John Brewen Family


Descendants of John Brewen



Generation No. 1

1. JOHN2 BREWEN (ABRAM1) was born October 08, 1791 in Philadelphia,Pennsylvania, and died December 01, 1871 in Caldwell, Missouri. He married HANNAH COWGILL May 15, 1817 in Butler City, OH, daughter of DANIEL COWGILL and BETSEY MARTIN. She was born March 27, 1800 in Ohio, and died March 26, 1872 in Kingston, Missouri.

Click Here to see the will of John Brewen.

**More information about Cornelius Vaughn Sr. and the family is by Joseph George Vaughn (my great-grandfather, that was written in 1943. J.G. Vaughn is the Great-grandson of Cornelius Vaughn Sr. It was recorded and typed by J.G's son David Robert Vaughn.**

Mary Brewen's father was taken with his sister from New Orleans after yellow fever scourage, by a man named Landis, a Penn Dutch Family. It was found later that the boy and girl's parents had been Hanna (son & daughter of John Hanna in New Orleans).

Children of JOHN BREWEN and HANNAH COWGILL are:
i. MARY3 BREWEN, b. June 23, 1818, Ohio; d. May 22, 1902, Medical Lake, WA (Spokane); m. CORNELIUS VAUGHN, JR, September 01, 1840, Fayette Co, Kentucky; b. January 01, 1820, Lexington , Kentucky (Fayette Co.); d. January 14, 1903, Medical Lake, WA (Spokane).

Notes for MARY BREWEN:
August 1904: I shall report in one article the death of Cornelius and
Mary Vaughn. He was born in Lexington, Ky., Jan. 1,
1820, and was married to Mary Brewen Sept. 1, 1840;
and she was born June 23, 1818, in Hamilton Co., Ohio.
She moved from there to Grant Co. Ky., where she was
married to Cornelius Vaughn. During her early life she
was a Baptist, but after her marriaged united with the
Main Avenue Christian Church, at Lexington, Ky., of
which her husband was a member.

They made their home near Lexington, Ky., until 1866,
when they moved to Richmond, Mo. In 1876 they moved
near May View, Mo., remaining there until they moved to
Washington in 1888.

In 1892 they visited their son Alpheus Vaughn and
family, at College City, Cal., and extended their visit until
the latter part of the next year, when they again returned
to Washington, in which state they remained until death
called them hence.

After an illness of several months of asthma, followed by
heart trouble, Sister Vaughn died May 22, 1902.

Her husband, Cornelius Vaughn, survived her until Jan.
14, 1903, dying of old age, as a ripe sheaf gathered in.
They died at the home of their daughter-in-law, Mrs.
J. C. Vaughn at Spokane, Wash. Their son, J. C. Vaughn
having died there, Jan 30, 1900.

They were the parents of twelve children only two of whom
survive them, Alpheus Vaughn of College City, Cal., and
Daniel Vaughn, of Higginsville, Mo. Bro. and Sister
Vaughn both united with the Church while in the vigor of
youth, and lived consistent Christian lives, and died strong
in the faith. A most beautiful example of Christian faith
and fortitude.

It was on the occasion of their visit to California that this
writer formed an acquaintance with this aged couple of
God-fearing Christians, and become impressed with their
quiet demeanor and meek forbearance when perplexed
with perversion; but with a firm belief in the all-sufficiency
of the pure word of God, as revealed for our learning, and,
as being perfect wanting nothing, so in the light thereof,
they kept right on in the way of its teaching, steadfast in
the faith and in sound doctrine, not faltering by the way
nor digressing therefrom.
