Joseph G. Vaughn

Joseph George Vaughn, 76, pioneer resident of the Entiat valley, passed away at 12:15 noon, Saturday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Flora Overman on North Wenatchee Avenue. He was born in Missouri on March 22, 1868 where he grew to manhood.
He came to Washington Territory in 1888, voted for its statehood in 1889, and lived in this state continuously until his death. He was married to Eva Jennie Stanley on June 20, 1894, at Medical Lake. She preceded him in death in 1940.
Mr. Vaughn was an early settler in the Entiat Valley, coming to that district in 1900. He was a carpenter by trade and built many homes in Entiat Valley and the vicinity. He helped build Entiat Christian Church of which he was a member and was for many years an elder.
He will also be remembered for his musical ability, taking part in the entertainment of many of the early community gatherings. He moved from the Entiat in 1941 to Wenatchee, where he resided with his son, W.J. Vaughn. At the beginning of Mr. Vaughn’s illness in October of this year, all of his children were at his bedside, including the two youngest, Pfc.Herbert Vaughn, coming from Madison , WI and Staff Sgt. Alfred T. Vaughn from the Alaska service.
The other surviving children are Stanley G.; William J. Vaughn, Mrs. O.A. Overman and Elmer Vaughn, all of Wenatchee; David Vaughn of Bellingham; and Mrs. A. Ambler of Bremerton; and Daniel J. Vaughn of Omak. Also surviving are 27 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
Two grandsons are in the service, Sgt. Gene Overman of the Army Air Corps, stationed at Keesler Field, Mississippi and Homer R. Vaughn of the U.S. Marines at San Diego, California.
Funeral services will be held from the Entiat Valley Christian Church, Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock. The Rev. Rex Dallas will officiate and burial will be in the Entiat Valley Cemetery.
The following will serve as pallbearers; Orville Cannon, Elmer Moe, Ed Berg, Zinri Small, Wesley Sherman, and L.M. Sanders. Jones & Jones in charge.
