Events in My Family Tree: February 9

February 9 is a pretty busy day in my family tree.  It's sad to have two very young deaths on the list, however.

John Vaughn was born about February 9, 1888.  He was married to Bertha Florence Gaunt, daughter of James Knox Polk Gaunt and Sarah Naomi Boone, who is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
