I have been looking for William Riley Vaught. All I know about him is that he married Elizabeth and had two daughters, Emma about 1858 and Jennie about 1864 in Giles County, Virginia. Has your John Riley Vaught any history in Virginia?

I am researching the Vaught family and your John R. Vaught might be related. Were his parents William and Celia Vaught from Pulaski County, KY? If so, I would like to share info with you.

I don't have John R. Vaught's earlier line. Helen Spurlin put out a couple of books on this line in the early 1990s: Oxcarts through the Cumberland Gap and There was a Gaspar in the family. I gave my copies to NEHGS but can probably check for you.
