Aaron C. B. Vaughan, postmaster at Mt. Sterling, settled in Crawford Co., Wis., in 1854, locating on Copper creek, in what is now Freeman town. He resided there on a farm three years, then came to Mt. Sterling, and engaged in the boot and shoe business, in which he continued, except during his absence in the army, until 1879, at which time he was appointed postmaster. Mr. Vaughan was born in 1821, in Clinton Co., N. Y. He moved from New York to Rock Co., Wis., from there to Iowa, and from Iowa to Copper creek, now in the town of Freeman. He married Catharine Johnson, a native of New York State. Mr. and Mrs. Vaughan have two children living --- Daniel and Content. Mr. Vaughan enlisted in 1862, in the 31st Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, serving until the close of the war. He took part in the siege of Atlanta, was with Gen. Sherman on his march to the sea, and participated in the battles of Averysburg and Bentonville. His son, Anselm E., accompanied his father into the army, being a member of the same company. He died in the hospital at Columbus, Ky. He was a young man highly respected for his upright and generous character, paying strict attention to his duties as a soldier, and a friend to soldiers and his country. He was married a few days before enlistment to Cornelia Brockway, an estimable young lady, who was left to mourn the loss of a true and faithful husband.
