Vaughns ...again :) The book says Nathaniel's mother's maiden name (Emily) and Nathaniel's wife's maiden name (Sophronia) was Fuller. Also states Seneca's sister married a Fuller. Author states, "I have found nothing to prove that they were related, but I believe they were." So for what its worth ... :) It looks as though Seneca's sister's name may have been Drusilla and husband listed is Asa Fuller. I am not sure where the author obtained all of this information. The book was distributed around 1995. I hope some of this information can be helpful! Sorry for all the messages.
Vaughns After I sent that, I realized I was confusing myself. I don't think Sophronia and Emily were siblings - but they both do have the Fuller last name per my book. Emily dob 1799 and Sophronia dob 1843. Maybe connected somehow but not siblings. I will keep looking :)
RE: Emily (Fuller) Vaughn Hi Emily, I obtained family genealogy book last year. It was compiled by a grandson of Frank and Delia - Frank is Miner's son. In that book it has Emily Fuller born June 5, 1799. There is a old bible entry photocopy with names and dates - Seneca Vaughn, Emily Fuller and then their children. So it isn't concrete but it is pretty close in my opinion. It says an old bible of Nathaniel funished by his grandson Floyd Vaughn. From what I can connect, Nathaniel married Sophronia Fuller - and Sophronia and Emily were sisters :) I also found that Silas married Maryetta Berry and Miner married Sarah Berry - Maryetta and Sarah were sisters - I verified that off census records. Maryetta lived to be almost 100 and lived with several family members after Silas died. I can't verify the spelling of either Maryetta/Marietta or Sophronia. Seems that people just phonetically spelled things back in the day. I would be happy to send you a picture of that if you send me your email. Happy Hunting. Are you still active on Ancestry?
a little more info I found a couple documents in this "book" talking about Miner's service in the war. I thought you would be interested in this! :)
He had a dark complexion, grey eyes, dark hair, and was 5 feet 7 inches tall. He enlisted August 21, 1864, with the occupation of ship carpenter, and he was discharge June 6, 1865. He was injured during war while on duty at Fayetteville, NC. They were ordered to tear down the rebel armory, and they were using a large pole for a battering ram when the wall suddenly gave way throwing the pole onto him and injuring him causing a rupture. He had to be carried on horse to Goldsboro, NC (about 60 miles).
He died as a result of a strangulated hernia, which was the injury sustained above.
