I am searching for my great -great uncle Cage Vaughan, brother of Joel Wesley Vaughan of Douglas County Georgia

+1 vote
I was told my Vaughan ancestors were originally from North Carolina but moved to Georgia after their land was taken because the taxes were not paid.  I was told that Cage once got so angry he cut out a mans eyes after he was dead, filled the sockets with sand and put the eyes back, and was accused of being a warlock.   I believe Cage  may have fought in the civil war but I'm not sure. I hope that time line helps.  Cage's brother Joel Wesley Vaughan, was born in 1858 in North Carolina and died in 1943 in Georgia. Joel Wesley Vaughan was the father of James Vaughan and James was the father of Joel Signal Vaughan and Joel Signal Vaughan is the father of John Lee Vaughn  (the army mispelled our last name from Vaughan to Vaughn when my dad was drafted)  and John Lee Vaughn was my dad.  I can't find any info anywhere on Cage Vaughan and he is the ancestor I am curious about.

It would help if you put in dates or approximate dates for your ancestors b/m/d.

Can't tell if you are looking for someone from the 1720's or 1880's!

If you are logged in, you can click - edit - to the right of your question and add that information.

Good Luck
