Vaughn, William G.
William G. Vaughn, who died on February 17, 1922, entered the Confederate service in January, 1862, as a private in the Republican Blues (Company C), 1st Volunteer Regiment of Georgia Infantry. At Fort Jackson, near Savannah, Ga., during September of the same year, by order of the Secretary of War, he was detailed to serve in the ordnance department at Macon, Ga., under Colonel Cooper, as a machinist. In April, 1865, he was surrendered with the other men of that department when Gen. Howell Cobb turned the city over to General Wilson, representing the United States army. Returning to Savannah, comrade Vaughn went to work at the Central Railroad Shops in the machine department, remaining there many years, as faithful an employee of the company as he had been a good soldier. Four daughters survive him.
