the Cemetery where Ruby is buried is full of "Draughons." Also, if you look at the families living near her family in the 1900-1930 Census.' they are surnames "Draughon" McCraney" & "Adams." She is definitely a "DRAUGHON." Interesting!!!!
