Biographical Sketch of Charles S. Vaughn

Charles S. Vaughn, editor, was born in Medina, Ohio, September 18, 1815. He received an academic education in his native town. In the spring of 1863 he joined Battery F, Fourteenth New York Artillery. Was in the army of the Potomac under Burnside. He was captured at the battle of Weldon Railroad, and confined as a prisoner of war for four months at Pemberton, Libby and Belleville prisons. He was recaptured at Fort Steadman, but was held only six days. After the war he engaged in the stock business in Wisconsin. In 1873 came West and homesteaded in Jewell County, and in August, 1881, in conjunction with his brother, established the Western Advocate at Omio, a small town and without railroad communication, but the paper in size and matter would seem to come from a large railroad city. They are deserving of great credit for their ably conducted journal.
