COL. ARTHUR McGAUGHEY was born in Pennsylvania in 1790. During his infancy his father emigrated to Shelby County, Ky., where his boyhood was spent, and afterward located in Hart County, Ky. He served as a volunteer in the war of 1812, and after the war was commissioned Colonel of the militia by Gov. Adair. In 1819 he married Miss Julia Hume, and in 1826 moved to the southern part of Christian County, where he purchased a large tract of land, and spent his ample means building up and improving an extensive farm. He was a man of a high sense of honor, untiring energy, combined with great delicacy and refinement of feeling. He died in 1852. Albert Wallace was born in Culpeper County, Va., in 1800.
