David Hustead (1783-1821) & Jane Maxwell (1795-1821)

David Hustead and Jane Maxwell are my 4x great grandparents, the parents of my 3x great grandmother Sarah Hustead.

Most of what I know about David and Jane was documented in David’s family’s Bible and transcribed and shared on Ancestry.com. The Bible included the marriage of David to Jane Maxwell, births of David and his children, and the deaths of David, his wife, and his daughter Jane. David’s children are listed in his father’s will.

David Hustead was born in September 8, 1783 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. He was son of Robert Hustead and Sarah McDonald. Robert fought in the Revolutionary War, as did his father John.

Jane Maxwell  was born about 1795 in Pennsylvania. She was a daughter of James Maxwell and Nancy Ann Grant. James was born in Armegh, Ireland and fought in the Revolutionary War. This information was found in Lineage Book, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Vol. CIX 1929.

David and Jane married on December 22, 1811. (Around the same time, Jane’s sister Elizabeth married David’s brother Alexander.)

On the 1820 US Census, David Hustead was head of a household of 8 in Springhill, Fayette County, Pennsylvania: 1 male under age 10 (Robert was 7); 1 male aged 16-25 (unknown, not their child); 1 male aged 26-44 (David was 36); 4 females under age 10 (Lydia was 8, Ann was 5, Sarah was 3, and Maria was 1); 1 female aged 26-44 (Jane was 25).

Jane died February 19, 1821, 8 days after giving birth to her 6th child, a daughter named Jane. She was about 26 years old. David died April 14, 1821  when he was 37 years old. Their daughter Jane died April 38, 1821, at age 2 months and 19 days old.

Bartholomew Sparboro was born about 1806 in the Piedmont of Italy. His parents are unknown.

The Sparboros arrived in the United States on April 9, 1851. They traveled from Genoa, Italy on a ship named Arbace, and arrived in New York City. Their family is recorded as B. and M. Susanna Sbarboro, ages 43 and 40, and sisters Maria age 8 and Catarina age 5 months, and Guiseppe (my 2x great grandfather Joseph) age 10. I have no further record of Maria or Catarina after that passenger list. The trip likely took 2-4 weeks, and there were 85 passengers on the boat.

Daniel Vaughn (1787-1864) & Margaret Hammons (1797-1870)

Daniel Vaughn & Margaret Hammons are my 4X great grandparents, the parents of my 3x great grandmother Rhoda Vaughn.

Daniel Vaughn was born January 19, 1787 in Russell County, Virginia. He was a son of William Patrick Vaughn and Fereby Benton. According to the book History of Northwest Arkansas by Goodspeed, William and Fereby moved their family from Virginia to Warren County, Tennessee, then to Wayne County, Missouri, and then to Crawford County, Arkansas.  Sons Samuel and Daniel then settled in numerous locations in Washington County, Arkansas.

Margaret Hammons was born in 1797 in Tennessee. She was the daughter of Thomas Hammons (who served in the Revolutionary War), mother unknown.

Daniel & Margaret married in about 1811, since their first child was born in 1812. Margaret would have been about 14, and Daniel about 24. (Margaret’s sister Catherine married Daniel’s brother Samuel.)

They had 2 children in Tennessee, Rhoda in 1812 and Aletha in 1814. They had 2 children in Missouri, Isaac in 1818 and Zimri in 1821. In Arkansas they had 4 children, Catherine in 1823, Nancy in 1826, Anna in 1829 and Susan in 1832.

Daniel is listed on the 1828 Arkansas Tax List in Washington County.

On the 1830 US Census, Daniel was head of a household of 11 in Washington, Arkansas Territory: 1 male aged 5-9 (Zimri was 9); 1 male aged 10-14 (Isaac was 12); 1 male aged 20-29 (unknown); 1 male aged 40-49 (Daniel was 43); 2 females under age 5 (Nancy was 4 and Anna was 1); 1 female aged 5-9 (Catherine was 7); 1 female aged 10-14 (unknown); 2 female aged 15-19 (Rhoda was 18, other is unknown) ; 1 female aged 20-29 (Margaret was 33); 1 male slave aged 10-23.

On the 1840 US Census, Daniel was head of a household of 8 in Prairie, Madison County, Arkansas: 2 males aged 15-19 (Zimri was 19, other is unknown); 1 male aged 50-59 (Daniel was 53); 1 female aged 5-9 (Susan was 8); 2 females aged 10-14 (Nancy was 14 and Anna was 11); 1 female aged 15-19 (Catherine was 17); 1 female aged 40-49 (Margaret was 43).

On January 5, 1846, Daniel was appointed Postmaster in War Eagle, Madison County, Arkansas. He served the position until February 27, 1847.

On the 1850 US Census, Daniel was 63 and Margaret was 53, and they were farming in Prairie, Madison County, Arkansas.

On the 1860 US Census, Daniel was 73 and Margaret was 63, and they were again farming in Prairie, Madison County, Arkansas.

Daniel died 1864, killed by bushwhackers in the Civil War. He was about 77 years old. His Find A Grave memorial is here. A stone in Vaughan-Whitener Cemetery in Hindsville, Madison County, Arkansas:

Samuel and Daniel Vaughn, descendants of William Patrick Vaughn, immigrant of Tretower Castle, Wales, settled Vaughn Valley in 1831. Legend has it Samuel requested to be buried where he killed his last buck, thus the founding of Vaughn Cemetery. Samuel Vaughn buried April 1852. The cemetery remained Vaughn family property thru eight generations of Daniel (gravesite unknown) to that of Buck Vaughn buried April 1990 – who killed his first and only buck here. The alpha and the omega.

In 1869, Margaret Vaughn was taxed $1 on a gold watch valued at $100 according to a US IRS Tax List.

Margaret died in October of 1870 in Madison County, Arkansas. She was 72.
