Weston Clark Vaughan's parents are Elisha and Anna (Wright) Vaughan. His middle name comes from his Grandmother's maiden name (Mary "Polly" Clark) she married Elkanah Vaughan - Weston's Grandfather.

He is the direct descendant of Mayflower Pilgrims Francis Cooke and James Chilton.

Weston & his 7 brothers all fought in the Civil War. All came home safe and sound. He volunteered for 4 years not just 2 and was paid a bonus for doubling his service. With the bonus, the family believes this is how he bought land in Mattapoisett, MA and why many of his descendants were born in that town. He was in the Co. E of the 32nd Massachusetts Infantry.

He not only has a veteran's medal next to his stone at Cushing Cemetery - his family has also honored him with a memorial here on Find-a-Grave and on the FOLD3 website.

When he was young he was a mariner. He then became a cordwainer during the "cowboy" days and eventually worked in the cotton mills making bed spreads (mill operative) and in the furniture business when he was older.

He or his family are mentioned and documented in many books: - Records of William Spooner, of Plymouth, Mass., and His Descendants, Volume 1 By Thomas Spooner - Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth: Part I. Historical Sketch Volumes 1-2 By William Thomas Davis - Some of the Descendants of Philip Sherman, the First Secretary of Rhode Island by Roy V. Sherman - Mayflower births, marriages & deaths: from the files of George Ernest Bowman at the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, Volume 1 - Vital Records of Rochester, Massachusetts: To the Year 1850 - Our Country and Its People: A Descriptive and Biographical Record, Part 2 By Alanson Borden - The Faunce family history and genealogy: the ancestry and descendants of John Faunce of Purleigh, Essex, England and Plymouth, Massachusetts - Plymouth memories of an octogenarian By William Thomas Davis - The Tilson genealogy, from Edmond Tilson at Plymouth, N.E., 1638 to 1911 - WILLIAM GAMMONS OF PLYMOUTH COLONY AND LIVERPOOL, NOVA SCOTIA by Richard Gammons Rouse
