Researching VAUGHT family, descendents of Christian VAUGHT who married Nancy about 1790. They raised their large family in Giles Co. My ancestor, James L. VAUGHT, grandson of Christian, born 1828, possibly Tazewell Co, Va., married Virginia PEERY in Montgomery Co., Va. and then migrated to Missouri by 1850. Virginia was a daughter of Miles PEERY & Harriett BARGER.

My ggggg-grandfather was Col. Christian SNIDOW. Can you tell me if his home still stands? My ggggg-uncle was John PETERS, who apparently had a brick home which stood in the Court House yard in Pearisburg, Va. Is it still there? I know from the Giles county homepage that the Johnston house used by the historical society belonged to a collateral ancestor of mine. Are there pictures available of these homes?
