From History of Lower Scioto Valley, pg. 667:

"Stephen N. VAUGHN, fifth son of Thomas and Rebecca VAUGHN, was born Feb. 24, 1828, in Jackson County, Ohio. He was educated in the log-cabin subscription schools which he attended a short time during the winters. He was reared to farm life, and experienced many of the deprivations of pioneer life. All his life he has pursued farming and stockraising, at which he has been very successful. He was married May 25, 1858, to Lucinda D., daughter of John and Mary A. Parrel, of Pike County. They have had eight children, of whom one son and four daughters survive. Mrs. Vaughn has belonged to the Methodist church since her fifteenth year. Mr. Vaughn joined the Methodist church when eighteen years of age, and has been Trustee and Steward for a number of years. He is now Leader of the church, and is an active worker in the temperance cause. He was a Whig in politics till the organization of the Republican party, since when he has always affiliated with that party."

From A Standard History of Ross County, Ohio - Vol. 2, pg. 739:

"Stephen N. Vaughan, father of Newton A., was born in Bloomfield Township of Jackson County, and for his education attended one of the old-fashioned schools held in a log cabin and conducted on the subscription plan. Nevertheless, he obtained a very substantial education. Reared on a farm, he adopted agricul- ture as his regular pursuit and made a brilliant success of it. After leaving the home he bought a tract of land near the old farm of his father and started out as a general crop raiser and stockman. For some years he raised thoroughbred shorthorn cattle, but later specialized in the Polled Durham cattle and the O.I.C. Swine. He made his stock raising busines known far and wide by extensive advertisement, and every advertisement which he inserted in local papers or published otherwise contained the following characteristic sentence: "Dinner always ready here, lodging and meals free." He kept his farm equipped with the latest improved machinery and is said to have introduced the first mowing machine and had the first scales in Bloomfield Twp. He was a very progressive man and his success in private affairs was matched by the service he rendered the community in raising the standards of stock production. His death occurred July 19, 1901, at the age of seventy-three. Stephen N. Vaughan was maried May 25, 1858, to Lucinda D. Perrell, who was born in Pike County, Ohio, where her father, John Perrell, was a pioneer. She died June 14, 1893, her five children were: Mary R., Margaret C., Newton A., Phoebe Ann and Emma."
