Biographical Sketch of Frank E. Vaughan

Vaughan, Frank E. was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on August 6, 1865, being the son of Enoch G. and Roxie (Thompson) Vaughan, natives also of the Badger state, and tillers of the soil in the southern part of the state. In 1872 the parents with our subject removed to Nebraska, remaining there until 1881, during which time the son received his educational training in the public schools. In 1881 they took the long and weary trip overland to Wallowa county and sought out a home place in the Imnaha country, taking a preemption in the valley four and one-half miles below the bridge. He set to work raising stock and tilling the soil, continuing in the same until 1891, when he sold out and took up his present place, one quarter by homestead right, and purchasing as much more, which gives him an estate for general farming and stock raising. The parents have removed to Idaho, where they now reside.
On December 22, 1890, Mr. Vaughan married Miss Mimie Adams, daughter of Abram and Mary (Brickel) Adams, and to this union there have been born three children, as follows: Nellie R.M., Ione and Floyd A. Mrs. Vaughan was born October 3, 1870, in Portage county, Wisconsin. Mr. Vaughan is a member of Imnaha Lodge, Modern Woodmen of America.
