Direct-line Vaughan Chronology
Wales to Arrival in US 1888

Elizabeth Powel wife of Roger Vaughan born (from grave marker in Glasbury, Radnorshire). GPT, LRBT
Glasbury was in both the counties of Breconshire and Radnorshire, the Wye River running through the town. We believe the Vaughans were on the Breconshire side for the most part. Now, both ancient counties are part of Powys.

There is documented history of the negligence of Vicar and Curate. (Fairs). Jennifer Lewis, Powy Archives Researcher, agrees with interpretation. See GLV for additional explanation and sources.

John Vaughan left? or died?
John may have joined the LDS church but was later “cut off.” Check LDS Witton Park and Stockton Branch Records, JVA. Willie Lorenzo Vaughn told Gus Vaughan (son of George Robert Vaughan) that John left Maranah and family, came to America and had other children. He must have had some contact with the family in Ogden because years later, two of his daughters from the second marriage, visited Uncle Ren [William Lorenzo Vaughan?]. One of them was Martha Wellington from Walla Walla, Washington. The other lived somewhere back east. JVA.
