I would like to contact someone who is a descendant of William W. Vaughan/Vaughn, b. 10 Nov 1825 in Virginia, d. 30 Aug 1882, Vernon Co., Mo.

William was married to 2nd wife Harriet Alllison in 1855. Children I have found are George B. (1858-1894) m. Malissa Ann Burton in Vernon Co.; David W. (b abt 1864); Ann (b. abt. 1871).

Listed in the Vernon Co. births is Charles Edward Vaughn b. 1886 to G.B. and Malissia Ann Burton Vaughan.

Can anyone help?

Thomas Jefferson Deane resided in Vernon County, ( is living in Nevada City) on the 1900 and 1920 census. Died 22 April 1927. I am guessing that he was still in Vernon Co. His wife was Minerva Hackett. Does Vernon county have a cemetery index, where I can try and find this family? Thomas J. Dean/Deane born 20 March 1842, KY.

I am looking for the John Quackenbush family. They lived in Vernon Co. in the 1870's. Members include John, his wife Margaret, son Frank, possibly a son William and daughter Sophronia. They later moved to Jasper county but it is possible that Frank was buried in Vernon Co. Any help will be appreciated.

Can anyone help me with my search for my grandmother's family and their history? My grandmother was born December 11, 1898 in Vernon County, Missouri. Her parents last name was Daniel. My grandmother's name was Meda (Maida ?). My grandma married at age 14 in Bates County, Missouri to a man named James Milward. (I have copy of their marriage license.) My grandma had a sister named Ada. My grandma Meda (Maida ?) was a very quite woman and did not talk much and I never asked any questions about her family when I was a kid. Now, I would love to know about her and her family, but have no one to ask. My dad mentioned in his last few months of life that his mom, my grandma Meda (Maida ?) was American Indian. I hope that is so, but I do not know where to research this. This is all I know of my grandmother Meda (Maida ?). Not much to know about my grandma is it. Does anyone know of my grandmother's family history or be part of my grandmother's family. If so, please contact me.
