Isaac C. Vaughan



Isaac C. Vaughan died at the home of his son, Dr. Vaughan, in Chicago, Thursday, Dec. 21st, of chronic diarrhea, a disease undoubtedly contracted while in the army. Some two months ago he and his wife, both in poor health, went to Chicago, hoping that the change and treatment received there would be beneficial. For a while it seemed to improve, but the change was a short duration, the disease being such that he could not rally from it.

The remains were brought to this place and the funeral held from the Cong'l Church, of which he was a member, , Sunday afternoon, the burial being in the village cemetery. There was a large attendance of friends and associates. Rev. Henry Lamb officiated, and E.R. Lilley was in charge. There were many floral tributes. The bearers were, S.E. Vaughan, L.C.Vaughan, Aquilla Darling, J.T. Stevens, L.P. Butts and Jas. Kneeland, the three former relatives and the three latter G.A.R. Comrades, members of Aaron Keeler Post of this town, to which the deceased belonged.

Isaac Chase Vaughn was born in Carver, Mass., August 1, 1834, and was therefore 77 years old. His early life was spent in Massachusetts, coming to Vermont in the fifties where, at Woodbury, in 1856, he married Miss Lucinda Blake.. Shortly after that he located in Wolcott, at which place, in 1861 he enlisted in the 2d Battery, Vt. Light Artillery. He was soon advanced to Corporal and then Sergeant, but ill health resulted in his discharge for disability in Oct., '62. He then spent a few years in Massachusetts. In 1872 he again came to Vermont, locating in Hyde Park, which place as since been his home, with the exception of a few years spent in Chicago.

During his residence here he followed for a considerable time his trade, that of stone mason, at which he was an expert. He also worked for several years for Gov. Page and for a long time drove the northern stage. In whatever Isaac engaged he performed his work well and faithfully. He was thoroughly honest. Socially he was an agreeable man, one whom everybody liked and he had no enemies.. "Uncle Isaac" will be missed and in his death not only has his family lost a dear one, but many have lost one whom they took pleasure in calling their friend.

Besides his wife he is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Flora Mitchell, of Charleston, Ill., Dr. E.E. Vaughan of Chicago, and Raymond Vaughan of this place. There are six grand children and two great grandchildren. Four brothers and two sisters also survive; S.E. Vaughan, L.C. Vaughan, , William Vaughan, Alvin Vaughan, Mrs. Hannah Cogshall, and Mrs.Addie Wade, all of Massachusetts.

Those from out of town to attend the funeral were his daughter, Mrs. Mitchell, who accompanied the remains to this place, S.E. Vaughan of Malden, Mass., L.C. Vaughan of Whitman, Mass, Floyd and D.E. Blake of Woodbury, nephews , Lyman Darling and wife of Underhill, Abram Darling and Aquilla Darling of Craftsbury
