Jack Vaughn, Author of Hewers Of The Wilderness First Edition

     Jack Vaughn was born (1910) in Louisiana and passed away at Fair Hope, Al. (1975).  My purpose in publishing this second edition of "Hewers Of The Wilderness" is to acknowledge the work of Jack Vaughn and his dedication to discovering the history of the Vaughn family,  his accomplishments which  include the publication of his book, "Hewers Of The Wilderness."  Had it not been for Jack Vaughn, these stories would have been lost forever.  During the early 1920's, Jack Vaughn heard these stories from his grandmother, remembered them,  and later published these stories in his first edition book  titled  "Hewers In  The Wilderness.   Jack Vaughn's foresight saved these stories of Jim and Mary Vaughn's pioneer experiences for posterity and today Jack Vaughn and his book, "Hewers Of The Wilderness," have become a part of the Vaughn legacy.  In December 1975, Jack Vaughn was laid to rest in his beloved Twin Cemetery among the early family pioneers and the family patriarch and matriarch,   Jim Vaughn and Mary Vaughn.
