Grandma Vaughan suffered from diabetes and went blind due to her illness. They did not know how to treat diabetes with insulin at that time. She had diabetes for a long time, and had gone blind. They laughed at her, when she said there was a bat on the was a pair of black stockings. They didn't know what to do for diabetes, then. I know they told her that she could eat honey.

Excerpt from A Standard History of Ross Co., pg. 738-740:

"On September 19, 1898, Mr. Vaughan married Jennie B. Miller. She was born in Vinton County, Ohio. Her grandfather, Thomas Miller, who was born in Pennsylvania January 14, 1809, was three years of age when his father died, and he then lived with an uncle until he was twelve, and after that with another uncle, Jacob Guy, who owned a flouring mill. Here he came into a new and varied experience, and drove a four-horse team transporting flour to Pittsburg and Allegheny City. In 1845 he came to Ohio, locating in Wilkesville Township of Vinton County, where he purchased and occupied a tract of land until 1849, and then bought another tract of 147 acres in the same township. Here he made a specialty of raising a red navy bean, which found a ready market at Gallipolis, and through raising and selling these beans he paid for his extensive land holdings. In 1866 he sold out and moved to Salem Township, in Meigs County, where he owned and occupied eighty acres until his death, on December 25, 1881. Thomas Miller married Elizabeth Smith, who was born in Pennsylvania August 5, 1813, a daughter of Philip Smith, who was a very remarkable character. He fought with the American army in the struggle for independence during the Revolution, but he continued to live on for many years and reached the remarkable age of one hundred and thirteen. He was an expert shingle maker, and his wonderful vitality is indicated by the fact that when he was one hundred and nine years of age he took a contract to rive the shingles for a large barn. In that he set as his stint the riving and stacking of 500 shingles per day, a performance which, considering his age, was probably never equaled. Mrs. Thomas Miller died August 17, 1896. Her nine children who grew up were John, Jacob G., Philip, Elizabeth, Isaac W., Thomas S., Cyrus C., Henderson S. and Catherine. Isaac W. Miller, father of Mrs. Vaughan, was born in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and for many years followed farming. When quite a young man he took up the profession of auctioneer, and he followed that for years, crying sales in Vinton and adjoining counties. He is now living retired at Wilkesville in Vinton County, where he served as justice of the peace. He married Sarah A. Booth, a daughter of Hiram and Minerva (Mannering) Booth."

"Mr. and Mrs. Vaughan are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Adelphi. The five children growing up in their home are Ernest S., Miller D., Marcella S., Loren A. and Stanley N."
