Josiah VAUGHAN

Josiah is my seventh great granduncle.  We are related through his parents, my eighth great grandparents, Captain Joseph and Joanna (THOMAS) VAUGHAN.  His name is also listed as Joseph in many records, thus finding specific records on him are rather difficult.  His sons have no records to be found at this time.  Not sure if they were raised with the surname VAUGHAN OR SHAW.

Josiah Vaughan was born 2 February 1698/9 in Middleborough, Plymouth, MA.[1]  He died 13 February 1723 in Middleborough, Plymouth, MA[2].  He was interred at the Nemasket Cemetery in Middleborough, Plymouth, MA[3].  He married Elizabeth SHURTLEF 28 January 1719/20 in Plymouth, Plymouth, MA.[4]  Elizabeth was born 6 December 1698 in Plymouth, Plymouth, MA.[5] She was the daughter of Abiel and Lydia (BARNES) SHURTLEFF.  She married second Jonathan SHAW 7 April 1736 in Plympton, Plymouth, MA.[6]  She died 1760 in Plimpton, Plymouth, MA.

Josiah and Elizabeth had the following children:

  1. Samuel was born 1719 in Plimpton, Plymouth, MA. He died in Plimpton, Plymouth, MA.
  2. Daniel was born 1721 in Plimpton, Plymouth, MA. He died 15 November 1786 in Plimpton, Plymouth, MA.
