6857 With the death of Samuel Alexander Vaughan, 88, at his home, 1016 South Montgomery, passed the last of the Confederate veterans living in Sherman, Texas.

It was in 1864 before Mr. Vaughan saw his first service in the civil war as a member of the Bay Springs home guards under Captain Stokes Roberts, Major George, and Colonel Moreland's regiment of reserve scouts. The first skirmish which Mr. Vaughan was in was at Burnt Mills, Mississippi and soon after he was engaged in battle at Freedom Hills, Alabama. He later helped to chase carpetbaggers out of the section. Although he was only l4 years old, he served until the end of the Civil War and was honorably discharged when the regiment disbanded at Iuka Mississippi in May, 1865.

Mr. Vaughan was born January 25, 1850, near Fayetteville, Tennessee, and in 1853 moved with his parents to Iuka, Mississippi. He left his home in November of 1870 and came to Texas, arriving at Kentuckytown on December 15th. He came in a part of two covered wagons drawn by two oxen and a horse. As the educational facilities were poor he attended school in the only Church, the Campbellite, in Kentuckytown and paid $1.50 tuition and 15 cents for building upkeep. The teacher was Jim German.

Mr. Vaughan quit school and went to work driving a herd up the Chisholm Trail to Kansas. In 1871, he helped drive 1,500 steer over the Chisholm Trail, starting from the San Marcos River. He went as far as Fort Gibson in the Indian Territory, but became sick with chills and fever so bad he had to return home. That herd that was taken north was believed to be the last big herd to go through Sherman.

In March, 1872, he was married to Miss Nannie Bell Mathis, daughter of Bill Mathis, who lived on a farm near Kentuckytown, with the exception of nine years in Hunt County, until they moved to Sherman in 1911. It was only last March 25, 1936, that Mr. and Mrs.Vaughan celebrated the sixty sixth anniversary of their marriage.

The couple had nine children: Charlie R., Will F., E.E. (Gene), Callie, G. Ed, H.V. (Vince), Mac N., Estella B. and Samuel Benton.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church and the pastor, Dr. J.A. Ellis, officiated at his funeral.

6861 Without fuss or feathers, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Knaus observed Tuesday,
their Golden Wedding anniversary.

They spent the day at their home at 405 Park Street much as though it were any other day.
However, their, thoughts went back to Oct 17. 1900 in Taylor county.

It was there, at the home of her father, A. Young, that Omino Young became the bride of Frank Knaus.
There was nothing formal about the ceremony, just a good old fashioned wedding with
the Rev. Trimble, Methodist minister, tying a knot that both parties intended to keep tied.

Mrs. Knaus had come to Taylor county from Comanche when she was yet a girl and she met Mr. Knaus
only a couple of years before they were married. Mr. Knaus. came with his family to Taylor county
before there was any Abilene.

Even though he was but a small boy, he remembered how the railroad stopped at Fort Worth as it
poised for another westward jump. People there were moaning low because they thought extension
of the railroad would ruin Fort Worth.

As most pioneer men did, Mr. Knaus became adept at farming and ranching, served as a cowhand
and drove freight wagons.

Later he and Mrs. Knaus settled down on a small ranch near Abilene before they moved here in February of 1923.
Until ill health forced his retirement, he was active as a water well drilling contractor.

The Knauses had four children born to them. Mrs. Irene Orenbaum and Mrs. Inez Roden of Odessa are the daughters. The two sons, Ira Knaus and Ike Knaus both are deceased.

Neither Mr. or Mrs. Knaus have any special recipe for remaining happily married for 50 years. Nothing
unusual about it so far as they are concerned.

6875 [Jacob Büchel (Bickel) a baker "zu Massenbachausen" is listed as the father in the Lutheran church
records of Schwaigern, Weurtemberg, Germany. Schwaigern and Massenbachausen are each only about 2-3
miles from Massenbach. Anna Barbara's father is listed as Caspar Burckhardt from Ochsenburg. I think
this may possibly be an error because Ochsenburg is in Hesse a considerable distance away, and
Ochsenbach is only about 8-10 miles from Massenbach. The information was taken from transcribed
rather that original records.]

6876 [The death of Peregrine White’s oldest daughter Sarah White Young was noted in the Boston Weekly News-Letter for Friday 29 August 1755 with reference to Peregrine :]

Said Peregrine White liv’d in great Health and Vigour to the 84th Year of his Age, when a Fever carried Him off on July 22, 1704, as our News-Letter soon after inform’d the Publick : And this his Eldest Daughter was Born at Marshfield in Oct. 1663, enjoy’d her Senses and Health in good measure, till towards her End, and left four Sons surviving. Two observable Instances of the Long Lives of the very first and second Race of Children born in this happy Country."
