I have been trying for a long time now to find anything on a Mary Vaughn in Ky. She was listed on my grandfathers death certificate as his mother. All other sources list his mother as Rachel Balou Beck. The only person to mention her is an Uncle who filled out the death certificate and put her name as Mary Vaughn. I recently found a Mary Vaughn who died in Nashville Tenn. at the age of 26 and she was listed as a Mulatto, as I have no idea what that is, I am afraid she might be a woman kept and discarded when she got pregnant. She died in`1890 and it lists her address as City Hospital ward #13. I find this so very sad. If anyone can and knows how to get more information on this woman I would dearly appreciate it. thank you.
