Aged Local man Dies at Hot Springs

Charles S. Vaughan was born at Burlington, Vermont on October 21, 1837, and died at Hot Springs, S. D., May 14, 1916 at the age of seventy-eight years. He lived his early boyhood in New York and his manhood in Wisconsin. For many years he worked din the lumber woods running camps, etc. During the last six years he has made his home for the greater part with his daughter and family here in this city. He has been known to many through his care and attention to his little granddaughter to whom he has been greatly devoted. He has been a member of the Masonic Order for more than fifty years, joining the order when he was twenty one years old.

At the breaking out of the war he enlisted in Company B, 1st Wis. Vol. Cav., enlisting the third day of September, 1861. He received injuries for which he was discharged from the service on October 24, 1862. As soon as he recovered he re-enlisted, his second enlistment dating from August 22, 1864, to the end of the war. Mr. Vaughan served his country as a scout, most of his service being detached from his regiment.

Mr. Vaughan leaves four living children, Mrs. Fred Root of this city, Mrs. George Brown, Ogilvie, Minn., F. H. Vaughan, New Haven, Conn., and F. L. Vaughan, of Eau Claire, Wis., the last of whom is expected to arrive on the Pierre train this morning.

The funeral will be held at the home of F. A. Root, 1118 Quincy street, this afternoon, at two o'clock, interment at Mountain View cemetery. The services both at the home and at the grave will be in charge of the Masonic Order. The Rev. D. D. Gorby will deliver a short funeral oration at the house.
